Wednesday Rock n Roll Nights at Freccia Azzurra Club

The Freccia Azzurra Club located on Springvale Road in Braeside is a rock n roll institution in its own right.

And today, it's still very popular with rockers and rockin' every Wednesday night with a... [Read More]

This year's competition again show cased 1950's rock n roll dancing in all its glory. Here's the video. I hope you enjoy watching it.....

What was happening in March 1996?

I've just been reading a Rock & Roll News from 1996. It's interesting to see the prices of some of the big dances were around the $12 - $15 mark compared with the $15 - $18 price range of today. That's not a bad inflation rate over the past 23 years! I'm sure the cost of venue hire, bands, insurance etc have all gone up a lot more than they were in 1996.
