John Cipollina Tribute

Poster for John Cipollina’s Tribute Concert at The Fillmore Auditorium on June 26, 1989 – Artist: Alton kelly

Here we have a beautiful untrimmed poster for the tribute concert for John Cipollina. The beloved Quicksilver Messenger Service guitarist had a hell of a going-away party at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA. The place was packed to the gills that night with friends and well-wishers and the talent roster was practically everybody. More than two dozen names are listed and that’s just the folks on the poster. Members of Quiksilver, the Dinosaurs, the Dead, and on and on. The show date was June 26, 1989. Artwork is a husband and wife collaboration between Alton and Marguerite Kelley. She provided a beautiful photo of a beaming John Cipollina, while Alton did the drawing. This tremendous untrimmed poster measures 23 1/8″ x 31″, approximately. A truly beloved giant of the music world, John Cipollina
