Following the resounding success of last year’s event, once again the streets of Sabinillas will be filled with Lambrettas and Vespas of all vintages as the town hosts the 2015 II Sabinillas Scooter Day on April 18.
Organised by a group of local scooter enthusiasts and ageing Mods, the event began last year as an opportunity for them to share their enthusiasm, not just for their scooters, but also the music and fashion and philosophy of life that is wrapped up in the scooter culture. Bringing a touch of the carefree, swinging sixties in these austere times.
This year will follow the same pattern as last year with a meet up in the morning, with all scooteristas invited to come along, after which there will be a rideout around Manilva giving the riders a chance to show off their precious machines.
After lunch at Las Brasas, suitably fortified, the day continues with a ride down to Puerto de la Duquesa for a bit more showing off, followed by a trip to promenade in Sabinillas for a bit more preening!
This will be followed by three of Spain’s top DJs who will be playing their original vinyl on the Paseo between Frankies and Las Palmeras, playing all the hits of the era from northern soul, R&B, ska, reggae, and much more.
At 9.30 pm the action shifts to the Mayfair Music Club, with two live bands taking to the stage, The Bar-Kings from Seville, will treat the audience to their soul sounds, followed by Los Kriptolites from Jaen, with a dose of ska and early reggae. All this followed by another 4 DJs playing all the hits of the era on original vinyl.
This is an unmissable event, and what’s more it is free. If you haven’t got a scooter that doesn’t matter, just come along and enjoy the music. Remember that day, Saturday 18 April.
