Manning Road, Sydney University

Sunday, 27 July, 2014

Doors open 10.30am  

Sydney’s coolest market … massive record fair … rockin’ spacemen … dancing lessons and more!

 Part market, part music festival, part meeting place, Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market is one of Sydney’s most unique shopping experiences and a fabulous day out.

Vinyl vultures will not want to miss the July market, which features a monster Record Fair! Music fans can sift through more than 50,000 LPs and 45s covering alternative, punk, metal, rockabilly, blues, jazz, country, reggae, club, hip hop and every other genre since the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll. Presented by Revolve Records in Erskineville, it’s packed with bargains and rare gems, so don’t miss it.

Plus, you’ll find all the usual cool, colourful stalls selling quality rock ‘n’ roll, alternative and vintage clothing, jewellery, accessories, posters, cult DVDs, tikis, tattoo art, homewares, art, collectables and more. The retro hair and make-up stylists and traditional barber are always a hit, as is the fabulous dancing.

And if you’ve always wanted to give Rockabilly dancing a try, there’ll be a class for beginners between 10.30 and 11.30am. Taught by two of Australia’s leading rock ‘n’ roll dance instructors, Bruce Elder and Margie ‘The Swingin’ Kitten’, it’s just $10 per class, which includes entry to the market. No need to bring a dance partner – just plenty of energy and your best dancing shoes! Pre registration for classes is required, email Bruce at by July 24 to register.

You’ll find a café, bars, international food, a vintage and classic vehicle display, kids’ outdoor activities. This market will feature a massive entertainment line-up starring…

The OzSkas – rock ‘n’ skank your socks off in a ska, rocksteady, reggae, dub style!

Papa Pilko & the Binrats – wild blues and slick, swingin' country rock n' roll with horns.

Men into Space – direct from Brisbane, astro-themed rockabilly, roots rock 'n' roll and beyond. Dressed as astronauts complete with helmets, Men into Space might look like space cadets, but these guys are outstanding touring rockabilly and roots musicians!

Danny & the Cosmic Tremors combine an authentic 1950s rockabilly feel with an individual style and energy all of their own.

Plus DJs Rod Almighty, Wally Wally, The Crimplenes, Andy Travers and MC: Wolfman Dan.

Entry to the Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market is $5, with kids under 12 FREE.
Nowhere else in Sydney offers this much bang for your buck.

Supported by Twilight Rhythm Boys + Lucky Luke & His Shooting Stars

Like the comfortable crackle of a Wurlitzer jukebox, Wayne Hancock is the embodiment of traditional rockabilly, hillbilly boogie and swing

Wayne’s uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is what defines him: steeped in traditional but never retro; bare bones but bone shaking; hardcore but with a swing.

Wayne ‘The Train’ Hancock released his debut album ‘Thunderstorms and Neon Signs’ in 1995. His second album, ‘That’s What Daddy Wants’, was recorded in three days and gained such wide recognition that it was taken aboard the space shuttle Columbia. Hancock has continued to tour and record, releasing a further eight albums, many of which have become classics amongst music fans and musicians alike.

Authenticity and sincerity have been the cornerstones of Hancock’s writing and music since the start of his career. His refusal to compromise his vision and sell out his music has earned him a fiercely loyal following. The phrase most frequently echoed throughout his career is “Wayne Hancock is the real deal”.

Wayne ‘The Train’ Hancock is touring Australia as part of the GreazeFest Kustom Kulture Festivals, and will be performing at The Factory on Friday August 8, supported by the Twilight Rhythm Boys and Lucky Luke & His Shooting Stars.

Annual Fifties Fair at Rose Seidler House


Step back in time as Australia’s iconic 1950s home, Rose Seidler House, celebrates its roots with classic cars,

 dancing demonstrations, a fabulous fashion parade and stalls brimming with authentic 50s wares.

Put on your Sunday best and be seen at Rose Seidler House, home of the Fifties Fair.

This year, we’re proud to feature Rusty Pinto’s Shotdown from Sugartown, who will be travelling from Perth for an exclusive Sydney performance.

Shotdown from Sugartown is Perth’s rawest rockabilly and honky-tonk blues band, fronted by internationally recognised blues and rockabilly vocalist Rusty Pinto with double bassist Jay McIvor and guitarist Jon Matthews. Rusty has toured extensively across Australia and has performed in England, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Italy and the US. Shotdown from Sugartown wowed audiences at the 2013 Camperdown Cruise Rockabilly Weekender in Victoria, and they are now working on their first album.

Pat Capocci will also rock the Fifties Fair stage with their blend of western swing, jazz, country and blues. Local Sydney boy and one of Australia’s most respected practitioners of rockabilly and roots music, Pat Capocci performs regularly throughout Europe and in Australia, and has played alongside some of the most respected international artists, including Deke Dickerson, Big Sandy, Imelda May and Justin Townes Earle. Known for his energy and passion, Pat is a Fifties Fair favourite and returns in 2014 fresh from his debut gig at Viva Las Vegas in April and a European tour.

The Sydney Morning Herald’s 2013 ‘Chef of the Year’ winners, Porteńo’s Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz, will be firing up the burners again with a menu inspired by traditional Argentinian barbecues. They’ll also be cooking up some delicious options for vegetarians.

You can shop for the finest in 50s fashion, furniture and vintage wares from over 15 leading dealers, get styled by Sterling Hair, our in-house barber shop, or get pampered at the Fifties Fair hair and beauty salon.

Come dressed in your best 1950s threads and join in our fabulous fashion parade for the chance to win a prize!

Throughout the day, you can show off your jive and rock’n’roll moves in our dancing demonstrations and admire the classic cars display.

Come inside and marvel at Rose Seidler House, Sydney’s iconic 50s home, with its original furniture and fixtures, and be inspired to create your own vintage dream home.
