The year is proving to be a huge one for the Manning-Great Lakes retro band, Nightmoves.
Out of hundreds of bands, Nightmoves has been selected for "Cooly Rocks On" Rock n Roll and Nostalgia Festival at Coolangatta on the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June. This festival is regarded as Australia's largest rock n roll and nostalgia festival and a signature event on the Queensland and Australian event calendar.
Last weekend, the band was featured at the Port Macquarie Beatles Festival on one of the hottest days on record, where they presented a mixture of danceable Beatle songs combined with their arrangements of 50s rock n roll music.
Social media feedback said the infectious beat of the Nightmoves Band literally forced the large number of dancers, who braved the weather, to forget the heat and all those their niggling injuries to leave their seats and get on the dance floor.
A debut appearance at the equally prestigious Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival is scheduled for the Nightmoves in late March.
