01/03/1977 Showboat, Waterford Monk Fish I Didn’t get to the Showboat for the East Waterford rock group Monkfish last week. Accounts were good though some felt the lads were a little to progressive for city audiences at the moment. Their equipment I’m told must have cost the earth and was in good hands. They worked hard to please. They must have a lot of potential when Tom Treacy decided to have back. From Joe Dalton I learned that the programme for their next appearance will be more catholic and should appeal to a much wider audience.
Monkfish from Youghal coming Tuesday to the Showboat. They’re good.
23/04/1977 Katies Monkfish scored high with a large audience at Katies on Saturday last. So much so that Michaek Brennan has them back on Thursday May 5th. I reckon we will see a lot more of them during the summer.

June Katies and Showboat Monkfish suffered a setback last week with two of their members on the sick list. They played great stuff on Tuesday at Katies, kept going only on antibiotics but illness overcame them and they had to cry off the Showboat on Wednesday.
