Walk along the street and you saw the gals sporting hourglass silhouettes accessorized by gloves and pearls. Bobby socks and bubble gum were everywhere; and the guys with sideburns and slicked back hair sporting the leather jacket and denim jeans… an era where black horned rim brow line glasses became a trend… an era where petrol was so cheap that it fuelled not only the hot rods on the roads but fired up a musical movement that would only be lived for a short while but would last in the hearts and souls of billions for eternity.
It is this era that will be recreated on stage. Portraying his idol, Elvis Presley, Anthony captured the hearts of Australian viewers and went on to win the competition allowing him to perform in the world famous Legends In Concert show at the Imperial Palace in fabulous Las Vegas, appearing as the youngest Elvis ever. Anthony also had the opportunity to perform in the birthplace town of Elvis Presley, Tupelo, Mississippi, at the Lyric Theatre.
Hail, hail, rock and roll … we welcome you to step back to the era that created music legends and influenced a formidable culture, paying homage to a catalogue where their songs are timeless, their hits are endless, and their flair is never forgotten. Come and take the journey back to the Class of 59! Bendigo is 90 minutes from Melbourne by car or train.

The real story of the man behind the bands – and a backstage pass to forty years of Australian rock music. Known to many as GODinski, Michael Gudinski is unquestionably the most powerful and influential figure in the Australian rock’n’roll music business – and has been for the last four decades. But his reach isn’t limited to Australian artists. A self-made multi-millionaire, Gudinski is the Australian equivalent of Richard Branson or David Geffen, but who is this tough, inspired, flamboyant and impassioned businessman who has shaped Australian popular culture?
Where did he come from, and how has he stayed relevant for so long in an industry notorious for its fickleness? Rock journalist Stuart Coupe delves into Gudinski’s life to find the answers – and in doing so gives us a backstage pass to forty years of Australian rock. Paul Kelly: The man, the music and the life in between. Stuart Coupe is an author, music commentator, independent artist publicist and radio broadcaster who has been involved with music all his life.

⚡FIVE MAN LONDON JAM ⚡
We just enjoy a cold bevy and a burger. Picking the perfect venue was the starting point to the couple achieving their dream, laid-back day. They had both their ceremony and reception at Stick and Stone in Marrickville, New South Wales — a warehouse space and the perfect blank canvas for Brodie and Joel to add personal touches and do things their way. Everything was geared towards creating a relaxed environment. They had a food truck, a cake smash, no bridesmaids or groomsmen.
Tara and Matthew moved away from tradition for their October wedding, instead embracing their own style to help craft the wedding day of their dreams.

Rock and roll has been described as a merger of country music and rhythm and blues , but, if it were that simple, it would have existed long before it burst into the national consciousness. The seeds of the music had been in place for decades, but they flowered in the mids when nourished by a volatile mix of black culture and white spending power. Black vocal groups such as the Dominoes and the Spaniels began combining gospel-style harmonies and call-and-response singing with earthy subject matter and more aggressive rhythm-and-blues rhythms.
In that sound coalesced around an image: that of a handsome white singer, Elvis Presley , who sounded like a black man. Yet his early recordings with producer Sam Phillips , guitarist Scotty Moore , and bassist Bill Black for Sun Records in Memphis were less about any one style than about a feeling. Presley was hardly the only artist who embodied this attitude, but he was clearly a catalyst in the merger of black and white culture into something far bigger and more complex than both.
For young white America, this new music was a soundtrack for rebellion, however mild. By the end of the s, Presley had been inducted into the army, Holly had died in a plane crash, and Little Richard had converted to gospel. By the mids this sophistication allowed the music greater freedom than ever before, and it fragmented into numerous styles that became known simply as rock. Rock and roll.

Quatro said the Australian shows will be “about stripping everything back to the original sounds”. It will be exciting to be raw again. Back to basics.

It’s one of those questions that there’s no answer for. It would be nice for me to tell you that the first rock’n’ roll record ever made was by Fred Bloggs, but it’s an impossible thing to do. You’re never going to get a definitive answer. So it would appear. I have spent the past few weeks in search of the first rock’n’roll record and I am more confused than ever. I have spoken to expert journalists, septuagenarian former record company bosses and, in one notable case, a British rock’n’ roll DJ so old he can clearly remember when teddy boys were forced to beat up other teddy boys because no one had invented mods yet.
Along the way, I have been ignored by Ike Turner, heard a variety of genuinely tragic tales about forgotten musical pioneers and discovered a bizarre link between the lost world of lates rhythm and blues and Stanley Kubrick’s film The Shining. Nevertheless, I am ready to admit defeat.
