Who can forget the smash hit “Man On The Moon” – the song that took BALLYHOO to the top of the charts in 1981, and is still going strong.

The Irish Rock ‘n Roll Band BALLYHOO needs no introduction! Having dominated the SA Music scene since the 70’s, the legendary band is back on the run with a newly reformed outfit with the addition of Ralph Martin (the guitarist who was part of the “Man on the Moon” era).

BALLYHOO has an inspiring new energy on stage and, with their vocal strength and versatility, is set on recording new material and performing for exclusive events across South Africa, including Durban and Pietermartizburg, as Fergie Ferguson has revealed!
