Bob Cole, Chas Whitling, John Mitchell and Lyall Barron provide all live vocals, guitars and piano and are backed by the highest quality live-recorded bass and drum backing. Rock and roll dancers have flocked to our shows from Brisbane to Bundaberg since 2017. They also play most of the major retro-styled festivals across SE and central Qld. The three boys have been in and around the entertainment game for well over 30 years and feel they have a pretty good handle on what people want when it comes to this style of dance music.

The Rock n Roll Boys have averaged around 60 gigs per year since 2017 including the Gympie Music Muster, Caloundra Beachfest and Waterhole Rocks as well as many smaller festivals and club shows. 

Equally at home playing in small or large venues we are excited to welcome them to Helltown Hotrods and look forward to them being part of the entertainment moving forward. Bob, Chas, John and Lyall look forward to seeing you on the dance floor soon.
