Lonnie Lee will kick off the 2016 Judy Henzell Sunshine Melodies Concert Series at The Events Centre, Caloundra on Wednesday 2nd March at 11am.

The legendary career of Lonnie Lee started with his first hit in 1959 that he wrote with Johnny O'Keefe. Today, with eight national number one hits to his credit, Lonnie Lee is still going strong.

Having sustained a stellar stage presence for an incredible 55 years, it's hard to wrap your mind around the fact that Lonnie Lee began recording not long after Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis…and he's outlived almost all of them.

With hits including Starlight Starbright, Yes Indeed I Do, I Found A New Love, Defenceless, Sit Around And Talk, When The Bells Stop Ringing, Sitting By The River, and Don't You Know Pretty Baby. Interestingly,

Lee's recording career has also achieved a number of notable firsts including the first Australian to have a full colour album cover; the first Australian to record a stereo album; the first Australian to have a double-sided #1 record; and, the first Australian to have a #1 song from an album. Lonnie Lee is Rockabilly's finest, offering a show unlike any other.

It's Lee's natural knack of transforming relatively staid songs into something spectacularly sexy, with throats-a-rumblin' and sharp shoulders twitchin' to the rhythm that will see your body bop and boogie.

Added extras … A complimentary morning tea is included in the ticket price and will be served from 10am.
