These past few weekends have been an adventure; I first attended the 6th annual Bo Huff Rockabilly Extravaganza at
I arrived later than anticipated, however, the parking attendants were very friendly and they put me at ease for arriving late. Parking was $10 and the entry was $10, which I consider inexpensive, that is until the ticket person didn’t give me back my change and I ended up paying more than expected, and although it’s going towards a good cause, it would be nice if she was paying attention.
I found parking close enough which made my walk in heels more bearable. When I officially entered I was lucky enough to run into the stunning, classy, pin-up sweetheart, Sharon Escamilla who won “Miss Bo Huff” at the pin-up model pageant, and to be honest, it is well deserved. She was accompanied by adorable pin-up model Josephine Jean who was very personable at first meet.
I was a little overwhelmed as to where to start, but from a distance I noticed Pin-Up Girl Clothing model, Aziza, and dancer (of Pachuco Jose y Los Diamantes) Cher who informed me she is a follower of Style Me Classic on Instagram (<--click to follow) which filled my heart with joy. I was able to chat it up for a bit and take a few pictures of them and their stylish crew. These ladies are not only beautiful, but also funny- a great combination to have.
After catching up, I decided to check out the cars that were towards the back of the lot and when I reached the area I noticed some AMAZING classic trucks owned by the “Fellas” (SoCal) car club. I didn’t get to see all the members, but I did get the pleasure to meet, David “B Bop” Garcia who was chilling in his ’65 Ford F100 while I was taking pictures. When I noticed him, I decided to approach and he was more than willing to answer my questions and give praise to the “Fellas” feature in, “Ol’ Skool Rodz” magazine March 2014 issue- an honor well deserved.
While hanging out with B Bop, I noticed a ’54 Chevy hard top that is owned by the adorable Sandra Medina- wifey of a “Dead Sleds” car club member. She took the time to praise the club that put the event together and was kind enough to introduce me to a few people hanging around.
I first met, Denise Parra and her adorable son who repped her brother's, “CePe” 1940 Mercury. I then met member, Guillermo “Memo” Rodriguez (not pictured) who is a character and insisted on taking a “prom picture” with me which had me smiling because of the many failed attempts. Memo informed me that he paid his dues not only trying to become a member of the Dead Sleds, but also to get his ’41 Chevy Master Deluxe 2 door Coupe, up and running.
After my hilarious encounter with Memo, I noticed a
Mad Max and the Wild Ones is a 4 member band that I’m happy to say are EXTREMELY talented. Lead singer, Duke Maxwell is ONLY 13 years old and the kid has not only the vocals, but the harmonica and guitar playing down. His two older brothers, Wyatt Maxwell (guitar) and Cole Maxwell (drummer) had their playing and dapper dressing skills up to par. Close friend Shane Kiel (upright bass) had a “Buddy Holly” look to him that Style Me Classic can appreciate. Duke let me know that his passion for singing and playing instruments came as early as the age of 4 and his mom, Angela, was never pushy just supportive of his love for music. Duke’s praise towards his classy mom made me want to check them out at the after party. This was my first time to witness this talented bunch and they officially gained a new fan.
Towards the end, I got to take a few more pictures of some lovely dames that were helpful and pleasant to be around. Teresa Wyman was a doll introducing me to Duke for a brief interview. Kitty Wyman was kind to introduce me to the mother of the talented bunch. Chloe Trevino and Dottie Deville were good sports for a group picture; making the end of my Bo Huff Rockabilly Extravaganza a complete success.
