Garrettero Kustom Photography & Art at Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion 2012!!

I had heard about the Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion that was going on last weekend and was hoping to get a glimpse of the festivities. Well I finally did and it was through some great photos from Garrettero Kustom Photography. Their photos of the cars are hot and their photos of the ladies aren’t too shabby either. Their post and pictures are below, be sure to pay them a visit as they have a pretty cool collection. Article below.

In it’s fourth year the Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion (LHRR) has definitely established itself as the biggest of it’s kind in Arizona (this may have been the case last year…but I didn’t go, now I can confirm it:) I can’t estimate numbers, but the second day, Saturday, had a huge turnout. As stated in the title, there was Rockabilly and plenty of it — the bands kicked ass. There were more pretty pin-ups than I have ever seen in one place, I’m guessing around 30 that day…and you couldn’t throw an empty PBR can without hitting a cool kulture vendor….not that I tried. The one thing there could have been a lot more of….traditional rods & customs. This isn’t a complaint, just a yearning a few of us had discussed while walking the car show area. All in all, the LHRR delivered and I’m looking forward to attending the whole 3 day event next year. Here’s some of what I saw…..

Well there’s the quick wrap-up. Our Saturday turn-around trip from Phoenix to Lake Havasu was well worth it. I missed portions of the show due to the distance of the car-show area from the action taking place by the stage…unfortunately one can’t simultaneously enjoy both and this is typical of most shows of this magnitude.

We headed out around 6:30 to grab some dinner and head back to Phoenix —it was hard to leave knowing the Chop Tops were still going to play and the event hadn’t run out of beer yet…

Looking forward to hearing promoter Kennie Cupetelli’s plans for the Tempe Reunion coming up toward the end of the year.

See you the whole three days of the next Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion next February!
