Festival Description

Ireland’s Showbands brings the very best artists of the era together to relive the unique sounds in an evening packed with pure nostalgia. All of the artists are accompanied by the outstanding musicians and vocalists of the Galaxy Showband who have been the backing band throughout the years. The popularity of the concert series has been matched by television viewers when BBC Northern Ireland recorded the series for three consecutive years, attracting audience figures which surpassed every other locally-produced television programme. Enthusiasm for the showband era is not just confined to audiences! Over the years the producers of the show, David Hull Promotions, have tracked down original showband artists from across the world including the USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand and invited them to take part in the show.
