The good old days of rock ’n’ roll

THE pioneers of the Australian Rock N Roll era have joined together in concert for the first time in 60 years to go on tour.  This is not one you want to miss! 

THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF ROCK ’N’ ROLL is an exciting and memory riddled show presented by Bob McKinnon. From television shows including Johnny O’Keefe’s “SIX O’CLOCK ROCK” and Brian Henderson’s “BANDSTAND”, so many talented performers and recording stars were born. This is not a tribute concert … this is the real deal. 

In THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF ROCK ’N’ ROLL audiences will re-live all the fabulous original hits from the hitmakers themselves – LITTLE PATTIE, DIGGER REVELL, JADE HURLEY, DINAH LEE and LUCKY STARR.

LITTLE PATTIE debut single “He’s My Blonde Headed, Stompie Wompie, Real Gone Surfer Boy” / “Stompin” which used the surf music style and a dance style craze that was known as ‘The Stomp’.  It was released in November 1963 when she was aged 14, and reached No. 2 on the Sydney music charts. Further hits included “We’re Gonna Have a Party Tonight” (#18 in March 1965), “Pushin’ a Good Thing Too Far” (#28 in March 1965) and “Dance Puppet Dance” (#9 in October 1965).  

DINAH LEE (the ONE AND ONLY Queen of the MODS) is a New Zealand born SUPERSTAR with her International Number One Hits “Don’t You Know Yockomo”, “Reet Petite” and “Do the Blue Beat” and is acknowledged as New Zealand’s greatest musical import to Australia.

JADE HURLEY OAM dubbed by Johnny O’Keefe as “Australia’s King of Country Rock” is Australia’s very own “Piano Man” with the unique “record” that every record he has released, has achieved GOLD, PLATINUM or DOUBLE PLATINUM status in both Australia and New Zealand.

LUCKY STARR is an Australian pioneer rock and roll, pop and country music singer, guitarist and television presenter. His most popular single, “I’ve Been Everywhere”, appeared in early 1962 and peaked at number one. During the late 1960s Lucky performed as a country musician taking his travelling show around the Australian Bush. He was inducted into the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame.

DIGGER REVELL was credited with pioneering Australian Rock ’n’ Roll in Australia. He has performed with some of the greats, including Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell and Johnny O’Keefe. He is still performing to this day.

This wonderful review of memories from those days is the “cream of the crop” who have survived over 70 years of continuous performing and who, between them, have recorded dozens of hits which they will perform as only each performer can, taking every member of the audience back in time to where it all started.
