Hi Everyone


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


Please download a fresh copy of the gig guide often. I'm still waiting on some venues to update their websites with their May gig guide. Please check with the venue if you're not sure before you travel, and please let me know if I need to make any corrections.


COVID NEWS: WE CAN NOW DANCE IN QLD AND NSW!

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


Thursday 15 April, 6am, restrictions eased in QLD:

Dancing: Dancing is allowed in all indoor and outdoor venues including pubs, beer gardens, clubs and nightclubs, subject to the one person per 2m2 rule.

Gatherings: 100 people allowed to gather at homes, no limit for people gathering in outdoor public spaces across QLD.


Outdoor events: Anzac Day parades, fetes, fun runs and other outdoor only events do not need a COVID Safe Event Checklist or Event Plan.

____________


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.


NSW - You can now dance in clubs and pubs etc.


For the first time in more than 12 months, there will be no COVID-19 restrictions on dancing in NSW after the state government announced a major relaxation of social distancing measures.


The overhaul will take effect from 12.01am on Monday March 29 and also means masks will no longer be mandatory on public transport.


From Monday 29 March:

No caps on numbers at weddings and funerals

No restrictions on singing anywhere

No restrictions on dancing anywhere

No cap on visitors in the home (if there are more than 100 people there must be a COVID-19 safety plan and electronic recording of visitor details)

100 per cent seated capacity at entertainment venues (stadiums, theatres etc)

Mask use on public transport will move from "mandatory" to "strongly recommended"

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Pam and Roy Blowers have been creating a portfolio of online utube dance lessons and will be continuing to add to the collection.

The concept behind our online utube dance lessons is - mixing styles and steps according to one's level of fitness and physical ability.

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

MUSICIANS / BANDS

Colin & The Dynamos

Colin Cooper known as 'The Man in the Black Hat' was the popular lead singer with the classic rock 'n roll "Dance On Band" and has worked from north of Brisbane through the Gold Coast to the Northern Rivers of NSW - and beyond. His toe-tapping music and choice of professional musicians ensures popularity with dancers and toe-tapping audiences wherever he plays.


Colin has enjoyed a lengthy career in the music industry. A talent scout spotted Colin in Sydney at a Port Hacking High School concert and suggested that he audition for Television's legendary "Bandstand" programme, where the teenage 5'10" Colin teamed with the ever-so-tall Pee Wee Wilson of the Delltones, to perform the newsly released "Mr Bassman".


His easy-to-listen-to singing style ensured long term contracts on the Sydney Club Circuit. Although he sang the popular rock 'n roll songs of the era, Colin is a lover of Country Music and was billed as "Australia's Glen Campbell".


"Many of the songs which I am still singing are the hit songs we all loved so long ago" Colin recalls. When asked his favourite artist, Colin replies "Roy Orbison, Elvis, Bill Haley, The Beach Boys, J O'K and so many others - I love them all".


A long-time resident of the Gold Coast, Colin looks forward to again working with talented and professional musicians - Peter Brown Brent Lillie and Baden Hutchins.

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.

NEW:

SUPER CRUISE 2021 - HAS BEEN POSTPONED WITH A NEW SAILING DATE SET FOR 9th of November 2022.

Departing Sydney on Ovation of the Seas, 9-16 November 2022 for seven nights. We are also delighted to advise that all headline performers and majority of musicians from the original  line-up will be returning.


ABOUT ROCK THE BOAT 2022 – SUPER CRUISE

9 - 16 NOVEMBER 2022

Rock the Boat returns for its biggest Rock music festival at sea in as part of SUPER CRUISE 2022, showcasing the best of International and Australian rock artists spanning a colourful decade of past cruises presented by Choose Your Cruise.


Rock the Boat 2022 is set to be one of the biggest releases of any music cruise to date. Following the decision made to reschedule 2021’s Super Cruise due to the continued impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rock the Boat will return bigger and better than ever on board Royal Caribbean’s incredible mega ship Ovation of the Seas sailing ex-Sydney from 9-16 November 2022.


Due to popular demand, and for the very first time, American Rock legend Suzi Quatro will be headlining for her second cruise following the overwhelming success of 2019’s cruise. The Wild One will be performing with 20 fellow rock acts including The Angels, a band that Aussie icon Jimmy Barnes claims “Changed Australian music forever”. Adam Thompson of Chocolate Starfish will present his popular Bohemian Rhapsody live in concert along with Russell Morris, Ross Wilson and The Radiators – all of whom have been Rock the Boat fan favourites throughout the years.


Guests on board 2022’s Super Cruise can ‘Choose Your Cruise’ by selecting either a Cruisin’ Country Experience or Rock the Boat Experience onboard for which headliner shows they would like to attend. Passengers can also enjoy twice the entertainment on board regardless of their cruise preference as each of the other performances from rock and country acts around the ship are open to all guests.


Passengers are guaranteed a music festival at sea experience like no other, where even returning passengers can look forward to new and exciting features Ovation of the Seas has to offer. The largest ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet to visit Australian waters houses over 2,000 cabins which can hold a total of 4,905 guests at full occupancy.  Performance spaces include the Royal Theatre, state of the art TWO70 which features floor-to-ceiling windows by day then ultra-HD video screens by night, the Music Hall and old favourites like the Schooner Bar, all of which will be boasting and array of entertainment night and day.


Guests on board Super Cruise 2022 can also look forward to two relaxing ports of call on the seven-night itinerary. Firstly, stopping in Noumea (New Caledonia), a French territory offering a vibrant beachside culture with indulgent eateries at the postcard-worthy Lemon Bay being among one of our passenger favourites. Then, Mystery Island (Vanuatu), a tiny uninhabited island which can only be accessed by cruise passengers can provide you with the sense of true island life where you can meet the locals who travel to greet guests from surrounding islands and quiet serenity where you can enjoy some of the clearest waters the South Pacific has to offer.


ABOUT CRUISIN’ COUNTRY 2022 – SUPER CRUISE

9 - 16 NOVEMBER 2022

Cruisin’ Country returns for its biggest Australian Country music festival at sea in as part of SUPER CRUISE 2022, showcasing the best of  Australian Country artists spanning a colourful decade of past cruises presented by Choose Your Cruise.
