The Vampires were noted for their brilliant harmonies and arrangements of Beach Boys and Four Seasons numbers. Along with The Freshmen, they played support to The Beach Boys at their Dublin concert in 1967. Vocalist Tony Kenny left to front The Sands and was replaced by Mick Roche who was featured on their only single, "Do You Wanna Dance?"
