Kathie Martin and the Hot Rods are re- tuming to the Oktoberfest by popular de- mand. Last year, flae group had the Friday night crowds dancing under the stars. This year, they'll perform two shows Friday night, one from 7 to 8 p.m., the other from 9 to 10 p.m. Kathie Martin and the Hot Rods combine musicianship with authentic cos- tuming, comedy and choreography to create an energetic and exciting ride through the nostalgic era of the '50s and '60s. The band has entertained at the Oldies 100s Birthday Celebration Concert in Washington, D.C., which featured many name acts including The Tokens, Dion and the Belmonts, and Frankie Ford. The Honeycombs band will perform from 7 to 10 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 3. This group, organized by Honey "Mr. Drums" Voshell in 1991, is known as one of the most versatile on the Eastern Shore. All band members sing and some double on different instruments. Adding tO the show are comedy and impersonations. Honey Voshell played with the Glen Miller and Tommy Dorsey bands, AI Marti- no, Lionel Hampton, Bill Haley and the Comets, Roy Clark, Loretta Lynn and many other legendary performers. His fellow band members include lead vocalist Alan Kessel, formerly of the band called Free- dom; keyboardist Phil Staley of Milford; bass player Jack Wright, the newest mem- ber of the group; and guitarist Dave Joiner. The horn section is composed of Gary Spengler on trumpet and Jim "Buckshot" Roberts on saxophone. The Honeycombs are known for getting their audiences on the dance floor. "If you want to hear big band, jazz, country, rock, Top 40, Latin, you name it - we can play it," Voshell said. Other Oktoberfest entertain- ment promises plenty of fun for families. Saturday, Oct. 3, is the festival's biggest day, with performances by the Milford Community Band, the Walt Groller Orches- tra, professional German dancers, the His- panic group "KATARI," and Mexican dancers. The ninth annual festival offers kids the chance to paint pumpkins, create sand art, play in the Jolly Jumper of ride ponies and the Jelly Bean train. The youngest can explore their own toyland, play children's games or just tug at the ear of READ-ALOUD Delaware's Fluffy the Reading Rabbit. Special this year is an expanded Oktober- fest raffle. Winners will walk away with $1,000, first prize; $500, second prize; a mystery getaway, third prize; and a boom box, fourth prize. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5.
