Wednesday Rock n Roll Nights at Freccia Azzurra Club

The Freccia Azzurra Club located on Springvale Road in Braeside is a rock n roll institution in its own right. I was told the venue was started by Lyndon and his Shadoogie band about 18 years ago after the closure of Pitrone's which was then the go to place in Melbourne for 1950's style bands and dancing. And today, it's still very popular with rockers and rockin' every Wednesday night with a... [Read More]

This year's competition again show cased 1950's rock n roll dancing in all its glory. Here's the video. I hope you enjoy watching it.....

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.
