Nieka Style: Music world flush with style

The weekend’s Clovis Music Festival had at least one show with some fierce fashionable performers. This was at the “Kids Rock” Rock & Roll Assembly at Mesa Elementary on Friday.

As I stood along the sidelines I wasn’t sure what to expect. This was my first time seeing these performers. But I have to say hat’s off to them because not only were they entertaining, but they sure did suit the likeness of their imitated artist’s actions and fashions.

Although some of the students may not have known about Buddy Holly or Willie Nelson, the musicians had the teachers and students moving and shaking.

Johnny Rogers as Buddy Holly wore a green 1950’s suit with his thick black frames to top off the trademark look.

His pants must have had some great stretch material in them because he jumped on and off tables and slid across the floor with his guitar in hand like a true rock star.

The shoes he wore were a gray suede, no laces, and very chichi. Not sure if his loafers were from 1950’s fashion but they were all right with me. He wore them with black socks to complement his black button-up shirt underneath his suit.

The only hit and miss was his hair. He had it grown out on top but he didn’t have the Buddy Holly curl.

Michael Moore personified Willie Nelson with his long hair braided in twos and red bandana that crowned his head.

His black faded jeans and black tank top was a laid back and fitting homage to the Texas songwriter. Moore is a Texan himself so he didn’t forget to represent the state with his Texas Lone Star metal buttons on his black leather belt.

This show represented style from different eras and music genres that we all take lessons from today. The music world is full of style and with every song and dance there is a fashion show.
