Home Artists - A to K Artists - B Bay City Union

Bay City Union

Bay City Union formed in Brisbane in March 1966 and were one of Australia’s first traditional Chicago blues bands.

They released one single for Festival Records, in April 1968 before breaking up in July 1968 due to a lack of interest in blues bands.

Guitarist Matt Taylor went on to success with Chain (alongside Phil Manning) and as a solo blues artist.

Glenn Wheatley played bass in the Masters Apprentices and eventually became a highly successful manager and promoter, managing the Little River Band and John Farnham amongst others.  In 2007, Wheatley was sentenced to 15 months in prison when he was found guilty of channelling more than $650,000 through tax fraud schemes.
