Green Bay 2005
Green Bay, Wisconsin and the Oneida Casino were hosts to fabulous Rockin' 50's Fest II. The line-up of performers numbered more than 100. Six days of rock and roll and rockabilly kept nearly 4000 enthusiastic fans on cloud nine. As usual the "Yesterday's Memories" crew had a great time and we met so many wonderful listeners from all over.
This is the main entrance to the Oneida Casino which hosted the "Rockin' 50's Fest 2005".
The "yesterday's Memories" gang arrive at the hotel at the beginning of the week.
Rockabilly artist Terry Noland put on a great show. It was a treat to meet Terry as we play his material quite often on YM.
Alan Clarke has been in the music business many years. He has become a good friend. Alan also publishes a great series of books and posters relating to the music of the 50's. They are available on this website under MUSIC MART.
Bill Haley's original Comets did an incredible show. Some of these guys were with the Saddlemen. That tells you how long they've been performing. Here they are signing autographs.
Ed and George are sitting with Freddie Bell of Freddie Bell and the Bellboys. Freddie is a real fun guy to be around.
Hi Recording artist Ace Cannon was another top shelf performer at the 50's Fest.
There were a lot of classic cars on the scene for the whole week. I can't imagine why. Yeh right!!
Buddy Holly impersonator Richie Lee and Kendall of the Tutti Fruitties rehearse on stage at the casino.
"Yesterday's Memories" marketing directors Steve and Bobbi Sands spend some time with the Bobbettes.


Ed spent some time talking with Clarence "Frogman" Henry after the show.

Ed poses with Ike Turner at one of the restaurants at the Casino. Ike lost his appetite after that for some strange reason.
Narvel Felts spent a lot of time talking with fans after his performance. He is such a class act.
Joe Bennett of Joe Bennett and the Sparkletones is trying to ignore Ed and George. Joe was joined by all of the original Sparkletones.
This nice family travelled all the way from Japan to attend the 50's Fest.
These Japanese children were sure great dancers. They would put almost anyone to shame.
Ed, George and all the YM gang join Dale Hawkins and Flo for breakfast.
This is the entrance to the Riverside Ballroom. This is where Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens performed the night before their fateful appearance at The Surf Ballroom in Clearlake, Iowa.
This is the interior of the Riverside Ballroom.
Here we see the Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper Memorial outside the Riverside.
We at YM all want to say that the 50's Fest at the Oneida Casino was a class operation and we would like to thank Phil Duran and all those involved for their hospitality.
