COUNTRY showband Crystal Swing are set to take to the stage for a night of glitz and glamour in the Woodlands House Hotel in Adare on Saturday October 8 at 9.30pm.

The three-piece band from Cork, consisting of Mary Murray-Burke and her children Derek and Dervla, have received worldwide attention for their YouTube hit sensation ‘He Drinks Tequila’.

Mary began her entertainment career eight years and formed Crystal Swing a number of years later.

Keyboardist, vocalist and musical director in the band, Mary accomplishes all with ease.

Lead singer Derek is also an accomplished guitarist. A man with a great love of the showband era, he takes his inspiration from legendary performers such as Brendan Bowyer and Brendan O’Brien.

Dervla has received several awards over the years for her performances in drama and singing and has also appeared on a number of occasions as a guest of Eileen Nolan at the Everyman Palace Theatre in Cork.

In April last year, they appeared on popular American TV programme The Ellen DeGeneres Show and have also performed numerous times on the Late Late Show.

Tickets can be purchased for €12.50 from the Woodlands House Hotel at 061 605100 or by calling Ray at 087 8218725.
