Sat 8th Aug | Doors 7pm. Show 8pm | Tkts: €29.50

 

For 50 years now the name 'Margo' has been synonymous with everything that is positive and enriching in Country and Irish music. Blessed with an instantly recognisable voice, a voice unlike any other in the music business, the Donegal-born singer, despite the ever changing musical trends, has remained a star attraction, muched loved by her fans, not only in Ireland and Britain, but also in the USA, Canada, Australia and other far destinations. It is to her eternal credit, that she still possesses an infectious enthusiasm for performing and recording, in spite of the many setbacks she has suffered, since those very early with The Keynotes.

 

Much of her overwhelming popularity over the years, stems from the fact that Margo has always maintained a close relationship with her fans. One of her greatest attributes as a singer is her special ability to interpret a song and perform it with genuine feeling. Nowhere is that talent more evident than in the "The Emigrant Song" featured on Trip through Ireland album.

 

Through the years Margo's recordings have continued to reflect her love of Country and Irish music, and to her credit she has never strayed from the early influences that shaped her career. Besides recording best-selling albums and singles, Margo's substantial list of achievements have included appearances at Carnegie Hall, The Royal Albert Hall, Grand Ole Opry, Wembley festival, Dollywood and all major venues in Australia.

 

Margo recorded an album in Nashville The Highway of my Life, which featured Dolly Parton's family, and Dolly dueted with Margo on two of the tracks.

 

Margo has received numerous national and international awards, and had the honour of presenting her very own shows back in 1772 on R.T.E. television, which were enormously popular.

 

It should never be forgotten that Margo has made an immense contribution to Country and Irish music. A special and unique talent, and a very sincere person. Margo is highly respected throughout the music business and with her many loyal fans.

New Show: June Rodgers brings her family show to Castlebar!

After last summer’s SELL-OUT shows June Rodgers is taking her fun filled family show, ‘In The Merry Month of June’, back on the road this year!

 

The response was amazing, a sell-out everywhere including the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, proving once again that variety theatre is alive, kicking and laughing. June Rodgers, Ireland’s foremost funny lady, is bringing her stunning stage show to the Royal Theatre for one very special show on Sat 13th June.

 

Theatre performance has always been June’s first love (she was the queen of panto at the Gaiety for many years), and has performed in musicals as diverse as “The Full Monty” and “The Pirates of Penzance”. In recent years she has concentrated on producing her own variety-style show for the Moran Hotel group in Dublin and Cork.

 

This slick production brings together June’s stock of hilarious characters with high energy and sophisticated song and dance routines performed by her dynamic cast. Listeners of the Joe Duffy’s Liveline will be very familiar with June’s regular featured spot on Funny Fridays. “I love the Funny Friday shows” June admits, “especially when we do them live at venues around the country”. This prompted her to embark on her first national theatre tour last summer, and her show sold out at each and every venue.

 

So be prepared to meet the international man of espionage, Oliver Bond – “the spy who loafed me”, Kylie Minogue as you have never seen her before; a Ricky Martin impersonator with a Wickla’ accent, and a host of June’s other characters – old and new.

 

With smooth choreography and stunning musical arrangements, this is a glamorous, up-to-the-minute funs show, rooted in the best of the variety theatre tradition, and a tonic for young and old.  If laughter is the best medicine, as they say, be prepared to overdose!

 

Ticket Price: €30 (Early bird tickets €25 until April 1st)

Tickets In-Person: Royal Theatre Box Office, Westport Road, and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.

Tickets By Phone: 094 9023111 or 0818 300 000

 Thurs 17th December | Doors 7pm. Show 8pm | Tkts: €38.00 | Tickets on sale this Fri 20th February @ 9am.

Jimmy will stop off for a show at The Royal Theatre, Castlebar on Thurs 17th December 2015.

 

Jimmy’s been described as ‘the hardest working man in comedy’. Which, let’s face facts, is not that impressive.

 

It’s like being the ‘Tallest Dwarf’ or the ‘Healthiest Glaswegian’. Really not that big a deal.

 

Live comedy is what Jimmy does best. His stand-up achievements to date include a British Comedy Award for ‘Best Live Stand-Up Tour’ and a Perrier Award nomination. On stage, he’s even funnier and even more outrageous - Funny Business is his brand new stand-up show.

 

Over 1.5 million people have now seen Jimmy perform live and his new tour will see him play over 200 dates between April 2014 and December 2015.

 

Come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition; stay for the knob gags.

Jimmy Carr - Funny Business Multiple choice.

 

Jimmy Carr’s ‘Funny Business’ will be:

a) Packed with jokes

b) Rude and offensive *

c) A great night out

 

If you answered a) b) or c) you were right!

* If you are easily offended. Don’t be a dick about it

The show is not suitable for anyone who hasn’t bought a ticket.

Mayo Convention Centre attracting lucrative business tourism

Article by Frances Toner, Mayo Advertiser.

Castlebar can expect a welcome boost to the local economy next weekend with well in excess of 1,500 delegates expected to attend the Fine Gael National Conference in the Mayo Convention Centre at the TF Royal Hotel.

 

A bi-annual, national, event, the conference on Friday and Saturday, February 20 and 21, will see party members from all over Ireland, senior ministers, and An Taoiseach Enda Kenny spend the weekend brainstorming policy matters and party strategy for the next 12 months.

 

Local hotels are booked to capacity as delegates will be staying over the weekend and many are likely to extend their stay further to tour the area when their official business in Castlebar is complete.

 

The conference is the first major national event hosted at the Mayo Convention Centre since management at the TF Royal Hotel & Theatre and the adjoining Harlequin Hotel unveiled plans in June 2014 to brand and market the ‘Royal Quarter’ to target the lucrative business tourism sector.

 

According to Louise Tolerton from Failte Ireland, the business tourism sector, which is experiencing strong growth, is worth some €579 million annually to the Irish tourism market and supports 19,000 jobs.

 

“It is one of the highest yield sectors in tourism,” explained Ms Tolerton. “Business tourists spend up to three times more than a leisure tourist and stay longer. Following their business stay, many tourists will then extend their visit by a few days to tour the locality themselves.”

 

Declan Durcan, marketing director at the Royal Theatre, said the plan is to put Castlebar on the map as an ideal location to host large-scale business conferences and conventions.

 

“We have four distinct advantages to attract these events,” said Mr Durcan. “We have 2,500 seats in the Royal Theatre, which not many other venues can offer. We have on-site accommodation with ample additional accommodation available in the close locality; we have ease of access, with a direct rail link to Dublin and we are located within just a one-hour flight from all of the major UK airports into Knock.

 

“The fourth advantage, which a lot of people overlook, is that the west of Ireland is a very desirable location. Delegates are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing a location for a convention so they will usually look at what’s on offer outside of the convention facilities as well, and more often than not, that’s what seals the deal.”

 

President of Castlebar Chamber of Commerce, Sylvester Jennings, said the Fine Gael conference is a good opportunity to “showcase all that Castlebar has to offer”.

 

“Castlebar, and the Mayo Convention Centre at the Royal Quarter, is a prime location for the hosting of these kinds of conferences and events and we have no doubt this will be evident to all of those who attend, and to the large audience who will be tuning in as sessions and talks are televised live on RTÉ,” explained Mr Jennings.

 

The next major event at the Mayo Convention Centre is the Irish Association of Barbershop Singers convention in October, which will bring 1,000 delegates to Castlebar for three days.

The newly revamped Castlebar Adventure Duathlon on Saturday March 14th will be the first of the adventure duathlons to take place in the West this year! And for those who don’t fancy the adventure there is a shorter course option. If you are a cyclist and not a runner or vice versa?? Then there is a plan for you too, with the relay option!! So there is no excuse to not to get involved.
 
There are two courses this year:
– Castlebar Duathlon (short): 3.5k run, 22k cycle, 3.5k run (relay option) Total 29k
– Castlebar Adventure Duathlon (Long): 3.5k run, 7k cycle, 8k Booster run, 15k cycle, 3.5k run. Total 37k
 
Registration and post event showers will all take place at the fully equipped Lough Lannagh Village. This years start line is at The Royal Theatre carpark. The initial run for all participants is 3.5k and takes in the picturesque Lough Lannagh with Croagh Patrick in the distance. The first transition is beside St Patricks Boys School at St Brigid’s Crescent.
 
The bike route heads out to the rolling hills of the Rathbawn towards Glenisland, after 7k into the bike route the group splits, those heading for some adventure leave their bikes behind and make the 4k ascent of the Booster Station. I don’t know how many will stop to take in the amazing panoramic views from the top but it is quite breathtaking! With 4k mainly downhill from the Booster station to the second transition it will offer a great opportunity for everyone to catch their breath and take in the sights before the adventurers will chase their short course duathlon counterparts on the remainder of the 15k cycle to Glenisland and home via the Newport Rd back to transition 1.
 
The relay is option is only opened to short course athletes and all relay changeovers will all be at transition 1..

Christy recently posted to thank all those for their support when he was ill - his words were as only Christy can write:

 

“Thank you for your messages - of goodwill by email, website, text and phone. There was Carrigeen Moss, Manuka, Cloves, Garlic, Lemon and Honey comin’ at me from all sides in various concoctions. I was submerged in Olbas laden steam, sweating, coughing and spluttering with the benylin exputin’ from out of my every orifice … but t’was only worse that I was getting. Finally I surrendered and, barely able to breathe, I went to the Doc.

He looked me up, he looked me down, at me he looked with a frown – “Drop your trousers and cough” sez he checkin’ under the bonnet for oil and water. “Say Agh” sez he, assessing me points plugs and tappets. He sent me home with Anti-Biotics, Steroids, Mucadyne, Nasal Spray and Codeine. He also gave me a go on his Nebulizer. Here I am 2 weeks later, finally able to say thanks to everyone. Thanks to my family for their love and forbearance. Thanks too to all“

 

Great to hear Christy is on the mend, we wish him well in his recovery and look forward to his show on Saturday Feb 28th, in the Royal Theatre.

Wyvern Lingo: Caoimhe Barry, Karen Cowley and Saoirse Duane

 

Female vocal group Wyvern Lingo have been making a big splash on the Irish music scene as Hozier’s backing singers.

 

Now, the soulful, passionate, and haunting Bray trio are taking centre stage for their own show in the Ruby Room at the Royal Theatre, Castlebar, on Friday February 6.

 

Karen Cowley, Saoirse Duane, and Caoimhe Barry are generating plenty of rave reviews for their outstanding ability to make their audiences melt when they strip the set back to a cappella before getting them back on their feet again and dancing with a full band of keys, guitar, synth, bass, and drums.

 

Their new EP is a cocktail of R‘n’B hooks, bluegrass licks, gospel harmonies, and insightful-beyond-their-years lyrics.

 

As well as providing the back up vocals for Hozier’s Irish tour, Wyvern Lingo were also the support act for the superstar at his packed-to-capacity Royal Theatre concert in December.

 

Described by Hotpress as a “female take on Mumford And Sons or Local Natives” and “an absolute treat”, Wyvern Lingo is certainly one group to watch in 2015.

 

Tickets for the Royal Theatre performance on Friday February 6, at 10pm (doors open at 9pm ), are on sale now, costing €12.50, from the box office, Westport Road, or from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.

Tickets are also available by phone on (094 ) 9023111 or 0818300000 or online here.

 

  

 

 

“Karen Cowley (keys), Saoirse Duane (guitar) and Caoimhe Barry (percussion) all possess colossal voices, echoing everyone’s favourite chart-topping wonder women Florence Welch and Adele Adkins.The result is, to be lazy, a female take on Mumford And Sons or Local Natives, and to be frank, an absolute treat.”

Celina Murphy, Hotpress.

 

“Folk-pop trio Wyvern Lingo’s deeply structured vocal harmonies and palpable blend of organic folk sounds and pop-sensibilities has identified the three-piece as a band on the ascendancy.”

Inspirational sister, daughter, mother and relentless Cystic Fibrosis activist, Martina Jennings, was last night awarded the title of Mayo’s Inspirational Woman by MRCC, at a packed out venue at the TF Royal Hotel, Castlebar. The fundraising event Nollaig na mBan or Women's Little Christmas, was held to raise funds for the Mayo Rape Crisis Centre building in Castlebar which is in urgent need of repair after recent storm damage revealed extensive structural problems.

 

Martina Jennings was nominated by her brother Billy who has CF, as well as others including her own daughter. Martina's mother died when Billy was 7 years old and since then, together with her sister Caroline she has cared for Billy right up until a recent lung and heart transplant and continues to do so. As a fundraiser extraordinaire for CF West, she has helped make a 1.3 Million euro clinic for people with Cystic Fibrosis a reality. Focused on her goal, Martina has been relentless in her pursuit of making the world and Mayo not just more informed but a better place for those with CF.

 

The event, which was sold out within days of the tickets going on sale, saw keynote speaker, Senator Marie Louise O Donnell, broadcaster, politician and lecturer, deliver a hilarious yet thought-provoking speech about the empowerment of women, ending with an outstanding recital of renowned African-American poet, Maya Angelou’s ‘Phenomenal Woman’. Luxury gifts generously donated from across the local business community for spot prizes and raffle prizes were distributed to over 130 women who enthusiastically supported the event, including well-known TV presenter sisters, Grainne and Sile Seoige.

 

Loretta McDonagh, MRCC Acting Director of Services said: “Martina Jennings is a very worthy winner and we are very proud to award her our inaugural Mayo’s Inspirational Woman title for her outstanding work for Cystic Fibrosis. Indeed all the women who were nominated for this award are truly inspirational and deserve to be recognized for the positive impact they have had on the lives of others.

 

We were completely overwhelmed by the huge level of support we received from the Mayo community, both businesses and individuals, for our Nollaig na mBan fundraising event. This is indicative of the community spirit which has helped us to build the foundations and facilitate a vital service for over 20 years for those affected by sexual violence here in Mayo. With constant threats to our funding we have to rely on the generosity of our local public and they have delivered time after time.”

It is almost time to boo, laugh, scream, and holler 'oh yes it is' as the onstage antics unfold at one of the firm favourites in the entertainment calendar in Mayo.

 

Castlebar Pantomime is ready to make a big splash with its 30th anniversary production of The Little Mermaid in the The Royal Theatre from Thurs 8th to Sun 11th. And, according to director Antoinette Starken, this year's production is going to be absolutely spectacular as the panto committee celebrates 30 years onstage in the county town.

 

Many will be familiar with the much loved story of The Little Mermaid, Ariel, who dreams of being able to live on land and live happily ever after with her dashing prince. In order to get her wish and exchange her tail for legs, the mermaid has to give Ursula the enchantress something in return - her voice.

 

Will it all be worth it? Or will some other evil prevent the two from being together?

 

This year, the pantomime committee is using a system of projected backdrops, 

similar to those used in a West End show, to give their 30th anniversary production

some extra 'wow factor'.

 

The Little Mermaid looks set to be a colourful, musical, entertaining show

for all of the family to enjoy.

 

Tickets: Child €14, Adult €17, Family ( 2 adult, 2 child) €50, €14 for all tickets on Thursday 8th

 

EVENING SHOWS:
Thur 8th – Sat 10th Jan 2015

Review of David Gray at The Royal Theatre

on Monday, 15 December 2014
in Uncategorized

Hat-tip to Eamonn O'Neill at GigsAndFestivals.co.uk for the review.

For over two decades, Ireland has had a long protracted love affair with David Gray. The Irish public were the first to really embrace his music, and ever since the English singer-songwriter released his earliest material, he has been a regular visitor here. Now nine albums into a career that has seen him go on to become a multi-million selling artist, tonight with band in tow, David Gray was in Castlebar Co. Mayo, on the third date of a short Irish tour that has also taken in shows in Dublin and Killkenny.

The Royal Theatre was filled to capacity as the lights dimmed and a moody rhythmic loop announced David Gray’s arrival on stage. Kicking off with ‘Birds Of The High Arctic’, the ambitious opus was a grand and dramatic opener. Backed by an impressive seven-piece band, and with a striking lighting display that included searching strobes, Gray seated at a piano conducted a carefully choreographed spectacle. Theatrically rising to his feet to gee up the audience during its most intensive passage, the song’s climax was balanced by a minimalist mournful closing section that saw a solo Gray return to the piano, just as when it had begun. It was a spectacular opening, perfectly encapsulating the show as a whole that was to follow.

The first half of the night focused solely on new album ‘Mutineers’. The introspective ‘As The Crow Flies’ featured Gray alternating between guitar and piano, while the foot-stomping ‘Back In The World’ really showed off his band’s abilities as singers, with its multi-part harmonies. The title track meanwhile, pulsed along as music box piano melded to chugging acoustic guitars, showcasing the variety of sounds that Gray’s band is capable of.

A show like this is built to be enjoyed in the seated confines of a theatre, and with each of the newer songs being multi-layered epics with extended running times and passages of light and shade, the theatre setting gave the audience the chance to enjoy every nuance of their performance. With such dense soundscapes, the aural quality of the show was critical, and tonight pleasingly, it was faultless, with instruments cutting through crisply and cleanly while layered vocal harmonies blended in chorus. Gray’s band is filled with consummate musicians, with each playing an important part. Irish guitarist David Kitt, who had earlier opened the night with a brief solo set, added subtle guitar passages, vocals and occasional piano, whilst local girl Niamh Farrell provided exquisite harmonies, as evidenced on ‘Kathleen’. Cello player Caroline Dale meanwhile, added colourful touches, particularly with her beautifully melodic solo during ‘Last Summer’.

David Gray’s on stage persona meanwhile, was a mishmash of different guises. Although for the most part he is essentially piano man, balladeer and troubadour, he burst into life during the more energetic explosions in his show, coming across like a game-show host come evangelical preacher come, well, demented lunatic. First urging the crowd to their feet during ‘Cake And Eat It’, and later during ‘The One I Love’, his shtick was truly engaging, and raised even the most rooted of the well-mannered Castlebar crowd to their feet.

With new album duly promoted, the second half of the show delved into Gray’s extensive back catalogue, and included a host of tracks from ubiquitous turn of the millennium world conquering album ‘White Ladder’. A sublime ‘My Oh My’, dedicated to Manchester United striker Marouane Fellaini, was followed by ‘Eyes Wide Open’, which highlighted just what a powerful voice Gray possesses. With his notes soaring over the widescreen dream state version of the song that the band brought to life, it was a spine-tingling performance.

With band leaving the stage, Gray took the crowd back to how it all began for him, performing an intimate solo set that featured some of his earliest material, including Irish hit single ‘Late Night Radio’. Introducing ‘Shine’, the first song from 1993’s debut album ‘A Century Ends’ meanwhile, he revealed that, “It’s tradition for me to play this song the first time I play in a venue”. In a telling revelation of the dedication and longevity of his Irish fan base, the airing received one of the loudest applauses of the night.

The undeniable highlight of the evening however was an explosive extended take on ‘Please Forgive Me’. The opening track from his most famous album, it was a performance that was simply euphoric. Bursting with energy, the remarkable drum patterns provided by Keith Prior anchored the song as the show improbably turned into a rave, with flashing lights, thumping bass lines and programmed keyboards. With Gray enthusiastically encouraging the voices in the crowd, the song’s “every time I look at you” refrain became a glorious sing along. It was a stunning end to the main set, and clocking in at over seven minutes, was a joyous elongated celebration.


Following that show stopping performance, Gray encored solo playing his best known track ‘Babylon’. Aided by a note-perfect Castlebar audience who lent their voices in support, the contrasting difference between the two unique performances once again served to highlight the opposing extremes in the set. With the night coming to an end, a victorious run through ‘Nemesis’ from 2009’s ‘Draw The Line’ album was perfectly apt, with its “it’s been a long night” lyric perfectly summing up the previous two plus hours. It had indeed been a long night, however, this was happily so, and as the song reached its climactic crescendo, every audience member was out of their seats clapping their hands and stamping their feet in time. It was a rapturous end to an incredible night of music.


Earlier, when he sang “This year’s love had better last”, David Gray could be safe in the knowledge that whatever relationship he was singing about, the one that he has with the Irish is still very much enduring after more than twenty years. Outside the weather may have been more suited to the birds of the high arctic that he sang about in his opening number, but tonight David Gray and band warmed the hearts of the Castlebar crowd, with a superb show. Entertaining and enthralling, tonight in the west of Ireland David Gray proved that he is still a world-class act.

The Bjorn Identity: An ideal Christmas Party

The Björn Identity perform an outstanding tribute to Sweden’s biggest export; the worlds most famous super group and winners of the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest, ABBA.


The Björn Identity launched their show in 2010, and after a recent marathon of critically acclaimed performances in theatres and festivals, they are now THE finest and most authentic tribute to ABBA around. Boasting LIVE musicians and singers with West End, European & International tours behind, them they really know how to bring the ABBA experience back to life!


Karen (Agnetha) and Diana (Frida) perform for you a catalogue of ABBA’s best loved songs, producing wonderful, meticulously studied harmonies; combined with a stunning visual likeness and subtle (ABBA style) choreography. The founding members of The Björn Identity are professional actors and singers, and believe in re-capturing a performance as close to the real thing as possible; seeing and hearing is believing.


Particular highlights of their theatre shows is the replication ABBAs 1979 tour in which they include a performance of “I Have a Dream” from local school choirs.


The Björn Identity will undoubtedly exceed all your expectations of ABBA tributes and are widely known for their love of audience participation, Swedish humour, professionalism and commitment to the music of their tribute idols.


Showcasing beautifully handmade replica costumes, knee high platforms and a good second place to Agnetha’s rear of the year… their attention to detail will not go un-noticed!


Testimonial:

"With advance sales so strong and a big crowd guaranteed my only concern was how well the performance would be received. My fears were allayed during sound check. I new they could play and sing but it wasn't until they took the stage at 10pm that I fully relaxed. The band gave the complete tribute experience. They delivered on every level but especially with crowd interaction. One lady who asked me to turn the volume down during dinner service (before show) was asked to get down off the furniture a few hours later. If this is how well Bjorn Identity went down on their inaugural performance we are very strongly positioned for next year. So thanks again to everyone, you nailed it and made the venue look great." 



Christmas Party Option

Enjoy the show after a scrumptious Christmas party dinner.

Dinner 9pm. Show 10.30pm.

Christmas Dinner and Show: €29.50.

The hysterical comedy parody of ‘50 Shades of Grey’. Written by Leesa Harker. 

Returning after two hugely successful runs in Dublin and touring across Ireland, the UK and Australia, is smash hit comedy Fifty One Shades of Maggie. 
 

The best selling Irish send-up of 50 Shades of Grey tells the story of loveable Maggie Muff and her search for love. Maggie is a working class girl who, like most women, has been let down by all the men in her life.

 

Attending an interview at the Social Security Office Maggie meets the handsome and hunky Mr Big - but will Mr Big turn out to be the man of her dreams, or will his “Private Room of Pain” put her off?

 

This hilarious new play full of naughty bits will have you laughing out loud. Join Maggie and her friends on this (slightly filthy) journey of love, booze and whips!

 

This is the perfect girly night out with your friends for the best night at the theatre you’ve had in ages! Prepare for the funniest, sexiest (and maybe dirtiest) show of 2014.

‘Hilarious ... the joy is in the outrageous script’ - BBC

‘Sides still sore with laughing ... three words .... Fun, Filth and FABULOUS!’ - Dianne Crawford   

 

Please note due to the strong language and themes of an adult nature this show is deemed unsuitable for anyone under the age of 16.

Tickets In-Person: Royal Theatre Box Office, Westport Road, and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.

The Drifters: Keeping the flame burning bright

Posted by The Team
The Team
Keeping you updated with all the happenings in The Royal Theatre.
User is currently offline
on Thursday, 23 October 2014
in Uncategorized

By Ed Power, The Irish Examiner.
 

IT’S different if you’re a Drifter, says Michael WiIliams. When the singer was invited to join the American vocal group several years go, it was made clear he had a tough road ahead. He would have to serve as understudy for several tours — even then, his place in the line-up was conditional on becoming intimately acquainted with the R&B ensemble’s history, from its inception in Philadelphia in 1953.
 

“Tina Treadwell [daughter of legendary Drifters manager George Treadwell] approached me after a gig in New York and asked if I wanted to be an understudy,” Williams recalls.
 

“She said I reminded her of [‘50s Drifter] Andrew Thrasher. He was a big guy with a similar voice to mine. I had to learn everything: the back catalogue, the history of the guys, the legacy… everything. The Drifters achieved a lot and it’s up to us to keep that legacy alive. It is quite a responsibility.”
 

Early on it was decided The Drifters, whose hits include ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’ and ‘Under the Boardwalk’, would be a ‘brand’ as much as a band. The group was assembled as a backing group for singer Clyde McPhatter but was soon losing members through military conscription. With George Treadwell taking over as manager, it was decreed The Drifters would feature an ever changing line-up — indeed, at one point Treadwell, fearing the Drifters’ popularity was on the slide, fired the entire group. Ever since Drifters have come and gone, while the identity of the band has endured.
 

“They knew they were going to lose members — that this would be a regular occurrence, in fact,” says Williams. “Some players came and went and had second stints with The Drifters. We have had a changing line-up ever since. It’s a brand that will keep going, as we keep the memory alive.” However, The Drifters are no dusty museum piece. In 2012, the group released their first original collection in 35 years, earning a gold disc.
 

“That was a big deal for us — a couple of years before that, some of the original Drifters, Butch Leake and Lee Hollis, received lifetime achievement awards from Sony. It all tied together nicely. It meant a lot to be able to put out new material.”
 

He is proud to be a member of an outfit which has spanned the decades — proud, also, of The Drifters’ part in furthering the cause of African-American entertainers.
 

“Starting out, it was tough for those guys,” he says. “Touring America, they weren’t allowed stay in ‘white’ hotels. They couldn’t use the swimming pools. They had to go around the back entrance if they were staying somewhere. Certain restaurants wouldn’t serve them. They travelled America in a beat-up Cadillac and never gave up. Life was very difficult for those guys — and they kept on going.”
 

Indeed, so rich is the group’s lineage, Williams admits to a quiver of nerves when taking to the stage as a Drifter for the first time. He stood in the wings, thinking of all the great vocalists to grace the line-up across the decades. Then, the spotlight came down and he had to leave his jitters to one side.
 

“Those are big shoes to fill,” he says. “I found that hard, starting out. Being an understudy, becoming a Drifter...there’s a lot to take in. However, in the end I got there. I feel I fill those shoes now.”
 

The Drifters play INEC Killarney on Friday; Olympia, Dublin on Saturday; Royal Theatre, Castlebar on Sunday and Opera House, Cork, Monday.

Top Irish stand-up and TV comic Neil Delamere is coming to the Royal Theatre, Castlebar on St Valentines Night, Sat 14th Feb 2015 with his brand new tour, The Fresh Prince of Delamere.

 

Described by The Scotsman as “a master”, Delamere is renowned for his on-stage banter and quick-witted, well-observed yarns and previous tours & international appearances – including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival – have been a sell-out. Expect The Fresh Prince of Delamere to deliver the same powerhouse performance from the star of RTÉ’s The Panel, 2nd Republic, BBC’s The Blame Game, Fighting Talk and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. 

 

A star of TV as well as stage, Neil can be seen on TV screens later this month in the tenth season of the ever-popular panel show The Blame Game on BBC and in the forthcoming four-part comedy documentary series Holding Out for A Hero, which airs in December on RTE2. Holding Out for A Hero, which is written and presented by Neil offers a wry and humorous look at the lives of four Irish heroes from history: Grace O’Malley/Granuaile, Red Hugh O’Donnell, Cú Chulainn and Fionn Mac Cumhaill.  It follows in the footsteps of the IFTA and Celtic Media Award-winning TV programmes on the Vikings and St. Patrick, also written and presented by Delamere.

 

“Simply put Delamere is a master” - The Scotsman

Mon 8th Dec | Doors 7.30pm. Show 8.30pm | Tkts: €40

*Tickets on sale Tues 14th Oct @ 9am*

 

 

Twenty one years since his first studio album, David Gray’s tenth and latest, Mutineers, finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory “I think if you’re going forward with an open heart, good things will happen,” says David. “You have to sort of tear up the past and let it go.”

 

David’s past includes the phenomenal success of White Ladder with 12 million album sales worldwide and 16 years after it's release it is still the bestselling album ever in Ireland with seven million copies sold. Four years after the initial release of 'White Ladder', Gray followed up with 2002's 'A New Day at Midnight'. His 2005 album 'Life in Slow Motion', achieved similar success and also gave Gray his biggest chart hit to date in the US. The career-spanning Greatest Hits followed later that year, featuring two new tracks as well as Gray’s most popular numbers.

 

Mutineers is an experiment that seems to fizz with the joy of its own assembly. The sound of a musician making a clean break and some sharp turns but also reconnecting with the freedoms of an earlier dream, a rebuke and a salutation to all that’s gone before.

Tickets In-Person: Royal Theatre Box Office, Westport Road, and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.

Story by Deirdre Kelly of The Connaught Telegraph.
 

DO you have what it takes to beat The Kube? Based on the popular ITV game show hosted by Philip Schofield, you will have an opportunity to test your nerve, ability and determination at a novel night’s entertainment in the Royal Theatre, Castlebar, on Friday, October 17.

 

Boots Castlebar, in conjunction with the Royal Theatre, are hosting The Kube in support of the Irish Cancer Society. A number of Mayo footballers are among those who have already signed up for the event, and it’s not too late to join them.

 

Boots want 42 skilled and tactical contestants to take part, with €1,000 up for grabs for the winner as they test contestants’ physical ability, mental ability, intelligence and responsiveness. There will be seven heats, with six people competing against each other in each heat. The two winners of each heat go through to the semi-finals, where the real battle begins.

 

There will be an opportunity for members of the audience to also have a go in the Kube on the night. And the ‘bookies’ will be there to take your bets. 

 

Speaking at the launch, Boots Castlebar manager, Caroline McCaffrey, said the event will have all the lights, colour and action of the TV programme. It’ll be an intimate setting, with the kube itself positioned in the centre of the theatre, surrounded by tiered seating.

 

This is one of the biggest shows the production company have been involved with and the enthusiasm of the organising team promises it’ll be a thrilling event. Caroline and her team are passionate too about the chosen charity, the Irish Cancer Society. With 230 new cases of cancer in Mayo every year, it’s something that affects every family, she pointed out, and they wanted to give something back to their community.

 

Pat Jennings of the Royal Theatre said the show was not only innovative and different but also part of the community-driven programme which the theatre has in mind. He highlighted how the Royal Theatre has at least one community driven project each month for the next six months. “We are about giving back to the community and we are pleased to support this venture,” he said.

 

To pit your wits against The Kube or get tickets (€20) for the show, get in touch at Boots Castlebar on (094) 9060823, Boots Westport on (098) 56774, Boots Ballina on (096) 75602, or contact Lisa on (086) 2324543 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You can also buy tickets online at Ticketmaster.ie or on the door on the night, subject to availability. You can get further information on The Kube Boots Castlebar Facebook page.

Each contestant will be asked to register their details and raise €250 for the Irish Cancer Society. The contestant to raise the most money is automatically entered into the semi-finals.

Celebrating 40 Years of Dr Hook featuring Ray Sawyer

Let The Good Times Roll ... Dr Hook featuring Ray Sawyer are on the road again!


Millions of fans around the world will remember Ray Sawyer as the highly animated, eye patched, lead singer of the group. His raspy, soulful, and sometimes comic vocals fronted the bands breakthrough to the ‘Cover of The Rolling Stone’ and international superstar status from the late 1960’s to the early 1980’s, with many hits including Sylvia’s Mother, When You’re In Love With A Beautiful Woman, A Little Bit More, Sharing The Night Together, Everybody’s Making It Big But Me, More Like The Movies, Sexy Eyes and Years From Now.


Accumulating 60 Gold and Platinum records worldwide with Dr Hook, Ray Sawyer has gained the confidence of a seasoned entertainer and still travels the world with his band. His son, Cayce has been touring with him since he was 13, playing percussion and singing background vocals in the show. He is now the drummer for the Band. Ray has had the honour of being inducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame in April 2005. With an abundance of stage energy, and impish sense of humour, an unmistakable voice and image, and a unique ability to reflect his good times in good music, Ray is definitely a song stylist of the first order, and never was it more evident ...


Ray Sawyer was born and lived in Mobile, Alabama, and got his first job as a musician at the age of 14. His style was indelibly marked by the amalgam of black and white Southern music that kept Alabama dance halls hopping. “When you play Mobile, you play either Country or Rhythm & Blues, though down there, they are just about the same thing” Sawyer explains. Developing a style that extracted honesty and emotion - the best traits of both Country and R&B, Ray sings with an intensity and sense of conviction that truly moves an audience.


He got his trademark eye patch in 1967 as the result of a car accident, and he was in a wheelchair for a year. When he got back on his feet, Sawyer headed to Los Angeles, working his way back east where the core of Dr Hook was formed in time to record Shel Silversteins score to the Dustin Hoffman movie ‘Who Is Harry Kellerman And Why Is He Saying These Terrible Things About Me?’

Julie Feeney plays the Royal Theatre this Friday night (Oct 3rd)!

Sharp witted, unpretentious and fiercely passionate, Julie Feeney is a genuine artist and a hugely enjoyable performer.

Julie Feeney's sell-out shows on both sides of the Atlantic have received rave reviews, whether solo, with ensemble, with choirs or with full orchestra, and she composes, arranges and orchestrates all of her own music. Her three albums have been critically acclaimed internationally and she has created a whole host of stunning music videos to accompany them. Her opera ‘BIRD’ goes into full production in 2016.

 

In her live shows she combines her ‘mesmerizing stage presence and eccentric pop genius’ (Hot Press) with her unquestionably original sound; and her innovative, avant-garde approach, while rooted in classical music, straddles both the pop and theatrical worlds. For her recent sell-out 10 show run in New York, the New York Times said of Julie, ‘…intricate, articulate…draws on sources across centuries… Ms. Feeney's songs don't shout. They tease, ponder, reminisce, philosophize and invent parables, and she sings them in a plush, changeable mezzo-soprano that usually holds a kindly twinkle’. The New York Times concluded, ‘…a brainy adventurous songwriter lives within the flamboyant theatricality…with songs that set character studies and philosophical musings in elaborate musical confections, often with long, internally rhymed lines… Theatrical on the shell, intricate at the core’.

 

Her third album Clocks went straight to No. 1 in the Independent Irish Album Charts on its Irish release. It was voted ‘Best Album' in The Irish Times ‘Album of the Year' as voted by The Irish Times readers and it was also shortlisted for the Choice Music Prize. Julie is winner of the Choice Music Prize for ‘Irish Album of the Year' for her self-produced debut album 13 songs on which she played most of the instruments herself. Her second album pages was shortlisted for the Irish Album of The Year prize and featured in '101 Irish Albums You Must Hear Before You Die' by Liberties Press.

Review by Eamon O'Neill. (via Mayo.ie)

 

For any other artist, this review might begin ‘making a rare visit to the west of Ireland’,but for Bryan Adams that simply wouldn’t be true. Following on from his headline appearance just ten miles down the road at the Westport Festival less than three months ago, today the Canadian superstar was back in the Co. Mayo, bringing his ‘Bare Bones’ show to the Royal Theatre in Castlebar. Although the number of gigs in this part of the country has pleasingly been steadily on the increase in recent years, for some it’s a treat not to have to travel to the more usual Belfast and Dublin venues on the other side of the country to see an artist of this calibre.

 

The ‘Bare Bones’ tour has seen Adams going back to basics. He first stripped things right back in 1997, with the release of his MTV Unplugged album, an acoustic album that featured a full band, tonight he took the concept even further. Without fanfare, a lone Adams with acoustic guitar in hand strolled on stage with a smile, and launched straight into ‘Run To You’. Lit by a single spotlight, it’s one man, one guitar, one voice. And what a voice he has. With no big production or band to hide behind, many a singer would falter, but Adams’ familiar gravelly tones soar, as the crowd were captivated from the off. 

 

He followed it up with ‘It’s Only Love’ before being joined by Gary Breit on piano. “This is the band” he comically told the crowd. Breit’s contribution bolstered the songs that followed, and allowed Adams to show off his not inconsiderable guitar skills. Breit too is no slouch, as demonstrated on ‘When You Love Someone’ and later, on ‘Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman’.

 

The show was an intimate affair, with minimal lighting and sparse staging. Adams’ stage banter too brought a closeness to the occasion, and when he spotted one punter leaving for ‘a refill’, he asked “do you want me to wait for you?”.It was clear that the crowd were on his side, providing percussive hand-claps on cue. Not only that, but they were in fine singing voice as well. Also it was genuinely shocking to hear the dominating female voices in the crowd lending their neigh on note perfect tones to ‘Finally Found Someone’ and ubiquitous 1990’s number one ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’.

 

It was not all sentimental though, as the pace picked up with a spirited ‘Can’t Stop This Thing We Started’ complete with disco lighting. Adams is of course a pro, and the tempo of the show could not be faulted as rocker followed ballad followed anthem. Picking out the ‘wildest woman’ in the audience to dance during ‘If Ya Wanna Be Bad - Ya Gotta Be Good’ he even convincingly tackled blues. 

 

He was clearly having fun, pulling out tracks from every period of his career, but of course there are songs that he simply has to play, and when he did the place predictably went crazy. ‘Summer Of‘69’ had everyone on their feet, whilst ‘Heaven’ once again incited the newly created Castlebar choir. Clearly appreciative of the adulation, he gave it back, and upon noticing a pair of empty seats in the front row, invited two ladies that were at the very back of the theatre in the ‘nose bleed’ seating on the third floor balcony to fill them. It's a fantastic gesture that the crowd received enthusiastically.

 

Handing control over to the audience for a ‘request’ section, he played a snippet of ‘Jealousy’ for one lady, a verse and chorus of '18 ‘Til I Die’ for another, and offered an apology to one man in the front row who has been to an incredible sixty Bryan Adams shows, for being unable to remember how to play one of his earliest songs. The cooperative atmosphere suited Adams, and as the main set drew to a close he urged the audience to their feet and out of their seats, “fill up that hallway” he commanded! They didn’t need asking twice and pretty soon the floor was wedged, turning the theatre into a concert hall as Bryan and Gary launched into a celebratory ‘The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You’.

 

The closing encores of ‘Somebody’ and ‘I Still Miss You… A Little Bit’ raised the roof on an incredible night, before ‘Straight From The Heart’ brought things right back to where they started, with a solitary Adams singing under a lone spotlight. Leaving to rapturous applause, he took time to shake hands with those in the front row before taking his parting bows.

 

The stripped down show offers affirmation, as if it were needed, of not only what a stunning catalogue of hits Adams has, but also his abilities as a singer, musician and entertainer. Those here tonight have witnessed something truly special. With the ‘Bare Bones’ tour coming to an end, normal service resumes with a full band arena tour celebrating the 35th anniversary of the ‘Reckless’ album due to hit the UK before the end of the year. Whether acoustic or electric, Adams knows how to put on a show and this was definitely a night to remember.
