Can’t wait for the end of August as I get ready for my first visit to Lead East – the world’s biggest 50s party. It’s happening Wednesday August 29th thru Sunday September 2nd, 2012. That’s 5 days of rock and roll, hot cars and sock hops. I’m checking through the event schedule and checking through my wardrobe – where to go and what to wear – what’s a girl to do!
34 Oldies Bands & Doo Wop Groups!
1,800 Vintage Cars from 22 States!
I’ll be decked out in my best circle skirt and dancing shoes for some swinging good time. If you like the music of the 50’s like I do here’s some general information about the music from the Lead East web site.
“THE MUSIC: In addition to playing recorded oldies and live Doo Wop over the P.A. system in the hotel parking lot, we have an outdoor stage for bands Friday night through Sunday, an indoor stage in the Hotel Ballroom providing live entertainment from Wednesday night though Sunday night, and a third stage in the Hotel Lobby Atrium area for Open Mike opportunities, plus 50’s-60’s Karaoke from Noon Friday to 4:30 PM Sunday. We also have a live band on that indoor stage Friday night, as well as another band on our outdoor stage. Tune your radio to 87.9 FM for our low-power broadcast of our outdoor P.A. system. You can listen to it on your car radio! “
Check the Lead East Schedule of Events for the whole line up and the low down skinny on what to expect. In addition to cruisin’ and checking out classic cars there will be drive in movies, karaoke, dance contests, collectibles show and much much more. I hear it’s the friendly people that really make Lead East fun. If you’re going, watch out for me and say “Hey Viv ! ”
