The Rob Strong Band LIVE
- 6 Dec
- 5:45pm - 9:45pm
- All Welcome
Rob Strong, playing LIVE continuously for an incredible 55 years, brings his band to Tallaght’s Rua Red for the very first time!
He may be 72 years old this year but Rob Strong, as his name suggests, is still going strong! The Derry native with the sensational blues/soul voice, is celebrating an amazing 55 years on the road this year! From fronting The Plattermen in the 60s to The Rockets in the 70s, Rob is known as “The Godfather of Soul” and actually turned down an offer to join Deep Purple! His son, Andrew Strong, became world famous as he starred as Deco, in the smash hit 1991 movie “The Commitments”. After touring Ireland's finest theatres last year with Don Baker to huge acclaim, Rob continues to perform in this, his fifty fifth year on the road, with that same distinctive voice that saw him mesmerise audiences all those years ago!
