Hot Rod Night "Spring Riot" 16/04/2013

The cafe's annual Hot Rod Spring Riot, Wednesday 1st May, this years features the launch of a new CD from Vee-Tone Records and a transatlantic alliance with the USA's pre-eminent auto parts supplier Rock Auto "All the parts your car will ever need", both being collaborations celebrating the 75th anniversary of cafe originally opening in 1938.
The special anniversary CD album, "Ace Cafe The Rock n' Roll Years 1956 - 1962" embodies the style and culture of Ace Cafe London and showcases the spirit that has endured through the ups and downs of this iconic British institution. Featuring 28 British and American rock n' roll recordings released in the UK between 1956 & 1962 (on Single, EP and LP).  The tracks are rebellious, wild and frantic much like the cultural shift in Britain that the Ace helped drive throughout the '50s and '60s. This is the soundtrack of the Ton Up era and subsequent Rocker culture!

Now available at the cafe and on-line
Copies of the album, together with a myriad of other raffle prizes, are up for grabs on the night which includes with live rock n' roll from the hot rockin' outfit "Last Train From Memphis" and wax spinning by DJs Little Carl and Jimmy Guntrip. All kicking off the cafe's summer Hot Rod Night rock n' roll specials!
In addition to the Vee-Tone Ace 75th anniversary CDs, raffle prizes include copies of the latest, Issue 6, Vintage Rock  Magazine and pairs of tickets to attend Santa Pod's Dragstalgia, Enfield Pageant of Motoring and the National Hot Rod, Custom & American Car Show.
