Proud to Be An American
Rock and Roll is Alive and Well! What began thirty-three years ago as 'Harvey Hubcap and the Do Ron Ron' has evolved into The Fabulous Hubcaps, one of the nation's most sought after oldies show bands. Their career has been as diverse and colorful as the bowling shirts they wear. On any given month, their schedule may take them from Miami to Pittsburgh, Atlanta to Detroit, or Albany to Washington, DC. Whether a black-tie formal affair for the Northern Virginia Hospital, a 50's Sock Hop for the ASPCA or the Annual Blow-Out at the Nantucket Yacht Club, the Fabulous Hubcaps have been the choice of entertainment for decades. The darlings of the country club circuit, they are also recruited by American Legions, VFW's, fire companies and numerous civic organizations for their ability to sell out a venue, making fund raisers a guaranteed success. The band has performed on the South Lawn of The White House for the 1995 Press Corps Picnic, and sang The National Anthem in Orioles Park at Camden Yards. They have performed at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio for The Goodguys/PPG Nationals, and were mentioned in the 2003 Collector's Calendar Issue of Street Rodder Magazine. The group has performed at Inaugurations for Governors Wilkerson and Patton of Kentucky, as well as being invited to appear at The Kentucky Derby in 1993. Most recently, The Hubcaps performed at the Inaugural Ball for Governor Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Hubcaps fans include Maryland Senate President Mike Miller, Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski, the late Louis S. Goldstein, former Comptroller of Maryland, and Coach Joe Gibbs of The Washington Redskins. They have performed with Masters of Ceremonies and guest speakers that include Bob Dole, Colonel Oliver North, and David Hyde Pierce of 'Frasier'. Their national popularity has gained them the Key to the City of Frankenmuth, Michigan by Mayor Gary Rupprecht, in addition to a Proclamation by the City honoring The Hubcaps for 18 consecutive years of drawing record crowds to the annual Music Festival there. In Auburn, Michigan, promoter Butch Waibel, of Rock N Wheels (a three-day Car Show/Concert) has requested the group for the 13 the consecutive year. The Hubcaps have performed aboard the Carnival Cruise Ship 'Fantasy' and in center field at The Bay Sox Stadium. They are at home on stages like the state-of-the-art VanWezel Theatre in Sarasota, Florida, or on a flatbed truck at a county fair. On Sunday, July 17, 2005, The Hubcaps proudly were inducted into The Southern Legends Entertainment and Performing Arts Hall of Fame. This great honor was presented by Sun Record Recording Artist, Vernon Taylor. Since their first 45 record in 1982, The Hubcaps have released 15 recordings, from cassette tapes to their most recent compact disc, 'Summer Nights'. Performing together since 1974, this seven-piece band shows no signs of slowing down. The Hubcaps continue to captivate audiences with their high energy tributes to original artists like Little Richard, Elvis, James Brown, Tina Turner, The Flamingos, Buddy Holly, Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Janis Joplin, The Shirelles, The Beach Boys and Willie Nelson just to name a few. With an extensive repertoire of do-wop group harmony, classic rock and roll, Rock-A-Billy, Motown, and R & B music, The Fabulous Hubcaps are heralded as one of the best oldies show bands in the country. The Fabulous Hubcaps look forward to having you share a magical evening of entertainment with them as they continue to prove that 'Rock and Roll is Alive and Well'!
