All good things must come to an end .....sometimes. The Gully's Church of Rock (Ferntree Gully Hotel) finally closes its door after 8 long years of rockin' and rollin' live music and dancing. Praise the Lord indeed for high octane rockabilly and addictive rockin' blues, roots and country.
The faithfuls came to church in droves to dance and drink before their rock gods (Itchy... [Read More]
