Purple party – gifts from the Bolin Estate

Posted: October 14, 2013 in Classic Rock, Deep Purple Family, Deep Purple party (2013), Jämtland (County), Retrofuture, Retrofuture 6 - Celebration issue


Got a package from the Tommy Bolin Estate today, courtesy of Johnnie Bolin and Trace Keane. CD´s, shirts, buttons etc. This will be handed out for free to visitors of the upcoming Deep Purple party here in Östersund (Sweden) on November 23 at Jane Doe (see earlier posts for details). I may ask the gals who serve drinks to wear the shirts, we will see. There is going to be plenty of Tommy Bolin related stuff on this night, I think it will be a night to remember.


Today I have also prepared a greeting for the tables – a few words to the people that take part of the festivities. It sports a shot by Trace Keane taken at the Sioux City Museum (see earlier post) in which RETROFUTURE 6 (Purple edition) can be seen. On the opposit side there will be an A4 sized reproduction of the poster for the event (see earlier post). As for the posters, these will be put up around town in November as the party is closing in.

Stay tuned for more details.

(Big thanks to Johnnie & Trace!)
