Sonny Knowles concert a huge success
On Friday 12th August we took part in a fundraising concert in the Civic Theatre with the wonderful Sonny Knowles. The auditorium was packed and there was a great atmosphere as Sonny warmed up the crowd. Our Cadets then took to the stage and wowed the audience followed by our seniors who had them all singing and clapping along. The two bands then came together and received a standing ovation.
We would like to thank Sonny Knowles for giving up his time to do this concert for us (free of charge!) and also give a special thanks to Bridie Sweeney (former Mayor of Tallaght) for all her hard work in selling tickets for this event.
She's getting married in the morning...
All the members, committee and staff of the band would like to wish Caroline and Adrian the very best for their wedding tomorrow. We hope to see you both after out concert with Sonny Knowles. Hope you have a brilliant day and we will all be thinking of you.
