Gig Description

With their endless procession of amazing smash hit singles there was a pervasive theory that Slade were the Beatles of the 1970s, in the UK at least. The melody, the wit, the passion, the stomping rocknroll, the 4 distinct and equally loveable characters in the band…Suzan Holder, Noddy Holder‘s missis doncha know, is an established author, and earlier this year published a book that perhaps squares that circle… Suzan’s book ‘Shake It Up Beverley’ is the first ever book to be launched at the Beatles Museum in Liverpool. A novel where the protagonist, Beverley Wilson, is a fifty-something mother of three, who decides to re-enter the dating world after the death of her husband. With a subtext throughout of Beatles history and other ‘Pool based 1960s lore, the Fab Four are never far away from the action. You even get the privilege of entering the McCartney home in Speke and the Casbah Coffee Club!  Now, Suzan has published a second novel, this time with Elvis in the frame… Elvis Presley, not the guy down the chipshop… Yes… ELVIS IS BACK!  Suzan Holder takes us behind the gates of  Graceland in this tale of a young girl searching for the truth about her beloved Nana Rose’s link to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Journalist and TV producer Suzan once again weaves her love for music into a hilarious and heart-warming story that is uplifting and laugh-out-loud funny. Daisy’s grandmother makes a shocking deathbed confession about Elvis that triggers a journey to Memphis. Will Daisy solve the musical mystery and is a moody motorcycle cop called Blue the answer to her dreams? Pack your Blue Suede Shoes for a rockin’ rom-com. Suzan says: “I love that my books celebrate music and have been inspired by my own life experience of living in a slightly crazy, rock ‘n’ roll, rom-com world…some of the weirdest and funniest stories in the books really have happened to me!” Suzan Holder trained as a newspaper journalist and worked on regional and national newspapers before moving into TV. She produced a variety of television news and lifestyle programmes and was executive producer of ITV’s daytime network show ‘Loose Women’. Rock ‘n’ Rose & Shake It Up, Beverley  – published by One More Chapter, HarperCollins. Tony Bugbear will host tonite’s Q and A and interview with Suzan Holder. Buy the book, get it signed, chat to Suzan. Plus we have a wonderful addition to a an evening of Elvis and Beatles chat…a brilliant band who play numbers by both iconic acts in their set. We’re very pleased to welcome Rebel Aces to the Dublin Castle stage tonight to entertain you this evening with a couple of sets of prime, backbeat bangin’ boogie woogie rockabilly, joining the dots beautifully between Sun Records era King and Hamburg big beat Beatles… and beyond!
