Charlie and the Bhoys are an Irish/Celtic band that were formed nearly three decades ago in the East End of Glasgow Barlanark. They branded themselves as the "No.1 Glasgow Celtic Band in the World". The band's name is derived from the nickname for Celtic Football Club, which most of their music celebrates. Celtic legend Billy McNeill gave the band its name whilst placing an ad for its performance in his pub McNeill's in the south side of Glasgow. At that time the band didn't have a name and Billy could only remember that one of the band's members was called Charlie. Since then, Charlie And The Bhoys have written more songs regarding Celtic Football Club than any other. Their most famous song, Willie Maley, was written by Mick Scanlon.
Famous Celtic FC songs by Charlie and the Bhoys include: Willie Maley, Raised on Celtic, Inter Milan, Bhoys Against Bigotry, Bye Bye Rangers, Tommy Burns, Johnny Doyle and the latest Bertie Auld song.
