    Rosebud Rock 'n' Rods Festival 2015

    Rosebud Rock 'n' Rods festival kicked off last night with Adelaide's "Teddy Boy" 1950's style rock & roll band, the Lincolns. It was a sell out crowd with a long waiting list to get in. For those lucky rockers with tickets, it was a great night of rock & roll music and dancing and the Lincolns certainly not disappointing their Victorian and Melbourne fans which seem to be growing by the day. I first saw the Lincolns played at Camperdown Rockabilly Festival several years ago and has felt then this band has something different with their "Teddy Boy" look, influence and style. The band's music is very danceable and is a mixture of self-penned tunes and other popular R&R dance songs.

    The night capped off with dance demos from two young Victorian rock & roll dance champions, Andrew Camp and Ashley Tavner. But the real surprise (and highlight) which took place towards the end of the night has to be the "proposal" when Kud got down on his knee to propose to Trace and she said "yes". This is a dream come true for the lovely couple and I am so glad to have a first time experience witnessing a marriage proposal during a rock & roll gig.

    Rosebud Rock n Rod Festival continues today with rods and Kustoms display, 1950's merchandise stalls and the Lincolns again playing in the main school hall along with 2 other bands including the Fender Benders. There's also a dance workshop with Andrew Camp and Ashley Tavner. Go along to support live rock & roll music, fashion and dancing, and have a great time!

    Re: Rosebud Rock 'n' Rods Festival 2015

    Hey Jitterbug,
    Thanks for the great write up to what what a fabulous weekend. You are correct when you say we hosted our biggest ever crowd for this fantastic band on the Saturday night. The night was a roaring success and was made even better by the huge Melbourne, country and interstate crowd that came along. Andrew & Ashley did a great floor show and yes, we even had a marriage proposal! A fitting and wonderful way to end the evening.
    Sunday's Rosebud Rock & Rods Festival was also a huge day that started early for some as we were all back for a dance workshop hosted by Andrew & Ashley. The day got even better as the cars rolled in, the crowds again showed up and we were treated to even more great music by the John Lawrence Band, The Lincolns and The Fender Benders.
    On behalf of the Festival Committee and the Rosebud Rockers crew a big thanks goes out to all who support both the Rosebud Rockers and the Rosebud Rock n Rods Festival. Without you guys turning up we wouldn't be able to put on events like this. Another big thanks to all those behind the scenes, sound and lighting, car marshallers, gate staff, traders, committee members and volunteers who worked hard to put this event on. And finally a big thanks to to the bands who played for us.
    Final numbers are yet to be tallied but rest assured a sizable donation will be making it's way to the Rosebud Hospital very soon.
    Looking forward to bigger and better in 2016.
