The lyric from Bill Haley’s version of the song RIP it up says it all
…when the joint starts jumpin gonna have me a ball…“Rip it up”
Corporate, Clubs, Hotels …any function for that matter is a function to...RIP IT UP and have a ball!!
RIP IT UP brings the past into the present with a brand of 50’s and 60’s rock n roll with splashes of swing, that still has the capacity to compel an audience to move and groove.
These consumate musicians take the classics, inject them with their vibrancy, then blend years of experience, and extraordinary personalities to produce an experience that leaves you with that
"Womp-bomp-a-loom-op-a-womp-bam-boom!" kinda feeling.
The band takes danceable tempos from classic rock n roll and swing, then elevates the listener and dancer through
the sheer energy of the their performance that excites the senses and belts the nervous system.
It’s not surprising considering the experience each member brings to the stage.
More importantly though they simply… love what they do and they do it well.
Each member brings to the mix varied musical experiences from Command performances for the Queen to working with some of the best talent Australia has to offer, for example, James Blundell, Lisa Edwards, Col Joye & the Joy Boys, Little Patti ,John Paul young, Normie Rowe, Lucky Starr just to name a few.
All at some stage in their careers have played some of the best known venues around the state past and present for instance, Centennial Hall, the Palais, Norwood ballroom, Princeton Club, Sams Norwood, Fiesta Villa, Multiplication, Sgt. Peppers, Arkaba Top Room and nearly every pub or club you can think of and have appeared on numerous TV shows. However…
