The band was brought together by Limelight Entertainment five years ago. Following on from their hugely success band Harlequin, Hot Topic was founded to offer another exclusive option to discernible wedding couples Nationwide.

During this time, a number of talented professional musicians have performed in this popular function band. Fronted by PJ Wall and Doireann O’Connor Hot Topic wedding band is one of the most exciting bands around and offerings something unique and exclusive for your wedding.

Hot Topic Wedding Band

From start to finish this is the most enjoyable part of the entertainment for your guests and we keep the floor full from beginning to end, consistently reading the audience and knowing when to bring out the waltzes etc. We do try not to overload your audience with any one particular type of music so the evening really is a good balance with lots of variety so as not to exclude individual guests. Our parties are well planned in advance, in terms of what is happening and when. You’ll choose the components you’d like included in the entertainment and we make it happen. This performance lasts two and a half hours.

After Wedding Band DJ

Our DJs (we have two options) can continue the party after the band finishes. He’s a great DJ and always puts on a top-class show. (This is not a plug-and-play type service). He will keep the dance floor buzzing and entertain your guests into the small hours and ensure a seamless transition between band and DJ. The curfew for the conclusion of our DJ service is 2.30 am.

Pre-Dinner Drinks Reception

Drinks Reception: Upon arrival we could deliver a really cool set, possibly in the foyer, for your arrival. The volume of this element of the entertainment is nice and low so that your guests can mingle, natter and catch up. We can also organize piano recital/or rythm and blues trio music for your arrivals reception or dinner if you so wish. Samples of our reception music can be found on our website.

Ceremony Music

For ceremonies we offer a unique and intimate service from Doireann our female vocalist and our piano player Padraig. Usually we work with one of entertainment company’s female vocalist accompanied by either a pianist or guitarist to perform a beautiful rendition of modern, gospel, hymn or contemporary songs depending on the venue. Everything here is completely customised to suit our clients requirements.

Residents Bar Acoustic Session

What better way to round off the night than a traditional sing along in the residents bar. We will keep the party going until 4am and send all of your guests off to bed in style (and hoarse). This is a two person acoustic session with loads of interaction from your guests and any guest singers who might be feeling confident on a song!

Had the band for our wedding back in March. The guys travelled the whole way to Inishowen (very top of Donegal)�We all had a ball. Ben the lead singer was fantastic. Only regret is we didn't spend more time on the dance floor.. would do it all again.

The music speaks for itself
Date of Wedding: December 19th, 2015 | Thomas Prior Hall

in terms of the band we were really happy with them the sound was fantastic and the lead vocalist was tremendous. They played a great range which was great and overall everybody really enjoyed it. They got people up dancing from the start and that’s how it continued so that was great. So in terms of perfecting the show, I would say more of the same and let the music speak for itself.

…wasn’t expecting a concert! Wow
Date of Wedding: Killashee House, April 2015

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a great night in Killashee. Everyone was raving about the band from young to old. My gran even asked if that was the guy from the commitments TV show!! Thanks again for all your efforts and I'd be happy to write a testimonial or recommend you to anyone at our wedding that asks about the band.

Date of Wedding: The K Club | July 2014

Further to my telephone call earlier today, I would just like to confirm my thanks for an excellent evening last Thursday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves as was evident by the amount of people still on the dance floor at the end of the evening!

I will certainly recommend your band to my colleagues and I am sure I will be in touch with you again four our first wedding anniversary!!!

Just had to write to say how delighted we were with Hot Topic at our wedding last Saturday. Not only was the music excellent but you all looked extremely smart. Everyone has commented on the excellent music and I would have no hesitation in recommending you

dancing all night
Date of Wedding: New Years Eve | 2013-2014

I just wanted to thank you again for the fabulous music you provided for our daughter Elizabeth’s Wedding the other week. Everybody has commented on the high quality of the music and how wonderful it was to listen and dance to. Having looked at the video, I can see how much fun everyone was having.

As you know we had a number of guests from the world of show business and they were full of enthusiasm and phoned afterwards to say how great the band was. They also appreciated both the high quality of the musicianship and the fact you played pianissimo so beautifully during dinner, enabling our guests to chat amongst themselves and yet still hear the wonderful music. It was also really good of you to join in the fun and accompany Ron Moody and play the pieces we asked for. You can be sure that the next time we have anything to celebrate, you will be the first person we phone.

With many thanks for your friendly co-operation throughout and do please thank everyone in the band. What was really good was that you were able to span the age group so successfully that we ‘oldies’ enjoyed it every bit as much as the younger guests, who we know could have gone on dancing all night.
