Rockcorry Notes

March 8th, 2011



8th March 2011


 “Rock Country” Night

In a country where the once powerful growl of the vigorous Celtic Tiger has been reduced to an anxious whimper! In a country experiencing an economic crisis including countless banking controversies! In a country beset with many problems and surrounded with doom & gloom! But despite all the woes, twelve talented singers leaped forward from the crowd and shouted STOP! “Let us entertain you”. “We will put smiles back on the faces of the Rockcorry people”. “We will provide joy and excitement”. “We shall sing our favourite Country & Western songs and the people will have fun and have an amazing night. It will be a night like no other and it shall be named “ROCK COUNTRY” and will take place on Friday 18th March in St. Mary’s Hall. Performing on the night will be Phillip Clarke, Annette Hillis, Kelly Crowe, Hughie Carroll, Nuala Boylan, Fionnuala McQuillan, Robert Brown, Warren Brown, Elaine Tate, Irene McCormick, Ollie McQuillan and Patricia Treanor. All performers are working extremely hard practicing their routine to make sure the evening is as enjoyable and funny as possible and we would ask people to throw your weight behind this event and show your support by supporting them and buying a ticket for this magical experience that will live long in your memory. Last weekend all singers were in the studio recording the album and I was privileged to get a sneak preview of the CD and let me tell you folks it’s out of this world. You will all be familiar with the music featured on this spectacular CD and it will be officially launched on the night. Local DJ, Sean McCaffrey will be our master of ceremonies and “Rock Country” is guaranteed to be a show not to be missed. Come on folks, Live it, breathe it, looooove Rock Country Music.
