Rock festival to help Flood Relief

COOLY Rocks On fans can dance the night away to raise money for the Queensland Flood Relief.

The organisers of the popular winter festival have put together a Flood Relief Dance Party with all profits directly benefiting the flood victims.

The event will be a miniature version of the large rock and roll festival scheduled for June 3 to 13.

Cooly Rocks On spokesperson Ian Hanson said everyone involved donated their services free of charge for the cause.

DJ Jimmy D will host the event and Gold Coast Elvis impersonator Dean Vegas is set to get the crowd “all shaken up”.

Other performers include ’60s show band The Chevrolets and rockabilly bands the Tailspinners and “Diamond” Doug Wilshire.

Mr Hanson said the performers all signed up for the event within 24 hours.

“It will be rockin’ if we get a couple of hundred people to come,” he said.

Cooly Rocks On operations manager Bob Newman said it was the least his organisation could do for the flood victims.

“We see this event as a great way for the community around Coolangatta-Tweed Heads to come together for the flood relief,” Mr Newman said.

The dance party kicks-off Sunday, January 30, at 6pm at the Tweed Heads Civic Centre and a display of classic cars and hot rods will be on display from 4pm.

Tickets are $25 at the door or from the Cooly Rocks website at www.coolyrockson.com.
