Once again, well known DJ Chris Shortt, has been selected to entertain the Roses at this years gala event, The Rose Ball on Friday 19th August. However Chris is no stranger to this event having performed as “Rose ball DJ” for the last number of years!

“I am delighted to have been selected again to perform at the Gala Rose Ball Event, it was an honour some years ago to be asked to perform at the 50th anniversary Rose Ball and its an honour again to be involved in the biggest Rose selection event in Tralee’s Festival history…it shows I must be doing something right!!! This year is very special as Tralee hosts the semi-finals on Wed / Thurs before the Rose Ball on the Friday night. “Its a spectacular night as
the organising committee raise the bar each year to be even more special than the previous year… and they certainly do…I know, I see it each year!”

It is great to have followed bands such as Aslan, Paddy Cole, Abbaesque, Bjorn Again, Brass & Co etc over the years.This year in particular I think, Danny & Bryan and all in the local entertainment committee have surpassed themselves with the even larger entertainment line-up. I think the set-up in the Square will be very special and its fitting that the Festival now has its own HQ, the Rose Hotel which will be the centre of the Universe for 2

Watch out Tralee for Chris at the Dome again this year!!
