Celebrating another anniversary this last weekend is Viva Las Vegas, the premiere Rockabilly Weekender in it’s 11th year! Each April this event brings out the finest Rockabilly performers and fans. On Friday night, the following act caught my eye on the music stage. They called themselves Rockinroll Stars and the line-up was Charlie Grace, Dale Hawkins who wrote Suzie Q and heavily influenced Credence Clearwater Revival, Otis Williams from the Temptations, and Harvey Fuqua of the Moonglows and a key figure in the development of the Motown Label. Last year even saw Sin in Linen’s own web designer Stacie Herndon-Kimrey DJ’ing as Heelgrinder. Shown here with Sin in Linen founder Sandy Glaze.
Highlights of Viva Las Vegas are checking out the cool cats at the Car Show and the kittens on the Burlesque stage. Car clubs from mostly California come out in fine form and ladies come from all over the world to compete at the Viva Las Vegas Burlesque Contest. Congratulations to winners Carolina Moon, Dia Blow, Orchid Mei and Tara Mi Sioux!
