Gippy Rocks 2019

Gippy Rocks hosted its fifth year of Rock n Roll Festival in Sale last weekend and it was a very enjoyable weekend of R&R music, dancing and competition. The weather was fantastic all weekend. It was also my first time attending a R&R event in Sale. Gippy Rocks is a charity event with all profits going to charity and for a very good cause. Well done to Gippy Rocks....

Ballarat Beat 2019

Despite some pre-event negative publicity and comments on social media about the changes that were to take place for Ballarat Beat, I nonetheless went ahead to attend this rock n roll music and dance festival. I am so glad I went as I had a great time on the weekend listening and dancing to some of Melbourne's favourite bands which included Scotty Baker, Jukebox Racket, Louis King & the Liars...

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]

"Alternate" Rockabilly/RnR/Blues Venues

Our 1950's scene in Melbourne is really diverse and vibrant in so many ways.

Flipside dance has given us all a fabulous 5 years.

A review of the Flipside Dance.

I first posted this in Sept 2015 and thought it fitting to post again with a few updates.

At the end of 2013 one of Melbourne's favourite dances "Little Maria's" at the Whitehorse Club came to an end after more than 13 years of fortnightly dances. All the regulars were upset that their favourite dance was to close and Little... [Read More]

Triple F's Rock n Roll Dance with the Rockin' Tones

A sensational night of 1950's music and rock n roll dancing at Marelle's Triple F dance at the CAV Hall in Wantirna South.

Also my first time dancing to the Rockin' Tones, a new Melbourne based 5 piece band, complete with a saxophone and dedicated to providing the best of the classic and Jukebox rock... [Read More]

Flipside celebrated it's 100th dance milestone last Friday night at the Hungarian Community Centre in Wantirna South.
