If you have lived in Seattle for more than a year you understand the feeling that comes over you in the months of December through February. The dark days, endless rain and early nightfall. This year the Lemay ACM held an evening of blues music, alcohol, hors d’oeuvre and of course cars. The event was titled “Drive the Blues Away”.
Of course, it was dark and rained endlessly during the event. The weather outside, didn’t slow the event down because it took place inside the massive main hall of the museum. Just a few hundred car enthusiasts enjoying craft beer and liquor while wondering the huge collection. The whole time the sound of blues could be heard coming from the live bands.
As band after band played, we wondered the ramps admiring the classic cars and listening to music. Occasionally, we grabbed a bite, refreshed our drink and watched a song or two being played by the bands.
This classic Cadillac greated the visitors in the main lobby with its Arizona themed paint job. This car was big enough to serve a blues band as they toured the bar circuit.
The Gibson guitar company was also there with a collection of instruments to browse and play if you felt so inclined. The star of the collection was a special guitar (50 unit production run) they built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Corvette.
The Lemay ACM is a great place that is always looking to do different and unique events. It also does a great job of keeping the displays fresh and new.
