There will even be live performances over the course of the show, with a dedicated bandstand which will host several bands.

“Be entertained by a host of professional musicians at the show’s Bandstand” said a spokesman.

“Boogie to 1950s-style rock ‘n’ roll from Razor Holler, see trio of starlets The Femmes bring the glory of the 1940s to life and listen to western swing from Rip-Roaring Success.”
