 “Rock Country” Night

The countdown is over guys and gals as the performers are in the final rehearsals before tomorrow night’s (Friday 18th March) BIG Country & Western show which promises to be on par, if not bigger and better than other shows done to date! During the week I caught up with the main event organiser Ollie McQuillan and he quoted “the music is just amazing”. He highlighted that “Rock Country has all the ingredients of a big Country & Western night”. He also commented on the performers stating that “we have a very talented group of singers and the audience on Friday night will be treated to a great variety of styles, with each making their own version of the song their own”. After getting a sneak preview of the CD last week I am certainly 100% in agreement with you Ollie and I guarantee you folks Rock Country will be a great night’s entertainment so please show your support by supporting them and buy a ticket for this event or you can pay at the door. 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. Some of the artists featured will include Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Ronnie Milsap, Billy Jo Spears and Roy Rogers to name but a few! So boys get those checkered shirts back out of the closet and girls get those legs out of the high heels and into your cowgirl boots! We want to see ya all looking your very best tomorrow night (Friday 18th March) as we dance the night away to some fabulous country classics. Local DJ, Sean McCaffrey will be our Master of Ceremonies and “Rock Country” will definitely be a Root’n, Toot’n good ole time. Yee-Ha!
