Hollywood Hotel was actually a perfect venue for this. Though it has a rather awkward dance floor, the place was filled with folks dancing around the small pub in Surry Hills.
Owned by former TV and Movie star of the 1950s, Doris Goddard, Hollywood Hotel seemed an appropriate setting for our Rock N Roll and Soul night. At the last one, Ms Goddard sat at the end of the bar for the early part of the night. Her only complaint, that we were a little loud. High praises from a woman who has been known to pull the power on DJs she disapproves of.
So we are doing another one of these before Sonny and Emma leave to Europe. Expect good music, lots of dancing, attractive hipster girls in rockabilly attire, and I promise Sonny won’t be doing any inappropriate scratching.
