    Your right, Vince Gill and his band would be a good choice.

    Some of us old airheads see it diffferently. We like it simple and we like the real thing. We like instruments that don't run on electricity and have strings (except for the harmonica).

    Popa Chubby was great in Vermont on Friday Night. Really, most music is ok as long as it is played by musicians who have teeth and don't howl at the moon.

    That would be no. That was given to me personally by the Johnson City Chamber and I would still like to have it. No questions asked. If whoever has it would return it, please send it to the MOA office. It would be appreciated.

    Wow Asleep at the Wheel, we love that Texas Swing!
    The 2010 Finger lakes rally had a great dance band on Saturday. We danced till our toes hurt.

    BMW Motorcycles is bringing a German-style rally festivities to this year's MOA. You are all invited, whether you ride a BMW or not, to come to our tent for the Oktoberfest in July. Come for the food, drinks and entertainment. And speaking of entertainment we have a real treat for you. We have invited the most popular German event band "Blechblos'n" straight from the BMW Motorrad Days in Bavaria to join us at this very special celebration. The group "Blechblos'n" is the hottest rally band you have ever seen. They are so entertaining that we are bringing them from Germany just to perform for you at our tent at this year's MOA. Look for more info on our special MOA tent to be released soon.
    Just keeps getting better!

    See ya'all in Bloomsburg.

    Its a BMW Conquest Sales Event that will be part of our rally to a point. However its going to be held just outside the gated Fairgrounds in the huge parking area and its open to the public ! From there public attendees that wish to see the MOA rally events will have to register.....................unless things have changed. There for a while the Town of Bloomsburg didn't know the differance between BMW Motorrad and the MOA.

    If it's like the real Oktoberfest the beer garden might not be too crowded. I've been to the real thing and it's something I'll never forget, assuming what I remember really happened. I liked the dancing on the table part the best.

    That's entertainment!

    Maybe after "Blechblos'n" gets done with their gig at the Motorrad event we could invite them over to the main stage to do a battle of the bands with someone like Paul Thorn. Now THAT would be an interesting set to watch!
    Live this day.

    It's that whole Newport Folk Festival battle Part II............Pete Seegar vs Bob Dylan and his electric guitar. A rift that scared the folk music scene for decades...................

    Since their tent is going to be outside of the fairgrounds, I hope BMW NA has applied for a PA liquor license. A hofbrau experience without helles, lager or weissbier is a bit thin on content.

    So are you saying Pennsylvanians can't pull this off with such a rich German Heritage ?

    Motorrad is a bit behind but I have faith in them. Recently the Town and Fairgrounds thought they were part of us and Motorrad is being fashionably late. So they have to become compliant with not only a liquor license but entertainment fees, community tax applications and meet with the Mayor, Police and Fairgrounds Traffic Office.

    The Motorrad event is being held just outside the secure gates of our Rally on Friday. I don't know what the MOA plans are for entertainment on that day since I suspect BMW wants us to join them with their open to the public audience. Because this is a major Conquest Sales Event and Stunt Show, the later may have more than just "Teach."

    I don't worry so much about their band(s) and beer, I just want it to be a success for us and them. You never know someone in the public maybe inspired to purchase a BMW and join us. BTW if they wish, they can see our rally by paying the fee.
