Rockabilly Rat Show

RIPS BAR • March 2nd, 2024

As part of the events planning crew I was required to be there early to set up, make arrangements and fiddle with knobs. I figured arriving an hour early was ample, but a few hot rods were already in place and the folks patiently waiting for the day’s great bands and DJs to start rockin’ the joint. Indeed a great start, add that to a great venue, great weather, great cars and great people… this was going to be a smash hit! The band line up was Spot On! The Tin Can Screamers, Thee Stillnites, The Shake Bombs and The Dust Ups and also DJ’s Dedo and Tank spinning classic rockabilly all day and kept the joint jumpin’. Car clubs such as Rat Rod Addiction, Hell City Saints, The Checs and Ghostriders were represented in the parking lot showing some of Arizona’s fi nest custom cars. It’s the best way to spend a. Saturday afternoon with a true story !!

This was the 2nd annual show and number 3 is to come so watch out for the date to be posted for next year. Don’t miss it…
