Rockin’ Route 66 was created to celebrate the history of historical Route 66 and the rich vibrant days of “good time rock n roll”. Following WWII, America went through some amazing changes and life was celebrated a little different than it is today. From the developing sounds of swing to rock n roll, to the power and muscle of the American car, to the styles and tradition of a country so rich and vibrant with life, Route 66 was the lifeline between two sides of our country. From Illinois to California, Route 66 has created a time capsule of stories, monuments, and music that has never been forgotten. Though times have changed, and an interstate built, the nostalgic history is full of life on Route 66 in Tucumcari, New Mexico.
