The Ronan Collins Showband Show Reelin In The Showband Years, which was a complete sell-out right around the country for the past three years, returns to the Simon Ryan Theatre on Friday, January 25th at 8pm and tickets are now on sale from the box office. This show was a complete sell-out last year. So, get your tickets fast!
Dickie Rock is the headline act for 2013. He is simply a legend of showbiz for the past forty years. Too many hits to mention, but Simon Says They’ll be coming From The Candy Store on the Corner, Every Step of the Way, to see him perform!
RTE’s Ronan Collins is host and compere. Ronan will also sing his tribute to Joe Dolan, which was so popular last year, and much more. Mark Leen, known as “The Emerald Elvis”, will be singing the hits of the man who had the most influence on all the early showbands, Elvis Presley. Mark was recently voted Europe’s number one Elvis impersonator. Almost better than the real thing!
Don’t miss the big sound of The Conquerors Showband - one of the greatest showbands of them all and still packing them in everywhere they go. The Galway boys sang “Baby Blue” and many more.
DJ Curtin, who is now Las Vegas-based, will also feature. DJ is the former lead singer with The Kerry Blues Showband and The Big Eight and still has a great big voice which can cover everything from Tom Jones to Englebert Humperdinck. DJ is still in demand in the world’s capital city of entertainment, Las Vegas!
Another star set to shine is Lorraine McDonald who is one of the brightest talents to emerge from the latter days of the showband boom.
