40 years at ‘The Top’ of their profession and still going strong!
These Dublin Lads are celebrating their 40th year in Showbusiness. Last year we released a Christmas Album, posed almost naked for a Charity Calendar, and released a track on the Water Rats Compilation Album called ‘The Gathering’, So you see we are still making headlines around the World. Brothers Con and Dec Cluskey, founder members of The Bachelors, were the first of the ‘Irish Boy Bands’ to invade Britains shores in 1962. We took on the might of British Groups and even managed to outsell ‘The Beatles’ in 1964.
We have played three weeks at the Opera House Blackpool September 2004. Played for Jim Marshall’s 80th birthday….yep, he supplied the famous wall of Marshall Stacks…loud? Yes! Played The Festival Hall in London for a unique choral concert and had the 200 strong Treorchy Male Voice Choir to back us….. Yes! We have appeared with almost every Show Biz legend in the world, from Judy Garland through to ‘Ant and Dec’, and Dec will tell you the story about how he got Christened....he is the only other Dec in the world. Tom Jones, Engelbert, Sammy Davis Jnr., Bob Hope, Morecambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper, Tony Bennett, Cliff, The Beatles, and even The Pope, we’ve shared a stage somewhere in the world at sometime with them all. Des O’Connor, Tom O’Connor - Brian Murphy, Glen Murphy. Cilla’s first big show? Lulu’s first big TV.....where did Freddie Starr get his big break? Michael Barrymore? Bobby Davro? Yes, we knew them all, know them all, and boy, can we tell the stories?
From ‘Ready, Steady, Go’ through to ‘Eastenders’, everyone has a tale to tell about ‘Con and Dec’.
