It was early Saturday morning as the trucks came to unload the vintage buses and the newer ones came in under their own power. Everyone was busy setting up banners, displays and tents. Greyhound had their tent selling limited addition articles and the area where you could win prizes for the kids. I set up my equipment next to the traveling museum and boy what a bus that was. The history of Greyhound done to the "9's". Very impressive stories, pictures and uniforms of bus drivers through the years.
The buses themselves were impressive. They had the first vehicle Greyhound ever used the "Hupmobile" and then the 1914 bus, then the famous Scenicrusier and the newest one of today. That bus is too much! It has WiFi and AC outlets, comfortable black seats and you feel like your riding in your own limousine. This bus you make reservations. You truly are riding in style.
With a steady flow of people coming through all day. It was those who wanted a stroll down memory lane to those who brought their kids to look at the old and new buses.
Disc jockey services was hired to provide music for the 8 hour event playing the sounds of Benny Goodman, the Andrew Sisters and the big band area of the 1940's all the way up to the latest in 2014 from Sam Smith, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams to name a few.
As we got closer to the end of the event and the crew came in to tear everything down and the trucks came back to pick up the vintage bus it was a good day for everyone involved even through we were all tired. I went to a friend's for a cookout , the others ready to go to their next stop in Raleigh, North Carolina. Thank you Greyhound for hiring Disc Jockey Services.
