Spirit of Smokie - 2nd June

Spirit of Smokie coming live to Lough rea Hotel & Spa on Sunday 2nd June.

History of “Smokie” and “Spirit of Smokie”

Originating in the early sixties in the City of Bradford, England, school friends Ron Kelly, Chris Norman, Alan Silson and Terry Uttley formed their first line up; years on after several name changes and recording contracts the name “Smokie” was decided upon. This signaled a period of worldwide success for the band (with Pete Spencer replacing Ron Kelly on drums) whose records have sold today in excess of 30 million. In 1986 the band played their final concert and Chris Norman embarked on his successful solo career: This paved the way for a new look “Smokie” featuring two original members. They were joined by Dean’s father, lead singer Alan Barton. Alan’s voice, energy and drive for success re-established the name of “Smokie” as a worldwide touring and recording band. Sadly, tragedy struck in March 1995 with the death of Alan Barton who sustained fatal injuries following a motorway accident in Cologne (Köln), Germany.

In March 2008 a memorial concert was held for Alan Barton, fronted by his son Dean Barton, and “Spirit of Smokie” was born. Dean’s undeniable “Smokie” voice and on stage charisma completed what is now an established world class band. Like his father before him he added “je ne sais quoi” and was “the icing on the cake”, complementing the excellent present day musicians.
