Hi Everyone


This is the link to my website:       www.dancersgigguide.com.au


I URGE YOU TO DOWNLOAD A NEW COPY OF THE MONTHLY GIG GUIDE IF YOU HAVE RECENTLY SAVED IT TO YOUR PHONE.  I have now prepared the November and December gig guides, and put the Christmas Dance dates in that I am aware of. If you know of others that I can include, please let me know. Thanks. Pauline.


When I email out my newsletter once a week (which is copied from here), the links don't work from the email, and you will need to click on the website / newsletter to enable the links to work.


Sometimes the venues change their bands or times without any notification. If you know about any changes to what I have in my gig guide, please feel free to let me know as I'm happy to make changes any time. Every care is taken to be accurate, but I take no responsibility for any changes to that which was previously advertised.


FOR MY FEES TO ADVERTISE, PLEASE CONTACT ME. I do charity work for free, but otherwise anything people want added to the newsletter or gig guides will incur a fee. Email: dancerpauline@me.com for a quote.


NEWSLETTER WEEKLY MAILOUTS!


If you would like to receive my newsletter by weekly email, please write and send me a request, to dancerpauline@me.com.


If any bands have their gig guides ready, or clubs have any special events on, that I haven't included, please send me the information, and I'll add it in.


I appreciate it if people let me know if any of my information is incorrect or out of date, particularly with the dance classes... as I don't go to them all to know what's current.

BEREAVEMENT NOTICE:

It is with deep regret that I have to inform you of the passing of Colin Gerke.

Colin Started dancing with Paradise Rockers a long time ago, and was a member of Gold Coast Rockers for many years, and regularly attended Heartbeat as well as many of the local clubs to dance socially. He was a popular partner for many of the ladies.  He met his beautiful soulmate, Margie Murphy, at dancing and they fell in love very quickly, and have been extremely happy together for 6 years and 3 months. They have loved and supported one another through sickness and the good times. They are both so lucky to have found such deep love.

Colin passed away peacefully Sunday morning, after a long illness. 

Our deepest condolences go out to Margie, and to Colin's and Margie's families. 

Colin's funeral will be next Saturday 20th July at Allambie Gardens at 11am, followed afterwards by a get together,

at 1pm at the Southport CSI Transitions Room. If you are attending, you are invited to wear your Club Colours.

***********************************************************


WHAT’S COMING UP:


VENUES:

BEAUDESERT RSL

On 15th August  the current lease of the building and grounds currently held by the Beaudesert Services Club on William St Beaudesert will be terminated.


THE RAMADA INN

Has CANCELLED ANY FURTHER ENTERTAINMENT, and is undecided on whether it will ever re-start.


WEALTHY REGULAR SAVES GOLD COAST RSL

A WEALTHY benefactor and regular at the Surfers Paradise RSL has stepped in at the “eleventh hour”

with a multi-million rescue plan to prevent it closing.

Currently the downstairs bar room is closed for renovations, and the entertainment is upstairs to the left (same level  as the dining room at at opposite end, bar open upstairs).


CLUB SANDGATE HAS CLOSED IT'S DOORS AS FROM NOW AS THEY HAVE GONE INTO LIQUIDATION.

I presume that they have let all the entertainers with bookings know. I have deleted this venue from all of the gig guides now.


THE MORETON BAY SPORTS CLUB HAVE CEASED TRADING. I have marked the gig guide for the next couple of months indicating that, then deleted in following months. I presume the club has let all their entertainers know.


ALGESTER SPORTS CLUB

I had some feedback from a dancer who went to this venue last week, and he reported there is no dance floor there now. They have done renovations, and he said the club was nice, clean, open, polite staff, plenty of off street parking. The music was quite good, a solo entertainer, nice range of dance music. They tested dancing on the carpet, but it was not fun. So unfortunately they left, as did another couple of dancers.

I have sent the club an email and will ask about the possibility of them putting down a small dance floor, as they have some great entertainment listed this month. It's such a pity that there is nowhere for people to dance.


MURWILLUMBAH RSL

I had some feedback from Brisbane dancers who went down there to see one of their favourite bands, to find there was no dance floor in the room with the band, very disappointing for them. They have a good dance floor in the room next door, but they mustn't be using that for the weekly bands.


GOODNA RSL

Has a very tiny dance floor, fitting no more than 2-3 couples.


BROTHERS LEAGUES

Has a dance floor, but it's non-slip tiles, so isn't practical for dancing.


BRIGHTON BOWLS CLUB

Don't have a dance floor.


CABOOLTURE SPORTS CLUB

Their website is very time-consuming to use. To find out the time of one event I have to do about 4 clicks before I get to the next event. Please double-check the times if you want to go to this venue.

________________________________


DANCE FLOOR COURTESY

With the busier dance floors, remember to take a hand-towel with you and if you perspire a lot, to freshen yourself up with a deodorant occasionally, and men, take clean shirts and change them when you get a bit wet. It's awful dancing with someone with a wet shirt.  And remember your dance-floor courtesy, if it's crowded, look around you and take diverse action to avoid a collision and apologise if you do step on someone. Ladies, if you can see that your partner is heading for a collision you can put a little pressure on his shoulder to pull him back and indicate where the danger is. And please! No drops or props on a crowded floor. It's so dangerous. And ladies, please try to avoid those pointy high heels on the dance floor. They hurt when they land on your feet and can do serious damage.

If there is a mixture of dance styles on the floor, the ballroom or circle partner dancers have the outside circle heading in an anti-clockwise direction. Rock n Roll dancing and line dancing are in the middle.


The Ten Commandments of Social Dancing (I robbed this from facebook):

1. Thou shall wear deodorant and brush thine teeth. Always. And thou shall ask thy friends whether you require more deodorant or teeth-brushing than currently.

2. If thine friend asks if they require more deodorant or breath  mints, thou shall not lie.

3. Thou shall not purposely touch your partner’s bottom, breasts, or other private areas with your hands, or touch any part of their body with your tongue or mouth without their permission. If thou decides to do such things, your partner may leave your company or slap thy cheek (either one).

4. Thou shall remember that dips are not necessary in every dance or with every partner. Thou shall realize that the follow shall hold thine own weight, and that the lead shall not force thine follow into awkward and uncomfortable positions against their will.

5. Thou shall never give unsolicited advice during a social dance, under threat of social exile.

6. Thou shall recognize that dance is a journey, not a race. More patterns at fast speeds does not a great dancer make.

7. Thou shall not lift on the dancefloor. Partners are not weights, and the social floor is not a gym.

8. Thou shall respect the word and actions of ‘No’. Thou shall recognize that your partner may decline a dance, may decline a move, or may decline thine advances – and that it is thy duty to not force thy will upon them.

9. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself. Thou shall treat all dancers with respect and dignity.

10. Thou shall dance at thy level, or the level of thy partner (whichever is lower). If ye wish to to use more difficult moves, you shall seek out training. With a professional – not YouTube


SPACE

As dance floors appear to get smaller, (and hopefully dance numbers larger) dance space is very important.

As a basic rule, your arms should not become straight.

(Ballroom is slightly different)


1. it uses up dance space

2. looks awkward, as you usually bend over as well

3. uses up energy and time in the bigger movements

4. straight arms don't have the strength, tension nor control of bent arms.


It shouldn' matter if you are Line Dancing, Cha Cha, RnR, Jive etc. if there is a shuffle step, keep it tight, think minimal, always keep your body over your feet, otherwise it looks like you are in a 'gallop', (and using a lot of space) awkward and cumbersome. Back steps should be tight, toe of foot going back, level with the heel of the front foot.

Obviously if there is a sparse dance floor, and the music reasonably slow, you can spread things out a little.

On a busy dance floor be conscious of swinging your arms about, and routines that require extra space (remember 'Dancecraft').

basically the faster the music, the smaller your steps and arm movements should be.

We are talking Social Dancing here, not Competition, but if you crave the limelight, and executing 'big' moves, join dance groups that participate in competition events, where you have the appropriate environment and space.

(click here for bio)

Dave Brooke - (Lead Guitarist / Vocalist).

Dave has been a lead guitarist and vocalist for over 30 years in Australia.

Dave's music career began in Sydney in the late 80's performing as a soloist as well as in Bands and Duos over the east coast of Australia. Dave has a unique ability to authenitically recreate the sounds and styles of the most famous Guitarists in the World.

There are few guitarists that can authenitcally replicate the sounds of:

Hank Marvin (The Shadows), Buddy Holly, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits), Scotty Moore (Elvis Presley), the Surf Music from the 60's, Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) and George Harrison (The Beatles).


Mark Aitken - (Bass guitarist / Vocalist).

Mark has played and sung in bands and duos for over 40 years.

His early band years were spent in Melbourne, which was the hub of the Australian music scene at that time, and so was an ideal environment to play with top bands and gain valuable live band experience. He has continued playing bass guitar and performing vocals with bands in Brisbane and Northern NSW since moving north in 1989.

Musical influences include 60's British pop: The Easybeats, The Beatles, The Shadows, Bee Gees, Eagles, Elton John, Robbie Williams and Keith Urban. Mark plays the role of the RollerCoasters bass guitarist / vocalist.

Music has always been a passion for Mark and he is dedicated to performing and entertaining the crowd with an extensive great list of songs with The RollerCoaster members.


Ken Rickard - (Drums and Vocals).

Ken has had many long hard years of experience on drums / Harmony vocals which includes years of touring UK and Europe with various bands including BBC/ Deram recording artists The Pebbles with Ken as the original drummer. Also touring and gig work in both New Zealand and Australia. Ken is a massive fan of 60's music but in particular has a passion for Beach Boys, The Hollies, The Shadows, The Beatles, The Everly Brothers and the Eagles to name just a few. Ken provides a solid rhythm foundation for The RollerCoasters during their authentic renditions of some of the greatest songs ever penned.

BILLY CARTE

I now also have a rock and roll solo act under the name of Billy Carte.  Included in my repertoire are some songs from mid fifties artists I have been researching e.g. Charlie Feathers, Johnny Burnette, Warren Smith, and of course the early Carl Perkins.  They are worth a look on YouTube if you get a chance. Details are shown below for a gig at Just Rock Ipswich in February.


From Mike from Cool Change.

_________________________________________


Recently we were entertained at a party by Rik-A-Shay duo who played terrific Rock n Roll plus a variety of other songs - they have 3000 in their repertiore, so can play a huge variety. Rik and Shay have been together for about 15 years and are a very tight unit husband and wife team who perform and harmonise beautifully. They have performed to Rock n Roll crowds up North Qld way around the Gladstone and Rockhampton areas with a huge following, and have been living and performing in WA recently, and just  moved to the Gold Coast. If you get the chance to see them, don't miss it, and don't be afraid to ask them to play some RnR for you (or whatever else you like).  They are also Wedding Singers just for your special day!

They are available on 0429 669 905 / 0497 936 702.

"What is Michael Up to?"


There were a number of unexpected band changes last year so I thought I should give you a run down on what the current state of play is an even I was starting to find it somewhat confusing.


Michael Asma (Solo)

I will continue with my solo work as required.


Hot Wire

As you may be aware Hot Wire was supposed to wind up at the end of 2016. However we have been given continued work with Twin Towns on a number of Wednesdays throughout 2017. As we have really enjoyed working at this venue in the past and Wednesdays do not come into conflict with our other individual band commitments, we have all agreed to continue with these gigs.


Take Care & Keep Rockin
