After selling out recent shows in Dublin (Arthur’s Blues n’ Jazz Club) and The Hot Spot Music
Club in Greystones,, the legendary Rob Strong brings his band to The Royal Meath bar in
Navan on Thursday 30th March 2023. The Derry native, with the sensational blues/soul voice, is
celebrating an amazing 60 years on the road this year and as the title of his biography
suggests, is ‘STILL GOING STRONG!’
Rob Strong started out in the Showband era when he fronted the iconic Plattermen band from
Omagh in the late 60s and early 70s, frequently packing out huge local venues such as the
Beechmount Ballroom in Navan and The Abbey Ballroom in Drogheda.In the 70s nobody in
Ireland personified the raw energy of rock blues and soul music like Rob Strong . Rob is known
as ‘The Godfather of Soul’ and was once offered the chance of joining the world famous Deep
Purple band
Rob’s son, Andrew Strong, toured with The Rolling Stones, Elton John and Prince after he
starred as ‘Deco Cuffe’ in the smash hit movie The Commitments. Rob himself toured the UK
and Europe with the Commitments band and was vocal coach for both soundtrack albums from
the movie. Rob is revered in the music business as evident in these quotes from his website and from his biography written by Paul Holland, from Kells.
