5 & Diner Rockabilly Bash

The Annual 5 & Diner Rockabilly Bash features hundreds of classic cars lined across grass fields and paved areas at the Arizona State Fairgrounds in Phoenix, AZ. Among the classic cars, girls are dressed as pin ups and men have slicked-back hair and white t-shirts. Completing this very ’50s experience is  a stage with rockabilly bands playing live music.

According to Rachel Krupa of the sponsor, 5 & Diner restaurants, she and her husband decided to do a “bash” after hosting a series of successful sock hops and car shows at two of their Phoenix locations. The events included rockabilly bands that were, as Krupa put it,“true artists,” meaning they weren’t cover bands but played their own original music. “We just thought it would be a great idea to have a show based off our sock hops but on a much bigger scale,” she said.

  • Car and Bike Show
