Tina Star says that “It’s all about Rockabilly; greaser, pompadour, victory curls, pin ups – all sorts of cool stuff – hot rods; there’s a huge hot rod show.”

Asked about the weather during the event, Tina Star said, “The weather was not cooperating very well. Last night, we had a dust storm go through so when we were on stage and playing drums, I couldn’t even see the crowd. And today, it’s a little bit stormy, but not too bad for me. So we’re all weathering the weather.
