The Best Homegrown Music Festival" - Westword Best of Denver 1996
"...the event is great! I'm having a great time!" - DJ Go from Tokyo, Japan
"You guys sure know how to throw a party!" - Ray Condo leader of Ray condo and his Ricochets
"The best weekend of my life!" - Ronny Weiser Founder and President of Rollin' Rock Records


For the third consecutive year, BIG K PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the DENVER ROCK N' RHYTHM-BILLY WEEKEND, two days of music, dancing, hot rods and much, much more!

The Holiday Inn, DIA (15500 East 40th Avenue, Denver - Phone 303-371-9494, fax 303-375-1808) is the venue for what promises to be a fantastic time for both devotees of authentic Rockabilly, Western Swing and Jump RnB, and someone just looking for some great music. This ain't no Grease-inspired sock hop, this is the real deal. Both our entertainers and attendees take the music and the lifestyle very seriously. This being said, anyone can have fun at the DENVER ROCK N' RHYTHM-BILLY WEEKEND. All that's required is an appreciation of a rockin' beat, a boppin' dance floor, and friendly folks from all over the globe. Last year's event attracted people from as far away as Germany, England, Japan - even the Sultanate of Oman! We're expecting an equally international gathering this summer.
