2024 Cooly Rocks On Festival

The 2024 Cooly Rocks On Festival puts on another fantastic show for the thousands who attended the festival in Coolangatta this year. The weather was glorious throughout the festival with sunny days and gentle cool breezes to the shore and Marine Parade where the main events took place.

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. Venues and promoters once again were hiring bands and staging dances on a weekly basis without any restrictions after what we went through with Covid. Many of us also attended music festivals, classic car shows,... [Read More]

Graeme Thomas Tribute Gig

Graeme Thomas who passed away late in 2022, was a giant & legend in Melbourne's music recording industry.
