The Clyde foreshore goes Rock-a-billy

Last Sunday, by a stunning Clyde River backdrop saw the Batemans Bay Rock n Rollers conduct a trial run of offering music and dance to Batemans Bay. Co- Organiser Leisa Tague presented the event with new dancers, a new band and a little stage fright saying "next time we will go more public" when it comes to promoting the event to the wider community.

Hand in hand with the Sculpture For Clyde exhibition a cross the road and a glorious Fathers Day an audience in excess of 100 to enjoy the Shack Shakers of Batemans Bay playing up a storm.

Rock a Billy comes to the Bay in a swirl this Sat Sep 7th

No Brakes - Rock n Roll / Rockabilly band this Saturday Sept 7th at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club hosted by Batemans Bay Rock n Rollers 7:30pm-11:30pm Sydney based band No Brakes are having a ball this year playing their unique brand of rock n’ roll, rockabilly and country with an infectious energy that fills the dance floor and simply feels good! Drawing on a great wellspring of music from the 50’s they balance tradition and innovation to produce a sound that is retro on rocket fuel! The recipe is refreshingly straight forward with no bells, mirrors or computers – just four musicians who are passionate students of this era and deliver with enthusiasm. Lead vocals in the style of early Elvis, with moves to match, Big Double Bass slapped within an inch of it’s life, sizzling Gretsch guitar in the style of the Stray Cats and real drums played with perfect dance tempos.

Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door.
