A Slice Of History From Detroit Rock City

In the 1960s, The Hideout was a popular venue off of 8 Mile and Harper where numerous up-and-coming Detroit bands would play. The Hideout was a venue that did something differently than most at the time – they frequently booked an all-female rock band to play their stage. The Pleasure Seekers originally consisted of 5 Detroit-born females, including founding member Patti Quatro and her little sister Susan Kay Quatro (known to most as Suzi Quatro), who would go on to become the first female bassist to get recognition as a major rock star.

Enjoy this classic clip of The Pleasure Seekers performing on their 1968 tour, covering the Motown classic “Reach Out (I’ll Be There).”
