This year, Viva Las Bowling is proud to announce that the dynamic duo Dave Wolfe and Eva Strangelove will be MC'ing the event as we take over the entire Bowling Center on Friday, March 29th from 11am to 6pm!
Full 4-day Viva Las Vegas and 4-day car show wristband holders are invited to come up and get 2 games of bowling, shoe rental and a hot dog for an easy 5 bucks!
Prizes will be awarded for everything from a simple strike to the high-score for the day so hang out and claim the big prizes at the end of the event!
The Sailor Jerry Crew will be hanging out as well and remember if one of those ladies throw a gutter ball, you get a Sailor Jerry Gutter Shot!
In-case youre wondering - anyone who is in town is welcome to come up and check out the unique vendors and sponsor booths that will be on hand so bring a friend even if they do not have a wristband!
Folks without wristbands can bowl as well, but will pay the regular house rates. If there is a waitlist, wristband holders will have priority. But that will give you a chance to grab a drink, a bite to eat and some time to go shopping!!
Shine up your ball its gonna be a blast from the past!

Looking soooo forward to it!!!!!
i'll be there, maybe I'll meet a few of ya in person!
A lil over 2 months away. Lookin forward to helping you guys then watching Dick Dale - king of the surf guitar !
Johnnie, Bowling teams are signing up and its almost filled up. If the girls want to register have them do it soon.
Got it booked!!! Woohooooo!!!! Can't wait to see Dick Dale!!!
I wish viva would get over hiring the biggest stars from 50 yrs ago. There too freakin old to play!
YouTube "Dick Dale". Sounds pretty good to me! And I'm only 36!
When is the last time you saw Dick Dale or Little Richard perform? You might just be pleasantly surprised.
Theres a whole bunch of West Aussie hepcats heading that way!
Saw some pics of this show last year before I moved here to Kingman Az. It was on my list before I put the moving truck in gear to get here. Gonna ck out "Midnight at the Oasis" in Yuma 3/1 and Viva Las Vegas at the end of the month. Sadly I wont have my car , the engine is out right now.
A couple of months out gents
Always the highlight of my time at Viva Las Vegas! Already thinking about hot rod songs to spin, too...
Hey, Axle! When are you gonna be a guest on my radio program so we can yak about the Car Show on the air?
Maybe even give away some passes!!!
Another Canadian heading down...is there a list of the times and places all the bands are playing?
When you arrive be sure to pick up an official program which will have the entire weekends schedule.
Was hoping to plan around when I am there prior to getting there...not sure if I can hit all the days or just one or two, trying to weigh my options prior to getting there.
I normally say if you dont have anything nice to say dont say it . but when it comes to these two dingbats I have to ... I will never waiste a dime or time on Dick Dale or Little Richard ... they both suck. I have good reason Ill not bore you with . I will never go to one of their shows again. Id rather get dental work. speaking of which I will make an appt to get my wisdom teeth pulled the day they play.
I got to say that the new VLV "app" this year for scheduling and reminding me about event times is killer! I think it is going to be a big help in not missing stuff like we usually do.
I just printed my tickets for Saturday. I wont be able to make the whole ruckus but I cant wait to see Dick Dale and all the rest.
He was my inspiration for guitar when I was a youte.
I never got any good but it was a blast.
I used to see him at a dive on Beach Boulevard in the early 70's.
Thanks for the tip! Found the info I was looking for!
Saw Dick Dale in San Jose and he still smokes on that guitar !
