NIGHTMOVES is a four piece combo that specialises in presenting genuine 50s ROCK N ROLL dance beat music; the music genre that began when the soundtrack of BLACKBOARD JUNGLE, featuring the reverberating beat of BILL HALEY'S "ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK" hit the airwaves. And the Band, with the pumping rhythm of the Slap Bass, Fender Strat and Gibson guitars, all held together by the pulsating back-beat of the Slingerland Radio King drums, are ensuring that that beat is still resonating! Nightmoves is a compilation of four exceptionally fine musicians, each of whom have experienced this 50's rock n roll phenomena, either, as is in one case, first hand, or during one of its many revivals. The aim of the Band is to provide dance beat Rock n Roll music for people who like to dance; to provide good music for people who like to listen; and to provide a visual experience for people who like to watch. Nightmoves presents with its own digital sound and lighting systems, provides a valid ABN with invoice and holds a current $20 million Public Liability insurance cover. 

NIGHTMOVES has been performing at clubs on the mid-north coast of NSW to an increasing number of dedicated followers, which include many expert rock n roll dancers, along with an audience who just want to watch and listen to the spectacle that is presented in harmony by the Band and the Dancers. 

A four hour show generally consist of four 45 minute brackets with the focus on good dance beat rock n roll music but not forgetting the general club patrons who also may like to wax the floor. Appropriate taped background music is played during the band breaks. 

The Band management has developed a growing number of cyber followers via Facebook and Email, which enables it to promote each booking both before, as a promo poster, and afterwards as a review of the performance, complete with happy snaps of the show, but particularly focusing on the dancers and general club patrons

UPDATE:

  Much has been written and spoken of the NIGHTMOVES band's performance at the recent RETROFEST festival at Port Macquarie Panthers. Scheduled to appear at 11.00am on a Saturday morning as a fill-in between events in the large auditorium, the band surprised everyone, including itself, by having a virtual "full house" of dancers and onlookers and as a result were pleasantly forced to play an extra 25 minutes. The three day festival was an outstanding success and much has been attributed to the sensational musical opening by the band, NIGHTMOVES. 

Nightmoves were featured at the 2016 Port Macquarie Beatle Festival Funday Sunday at the Plaza Car park where they presented their own arrangements of Rock n Roll Classics, along with some special danceable Beatle songs. Some examples  can be viewed on the Nightmoves Facebook page, which includes the NBN Evening News segment.

2017 UPDATE.

The 2017 year has proven to be a vintage year for the Band. A return engagement at the 2017  Port Macquarie Beatlefest, saw the band perform to an enthusiastic audience who, despite the 40 degree temperature of the day, could not resist dancing to the infectious beat of the adapted Beatles music. The following month Nightmoves made their debut appearance at the highly regarded Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival, the result of their performance being that they were immediately engaged for the 2018 festival.

However the big one for the year was being featured most prominantly at the 2017 Cooly Rocks On  Nostalgia Festival on the Gold Coast on the June Queen's Birthday weekend. Their appearance on the Street Parade to an estimated 20,000 people who lined along the streets of Coolangatta, was described as sensational, attracting the cameras from just about everyone in attendance, including local TV stations. In the aftermath of the Festival, Nightmoves was named and photographed as being one of the highlights of the weekend.

Closer to home, their appearance at the Forster Keys Family Fun Day was the talking point of just about everyone of 15,000 who attended.

The band continues to treat club audiences along the north coast of NSW from Belmont to Coff's Harbour and point in between, with no let up in presenting their own new special arrangements of songs from as way back as the 20s right up to the 60s, with a couple of more modern arrangements from the 80's thrown into the melting pot. This includes a rockabilly adaption of Smoke on the Water, which has puzzled and thrilled audiences whenever it is performed.
