This was the first of this event at BRIGHT.
The previous 2 events were with a different organizer.
Its a big thing to take on.
The layout for the weekend's activity had a huge area near the town hall sectioned off for bands with everything else outside this area. This kept people away from the action while they checked the market stalls, ate, drank etc. This... [Read More]

Hi all you rockers out there, havenít been here for a while. I just had to do review of two awesome gigs I attended Frid & Sat 22/23, the dancing was a little subdued for me, as my chick is laid up, bit like and old ratrod, engine is ok and a good goer, itís just the breather is a bit blocked up with dust and crap, so she's not running very well, Pneumonia eh....

Another good rockin' night at Flipside's rock 'n' roll dance at Wantirna's Hungarian Club. This time with Johnny Stingray & the Wanderers, a band that I have heard so much about from other rockers but didn't have the opportunity to see them perform until last night. Melbourne is well blessed with so many good 1950's style rock & roll bands and over the years I have enjoyed listening and... [Read More]

Recently, I came across interesting news & videos that may perhaps encourage more trend setting in our dance scene. A "crossover" dance event called "Dig Tha Feet" has been running in Canada for a few years now which seeks to jointly promote swing music and lindy hop with rock & roll music and rockabilly jive & boogie woogie dancing. It is in some ways not dissimilar to the early days... [Read More]

There's always something special about "opening nights" and this is no different with Flipside's inaugural rock 'n' roll dance at the Hungarian Club in Wantirna. One feels the excitement to be associated with such an event which was eagerly anticipated by many in recent weeks. Equally, the feeling of being part of history in the birth of a new rock & roll dance venue which in time may well... [Read More]

Hard to believe but it has been over thirteen years since Lt Maria first hosted her rock 'n' roll dance at the Whitehorse Club in Burwood. I can still vividly remember my very nervous and first time venturing into the Whitehorse Club on a Friday night after having completed a few rock & roll dance lessons. That was back in 2002 year. As a newbie to the 1950's style rock & roll dancing and... [Read More]

"The Cruisers" from Mount Gambier played 50s and 60s Rock and Roll as they always do so well. A truly great representation of the music of the era, played in the 'gutsy' way it was way back then, if my memory serves me right. And the dancers loved it, with the room jumping all night. I'm always impressed with the colours at our Rock & Roll dances. The ladies - and some of the men - always... [Read More]

Just back from the inaugural Mulwala/Yarrawonga positioning for Northern Suburbs Rod Run which for the previous 20 plus years, has been held in Bright.
From conversations I had with people, the town of Bright lost the event because the prices for accommodation, food, dining etc had increased so much it became just way too expensive to stage the event there.
So, the event... [Read More]
