Wedding Band Reviews


Wedding Band Reviews – Ireland March 2019

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.

Wedding Band Reviews - Ireland

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:

The Boogie Men played at our wedding and were absolutely fantastic. They were full of energy, kept the dancefloor full and played songs to suit all tastes. We have lost count of how many people have commented on how good they were. Really could not be happier with our decision to book them.

Thank you to all the members of the band for the music throughout the day. The ceremony music was amazing and really special. We hardly left the floor all night. Our guests all wanted to know your bands name. And the rave at 2am was unexpected but fantastic. Smiles and laughing all round!

Thanks again,

Pure Joy!
Date of Wedding: Sept 2018

We booked Ukebox as a surprise for our guests, and what a surprise they were!!
They added so much joy and fun to our day and were an absolute wedding highlight. We couldn't have hoped for more.
The kindest bunch of lads, one of the best decisions we made and would book them again in a heartbeat.
Don't wait, book them, you won't regret it.

by Gemma & Joe on Bentley Boys
I would recommend them to everyone!
Date of Wedding: September 2018

The Bentley Boys were amazing! From start to finish the dance floor was full! Nothing was to much hassle and they played any request. Great variety of music. The DJ was excellent too. So friendly and approachable. All the guests commented on how good they were and how sore their feet were the next day from all the dancing. Overall I would recommend them to everyone! Thanks again for a brilliant day!

by Danielle & JP on Bentley Boys
Date of Wedding: September 2018 - Belleek Castle

The Bentley Boys were awesome! Kept the dance floor full all night for a mixed crowd of Americans and Irish. Incredible communications (even when planning from far away San Francisco).
Thank you!

by Rosin & Mark on Perfect Day Wedding Band
Date of Wedding: 10 Sep 2018

It has taken a while for us to settle back into life here in Sydney and get around to this but we just wanted to thank you once again for the joy and entertainment you brought to our wedding day. The dancefloor was full from the first to the last song. The mix and standard of music and singing was outstanding. I think that for Mumford and Sons, Little Lion Man the whole building was shaking! I know that I went through three shirts on the night from pure revelling in the music. All through the planning process you were an absolute joy to deal with and we were both thrilled with our choice of Perfect Day. I would recommend you for any event without hesititation. Thank you for being part of our day and we wish you a tremendous Christmas.

They absolutely rocked the place
Date of Wedding: 7th September 2018

Witness This were amazing!. Let me tell you why.The communication with Lee beforehand was excellent. He constantly reassured me that everything would be great, and he wasn't wrong. They absolutely rocked the place. They had the dancefloor full all night. I constantly through-out the evening was asked where I found such a fabulous band. 88 guests at my wedding told me how great they were. I love their choice of songs, I loved the way they preformed, I loved how they just knew how to get people dancing.I have been told multiple times since that it was "the best wedding ever!!" by guests of all ages and I put it all down to the amazing performance of Lee and the guys from Witness This. I cannot recommend you lads enough. Thank you so much.

We couldn’t have asked for more
Date of Wedding: 1st September 2018

Witness This played at our wedding on September 1st. They are an amazing band and a pleasure to deal with. We were dancing from start to finish. Excellent playlist and suited our crowd. Lively and energetic. Just an amazing wedding band. We couldn’t have asked for more. Bonus is dealing with Lee. Such a nice guy and so easy to deal with.
We would highly recommend to anyone to book this band for their wedding.

couldn't recommend them highly enough
Date of Wedding: 31st August 2018

We would like to thank Southbound for playing at our wedding on the 31st of August 2018 in the Park Hotel Dungarvan. Everyone says get a good band and venue and everything else will fall into place, from the first time we saw Southbound and met the lads we were sold, we had no reservations or worries about them. They proved this and more at our wedding, the dance floor never dropped in numbers all night, they kept the people dancing and involved and still managed to cater to all age groups attending, no mean feat. They are an excellent bunch of lads who give 110% when performing and we could not recommend them highly enough to any couple getting married. The people were raving all weekend about the great lively wedding we had and this was due to Southbound, and the all the girls especially Lorraine were complaining the next day about their sore and swollen feet a great sign of a good night!!
Thanks to Pat, John, TJ and the lads for making our wedding night one to remember.

An amazing band!

An amazing band! Will have all your guests on the dance floor. So happy we got them. Easily contacted and quick responses from them also.

Bentley Boys truly made our day
Date of Wedding: August 2018 - Wicklow

The Bentley Boys truly made our day. The dance floor was full all night while during the day the music was a wonderful accompaniment and not something we were trying to talk over. They tried their best to meet our every request and most of the compliments we received from our guests were surrounding the music and the band. We are so pleased we invested in the Bentley Boys as there was no need for any other gimmicks- these guys are all the entertainment you need!

by Phil & Rhea on The Stars Wedding Band
By God they delivered!
Date of Wedding: August 2018 - Dromoland

We booked the Stars after a recommendation of friends who got married 8 years a ago - we were told the band were what everyone still talks about to this day so they had a lot to live up to. By God they delivered! The dance floor was full all night playing some absolute belters, including some we requested.Book these guys- they are fantastic and helped make our day at Dromoland perfect. My only regret is that I didn't get a chance to talk to them and say thanks, but I was too busy dancing (Thanks lads). Also thanks to Chris for the DJ set after - also cracking!

I haven't danced so much in ages
Date of Wedding: 18th August 2018

The Nighthawks played at our wedding party on Saturday 18th August at Glasson Country house Hotel. We could not recommend Joe and the lads highly enough.

It was a pleasure speaking to Joe in the run up to the big day. The band very kindly learnt off our 1st dance and a couple of other special requests that we had for the night.
Our wedding guests had come from near and far - mainly a Turkish and Irish fusion and they all had a great time on the dance floor. I haven't danced so much in ages myself!
The ceilí set was a definite highlight really everyone was happy with the music mix on the night.
DJ supplied was also very accommodating.
Many thanks to all of you 🙂
Best Wishes,
Sarah & Ahmet Arslan

Couldn't recommend the lads highly enough
Date of Wedding: August 2018

What can I say... Rock Shandy were our wedding band and I can't describe the amazing vibe the lads had. Everyone that attended our wedding had sore feet from dancing, raved about the music, we have sore throats from singing along and to top it off they learned our first dance song but myself and my bride both agreed they nailed it and made our special day an amazing experience. I wouldn't be a huge dance floor fan but ended up on it more than the bride. Couldn't recommend the lads highly enough.

We were overawed and overwhelmed
Date of Wedding: 2013 - Castle Durrow

We were overawed and overwhelmed (as were our guests) at the entertainment you provided throughout our very special day. The music during the service was super and the jazz trio set the perfect tone. The party band were amazing, the floor was packed all night. What can we say, we are so thankful to you for making our day. We put an extraordinary amount of time into creating an memorably wedding experience for our guests and we could not have realised these dreams without your help.

I can’t recommend them highly enough
Date of Wedding: July 2018

We booked The Great Escape for our wedding and they were fantastic. We are based in England but they were easy to communicate with via email and quick to reply to any queries. They actually learned our first dance song and were really great at getting everyone partying. They went from one song into another so people actually just remained on the dance floor enjoying themselves. At the end of their set they gathered everyone on the dance floor and say some great things about us and have us all doing a final dance together. Then their DJ came on afterwards who was brilliant and they produced a great party atmosphere. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Thanks for everything.
