Gina, Dale Haze, and The Champions formed in 1973, the Cork-based band took the dancing scene by storm in the late 1970s and early 80s with 12 chart hit singles and several best-selling albums. The Band quickly became Ireland’s top attraction with record breaking attendances at dances and concerts.  Amazingly, 50 years on the original Band members, Gina, Pat, Mossey, Eddie & Tony still perform together at sell out shows. Sadly, Dale Haze passed away suddenly in 2020, his colleagues continue to remember him on stage.

2023 looks to be a very exciting year for fans and band members alike as the band gear up to celebrate 50 years on the road bringing joy through music and dance to the hearts of many.  To mark this monumental milestone, Gina and The Champions plan to take fans on a ‘trip down memory lane’ by announcing a Nationwide 50th Anniversary Tour. To coincide with the tour, preparations are being finalised for the release of a very special Limited Edition CD set, ‘Fifty Songs for Fifty Years’ featuring all of their many hits.

Matching their live success with industry recognition, the band received countless awards and accolades over the years,1979 proved to be a monumental year for the band, firstly with the release of one of their 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, a ‘feat’ they repeated many times over the following years.

Along with a consistently active touring schedule, ‘Gina, Dale Haze, and the Champions’ made innumerable television appearances both in Ireland and Britain over the course of their lengthy career.  Appearances on Gay Byrne’s famed ‘Late Late Show’ were a regular occurrence, performing many of their hits such as, ‘The Greatest Lover’, ‘Give Me back my Love’, ‘Dreams are Good Friends’, ‘Drunken Sailor’, ‘A Real Good Feeling’ and many more.

On Sunday 29th October Gina & The Champions bring their 50th Anniversary Tour 2023 to the Theatre Royal Waterford where you can relive their many Hits and Memories.
