My name is Bobby Harpur and have been gigging for the last 10 years (performing for 30 years!). I come from a musical family, my Dad was a member of the band The Memories, my brother the lead singer with The Harley’s and another brother in Los Angeles writing, producing and directing film. I have performed with the Camembert Quartet, with Route 66 Big Band at the Rose of Tralee, Farmleigh and many of the Theatres around the country. I have also toured Ireland with Dancehall Queues and Hucklebuck Shoes Tribute show to the Showbands in the early 00’s.
As well as all over Ireland I have performed in the UK, USA (IVACON Los Angeles and Las Vegas) and Europe (The World Television Awards, 2014). I run my own Vocal School, The Vocal Academy in Leixlip where I teach Vocal Technique and am certified with The Institute for Vocal Advancement.
I pride myself in never performing the same set list night after night. I am constantly learning new (and old!) songs to add to my set and like to read the room as the night progresses. My set covers a very broad mix of contemporary music all the way back to the 60s although on any given night I can have a 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, dominant set in order to engage the crowd on the night. One thing I do not perform however is traditional Irish music or ballads, unless they’re 80s power ballads!!! I am available for solo gigs and also as a two piece male/female combo with Sabrina O’Reilly called Voci.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dermot, I found dealing with DBS to be a very pleasant experience. Always Contactable with great recommendations to suit all tastes. Having great Contacts for Food and all the other extra’s required saved valuable time. I found it to be a very professional overall experience.
I would like to thank Dermot Brophy and his wife Susan for being good friends and having one of the BEST entertainment companies (DBS PROMOTIONS) in Dublin. They are very professional, honest and always put the best interest of entertainers, bands first and making sure that it’s the right act or band for the right venue. Great Job DBS PROMOTIONS keep it up.
What an amazing night here on Bank Holiday Sunday! With The awesome Frankie Says.
Dermot is a highly organised individual who provides a very professional and expertly run service.He knows how the entertainment business works and tailors his services to help his customers obtain maximum value. He gives excellent value and is extremely reliable.
Laura Long—5 star Used DBS promotions to book Gorilla Radio for our wedding. Not only were the band unbelievable but Susan & the team were great to deal with. Thanks for everything.
Booked our wedding band with Susan
Having worked with Dermot and Susan since they started their business, they have booked me and I have performed over 500 shows and counting. As an Entertainer, I know that when DBS handle a booking that everything will be as it should. The posters, information about time, venue etc. Is correct and everyone involved knows exactly what’s happening so I can focus on what I do best which is Entertaining people!!
I wish DBS continued success and have no hesitation in recommending them .
“WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH DBS FOR THE LAST NUMBER OF YEARS AND CANNOT RECOMMEND THEM ENOUGH. IN THAT TIME WE HAVE BUILT UP A SUPERB WORKING RELATIONSHIP AND OUR DEALINGS ARE ALWAYS PROFESSIONAL AND FUN. GIGS ARE ALWAYS CHECKED AND CONFIRMED THE WEEK OF THE DATE AND THE VENUES THEY BOOK US FOR ARE AMONG THE BEST IN THE COUNTRY. FESTIVALS, WEDDINGS AND CORPORATE EVENTS HAVE BEEN A PLEASURE TO DO WITH DERMOT AND SUSAN AND AS THEIR CLIENT BASE GROWS WE INTEND TO BE WITH THEM FOR A VERY LONG TIME”
