    Get Paid To Go To Car Shows

    We’re looking for folks to pass out flyers at car shows in the South and some larger shows across the whole midwest. Heading to a show and want to make a few bucks? Just want to support the cause? We’ll pay you anyway. We appreciate our street teamin’ friends!

    Pay ranges from $20 to $200 depending on the gig.

    We’re promoting the 5th annual Hot Rod Boogie Car Show. This is a fun 2 day outdoor car show behind the Nashville Palace in Music Valley. The show itself is FREE to the public. It’s $25 to register a car, bike, or truck. All of that money will be donated to the Shriner’s Hospital for Children. They are an incredibly generous hospital funded by contributions and donations.

    We’ll have vendors and bands right there with you! No extra charge to watch the car show bands. You’d be crazy to miss out on this fun. New cars will show up each day.
    We’d like your help getting the word out. Please contact Tina West at boogiecarshow@gmail.com if we can mail you a box of flyers and posters to distribute at a car show near you.

    We are looking for shows within 200 miles of Nashville. If it’s a bigger show that is outside of that range we will still flyer it. www.hotrodboogie.com
    Thank you in advance!

    Here’s the extra cool part. The car show is actually part of a bigger festival called the Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender. We’re talking dozens of bands, a western fashion show, a pinup pageant, a huge vintage vendor market, record hops, a record convention and a pool party. That’s $135 for the weekend or $50 a day. If you’re onsite and decide to extend the party you’ll be able to grab a day pass. We also have discounted rooms at the Opryland Resort. All that information is at www.nashvilleboogie.com

    Muddy Roots Attendees Buy Waterloo Falls

    It’s been a long tradition of Muddy Roots Music Festival attendees to visit the local waterfalls and now 2 of them just bought it!
    Here’s the kicker, your promoter represented them as the buyer’s Realtor.
    We really are one big family!

    Waterloo Falls is located about a half mile from the gates of the Junebug Ranch that we host the festival on. On sunny days you can see truck loads of attendees venturing away for a cool dip. The property has always been privately owned and remains that way, but by one of our own “muddies.”

    san diego alice
    Alice Weaver and Nathan Davey made the drive out from San Diego, California in 2018 to attend the 9th annual Muddy Roots Fest. It seems only in our field could you go on a cross country adventure to a festival and come back owning a waterfall. How cool is that? There have been mentions of an official shuttle to the falls from the Junebug as well as potential RV spots. We’ll update you as we see them develop the land. One thing is for sure though, they want to keep it as close as possible to what it is now. Just add in some space for folks to camp. These are good people!

    Listing agent was Skender Newton Realty
    Buyer’s agent was Jason Galaz at EXIT Realty Elite www.findahomeintn.com

    Lost Footage of 2011 Muddy Roots & It's Historical Relevance

    2011 was our 2nd year hosting music festivals. It was more of hillbilly-rock-n-roll-punk-rock-blues-bender-in-a-field. There were just about 700 of us in the field that year. We evolve each time but you can really see how we were back in the days. There was even a pinup pageant hosted by Sabina Kelley and a car show. Some of our stages were just a tent over some mud with a bail of hay. DIY til we die.

    We stumbled across this unfinished documentary hosted by Rebel Music TV. That was the year that Wanda Jackson played despite a massive flood in the tent. Good times.

    What we love most about this footage is the legendary Don Maddox of the Maddox Brothers and Rose sharing a bit about his history and how his band influenced legends to come. He mentions how he thought his band was forgotten seeing as how it started in the 1930’s. Brother, not in our field. We recognize the roots and this band was the roots of both country and rockabilly. They were a high energy hillbilly boogie band that blew up from the 30’s to 50’s. The Maddox Brothers and Rose were before country music, pioneered the Bakersfield sound, and inspired Elvis to liven up his wardrobe.

    Check the footage here.

    It wasn’t too much longer that Don was back in Nashville at the opening of the Bakersfield Sound exhibit. We brought him back to play the Muddy Roots Music Festival once more as well as the Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender. Don is well in to his 90’s now so we let him rest. But boy o’ boy are we grateful for his time at our events.

    Here’s a photo of Little Jimmy Dickens and Don Maddox hanging out on vendor row at the Muddy Roots Music Festival. They were right outside my camper despite the 90 degree weather. Jimmy even played in his fully rhinestoned suit. Toughest generation this country has seen!
