Rock & Roll News:

2015 Camperdown Rockabilly Cruise Festival

Another very enjoyable 1950's style music festival in Camperdown last weekend which is slowly but surely becoming one of the "must visit" events on the Australian live music events calendar. This year is my fifth trip to Camperdown and it just seems to be getting bigger and more popular each year. The trip to Camperdown now is also so much quicker and safer with the opening of new multi lanes... [Read More]

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]

Lucky Seven at Stars Club Loganholme

Another roving report on live music and dance scene in Brisbane.

Saturday night was a huge rockabilly night at Just Rock Brisbane. Just Rock is the premier rockabilly dance club aimed at promoting rockabilly dancing and music in Brisbane. It holds a social dancing function about once every couple of months. On Saturday night, they had the Flattrackers from NSW playing at their... [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 "Kustoms & Kulture" Festival Melbourne 2015

For the second year running, Greazefest Kustoms Kulture Festival Melbourne was held last weekend at Sandown Racecourse. Just like last year, it drew rockers, billies, dancers and generally people who love the 1950's scene encompassing music, culture and lifestye including lots of bands from overseas and local Australian ones, hotrods and Kustoms cars, Miss Pin Up & fashions, merchandise and...

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....

Cooly Rocks On 2015

My first visit last weekend to "Cooly Rocks On" rock & roll music festival since it was staged about 4 or 5 years after the previous "Wintersun" festival stopped being staged in Coolangatta.

Everything I have known or heard about Cooly Rocks On was on show last weekend. There was merchandise galore, the usual hotrods, Kustoms and specialty cars on display and cruising on the... [Read More]
