Car / Truck / Motorcycle Rallies
These are one of my favorite events. I have had many toys over the years and I love attending rallies and car, truck or motorcycle shows. When I get an opportunity to perform at a truck, car or motorcycle event, it is like being paid to be somewhere I may have been anyway. I have done many and hope to do many more!
You want someone who talks the talk. You may be an awesome DJ, but if you don't know the difference between a quad intake and a 4 barrel carb, you probably won't be nearly as effective. In order to make the correct announcements, you need someone who is in that world.
Most of the car and truck shows I have done cater to the older vehicles or to a specific type like VWs, Corvettes, or Minis. In most cases, these events require the sock hop tunes like the Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, the Big Bopper, etc. I have done a few shows for the imports, air rides or stereo competitions with the newer vehicles, so I can rock that format too, but most have been the typical Car Show music.
The last few I have done, I put a new twist into it. I actually used my '39 Chevy Ratrod truck to house the speakers. It is not that big of a deal, but it definitely makes it fun and draws attention!
