Don Redman Poster


Poster for an appearance by Don Redman and His Orchestra on July 25, 1936 at the original Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa. (Close to 23 years later, at the second iteration of that venue—across the street from the first, which was destroyed by fire in 1947—Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson gave their final performances.)
