What's On | The Good Old Days of Rock n Roll at PACC

Performance Art Culture Cessnock (PACC)


The pioneers of the Australian rock ’n’ roll era have joined together in concert for the first time in 60 years, with new 2024 tour dates announced for The Good Old Days of Rock ’N’ Roll, including a stop at Performance Arts Culture Cessnock (PACC) on Sunday, 24 March. The Good Old Days Of Rock ’N’ Roll is an exciting and memory-riddled show presented

by Bob McKinnon.


Many talented performers and recording stars were born from television shows, including Johnny O’Keefe’s Six O’Clock Rock and Brian Henderson’s Bandstand. And now audiences can re-live all the fabulous original hits from the hitmakers themselves – Little Pattie, Digger Revell, Jade Hurley, Dinah Lee and Lucky Starr, who, between them, have recorded dozens of hits which they will perform as only each performer can, taking every member of the audience back in time to where it all started.

At just 14 years old, Little Pattie topped the charts in 1963 with her double-A-sided debut He's My Blonde Headed, Stompie Wompie, Real Gone Surfer Boy / Stompin'. Further hits included We're Gonna Have a Party Tonight, Pushin' a Good Thing Too Far and Dance Puppet Dance.

New Zealand-born superstar and Queen of the Mods Dinah Lee burst onto the scene with hits such as Don’t You Know Yockomo, Reet Petite and Do the Blue Beat. Dinah is widely acknowledged as New Zealand’s greatest musical import to Australia.

Dubbed by Johnny O’Keefe as Australia’s King of Country Rock, Jade Hurley OAM holds the unique record that every album he has released has achieved Gold, Platinum or Double Platinum status in both Australia and New Zealand.

Australian Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Lucky Starr is a pioneer singer, guitarist and television presenter. His most

popular single, I've Been Everywhere, appeared in early 1962 and peaked at number one. Digger Revell pioneered Rock ’n’ Roll in Australia. He has performed with some of the greats, including Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell and Johnny O’Keefe.
