A capacity crowd at the Droichead Arts Centre enjoyed what has been described by many as the best Drogheda Brass Band concert in years, as their School of Rock-themed night brought the house down. Most of the credit for the success of the concert must go to musical director Michael Maher, who devised the concept. But more than that, he stole the show in the second half by arriving on stage as Freddie Mercury as the band played Another One Bites The Dust!
The band will be playing at Walshestown FC's Annual Sports Day. In addition to the DBB the club are providing games for the kids, stalls, food and tea/coffee stands. All are welcome for what promises to be a great day for all the family.
