The Rock-itt : August 2010
Concert -- 27th June 2010 The show began with the walk-on of the backing band, Ridgie Didge, starting with drummer John Fitz, followed by George Siedlecki who played his double bass as well as his bass guitar. Peter Elliot returned as rhythm guitarist, backing vocalist and "harpist". Musical director Brian Ridge took to his keyboard before we gave a huge welcome to Michael Back, filing in most expertly for holidaying Alan Ford. Compere, Geoff Williams joined them with the "Belrose Song" they had been building step by step. George presented "Dance the Night Away" and "Never Ending Love" and Brian sang "I Still Miss Someone", followed by "Mansion On The Hill" and "O Lonesome Me" from Peter. The set ended with Geoff's version of the oft requested "Coward of the County". Carl Sullivan led the linedancers who also included Rosalie's In Line Boots team and Barbara's Gold Star Dancers. The linedancing this concert was mainly to dance to each artist's songs. Some songs presented a challenge due to the rhythm of the particular song. Even so, the linedancers managed to dance to 70% of the songs. In the "linedance" set, Carl taught Hillbilly Rock, Hillbilly Roll as Justin Jay was going to perform the song later in the day. Carl also taught "Keep On Rollin" which was a new dance of his done to the song Rollin' With The Flow by Mark Chestnut. The dance would also go to the same song by Charlie Rich. Later in the afternoon Carl sang this song and everyone was able to dance the new dance. In Carl's performance set he also did songs to suit the dances 101, Crazy Postman and Buy Me A Rose. Later in the day the linedancers did some of the newer dances like "I Need You Now", "If I Knew Then" and "Bobbi With An I". The floor was filled for most of the show both between acts and during the performances. The first singer for the day was that delightful young lady, Amelia Richards, who made the trip to Belrose from the awards day at Macarthur. Amelia has made great progress as we have watched her journey in country music from the age of 15. Now almost 17, Amelia has been very successful winning the TSA Junior Songwriter of the year in 2010. Amelia has an engaging presence on stage, is very confident and controls her vocals Compere Geoff Williams Carl Sulliv an Amelia Richards
