Cooly Rocks On 2018

It seems like rockers from the southern states just couldn't get enough of Coolangatta's mainly sunny & dry weekend weather for Cooly Rocks On 2018. Not quite beautiful one day and perfect the next, but it was close enough. How could anyone complain when the Cooly rock n roll festival is mainly free entry to all music & dance events with the exception of a couple of gigs at the upstairs... [Read More]

VRRDA 2018 Rock n Roll Dance Championship

Another year of fantastic Rock n Roll dance competition for a sold out event at the Hungarian Community Centre in Wantirna South. This is the 25th year of competition hosted by the Victorian Rock & Roll Dance Association (VRRDA) with the first event held at the Collingwood Town Hall back in 1993. Dance competitors came from various dance clubs in Melbourne and regional Victoria, and also... [Read More]

Cars For Kids at the Keillor Hotel by the Guzzlers car club.

Another day to remember. Every box got ticked and they raised over $30,000.00
A lot of effort went in to presenting the day. Facebook posts will be full of accolades and appreciation for all concerned no doubt.

The bands rocked. Jump’n’Jive, Fender Benders, Atomic Hi-Tones, The Dizzy’s, Andy Phillips & the Cadillac Walk and last what was a special treat for everyone... [Read More]

The Retro Rockets & AHT at Alleycatz R&R Dance

Wow! It was so good to see the Retro Rockets playing again in Melbourne after a couple of years ago. The last time I saw the band play was at Cooly Rocks in Coolangatta but the heavens opened up with lightning and heavy downpour so much so the band had to stop as it was getting very dangerous playing in an open stage and handling electric equipment. Retro Rockets was the headline act at Alleycatz... [Read More]

Fast Eddies Poolroom & Bar

Sad news to hear yesterday from DJ Ashley & Leanne that this coming Sunday evening will be the last dance to be held at that fantastic venue. As everyone who has danced at Fast Eddies will acknowledge, the venue is one of the best, if not the best, live music & dance venue ever hosted by DJ Ashley. It has a big & non sticky dance floor, bar facilities and lots of parking available.... [Read More]

Si Cranstoun in Concert

What a fantastic night of music and dancing with Si Cranstoun in concert at the St Sava Church Hall in Greensborough. Last night was the last leg of his 2017 Australian tour having performed at various concerts in NSW and Queensland. It was a packed hall with close to 500 dancers and patrons attending his concert. I last saw Si Cranstoun when he came to Melbourne for the first time about 4 years... [Read More]

Greazefest Brisbane 2017

What a fantastic weekend of glorious sunshine, and even hotter bands, music, dancing, hot rods and Pin ups. All that and more at Greazefest which was staged in Brisbane for the 18th year running. I think, and many would agree with me, that this year's event was probably the best and biggest by far. With overseas acts supported by some of Australia's favourite rockabilly, blues and 1950's style... [Read More]

Townsville Rock 'n Roll & Swing Dance Festival

As many of you would know, dancers from Sydney Swing Katz have just about won all the major dance... [Read More]
