The Danny Boys
(England) Manchester
The Danny Boys were Karen Hall [vocals] Craig Ferguson [Guitar] Mick Burton [guitar] John Ray [Bass] Vinny Carroll [Drums]. Formed in the mid 80's they played a distinct melodic pop reminiscent of the sounds of The Byrds and Postcard acts like Orange Juice and Aztec Camera. Based in Manchester they were a staple part of the pre baggy Manchester guitar scene. Toured with The Railway Children and released a single on Ugly Man Records - Days of the Week.

In 1988 they disbanded with Mick Burton becoming a restaurateur of Greens in Didsbury, Karen Hall becoming a big shot in Manchester advertising, Craig and Vinny went on to form Raintree County a similarly melodic and charming group. John Ray went into broadcast journalism where he currently works as the ITV News at Ten's man in Beijing.
