Derwood Music & Machine, a one-of-a-kind event inspired by the legacy of Luther Derwood Moore, is excited to announce its upcoming gathering on Saturday, September 23rd, 2023 at The Shack at Panther Island Pavilion in downtown Fort Worth, TX.
The event was founded by Luther Cory Moore and inspired by his father who was always leading the charge, exploring every risk while staying on the right side of reason. Derwood Music & Machine is a celebration of life, quality, and passion reflected through the mediums of music and machines.
Attendees will immerse themselves in the culture of self-expression and craftsmanship transpiring from a curated exhibition of restored rarities and hand-built customs. These two and four-wheeled attractions range from vintage motorcycles, café racers, and choppers to classic cars, trucks, and hot rods.
With an emphasis on craftsmanship, the event will feature a local artisan market highlighting an eclectic mix of artists, photographers, and makers and their unique, handcrafted wares.
Bringing together both art and machines, this year’s event will feature a special invitational exhibition of custom cars and vintage motorcycles, including a “Drive & Ride In” Car and Motorcycle exhibition and an exclusive showcase from Haas Moto Museum featured builder, Craig Rodsmith.
Doors open from 10AM-10PM, with a lineup that includes live music, food trucks, and cocktail and beer bars. Guests will also have the chance to take part in demos, enjoy a Vinyl DJ set from 10AM-5PM, and vote for their favorite vehicles in various award categories, the results of which will be announced from 5:30PM-6:30PM.
“The love for life, quality, and passion is what drives Derwood Music & Machine,” said Luther Cory Moore. “The goal of this gathering is promoting a community dedicated to craftsmanship and self-expression.”
