This is a continuation post on my recent trip to Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend #17. You can see Wednesday, Thursday, Friday by clicking on the day.

Saturday is Car Show day and BIG Car Show musical act day as well. My favorite day!

This year the acts playing at the car show were:

Imelda May (headliner)

Lloyd Price

There was also the Rockats who I saw last year and were awesome. Robert Gordon, Los Straitjackets, The Aquasonics Surf Band, and the Trashmen also took the stages at the Car show and I heard were fantastic. So lots of music to be had at the car show this year.

Friends enjoying the car show concert

I was really excited about Imelda and Lloyd and could not wait for when they took the stage. I have seen Imelda in Toronto and she was outstanding live so I was looking forward to seeing her play some of her new music and to a larger super excited crowd. I also LOVE the car show (I always see about 10 cars I want to take home lol) and the shopping that is to be had there as well so Saturday is my favorite day. BUT Sadly though I was still not 100% after getting food poisoning the night before so my favorite day was cut in half. I have limited personal pictures of the car show (I look like death) but a big thank you to my friends for documenting Saturday so I could show you it all here (Thank YouDean Villafuerte, Stephanie, and Liisa).

By the time the evening rolled around I was in much better shape and felt good enough to put on my vintage 1940s long gown and make myself look somewhat decent. Why? Because….The JIVE ACES were taking the stage in the main Ballroom and I was NOT going to miss this band.

So Happy! to have colour back in my face again 🙂


We then saw Crazy Cavan and the Rhythm Rockers and Gizzelle before jetting off to see another personal favorite band of mine “Jittery Jack with Miss Amy” from Boston! The Toronto Gang LOVES Jittery Jack and so we were out in full force to support their show and we were not disappointed.

And that my friends was the end of my Saturday at VIVA 17. Stay tuned for one more post on Sunday, when I was feeling 100% back to my old self!

  1. “Gorgeous” is certainly something you have in common with your friends, dear Liz. Love these fun Saturday snaps, seeing the swoon worthy cars and fashion offerings, and getting a glimpse at more of your Viva outfits – not to mention the toe tapping tunes that Viva-ians (Viva-ers?) were treated to this year. All more fuel on the fire of my dream to make it to Sin City for a Viva experience of my own one day.

    • ohhh I so glad you loved it Desiree! This was my 3rd Viva and I just keep having more and more fun each year! My favorite part is meeting so many new people from all over the place, but I also agree that the car show is long hot day (not this year for me since I was sick but in years past it has been). Hopefully you will attend next year and we can say hi in person! Liz 🙂
