CELEBRITY WANNABE NIGHT - 14th December 2007
See bottom of page for pictures of night.
In a highly entertaining evening the very talented acts, albeit some more brave than talented according to the judges, entertained the packed crowd with a range of songs from seasonal through to country and rock. The judges, Stoney 'Cowell' Burke and Terry 'Walsh' Brennan were as enthusiastic in their criticism of te competitors as the acts were in their performance.
Master of Ceromonies, Kevin Kyng tied the entire show together, while all the acts entered into the spirit of the event and gave their audience an evening of pure brilliant entertainment.
'Demetri the Greek' opened the show with a traditional Greek dance - his high flying kicks had the audience cheering and he finished off with a well earned thirst quencher!
In the judges eyes 'The King' (Brendan Cullen) was the one that won all round praise for his rendition of 'One night with you'.
Father Ken followed with a great crowd pleaser'Santa Claus is coming to Town' and appropriately Santa Claus and Mrs Claus (PJ Kennedy and Janet Feeney) then took to the satge to sing 'Fairytale of New York'.
'Robbie's Angels' (Carrie McCracken, Jenny Delaney, Marcella Cullen, Shelly Keny, and Rosie Bennett) representing New Ross Celtic Women's soccer Team, sany 'Merry Christmas' to a full house, acknowledged a very polished act.
'The Gaffer' (Brad O'Neill, manager of the New Ross Celtic's Premier Team) then followed with 'Saturday Night At The Movies' before Kevin Dwyer donned his 'cowbou outfit' and won the crowd over with his rendition of 'Friends in Low Places'.
'The Deli Girls', Ann Foran, Helen Butler, Sarah Stafford, and Jordanna Wall, each dressed as the acclaimed Dolly Parton, then took to the stage and sang their praise of management with 'Working Nice to Five'.
The last act was the 'Singing Politician', Sean Connick, with 'Crocodile Rock', who wowed the crowd over with this great vocal versatility to hit all the difficult notes.
In the end the runner-up Kevin Dwyer had to raise his hat to eht eventual winners 'The Deli Grils'.
The contest was held in aid of New Ross Celtic, who would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone who bought ticket, the huge support of the people in the town and to Stoney Burke and Terry Brennan.
