HULA ROCK VOL 2 WEEKENDER
Rebel Night, the long-standing New York City rockabilly monthly dance party, celebrated it’s ten year anniversary this past July in Brooklyn with a weekender dubbed “Hula Rock Vol 2.” We’ve long been fans of this fabulous party, which was started in 2005 by four Japanese music lovers. Passionate for 1950s-60s rock ‘n’ roll, the four friends drank, spun 45’s, and did their wild Japanese twist ’til the wee hours. We were lucky enough to attend the very first year, gawking at the sharply dressed jive dancers in vintage fashions. Of course, we became regulars of this extremely entertaining gathering, camera in tow!
In 2010, the Rebel crew, which also included the lovely Katie Bickert, hosted their first live music event held at the Warsaw in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This was quite monumental to greasy New Yorker’s, as it was the first rockabilly weekender in New York City. And this summer’s 2015 Hula Rock weekender was just as fantastic with some of our favorite musicians including Will & the Hi-Rollers and Josh Hi-Fi Sorheim.
