Biography

The Emerald Showband was an Irish 1960's showband from Limerick, around lead singer Ger Cusack (c 1942 - 3 March 2019).

The Irish showband is a dance band format which was popular in Ireland mid-1950s to the mid-1980s; though some showbands have survived until the present day. The showband was based on the internationally popular six- or seven-piece dance band. The band's basic repertoire included standard dance numbers and covers of pop music hits. The versatile music ranged from rock and roll and country and western songs to traditional dixieland jazz and even Irish Céilí dance, Newfie stomps, folk music and waltzes. Key to a Showband's popular success was the ability to perform songs currently in the record charts. Some bands also did comedy skits onstage.
