Default John McVie's first gig with Mac

We all know (I guess) that the first Fleetwood Mac performance was at the Windsor Jazz & Blues Festival in August 1967. That was the very first lineup with Bob Brunning on bass. Does anyone know when and where the first gig with John was played?

Thanks for that. What was your source?

This is what Christopher Hjort noted in his book on this matter:

Saturday 9 (1967)
Ram Jam Club, Brixton, south London
(. . .) Tonight's Ram Jam gig may well be John McVie's debut with Fleetwood Mac.
