    Geelong Jukebox Rockers Summer R&R Festival

    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 night dance with the Fender Benders. Saturday's activities included dance classes, dance competition and the evening dance with the Smokin' Wingtips. Sunday was the family "picnic" day with live bands playing concurrently at the outdoor stage and the hall at White Eagle House. The 3 bands in attendance comprised the Fender Benders, Atomic Hi Tones/Rockin' Daddies and Shane Magro Combo with its new set up. DJ Jeff played music for more dancing during the band breaks. There was also classic cars, caravans and motor bikes display on the day.

    Weather wise, it was a brilliant sunny day and a huge crowd turned up to enjoy the music, dancing and cars display. All in all, it was a wonderful day catching up with friends from all over Melbourne and country Victoria plus visitors from South Australia too. Well done to Geelong Jukebox Rockers for staging another very successful R&R festival and keeping us rockin' all weekend.

    Here are some videos taken by Margie Ewart during the weekend. Enjoy.....

    It was a fun weekend. Many thanks to the Geelong Jukebox Rockers.

    The Smokin' Wingtips put on an excellent show on the Saturday night.
    This is their own composition "Put Your Wingtips On".

    It's your Association, get involved. Good ideas are always welcome.
    Make sure your R'n'R club or dance school is getting best value.

    Thanks for a great review as always Jitt, 2018 certainly was full of supprises, the band i helped develop, i am no longer with,as I think its up to the youth to pick up speed and fly the flag.. One youth not mentioned Is James Shembri (kid James) who is flooring them all over the country, a bright talented young man, With a future in RnR world wide.. Watch this space!!!
