Alan Francisco's Entertainment Buzz


CLUBSOUND were part of the Ulster heartbeat, they played all through the troubles helping people forget their worries until their final split in 1995 when they all agreed to go their separate ways.

Well they are back, with all their old favourite routines, ‘Shankill Airways’, ‘The Ballymour Grousebeaters’, ‘Andy McFadden’ and so many, many more.

George Jones, one of the best loved voices on the iarwaves, Barry Woods, a seasoned producer of television and radio commercials, David McNight, a professional kitchen designer and Alan McCartney, who sings with his wife Janet as the duo De Luxe plus the only new Clubmate, guitar player Jimmy Black of Chapter 5, are looking forward to entertaining you the way they used to.

Clubsound are appearing in the Ramada Hotel at Shaws Bridge on Friday 26th May and at the Clarion Hotel in Carrickfergus on Sunday 28th May. Admission to both venues is a bargain £12.50 and tickets are available from each of the hotel receptions.


NEWTOWNABBEY Borough Council have again pulled out all the stops to give local country music fans a mouth-watering country feast on Friday 7th April and Saturday 8th April at the Ballyearl Courtyard Theatre.

Radio Ulster’s Hugo Duncan will be appearing on both nights along with Showband Legend Frankie McBride. They will be joined on the Friday night by Ireland’s Country Queen Philomena Begly and on the Saturday night by Susan McCann. Tickets are only £12 and are available from Ballyearl Courtyard Theatre, 585 Doagh Road, Newtownabbey. Ticketline (028) 9084 8287.
