We are holding an Halloween Costume Contest at approximately 8 pm, during the band's set break. The best dressed will be judged by our panel of celebrity judges consisting of: Tim Tyler - the contest MC, Sherm, Betsy Bruce, Joseph Blair, Alan Michaels, David Fitzsimmons, Joan Lee, Shmonty and Carolina. Be prepared to strut your stuff across the stage. Registration runs through October 10 (click here to complete the online form)or when 30 contestants have applied - whichever comes first.
