|Lots of stuff has been going on…been plenty of dancing with some good acts up the club and at other venues…Deb and Jac a couple of weeks ago….It was suppose to be David Price and Jaccii but David had the flu, and last weekend with Matt and Steve was a beauty. Their great rock and roll performers and fill the floor, they even tripped out the sensor twice….they were rocking the roof off the joint.|
thanks fellas for a great arvo.
And what’s with Steady, on the floor more than once in a night, struth, almost back to his old self…
We also miss our MU, she has a bad back at the moment, but some positive thinking will see her back soon…..she better be….I miss my MU.
And the Pest is out with a sore back as well, from shifting stones for a path – that slave driving Cusso,,,all good him sunning himself on the beach at work while his little Pest does all the heavy lifting…mmm, have to ask him his secret.
| It was great to catch up with Danny andf Janette after so much time away in WA.|
|Theres always one!|
|It was all to much for Steady, getting up to dance more than twice in a night took it’s toll….poor old bastard…|
|After a hard day working on my Bedford project the FIFO gang and friends all come back to our place and the Moonshine Room for a B.B.Q and Bon fire.|
That was a great night considering it had been wet and windy right up until that day, then it cleared to a beautiful day, the stars came out, and the wind disappeared.
Thanks all for coming,
|So, whats on this weekend.|
|Saturday 13th - Garry James Worrigee Sports Club – tiny floor but you know you will get some dancing with Garry.|
Saturday 13th - Graphiti Greenwell Pt Bowlo – fantastic couple,,,Mike and Monica, some dancing, but star performers worth just kicking back and listening..
SBCC - Sunday 14th....Jacii & Dave.
Should be a good arvo, they played a great mix of tunes to suit everyone last time.
We have enough to keep us satisfied and our toes a tappin…
|I had a visitor today – Rob and his 1927 Chevy truck. I have done some signwriting on his tailgate so he called in to show me how it came out when it was put back on the truck.|
What a rig…he found it as a complete rusted wreck and bought it for 400 dollars, but with all the old boards rotted but still piled in the chassic so he had templates for the resto.
|Rock A Billy|
What an arvo – this man rocks when he’s on…His mix was great and he had the dance floor pumping with heaps of people getting amongst it – it seems ages since that has happened….Billy plays some classics but there different to everyone elses, so we don’t hear them that much and it was great to dance to – he always provides us with some swing, rock and roll and a couple of waltz’s etc thrown in. Right from the start….a few slower numbers, then some dance numbers…a couple more slower ones and then some more dance numbers – Your never sitting around much. I wore myself out again…it’s been a while since I did that…good to see so many others enjoying the dance floor as well.
|What’s on this weekend.|
Well Saturday the old coffee garage at Wandandian will be now opening as some sort of retro, vintage, old antique stuff store and have asked us to come along and do some dancing – not sure how many will turn up but Sybil and I are going for a little while a bit later…They are suppose to have some sort of duo playing…not sure who, and the dancing will be on concrete, so Im not expecting to much, but you never know!
There's a new shop opening in Wandy "Creative Vintage Centre" (where the Coffee Garage used to be) on the 16th July at 10am. They are hoping to get a lot of Kustom, Classic & Hot Rods and Rock & Roll music & dancers for the opening.
What’s ya lot otherwise for this weekend.
Been a bit slack of late – actually been a bit busy with all manner of things so haven’t bothered keeping the info flow rolling.
But this weekend we have no excuse for not getting our toes moving, our bums wigglin, and our hearts racing.

for all those that are interested….The David Price Band rocked our Xmas World last year so this year we thought we would go with them again, but they will have the 5 piece band this year with the inclusion of their great Sax player….It going to be a blast – have to let us know asap because ther has already been a lot of people commit, and we have limited numbers, cause we want to keep it small and plenty of room…It aint about the numbers or money, it’s all about having fun…
|Happy Mothers day all you FIFO ladies.|
Seems the mynistry is growing, the Mexican chapter is growing and posting great shots of their gang wearing their colours. Great to see a bunch with such a great sense of humour, we could do with some of that up here..seems some local lots have taken our FIFO name as a personal insult….rediculous – it’s always about them a!! or so they think….hahahahaaa.
It’s just about having some fun and going against the flow…. so relax take a chill pill and put a smile on your dial….it will help…
|Maitland Rock and Roll Festival.|
Some of the gang made the trip to Maitland for the R&R Festival…by all reports they had a blast. numbers were down and this might have something to do with the event not being promoted enough as a lot of people they spoke to who live local didn’t even know the event was on..
Hopefully they keep it going.
The Beddy windshield screen – she be known as “Bones”
|Sunday arvo at the club.|
Darcy and Garry James were our entertainers and that’s exactly what they did…Darcy makes you smile and the usual reserved Mr James comes alive more than usual in the company of Darcy.
A great duo and we hope they do more gigs together.
A great mix of songs, not all rock and roll, but plenty enough and nicely spread to keep everyone interested, and more than happy to do what you wanted.
I danced with most of the ladies at least a few times, Hoover did his wing man best and I managed to drag Brommy up screaming and scratching, we had a good fun dance once she realaxed and exchanged some bodily fluid…sorry about the sweaty back Brommy, but you ran your hands down it….so don’t blame me.
Wazza showed us his style in a way that will be hard to erase from the memory for quite some time.
All in all a great arvo that finished to soon…
After two camping trip old Steady still doesn’t know how to erect his tent – both trips he has managed to arrive late and had his FIFO mates put up his plastic abode…first Sybil and I at Durras, and now Cusso and the Pest at Maitland….nice move if you can arrange it.
And I guess real men use pink a! – here we see steady doing his daily chores using his new pink broom and pan…such a good boy!.
NO PRACTICE THIS WEEK. 10th May - HALL IS PRE BOOKED. SEE YA NEXT WEEK!
