Sat 8th Oct 2022 – Gina & the Champions
Gina, Dale Haze and The Champions established themselves as Ireland’s top attraction in the late seventies and maintained that coveted position right through the eighties with record breaking attendances at dances and concerts, wherever they performed. Matching their live success with industry recognition, the band were awarded every accolade there is in the Irish music industry.
1979 proved to be a monumental year for Gina, firstly with the release of one of her biggest hits ‘The Greatest Lover’ and then to be decorated with two major awards; Gina being voted ‘Irelands Number 1 Pop Singer’ and the band being voted ‘Irelands Top band’. Amazingly this feat was to be repeated a number of times over the following years.
