Fans of Gene Chetty of the showband Gene and the Gents will be pleased to know that he has written a book telling his life story, from growing up in South Africa during the apartheid era to his music career as the lead singer with one of Ireland's top showbands.
Gene, or Dushy to give him his real name, has chosen to launch this book at his farewell concert which will take place at the Westville Hotel in Enniskillen on Wednesday 7th October 2015. During this concert Gene will perform all his hits from his showband career plus many more favourites, and will be backed by the fabulous Northwest Showband. Gene's showband career started in Enniskillen, and he says that he and the band always had tremendous support there over the years, so it's really fitting that he should choose to have his final concert there where it all began. Tickets for this memorable evening are available by contacting Eunan McCaffrey on 07548730567. The proceeds from the sale of the tickets will benefit Gene's favourite local charity Women Making Waves.
