Here are the rest of my photos from the Rockin' 50's Fest. I regret that I have no pics of the bands that played in the casino lounge (The Neanderthals were especially photo-worthy!) or of anything on Sunday past 5:30 when my digital camera crapped out on me -- just before the Starlight Drifters reunion! So I have no pics of that great band doing the theme song from my comic book "Johnny Dynamite" -- darn it all! But here's a nice sampling of photos from Thursday through Sunday afternoon. If you're an attendee reading this who DOES have Starlight Drifters pics, how about emailing me a few, huh?
