This is my Car Show blog and music is ‘part and parcel’ to the nostalgia experience. As I walked from the parking lot to Bud & Anna’s car show, the Hillbilly Rock Starz Band (this link does play music) was setting up in Hodgkins Park and they told me they played country music. Thinking I’d hear this at the show I went on to shoot the cars. Click here for the Hillbilly Rock Starz band on YouTube; this link is to YouTube videos of other songs they covered and my photos are here.
The show had a DJ playing oldies but I had to walk back by the stage and the band sounded great, so I stopped to listen and shoot pictures. As I’ve already fallen down the ‘slippery slope’ of covering concerts at the Paul Gattuso sponsored August 23rd Concert in Westchester, I’m blogging this one too since it was within earshot of the Hodgkins Car Show and I very much liked the super high-energy band. Their county music was more contemporary than my ‘usual comfort zone’ but the way Lauren Jo sang, I felt ‘right at home’ like I was listening to US-99 in the 90s.
