They also scored numerous other top 20 chart hit singles in Ireland during the 1970s. From 1962, Tommy played trumpet with Joe Dolan’s showband, The Drifters (not to be confused with the American group). In 1969 he and the other backing musicians left to form “The Times Showband“, with Jimmy added as lead vocalist. The brothers wrote their own compositions, which was unusual for a showband, and they scored numerous hit singles in Ireland. By 1973 they had their own television show and worked independently of the showband, leaving altogether in 1975. They retired in 1980 and In later years they had various business ventures, including promoting concerts in Ireland for various Irish and foreign artists.
