The February 24 entertainment line-up features
A splash of garage, a hint of surf, a measure of psych and a dash of blues, Rosa Maria create a cocktail of rock ‘n’ roll that is uniquely their own. With an insatiable lust to entertain, this is one of the best live bands around.
Better Off Ted:
Rising from the ashes of psychobilly sensations Zombie Ghost Train, Better Off Ted delivers the same party-in-a-graveyard vibe but with a Teddy Boy twist.
Hank’s Jalopy Demons:
With their expert renditions of unadulterated rockabilly, late 1950s garage, rock ‘n’ roll and hillbilly, the Jalopy Demons have been shaking up Melbourne since 1996 – just try and keep your feet still!
Expect an electrifying performance from this energetic rockabilly king who works the ivories just like ol’ Jerry Lee and can sing with the best of them too.
D Js Limpin’ Jimmy & the Swingin’ Kitten, Natalie de Silver, Rod Almighty and The Crimplenes Plus MC Limpin’ Jimmy.
