    1963-03-13 [?] Columbia, [unknown venue], SC.

    Early March? 1963
    Nashville, ‘New Era’ club, TN.
    According to MC-singer (Odell) "Gorgeous" George, after notifying the public here that he was looking for a guitar player he recruited Hendrix for one of Henry Wynn’s “Supersonic Attractions” tours of the South with Aretha Franklin “the New Queen of the Blues” and Hank Ballard & the Midnighters.
    Wednesday 13 March 1963
    Columbia, [unknown venue], South Carolina, USA
    Hendrix sent a postcard home to his father: “Dear Dad, just a few words to let you know I made it to Columbia S.C. Tell everybody ‘Hello’, with love, Jimmy”.
    It has been claimed (by Odell George I presume?) that Hendrix was playing with Hank Ballard & the Midnighters at this time, but no source or evidence has been given.
