From Abba to Elvis, Dean Martin to the Monkees – members and staff at Yirra Mia social centre celebrated with a fifties and sixties Rock and Roll Day!
Paul Duncan kicked things off by trading his day job, driving the bus at Rise, to play a washed-out rock star with a supporting band of Rise teammates.
After a delicious morning tea musician, Adam Penn, had many members dancing within 5 minutes of his first number. He was then joined by social club member, Judith Damon to belt out The Monkees – "I’m a Believer."
Judith has been performing in bands since she was 18. “I just love to entertain people. I play lead harmony vocals, flute and I’m learning piano. I was in a band with my late husband. - we were a duo.”
The team at Rise transformed the centre into a rock wonderland, filled with music memorabilia, a candy corner and an impressive photo stand, carefully crafted by Rise team member, Christle Panickar.
