Arklow in "The Frames" for New Year

Irish Champs due to bring in the New Year in style.

 

Arklow Shipping Silver Band have the honour of playing in the New Year in the Olympia Theatre in Dublin as support band to the Irish Rock band The Frames. The show starts at 11.30 p.m. and the band will play until 12.15 a.m. at which time they will be joined on stage by The Frames. The bands program will include such hits as Batman, Strike Up the Band and of course Auld Lang Syne to bring in the New Year. This concert has been sold out for many months and this a testimony to the popularity of the Frames and is a high profile gig for the Arklow Band who as All Ireland Champions will be sure to make is a memorable occasion.

The band have been very busy over the last few weeks with Carol Services in the Catholic and Methodist Churches in Arklow and they will be performing on the Main Street in Arklow on Christmas Eve from 2.30 p.m. to round off their Christmas program of events.
