RECAP: King Baby South’s “Rockin’ Pin Up Night”

It was an evening of girls, rockabilly music, cars, motorcycles and beer.  It was King Baby South’s first “Rockin’ Pin Up Night” and what a night it was.  Hosted by Shannon Million, Nashville’s rockin’ pin up,  and Sort Out This Cellars, the event was a huge success.  Girls strutted their stuff in the pin up contest while some of Nashville’s best rockabilly bands kept the place grooving.  The bands were Jane Rose & The Deadend Boys, Chris Casello Trio and Hellfire Revival.  If you have never heard of these groups, check them out.  They put on one heck of a show!  The crowd was great and we made a lot of new friends!  We can’t wait to do it again!  Check out some of the pictures below and more on our Facebook page!

After a long day of setting up the team went out for a celebratory dinner at The Palms in Caesars Palace.  Izzy, The Palms manager and long time King Baby fan, surprised everyone with something he’d been working on for a while.  A super cool caricature of Mitchell decked out in his King Baby jewelry and featuring his classic King Baby Chosen Skull Ring.

Finshing up in Las Vegas the boys decided it was time to head home and bring this ride to an end.

After navigating through the heaviest traffic of the ride, Mitchell and Ed arrived at King Baby Santa Monica early afternoon on the 8th day and they were all smiles.

By the looks of it he’s really taking advantage of his ride grabbing the bull…i mean…the buffalo by the horns.

King Baby of the Road: Day 2

Yesterday, designer and owner, Mitchell Binder hit the road with a hunger for adventure and a thirst for inspiration.  He and travel companion, Ed, headed west towards their first destination, Memphis, TN.  After riding through some of Tennessee’s finest rain showers, Mitchell and Ed made it to Jackson “soaking wet,”  with no other choice but to dry off, and take in some of the local flavor.

The weather subsided, and they continued on to Memphis for the night.

Up early today, and with good weather, Mitchell and Ed started heading through Arkansas.
