July 1975 saw one of the worse atrocities of the Northern Troubles when the Miami Showband was ambushed when returning home from a playing in the Castle Ballroom in Banbridge, Co. Down.  Three of the band were killed and now one of the survivors, top bass player Stephan Travers, has written an account of that night in his book ‘The Miami Showband Massacre – A Survivor’s Search for the Truth.’  He spoke to Pat Coyle about life since then and how coming together again as the Miami Showband is helping to support ‘Children in Crossfire’.
