Rock & Roll News:

A review of the Flipside Dance

At the end of 2013 one of Melbourne's favorite dances "Little Maria's" at the Whitehorse Club closed after more than 13 years of fortnightly dances. Little Maria decided that she no longer had the energy to start over at a new venue. Several people were approached to start up a new dance but as it’s a lot of work and a big financial risk, no one on the dance scene wanted the job. Finally a... [Read More]

Melbourne's Own Rockabilly Gals at Fast Eddies

Very exciting times of late in Melbourne's 1950's rock 'n' roll and rockabilly scene with the advent of a number of bands with lead female vocals. Many of us who have frequented our vibrant 1950's live music scene in Melbourne would be familiar with bands such as Honey B & the Stingers and the Flyin' Saucers which have been around for a few years.

Of late, Robyn & the... [Read More]

Junior rock n rollers

Where are all the junior rock and rollers? Have a look at this video from 1993 VRRDA dance competition where there were 3 heats, so I assume at least 15 couples competing. This year I think there were only 2 or 3 and from interstate? Where are they all?

As a community we need to do something about promoting rock and roll dancing to the younger generation or... [Read More]

Greazefest Festival in Brisbane

My first visit to Greazefest Festival in Brisbane after hearing so much about it from all my Melbourne rockabilly friends who have attended it in past years. Greazefest is run by Lori Lee and her small band of helpers, and I believe it has been staged in Brisbane for at least the last 15 years or so. It has grown over the years obviously and has now been staged at a large venue at Rocklea... [Read More]

A Band Called Twang at Easts Leagues Club (Brisbane)

It's fun checking out the 1950's style R&R and rockabilly music and dance scene in Brisbane. Haven't been to many places yet but slowly and surely I shall find out more. There is quite a vibrant live music scene in Brisbane ranging from hotel & pub venues such as the Morrison hotel, retro style music hall called Leftys, dance school venues and of course bowls clubs and Rugby league clubs....
