For two big jumpin’, jivin’ June nights during Cooly Rocks On, the famous Twin Towns Showroom will be transformed into a dance hall, with a giant 10 x 14 metre dancefloor and two of Australia’s hottest rock’n’roll bands.
Twin Towns Rocks On with Itchy Fingers and Atomic Hi-Tones, who’ll play from a song list that’s loaded up with music that will keep your feet firmly planted on the dancefloor.
The bands will perform back-to-back three-hour sets of ‘50s, ‘60s rock’n’roll, rockabilly, R&B and everything in between on Friday 8 June and Saturday 9 June from 6pm to 12.30am.
Melbourne-based Atomic Hi-Tones is one of the most in demand bands in Australia. Their high-octane performances are a favourite with the rodders, and their music was featured on popular TV hot rod show, Rodders Life. They’ve also played many times for the Northern Suburbs Hot Rod Clubs, the Victorian Hot Rod Show and did three tours to the famous Beach Hop at Whangamata in New Zealand.
The band currently comprises Cliff Jolly (Cliffy) on lead vocals, Harry Longworth on lead guitar, Jake Schembri on slap bass and Rob O’Toole on drums.
The sweet tone of Grestch Guitars and the powerful thump of a double bass may be the signature of many rockabilly bands, but in the hands of the Atomic Hi-Tones, the genre steps out of the dance hall and into the engine room.
Another festival and hot rod show favourite, Itchy Fingers, brings their own brand of rock’n’roll and rockabilly to Twin Towns.
Hailing from the heart of Melbourne, this lively four-piece band features Domenic Raso on lead guitar and vocals, Rob Monea on rhythm guitar and harp, Steve Virgona on bass and Emmanuel Cuschieri on drums.
Often referred to as a band that plays ‘rock’n’roll music with attitude’, Itchy Fingers blend rockabilly, rock’n’roll and blues
into a night-long feast of the best of the 50s and 60s.
