Listen for radio advertising locally on Sunny 104.1 and KMZQ 104.5 in Seattle. Also visit the Push Rods of Hoquiam car club at their website www.pushrods.org. There will be a big classic car show during the day on Saturday, June 30, in Hoquiam and The Ventures will present a guitar to the winner.
At the show that evening, opening for The Ventures will be the Barry Curtis Trio, NW rock at its finest. The Ventures will host a Meet and Greet VIP Party before the show, along with Barry Curtis and Steve Peterson of The Kingsmen ('Louie Louie'). Special Guest on Sax and Guitar will be the Honorable Brad Owen, Lieutenant Governor of the State of Washington. Topping off these legends of the Pacific Northwest will be the incomparable and legendary DJ, Pat O'Day, as Master of Ceremonies.
