SOUTH East Radio DJ Stephen Dee, who died in December, was remembered at a fundraising night in aid of the Hope Cancer Support Centre.
Around 200 people attended the concert in the Talbot Hotel, which opened with a video message from friend Darren Holden of 'The High Kings' folk band.
The MC was Stephen's work colleague and friend Alan Corcoran. Among the performers were Brendan Keane, Shane Kenny, Paddy Murphy, Triona O'Reilly and Stephen Murphy.
The House Band comprising Tony Ryan (of the Tony Ryan School of Music in Oylegate), Richie Roche and Jim Murphy also entertained along with the Silent Mikes, who regrouped especially for the night, and the Mad Caps, who had everyone rolling in the aisles.
Door and raffle prizes were sponsored by Frank Hynes Jewellers, the National Heritage Park, the Waterford and Suir Valley Heritage Railway, Monart Spa, Pettitt's SuperValu and Ann Coppen Pharmacy.
The next concert will be held next Monday, March 24, in the Riverside Park Hotel in Enniscorthy.
On stage will be Theresa and the Stars, John and Leslie Dunne from Blue Lace, Triona O'Reilly, the Silent Mikes and the Mad Caps. Andrew Kenny from TG4's Glor Tire will make a special appearance.
Cry Before Dawn have donated some rare memorablia which will be auctioned on the night.
