Rock & Roll News:

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

Last weekend, it was Townsville's turn to host their third rock 'n roll and swing dance festival incorporating dance demos and classes led by the Sydney Swing Katz team. As many of you would know, dancers from Sydney Swing Katz have just about won all the major dance... [Read More]

The Lincolns at Flipside Rock & Roll

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.

The Lincolns are no strangers to Melbourne's live... [Read More]
