Wedding Band Reviews


Wedding Band Reviews – Ireland January 2023

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:

Absolute must have wedding band!!
Date of Wedding: 23rd July 2022

Dave and I had Yann and the Playlist band play at our wedding in July earlier this year and wanted to say a massive thank you for an absolutely incredible performance all night! Yann's guitar performance at the outdoor drinks reception was also perfect. All the song choices were perfect, you had everyone of all ages up and enjoying themselves which made it all the more special for us. I am not kidding when I tell you every single person I met that night, the next morning, at the day 2 commented that ye were the best band and kept everyone up dancing even in the warmest of rooms. I can't thank you enough, even in the lead up with all my questions and making sure our first dance song was perfect, not to mention getting that very special dance with my dad. You guys are what every wedding needs, thank you again!

Simply Incredible
Date of Wedding: 23rd July 2022

What can I say? Everyone is talking about the reception music and how fantastic it was! The atmosphere these guys created was unbelievable! They clearly have a true passion for traditional music and it shone brightly! We cannot thank The High Reel enough! Everyone old and young were raving about them! Would highly recommend!

by Paul & Roisin on The High Reel
Date of Wedding: 23rd April 2022

We would highly recommend the High Reel band, a very talented group! They are passionate about trad music and bring so much energy, fun and deliver an incredible performance. They performed at a bbq for day 2 of our wedding. The guests really enjoyed their performance. I would highly rate them and will certainly book them again for any occasion. They were also such a pleasure to deal with !

The highlight of the night
Date of Wedding: 30th April 2022

Anthony and the lads were incredible. They went above and beyond to help us in executing a surprise performance for the bride and groom, but their own performance was truly the highlight of the night. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Unforgettable Night!
Date of Wedding: 23rd April 2022

Absolutely brilliant wedding band. Our floor was hopping all night. Played a bit of everything. All our guests raving about what a great band we had. We would 100% recommend witness this for a wedding.
Thanks again guys!

by Áine Reddan on Theresa Larkin Music
Would highly recommend!
Date of Wedding: 19th February 2022

Theresa was so helpful when it came to planning the church music for our wedding. She made sure to meet early so I could have it organised and put it to the back of my mind. She also gave me guidance with the readings and it was all very appreciated because we didn’t know where to start. Now for the music, it was so beautiful. She made some new additions to her repertoire to accommodate some songs I had to have. She added a new level of emotion to an emotional and loving day. Would highly recommend!

What a Band!
Date of Wedding: 18th December 2021

What a band this is, had to change dates due to Covid and there was never a problem. So easy to deal with and so professional. what a fantastic job they done on our first dance, was absolutely delighted with the way they sang it. Totally at one with the crowd and played songs even for the kids. they were just awesome. I know a guest tried to book ye for their wedding on the night and I have had two other guests ask for your details. I can only say i wish ye all the best in the future, thank you so much lads ye are fantastic.

A pleasure to work with
Date of Wedding: 7th January 2022

Theresa was a pleasure to work with. She was very accommodating and was only a phone call away at any stage for a query or question. Theresa’s music at our wedding ceremony just added that extra special layer to our ceremony. I would highly recommend Theresa and her musicians/singers for a wedding ceremony. Talented musicians with beautiful vocals.

by Amanda and Will on Witness This
Absolutely Amazing
Date of Wedding: 15th October 2021

We can't recommend Witness This enough,they were fantastic. Every single person at our wedding was up dancing. We are still getting comments from guests about how amazing they were. They are also such lovely people to deal with. Always prompt in getting back to us and no such thing as a silly question. Such a great range of music as well. We both want to thank you for making our day even more amazing.

by Laura & Martin on Theresa Larkin Music
Beautiful from start to finish
Date of Wedding: 22nd October 2021

The fabulous church music we had at our wedding last week was amazing. All our guest have been talking about it since. This group of musicians were amazing to work with and notting was to much for them, while choosing the songs and the little details on the day. They was very accommodating with the change in dates due to Covid and all that goes with a Covid Wedding. The music was beautiful from start to finish. Thanks to you again.

by Maria & Stephen on Theresa Larkin Music
Definitely recommend!
Date of Wedding: August 2021

Theresa is a fantastic musician who I would definitely recommend to any couple looking for music for their wedding. Theresa helped my sister and her fiancé pick out a beautiful arrangement of music for the wedding and also organised musicians to accompany her such as the harpist.
I opted to sing for my sisters wedding and Theresa helped me in every way she could to ensure that I was confident and happy to sing the chosen songs in a way that suited both of us! She brings a wonderful calm presence to the day and is fantastic to work alongside!
Thank you so much Theresa for making Maria and Stephens wedding day so special and for the beautiful music !

by Chris Ferncombe on Theresa Larkin Music
Absolutely brilliant
Date of Wedding: 31st July 2021

From the very first phone call to the Wedding day, Theresa was very helpful and professional. Music on the day was absolutely brilliant and really made the ceremony. I can’t recommend Theresa highly enough as she would be perfect for any couple planning their special day.

by Niamh and David on Blacktye Wedding Band
Fantastic band, you need these guys at your wedding!
Date of Wedding: 12th September 2020

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 🙂

professional and excellent party band
Date of Wedding: 01/08/2020

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.

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 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.

It was an honour to have Theresa Larkin play at our daughter Ashleigh Fogarty and Michael Ryan’s wedding recently.From beginning to end it was so touching and moving. Everyone commented on the music in the church. We would highly recommend Theresa. Theresa worked with Ashleigh and Michael to choose the right kind of music in the lead up to such a special occasion. Absolutely beautiful person to work with. Thank you Theresa for such beautiful music. Continued success to you!

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

by Eamon & Giselle on The Boogie Men
Just great
Date of Wedding: 6-Sept-2019

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.
