TUESDAY





Wow! Don't you wish you could go to this screening!

Thanks to Michael Crosby... here's the photo detail:
"Crowd leaving the City Theatre after having seen 'Rock around the Clock', a movie with Bill Haley, Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen.
Amsterdam - September 1, 1956"




BILL HALEY'S "ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK"

"One, two, three o'clock, four o'clock, rock,
Five, six, seven o'clock, eight o'clock, rock,
Nine, ten, eleven o'clock, twelve o'clock, rock,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight.

Put your glad rags on and join me, hon,
We'll have some fun when the clock strikes one,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the clock strikes two, three and four,
If the band slows down we'll yell for more,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the chimes ring five, six and seven,
We'll be right in seventh heaven.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When it's eight, nine, ten, eleven too,
I'll be goin' strong and so will you.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the clock strikes twelve, we'll cool off then,
Start a rockin' round the clock again.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight."

1950's Nite at the Rhythm Club -- Nov 22
With Neil Morrow and His Memphis '54!

Dress Up!



This in from Norman (and a hearty "I agree!"):

Hi Rusty,

Neil Morrow and Memphis 54 Thanksgiving Eve, November 22nd. In the past you have been dark on this night, and a lot of us have had to scramble for a place to go to and dance. I am glad you are having Neil back and are open that night.

How about a Holiday-Good ol Rock & Roll, 50's night. Any one of the above or combination would be nice. It would be fun to dress up accordingly, or come as your favorite 50's singer or movie star. i.e. Johnny Cash, James Dean, Buddy Holly, Elvis, Patsy Cline, etc.etc.

This idea is pretty far out, but an added benefit of promising to burn at least 300-600 calories/aerobic and or weight loss prior to the Thanksgiving feast, if everyone danced most if not all of the dances that night. As you know, Neil plays a lot of high energy songs, and sometimes plays tunes one right after another without a break.

Thanks,

Norman

If you have some ideas for theme nites, email 'em on over to me at info@rustyfrank.com.

THE VIDEO BEAT - 1950's & 1960's ROCK N ROLL MOVIES -- Since our Rhythm Club dance this week is 1950s themed, I thought some of you might enjoy browsing around this online store that sells nothing but Rock n Roll movies! Bill Haley galore! If you've never seen one of these movies, may I personally recommend "Don't Knock The Rock" and "Rock Around The Clock". Such fun!




Swing Shift
www.rustyfrank.com

* Wondering what the heck a "gate"is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast). Basically, we swing like a gate!


JOIN THE FUN!
BUT, WHAT THE HECK IS IT?

Many of you still don't know about our Swing Shift Rhythm Club. It's one of our best kept secrets. Now is the time to get the SSRC "above the radar."

THE SWING SHIFT RHYTHM CLUB (SSRC), founded in 2000 by Rusty Frank's swing dance students, The SSRC has two missions:

1. Having fun! (Fun) 2. Doing good deeds! (Philanthropy)

1. Having fun: Events where swing dancers can socialize and get to know each other outside of class (vintage clothes shopping, going to a dance-related movie, dancing in the park, eating at retro restaurants before a dance, etc.).

2. Doing good deeds: Events where we bring swing dancing to hospitals, senior homes, and community events for the purpose of good deeds, entertainment, and education in the Los Angeles area.

The SSRC is a volunteer club open to the public and the events are organized by its members. There are no dues. Members can attend as many or as few events as they wish.

"How do I join?"...
