The event will be held at the Best Western Royal Plaza Hotel in Marlborough, Massachusetts. This is located 20 minutes west of Boston. Could Viva East be the new Viva Las Vegas for those tired of the same old April event? If the bands booked are a better draw, than the choice might lean to the East for rockabillies open to a new horizon.
Several bands have been booked so far:
We will update this page as additional bands are signed.
The car show for Viva East is listed as being massive and pre-65. As a 2 year past attendee to the New England Shake-Up, their car show was inadequate with more outdoor vendors hoping for sales than cars. Perhaps having an event in July with a solid car club like the Roadmen behind it will boost entries so attendees can enjoy a car show that is diverse and plentiful.
