The Jim Halsey: Starmaker exhibit will open Saturday, August 20. On display will be many items and memorabilia highlighting key events in Halsey’s momentous career, from gold and platinum albums marking his clients’ incredible achievements to awards and citations presented to Halsey for his contributions to the music industry.
Also shown will be posters from events worldwide where Halsey worked his promotional magic, pictures from first of their kind Las Vegas events and items from the landmark 1976 Soviet Tour, where Halsey clients Roy Clark and The Oak Ridge Boys tore a wide hole in the Iron Curtain with just their warm enthusiasm and immense musical talents. From the Halsey Archives there will be never-before-seen contracts to the stars, and guitars signed by clients and other stars.
Historic Halsey Company posters, artist rosters, contracts and artist development plans will reveal the depth to which Mr. Halsey was dedicated to his clients and the music industry, which could never be the same without him.
