Townsville Rock 'n Roll & Swing Dance Festival

What a great night of rock & roll music and dancing last night at the Hungarian Community Club in Wantirna when Flipside hosted Adelaide's "Teddy Boy" R&R band, the Lincolns. It was a full house with the gig booked out a fortnight ago. There were quite a few disappointed fans who missed out on a ticket to attend the dance.
