A rock’n’roll dance featuring Australian icon Little Pattie and backing group The Mighty Guys will be the highlight opening event leading up to this year’s Shir Madness Jewish music festival in Sydney.

The dance is the brainchild of Eva and Eddie Cadry and Jeanette and Danny Kidron.

They told J-Wire: We held a similar dance two years ago at Maroubra Synagogue and had to turn people away. It was an amazing night with a sell-out crowd already at the doors before they opened. People were dancing on crutches and with orthpedic boots”.

Little Pattie performed at the Maroubra dance with the same backing group so the Cadrys and the Kidrons know that the Shir Madness lead-up event will have rock’n’rollers on their feet for most of the night.

The Bondi Pavilion will host the second Shir Madness festival on March 25. In 2010 over 2000 people attended the event at which Jewish musicians play any music of their choice and non-Jewish artists perform Jewish-related  music. This year’s Shir Madness will be held on March 5 and will feature over 40 bands using five stages within the the Bondi Beach Pavilion complex.

The Cadrys and Kidrons told J-Wire that this year’s rock’n’roll precursor event will be held at Sydney Boys’ High School which offers a bigger and better dance floor and plenty of parking. They added: “We have a capacity limit of 500 and expect another sell-out. Early indications show that  members of the community from across the city and spanning all age groups will be patronising the dance…and seating will be available for those in need of few minutes rest!”

Proceeds from the dance will go to funding the increasingly popular Shir Madness.
