Before becoming a concert promoter, I ‘learned the ropes’ by promoting community dances across Greater Vancouver and Vancouver Island starting in 1969. From there, and with some of those same acts, I started to do small regional tours across BC and Alberta.
I kept a few posters printed from most of those dates. Almost all listed for sale here are mint condition original posters from those print runs back in the late ’60s and early ’70s.
The original Psychedelic posters were mostly printed on textured heavy poster stock until that paper stock was no longer available; they printed on heavy poster stock in 1970. While all posters in the Psychedelic and Concert/Dance groups are 11” x 17”, the Large Format Posters are mostly 16″ to 17” x 22” to 24” and were printed for my major show dates or tours.
A second section of this site has original promotional T Shirts/Sweathshirts/Tour Books etc from shows I either promoted or was the tour merchandiser. All garments are original but never worn. All orders come with Free Shipping to Canadian addresses.
Please make sure you visit my Facebook site – Vancouver Rock Groups from the ’60’s to the 80’s – where I post some rare pictures and share a few stories from “the road”. And check back here weekly for other items from “back then” added to this website. Stacks of posters aren’t the only memorabilia that I have in my rock ’n’ roll archives!
