the trod nossel

concert series

Trod Nossel was historically one the first in the region to bring public audiences right into the studio for artists' live performances, beginning as early as the 1960s. Although live performances have continued up and through the present with some local and self-managed acts, the most famous of the Trod Nossel Concert Series occurred in the 1970s, the recordings of which are still highly sought after to this day (original masters only exist in the Trod Nossel vault, yet unreleased, pirated versions taped off the radio or people who got their hands on 2nd or 3rd generation copies are floating around out on the web).

Artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Steppenwolf and Chick Corea held private, live concerts at the facility while promoting their album on radio tours, or to promote a regional performance. A select group won tickets off the radio and anywhere from 40-100+ concert-goers got the thrill of a lifetime.  The concerts were simultaneously broadcast on WPLR New Haven.










Other in-studio performances included artists appearing at the now-expanded Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, CT (Toyota Oakdale Theater) - through a partnership between the late, former Oakdale owner, Bennett Segal and Trod Nossel.  Celebrities such as George Burns, Susan Sarandon, Tom Jones, and others were some of the names that passed through. Led Zeppelin also paid a visit to Trod while passing through on tour.  The Trod Nossel Concert Series have amassed a quasi-cult following over the years.

Any photos from this collection labeled "Fleetwood Mac in a recording studio in New Haven, Connecticut, USA, October 1975", and some of the ones labeled "New Haven," were taken at Trod Nossel Studios. The photo of the band in the old car, particularly the one of Mick Fleetwood in color shows him in front of the yellow and red studio prior to it being painted blue decades later.​​​
