The Boherbuoy Band used the bandstand on Sundays, and the Chronicle printed their selections in advance.


Popular as ever was Franz von Suppé's Light Cavalry Overture and Rossoni's William Tell Overture. Two hours, from 4 to 6pm, was the duration of the concert, which was received with considerable acclaim.

the band on tape



The Boherbuoy Band, in 1989 released a stereo tape of a number of a selection of their music. This was the Band's first, and only to date, official tape.


The Boherbuoy in 1989 had reached a peak of musical talent. All the conditions were right. The Band made a day of it and travelled to Dublin where they were recorded in the RTE studios.


The tape shows the different sorts of music the band plays, for the enjoyment of its audiences and players.


The tape includes: The March and Procession of Bacchus, by Delibes; The Rhythm of the Winds, Erickson; Broadway Showstoppers Overture; March form Aida, Verdi and A Caribbean Cameo, by Sharpe.


The tape, which lasts about three quarters of an hour, has a cross-section of many of the types of music available and written for Brass and Reed Band.
