Hi Everyone

This is the link to my website:

I've been preparing my January gig guide. Could all those who are running dance classes please let me know when they will be restarting in the new year, and what their breakup night will be in December. Thanks.  I'm still waiting on quite a few venues to update their website to show us what they have in December! All checked on 30th.

Even though we can't dance in the clubs and RSL's yet, we can still support their live music, which is mostly solos and duos and will continue that way until the clubs can have more people in their venue. Once we can dance inside again, I'm sure some bands will be getting work again. Just keep on practicing until then. We don't have a crystal ball on how long it will be until we can dance again in the RSL's and clubs.  I did hear a whisper that it will be allowed to happen in a couple of weeks! Here's hoping.

I'm updating on a daily basis, so keep on checking. Quite a few dance classes have re-started (with limited numbers),  and I've included them below under Dance Classes.  If venues have no entertainment I've removed them from the gig guide.

I appreciate it if people let me know if any of my information is incorrect or out of date, particularly with the dance classes...

If any entertainers have any new gigs, or clubs have any special events on, that I haven't included, please send me the information, and I'll add it in.

I have copied this from Phdeliah's newsletter - I have  been asked to mention  that all Dances/Classes are RSVP and LIMITED Numbers or Invitation Only at present..........if you decide not to attend a dance/event that you have Booked for... please remember  to cancel your booking so others can attend.......if you forget to do this you might not be invited to the next event.

If some groups...or Committees cannot get their approvals through ...or not reopen at this  does not  mean that all dancing should cease. 

This might try to explain to Committees and Dancers as to why some can go back dancing and others cannot at present:::

With venues being used for dancing it depends on Venue VS Activity and which COVID Plan takes precedence.

Ausdance QLD (who developed the Government approved plan for Dance & Physical Performing Arts in QLD) suggested that if a venue is licensed then the Hospitality Industry Plan must take precedence over the DPPA Plan. In other Venues, Hall, Studio etc where the Primary purpose is the Dance and not a Hospitality Business then the DPPA takes precedence.

These two plans do not meet and you will find Licensed Venues trying to find loopholes to run raves and nightclubs which are not as careful and regulated as Dance Schools and Dance Committees are.  No alcohol is permitted under the DPPA Plan as the Government advisory people are saying that alcohol will impair behaviour and people will forget to social distance.

There is also a suggestion that uncovered, buffet style food and communal water/tea stations also spread germs with people breathing on food and handling both food and tea/water  BYO all food and non alcoholic drinks is the go..........NOTE food and drinks are not to be shared.

The Committees & Venues that have gone back dancing... are finding.... the BYO process is a great non fuss solution.... and NOT one complaint from the dancers.



UPDATED ROADMAP: Restrictions are changing in Queensland from 4pm, November 17.

We’re carefully easing restrictions as Queensland continues its recovery from the pandemic.

From 4pm on Tuesday November 17:

• Up to 50 people can gather in homes and public spaces across Queensland

• Person limits in indoor premises will increase from 1 person per 4 square metres to 1 person per 2 square metres

• Up to 200 people can attend weddings and funerals, and all guests can dance at weddings, both indoors and outdoors

• Seated, ticketed indoor events like theatre, live music, cinemas and sports can increase patron numbers from 50% to 100%

• Outdoor events can have up to 1,500 people attend with a COVID Safe Event Checklist.

• Open air stadiums can increase seated capacity from 75% to 100% with a COVID Safe Plan

• Outdoor dancing will be allowed, including at events like outdoor music festivals or in beer gardens

Queenslanders have worked hard to stop the spread of the virus, which means we can enjoy more of our Queensland way of life and keep Queensland’s economic recovery plan moving forward.

So I hope there are a few weddings coming up so that we can have 200 at a dance!!!!

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

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.

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 duo or trio that, true to it’s name, presents rapid-fire

rock and roll music that keeps dance floors full all night.

The 2019 highlight for the boys was the release of their CD, Dancin’ Days. This collection of 12 original dance songs blends in beautifully with classics such as Elvis, Beatles, Eddie Cochran and Bill Haley as well as a few 70s show stoppers from the likes of Billy Joel, Eric Clapton and Neil Diamond.

Backed by live-recorded bass & drums, Bob Cole and Andy Stokes provide all live vocals and guitars. For an even fuller sound, we can be joined by Brisbane piano legend, Chas Whitling to perform as a trio.

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.


Bob Cole:       0407 173 690

Andy Stokes: 0412 317 928 (there is a link to their website on the Bands page too.)



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.

Rockabilly, Blues, Alternative Country and Early Rock. Feel, authenticity, love for the genres, Musicianship. Experience, quality, accessible, dance your feet off.

Brothers Matthew and Adam O’Connor have been playing music together for their whole lives and swap instruments like it’s “nothin but a thang”. They have been the backbone of Lock ‘n’ Load for the last 5 years and are still rockin’ that space. But a calling to do some extra repertoire in the intimate setting of a trio has inspired them to combine with a powerhouse drummer and rock a broader range of stuff that will echo with all dance styles. 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!!



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.
