“The crowd and number of attendees increases every year,” Cuppetelli said. “I think because it’s an event for all ages and is a place for everyone to have a great time.”

“I wanted to bring an event like this to Lake Havasu City and we soon became approved by The Rockabilly Hall of Fame.”

Eighteen bands are expected to hit the stage at the three-day event. One special feature is a California Band known as “Minor Strut” a group of musically talented 10-year-olds. With lead band member, “Cristian” also known as “The Rockabilly Kid.”

“This band is a great hit with many, we support the Rockabilly Kid in everything he likes to do, who is also currently filming a movie in Los Angeles,” Cuppetelli said.
