60s British Rock Invasion (fringe)

If you like 60s music then please read on

Excellent venue – excellent music… should be an excellent night.
Hosted at the Regal Theatre, this event will be a blast for anyone who loves the 60s and the Brit Pop it spored. The venue used to be the old Chelsea - but now it’s an entertainment centre that combines music and visual cinema, set within in a lovely 'Art Deco style', with ample space and a dance hall.

FOR YOUR LOVE – THE 60’5 BRITISH ROCK INVASION is an unforgettable multi-media journey through the music of the 1960’s, with the visuals of the original artists up on the screen while a great 9 piece cover band performs the music live on stage.

What kind of music will be playing? Well of course The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, but also other English bands including the mod style of The Kinks, The Animals (house of the rising sun), The Troggs (wild thing) and The Zombies, as well as The Hollies, Manfred Mann, Dusty Springfield, The Who and The Yardbirds.

If you have never heard of these groups check then out on youtube. You might not know the group but you will know the songs.

Book tickets at Fringe TIX ($23). The music starts at 9pm, but I have scheduled this event for 7pm so we can have some food on Kensington Road before we hit the dance floor.

    Hey everyone. Thanks for a great night and for making my task as event host (my first time in the job) oh so easy and fun - everyone seemed to have a really good time, and who can blame them with great music, food and company. The 60s brings the best out of us all..... Big thank to you Sharleen for buying me a drink, much appreciated; you really didn’t need to (and for flying the England flag)…. Thanks to all the beautiful and talented ladies and gentlemen who welcomed this suited-man onto the dance fall for the second half of the evening. Wendy, Sue, Hillary – great work, and Inez good to see you at one of your first meetup’s hit the dance floor running! Groovy daddy-o….. groovy all

  • Mark

    Hello all - tonight’s the night. Those for dinner, meet at the restaurant at 6pm. I should be there a few minutes earlier. For those who don’t know me I will either be wearing a suit (as usual) or an England white top (I know it’s not very 60s sorry).... I will be at the front entrance of the Regal by 8pm for those not coming to dinner. In order to keep in contact I will post any messages as to where we are on this message board. I have set my phone to automatically send me a "bell" when a new message is posted on this board.

    March 2, 2013

  • Tammie

    Mark would we be able to have a contact number, to make it easier to find each other?

    March 2, 2013

    • Mark

      Hi Tammie - if you are connected to the internet via your phone, post a message on this board (or I will) and we can meetup / contact each other that way. Might be the easiest, that way everyone who is attending will know whats going on etc. My phone will automatically send me a "bell" when a new message is posted on this board.

  • Lizzie N.

    Hi Mark, I won't be able to get to the restaurant until 7:30pm; so save a seat, it will be great to meet everyone, perhaps have a drink before heading to the show - hope that is ok; if causes problems i can just meet at show? Cheers Lizzie

    WHOOOO.... there's 14 for dinner and a total of 28 for the event. I think this should be a fun night. Is anyone dressing up?

    March 1, 2013

  • Tammie

    Mark, does the music start at 8pm or 9pm, you have commented dancing at 8pm?

    February 28, 2013

    • Mark

      There are dance lessons for those who want it (with music) from 8 to 9 at the Regal and then the band itself comes on at 9pm (finishes I think at 11pm, followed by a 60s music dj until midnight)

      yes I'm comming, also it is only good manners to let the hoste know it you are no longer able to go, we had 11 people say they wanted to come for dinner sat at the Cathedral Hotel and 6 came, don't want 'meet up' to get a bad name for over booking seats, word gets out and on busy nights 'we' may not always be able to book!

      February 25, 2013

  • Karen H

    Hi Mark, I've got my ticket. I'll meet you at 8 as I can't make dinner. Cheers and thank so much for organising this event.

    Hi Mark, sorry to be a pain, can you take me off dinner booking, my agent has sprung an early open inspection on my house sun am, need to do lots of cleaning sat arvo, oh joy! So will meet you at the show, save me a seat. Will aim to get there around 8pm, looking forward to it :)

    are people are getting the tickets b4 the event or at the door?

    February 24, 2013

    • Mark

      I think most are getting tickets before hand. They tell me it gets sold out so it might be best to book a ticket prior.

  • Mark

    Hi all - It looks like we are going to have a good turnout for this event. I've just updated our dinner booking for 16. I am hoping to get two tables next to each other or something similar so we can all chat and get to know one another before the dancing begins. Remember there's a prize for the most 60's dressed person...... this is going to be fun

    Hi all – I’ve booked the Spice Kitchen (called the restaurant part is called HaBa) for Sat 2nd at 6pm. I have booked for 12, let me know if you want to meet for dinner but have not said "yes" yet. Otherwise, we will meet the rest of the group outside the Regal at 8pm. There's a free dance lesson class from 8-9 and then the band comes on at 9pm.

    For those who don’t know where the Spice Kitchen is, it’s on the opposite side of the Regal at 252 Kensington Road. The menu can be accessed through their web site http://www.spicekitchen.com.au

    Hello all - the Spice Kitchen restaurant opposite the Regal (Old Chelsea) has an early dinner special for around $15.00 (thanks Wendy). I will book a table for Saturday night at 6pm, but I will need to know NUMBERS... Can you reply to this conversation link and let me know if you are interested in dinner at the Spice Kitchen. Those who have not replied I will assume are not interested in dinner and we can meet you at 8pm outside the Theatre itself.
