"The book is a testament to Harry's sheer doggedness and resilience in coming up with an idea and sticking with it to its brilliant conclusion. Definitely a labour of love."
Eamonn Campbell of The Dubliners
"When Harry told me he was writing a book on the dance bands and showbands of Drogheda, I knew it was going to be a winner. This is the most important book on the history of bands from Drogheda ever written."
Tommy Leddy, Sound Shop & TLT Theatre, Drogheda
"I loved it. You did a terrific job recognizing all the fantastic
musicians we have had in Drogheda over the years. I had forgotten just how rich we were in fantastic music and the musicians who
created it. What a town full of talent. This
is the definitive book on the history of music in the town. Just think, generations from now our decendants will learn about their very
talented forefathers thanks to you Harry-Well done."
"This is a wonderful book featuring many extremely talented musicians from Drogheda. It contains loads of photos that I hadn't seen not only of my dad but also my grandfather Bill Reynolds, my uncles and my fathers' uncles, cousins and friends. I am so proud of my family!"
"My cousins gave my mother a copy of your book today and we were especially thrilled as my mother is in it.
Her name was Eileen Matthews and she sang with The Astoria Orchestra. It was lovely to see a picture of my mum (who is now 83) in her hey day.
This is a lovely book and I know it has brought a lot of happiness to my mum."
