HANKYPANKY. (from Sharron Nichols)

It’s been a busy year as this is a whole new lineup  As you know our beautiful guitarist in The Galaxy Trio (Ivan) died  and left a huge void in our music Russ and I had been with the trio for four years  

So after a lot of consideration we decided to reform but as a band ( 4 piece) with another guitarist who could fill Ivan’s shoes and to include another vocalist for harmonies.

We’ve achieved this after several glitches along the way to find the right people and now with Ray and Alana  we are ready.

Classic Hits band

(They have a promotional video but I couldn't save it here, I'm sorry, Pauline)

for bookings email management@hankypanky.band

The RocknRollaBillys

The RocknRollaBillys are Leona Stevens (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, drums/percussion), Andrew Stokes (back-up vocals, lead guitar, cigar box guitar, electronic drum programming) and Jo-Maree Stokes (Double Bass, support vocals, costuming).  

The RocknRollaBillys were originally conceived by Andrew as a back-up alternative to the popular 'Rock 'n' Roll Boys' when lead singer Bobby Cole was off on one of his overseas adventures.  However, they are quickly becoming a popular favorite amongst the Rock n Roll dancers and clubs of South East QLD. They are commited to re-creating a 'yester-year' experience with great 50's/60's style dance tunes, retro custom-made costuming, and through using instruments common to the era – including Elvis mics. Andrew, Jo-Maree and Leona also know what the dancers like to hear, as they are Rock n Roll Dancers themselves.

The RocknRollaBillys are becoming known as a great club band due to their interesting sound and their unique renditions of popular toe-tapping dance music. They cover classic and more modern Rock and Roll dance tunes as well as Swing, Rockabilly and Jive.  Their targeted, yet diverse, range of tempos cover 4-step, 6-step and 8-step Rock n Roll styles and also allows the more serious dancers to do many other dance styles including Cha Cha, Tango, Lindy Hop, various Partner Dances, and even some Line Dancing.  For those who don't take their dancing that seriously, they can sit back and be entertained by a professional band that will have them laughing, singing along and dancing in their seats as they recreate and reinterpret the great sounds of days gone by fattened up with modern electronic drum/rhythm technology delivered though quality PA and subs.  They also bring enough lighting to effectively add a party/celebratory ambience to the performances and when required can organise Rock 'n' Roll Dance demonstrators to perform.

.Leona Stevens is rightly described as another “Wanda Jackson” or “Emelda Mae”with her powerful bluesy rock 'n' roll/Rockabilly voice and attractive presentation. Leona developed her love for music while hanging around with her older brothers and her father who were working musicians in and around the Sydney music scene. After discovering her uniquely powerful voice they often got her up to sing with them. She also went on to perform in her own bands in Sydney for many years.  As well as an exceptional lead vocalist, Leona is also competent on guitar and drums. Since moving north to Queensland, Leona has been performing extensively in major QLD venues including more recently as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the popular South East QLD club band 'Sera Loons'.  She has shared stages with the likes of Phil Emanuel and performed at many major music venues including regular appearances at the Gympie Music Muster.  

Andrew Stokes has been a professional comedic entertainer and musician for more than 25 years.  He grew up surrounded by music, being the son of a music teacher who had achieved the highest levels of musical training possible on piano.  By the time Andrew was ten years old he was playing piano, trumpet, guitar, cornet, ukulele, and learned to sing harmonies. He also played drums at times in his mother's old-time dance band that performed in the local dance halls in South East Qld towns near where they lived. Andrew went on to play in the clubs and pubs around Brisbane and worked as a booking agent for two major Queensland entertainment booking agencies.  More recently for over 10 years Andrew was the lead guitarist, backup singer, musical director and band leader for the highly successful corporate function band 'The Dukes of Rhythm'.  Andrew also founded, and still performs with, the heavily-booked retro-dance club duo the 'Rock n Roll Boys'. The Rock 'n' Roll Boys have a large following of dancers and repeatedly perform at most of the major Clubs and Rock n Roll/Rockabilly festivals in South East QLD.  They have recently released their first CD of original Rock 'n' Roll style songs.  

Jo-Maree Stokes is the very talented, very patient and long-suffering wife of Andrew Stokes.  Jo-Maree has been involved in music since she was 8 years old when she began lessons on flute and piano.  She went on to perform with various groups and orchestras as well as serving as chorister for large vocal groups.  More recently she has immersed herself in the Rock 'n' Roll/Rockabilly scene taking up the Double Bass, making 50's costumes and helping Andrew build a 1950's style Teardrop camper trailer.  Having endured 'Little Instrument Syndrome' as a flautist for many years, she is very proud that, although she is still the shortest person in the band, she now plays the biggest instrument on the stage.  Joey (as she is affectionately known) drives the band with her consistent pumping double-bass playing makes it a great band to dance to.
