1966

 

Buffalo Springfield is formed after a chance meeting on Sunset Boulevard. Within a week, the band makes it's first public appearance. They quickly secure a residency as the house band at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip. While their Whisky residency becomes legendary, the Springfield's career is slow to take off nationally. They remain close to home until the end of the year.

November 11-13 Fillmore Auditorium, San Francisco, CA Bola Sete Trio, Country Joe & Fish The Springfield moves north as the bookings dry up in the Southland. They do their first set of shows at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium, third on the bill.

November 12 Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco, CA   This was a guest set performed after their set at the Fillmore was complete.  
November 12 The Gay '90's, San Francisco, CA   Another guest set after the previous shows were completed.  
November (UD) The Ark, Sausalito, CA Moby Grape It is reported that the Springfield shared a number of bills with the Grape at the Ark but so far, none have been defintively confirmed. It is likely that these were simply guest sets.  
November 21-27 Whisky a Go Go, Los Angeles, CA The Poor A brief return to LA for the band. During one set, Peter Tork of the Monkees joins the band and he and Stills do an old tune, Alvin the Alligator. The opening act, the Poor were from Denver. On bass was Randy Meisner.

December 21-22 Whisky a Go Go, Los Angeles, CA   It was reported that the Springfield played for two days prior to the Turtles Christmas engagement. These two days were open and so it's possible these were the dates.  
December 30 Night Owl Cafe, New York City, NY   This was a guest set at the famous Night Owl, home of the Lovin' Spoonful, upon their arrival in NYC.  
December 31-January 9 Ondine's, New York City, NY   A wildly incredible stand. Stills and Palmer get into a fistfight one night on stage. Otis Redding, Mitch Ryder, The Youngbloods, Rolling Stones all attend shows. Young has another epileptic fit during another set. Palmer is eventually busted on the band's last night in New York City. Needed back in LA to fulfill obligations, the band abandons him there.

1967

The Buffalo Springfield's third single, For What It's Worth, goes Top Ten early in the year and for a brief time, they are stars. Unfortunately, they are unable to find a followup single that can match it. They also have trouble hanging on to group members as both Bruce Palmer and Neil Young depart during the year. Ken Koblun and Jim Fielder filled in on bass and Doug Hastings relaced Young on lead guitar. Both return but valuable time was lost without them and their replacements didn't make the grade.
