-Continued from my VLV 17 series-
Saturday night is the biggest night at Viva Las Vegas. The day has the highest attendance of people and everyone wears their best outfits. It's also a common day for the some of the best bands of the weekend to play.
We got to catch the roots rhythm and blues band, The Royal Rhythmaires (Texas), right after the car show. I was glad I got to see them play in the Bienville room. They always put on a great show and get people on the dance floor. I was able to get "Cajun Boy" live on film, included in the video below.
Between bands we ran up to our room to change into our evening outfits and had a quick dinner.
Doesn't everyone look nice! Look at those Crest smiles!
Next we got to see Lucky Tubb & His Modern Day Troubadours (Austin) play in the Bienville room. Texas was really representing on Saturday night! Lucky is the great nephew of the late Ernest Tubb. Backed by his Modern Day Troubadours, he plays the old honky tonk songs of past, and his own modern hillbilly tunes. One of my favorite songs he does is "Heard Your Name". He did this hit at Viva, and I have included footage in the video below.
Just a few Viva stars doing what they do!
I was really looking forward to seeing Scotty Baker (Australia). It was only a plus that he was backed up by Pat Capocci's band. I love Scotty for his witty lyrics, so luckily for me, he treated the audience to songs such as "Just Like That". I got some live footage of him, which you can see below. He is one up-standing guy!
The night continued on with lots of drinking and dancing. My vintage cocktail dress was rather uncomfortable, so at this point I changed into my late night dancing outfit- vintage Jantzen cigarette pants and a vintage wrap top. I needed to be able to dance all night!
The last band on for the night was Jittery Jack (Boston). I have gotten to know him better through my last few weekenders and he is a hoot! I really enjoy him and his performances more and more each time I see him. This time, he surprised us by asking my husband to get on stage and play a few songs with him. He was just doing rhythm guitar, so it was really no big deal, but it was exciting for us! He was debuting one of the songs on his new album, "Something Wicked This Way She Comes" and "Gonna Have a Time". They killed it! But, don't take my word for it, check it out in my video below. I love the way Jittery Jack plays his guitar, he always makes me laugh, and I mean that in a good way. He doesn't take himself too seriously, which is like a breath of fresh air. I recommend you check out his new album Gonna Have A Time With Jittery Jack. I can honestly say that it is the best album I picked up at Viva this year. All of the songs are so creative. Do yourself a favor and give a listen to "Peek-a-boo Honey" and then tell me you didn't laugh! I also came home with one of his new tee-shirts, which is a new favorite.
