The Impact Showband (Cork)

Related: Fontana Showband, Taste

Famous as Rory Gallagher's first band. The Impact were originally known as The Fontana Showband. There is an Impact Showband L.P. regularly for auction on eBay, which was made after Rory left the band. If it's described as 'featuring Rory Gallagher' it is untrue.
