“The most important collection of rock memorabilia and recordings ever assembled in one business” -Wall Street Journal
Wolfgang's was created in 2003, initially from the archives of famed concert promoter Bill Graham (born Wolfgang Grajonca). The collection not only included all of the concert memorabilia from the Bay Area dating back to the 1960s, but also the master recordings of these shows. Since then, Wolfgang's has acquired dozens of memorabilia and audio/video archives, created new products exclusive to Wolfgang's, and consigned third parties' items - compiling what the Wall Street Journal called "The most important collection of rock memorabilia and recordings ever assembled in one business!"
For 20 years Wolfgang’s has been presenting and selling the original poster artwork of famed artists, Rick Griffin, Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelly, David Singer, Bonnie Maclean, Wes Wilson, Victor Moscoso and hundreds of others. Wolfgang’s acquired these vintage posters, tickets, handbills and postcards from Bill Graham, the legendary concert promoter who commissioned most of these works. These eight unique poster series, which Wolfgang’s owns the copyright to, were created by these artists beginning in the 1960s to commemorate concerts which Bill Graham promoted.
Graham was committed to two principles - he booked only the highest quality bands and he insisted on low ticket prices.
In the same spirit as Bill Graham (born Wolfgang Grajonca), Wolfgang’s endeavors to sell this remarkable original art at affordable prices so that many can own these original posters, handbills, postcards and tickets. Whether it is the first printing or the fifth limited printing of these items, they have great future value - a fair condition set of original posters just sold for $500,000 and second and third printings regularly sell for thousands of dollars. Wolfgang’s guarantees, like Graham, the quality and authenticity of its products.
Similarly, with apparel, backstage passes, vintage magazines and vinyl, Wolfgang’s products are priced so that they can be afforded by all.
Wolfgang’s products represent our nostalgic past when great music supplemented and supported our public discourse. When protest was a good thing and resulted in real change for Black Americans, Women and Gays. When we followed real leaders who spent their time pursuing a vision not the next election. A sentimental bond to an earlier time is at the heart of Wolfgang’s.
