Here's how the promoter's (YEA Productions) accounts might have looked:
|Table xxx. Promoter Expenses and Revenues, JGB, October 8, 1975|
839 paying customers for the 7:30 PM engagement, 1,392 for the late show, building capacity ca. 1,450 for this show.
Jerry Band getting $5k this night, opener Doug Haywood gets $300.
There were apparently posters made, though I don't think I have seen any. Lights by Photon Drive. Radio ads on KLRB, KFAT, KDON, KBEZ, KOME. Print in Sundaze, Good Times (is this the same one that started in San Francisco?), and the Santa Cruz Sentinel. The carnations are a nice touch. It also seems nice to have offered to buy the refreshments, though the rebate from Garcia Band management (Richard Loren) could be read as Garcia effectively buying this night.
Seems like a lot of work for a eleven hundred bucks, but then again, what else you gonna do on a Wednesday night? Jerry would come back down to the Del Mar twice in 1976, Thursday 2/26 (two shows) and Thursday 8/19 [JGC], the latter of which is a great show with a really attractive poster, which I'll leave you with in closing. (Notice the billing!)
