Townsville Rock 'n Roll & Swing Dance Festival

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]

Rockn' Suzie's Good Friday Charity Dance 2017

There are many things one can feel proud as a rock & roller in Melbourne, and the charity dance held on Good Friday every year is certainly one of those proud moments.
