The Grande Ballroom in Detroit, Michigan was operated and managed by Russ Gibb or Uncle Russ as he was affectionately known. To many collectors, the Grande Ballroom and their two major poster artists, Gary Grimshaw & Carl Lundgren, represent the pinnacle of psychedelia. These two artists produced an enormous body of work and today some Grande Ballroom posters and handbills have sold for record-setting prices. The budget was small for the Grande, so a limited amount of posters and handbills were produced, making them quite rare and expensive. Grande Ballroom collectors are some of the fiercest fans out there!
