2018 R&R Person of the Year

This is only my personal opinion as someone who has been in our 1950's style music & dance scene for a number of years in Melbourne. There have been so many people & bands who have contributed greatly to our 1950's scene during 2018 and I am sure many of you have your own personal favourite(s) as well.

"Alternate" Rockabilly/RnR/Blues Venues

Our 1950's scene in Melbourne is really diverse and vibrant in so many ways. For many rockers, they enjoy the dancing and live music in one of the many venues in town like the dances held at Alleycatz, Flipside, Furlan Club, Triple Fs, Freccia, Rosebud RSL, Rosebud Italian Club and at clubs in Altona and Sunshine etc.

Others like to dance to music at the various RSL clubs or at... [Read More]

Flipside dance has given us all a fabulous 5 years.

A review of the Flipside Dance.

I first posted this in Sept 2015 and thought it fitting to post again with a few updates.

At the end of 2013 one of Melbourne's favourite dances "Little Maria's" at the Whitehorse Club came to an end after more than 13 years of fortnightly dances. All the regulars were upset that their favourite dance was to close and Little... [Read More]

Happy Days Diner in Croydon

Happy Days diner at 93 Main Street Croydon was officially opened yesterday. The Rockin' Tones was there to add a touch of the 1950's era playing a mix of popular classic & Jukebox tunes. Adding to that, some rock n roll dancers soaked in the atmosphere dancing on the shopfront pavement much to the delight of the general public who clearly loves the 1950's music and of course, the dancing too....

Triple F's Rock n Roll Dance with the Rockin' Tones

A sensational night of 1950's music and rock n roll dancing at Marelle's Triple F dance at the CAV Hall in Wantirna South. A first for me as I have never been to a dance at the CAV Hall nor to FFF's Saturday night dance. Also my first time dancing to the Rockin' Tones, a new Melbourne based 5 piece band, complete with a saxophone and dedicated to providing the best of the classic and Jukebox rock... [Read More]

Flipside's 100th Rock n Roll Dance Celebration

Flipside celebrated it's 100th dance milestone last Friday night at the Hungarian Community Centre in Wantirna South. The venue was jam-packed with rockers & regular patrons who were there to celebrate a very happy event. I could remember those early days of doom & gloom when Lt Maria finally closed its door after hosting her regular fortnightly dance for many years. Rockers were... [Read More]

Greazefest Brisbane 2018

Brisbane put on a glorious sunny weekend for Greazefest 2018 especially for those coming in from the much cooler southern & western states.

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]
