It can only be a matter of time before an aspiring Anton Corbijn or Michael Winterbottom takes a big screen look at the Irish showband scene.

He or she could probably start by gathering some stories from the acts and audiences at Ireland’s Showbands – Do You Come Here Often?

This five night run in Dublin’s Helix from January 2nd is the 12th run for the showband retrospective and will feature the likes of Roly Daniels, Tony Kenny, Geraldine Brannigan, Brian Coll, Gene Chetty and Muriel Day and Earl Gill as well as Gerry Marsden from Gerry and The Pacemakers.
