Rock & Roll News:

Camperdown Rock The Clock Festival

Despite inclement weather, the rock n roll music festival in Camperdown last weekend was a great success in my opinion. This festival was re-started by some very dedicated people after the demise of Camperdown Rockabilly Cruise Festival 2 years ago. The town and local businesses were keen to keep this 1950's style festival alive as it was such a drawcard for patrons not only from all over... [Read More]

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. I was told the venue was started by Lyndon and his Shadoogie band about 18 years ago after the closure of Pitrone's which was then the go to place in Melbourne for 1950's style bands and dancing. And today, it's still very popular with rockers and rockin' every Wednesday night with a... [Read More]

Camp Hollywood 2019

Camp Hollywood is one of the world's premier swing dancing competitions which is held annually in the USA. However, I have noticed that each year it does show case and try to re-create rock n roll dancing and dance scenes from 1950's movies. 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.

Here's some... [Read More]
