Looking to May.

Hey guys n gals. Great news… The recording is done and we are just weeks away from our new CD hitting the airwaves. Once we have them in our hot little hands, we’ll be distributing to local and national DJ’s for the first run to get initial feedback, and hopefully we’ll get a few interviews along the way and then by June we’ll be hot to trot to start selling.

Meantime, May see’s us making a debut appearance at The Garterbelts and Gasoline nostalgia festival in Queensland. Once again we’re playing with some brilliant acts, namely Wes Pudsey and The Sonic Aces, and Little Mac and The Monster Men. It’s so cool to be able to line up with quality acts like these guys, and It still blows us away to be considered for these events! Being a part of the opening night and helping set the tone for the weekend is very exciting. Can’t wait!!

Stay tuned for more Lincolns updates soon.

Big month ahead

This is it… tomorrow is the beginning of our studio time!! After a huge weekend at West Lakes, we’re hitting the studio to record our new album “Teddy Boy Rock n Roll”. Feedback from the weekend gig where we performed the entire CD live was very promising. Hopefully the CD will live up to expectations!

The next month we’ll be flat out organising the printing of the CD, artwork etc, and then it’s off to QLD in May for the Garterbelt and Gasoline Festival. Yes… we are excited. Looking forward to seeing you guys on the dance floor at our next gig!

Bopping into 2014

Well we’re back from Ballarat, but I’ll talk more on that later. First up, I must mention the killer show we were invited to play at The Port Dock Brewery with The Wanderers Car Club on Jan 25th. Charlie went to a lot of trouble to put on a great event, Featuring us, Lady Voodoo, Lucky Seven and CC Jerome. Over 400 people packed in to the joint and it was pumping all night long. Well done Charlie, you don’t do half bad for a wannabe promoter!

The last couple of weeks practice have been spent finalising a few new originals and we pumped 3 of them out at Ballarat to get an idea on what the dancers thought of them. Overwhelmed with the response we got to them actually. We’re not playing them here in SA until March 29th, then into the studio to get them down on CD and out for sale ASAP.

Speaking of March 29th. The event is selling very well, so if you want your tickets, please get online and get your tickets soon or you may miss out. Three great bands and the coolest DJ in town for just $15. Can’t go wrong! Other gigs for March include the Mannum Hot Rod Show on the 9th, another interstate venture to Cobram on the 16th, and then we’re playing March 22 at Holdfast Shores Bowling Club for their fundraiser, but March 29 is where it’s at. New songs, plus TJ and The Twinspinners, The Switchblades and DJ Midnight Rocker.

OK… Ballarat. Not only is it a very cool place to be (food is awesome and well priced), the event itself was off the planet! Acts from all over the world, plus some of the best Australia has to offer congregated on the town for one weekend and put on a festival to rival anything anywhere. Pin ups, Hot Rods, cool cats and kittens, great dancers, people from all corners of the country came together and had a ball. Arthur and the team know how to deliver, and they delivered… yet again!

In fact… Arthur and his team are setting the standard when it comes to these festivals, so if you’re not doing it already, start thinking about Camperdown this October, and then Ballarat next Feb. The Lincolns may not be there next time as rotation is a must to keep things fresh for the punters, but regardless, the festival will rock your socks off!

We played 4 gigs while we were there, and they were all killer shows! Our final day performance in Sebastiaan’s cafe was one of the better shows I’ve personally ever been involved in… certainly as far as feel good shows are concerned, but take nothing away form the other 3 we did. They were all amazing, and the response to our brand of Rock n Roll was absolutely knock out.

As I said, the new ones are just about ready for launching here in SA, so if you’re keen to get along for a listen, please come along on March 29th and get your dancing shoes shined up and ready to bop the night away.

Take care folks and we’ll be speaking soon.

PS: If you want details of the March 29 gig, or if you don’t like buying online, please contact us via email – lincolnsadelaide@gmail.com and we will get something arranged for you.

Lee Lincoln.

Don’t Stop The Bop!

Huge night of dancing with The Lincolns plus TJ & The Twinspinners and The Switchblades with DJ Midnight Rocker. Great entertainment package from start to finish. The Lincolns will be performing a heap of yet to be heard songs, including the 14 which will be on their CD to be recorded in early April. TJ and the gang will be heading back down South to show us again what we’ve been missing out on for the past few years, and The Switchblades will be bringing their own brand of good rocking energy and style to the joint in the way only they can. Glue it all together with the one and only DJ Midnight Rocker, and you have the makings of a great night.

This event is fully seated, so table bookings are not required. A ticket buys you a seat which you can select when you arrive. Sausage Sizzle provided through the night (weather permitting with outside BBQ’s). BYO Basket Supper!

Wanderers Car Club, Christmas Show, and more!

The good guys and gals at Wanderers Car club have done it again. They are putting together a great show on January 25th in Port Adelaide at The Port Dock Brewery. International sensation CC Jerome is heading the bill, but is proudly (and more than capably) supported by local swing legends Lucky Seven, The amazing Lady Voodoo, and The Lincolns. There is also Burlesque Dancing and DJ Jess will be doing his thang (yep… thang!!) to keep the place a rocking in between.

Todd street will be closed off so the Wanderers can show off their awesome automobiles from earlier in the day, and the music and entertainment will be kicking off later in the evening. Check it out people… Australia day weekend, Jan 25th, tickets are only $20 and can be bought online right here http://thewandererscarclub.weebly.com/store/p10/Wanderers_Australia_Day_Rockabilly_and_Rock%27n%27Roll_Dance_Party_Tickets.html

As previously mentioned, our Christmas show with TJ and The Twinspinners and The Midnight Rocker, has been sold out for quite some time. We’ve had to turn many people away, but surprisingly we have just found out that even more people have been phoning the venue direct to try and get tickets, so it seems a lot of people have missed out and are very disappointed. It seems they didn’t hear about the show in time.

There are two places where all our shows will be advertised… One is right here, but the first place will always be our facebook page. If you know people that might be interested in keeping up to date with future shows, please direct them either to this site, or to our face book page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Lincolns-Adelaide/179205488782999 You can click a button to follow this website so you are updated by email whenever we post info here, or you can like our Facebook page to get updates through social media.

All future ticketing for our shows will be handled externally as it’s just too hard to do in house. A link will be put up on FB and on this site where tickets can be bought online using credit cards etc, and you can print them yourself at home. A much easier option if you ask me. We will also ensure that at a venue where we sell 200 tickets, there will be 200 seats available so there is no need to book a table as you are guaranteed a seat. We’re just trying to streamline things. We never thought that we would ever be in a position where we are getting so many people interested in our shows that we are finding it difficult to handle in house. Rest assured though, we love you for it. Thank you!

 

 

Christmas Show, Ballarat and more!

Hey guys n gals… our Christmas show with TJ & The Twinspinners is well and truly sold out. I believe one or two people might still be advertising it, but if you don’t already have a ticket you will not be able to get in. Don’t worry though… word is we might just do it again in March!

Well we’ve been confirmed for the Ballarat beat in Feb! Very excited about this one. Thanks Arthur for giving us another crack at one your very cool events. Camperdown was a huge success and, we expect Ballarat to be more of the same. We’ve also been added to the list of entertainers at next years Garterbelts and Gasoline show in QLD during the first weekend of May. Because of these new interstate shows, more cd’s are being printed as we speak due to our last lot of 500 being almost gone. Thank you so much to all of you who purchased one.

Speaking of CD’s… our next CD recording session has been booked in a much bigger studio. April 2014 will see us back in the control room putting together the new album, with loads of vintage gear at our disposal to help capture the feel of the era. We’re very excited about this too, and can’t wait to bring you guys the finished product. We’re expecting much bigger things of ourselves this time, and we aim not to disappoint.

Camperdown and The run to Christmas

Wow… just got back from Camperdown where we were fortunate enough to play with some of the cream of Australian Rock n Roll / Rockabilly bands. What an amazing weekend. If you haven’t been before, lock it in for next year, or get along to The Ballarat Beat in Feb 2014 for another great rocking festival… you won’t regret it.

We had one of our best shows on Sunday at The Clock Tower with a couple of hundred folk crammed on to the street / dance floor. Sold out of all of our CD’s in 30 minutes (All that we took anyway… 70+) and got an amazing reception and huge cheer when we’d finished. Hmmm… Maybe it was because we’d finished lol. Either way, we are very excited about the way the whole weekend went. A very well organised and super cool event.

Some very cool gigs coming up to finish the year off… check our upcoming gigs page for locations and our facebook page for full details.

We have new songs being added to the list all the time and we are planning to record our next CD early next year. Our new CD is going to rock the socks off the last one. Watch this space for details.

Over and out!

Victor, Semaphore, Camperdown… and much more!

Where to begin… What an awesome few weeks we’ve just had. Our heads are still spinning. Victor Harbor was a blast. We kicked off our participation earlier than expected due to one band pulling out, so we stepped in to provide backing for local rock n roll icon TJ. The Saturday morning show went off with the crowds loving every minute of it, and a nice full dance floor was the proof in the pudding.

Saturday night at the local school was a sell out and was a lot of fun. We had the dancers dancing the night away as did DJ Midnight Rocker, who is the master on the decks when it comes to rockabilly / rock n roll. Then Sunday afternoon on the main stage was quite simply electric. We came off buzzing with the atmosphere, which was so charged that my hair was standing on end. Oh wait a minute… it’s usually standing on end, but that’s due to pomade and hair spray lol. It was a great weekend of rock n roll and we were once again thrilled and privileged to be a part of it.

We even got our first hit out at Adelaide Rock n Roll clubs on the Tuesday night “Club Night” and couldn’t believe our eyes to see so many people there. It was packed! Surely not… after a huge weekend at Victor Harbor, the crowds were still there bopping away. You guys are great. We are so lucky to have such awesome crowds at our shows and believe me when I say we love you guys for it.

Then… just when you think you’ve seen it all, we get a massive response at The Semaphore Music Festival. A huge turn out to see some great bands, but to see so many of you dancing to our music once more was out of this world. Proud to be part of such a great day amongst such talent. Somebody is seriously going to have to pinch me so I know it’s really happening!

We have a couple of shows coming up before we finally head off to Camperdown for our first hit out there with the big guns. This coming weekend (12th) we have a sell out show with Raunchy Sugar, then the next weekend (19th) we are at The Kapunda Music and Arts Festival on the main stage, Saturday night. Camperdown is our last interstate show this year, but next year we already have 6 lined up and possibly more. Fingers crossed.

No sooner do we get back from Campderdown… the following week we are playing as part of the Dia De Los Muertos Festival here in Adelaide… another huge night with local and interstate talent filling the stage (and of course the dance floor) all night long.

Don’t forget to keep a close eye on our facebook page. That is the one that updates most often, and most of our advertising for upcoming events is put there first. Our December 7th show with TJ and The Twinspinners sold out in no time at all through Facebook, so that is the place to be if you want to keep up to date with all things Lincoln.

Thanks guys. See you all soon.

Lee Lincoln.

Two weeks off!!

Well we’re taking a 2 week break from the live scene so we can recharge our batteries ready for the rest of the year. It also means we can catch up on those jobs around the house that have been on the back burner for err… far too long lol.

The Victor Harbor Festival is looming and we’re looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with a few new tracks up our sleeve. Keep rockin’ folks… see you all soon!

The Rechords are coming!! And other stuff…

August 10th from 6-30PM, you can catch The Lincolns, The Rechords, and DJ Midnight Rocker at Club West Lakes Bowling Club. Entry is just $15.00. It WILL be a great night, and one we’re really looking forward to. Check our Facebook event page for details.

It’s always an honour to share a bill with any of Australia’s top bands, and we’re lucky enough to have done it quite a few times now. Proud to say we’ve played with awesome home grown acts such as The Satellites, Lucky Seven, and The Saucermen… Interstate bands like  Atomic Hi-Tones, The Flattrakkers, Itchy Fingers, Pat Capocci, The Detonators, Sonyta and The Incinerators, and even international bands such as CC Jerome as well as The Go Getters. Adding The Rechords to that list is our pleasure and we’re extremely excited about it.

On to other stuff… We’re not long back from Echuca where we played as part of the July rock n roll festival. What a blast! It’s a great event and I highly recommend checking it out next year. The venue is great, and with shuttle buses running all night to take you to and from the venue to anywhere in the Echuca / Moama area, you can relax and have a few drinks knowing you can get homes safely. Cheers and beers to the organisers and everyone involved.

We seemed to go down very well to a superb crowd, and there’s been talk of ventures back into Victoria next year for The Lincolns, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope to see our Victorian friends again next year.

That’s all for now, but I’ll have more details regarding August / September gigs and adventures coming soon… including details on the Victor Harbor festival.

Keep rocking good people
