Wedding Band Reviews
Wedding Band Reviews – Ireland November 2020
So by now you’ve probably settled on a wedding venue, and you’re at the dreaded “book a band” stage. And it’s a pretty big deal – the music, it’s the part that makes or breaks the evening/wee small hours part of your wedding celebration, so it’s worth the effort.
The advice we always give here is to go see the band play live, and preferably in a wedding setting – but if you’ve shortlisted a few, seen them live, and are still finding it hard to make a decision – hopefully we can help with that too.
The latest reviews as submitted by real actual couples.
While we’re proud to say that we are the only independent (not run by a wedding band or agent), and complete list of wedding bands Ireland has to offer – our online wedding band reviews feature allows our best wedding bands and entertainers to receive reviews from their latest clients, as well as submit the ones they receive where they they can supply proof that it’s a real person, and that a real wedding took place.
Below is a live list of the latest reviews received (and manually verified/approved) by our bands, and if you click on the band name (below the couple’s name) you’ll get straight to their page, so you can see the rest of their reviews, photos, videos, setlists as well as enquire (for free – no commission, fee etc).
Remember these are only the latest reviews we’ve received, we have a huge list of wedding bands on the site, many of whom have reviews on their pages. If you’re interested in viewing all the bands in your area, just choose your section below:
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 🙂
I have booked Renovator several times for Christmas Parties in the Gleneagle and Brehon Hotel also for Ireland Bike fest, Backstage bar and corporate gigs, the lads are a professional and excellent party band suitable for all occasions, it also helps as they are local from Tralee only 30 minutes from the venue so they are my reliable go to band for most occasions and Joe is always very professional to deal with.

The Renovators just played for my daughter's wedding in Kinsale. OMG, they were just FANTASTIC!! Such energy, such fun, such fantastic choice of songs. Brilliant voices. The dancefloor was full - how could you not dance to this amazing group!! My daughter said they were superb to work with. Everyone was ranting and raving about how brilliant they were. I would highly recommend them. Ye helped create fantastic memories. Well done lads, ye did an AMAZING job!
We had the guys play at our wedding on 3rd jan.. they were great and put us at ease right from the start.. they knew all the tricks at switching around the music to suit the guests and getting people up on the floor.. they provided 6 hours of entertainment including DJ.. our friends had the best fun and antic on the floor.. great wedding choice and so happy we went with them.
From our first email to Witness This both Lee and William were highly professional. A few texts and the booking was sorted. The Lads in the Band are fantastic playing never ending hit after hit all of which sounded superb. The dance floor was full from our First Dance until they finished up. We cannot thank them enough for making our Wedding Day afters a brilliant Night. You will not be disappointed, Just two words to finish Book Them !!
Renovator played our wedding just before Christmas and they were amazing! They kept the dancefloor full all night and everyone is still commenting on how great they were! The band is definitely one of the most memorable parts of any wedding so I could not recommend Renovator more! They were also so professional and easy to deal with.
The Soundz guys are amazing. We danced the night away to fantastic music.
No request was too much trouble, they were gentlemen to deal with in the run up to our wedding. Their ability to read the room and play accordingly was fantastic. We highly recommend these guys for any celebration. Thanks so much guys, from 2 very happy newlyweds.
We had them as our wedding band on Friday 1st November , can't recommend them highly enough!!! Had the dance floor full all night and all the guests were raving about how good they were. A massive thank you guys!!!
We booked the Lols Wedding and Corporate Band for the Midlands 103 Customer Service Awards on Monday the 14th of October 2019. The Band were fantastic and had our guests on the dance floor from the minute they started. We would like to thank Liam Claffey and all the band for their professionalism and we look forward to using the band for further events here at Midlands 103 in the future. Brian Cunningham and Albert Fitzgerald Midlands 103
My wife and I got married last October (2019), we were delighted with the service provided by the lols. The band played a good mix of songs which catered for all ages and the dance floor was full all night. Would highly recommend!
We absolutely loved having the Bentley Boys as our wedding band. They were very polite and efficient to deal with from the moment we booked them. They played a variety of songs to suit all ages and kept the dancefloor going for the night. Huge thank you guys!!
We just want to thank all of ye from the bottom of hearts for an amazing night for our wedding! Ye were even better than i remember ye were!! All my guests were so impressed with yer performance they were telling me ye were absolutely brilliant, best wedding band they had ever heard. My step son was so proud to be able to get up there and play, thank u so much, his confidence is just through the roof now! he felt like a real guitarist. Ye were worth every penny and more thank u!
We had the Boogie men at our wedding and we could not recommend them enough. They were super professional in terms of arrival times and communication.
They respected my brides wishes not to be the centre of attention and even played a few requests.
They had everyone on the dancefloor from the first dance and kept them there for the rest of the night. Great sound, great musicians, great entertainers, great night. Brilliant band.
A BRILLIANT BAND who played at our Wedding!!! Joe and the Lads kept our guests dancing for the night and the music.....o.m.g they had those TUNES right on point!!! For any couple looking to book a Wedding Band....."RENOVATOR" is the Band for you. A Massive Thanks to Joe and the Band Members for making our Wedding Night of Celebrating with our Guests one of Absolute Brilliance on the Dancefloor and a night to remember!!!! Everyone is still talking about our Wedding...."WEDDING OF THE YEAR"(So we've been told).
Huge thanks to The Conor McKeon Band for making our wedding day really special. You stole the show! So much presence and energy could be felt in the room. It was a top-class bespoke performance delivered by a band that visibly love what you do!
Great band. Brilliant service and really got the crowd going on the night. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough. If they are available you’d be mad not to book them.
Connor & the guys played at our wedding on 4th July this year & oh my god they were just phenomenal. They raised the roof & had everyone taking about them for weeks after. The dance floor was packed & we had the most magical night. Lorna is a dream to deal with too which makes the wedding planning process so much easier. We cannot recommend the Connor McKeon Band enough, true professionals & truely talented!
Renovator played at our wedding in the Oriel house hotel in Ballincollig and what can I say, they really know how to play a wedding! The dance floor was never empty, there set list suited all of our guests and everyone was talking about how amazing they were! They were unbelievable.
Music was really important to us so we took our time to pick an amazing band (it was one of the first things we did!) and it was so worth it we had a ball!! Joe was so lovely to deal with and very professional, I couldn't recommend them any more they were unreal! Thanks a million for being part of our wedding!
We had the guys for our recent wedding in Ballybeg House. In the lead up, Lorna was amazing to deal with - extremely helpful and worked with us to tailor a package that suited the music we wanted for the day. She was really responsive, always available to answer any queries we had. They asked us if we wanted any particular songs in the set but having heard them before many times, we decided to leave it to the professionals and they didn’t disappoint! Connor and the band are all extremely talented musicians and had the dance floor packed all night - neither of us have been at a wedding where this has been the case with any other band. They were also extremely nice and flexible - we truly couldn’t have asked for more from any musicians for our wedding. If I had one piece of advice is to book them early and then relax and leave them to it - they won’t let you down.
We had Rock Shandy for our wedding on the 1st June and we are so happy we went with them. The lads had the dance floor full all night and had all ages up dancing!! Will recommend Rock Shandy to everyone looking for a band, so pleasant to deal with!! Thanks a million lads, you made it a night to remember for everyone!!
Hi guys, Just want to say thank you so much for the music at our wedding! Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night! It really made the wedding! We got so many people coming up to us telling us how great ye were! Many Thanks Sinead and Michael 29th June
These lads were brilliant . They really brought something different to our big day . I couldn't recommend them enough to anyone. Even the hotel manager said they were the best wedding band he'd heard
We had Keltic Kaos for our wedding in May and they were fantastic! They are all proper musicians and great singers! The dance floor was never empty and they made sure to cater to all tastes. Would recommend them to anyone, we couldn’t have been happier, they are the best wedding band!!
Hi Conor, myself and Julian just want to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding last Saturday. From start to finish the dance floor was never empty. Everyone is raving about you guys. You guys are absolutely amazing a utter professionals and I couldn’t rate you higher. You made our wedding so special and amazing and we are so grateful xxx Anne and Julian xxx
Brilliant band thanks for making our wedding so special they kept the dance floor full all our guests were saying how good ye were we couldn’t recommend ye enough. Thanks a million guys all the best lad and again thanks guys
The Lols were fantastic. The dance floor was never empty and they gave us and our guests a night to remember. I couldn't ask for more for a wedding band. Their communication was perfect. The band played such a variety of songs which suited everyone! Thanks again
I left the choice of band up to my now hubby, being honest I was a bit nervous because he told me he booked the band from seeing their you tube promo video... So fast forward 18months we still hadn't met, seen or heard the band but my god were we blown away by the talent these guys have,
Lee is just the friendliest guy you could meet, we were at complete ease with them, the dance floor was packed all night, by far the best wedding band I've ever heard, it is now 3 days after the wedding and people are still asking about our band, I would highly highly recommend witness this, and I wish Lee and the rest of the band every success in the future.
Many thanks for sharing in our special day and for the fantastic music we couldn’t believe it at one stage we looked around & saw all our friends (some of them who never get up and dance) out on the floor having a great time.
