45RPM Townsville Rock ‘N’ Roll band 45RPM prides itself on being the only band to deliver an 'authentic Rock ‘N’ Roll experience', which offers its audience a taste of the 50’s and 60’s. “We play a treasure trove of songs that have gone unappreciated for much too long and when you have a dance floor packed with people hand-in-hand dancing together, it's such a fantastic sight even for those watching,” says band member Ross Jorgensen. In their first year of inception, the band performed more than 50 gigs and learned in that 12 months how much they loved music, and just how much their fans did too. Their audience is given quite an experience, with the band members dressing in period-style matching uniforms and recreating the most popular sounds from those eras. The 4-piece band consists of members, born and bred in North Queensland with more than 20 years experience each who love performing; whether it’s at a large-scale event or at a birthday party, this gang just loves to play. They often play as a 5-piece with vocals from Michelle Plozza who adds additional depth to their sound. “Making music is about the memories and emotion, put it all together and you have a night to remember with 45RPM, not a night you would rather forget,” says Ross.
