Local bands featured at the Calypso


The Calypso ballroom was the place many Lurgan bands made their appearances back in the 1960s.

Groups like the Victoria Sinners, C. C. Riders - just returned from a successful tour of Scotland - and The Impact were just some of the names featuring in 1967.

Top group The Leprechauns were in the ballroom over Easter that year and played to a packed house as well as backing the Searchers in Banbridge.
