All-American Cruise-In and Halloween Shock n’ Roll Record Hop

4pm – 11pm
Saturday 28th October

Come and join Ace Cafe London celebrating the 74th anniversary of the Oldsmobile Rocket 88.  The car launched in 1949 was soon the car to beat.

Together with the success of Ike Turner’s 1951 recording (by Sam Phillips) in Memphis of his song Rocket 88, this is considered by many to not only be the first muscle car, but also the first rock and roll record!

It changed everything….

The hurricane of sounds that swept across the Atlantic in the 1950’s caused a flowering of enthusiasm for rhythmic music both in its American form as well as its British offshoot. The Ace Cafe was there – bikes, cars, and rock ’n roll.

This month’s regular All-American Cruise-In features a free to attend Halloween “Shock n’ Roll” Record Hop, from 7pm – 11pm on Saturday 28th October with DJ Vince.

Halloween prizes will be up for grabs at the Ace awarded for children and adults wearing the best costumes, and for the best “dressed” cars!

Listen, revel and be immersed in a mix of the best rock and roll and rockabilly, blended with the London sub-culture sounds, broadcasting 24/7 on online radio and social media:
