The Story

Although we are not 1oo% sure when the band first started, we klnow they were on the road in late 1964. Based in Magherafelt, the band played all types of music and was the first band for "soon-to-be" country star, Brendan Quinn (guitar). The rest of the lineup included: Robin Averill (bass), Billy Cushley (guitar), Dave Quinn (drums), Tommy McCullough (sax), Des Kerr (sax) and Albert Kerr (unknown-perhaps trumpet).
