“Out with the Old. In with the New.” Well, the last I knew, we were still in warm weather wondering if winter was ever coming. Not only did winter hit, but the New Year has begun!!!
What a ride in 2016. The crew of Garage71 and Grease Inc. recorded thousands of road miles. We replaced a transmission in our box truck and ordered a new Monster Transmission for our ’60 Ford pickup. I can’t count the tires replaced this year from trucks to trailers; it adds up. We have been up and down the east coast, and we took our yearly road trip to the desert for Rockabilly on the Route in New Mexico. So, what’s planned for 2017? That’s what you need to be watching!
We are already locking in dates for many of our return events including Rockabilly Rumble in August, Monster Mash in October, Hell on Wheels at the end of September, and Rockabilly on the Route in June. Let me tell you though, there are going to be some new and exciting events coming this year!!! I really wish we could announce them right now, so you can block your calendar for some of these dates. I truly believe that these are so good, you will have no choice but to come and be a part of them.
This year heads into the 9 lives of Grease Inc. and Garage71. When November hits, it will be nine years that the crew has run the streets as the Garage71 wrecking crew. Over the last eight years, I clearly remember how it all began. Three of the crew, Rev. Andy, Stretch, and myself did a basement launch of Garage71 radio. No frills. No buffers. Nothing but a dream and a goal. Over time, we have been so excited to take part in many events that at one time we were merely spectators. We have become friends with many great people coast to coast and have established ourselves within an industry we still today emulate and respect. We are far from being done and our dream has evolved like the trends in our lifestyle.
In 2017, our goal is to touch our readers in a way that creates a bond that carries to the street. We live each day to experience our lifestyle the way we want, and hope to share life moments on the road through pictures and great stories. We look forward to working with, and for, local businesses harder each day. We are always coming up with new twists on old traditions, so we can keep it fresh and real. Make sure you keep up with us this year on-line at all our various social branches of Grease Inc. and Garage71. Make sure you follow our Dj’s and show hosts on their pages. They love to hear from you.
We wish you all a very happy New Year!
