Profile:

“The Miami Beat for Dancing Feet - Filling Dance Floors for Forty Years” 

Miami Showband legends, Des Lee and Barry Woods, are two of the most iconic names of the great Irish Showband era. For decades, they consistently filled every dancehall and marquee in every village, town and city in Ireland and thrilled capacity audiences across The UK and America.   

From the Sixties, The Miami Showband was consistently voted “Ireland’s Top Band” by the readers of Spotlight and Starlight magazines and by 1975, with more top-ten hits than any other band, they stood on the brink of major success in America. However, fate intervened in the early hours of July 31st, 1975 as they travelled home from a gig up north and wrote The Miami Showband decisively into modern Irish history. 

The band reformed towards the end of ’75 and experienced an unprecedented popularity which was repeatedly described by the Press as “Miami-Mania” but, within a year of reforming,

On August 1st, 2005, they both returned to Ireland for the now legendary “Miami Showband 30th Anniversary Memorial Concert” at Vicar Street which the late, great, music impresario, Jim Aiken, described as the greatest Showband concert ever staged. On that unique occasion, the emotional reception given to the surviving Miami Showband members by the capacity audience was unparalleled and those present will always remember that magical, summer night in Dublin.     

On September 16th 2008, The Miami Showband returned to Vicar Street for a historic concert to say “Thank You” to the Irish people for their love and support over three decades. The following day, on September 17th, they travelled north for a sold-out sister concert at The Grand Opera House in Belfast in a symbolic gesture to finally reunite their massive fan base North and South and all profits, from both concerts, were donated to the Children in Crossfire charity.
