White Sidewalls returning to Gear-Head Get Together


Aug. 16 may seem far away, but plans for the fourth annual Gear-Head Get Together are already being made.
Those plans include bringing back the White Sidewalls to perform their 1950s and 1960s doo-wop and rock n' roll show.
"The band loves the event and were asking us if they could come back right away because they had such a good time," event co-chair Scott Chantland said.
Originally, the plan was to mix up the headlining entertainment each year, but it quickly became apparent that bringing in another top-notch act wouldn't be a feasible option. So, the organizers worked to bring back the White Sidewalls and their fans.
"The nice thing is they have such a big following," Chantland said. "Thousands of gear-heads were here last year, but there were also people who came just to watch them, which was phenomenal. They really do have a following."
