Maura Walsh chats to Martin Lynch co-Writer of The Legendary Miami Showband Story ahead of their performance at The Gaiety Theatre, part of an All-Ireland Tour.
The musical will take audiences on a roller-coaster ride from the band’s glory days of stardom, fame, and fortune through the tragedy of 31st July 1975 when the dream came to a tragic end.
We revisit Ireland in the 1960s and 70s. We chat about the band’s origins, the songs, the number one hits, religion, conflict, memorials, borders, community but overall The Golden Age Of The Irish Showband Scene. Martin talks about the importance of ‘Song’ in the human story.
The musical is both a celebration and commemoration to the iconic Miami Showband and a tribute to keeping their legacy alive
