The Waterford Museum of Treasures is hosting “Hucklebuck Time”, a tribute to local showband hero, Brendan Bowyer, and artists who filled dance halls nationwide. The exhibition celebrates the showband generation.
The collection features photographs and memorabilia including a Royal Showband jacket from the 1960s and the saxophone used by the leader of the Royal Showband, Michael Coppinger, in the 1965 recording of their smash hit “The Hucklebuck”.
Brendan Bowyer was “delighted” to be in his native city for the opening. “It’s especially exciting to be here for the opening of this exhibition which takes us all back through the decades.”
“Hucklebuck Time” continues until August 20.
