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

I have found it a great delight visiting smaller towns and cities and attending their dance festivals over the last few years.

As many of you would know, dancers from Sydney Swing Katz have just about won all the major dance... [Read More]

But up until Sunday, it was glorious sunshine commencing on Wednesday when Cooly Rocks On program officially started. Yes, there were patches of drizzle on Saturday but all programs and outdoor...

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. The charity dance is a small but nonetheless a very practical avenue for rockers to show their financial & moral support for those in need and who are in less fortunate circumstances. This year there are at least a couple... [Read More]

Redlands Rockabilly Revival 2017

What a great event, and a huge crowd not just rockers turning out in force but also receiving big support from the general public.
