Eddie’s band is comprised of World Class talent and their accomplished musicianship will appeal to EVERYONE = offend no one!
Whether you ride a Horse, drive a Honda or a Monster Truck, Eddie Van Zant will start your engine and keep your motor running on that dance floor until last call Y’all!

About Racine Honda and their new GM Matthew Douvikas and his agenda –

Racine Honda, under its new leadership, seeks to aggressively develop and launch new programs, or bolster, partner and augment existing area attractions and/or events. The Racine Honda store, in its implementation of “10-4 GOOD BUDDY” seeks to create more than “just another car dealership customer appreciation event”. Racine Honda’s agenda and goals are simply intended to pave the way toward fostering and driving a thriving and vibrant Racine area community.
On August 17th, 2018, Mr. Matthew Douvikas was hired and announced to take over as Racine Honda’s General Manager by the HOMERUN AUTO GROUP. Matthew is hitting the ground running and has initiated and implemented numerous action steps. With specific intentions to have a grass roots presence, Matthew is instituting his very own pay it forward movement. Upon realizing his desires and thirst for breaking shells and sprinting ahead of his competitors, Mr. Douvikas decided to color outside of the lines of conformity by hiring a new sales guy named Daniel LaBelle. Daniel, quite unusual for any car salesman, comes to Racine Honda as someone uniquely seasoned with special talents and skills. A former executive, entrepreneur and creative producer out of Chicago, Daniel is someone who has a vast imagination. A loyal and dedicated person whom Matt pegged to be his direct “in house” RAMAC, Corporate & Community relations guy, Daniel is now in full on mode to fuel and feed Matt’s agenda. Daniel quickly realized Matt’s burning passion to plunge his store into being an example of the Racine business forefront. Their fundamental opening move by joining RAMAC in an effort to begin building relationships with all of their neighboring local business leaders has been integral and advantageous to all aspects of Racine Honda’s planning.

Out of the gate, Daniel conceptualized “10-4 GOOD BUDDY” as a wholesome and immediate means to breathe life into their community agenda, and in the same breath instill a team spirit to unify their very own Racine Honda personnel. The goal is to ultimately connect with their neighbors and customers, and to raise money and awareness for one of this area’s very own hometown charities, The UNITED WAY of RACINE.
