Melbourne Open & $1,000 Shoot Out R&R Dance Competition

Jonathan & Zoe's Alleycatz hosted their annual Melbourne Open & $1,000 Shoot Out R&R dance competition last weekend. Unfortunately, I couldn't be there to witness it this year but have done so in previous years. From all reports, the R&R dance event was a great success featuring very high level, competition style rock n roll dancing.

Once again, the featured "Shoot... [Read More]

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]

Good Friday Royal Children's Hospital Appeal Dance

As in previous years, rockers from all over Melbourne came together to take part in the Good Friday RCH Appeal. This is a traditional event that has been happening for many years and it's a way for our Rock n Roll community to show we care. It's a great initiative worthy of everyone's support from the organisers to bands, dancers, merchandise stores, hot rods community etc.

Sapphire Coast Rock n Rodders Festival 2019

What a fabulous event again in Merimbula for the 10th Sapphire Coast Rock n Rodders Festival. It was hosted by Club Sapphire early in March but, as in the last 10 years, it was principally organised by Lyndon & Kerry with assistance from the local Merimbula R&R club. The weather in this seaside holiday town located in NSW South Coast as usual was fantastic with sunny sky during the whole... [Read More]

Geelong Jukebox Rockers staged its annual Summer R&R festival just last weekend and it was a great success indeed. The rockers I spoke to all had a great time. This R&R festival is one of the "must attend" festivals in Melbourne/Victoria for those who truly love our 1950's style music, dancing and classic cars.

The festival was staged over 3 days starting with the Friday... [Read More]
