Great Night Out
Date of Wedding: 27/05/2023

Great band, kept everyone on the dancefloor from the start to the finish of the night. The rave classics was the ideal way to finish! All our guests have been singing their praises since. Daniel ODonnell will never recover!

Ye were excellent
Date of Wedding: 15 September 2019

Will, I just wanted to drop a line and thank you for the excellent music at our wedding on 15th September. Our wedding co-ordinators first words were asking us where we had found the piano player as he was playing up a storm in the reception area – and the wedding guests hadn’t even arrived! As for the main band – ye were excellent. Our guests had a ball and we have some great photos with the sunglasses and ‘instruments’. Thanks so much. Will recommend the band to everyone. Ann Marie

So Will, you were the official star of the show on Friday.....EVERYBODY said how good the "bumble Bees" were at the wedding and how the dance floor wasn't empty for even a second!!! There were some awesome moments and great song choices!! My ankle is still black and blue after my dance off with the best man and his suit trousers are destroyed from his slide across the dance floor but it was all completely worth it-:) We both really appreciate all your work In the build up to the day and also your help with the music for the ceremony etc! We will be recommending you guys to anyone who will listen!!Thanks again!Gemma and Stephen

We will definitely be recommending!
Date of Wedding: 06 April 2019

Hi Will ,Hope things are good, Mary and I are writing to thank you for everthing that you and the lads done for us on our wedding day in the Ballina Manor Hotel. The cocktail reception that you played gave a wonderful atmosphere to the afternoon and everyone is still talking about the brilliant performance from you and the band for the evening dancing. The songs you played were brilliant and the way the band got the crowd of all ages to interact on the dancefloor was amazing. The dance floor was packed all night. It was also great to have a fellow local lilywhite up on stage.Thanks for ambushing me and my brother for the dance off but the crack everyone got out of it was brilliant. It looks brilliant on our wedding dvd and also for Mary and I to sing a song with you and the lads on stage was special for us.Thanks again Will for everything and look forward to see you and the lads perform again soon. We will definitely be recommending Bumblebee Honey for anyone we know getting married.Best regards to you and the lads.

So happy!
Date of Wedding: 28th July 2018

Our Wedding Band Bumblebee Honey was absolutely amazing.
From playing for our guests as they arrived to the hotel to the end of the DJ set the dance-floor was full as promised. Everyone has mentioned how great the music was and we were delighted with all our requests that they played especially all the extra dances they included in the set.
They also learned our first dance song from scratch in a short period of time and it was brilliant. We were so happy with it.
Thanks again so much. Will Ward from Bumblebee Honey has been excellent to deal with and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone who wants great music at their wedding or event!
