2nd Annual Bomb Squad BBQ & After-Party 2012

The 'Squad did not bomb! A casual BBQ in the desert turned into a full-on car show and kick-ass after party. This Bomb Squad club event and last November's Hell City Saints show/party have confirmed that there is a healthy scene going on here in Metro-Phoenix and it's the local clubs' (and Tucsonians!) camaraderie that brings every one together.....also, beer, a great band and a couple sexy singers help too:)

The hosts showed up at about 9:45 Saturday morning at Ramada #2, Papago Park, Phoenix. The 'Saints rolled in like a hot rod parade a little over an hour later. By 1:00 the parking lot was full, the grills were going and it was a party.....

Here we have the Immortal Bastards C.C. ---these guys make it to every local show and have the sickest car club logo around. With them are a couple regulars from the Independents C.C.


This shot was at about 6pm heading out to Johnny's Eastside Tap & Grill for the after-party....

A needed nap given the band wasn't going to hit the stage for another 2 hours.

And worth the wait....VOODOO SWING!!
 The 'Squad & Johnny were fortunate enough to get Voodoo Swing & The Devil's Daughters to play the after-party ---- this inspired several devotees and the curious to stick it out after the BBQ for another four hours at the bar. Great drink specials were an extra incentive....the band ALWAYS delivers!

The Devil's Daughters rocked the place and finally got the club shirts noticed:)

It was a great day/night and my photos did not do the event justice...but I had to have some fun too:)
Next year...look out!
