The Miami Showband Story

The Miami Showband Story
Gaiety Theatre
Tuesday 17 to Saturday 21 September 20119
Doors open at 19.00hrs

Are you ready to revisit Ireland in the 1960’s in the company of the legendary Miami Showband and all their fantastic hits? Who remembers Simple Simon Says, From The Candy Store or Clap Your Hands, Stomp Your Feet?
Even if you’re too young to remember the 60’s and 70’s, this is still the show for you.  Told through the eyes of two best friends and Miami songwriters, Fran O‘Toole and Des Lee, The Miami weaves us through the amazing roller coaster story of the iconic showband. The Miami will take you through the joyous dancehall days of the 1960’s and “Spit On Me Dickie” to the tragedy in 1975.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to dance but above all, you’ll have an amazing night out!

Gaiety Theatre

For 142 years The Gaiety Theatre has given the people of Dublin opera, musicals, drama, revues, comedy, concerts, dance, festivals and pantomime. Amid the laughter and tears, through times of war and times of affluence, The Grand Old Lady of South King Street has remained a vital and ever changing expression of Irish culture and Irish society. Long home to the familiar faces of Maureen Potter, Niall Toibin, John B. Keane, Anna Manahan, Des Keogh and Rosaleen Linehan, whose bronze handprints, are set into the pavement in front the theatre, together with those of Luciano Pavarotti and Brian Friel, are testament to the longstanding association these great artists have had with Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre.
