Bands with Vox AC100s, part 2 ( E - J )
A Sydney band - Vox users in 1965 and 1966. George Young, rhythm guitarist, was brother of Angus, and producer of the first six AC/DC albums. The last picture (in Scottish country dancing costume), an AC100 just visible at left (?) - could just be an AC50 though.
ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK TOUR 1967
The Rocking Berries at Aldershot in November 1967 with an AC100 bass set-up. For 1964, see the bands page on the Vox AC50 website.
THE ESQUIRES 1965
Another Vox promotional picture. The Esquires were from Jonesboro, Arkansas. A short biography of the band is to be found on the garagehangover site, from which this picture originates.
THE FANATICS 1966
A small image from the brochure, Vox Teen Beat vol. 1 no. 3 (1966), three AC100s in evidence

ANNETTE FUNICELLO, 1965
Stills and a clip (aspect ratio wrong) from the film "How to stuff a wild Bikini", 1965 - probably an AC50 (less likely an AC100) sitting on top of an AC30 cab in a swivel trolley.
THE GANG 1965
A small image, probably promotional for Vox, taken c. 1965 - the roster of equipment is pretty much the same as for other bands "featured" by Vox. The picture comes from this site.
GOOD TIMES 1969
Truro City Hall, 1969, band contest. Extensive Vox backline. No AC100 amp visible (all seem to be AC50s); but two 4 x 12 cabinets, one with a trolley.
Upper left image in the composite: the band with an AC100 SDL and a Vox UL710.

AC100 cabs with large-box AC50 heads in the studio, and in a TV performance, although the performance in question does not appear on the DVD.
THE HITMAKERS 1967
In the picture, The Blackmailers on stage with the AC100 belonging to The Hitmakers (a Danish band) behind them. A clip of the Hitmakers using the amp is available here.

IKE AND TINA TURNER BAND 1966
Small images from US Vox promotional brochures - Vox Teen Beat vol. 1, no.3 (1966), and vol. 1, no. 2 (1966). No images have surfaced yet of the band on stage with AC100s and it is doubtful whether any will.
THE IMPACT (Mark 2), 1967
A Manchester band - most likely an AC100 driving two 2 x 15" cabs.
THE INCROWD, 1966
Amsterdam, 1966. The band using the AC100 as their PA amp, two microphones spliced into a single jack. Note the controls, almost maxxed out. Alan Price and other bands also used the amp for their sets. A great selecton of photos posted here. For Vox 100 watt Public Address amplifiers - dedicated units - see this page.
