When: Saturday March 17, 2001

THE Irish Drovers foot-tapping music and sentimental ballads will be the toast of St Patrick's Day at Western Suburbs Leagues Club on Saturday.

The fast moving two-hour cabaret performance will also display a touch of the blarney from one of the world's most successful Irish show groups.

'We like to keep our audience entertained with a mixture of song, comedy, music and friendly repartee,' said Drover Myles Mooney. As the most frequently featured artists at Sydney's Hilton Hotel, this quartet of likeable and lively Irish lads have been guests on television and radio throughout Australia.

Celebrating their 20th year in show business, The Irish Drovers started life on Channel 9's Super Flying Fun Show a spot they maintained for five years.

The Drovers, as they are known to their fans, are a regular headline act in top clubs and showrooms around Australia.

All members of the group sing and among them play a guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, bass, harmonica and penny whistle.

They frequently entertain on the world's most prestigious cruise ship, the QEII. They are often flown to New York, Japan or London to commence various cruises.

The Drovers have also stayed close to the limelight as winners of an Australian Heritage Award for Excellence and several nominations for a Mo Award.

They have also just added their third album, The Irish Rose to their growing list of singles.

The complete Irish celebration will include a three-course meal with the live entertainment.

The Drovers will play in the Starlight Room at Wests with doors opening 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
