The Boomtown Rats: the horn sections...
Permalink  
 


Hello,

 

I realise that this is a bit of a niche question but does anyone know the size and who the musicians were of the various live horn sections the Rats had over the years?

I'm thinking mostly in live concerts

Backing musicians included:

 Andy Hamilton pictured Copenhagen 1980gettyimages-90432632-1024x1024.jpg

 Dave McHale

Guy Barker

Andy Duncan

Pete Thomas 

Gary Barnacle

I think most of these guys appeared on tours with the Rats from Mondo Bongo onwards.

 Yeah ,saw that as I was checking this the other day. Anyone know the name of the guy I've circled in yellow. He's in lots of the live videos but not sure of his name? Photo is from Self Aid Dublin 1986 and features band, some road crew and backing musicians. 20211216_213914.jpg
