BBH 2010

I've blogged a bit about the history of Booze Broads and Hotrods in a prior post. I talked about years past and 2009 when we made the big jump from a club to a hotel. This year, we went all out and decided we wanted to put on our dream show, which was to book Carlos and the Bandidos.

The Bombshell's philosophy toward our show (this philosophy was started by Rachelle) was to bring music acts to the Bay Area who have never played or haven't played for a very long time. Our main motives are selfish because we want to see the band play and we are the only ones willing to book the show, but also a "thank you" to the San Francisco Rockabilly and hot rod scenes for giving us what we love.

None of us girls profits personally from the show, it all gets re-invested in next year's show. This last year was really the tops, here is the flier:



 The show was scheduled the week after Vegas, and we like having that weekend. There were people who came from LA, and some from England and Spain who had been over for Viva. That is one reason we time it that way. Also, it is a nice way to treat those "post-viva blues" people get after Viva Las Vegas.

I am just going to post pics from the show, and will do a later post about my adventures with Bandidos and how I have forced Neil to be my BFF. 

I will tell the BBH story with photos...lots of photos!

I so wanted to go to this. I really miss living in California and having these events a hop skip and a jump away. Looks like you all had a great time!

awww the lovely boys, Neil gives the best hugs ever, bless him.

Were their ladies with them? I used to share a flat with Neil's lovely lady Debbie so many years ago it's scary ha ha!

Looks like fun, I'm sure they had fun too!

Their ladies didn't come, we paid the flights, etc., and couldn't afford to bring over their wives. I just sent Neil a box with some stuff I found for him, and threw something in there for Debbie since I have claimed Neil as my BFF. You may know my friend Jess? The blond? She used to live with Cosmic Keith and is also friends with Debbie.
