Bob Masse Official Site

Bob Masse is from Canada's west coast and has been producing concert posters since the 1960s. He began his career doing posters for folk acts that came through town, in exchange for free drinks, tickets, and the opportunity to meet the musicians.
As folk became folk-rock, and Vancouver was visited by such bands as the Grateful Dead, The Doors, the Jefferson Airplane and Steve Miller, Bob continued to produce memorable concert posters for these bands, and helped pioneer the emerging psychedelic art genre. He was greatly influenced by the art and music scenes in Los Angeles and San Francisco, where he spent considerable time in the late 1960s, producing posters and album covers for various bands of the day.
