Billy Buckett 2018

Back in April 2013, Cath Mundy & Jay Turner, in conjunction with Beenleigh Theatre Group put on a hugely-successful season of 'Billy Buckett – A Rock'n'Roll Love Story' at the Crete Street Theatre, Beenleigh.

The show ran for 9 nights plus a Preview.  Every evening was a sell-out, there were 7 standing ovations & the show went on to win 5 Categories at the Gold Coast Area Theatre Awards later that year, including 'Most Nominated Production'.

Now, in conjunction with Footlights Theatrical Inc. of Beenleigh, Cath & Jay are aiming to take a majority of the talented 2013 'Billy Buckett' cast & stage-band 'The Asteroids' into the professional arena, with a season at SunPAC Theatre at Sunnybank, May 16-19, 2018.

In order to be able to hire the theatre & its technical staff, design, build & transport the scenery, supply props & wardrobe, as well as promote the show successfully, Footlights are mounting a Pozible Crowd-Funding Campaign to raise a minimum of $10,000.

The campaign will feature a live-to-air Launch Event Facebook Webcast at 12:00 noon on Saturday Oct 21, 2017, with the lead actors Steve Dorrington, Lauren Lee Innis-Youren, Doug Rumble, Allison Nipperess, Ian Maurice & Linda Hall singing songs from the show, backed by The Asteroids.

Donations can be pledged between October 17 & November 15, 2017

Just click the link

There are rockin' Campaign rewards to enjoy, as well as loving the feeling that you have helped to take this wonderfully enjoyable show to the next level.

Thanks a million!

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.  

Here is the link to our facebook page.


[FREE Rumba basic step lesson] You can use this move in any social dance situation. In this video lesson you will master the "side basic step" in the American style Rumba. This is the most basic step of the Rumba and is perfect for beginners. We break down the count, the steps for men & women, lead and follow + tips! Click below to watch it now:…/…



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

Raff De has an infectious style and performs with a class and sophistication that very few artists can achieve.

He is at home on stage whether performing in a restaurant or a Sunday session beer-garden environment, choosing songs from his incredibly extensive repertoire to suit the audience to whom he is entertaining.

Raff De suits suit every occasion so you can have confidence in booking him for your next event and know the outcome will be exactly what you wanted… entertaining and fun!

Raff’s repertoire consists of songs from the following artists, as well as many others.


Or click on Bands at the top of the  page and click on their name for the link.



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.


Just Rock Ipswich (social dancing)

Monday 19th February 2018

7:30pm - 9:30pm

From Mike from Cool Change.


On the weekend, we were entertained at a party by Rik-A-Shay duo who played terrific Rock n Roll plus a variety of other songs - they have 3000 in their repertiore, so can play a huge variety. Rik and Shay have been together for about 15 years and are a very tight unit husband and wife team who perform and harmonise beautifully. They have performed to Rock n Roll crowds up North Qld way around the Gladstone and Rockhampton areas with a huge following, and have been living and performing in WA recently, and just  moved to the Gold Coast. If you get the chance to see them, don't miss it, and don't be afraid to ask them to play some RnR for you (or whatever else you like).  They are also Wedding Singers just for your special day!

They are available on 0429 669 905 / 0497 936 702.



This band has now disbanded.

The Rock n' Roll Dance on Sunday 4th March 2018, Southport Community Centre, which was a fundraiser for Parkinson's Disease.... IS NOW CANCELLED.

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)
