GET READY to rock and roll.

Dance On will rock your socks off at the Cooly Rocks On festival with 50's and 60's rock 'n' roll.

Lead singer Colin Cooper started his career as a teenager on the legendary "Bandstand" in Sydney with Brian Henderson and other Australian well known artists including the Bee Gees, Little Patty, and Lucky Starr.

It was Colin and Pee Wee Wilson from the "Delltones" who first sang "Mr Bass Man" on TV.

Following the retirement of the legendary lady drummer, Sylvia Sheedy, the band has taken Steve Willington on board.

Affectionately known as The Captain, Steve brings a whole new meaning to a drum roll.

Peter Johnson is lead guitarist, well known for his renditions of the Shadows' instrumentals and a seasoned performer.

Peter's versatility is the key to his lengthy career.

Brent Lillie is also a multi talented professional.

He has won numerous awards for his song writing and his versatility extends to various instruments including keyboards, rhythm guitar and bass.

Dance On will be working during the week of Cooly Rocks On at Tweed Bowls Club, Twin Towns (Breezes Lounge), Kirra Sports Club and Broadbeach Bowls Club.
