This is the best value in entertainment you will see this year, not to mention for a great cause!

This will be a show you don't want to miss! This is entertainment at its finest! Borderline was the hottest local rock band during the 80's playing as much as 5-6 nights a week across the Midwest, also writing several originals that could be heard on local radio stations in Central Illinois. Heartache Tonight ( has performed flawlessly for a number of years only to perfect one of the greatest bands of all time - The Eagles.

The Chevrolet Hall of Fame Museum "1st Annual Memorabilia & Classic Car Auction" is now History!

I'm very pleased to announce the long anticipated "1st Annual Memorabilia & Classic Car Auction" being presented by the Chevrolet Hall of Fame Museum in Decatur, IL. on Saturday October 29th @ 8:00 am (cst) is now completed. There was a preview party on Friday October 28th from 5:00-8:00 pm.

Just shy of 50 cars and lots of memorabilia, antique and special interest automobiles and motorcycles were auctioned off for the inaugural year. This will grow in 2012 !

The memorabilia included gas pumps, porceline and neon signs, antique bicycles and pedal cars and more! We had some of those hard or impossible to find collector car parts.

The auction started promptly after the National Anthem on Saturday morning with memorabila being first offered with "NO RESERVE" followed directly thereafter with automobiles.

Commissions only applied if seller accepted last bid or if sold through "Bids In Motion". All bidders must be registered to bid! Each car, truck or motorcycle was a seperate entry.

We feel we had a very unique opportunity with location and with there not being any other classic car auctions in the Central Illinois area. We had a very experianced top quality auctioneering staff and a fantastic facility for a great event!

If you have any questions, as always, feel free to call me. Watch this page for information about our 2012 Event !!

The Chevrolet Hall Of Fame Museum 2nd Annual Night Before "The Hunnert Car Pile-Up" Cruise-In was a great event !

Just wanted to "Thank" everyone including attendees, sponsors and donators to this year's event held October 7th! We had a great turn-out with over 200 cars and I think everyone had a real good time. The entertainment was also great (The Ultimate "CSNY" Experiance!!! A Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Tribute Band, from Chicago and Kidd Kadillac and the Continentals).

Special Thanks to Coles County Corvette Club for all the help in collecting entry fee's and Bob & Dixie Hedden for the great concessions, and LaGondola & Tony Cori for the food for the band and helpers!

We heard nothing but good comments about the food from workers and band and from the consessions from Dixie's Concessions. That was appreciated by all. Can't leave out Scott Bowers and Fast Impressions for their fantastic job on flyers for the event that are nothing but FIRST CLASS! Look at flyers for any other event and see how they compare? Hope all of you had a good time and again "Thanks" for all the help. See and talk to all of you soon!!! If I have forgotten anyone or don't have their email address, please let them know for me.

A Word about the Bands !!

"Marrakesh Express is a CSNY tribute, but they do not imitate as much as capture the spirit of. They are an organic, real band, with their own distinct personalities that shine through (often humorously) in their rapport with the audience. Their harmonies are gorgeous. They're great people -- fun and energetic. They are the most original tribute band I've ever seen."

~Mark Schmidt, Casino Regina

There are hundreds, if not thousands of tribute bands performing the music of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, U2, and other monsters of rock. But Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young? Next to none.

A band dedicated to tributing CSNY is unheard of due to the difficulty in replicating the 3- and 4-part vocal harmonies that made the group international superstars. Marrakesh Express excels at reproducing CSNY's complex songs and cascading, layered harmonies, and takes the audience back to the late 1960s with youthful musicians who bring an authentic hippie vibe and visual to the stage.

CSNY was arguably the biggest band in the world after the demise of the Beatles, and is one of the most enduring and influential musical groups of all time. The band, born in the turbulent years of the late 1960s, released hit after hit that spoke directly for their generation. Their songs remain in heavy rotation on classic rock radio stations to this day.

Marrakesh Express upholds the integrity of that music with their vivid and realistic performance of CSNY's most recognizable songs. Featuring four harmonizing vocalists backed by a top-flight band, they deliver a unique and energetic concert performing the classic CSNY hits, deep cuts, and fan favorites.

Marrakesh Express has played to literally tens of thousands of appreciative fans including the headlining slot at the Woodstock 40th Anniversary Tribute Concert in 2009. The music of CSNY has stood the test of time and fans of the classic rockers, as well as young people who are curious about "the 60s," are anxious to venture out to hear it represented live.

Kidd Kadillac and the Continentals !!

7 top professional musicians have joined together to create one of the most exciting musical groups in a long time… and they are coming to this area! From their amazing“ DO WOP ” harmonies in their renowned 50s / 60s Show to
the driving rock n roll beat of their 60s Dance Party you do not want to miss this outstanding band with unsurpassed entertainment for all ages.

The members of this exciting show group have performed to the acclaim of standing room only audiences all over the country and of course now The Chevrolet Hall of Fame Museum !
