On a first name basis…

This is the title of Teenage Theme Night #21. Chosen by our all-teenage committee, the show will include songs with people’s names in the title.

So there will be huge variety – with the likes of Delilah, Jolene, Mandy and Valerie featuring strongly in the setlist.

Oh and we have 4 new emcees – really hard to pick in a year full of talent and characters but I’m looking forward to working closely with Eddie, Katelyn, Lisa, and Saul.

They follow in the footsteps of Penny, Daeneara, Callum, Tom, Joy, Julie, Conor, Eoin, Mackenzie, Ollie, Cormac, Evanne, Seán, Eania, Stephen, Nell and Joe (furthest right in pic below).

These guys (Dylan, Elyse, Sam, Maedhbh, Laura, Niamh and Joe) were the second group of 6th Yrs who took part in the Teenage Theme Nights – they left school in 2015 and I know that at least 3 of the 7 are playing music regularly, as are many more of the now young adults who left since.

As I hope will many of the current gang, who in fairness are determined to put on a great show despite everything. The show will happen on Facebook Live on the weekend after next. More details to come…
