Normie Rowe and The Playboys

SYC Social presents an afternoon with friends and the first King of Pop!

Not only was Normie Rowe the first King Of Pop, he was far and away, Australia’s most successful pop idol during the explosion of pop music and fashion in the mid-60s. He produced a string of hits that are an important contribution to the soundtrack of the Baby Boomer generation. Que Sera Sera, Shakin’ All Over, It Ain’t Necessarily So, It’s Not Easy and Ooh La La, among them, produced fan and media hysteria unseen before or since for an Australian artist.

At the peak of his popularity, Normie was called up for Army service. Following which he turned his hand to television acting (Sons and Daughters), theatre (Les Miserables) and honing his singing skills. His repertoire is drawn from the breadth of an extraordinary performing career. He is an Australian treasure and the consummate entertainer who is constantly “on tour”. He is, quite simply, a legend.

What a treat to have Normie and his band, The Playboys play at SYC for our members and their guests, an event not to be missed!
