Blue Christmas, Miles Davis & Bob Dorough

I know many of you out there probably think we only listen to rockabilly around here........but the truth is - we are into all kinds of music - except this new crap called country.
REAL country has a fiddle, lap steel, and NO rapping.
But that is for a different rant.
Today we must tell you that Bob Dorough is a talent that is not to be missed.
Some like him - some dont:
Will Friedwald said: “Anyone who’s ever taken a singing lesson resents the hell out of Bob Dorough for having the nerve to pass himself off as a vocalist.”

I love him and hope you dig the Christmas tune with the legend - Miles Davis

I love the fact that Elvis is able to improvise and try to sing a song without really knowing the for Blue Christmas - yeah - it is a classic and this is a cool version

Thursday Pre Party May 2 VINTAGE TORQUE FEST

The city of Dubuque is way cool.  How cool?  The city is letting Vintage Torque Fest have an open header parade on Thursday May 2, 2013!
Yes, Dubuque does have a loud pipe ordinance....... but they waived it for the week of Torque Fest!
As a result we are going to rumble our way through downtown Dubuque escorted by the po-po.
ALL street legal cars are welcome to take part in this public parade.
The route will be determined around Feb.
We are still in talks with some businesses to see if they want to team up and make this an even bigger party.....
no matter what - it is gonna be a good time and we hope you will join us....
either as a participant - Or as a spectator.
Get that spot by the downtown clock tower early...cause it is gonna be a sight when a couple hundred hot rods, customs, muscle cars, motorcycles, and classics roll by.
Details will be updated on the site
