Organiser local Nick McGrath with Teana from Helltown Hotrods are looking forward to the Rainbow Beach Hotrod and Rockabilly Rumble

On Sunday, April 30 during the Labour Day long weekend, experience the first Rainbow Beach Hotrod and Rockabilly Rumble.

Visitors will be treated to a spectacle of hotrods, classic cars and custom motorcycles from all over the world.

Organiser Nick McGrath says that most people don’t realise it, but our region is a minefield of real talent.

“There are four in the region who build custom cars and hotrods – real talent exists here,” enthuses Nick.

Adam from Helltown Hotrods, Gympie, is a specialist of hotrod, custom builds and auto-fabrication and he will be bringing his display.

Local Kylie Betteridge (says Nick, “She’s an artist, man”) offers a pop-up Hair Do Salon and it will be retro all the way. So ask for your beehive!

And there’s rockabilly clothing, badges, food and beverages, a ‘kick ass’ tattooist’s display and best of all, two bands playing all day!

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Boys and The Heymakers will bring the vibes for Sue Steward and her Gold Dust Rockers “old school” rock ‘n’ roll dance display.

Teaching rock ‘n’ roll, swing and partner dancing in Gympie and the Sunshine Coast for the past 14 years, you’ll be sure to pick up some tips!

The event will be held in the Sports Club car park from 11am onwards, BYO chairs, adults $5 and under 16s are free.

There will be judging from 2pm and prizes and trophies to follow.

To keep the party going, Coltseavers rockabilly band will be playing inside the club from 8pm until late.

Says Nick, “I hope to see many faces there for lots of rock ‘n’ retro fun!” Find out more, call Nick on 0401 736 129.
