Camperdown and The run to Christmas

Wow… just got back from Camperdown where we were fortunate enough to play with some of the cream of Australian Rock n Roll / Rockabilly bands. What an amazing weekend. If you haven’t been before, lock it in for next year, or get along to The Ballarat Beat in Feb 2014 for another great rocking festival… you won’t regret it.

We had one of our best shows on Sunday at The Clock Tower with a couple of hundred folk crammed on to the street / dance floor. Sold out of all of our CD’s in 30 minutes (All that we took anyway… 70+) and got an amazing reception and huge cheer when we’d finished. Hmmm… Maybe it was because we’d finished lol. Either way, we are very excited about the way the whole weekend went. A very well organised and super cool event.

Some very cool gigs coming up to finish the year off… check our upcoming gigs page for locations and our facebook page for full details.

We have new songs being added to the list all the time and we are planning to record our next CD early next year. Our new CD is going to rock the socks off the last one. Watch this space for details.

Over and out!

Victor, Semaphore, Camperdown… and much more!

Where to begin… What an awesome few weeks we’ve just had. Our heads are still spinning. Victor Harbor was a blast. We kicked off our participation earlier than expected due to one band pulling out, so we stepped in to provide backing for local rock n roll icon TJ. The Saturday morning show went off with the crowds loving every minute of it, and a nice full dance floor was the proof in the pudding.

Saturday night at the local school was a sell out and was a lot of fun. We had the dancers dancing the night away as did DJ Midnight Rocker, who is the master on the decks when it comes to rockabilly / rock n roll. Then Sunday afternoon on the main stage was quite simply electric. We came off buzzing with the atmosphere, which was so charged that my hair was standing on end. Oh wait a minute… it’s usually standing on end, but that’s due to pomade and hair spray lol. It was a great weekend of rock n roll and we were once again thrilled and privileged to be a part of it.

We even got our first hit out at Adelaide Rock n Roll clubs on the Tuesday night “Club Night” and couldn’t believe our eyes to see so many people there. It was packed! Surely not… after a huge weekend at Victor Harbor, the crowds were still there bopping away. You guys are great. We are so lucky to have such awesome crowds at our shows and believe me when I say we love you guys for it.

Then… just when you think you’ve seen it all, we get a massive response at The Semaphore Music Festival. A huge turn out to see some great bands, but to see so many of you dancing to our music once more was out of this world. Proud to be part of such a great day amongst such talent. Somebody is seriously going to have to pinch me so I know it’s really happening!

We have a couple of shows coming up before we finally head off to Camperdown for our first hit out there with the big guns. This coming weekend (12th) we have a sell out show with Raunchy Sugar, then the next weekend (19th) we are at The Kapunda Music and Arts Festival on the main stage, Saturday night. Camperdown is our last interstate show this year, but next year we already have 6 lined up and possibly more. Fingers crossed.

No sooner do we get back from Campderdown… the following week we are playing as part of the Dia De Los Muertos Festival here in Adelaide… another huge night with local and interstate talent filling the stage (and of course the dance floor) all night long.

Don’t forget to keep a close eye on our facebook page. That is the one that updates most often, and most of our advertising for upcoming events is put there first. Our December 7th show with TJ and The Twinspinners sold out in no time at all through Facebook, so that is the place to be if you want to keep up to date with all things Lincoln.

Thanks guys. See you all soon.

Lee Lincoln.

Two weeks off!!

Well we’re taking a 2 week break from the live scene so we can recharge our batteries ready for the rest of the year. It also means we can catch up on those jobs around the house that have been on the back burner for err… far too long lol.

The Victor Harbor Festival is looming and we’re looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with a few new tracks up our sleeve. Keep rockin’ folks… see you all soon!

The Rechords are coming!! And other stuff…

August 10th from 6-30PM, you can catch The Lincolns, The Rechords, and DJ Midnight Rocker at Club West Lakes Bowling Club. Entry is just $15.00. It WILL be a great night, and one we’re really looking forward to. Check our Facebook event page for details.

It’s always an honour to share a bill with any of Australia’s top bands, and we’re lucky enough to have done it quite a few times now. Proud to say we’ve played with awesome home grown acts such as The Satellites, Lucky Seven, and The Saucermen… Interstate bands likeĀ  Atomic Hi-Tones, The Flattrakkers, Itchy Fingers, Pat Capocci, The Detonators, Sonyta and The Incinerators, and even international bands such as CC Jerome as well as The Go Getters. Adding The Rechords to that list is our pleasure and we’re extremely excited about it.

On to other stuff… We’re not long back from Echuca where we played as part of the July rock n roll festival. What a blast! It’s a great event and I highly recommend checking it out next year. The venue is great, and with shuttle buses running all night to take you to and from the venue to anywhere in the Echuca / Moama area, you can relax and have a few drinks knowing you can get homes safely. Cheers and beers to the organisers and everyone involved.

We seemed to go down very well to a superb crowd, and there’s been talk of ventures back into Victoria next year for The Lincolns, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope to see our Victorian friends again next year.

That’s all for now, but I’ll have more details regarding August / September gigs and adventures coming soon… including details on the Victor Harbor festival.

Keep rocking good people

 

What’s on in July.

CD’s and T-shirts are selling well, so thank you all for your continued support. We’ve just got back from a great gig in Brisbane where we made some new friends and had a fantastic night with Breakaways Rock n Roll club. We’re hoping to get back there again some time in the future.

July 12th & 13th will see us in Echuca for the Rich River Rock n Roll Festival. We’re looking forward to the show, but not to the drive. It’s only 8 hours though right!!

When we get back from Echuca we’re down at the Bocce Club in McLaren Vale for the Pasta and Rock n Roll night with our good friend DJ Midnight Rocker. This will be a fun night. All you can eat Pasta followed by dancing to The Lincolns and DJ Midnight Rocker. All for just $25!

July 26th you can catch us at The Settlers with Legends Rock n Roll Club, then on Sunday 28th, come and enjoy the atmosphere at The Lord Exmouth, otherwise known as The Monkey Bar, from 4pm to 8pm. Always a great night there.

Don’t forget The Rechords are coming to town on August 10th. Book your tickets to ensure you don’t miss out. Details are on our Facebook events page. Hope to see you all there.
