Hi Everyone


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


From 1am Saturday 15 January, all domestic Queensland border restrictions will be removed 🚫. Travellers will be able to move freely into and out of the state. Restrictions are being removed because we expect 90% of Queensland to be fully vaccinated by next week.

This means interstate travellers can enter Queensland without needing a👇

👉 Border Pass

👉 Negative COVID-19 test result

👉 Proof of vaccination status

Once in Queensland, you will still need your proof of vaccination to visit events and venues ✅.

🗺️ Border restrictions for international travellers will remain in place for now.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet says singing and dancing will be banned in hospitality venues from Saturday until January 27 as the peak of the Omicron variant moves through the state.

DANCE TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS

If I haven't listed when your Christmas break is with last date this year and resumption date, can you please let me know?


It is hard to keep up with the latest, so please feel free to call the helpline 134 COVID (13 42 68), to find out for yourself.

For updates go to https://www.covid19.qld.gov.au/


NSW CLUBS/PUBS:

New Entry Requirements:

From Monday 11 October, under the NSW Government’s Public Health Order,

all members and guests must provide a digital or printed copy of their Covid-19 Vaccination Certificate prior to entering the club. See latest announcement at the top of this newsletter.


QLD CLUBS/PUBS:

From 17th December we will unfortunately have to follow the Queensland Government mandate of NO Entry to any person who is not double vaccinated. This is not a policy or rule that the Clubs have set but a State Government decision.

Some dances that are in HALLS may allow unvaccinated people in.

_______________________________________________


IF YOU'RE IN DOUBT WHETHER EVENTS ARE STILL ON, PLEASE CHECK WITH THE VENUE OR THE ARTISTS, changes happen often these days.


We must remember that most of our dancers in the Rock n Roll scene are in their 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, and are in the  vulnerable group, so if anyone has any symptoms (even if it's 'just a cold') please stay home to protect everyone else.

We have created a facebook page, which lists all our utube videos, (see link under Classes page) - we are up to Utube 21 and will be continuing to add to our collection.

DANCE FLOOR COURTESY

Here is the Gold Coast Rockers Etiquette on the Dance Floor:

1.     Wear clothing and dance shoes that make it easy and enjoyable to dance in.

2.     Personal Grooming - Shower and use a deodorant. Always take a hand towel, deodorant and a clean shirt to freshen up.  

         Brush teeth and use mouthwash or breath freshener. Abstain from foods that produce strong odours eg. garlic. The odour

         of cigarettes on one's breath or clothing is unattractive.

3.      Please ask ladies: Would you like to dance?

4.      Please ask men: Would you like to dance?

5.      Declining to dance: No thank you, I'm taking a break.

6.     Sharing the floor: If there is a mixture of dance styles on the floor, ballroom or circle partner dancers have the outside

         circle heading in an anti-clockwise direction.  Rock n Roll dancing is in the middle, Swing on the side.

7.     Dips and Lifts: The only thing to be said about aerials on the social dance floor is: Don't do them. While they may look 'cool'

         the execution of aerials requires training by a qualified instructor. Don't do them by yourself unless you are trained, and

         certainly don't do them on the social dance floor.

8.     Today's beginners will be the good dancers of tomorrow, so be nice to them and dance with them.

9.     Smile, be warm, be personable, be nice.

10.     Be considerate of other couples on the floor. Exercise good floor craft.  No large steps to be taken, dancing should be

         done in a 3 ft circumference.

11.     No stilettos to be worn on the dance floor.

12.       Be happy, be social and have FUN

The Rock'n'Roll Boys, a great-sounding duo from Gympie

The Rock n Roll Boys is a Gympie-based  trio that, true to it’s name, presents rapid-fire rock and roll music that keeps dance floors full all night.


Bob Cole has advised they're back on deck for 021, albiet with a line-up change. We are now a permanent trio with the addition of keyboard and a third harmony singer.

Rock and Roll dancers flock to our shows from Brisbane to Gladstone. We also play most of the major retro-styled festivals across SE and central Qld. We’ve all been in and around the entertainment game for well over 30 years so we feel we have a pretty good handle on what people want when it comes to this style of dance music.

We provide top quality, non-stop rock and roll that keeps people on to the dance floor and can add dinner music as well if you wish.

We are equally at home playing in small and large venues and have an expandable PA system that can be adapted for the smallest room, the largest auditorium or any outdoor venue. Our repertoire is squarely aimed at those who love good old rock and roll music and love to dance.

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.

They have been the backbone of Lock ‘n’ Load for the last 5 years and are still rockin’ that space.

Come see this band and you will not regret the effort as they will infect you with the enthusiasm of the great music genres of the 20th Century. GET ALONG!!
