A night of fantastic performers!  Rock Radion Northern Ireland present a storm of a show featuring the PAT McMANUS BAND.  Pat McManus is widely well known for being the lead guitarist for the classic Irish rock band THE MAMAS


He and his band have been doing a tour along with non-other than ANDY POWELL, the lead vocals and guitarist for WISHBONE ASH.

To kick the night off was TRUCKER DIABLO.  Sadly the original support act MILLION DOLLAR RELOAD could not perform due to illness, so the Trucker boys filled in their shoes. 

Trucker Diablo are one of Northern Ireland’s newest leading rock bands.  With their debut album “The Devil Rhythm” not only featuring RICKY WARWICK of THIN LIZZY and THE ALMIGHTY, but the album has just been featured in CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE. The group played such great tracks from the album, such as “Voodoo”, “Big Truck” & “Drink, Beer, Destroy”.


Pat McManus hit the stage next.  Playing tracks from his latest album “Walking Through Shadows”, which features a “Greek” Bazooka.  Also performing tracks from his previous album “2pm”, along with classic Mamas Boy’s tracks that got the crowd going!


When Pat was done it was time to bring out Andy Powell.  Armed with his signature flying V, the dynamic duo blow the roof off the Belfast venue.  Performing some new songs which they wrote together, along with some Wishbone Ash tunes.


The lads finish off the night with a cover of Rory Gallagher’s song “Tattooed Lady”.

An 11 out of 10 performance from everyone!  But to be honest, 11 out of 10 is too small a rating!
