Commemorative ball repeated 60 years on

Sixty years ago a ball was held in Caloundra attended by then Governor Sir Leslie Wilson to celebrate the successful protection of our north coast from the Japanese with the help of our American allies.  To remember this great celebration the Sunshine Coast Concert Band are hosting a ball to be attended by Queensland Governor, Quentin Bryce, on Saturday August, 20 at the Indoor Stadium in Caloundra.

The ball promises to be the best event of its kind ever to be hosted on the Coast and musical director, Ken Chadwick and his 40-piece dance band will be accompanied by singers including Alan Winter, TJ's Elvis and our local stars, the Andrew Sisters.   The dance programme will include the fox trot, barn dance, modern waltz, Pride of Erin, evening 3-step, jazz, swing and classic Glenn Miller music.

"Our dances are always incredibly popular and the sixty years of history will make this dance even more special," Ken Chadwick said.

"People on the coast don't have many opportunities to put their dancing shoes on and by providing the music and venue we have no doubt it will be well supported and everyone will have a great time."

The Indoor Stadium in North Street has a sprung floor making it ideal for dancing the night away and the venue will be decorated in a 1940's theme to celebrate the occasion. 

Tickets are $40 each which includes hot and cold finger foods, BYO drinks and are available in Caloundra from Angus and Robertson (22a Bulcock St) and Rolling Surf Resort Tel: 54919 777.
