Our vintage concert handbills feature performances from the Fillmore, Fillmore East, Winterland, the Avalon Ballroom and more.
The first three versions of the handbill were printed with the wrong date prior to the concert. They all measure 8 1/2" x 11".
1st printing A1 is gray ink on white paper (see FD031-D).
1st printing A2 is gray and yellow ink on white paper.
1st printing A3 is gray and coral ink on white paper.
1st printing B (see FD031-B) displays the correct concert date, is a black and white image and measures 8 1/2" x 11 1/16". It was printed before the concert.
As a founding member of the Family Dog, Kelley handled promotions for the events at the Avalon Ballroom, drawing posters and handbills. He soon met up with Stanley Mouse, and their association nurtured Kelley's success as an artist. Kelley had a natural talent for collage and a keen eye for culling and combining imagery and styles from diverse sources. Teamed with Mouse's drafting skill, collaborations became increasingly sophisticated, yet irreverent. Kelley always worked by hand, producing posters and other print graphics for a wide array of entertainment-oriented clients.
