Rhythm Riot 2011 – Part 1

Bazinga! What a weekend at the Rhythm Riot it just gets better and better. I’ve got a whole mountain of shots to go through so bare with me as it will take a while. I covered half the weekend and Neal Reed covered the other half.  George Barris certainly was a hit at the show, taking time to speak to anyone who wanted and telling some great tales of times gone by.  The cars of Gary Hillman made the Barris visit even more special, George hadn’t seen some of these cars for 30 years. The was also a very special Model A début at the show, fresh out of Paul Burham‘s workshop, more on that later. Top bands played all weekend and people danced their shoes off. Other highlights included the burlesque skills of Cherry Shakewell and Missy Malone which were followed by a very brave chap proposing to his girlfriend on stage , luckily  the answer was yes!

I’m sure there are bits I’m forgetting so I’ll come back to those later. Massive thanks to Robin, Collette and Jerry for hosting an epic weekend.
