Queensland reported 13 new community cases of COVID-19 today, triggering a longer lockdown in the state's south-east which will now run until Sunday.

The 13 cases are all linked to a known outbreak which now numbers 31, Deputy Premier Steven Miles said, and includes seven students from Ironside State School who tested positive overnight. Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Logan City, Redlands, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Somerset, Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim, Gold Coast LGAs

THIS APPLIES FROM 4PM TODAY SATURDAY UNTIL 4PM TUESDAY. STAY HOME unless its necessary to go out. Minimise your movements.

The Gold Coast Italo Australian and a lot of other venues are closed or open for takeaways only). Entertainment is cancelled or postponed in all these areas as people are directed to stay home. I've started to mark some but can't keep up at the moment.

Joseph Joynson

A lot of this depends on the specific risk assessments and arrangements that the specific operators have made and if or not Alcohol and food are served AND the detailed reputation for the venues proper management.

I know of one dance venue that had to hand over their liquor licence in order to open for dancing.

They where " raided/ inspected" a couple of times and found, they and their clients to be in compliance AND where invited to have their liquor licence returned.

There are several other venues that have been running classes and opening for dancing while others have not ...... it all comes down to how everything is managed and the minute detail in their management plan AND their proven ability to run the venue in compliance.

Several venues have been "raided/ inspected" ..... the smart ones have come up all smiles others have been given stern warnings. )

Changes have been made to South Tweed Sports Club gigs on Wednesday 28th July, so please download the latest copy of the gig guide for updates.   I've still got quite a few gaps in the August gig guide. I have just done a search of all of those websites and their August gig guides are's uploaded yet. If you are an artist and have a gig on Sunday that I haven't listed, please let me know so that I can update it. I'll keep checking these websites daily until they update. Some won't do it until 1st of the month, but as that is a weekend, some of them might not do the update until the Mon/Tues.

Sunday 25th July.

The Gold Coast Exposure sites have grown, and now include:

Shopping Centres Pacific Fair, Harbour Town, Q Super Centre and Westfield Helensvale are among the locations placed on alert.

Goodstart Early Learning in Parkwood is also listed numerous times over a two week period.

An infected person also visited the playgrounds at Broadwater Parklands last Saturday.

A number of sites are listed as high risk which will force potentially hundreds of people into 14 days quarantine.

Gold Coast places of alert at the Chempro Chemist at the Q Super Centre, and the Black Swan Coffee Shop at the Q Super Centre, both on Friday in the early afternoon, and Pacific Fair on Saturday afternoon.

If you have been in any of the sites mentioned in the news, please get checked a.s.a.p. for your own peace of mind, and those who care for you and that you care for, and quarantine for 14 days as recommended.

I'm lucky I haven't been to those places, after those dates, so I'm safe, but I'll still go and have a check tomorrow, just to be on the safe side.

Stay home as much as possible and stay safe, and wear those masks if you're out.

COVID Safe Events

23 Jul 2021: Dancing is not permitted indoors unless at a wedding, dance studio or dance class. ... operate an area for dancing on the basis that no more than 1 person per 2m.

Restrictions for Impacted Areas – South East Queensland | Health and…

and on the same website:

23 Jul 2021: You are required to wear a mask when dancing indoors or outdoors and you cannot physically distance. ... If you are unable to get a surgical mask, any paper or cloth masks are fine to use.


All Queenslanders must wear a mask when at stadiums, at an airport, and on a domestic or international flight departing or arriving in Queensland.

While not mandatory, you are encouraged to: carry a mask with you at all times when you leave home; wear a mask when travelling on public transport, in a taxi or ride share; in shopping centres; or in any indoor or outdoor space when physical distancing is not possible.

Borders, travel and hotspots

You must complete a travel declaration to enter Queensland from anywhere in Australia or New Zealand. This includes Queensland residents. More information about borders, hotspots and travel declarations can be found on the Queensland Border Declaration Pass website.

P.S. I heard on the news last night (and so did others) that dancing was permitted as long as masks were worn. The  official release above doesn't state that. I think the official stance is no dancing in public venues, unless it's a dance class, studio or wedding. Pauline

If you want to check it out for yourself, please go to the official website,


Hotspots update

All of New South Wales will be a declared hotspot from 1am AEST Friday 23 July 2021.  A New South Wales border zone will come into effect at this time.

A lot of Qld from the Gold Coast to North of Tewantin Noosa, inland including Toowoomba.

This may affect some of the entertainment where the entertainers are from across the borders, so please check with the venue before venturing out to see your favourite band, as they could be changed without notification. Pauline.


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.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

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.

It’s exciting news for young bands, dance groups, and solo artists, because the Northside’s newest youth music festival is back.

Local young performers are being asked to refine their audition tapes for the third annual Sandgate Youth Festival, to be held in October.

Deagon Ward Councillor Jared Cassidy said the festival was a unique event on the Brisbane music scene.

“The festival gives young and emerging performers an opportunity to perform for their community and compete for some great prizes,” Jared said.

“A few years ago, I joined forces with Brendon Hofmeier from local business Beat Connection to put this event together and it’s gone from strength to strength, even during COVID.

“We are putting the call out for young performers to send in their auditions. The last two years has seen some amazing talent from solo artists to dance groups and bands. We know the competition will be hot this year.”

All artists keen to make the grade must submit a performance of a full song by 15 September. The top eight acts will be announced on 23 September and will go on to compete at the festival on 23 October.

Last year, dynamic dance crew Fifth Dynasty took out the top prize of $500.

TWIN TOWNS:   Entertainment listed in Gig Guides

I have been hearing rumours of entertainment starting up again, and I know there are a lot of dissappointed dancers that Twin Towns are not doing much entertainment over Cooly Rocks On period, so I wrote to them to ask for information and this is their response:

Hi Pauline,

I am still doing the entertainment.

We are beginning Wednesdays again and yes there will be a rotation of styles and after the trial period the ones which are well patronised with good uptake of spend across all areas will be retained and possibly expanded, and those which do not perform will be deleted.

As for Cooly Rocks On here is a detailed response sent to an earlier complainant.

“Cooly Rocks is a Gold Coast event, taken over this year by Major Events Gold Coast. It was uncertain if the event would even occur this year until about February and even then they were making plans for further border closures.

One of their contingencies, which will be the case this year, is that the entire event will occur north of the Qld border. This is also a reflection of  their new funding model which is entirely Gold Coast rate payer funder. For the first time I can ever remember we were not asked or even offered a chance to participate in any form, financially or otherwise.

Cooly Rocks poses a huge conundrum for us in that is so commercially unviable, but enjoyed by many. This is due to many factors, especially road closures and also it being a public holiday long weekend in NSW and not in Qld now and for a number of years. It's also a reality that the dance crowd historically do keep our regular members away, are incredibly costly to entertain and do not use all the services sufficiently to make the festival period viable. This is not a new phenomenon but one that in the current climate we were certainly not keen to willingly and knowingly replicate. We will have some genre specific acts, they just won't dominate the venue for the duration.

Prior to COVID the free entertainment costs for the club had risen to over $800,000.00 per annum. This wasn't sustainable so we were already in the process of looking for opportunities for savings along with better targeting and COVID certainly provided a reset. We are now in the process of progressively reintroducing free entertainment and measuring the impact of these events on the overall club. Sadly, judging success on the number of dancers or anything else of this type does not equate to being able to pay the bills in a depressed and post COVID environment. The reality is that despite any desire for it to be otherwise the profits from the sale of drinks and gaming are what fund entertainment, both paid and free. Until these income sources are at a point where they can subsidise more entertainment we will need to be careful with our expenditure in this area.

It is certainly not an issue of the government restricting us at this point, but it is worthy of note that some user groups are less inclined to obey the social distancing rules in NSW than others. This especially relates to the movement of furniture which has specifically been placed in some locations for compliance purposes. It's a battle we have no desire to take on during the festival this year.”

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:…/…



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.


Bob Cole:       0407 173 690 (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.

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!!
