Well, the time is almost here for Viva Las Vegas 18- Jennifer and I shall be leaving on Thursday and driving up to the infamous desert resort, for some superb Music, great food, hanging by the pool, trying cocktails and generally enjoying the whole sin City deal.
There sure is a lot that’s happening at the Orleans Hotel and if you can make a trip to Nevada this week and weekend, then this really be something that you will remember. Check out: http://www.vivalasvegas.net/ as that will have ALL the schedules of events and a great event this is to be seen.
I have been going to Toms gigs for over 3 decades and this brings people from all over the globe, its a must see event if you have never been before and a great way to catch up with old and new friends too.
Tons of bands to choose from too, so hope to see some of you there.
There will be new Rockabilly Bands and some famous old school ones for sure, the Sonics will be playing and i for one think that will be great to see.
Also Joe Clay will be playing, I first saw him in the early 1980’s when he was rediscovered and been many years since I have seen the old fella play and a great opportunity to see the Blonde Bomber crank out his old hits.
here is just some of the bands and Dee Jay’s that will be attending this week.
We are pleased to present the Line-Up for the
18th Annual Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender.

As you know, there are a limited number of cabanas at the pool for VLV and the hotel is getting a lot of requests so here is the plan. A cabana for Friday, Saturday or Sunday will be $250 for a day.
