In 1977, Luv Bug started as an amateur teenage band. 5 years later, they got themselves and went professionel. The band from Northern Ireland consisted of sister and brothers June (lead vocals), Hugh (bass) and Max (guitar) Cunningham along with Ricky Meyler (vocals and keyboards) and Majella Grant (drums). Their first single Red Light Spells Danger released in 1984 topped the Irish chart at #15.
Single after single followed until the band won the Irish national final in 1986 and as such went on to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest. Their entry You Can Count On Me finished in fourth place. Back in Ireland it reached second place on the chart.
In the late 1980’s the group released a few singles in the UK under the name Heart By Ice. In 1992, the once again took part in the national Eurovision selection, but failed to come back to the contest.
Luv Bug has continued a four member band, but is mainly available for private gigs. Their setlist includes cover versions and none of their own songs.
