Fever Tree - Masonic Temple Poster 6/22/68

Fever Tree
This good-looking poster advertises a June 22, 1968 show at the Masonic Temple in Portland, Oregon that starred Fever Tree. There is no artist credit, but it was obviously created by the same artist responsible for many of the other Masonic Temple pieces of the day. This poster is in wonderful condition with a bit of handling, but no other flaws. Size: 14" x 22"

The Masonic Temple was built in 1925, at 1119 SW Park Avenue at SW Jefferson Street. The Masonic Temple building is now part of the Portland Art Museum (the address is 1219 SW Park).  The 4-story building still includes the Grand Ballroom, which is probably a remodeled version of the Ballroom used for rock concerts in the 1960s. The current capacity is about 1000 (per the site), so perhaps up to twice that many could have been squeezed in.The Masonic Temple was a regular, if intermittent venue for Portland rock concerts in the 60s.

I commissioned the art here but for life me I can't remember who it was. Jim Blashfield C. E. Weinstein and Michael Strickland did many but there were a few others over the years too.
