Hucklebuck back on the dancefloor in Oylegate

The showband days were revived in Oylegate with an invitation to come to the hall for a night of the hucklebuck.

The spirit of the dance craze made popular by Brendan Bowyer in the sixties was re-created in the community centre.Local musician Jonathan Hanlon was the man behind the move, complete with a shake like a snake and a waddle like a duck.

Instead of the Royal Showband, he had his Jive Tones on stage for a night of old time, poppy rock 'n roll.
