BG169 announced the first-ever live performance of the Band, and artist Tuten was in the audience. The performance would be remembered for many reasons, not the least of which was the two-hour delay caused by lead guitarist Robbie Robertson's mysterious illness. Bill Graham stalled the crowd and pulled in a hypnotist to work on Robertson. It worked.
The Vault's retro and vintage pin collection ranges from round, metal, campaign-style mementos of specific concerts, events and political statements to square tokens of promotional album imagery. Many bear the likeness of a performer, album cover or the salient graphic from a poster that advertised an event. Vintage pins from as early as 1966 tout the coolest shows and hottest rockers, while our retro designs bring the greatest icons of image and sound to the lapel and knapsack.
