2024 Good Friday Appeal Rock 'n' Roll Dance

Once again this year, our Melbourne rock 'n' roll community turned up with pride and in numbers to take part in the annual Good Friday Appeal dances. Two events were held in Melbourne this year that I know of - RocknSuzie dance in Pakenham and Adrian's dance at Burwood Whitehorse Club.

2023 NYE's Dances

Many of us celebrated NYE's along with our rocker friends watching live bands and dancing rock 'n' roll. The year 2023 was a very good year for our 1950's style rock 'n' roll community.
