Billy Gibbons rejoining forces with his original musical sidekicks, known as the Moving Sidewalks, might have been the icing on the cake for Saturday night's Deacons of Deadwood Charity Gala. But for our money, the roar of 100 motorcycles rolling down Kirby and through River Oaks to the Bayou Music Center provided the true rhapsody for the senses.

The deacons and their dolls, outfitted in everything from biker grunge to sleeveless white dinner jackets, began arriving at Hendrick's Pub on Kirby well before show time downtown. Greasing their wheels at the bar and puffing like chimneys on the patio, this wicked crowd put aside its 9-to-5 buttoned-down persona in favor of Born to Ride and Outlaw Bikers vibes.

Leaders of the pack, most in those signature white dinner jackets emblazoned with club emblems, included president Steve Lamb, vice president Geoff Seaman, sergeant at arms Ken Carr and Kirk Lane, board member and president of Big Dog Logistics president and gala VIP sponsor.

The 12th annual Deacons of Deadwood gala drew a crowd of 800, most of them channeling Easy Rider characters, to the Bayou Music Center for dinner by Demeris, auction and dancing that began with the sounds of the Fab 5 and broke into dance floor bedlam when Moving Sidewalks hit the stage.

Gibbons, Don Summers, Dan Mitchell and Tom Moore revived the psychedelic rock sounds that they originated four decades ago.

Rollicking in their biker groove were Sky and Mike Tessari, Bob Rota, Kimberly Baldwin, Parker Detweiler, Leslie Nall, Nicole Paxson and Julie Polatchek, Lesa Taylor and David Stevens, Julie Hoot-Asta, Kim Luiz, Peter Sommer, Warren Schroeder and Courtney and Michael Wyckoff.
