- Wisconsin Concert Poster Collection

(last updated .02-18-2016)

      This is part of a collection of over three hundred posters and program booklets for concerts and music festivals presented in Wisconsin which I have been collecting since about 1991. I attended most of these musical events. A few of the posters were obtained at various musical venues, and were for concerts presented there which had already taken place, but the posters had not yet been taken down. If the artist name is proceeded by "[program]", I have the printed program booklet for that concert, but no poster. This page is only the documentation of my private collection of posters and programs. The collection is not available for public viewing.

      When I have time, most of the named artists/groups will be linked to their entry at this Web site. I am trying to find a public or college/university library who would like my entire concert poster collection after I am gone. Several years ago, I apporached the Mills Music Library at UW-Madison(Geri Laudati: deceased & Steve Sundell: retired) in hopes that it would be digitised and placed on-line someday as part of the https://uwdc.library.wisc.edu/collections/MillsSpColl/ - "Mills Music Library Digital Collections" project begun in the summer of 2001. Unfortunately, they were not interested in receiving and digitizing any of the collection unless each individual poster was pre-designated for use in a specific on-campus course.

      Please write if you have an extra poster or concert program that can be added to this collection. I am only interested in concerts and music festivals held at a Wisconsin venue, or those held anywhere, in or out of state, by Wisconsin resident musicians. Because Pop/Rock posters have been published before and many people collect them, my only interest is in non-Pop/Rock posters which nobody I know of collects, Jazz, Folk, Bluegrass, Barbershop, Country, Classical and other genres listed on my Book Selection Criteria page.

    Artist Publicity Photos with no date
        It is unknown exactly when any of these pictures were taken. However, I would guess they were all taken sometime within the past three years (2003-2006). I have noted when and where I got them for those I can recall.

  40. Copper Box [11x8-1/2"] (02-23-2006 concert in Oshkosh)
  41. Warren Nelson and the Blue Canvas Orchestra [10x8"] (01-10-2004 concert in Fond du Lac)
  42. Road Trip [10x8"] (date?), [10x8"] (date?)
  43. Something Phonic [11x8-1/2"] (date?)

    Oshkosh Public Museum Photos with no date (ca. early 1900's)

  44. Ideal Band of Oshkosh (OPM #3555) [10x8"] (date?)
  45. Read School Boys' Band, Oshkosh (OPM n/a) [14x11"] (1915-1920?) - (partial) scanned photo
        The Read School Band was founded in 1915.
        Although this was purchased in the Museum's store, and the Museum has other copyrighted photos of the Read School Band, the original of this particular photo is not in the Museum's collection, according to Scott Cross, Archivist. The original owner/donor is unknown, and there is no record of when this photo was donated to them. So, until such time as the original unknown owner/donor contacts me otherwise, I am allowed to post this scan on this Web site.

  46. unknown band from WI or IL? (card mailed from Chicago to Oshkosh) [5-1/4x3-1/4"] (07-15-1915) - scanned postcard / address side
