Legendary Irish rock band The Bogey Boys - with Navan's Jimmy and Tony Smyth - have reformed and are playing selected dates around Ireland in March and April of this year, including Navan's Swan Lane.
The band was originally formed in Dublin in the late seventies. They immediately developed a reputation for being a blistering live act and toured and recorded constantly in the eighties. They toured with acts like Dr Feelgood, Wilko Johnson, Rory Gallagher, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, The Kinks, and Alvin Lee from Ten Years After.
They recorded their debut album 'Friday Night' in Windmill Lane in Dublin which spawned the eponymous radio hit single. The band, after signing to Chrysalis Records, relocated to London, where they had some famous residencies in the Marquee, Rock Garden and the Legendary Hope and Anchor in Islington.
Their appearance in Swan Lane Music Venue, is on Friday 4th May 2012, with tickets available E2 Music, Ardboyne Hotel or www.swanlane.ie.
