Crystal Swing at The Source, Thurles

crystal-swingTheir website and YouTube videos have attracted a quarter of a million visitors to date. They have re-visited and brought back to life the classic show band sound that made Joe Dolan, Brendan Boyer and The Miami Showband international stars. People of all age groups around the world are talking about the Burke family, who have gone from an unknown wedding band to several appearances on TV shows including the Late Late and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. They have sold out venues the length and breadth of the country. Now, The Source Arts Centre is proud to present the international phenomenon that is Crystal Swing for one night only!

A dream has come true for the unassuming trio Crystal Swing who, up to six months ago were practically unknown outside of Cork. With the success of their ‘He Drinks Tequila’ video, and an energetic cover of ‘The Hucklebuck’, they have become household names across the globe. Revitalizing an era of colourful sharp suits with a swinging nostalgia, that has audiences flocking to see them.

The Mammy, Mary Murray-Burke seems un-fazed in the limelight while daughter Dervla, commands the stage and belts out all time classic Country and Irish tunes. Son Derek is something else, with an explosive high-energy presence, he whips up a dancehall storm. Like a young Brendan Bowyer, his crazy antics will have the crowd screaming for more! So come along and get up close and personal with Ireland’s newest showband swingers – Crystal Swing. A great family night out is promised for all ages. Advance booking is advised folks; these tickets will be snapped up!
