Acclaimed performer Rodney Vincent brings his high-energy Good Times Rock ‘n’ Roll Show to Rainbow Beach on April 1 – and all for Kids Bush to the Beach
The Rainbow Beach events group and Tin Can Bay Lions have been busy finalising the fundraiser event set down for April 1 at our own Community Hall.
The star attraction for the evening will be Rodney Vincent with his high-energy Good Times Rock ‘n’ Roll Show. This will involve a variety of country, comedy, storytelling and rock ‘n’ roll.
Awarded ‘Victorian Entertainer of the Year’ in 2006, and ‘Album of the Year’ in 2007, Rodney has also been honoured with induction into the South Australian Hall of Fame, along with many other awards.
Rodney has performed on live television and at major venues in Australia, including QPAC Brisbane, Burswood Casino Perth, Wrest Point and Crown Casino, the Gold Coast and Twin Towns.
With a packed calendar all year round, both here and overseas, he needs to be booked 12 months in advance.
Rodney also went on five Australian tours with the late rock ‘n’ roll legend Gene Pitney, and they recorded two songs together.
Other artists Rodney has performed with include The Delltones, Col Elliott, The Four Kinsmen, and Freddie & the Dreamers, to name a few. The evening will include tributes to Johnny O’Keefe and Gene Pitney.
The night will kick off at 6.30pm with drinks, followed by a two-course meal. Silent and live auctions will take place during the night, with some wonderful gifts. You can also be in the running for a lucky door prize.
