Harlequin’s wedding entertainment lasts THREE HOURS, that’s 50% longer than most other wedding bands in Ireland. including refreshment break. Most of our work is performed as a six-piece band (with saxophone, drums, bass guitar, lead guitar, trumpet, clarinet and piano/keyboards/synths). If your budget allows and you don’t feel like considering disco as part of your entertainment Harlequin can keep the live music going for up to 4 hours.

We offer a very personal and positive ‘planned’ show for each client. Getting to know our client is the key to being able to deliver an EXPERIENCE that represents the personality you have envisaged for your wedding night celebration.

Our music selections at your wedding represent both your personal tastes and the tastes of your entire guest-list without alienating any single on-looker. With this in mind we chose songs from every genre that appeal to young and old alike.

Knowing where and when to play what? This is an important skill we use when planning the structure of your evening wedding celebration and proceedings. From time to time during the evening our front-man Shane may call the attention of the guests in order to deliver a positive ‘planned’ entertainment tit-bit (Maybe a performance by a special guests or simply wishing Happy Birthday to ‘Aunty Mary’). This type of entertainment works very well, textures your wedding evening and helps keep the guests involved and interested.

Harlequin - Ireland's Exclusive Wedding Band SETLIST

Set List

Our ever-increasing song REPERTOIRE (close to 10,000 songs believe it or not!) is totally diverse and flexible. We don’t use fixed set-list for any event. For us this doesn’t make sense as every crowd is different and the music choice for every party represents the individual personalities of the people present, not least of all the couple. Getting to know our client is key in this regard (both before & during the event). Also, monitoring the guests present and knowing from where and what backgrounds they come helps us greatly in filling the floor and giving your guests the music they want to hear and dance to. And if you can think of songs that we don’t already know we’ll learn them especially for you – no limits…

We’ll play anything from ACDC, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Prince, The Killers, The Kings of Leon, Davis Guetta, LMFAO, One Direction, Take That, The Wanted, Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones, Toto, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Van Morrison, The Police, Fleetwood Mac, Dire Straits, J-LO, Calvin Harris, Flo Rida, Beyonce, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, The Beatles, The Kinks, The Stone Roses, Blur, Oasis, Radiohead naming but a few… And our repertoire includes most chart-hits from since the 1960 and most hits from the Rock, Pop, Soul, Country, Swing and Dance genres. We also play every cheesy wedding song ever written… If that’s your taste of course!!!

Just want to say a massive thank you to all the band. You kept the party pumping all night. It was more than we could of dreamt of. The special care and time Shane took to get to know myself and Conor was above and beyond what we expected!! We’ll never forget it and more importantly our wonderful wedding guests won’t forget!!!

Shane and the lads thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You really got the dance floor rocking from start to finish, you guys were amazing. Thanks again

Hi Shane, Just a quick post to thank you guys for the wonderful night you gave us all on Wednesday. Everybody was raving about you as usual. Thanks so much for making the evening so very special. And thanks for the Radiohead and Rolling Stones. Gerry and Mam were enthralled of course. Will definitely only recommend you guys from now on…

Thanks a mill Shane McGrath for playing at our wedding on 3rd November, you were AMAZING and lots people still talking about you, xx


Hi Shaney, please pass on our thanks to all involed in providing music last night. I can’t tell you how many people said it was the BEST wedding band ever and the age range was from 84 to 4. The dance floor was never empty and Shane played a stormer. I thought we would get to say a proper goodbye and ‘thank you’ but we were all a bit ‘tired’!!!! I have no problem recommending Harlequin to anybody and wish you and the band all the very best for 2011. You are worth every penny.

Huge thank you to Shane and all of Harlequin for rocking the dance floor in Springfort Hall on Saturday night. Ye really made our wedding day a great celebration and memorable for everybody. So glad we booked you guys. And Happy New Year to you all too!

Shano Shano Shano,
What can I say except to say that we had a fantastic night on Stephen’s night at the Hamlet Court. Forgetting the stress I can’t believe everything went so incredibly well mostly thanks to u. We spent two yrs bigging up the band and I have to say you didn’t let us down at all. it was unbelievable. We wanted a band that would be memorable and that’s exactly what we got. Everyone is raving about it. We loved it – such fun and energy. You really are a genius Shane. How your not a millionaire fronting massive bands and selling out concerts ill never no but take comfort it the fact u made our wedding the best night of our lives. Harlequin dose exactly what it says on the tin: ‘best night of your life’!!!! You can use that slogan lol

Is there anyone on here who is left with the horrid task of having to plan and book the office Christmas party?
Well, fear not! Make yourself popular with all your colleagues and book Harlequin for the big night.
There are some available spots but they are going fast so get in there quickly (I know...already).

Make your work Christmas night out a night to remember and talked about at the water cooler all year round and then some ;)

the band were phenomenal
Date of Wedding: 31st August 2018 - Meyrick Hotel

I don't have a direct email address for Shane but I just wanted to fire you a quick mail that you may pass onto him thanking him from us for an absolutely amazing night. The band were simply unbelievable. Since the wedding we've met so many of our guests that have been raving about how good they were.

It's great to look back on some of the clips from the night to see how good it was and how everyone enjoyed themselves. We almost broke the dancefloor (literally!) so you can take that as a testimonial!

Thanks again,

I'd like to second this - Shane is a stand-out front man and the band were phenomenal. So many compliments on how they kept the party going from all attendees of all ages! Our videographer said they were the best band he'd ever seen and the energy on the dance-floor was unbelievable!

I have to admit we had high expectations after attending a wedding where Harlequin performed a few years back and we weren't disappointed. They were simply amazing.

Please pass on our thanks to all the crew - we were the August 31st booking at the Meyrick in Galway :)

Best Regards,

Without a doubt the best wedding band around
Date of Wedding: 20th July 2018 - Great Southern

Well guys where do we start with this thank you!?
The band was always going to be THE most important part of our wedding, coming from a family who love their music!The very first & only other time we heard you guys play we both said if we are ever getting married this is the band we want playing...we weren’t even engaged at the time nor thinking about it🙈 You guys were the first thing we booked after the venue and man were we delighted when you were available on our date, we couldn't believe our luck but we were willing to change our date if needed!! (we also were so very grateful for the MASSIVE favour ye did us by offering us that discount 😊)

But you guys went far and beyond all our expectations, the craic was absolutely mighty and the dance floor was not empty at any stage! Ye kept the crowd wanting more and if it was allowed the floor probably would have still been full at 7am!! Our wedding was rocking with you legends!!!The atmosphere was electric and everyone was RAVING about you all night and still are!!!!!...... ye did not disappoint 😊

We also wanted to thank you for the kindness & patience ye showed our 2 year old son, Harry! We’ve seen videos of him rocking the dance floor and warming it up for us before we came out for the first dance 🤣🙈

Shane to you personally we honestly cannot express how grateful we are to you, could you please bottle up some of your energy and send it our way🙏 you are AMAZEBALLS, please never change 💜

Everyone was and still are raving about you guys, we’ve both received messages as have our families asking for the name of the band you guys made that much of an impression!!!
Without a doubt, hands down definitely THE best wedding band there is around 😊

We know yer reputation is already fantastic but if you would like us to write a review, vote anywhere please let us know as we will be shouting from the rooftops about how amazing ye are 😊
Apologies this thank you has taken so long🙈

Thank you all so much again for rocking our wedding💜

Shane, Yvonne and Harry

Really can’t recommend them enough
Date of Wedding: 9th December 2017

There couldn’t be a better wedding band out there. We got married on the 9th December in Westport and it couldn’t have went better largely due to Shane and all the gang in Harlequin. They had everybody buzzing on the dance floor throughout the night right till the end. They made it their business to get in touch with us weeks prior to see what we looking for music wise and were just so professional and friendly. Really can’t recommend them enough. Thanks guys for everything!

Everything was pure class
Date of Wedding: 26th August 2017

Harlequin played at our wedding on the 26th August 17 and there aren't enough words in my vocabulary to describe how amazing they were.
True professionals from the start to finish and worth every cent. Everything was pure class, the staging, the lighting, the musicians. The front man Shane is gifted at what he does. He knows exactly how to interact with a crowd and get everyone on the dancefloor. Our dancefloor was packed the whole night and everyone raved about the band to us. If you are considering hiring Harlequin for an event you will not be disappointed. Thanks again guys xx
