Picture of the day: Rock ’n’ roll is here to stay
Hundreds of Americana enthusiasts descended on an authentic 1950s holiday camp for the biannual Hemsby Rock ’n’ Roll Weekend.
The period festival reliving the spirit of the 1940s and 50s US music scene attracted scores of men in leather jackets and manicured quiffs, and women sporting ankle socks and ponytails, to Seacroft Holiday Camp in the village of Hemsby.
The four-day festival, now in its 25th year, saw a line-up of live bands and artists, including veteran rockers Freddie Cannon and Bobby Hendricks, playing as revellers lindy-hopped, bopped and jived across the dancefloors.
A hotly anticipated performance by Marshall Lytle & The Shooting Stars was cancelled at short notice after Mr Lytle, 79, revealed he had been diagnosed with cancer last month.
His replacement was the legendary tenor saxophonist and singer Jimmy Cavallo, best known for performing with his band in the 1956 film Rock, Rock, Rock and becoming the first all-white band to play at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York.
