Melbourne Fancy Dress – Rock Around the Clock!

What a great night of ‘diner’ food and rock and roll music!!
If you weren’t at the Box Hill hall on Saturday night you probably had a very dull evening. If you were there then you know exactly how much fun, food and dancing was enjoyed by the mass that gathered in the hall. The evening was dotted with a delicious array of traditional diner food starting with the roaming entree of fried chicken with Clive’s 11 secret herbs and spices (much better than that Kentucky Fried fellow); a main of hot dogs with home made coleslaw and fries, finished off with a crowd favourite…. banana splits!! In true RCI fashion no food remained at the end of the night and the quality was unsurpassed!
Not only was the food great but the entertainment rivalled that of the Battle of the Bands… The Sonettes aka Hannah, Michelle and Amber- Rose sang 50’s & 60’s era power ballads and ‘poppy’ songs like ‘Cherry’ and ‘Be My Baby’ which the crowd swayed along to.
A great highlight of the night was Saxon aka ‘Little Sax’ with his hip swinging Elvis Presley covers! The voice.. the moves.. the songs… sorry ladies, he’s a taken man! Kaitlyn, the 21ster, Stewart had the crowd eating out of her hand with her cover of the love song Blue Moon. All in all the entertainment was fantastic and we can’t thank the performers enough for their efforts.
Once the food had settled Hilary brought out her dancing shoes and attempted to teach those who were willing how to jive.. some people managed the basic steps while others only became more confused as more steps were added. Not only the young people enjoyed the jive, but there were some more mature attendees who showed a clean pair of heels! It was a sight to behold.
Once again this was a great night of fun and fellowship and an annual event that should always be put in the diary as one not to miss. Thanks to everyone who helped make the night a memorable one!! See you there next year!!
