The Rob Strong Band
The legendary Rob Strong brings his fabulous band and brass section to rock ‘ The Garden Party’ at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, Co Dublin on Saturday 9th July., performing all the hits, including the songbook of The Commitments!
The man known as The Godfather of Soul in Ireland has always enjoyed a huge following in the area playing residencies in The Cradle Rock and The Harbour Bar in Rush. In the early 1970s nobody in Ireland personified the raw energy of rock and blues music like Rob Strong, one of the most unique voices of the era. He even turned down the offer of joining the world-famous Deep Purple!
This year Rob is celebrating an amazing SIXTY years on the road and as the title of his recently released biography suggests, Rob is ‘STILL GOING STRONG’! The band also feature some of Ireland’s top musicians in Sean Behan on lead guitar, Salvatore Urbano on keyboards, Cormac Crowley on drums and a fabulous brass section.
