Post by Holger Laux » Tue 22 Aug, 2017 9:56 am

I am sure you saw this under "Announcements" already: Yes, preparations for our Rock'n'Roll Party are well under way and everyone is getting very excited!

It will be a night not to be missed, so make sure you book your tickets early: holger@99computing.co.uk, 07740191772

More info about the music, the fashion, the dancing etc. to follow soon.

And, of course, you are welcome to join the forum discussion and comment. This is what the Dundry Forum is all about.

The Music

"So you are going to play a lot of Elvis, then?"

Well, yes, we will hear some Elvis, but Rock'n'Roll is much more than that.

Here is a little quiz for you: Can you put names to these faces?

It is literally the music that will never die. Just consider the following stars and styles:
  • 1940s Big Joe Turner (Jump Jive)
  • 1950s Johnny Burnette (Rockabilly)
  • 1960s Dion and the Belmonts (Doo Wop)
  • 1970s Matchbox (British Revival)
  • 1980s Stray Cats (Neorockabilly)
  • 1990s Sonny Burgess (new recordings of an old Sun artist)
  • 2000s Si Cranstoun (the accidental Rock'n'Roller)
  • 2010s Imelda May (the Irish rockin' gal)
And there are many more, much less known bands and artists making great music.

If you want to know more, why not listen to Geoff Barker's Saturday Night Rock'n'Roll Party? You can get it live on Radio Bristol every Saturday 6-8pm or on Listen again here:

We will of course put our Dundry event on his Gig Guide closer to the time.


And finally, if you want to have a sneak preview of the band playing for us on 18th November, you can listen to some samples on their Web site:

Keep on Rockin'
