GREAZEFEST – 29 – 31 July 2022 – Cleveland Showgrounds

Our favourite Kustom Culture Rockabilly Festival.  A fantastic line up this year after a Covid Shutdown last year killed our spirits, this year is coming at us bigger and better than ever.  Ray will be DJ’ing some sets, I am emceeing the Wild West Pin Up Parade and I will have a Pop Up Salon doing Vintage Hair and Makeup and Selling a Tonne of Vintage that I don’t wear or can no longer fit into!!  Bargains galore!    BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!

That’s all from me tonight folks!  I off to bed relatively early as I start a new and exciting job tomorrow!  Nervous and excited, I’ve curled my hair twice already and ironed 15 outfits!  Sheesh!  I never iron!  Wish me luck and catch you all at classes this week or next perhaps or on the social dance floor.
