Gregory Donaghey (front right) moved from
The Drumbeats to The Polka Dots and on to The Cadets
The Drumbeats, an eight piece showband from Lifford Donegal
Known throughout Britain as The Playboys,
this band always appeared as The Drumbeats in Scotland
due to the bad name earned by another group of Playboys who had
toured the Highlands a few years before.
The Drumbeats were good, the musical equals of Maurice Lynch,
and in Judy Murphy they possessed glamour and singing talent in abundance.
Judy's version of First Cut is The Deepest, the P.P. Arnold soul classic,
is still remembered for its spine-freezing emotional intensity.
