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

"The Jive Cats"  (link to their website on BANDS page)


The Jive Cats are Queensland's premier 3 piece Swing-Rockabilly-Rock'n'Roll-Jump  band with a 5 piece sound, ripping out songs from the Stray Cats, Imelda May, Johnny Burnett, Ricky Nelson, Robert Gordon, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Louis Jordan, Brian Setzer Orchestra and anyone else who had a crack at rockabilly, rock'n'roll and swing.


The Jive Cats have a sensational repitoire of Swing, Rockabilly & good ol' Rock and Roll tunes and travel back to the 40's and 50's Swing era for the folks who want to Jump, Jive and Wail!


The name may be new but there's nothing new about the boys that are the Jive Cats.

With a load of R'n'R miles under their belts, the boys have just about done it all (except for becoming famous recording artists!) and are now pouring their heart and soul into their passion that is Swing & Rockabilly.


Experience the crisp clean refreshing punchy sound of the Jive Cats by grabbing them for your next

Special Event,  Dance, Club,  Function,  Car Show,  Party or for any other reason you want to have a rockin' good time!


Paul:  was a founding member of "The Rockafellas" who were the busiest R'n'R band in the early

90s to the 2000's on the Gold Coast.

In 2001, Paul Joined "The Good Rockin Daddys" and remained with them until their demise in

the mid 2000s.

Paul has also been Bass player on tour for the last 2 years with the fabulous "Wickety Wak".


Wayne: is a huge fan of rockabilly guitarists including Brian Setzer, which shows in his fantastic guitar skills and fabulous vocals.

Wayne who hails from Melbourne played for a few years with "Dance On" before joining the very popular band "The Good Rockin Daddys".

Wayne still does the odd show with ”Dance On” and still has a very successful solo career.


Danny: has trampled out a well worn path during his carreer playing in bands such as The Eagles Band, Vegas Kings, Quo Vardis (Status Quo tribute) as well as The Suzie Quatro Experience.

He has now reached his pinnacle by slotting right in with The Jive Cats! As well as Dan being a fun guy, he brings a very lively tight sound that exudes pure "Danceability" .....oh... and he's pretty damn good too!

PPR Express (click here for flyer)


PPR Express are now a 4 piece band, with Pete van Roy joining as drummer and Roger Dunlop moving to the front on guitar and vocals. They are sounding better than ever, and are very entertaining. They do a great comical Kiwiana section if requested. (A Great Dance Band! Pauline)


I have just put up on U tube a snippet of our new song "Now You Shake".  

It was recorded on an Iphone but it is going into the studio soon with a  better video to follow.

We are hoping it will be well-received as we will include it in our gigs and shows.

I hope you enjoy it.  

The song last around high 3 minutes and the riff carries through the tune.

Performed by Peter Hall on Bass, Roger Dunlop on Drums with Phil Eizenberg on lead.

This song was given to Peter by Ray Columbus (and the Invaders) when Peter was Musical Director for Ray.     Pete does the song justice.


We hope it goes mildly viral.    (gen Y talk)

Bravo: Cruise of the Performing Arts

31st October - 7 November. 7 Nights.

NEW SOLO TRAVELLER PROMOTION

Many of you will know that our passengers on Bravo are more elderly than our traditional music charters. In addition to this we have 70-80 wheelchairs on board. Even though we never oversell the capacity of the showroom the need to get everybody seated comfortably and leave additional room for those that are mobility challenged has encouraged us to take an even more conservative view.


In this case, we will carry a few less passengers. This can be achieved by leaving some empty cabins or by carrying more singles.

To begin with, we have decided to offer the opportunity for singles to travel on sole occupancy for  only 50% surcharge rather than the normal 100%.


SOLO TRAVELER PRICING:

Interior Stateroom:

Was $5228 NOW $3921

Oceanview Stateroom:

WAS $6624 NOW $4968

Balcony Stateroom

WAS $8286 NOW $6215


This will be strictly capacity controlled and will be withdrawn as soona s we have reduced the overall capacity to the desired level. This is for new bookings only and is available immediately.
