Hi Everyone


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


Please download a fresh copy of the gig guide daily as there are so many changes happening daily.


COVID NEWS:


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 www.covid19.qld.gov.au


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.


Dancing is allowed in all of Qld, but still no dancing in NSW allowed.


NSW - Face masks are no longer mandatory in hair and beauty salons, places  of worship and gaming rooms in Greater Sydney from 12 February. People working in  hospitality venues like cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants will also no longer need to don a mask.

However, masks remain mandatory on public transport, in taxis and in ride-sharing services.

Also among today's eased restrictions is the replacement of the 4 square metre rule with the 2 square metre rule, though that excludes gyms.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _


We can dance in Qld clubs and pubs from Monday 14th December,

Things have eased a little and more numbers are now allowed through the door but BYO supper and drinks is still in place for dances. Social groups and family groups can sit together, with 1.5mtrs between each group.  

There is still in place the contract tracing lists and RSVP LIMITED NUMBERS NO WALK INs for all dances.

SINGLES ARE WELCOME TO DANCES and you can change partners with hand sanitizing in between partners.

I  have been asked to mention  that all Recreational Structured Partner Dancing /Classes are RSVP and LIMITED Numbers or Invitation Only at present NO WALK INs..........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. 


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I appreciate it if people let me know if any of my information is incorrect or out of date, particularly with the dance classes...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

NEWS FLASH!!!

PLAN B

There are people who are travelling from interstate and far and wide to our “The Atomic Hi-Tones” and “The Hellcat III” event, so we don’t want to inconvenience anyone.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the COVID situation in Victoria and the uncertainty of bringing up “The Atomic Hi-Tones” from Melbourne, we have three choices.

1. We wait until Thursday to see if Melbourne is cleared for travel to Queensland.

2. If not, we will get “The Hellcat III” to play from 7pm – 11pm and still have a dance.

3. We cancel altogether and wait for a better opportunity when both bands can play.

Should “The Atomic Hi-Tones” not be given the go ahead by Thursday then Breakaways will go with option 2. with “The Hellcat III.

Full refunds will be given to those who choose not to come or half refund, which can also be held in trust for our next event, if preferable.  

You can email me and let me know what you decide. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you for your understanding.

Jean Mustafa

President

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.

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!!
