The Harry Boland Dance Band in Waterford
was the foundation stone of the Royal Showband.
Harry Boland invited a few local lads to join him and play some gigs at the Fisherman’s Hall in Dunmore East. Michael Coppinger (tenor sax), Charlie Matthews (drums), Jim Conlon (guitar) and pianist Gerry Cullen were first to join and before long they were joined by Tom Dunphy on double-bass. The other members were Jimmy and Johnny Fardy.
