We will be on-air a year in January so what better way to end our first year than with a tasty line up for our Christmas Party , We have managed to get the legendary Pat McManus along with his band to headline the event!
Pat McManus nicknamed "The Professor" for his incredible guitar skills (check out the videos below) started off his rock career in the Band Mama's Boys who rose to fame in the the early 80's and were spotted by the late Phil Lynnot to support Thin Lizzy on their farewell tour. Classic rock magazine have Mama's Boys at number 30 in their Cult Heros list you can read the piece they did on the band at the following page http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/news/cult-heroes-no-xx-mamas-boys/ . Pat has also played in various other bands including Celtus and Indian before releasing his solo albums and solo tours with The Pat McManus Band.
Having such a legend play at our Christmas Party is a great honour for Rock Radio NI , we have also got our friends from Last Known Addiction comming down to open up the night (they are one of Northern Irelands hottest acts at the moment) .
