Earliest “Bill Graham Presents” Posters – 1965 S.F. Mime Troupe

Eight “Bill Graham Presents” posters from 1965 that pre-date Graham’s days as a concert promoter in the S.F. Bay Area.

All of these S.F. Mime Troupe placards advertised theatrical performances only, not music of any kind. At the time, Graham was the business manager of the San Francisco Mime Troupe… a position he held from 1963 through the end of 1965.

Among the locations given on these Mime Troupe performance placards are:

  • The Committee in San Francisco
  • Berkeley Little Theatre
  • Montgomery Theatre in San Jose
  • Gate Theatre in Sausalito
  • Palo Alto Sr. High School

This video presentation was produced by music historian and collector Peter Howard; that’s me, and I can be contacted through [805] 540-0020 or by emailing pete@postercentral.com. Thank you for spending your time with me.
