The Bostonia Ballroom Revival with Deke Dickerson

STELLAR SHOWS presents a Wicked Harem / Garrett Wear production: "Revival of the Bostonia Ballroom."

Fans of Western swing, vintage venues and country dancing are going to LOVE this one!

We are re-creating the original Bostonia Ballroom — a hot-spot for western swing music in El Cajon a half-century ago — where some of the greatest names in country & western music came to play.

This show is at the original location in El Cajon: 1340 Broadway at Bostonia streets.

In the 1940s thru the 50s, the Bostonia was known as the "Grand Ole Opry of the Southwest."

On regular rotation were touring acts such as Bob Wills, Patsy Cline and Ray Price. Celebrities included Hank Williams, Merle Travis and Willie Nelson. Lefty Frizzell, Spade Cooley and Carl Perkins were among many top artists to play the storied venue during the Golden Years of California Country. Hundreds of bands performed there nearly every day for decades, with as many as 1,500 patrons.

With that history in mind, we are re-creating the vintage Bostonia vibe - and adding an outdoor festival as well.

With three hot bands performing all evening, and a sizable dance floor, the Bostonia Ballroom will be swinging once again.

Take a look at this salutary musical lineup:

Deke Dickerson's All-Star Western Swing Band: The legendary Scotty Broyles on mandolin; Dave Stuckey of the Lucky Stars on drums; Brent Harding from Social Distortion on bass, famed picker Tommy Harkenrider on rhythm guitar; and pedal steel sensation Russell Blake - playing Speedy West's original Bigsby instrument.

Multi-instrumentalists Mitch Polzak & The Royal Deuces bring their original rockabilly, bluegrass and country swing from the Bay area.

Lil' Sue & The Cow Tippers round out the bill with their swinging honky tonk dance hall music.
