    Beach Boys 1963 Sacramento, CA Fun-Filled Concert Handbill. An original blue & white paper concert flyer for The Beach Boys in concert in Sacramento, CA for two shows, Saturday afternoon & evening, September 14, 1963. Last year we sold the poster of this event for $8,750; here's the chance to get the handbill for surely a lesser price.

    Truly an advertising handbill full of fun bells & whistles. Look at all that writing! Leave it to early Beach Boys promoter Fred Vail (name at top) to pull out all the stops. Cool plugs abound: "The No. 1 Surfing Group in the Country," "Two fun filled shows," "Beach Boys Albums Given Away Free at Each Show," "Free Pictures to All Attending," "Latest Release Surfer Girl b/w Little Deuce Coupe," "Out Soon! A new LP - Surfer Girl"...

    "Pre-teen and Young Teeners $1.25 (Parent admitted free with child)," "Evening Show - All Seats 1.75 Advance, 2.00 At Door," and THEN... a letter to "Muddah & Faddah" from Alvin of the Chipmunks? Crazy! Definitely playing off comedian Allan Sherman's "Hello Mudduh, Hello Fadduh! (A Letter from Camp)," the #4 record in the U.S. right now.

    And let's not forget that great photo of the Beach Boys in their skinny ties and suits, including rare original member David Marks, and group leader/genius Brian Wilson at the very top!

    Measures a shade under 8 ½" x 11" and grades to Near Mint condition with light toning on verso. COA from Heritage Auctions.
