A JAN AND DEAN BOXING STYLE CONCERT POSTER
Dance & Show / In Person / Jan and Dean.... [West Covina]: July 22, n.d. (c.1960?). Lithographic poster printed in red and black.
This poster announces a concert at the West Covina High School gym with Jan and Dean as the headliners followed by a slate of rockabilly artists like the Burnette brothers and Bobby Day. Though undated, the poster probably dates from 1960, as both Dorsey Burnette and his brother Johnny (listed individually here) had singles out in the spring of that year. Jan and Dean started out performing do-wop music before discovering the surf sound of the Beach Boys. 22 x 24 in.
