GEAR 2018
York, PA
October 3 – 7
GEAR ENTERTAINMENT

The GEAR planning committee members recognize how much
you want good entertainment at our Rallies. Otho Tew with the
help of Mike Get some of those Frankie greats: “Can’t Take My
Eyes Off You,” “My Eyes Adored You,” “Walk Like A Man,” and
many more of those old greats that bring back memories of
proms, sock hops, and running out of gasoline on back roads.
LOL. Saturday evening, “Second Time Thru,” a local group
from York, will be doing a wrap-up of some of those favorite
rock and roll songs that may have been left out the two nights
before. Bring your dancing shoes and be ready to boogie.
