The Nevada/Vegas TailDraggers C.C. hosted a huge 5 year anniversary party for their statewide club with chapters from all over the country. The club posted an invite on Facebook for all to join them Friday in the car show parking lot for free food (great tacos!), PBR and live music supplied by
The Scoundrels (at The ScoundrelsMusic.com). Unfortunately, I had to miss the band's performance but I heard it was great and dig the 4 song CD I bought there at the show.
Here are some of the TailDragger's rides...

More Taildraggers...

Elaina Soto

The Sailor Jerry Girls

This little fella got around!! I've seen some wild photos on Facebook.

Finally, one of the big draws to the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender...is duh, the great Rockabilly bands that perform all day and night! We Phoenicians were there to support two of our local bands that played VLV this year, the Moonlight Howlers & Voodoo Swing.

After all day shooting, when nightfall came I forced myself to put the camera away and enjoy the bands and time with friends. Brendan's Pub at the Orleans Hotel was packed for both our AZ bands!
Voodoo Swing went on at 10:45 Friday night and rocked the place...I could no longer just sit and watch. I made my way to the stage and recorded this iPhone video. I missed a bit of the first verse, but got most of it. As you'll see, they kicked ass! Enjoy, "Keep On Rollin'".

Check Voodoo Swing out at Electric Lotus Label

That concludes my Viva Las Vegas 15 coverage!
I want to thank Dozer and the Taildraggers for the Friday party!
Also, my friend, model & artist, Elaina Soto for her time. Check out her work
Elaina Soto's Art & Contact info for modeling at Model Mayhem
And of course my Bomb Squad brothers, Paddy, Courtney, Leeroy, Shorty, Tommy and our caravan of Az amgios.
What a weekend!!!
See you there Next year!
