Default Re: Retro Rewind - Indoor Traditional Show Jan 2014

A while back we were presented with a chance to coordinate a car show in Dubuque.
But we didn't want to do just another cookie cutter event that shows off the local Camaro club or some tricked out
2012 Mustang....
Our proposal was to bring back a distinct time.
A time before muscle cars dominated.
In effect, take the basic concept of a traditional hot rod show and throw it indoors.

This has been done with great success with Jalopyrama in MD, Grand National Roadster Show, and the World of Wheels extreme areas in Indy, KC, Chicago, and the best one - Detroit.
But even some of those events tend to let beaters in....(like mine)

What we are trying to create is a show that would bring the standard up a bit.
A show that celebrates those that take the time to get a display together the way they did back in the 50's and 60's.
A show that combines two of the most iconic symbols of America.
Cars and Guitars.
The Retro Rewind is not really anything new, but what is different about the event is going to be the sheer volume of
things to do AT the event.

We hope this event will be successful because we can team up with several players in the community that would be able to make the
Retro Rewind special. Many out of town kustom car owners will display their cars. We already have commitments from cars in IN, MI, WI, KS, IL, and IA.

Many will want to
come out to break up the winter monotony.
Example:This past Super Bowl Sunday there were 100 gearheads meeting in a parking lot in 14 degree weather while snow was flying.
This meeting was a Facebook event.....no ads. Bare Bones have positive word of mouth on their events they have done in the past, and we think Torque Fest and Iron Invasion do as well.
It is this dedication to the hot rod lifestyle that we will capture at Retro Rewind.

Our message will be spread around the midwest at car shows, antique shows, and CD, vinyl, and guitar shows with the help of several dealers that attend shows from Ohio to Kansas City.
Currently there are NO guitar shows in Iowa! This is an obvious hole that needs to be filled.
Guitar and hot rod fans will want to stay around to see the talent of JB (a big name that we are in current contract negotiations with.)

The proposal is that there would be a discounted price for going to both events - but people could go to either event by
purchasing tickets for the concert that night or just pay for the event the day of the show.
In order to get maximum exposure for the event, ads will be placed in Vintage Guitar, Guitar Player, Ol Skool Rodz,
Rod & Kulture, as well as the usual blitz of propaganda we give out to all the fans around the midwest.

Art Auction - There will be a smaller version of the Vintage Torque Fest art auction held at the Retro Rewind. The thing
that will distinguish this auction from others is the fact that half the proceeds from the auction will go directly to the artist and the other half will
go to Hannah Wells Medical Trust. Invited artists will have the ability to set up and sell their wares. This
will give the public a chance to see their items for sale as well as what the artists may be working on at the show.

7 Sins Section - Performing different feats throughout the day, 7 Sins Sideshow Circus act will amaze the crowd with their
daring stage act. Do NOT try these things at home!

Pin Up Contest - Ten girls will be chosen to get onstage and give the crowd a taste of vintage cheesecake. Get your cameras ready for the poses!

Mileage for invited cars - Retro Rewind invites any historic, kustom, cover car, or vintage show rod to take a part of the festivities. We are trying
to keep the quality of the cars higher since this is exactly what was done at indoor shows in the late 50s and early 60s.

Peoples Choice Award - $500 to the winner! The public will pick the car they think is best. If we can get a sponsor, we will try to make the
second and third place winners happy as well.

Model Display Area - Scott Baldauf will round up the usual suspects to bring out some miniature rods and customs! If you have something you would like displayed - go ahead and bring it!

Motor Matinee - Step inside the Five Flags Theater - adjoined on the east side of the building. This is an 1800's
opera house that has been updated in the 1980's to bring in choice acts to the stage. We will be using this theater throughout the day
showing documentaries, vintage racing, and perhaps some highlights from past years Torque Fests.

Bands 3 on the Tree will wow the crowd with their mix of original and swingin favorites Rumble Seat Riot will hit the stage going 90MPH and won't stop
til everyone has danced their feet off!

Indoor Swap - 8 foot tables will be available for approximately 40 dealers that would like to come to the show to sell their old vinyl, vintage motorcyle or car parts, or used music instruments.

Admission will be $10 and this gets you into BOTH the film festival and the car/cycle show.
Show hours are 9-7

Return to Five Flags Theater at 8pm
opening band open at 830pm
JB at 930pm
We are trying to keep a price point of $18-$20 for the headliner.
AND
we are going to give a discount of $5 for those that come to both events.

We have other announcements we will make later on to make this event even better, but know that this is going to be a
good time, and those looking for a good time in the winter will want to attend.


Scheduled to Appear:
Chuck the Barber
National Motorcycle Museum
Ed Tillrock
Rock N Roll Land
V8 Custom Guitars
Dubuque Tattoo Co.
Flying Weasel Garage
Retro Relics
Todd Jones
Wrenchin' Wendy Walker
Retro A Go-Go

Here is a taste of what to expect at the Retro Rewind.

Big thanks to John for what he promotes in Iowa. This is something great for the "Key City" and I am happy to be a part of #1.

This couldn't have come at a better time. Just the other day I was surfin' the HAMB thinking this Winter has been so long. It's difficult to get our 'car fix' November through April as we're burried in snow for 5 months. Once again, it's John to the rescue!

Looks like the Winter of 2014 will certianly be more tollerabe for us hot rod feens. This is a great dynamic as well, combining hotrods and guitars. Couldn't think of a better way to spend a weekend, listening to great music, looking at great cars and cool guitars.

Yes - it is early fer sure.....but -
We have to start planting the idea in people's heads now, so that way when 2014 rolls around - it is on people's schedules.
One of the problems with having a show so early in the year is that people dont really pay attention to hot rod stuff in December cause of all the holidays - so we have to start pounding it in people's heads now that our event is REALLY early in Jan.
Thanks for all the positive support.
We have a LOT of people that are going to come out.
This is really encouraging.
I hope we can make this an annual tradition.
Still working on making the big name come through!
We will keep everyone updated

Nice car. I saw it at the Monticello indoor show and was going to pass your name on to John for Torque Fest and the Retro Rewind. Then I saw the Torque Fest advertising hand-outs on your running board and knew you were already in the loop.

as many know - I have a slight infatuation with '35 or '36 Fords...........
just a personal preference for that body style....
but seeing Steve Day's car is always humbling.
He and his brother did all the work and we are SO happy to have it coming to the Retro Rewind
As you can see from the past two cars - the quality we are trying to bring to the event will be above the norm and I think the spectators and gearheads alike will appreciate this!

Sounds awesome Bob - guess we will have to figure out what is in your stable in late fall and have you park it close to the door so it is easy to get out in the middle of winter!
thanks for the support man - hopefully you will have sold that '39 La Salle by then - but it would be cool to see Steve Day's Ford next to a La Salle - since both have La Salle grills!!

I can't bring the 51 Ford that was at Torquefest. It just went to Phoenix.
