AN influx of rock ’n’ roll fans from as far away as Sydney and Melbourne will dance up a storm at the Commercial Club tonight.

Adelaide band The Lincolns will make their first appearance in Albury.

More than 120 tickets have been sold for the charity event, which will raise money for two charities — Dog Rescue Wodonga and Border Rescue.

Twin Cities Rock ’n’ Roll Club president Russell Hume said people were encouraged to dress in their best rock ’n’ roll gear.

“There will be cheque presentations in the breaks and a competition for best dressed couple, best dressed male and best dressed female on the night,” he said.

“The event is for all ages, so kids can come along; it’s going to be a really good night.”

The club has been entertaining the Border for 24 years and has raised more than $100,000 for charities.

Mr Hume said members met every Thursday night at the Commercial Club, providing lessons for beginner and intermediate dancers.

Tonight there will be a lucky door prize and drinks at bar prices.

The Lincolns take the stage from 8pm and tickets are available from Sonja on (02) 6040 3648 or Linda on 0434 575 118.
