Unofficially, the jazz sessions at the Marimba continued long after midnight.
In March 1960 Jeffery opened a larger licensed jazz venue in Carliol Square called the Downbeat Club, which started to attract a more fashionable clientele that that of the New Orleans.
Around the same time, he introduced Saturday afternoon record sessions for teenagers at the club.
Although there were several large dance halls in the town such as the Oxford Galleries and the Majestic (where the Beatles had their first live appearance in the city), there were only a handful of small, more intimate venues around at that time.Eric Burdon of the Animals was a member of a crowd that used to hang out at the Downbeat.In one interview Burdon described his bunch of friends as “like a motorcycle gang …… they were tough, hard-drinking and listened to American music”.The Club A’Gogo was situated on the second (top) floor of the Handyside Arcade building on Percy Street in Newcastle’s Haymarket area.In the early part of the 20th century the floor occupied by the Club A’Gogo had been a dental hospital.
