Previous Clients: A Few Testimonials...

1) "...Thanks for playing at our wedding reception. I know we thoroughly enjoyed the evening and have received lots of comments from friends and family who thought you were great."

2) "...The music was just what we wanted, and it clearly went down a storm with the guests - we had an excellent night."

3) "...Guys, Thanks for playing our wedding in Bournemouth. It was an amazing set. Everyone has said how good you were and it really made the wedding. It was brilliant. Thanks again!"

4) "...Just a quick note to thank you and the rest of the band again for such a fantastic night last Saturday. I'm sure I left you in no doubt how impressed I was anyway, but I wanted to let you know that I've had non-stop calls and emails from our guests saying how brilliant they all thought you were."

5) "...Thank you so much for performing at my 40th. As I selected the group from the Internet lottery without ever seeing them play, I did run the risk of The Muppet Show band turning up, or worse… a no show. Credit must go to the booking agency website, with its customer testimonials, for my choice and like all the others I am so pleased that I chose this band. Communications were fluid and organisation was commonsensical; set-up was well orchestrated and the performance was fantastic, with a well segued set, easing guests onto the dance floor. When everyone I have spoken with since the party mentions how great the band was, it confirms that it wasn’t just my
'three sheets to the wind’ disposition that made the night so enjoyable. Thanks again."

6) "...We would like to say a special thank you for you playing at our wedding on the 5th March, you were BRILLIANT! Everyone enjoyed themselves and I think it will be a
talking point with our Irish family for years!"

7) "...I can't reiterate enough how please with choosing this band for our wedding. You guys were soooo good! Well, as for your toughest critics 'the many Irish' guests who attended our wedding. Their response was "where did you find an Irish band as good as you outside of Ireland!" So I think that's a pretty good testament! Put simply, you guys were simply the best."

8) "Please pass on our sincerest thanks to the band, they did an amazing job, and they really helped to get the party started. Most importantly everybody had a really great time, and they have all said it was a night to remember. Thanks again."

9) "Please can you pass on our thanks to the band who played at our parents 50th Anniversary party last night. They were excellent entertainment and everyone really enjoyed it. I hope they enjoyed the evening as much as we did, thanks again."

10) "I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the band for a fantastic night of music at Lynsey and Ed's wedding last sunday. They were a huge success with everyone especially the bride and groom, exactly what they wanted! There were lots of comments on how good they were, particularly Jim's voice. We even managed to get Ed's dad up, which is unheard of, but he is Irish so it must have got to him! I hope the band enjoyed it as much as we did. I hope I get to hear the band again one day and won't hesitate to recommend them. Thanks again"

11) "Hi guys, I know it's been ages since our wedding (14th September at Pangdean), but Emma and I wanted to give you all a belated and sincere thank you for your amazing set. It really made the evening what it was. Have a great Christmas and hope to see you playing in Brighton again soon!"

12) "I just wanted to send on a quick note to say a big thank you. Having the band play at our wedding topped the day off for us and for our guests."
Located in: Brighton, East Sussex

Playlists / Performance Info:

The band can vary in size between a duo and a six-piece, depending on what you need, and they usually play around 1hr40mins of music, with a break in the middle.

Their repertoire includes some fifty or so songs and tunes, including favourites such as: ‘Dirty Old Town’, ‘Whiskey in the Jar’, ‘Fairytale of New York’, ‘Fisherman's Blues’, ‘Wild Rover’ and many, many more. They can also sometimes do special requests, if given advance notice.

They supply their own equipment - unless otherwise specified - and additionally they can provide interval background music (this is NOT a substitute for a full-on disco!) to create a complete evening/afternoon of entertainment!!!
