Wedding Band Reviews


Wedding Band Reviews – Ireland May 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:

All I can say is Wow!!
Date of Wedding: 17th May 2019

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.

Pats birthday party 🎉
Date of Wedding: Birthday party 30/3/2019

Thanks so much guys for a fab night at my party in the celbridge manor hotel celbridge on the 30th of March 19. "OH What a night" everyone's still talking about the brilliant band.
They couldn't do enough for us they let my son sing a song he wrote for me, and let my 5 year old niece and 7 year old nephew up on the stage to sing and play blow up guitars they really thought they were in the band haha nice touch guys.
We would highly recommend the band for your special occasion, they really go over and above to make it a great time to remember, "WOW" is the right name for them. Thanks again for everything 👍 🥇

Very best wishes
Pat & Michelle 😇

an awesome evening's entertainment and fun!
Date of Wedding: March 2019

A huge thank you to the Mixtape for an awesome evening's entertainment and fun! There was lots of interaction with the guests and encouraging people to get on the dancefloor.

We particularly appreciated that after the day's events running late and the venue not being ready for the band when they arrived, they still played a full set, and the DJ kept the dancefloor going well into the night. Other bands would've taken the change to duck out early with a shorter set, so we were delighted that the Mixtape kept the party going and the dancefloor was never empty!

Together with our customised first dance, It made for a very memorable evening and we'll be recommending the Mixtape to any friends getting married in the near future!

Jason really ended the night on a high
Date of Wedding: March 2019

All I can say is thank you!! Jason was amazing. He really is such a great DJ. We were dancing from start to finish. Jason really took into account our taste in music. We enjoyed every aspect of our day but Jason really ended the night on a high.
Thanks again for everything.

Amazing Night
Date of Wedding: 16 March 2019

Catherine what can I say, we had an amazing time, the band were outstanding everybody loved them. I was so glad they where available on our wedding day ❤️ can’t recommend them enough

by Michelle and Colin on The Boogie Men
Date of Wedding: 16th February 2019

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.

by Musgraves Group on The VIPs Wedding Band
Musgraves Corporate Event
Date of Wedding: 1st February 2019

Just a quick note to thank you for your support with our recent awards night.

The band went down a treat and had the dance floor full for the night!! One other thing to point out was how professional & organised they were. The team and I didn’t need to worry about set up or timings, they were ready and waiting without having to run anything by them.

Feedback on the event has been excellent and the band played a big part in the success. (I have literally just received a call from the GM in Galway to say how good the band were while typing this)

Again many thanks and please pass my gratitude on to the band.

Absolutely brilliant band
Date of Wedding: Rathsallagh House - January 2019

Absolutely brilliant band with an uncanny ability to get everyone (including the worst dancers at the party) up on the dance floor. Great group of guys who were so easy going and pleasant to work with. PS. Mr vs Mrs dance battles are a must for all future weddings! 🙂

by Gillian & Colm on Witness This
They were unbelievable
Date of Wedding: 5th January 2019

Witness this was our wedding band on the 5/1/19..... what can I say about the lads. They were unbelievable on the night. Soo many people came to me on the night and the day after saying how great the lads were. They had the floor full all night. I would recommend these lads to anyone, they played a bit of everything so they appeal to all age groups. So if you are thinking of booking Witness this id say just do it, you won’t regret it.

by Amanda & Adrian on The Stars Wedding Band
Date of Wedding: 31st December 2018

We had the the stars as our wedding band on New Year’s Eve, As my husband says they were unbelievable, i cant thank them enough for doing such an amazing job, they were a pleasure to deal with. They had the dance floor filled the whole night and all of our guests were singing their praises. And a huge thanks to Chris who had the tunes pumping for the disco!! I loved it!! 😁😁 all in all a great band and I would highly recommend them to anyone.Thanks again guys! Amanda and Adrian x

by Norah & Hughie on The Boogie Men

would definitely recommend The Mixtape
Date of Wedding: Lusty Beg - November 2018

A massive thank you to The Mixtape for the brilliant music at our Wedding!! The Mixtape are a fantastic band and everyone really enjoyed the music from start to end! The Mixtape were brilliant at getting people onto the dance floor and had the dance floor filled all night long! The DJ that followed the band also kept the great music going into the early hours! We would definitely recommend The Mixtape as your no.1 wedding band choice!

by Rebecca & Karl on Perfect Day Wedding Band
Huge thanks
Date of Wedding: 24 November 2018

Hi Catherine (and band!)

Quick note to say huge thank you for making our wedding day so amazing. All the guests were raving about you, the dance floor was always packed and I really appreciated the fuss you made of Harry playing the drums - he loved it.

If we can provide a testimonial/recommendation somewhere just let me know -

Thanks again
Rebecca and Karl

by Reidin & Benn on The Mixtape
Date of Wedding: Langtons - November 2018

Wow-can I just say that The Mixtape were incredible! We were really impressed with them at their showcase, but the way they perform at your wedding is just another level of excellence! The dancefloor was never empty, all our guests raved about the band-several asking for the name of the band to recommend to friends and work colleagues. Easily one of my favourite parts of the whole wedding day was at the end of the band’s set, they had all our guests form a big ring around my husband and myself and sing to us. We both got so emotional seeing all our loved ones there and enjoying themselves so much. I honestly can’t thank The Mixtape enough-you were a huge part of what made our big day the best of our lives!

by Leona & Joe on Perfect Day Wedding Band
You set Boyne Hill House on fire
Date of Wedding: 10 November 2018

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,

Leona & Joe

a full on party
Date of Wedding: Carton House, November 2018

I cannot recommend these lads enough!! The Mixtape played at our wedding in Carton House on 9th November 2018 and it was the best decision I made. I contacted Naoise back in Feb and asked if they could play our first dance song but put their own spin on it and did they deliver!! The lads turned our wedding into a full on party- the dance floor was full from the first song and they were so interactive with our guests. There was a bride vs groom challenge, a dance off, a conga chain of 80+ guests which travelled throughout the old rooms of Carton House collecting more guests and the set list was such a deadly mix. Friends and family are still raving about them 2 weeks later! Food and music are the two most important elements of your wedding (after your vows of course) so you may stop looking- you have found your wedding band! I had never seen the Mixtape perform before booking them, I went purely on their reviews which are incredible, and deservedly so. I’ll have to plan to renew our vows so I can book ye again!!

highly recommend
Date of Wedding: Clonabreany House, October 2018

We hired the mixtape to do a band & DJ set at our wedding in Clonabreany House. They were absolutely excellent at getting the crowd up & dancing and the setlist was perfectly tailored to cater for the differing age groups at the wedding. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band for a wedding.

by Niamh & Shane on Witness This
You'll enjoy your wedding so much with this band
Date of Wedding: 27th October 2018

What can i say about this band only that they made our wedding day. They had everyone up danceing all night with out having to give any encouragement to get people up which i have seen at weddings before. They know the right music to play and are very good at what they do. Thank guys for making our wedding day.

they got everyone going
Date of Wedding: Lough Crew Estate, October 2018

These guys were excellent. The crowd interaction was really great and got everyone going. The mix of songs they played was superb and had something for everyone while keeping feet on the dance floor at all times. We have had loads of great feedback about them from our guests since. They are great in the run up to the wedding too, kept us in the loop and made us comfortable all was in order. Would highly recommend them as they were the perfect addition to our wedding evening.

by Sarah & Michael on The Mixtape
insanely talented, fantastic fun!
Date of Wedding: Bellingham Castle, October 2018

Michael and I had the absolute pleasure of having The Mixtape as our wedding band in Bellingham Castle on 26/10/18! You guys are insanely talented, fantastic fun and absolutely ensured our wedding was the party we wanted it to be. I can not recommend this band enough for all couples on their big day. Our dance floor was genuinely jammed until the final moments!! We also booked the dj and everyone commented on how outstanding he was too! The band also ensured our first dance was lively and fun - exactly what we wanted when we chose our song! If I was to do it all again I would book you guys every single time!!! Xx thank you so much
Sarah and Michael xx

absolutely fantastic!
Date of Wedding: Tinakilly House, October 2018

From Lana and Albert, 12th Oct 2018, Tinakilly. The band were absolutely fantastic! Not only did they sing our first dance song perfectly, they kept the place buzzing throughout the whole night. The playlist was brilliant and everyone was up and dancing. We couldn’t have been happier that we had The Mixtape play at our wedding! Looking forward to seeing these guys in action again!

the floor was hopping all night
Date of Wedding: Hotel Dunloe, September 2018

A huge thank you to The Mixtape for their awesome set at our recent wedding in Hotel Dunloe in Kerry. Keeping the dance floor full and fun is always a big worry ahead of your wedding day but from the very first dance to the end of the night there was no fear of that - the floor was hopping all night thanks to these guys. Their interaction with the crowd was superb. The DJ set was also great and definitely the way to go so there is no interruption in change of band to an alternative DJ. Our guests raved about our band and The Mixtape couldn’t have been more pleasant to deal with. Would have no hesitation in recommending these guys 🙂 thanks!!

by Meav & Duncan, on The Mixtape
an amazing band
Date of Wedding: Renvyle House, September 2018

The Mixtape are an amazing band and so easy to work with. The set list that the band played was perfect and the DJ after was great and played all requests made! We have had so many comments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the music. We highly recommend The Mixtape!

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.
