Bushkill, PA (Lehman Township) (March 2, 2023) — The newly renovated, 200+ acre entertainment complex POCONOS PARKTM  is “gearing up” for the upcoming LOST HIGHWAY – Motorcycle Show & Concert (to be held May 19 – 21 featuring Lynyrd Skynyrd) with its inaugural DEADBEAT CUSTOMS Motorcycle Swap Meet on Sunday, April 30 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The event will showcase the latest customs, parts, and accessories and allow motorcycle enthusiasts to “wheel and deal” to upgrade their ride, sell off old parts, or just take in the awe-inspiring workmanship and latest technology of today’s custom bikes. The swap meet is presented in partnership with DEADBEAT CUSTOMS and open to bikers and the general public. Admission to the event is $10 at the gate. Vendor spaces start at ONLY $30 for a 10’ x 20’ space (truck and trailer combo is considered two spots). For more information, click here

I’ve always enjoyed a good swap meet,” said Steve Bramanti, owner of Deadbeat Customs. “It’s a great opportunity to see what everybody has been collecting over the years, see old friends, and bring the motorcycle community together. I’ve wanted to organize one for a long time, so this is definitely a labor of love. We’re thrilled to partner with John Oakes and Poconos Park—I can’t think of a better place to do it.”

“The Deadbeat Customs Motorcycle Swap Meet on April 30 is a great precursor and way for folks to get their bikes in top condition for LOST HIGHWAY Motorcycle Show & Concert at POCONOS PARK,” said John M. Oakes, CEO/Founder of From the RootsTM. Oakes, a bike enthusiast and owner himself, founded LOST HIGHWAY Motorcycle Show & Concert, originally held in Southern California and named “Best Event” by Hot Bike Magazine. With the purchase and opening of POCONOS PARK by Oakes’ company, this premier event has now been expanded to the East Coast. 

LOST HIGHWAY Motorcycle Show and Concert on May 19-21 will feature world-class entertainment–Lynyrd Skynyrd (“Free Bird,” “Gimme Three Steps,” and “Sweet Home Alabama”) will take the stage on Friday, May 19, 2023 with direct support by fellow Southern rockers, The Marshall Tucker Band (“Can’t You See,” “Heard It In A Love Song,” “Fire on the Mountain”). Saturday’s music lineup will be announced in the near future. 

The event will also feature daily activities, including charity rides from Pocono Mountain Harley-Davidson, motorcycle giveaways, bike games, a cornhole tournament, line dancing in the Party Tent, a Deadbeat Custom Clash Ride-in Motorcycle Show that will feature five categories of bikes (including Chopper, FXR/Dyna, Sportster, Bagger and Softail) and Speed-Kings Cycle Showcase that will exhibit the best bikes from custom builders from across the nation in conjunction with the Motorcycle Art Gallery curated by Strati Hovartos at the intimate Lake House at POCONOS PARKTM.   

Early Bird general admission tickets start at only $19.99 (plus fees) and are still available through next week at LostHighwayShow.com

I can’t wait to welcome Steve Bramanti, his Deadbeat Customs team, all the other vendors and all the motorcycle enthusiasts from around the country that share my love of bikes, and swap meets,stated Oakes. “Regardless of where folks are coming from, every route to Poconos Park includes some of the best motorcycle-riding terrain in the country, as well as top-notch accommodations and dining opportunities. It’s time to let the good times roll!”


In just 12 years, DEADBEAT CUSTOMS has gone from a one-man operation out of a buddy’s basement to being one of the premier motorcycle parts and accessories retailers on the web. DC has a simple, grassroots ethos: Provide quality and affordable parts for motorcycle riders who customize their bikes themselves.

In early 2022, John M. Oakes’ From the Roots management company acquired 200+ acres of land, including the nearly 40-million-dollar development formerly known as Mt. Laurel Performing Arts Center and the Tom Ridge Pavilion. Just a short ride or drive from New York City, Philadelphia, Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Newark, Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton, From the Roots recognized the venue’s immediate potential, took action, renovated, upgraded, and reopened as POCONOS PARK

POCONOS PARK, located only 18 miles north of Stroudsburg in the Bushkill Falls region near Delaware Water Gap National Park, operates as a boutique festival site and plays host to world-class tours and productions, as well as special events. The complex includes two sizable venues: the Amphitheater at Poconos Park, a 10,000+-capacity, open-air, amphitheater with thousands of seats near the stage and a beautiful grass lawn for thousands more to enjoy entertainment in the great outdoors (the amphitheater can also be converted to a 3,000 capacity, fully-enclosed venue for year-round performances); and the Lake House at Poconos Park, a 14,000 square-foot banquet hall is located on a scenic 90 acre lake (the theater can seat up to 400 people for private events such as banquets, corporate retreats, weddings, etc., and serve as a facility for first-class VIP experiences for concerts, festivals and other large events.)
