Hi..

I feel that had Frank and the guys had the right promotion they could have done so much more. We used to travel miles (when we were on holiday) to hear them. We used to love going to the Ballymore Music Festival. Often sitting in our cars (as it was pouring), with the windows down (listening), flashing headlights and tooting the horn!!!!! The things we used to do eh?
Kind regards
Dawn

Hi

Yes the certainly were. At that time my sister and I were in our early teens and poor dad had to drive us all over the country during our summer holidays to hear all our favourite bands (he loved it too though). Great memories!

While I agree that most of the bands mentioned in the above posts were very good, you have to go back further to get to the really good showbands. The Capitol, Johnny Quigley,Donie Collins etc. But the best of all were the Royal. Grin


Hello, Re' the question you asked me about 'Michael Gilligan', I do not recall the name. I joined The 'Blue Aces' from County Waterford when they lived in England in about 1964. Ron Ryan.

Roll Eyeshi i think that ther were quite a few singers to mention like boxcar willie, and the younger singers like jimmy buckley and patrick feeney, mike denver etc but the king of country music has to be the man himself big tom i think he is brilliant and his contribution to the country music over 4 decades is something to be proud of as some singers/bands dont even last the pace i hope he still continues,

cheers
i also likle barry doyle aka (farmer dan) and declan nerney

One of the best bands of the late 70's and early 80's was Chips.A truely class act.They performed brillantly wherever they played.I have fond memories of watching them on many occasions.Paul,Linda and Irene were and still are I guess, great singers
I liked them so much that I saw them play twice in 1 night! Happy days!
I have to say nearly all the bands were good in those days.They loved what they did! Smiley
