Blacktye Wedding Band
Press ‘Play’ and the evening of entertainment begins.

We are the precious gem in the Irish wedding industry, the fun hotcake that have been keeping weddings buzzing in recent years. Blacktye have worked with some of Europe’s most successful and with over 20 years’ experience in entertainment, an explosive performance is always on the cards.

From Sinatra to Kings of Leon to modern day giants like Rihanna and Bruno Mars, Blacktye move from song to song effortlessly.


To put the cherry on top of a fantastic night, we’ve got a professional DJ in store who will take over from Blackye and paint the night red. The DJ service is provided by Darragh from the band.

Darragh’s main objective as DJ is to keep guests enthused, the dance floor full and to build on the energy the band created earlier in the evening.

He commences immediately after band play their last note ensuring the party fever continues late into the night.

by Niamh and David on Blacktye Wedding Band
Fantastic band, you need these guys at your wedding!
Date of Wedding: 12th September 2020

Hands down the best wedding band I've ever seen, Blacktye are very talented, energetic and dynamic musicians.

They played at our ceremony, reception and for the evening and the range of songs that they could play was incredible. We asked for a very specific song for walking down the aisle and they pulled it off with ease. It sounded amazing, exactly like the original song.

I was so impressed with Darragh's professionalism throughout, he was incredibly supportive and went over and above to help us during a very uncertain and at times challenging period (organising a wedding during COVID-19), that really meant a lot to us.

Blacktye kept everyone on the dance floor for the entire night and somehow managed to get the whole wedding party into a conga line - which was definitely one of the most memorable moments of the night.

They read the crowd expertly and they catered for all ages even the kids.

People are still talking about them weeks later, they're fantastic!

Thanks guys for everything :)

by Tim & Elaine on Blacktye Wedding Band
You guys were amazing
Date of Wedding: 29th June 2018

Just a quick thank you once again to Blacktye for coming out and playing for our wedding on 29th in Cloughjordan! You guys were amazing. While the fine weather and venue probably kept a few outside, the hard core absolutely loved it.
We both loved your enthusiasm and tunes and have also had great feedback from guests. We particularly liked the dirty dancing jack up.
All the best!
Tim and Elaine

by far the best band I have ever seen
Date of Wedding: 1st June 2018

We booked Blacktye from Australia. We never got to see them perform live but we took a risk and my goodness did it pay off. Darragh was helpful all the way through and I felt very relaxed.

Guys -

You are by far the best band I have ever seen. A group of seriously talented musicians who are flawless. The mix of male and female voices, and the unexpected rapping was a treat. You got everyone on the dance floor and knew exactly how to work the crowd. Our guests haven’t stopped talking about the band. You had amazing interaction with the crowd and were the icing on the cake! You truly made our day and we will forever be grateful.

We booked them for the drinks reception, band and DJ. Thank you for everything. You have been so easy to deal with from start to finish.

All our love

Levi and Paul

We will come to your gig when we are next home.

100% recommend to anyone
Date of Wedding: 16th Feb 2018

My husband and I were lucky enough to book Darragh and the gang for our big day last week. They were so great that we felt sad to leave the reception to have to go and get our photos done, was too busy enjoying the music! All of Blacktye are just so friendly and accommodating, almost wish I could do it all over again just to hear them play. Would 100% recommend to anyone, they are worth every penny! Thanks again xx

Date of Wedding: 28th December 2017


Blacktye for a great night you had everyone up on the floor dancing. All our guests commented that the music was brilliant and we definitely agree.

Claire and Stephen.

by Angela & Kevin on Blacktye Wedding Band
haven't danced like that in ages
Date of Wedding: 29th October 2017

Hi Darragh,
I just wanted to say a big thanks on behalf of myself and Kevin! Everyone has been saying how good you guys were (unfortunately it appears we fed them too much and it therefore took a while and several drinks before they hit the floor!). I had a great night - haven't danced like that in ages and my legs ached the following day (the joys of ageing - you can still dance like you're 20 but wake up feeling 60).
Anyway thanks again!!

by Emma & Ewan on Blacktye Wedding Band
