Rockin’ Marc Rondeau

Rockin Marc Rondeau

At the age of ten, Rockin’ Marc Rondeau discovered 1950s ROCK AND ROLL – namely, his mother’s copy of Elvis doing “A Big Hunk of Love” – and he played it until the record was literally worn out. Since that day, he has surrounded himself with 1950s music and a 1950s lifestyle that to some might be seen as odd or, at the very least, eccentric. The thing is, for him this is normal – it’s everyone else who is weird. With more than 30 years of collecting and listening to 1950s music he knows his stuff.
When an opportunity came up to start a club in 1991 he jumped at it. Fast forward to today – he has had a radio show on regional radio, put a fanzine out to over a thousand subscribers, played most of the rockin’ music festivals in Australia, the two biggest rockin festivals in the world, Viva Las Vegas (USA) and The Rockabilly Rave(UK), and has DJed at most clubs around Sydney. Being a big fan of vinyl, 45s and LPs are the usual format he uses, but he is hep with technology and will play CDJ if there is no alternative. So if you like Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, jump rhythm and blues, surf, doo wop, Western swing, cool swingin jazz or any other 1950s music style then you will probably get a kick out of listening to him on the wheels of steel at a venue near you

Marc worked closely with the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney to help them curate the Rockabilly component of their “Remembering the 80s” exhibition. As well as lending clothes, records and memorabilia for the exhibit and donating an outfit for their permanent collection, he was also interviewed for their website.
