Poster By Jim Parber

Jim Parber’s poster for Moby Grape at the Merced Legion Hall, March 15, 1968

Above is a poster by Merced teenager Jim Parber for a show at the Merced Legion Hall, in Merced, CA on Friday, March 15, 1968, featuring Moby Grape and the Flamin’ Groovies. The poster scan comes from an excellent website on the Merced music scene in the 1960s. What is it doing in a Grateful Dead blog?

  1. Mike, what a great project that you have taken on. I remember Anthony and Jim really well. I have spent a couple of hours on the pages today… great memories. Deacon played bass in one of my bands.. He lived in our practice shack for quite a few months. I think his girlfriend was named Donna, but it was a long time ago…

    On a more recent note, My son’s band just made the finals in Houston at the International Blues Competition… Maybe he will be going to Memphis for the finals. It is even better living the experience through your kids lives….

    I hope that all is well with you and yours…
