Loved when Jack Costanzo was there to talk and perform at TO11. Wish we could have similar Hulabilly pioneers at TO13. I'm thinking someone like Steel Guitar Hall of Famer Herb Remington who not only was a member of Bob Wills' band but had his own Hawaiian band. Any other suggestions for special guests, even if they don't perform?

I've dragged my mother to T.O. the past three years. Sorry for all the ankles I've clipped with her wheelchair! I really hope she's well enough to attend next year. She's played country steel guitar since the 1950's. And if you play steel, you gotta play some Hawaiian. One of her best groups was Wild Oats (http://www.ibiblio.org/hillwilliam/BGdiscography/?v=fullrecord&albumid=6645) but she also led a pretty wild all-girl group - The Farmer's Daughters - in the 1970's. The crowds, heat and hassle were getting to her a little this year, until she heard the theme for next year. Now she's looking forward to it! See you then!!



Can she still play? I remember seeing you guys there, by the way, and thought it was awesome that being older, and in a wheelchair, wouldn't stop someone from rocking! You tell your mama to keep on keepin on, it sounds like she's a real cool cat!

Three or four decades of playing professionally burned her out. Her steel is set up ready to go, but she finds excuses to not play. She started on upright bass before guitar then steel guitar beginning in the 1950's. As for partying, she WAS that girl in the Shag paintings. In the 1960's our Siamese cats were named Tiki and Taboo, a fact I forgot until recently! We had the black leopard statue, curtains of beads, jeannie bottles, atomic sunburst clock, giant fork and spoon, tiki mugs, you name it.

Later she had an all girl band, The Farmer's Daughters, https://www.facebook.com/bill.turner2?ref=tn_tnmn#!/photo.php?fbid=2259936813351&set=a.2222014025305.2102541.1096332124&type=3&theater. Her bands played Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, etc. One group put out an album http://www.amazon.com/Country-Bluegrass-Wild-Oats/dp/B003BXJTL4 also available on iTunes. She didn't make a big name for herself because she refused to tour.

She's looking forward to attending this year if her health allows. She could certainly tell a lot of stories about the steel people, country and rockabilly people that will be the focus this year! Please say "Hello" if you see her!
