Both the Band and the DJ arrive at 8:30PM and are ready to get setup. Sometimes the rooms requires a little preparation and Bob the DJ can be ready to play some music for guests in no time at all.

How long does a band play at a wedding?

Usually no less than 2 hours. Any Irish wedding band would normally play from your best wedding first dance song all the way up to around Midnight with our Wedding DJ continuing on until 2.00am or Hotel Curfew. We are always very flexible and can work within each couple’s pre arranged time schedule. Bob, our DJ arrives at the same time so he can warm up the room with some music while the tables are being moved, or in preparation of the first dance.

Will it be very loud?

As a professional sound engineer I understand the importance of a suitable volume for the size of room and stage of the evening i.e. we don’t deafen you and ensure a quality show from start to finish.

Should we choose a wedding music playlist?

We always welcome any suggestions towards the playlist for the night. Especially when there are “Must Have” tunes that need to be heard on the night then we are happy to make it them a priority. You are not required to select songs for the evening and usually the best plan is to leave it the overall show to us. We read the crowd on as we go and see what they like and prefer.

How long should a DJ play at a wedding?

Bob is a working professional DJ and arrives at the same time as the band. He brings his own sound system and starts almost straight away warming up the room with some easy listening. During the break, he will take over again and keep the atmosphere going whilst letting the food or refreshments happen. Once the band has finished, Bob takes the party to a whole new level with up to the minute chart hits, club anthems, nostalgic classics and a whole heap of requests. How he fits it all in sometimes, makes me wonder. He can play all the way up until 2.30am or Hotel Curfew (Whichever comes first)

What the most popular first dance song?

Some of our previous first dances are listed on our playlist page. In case you need inspiration! We absolutely love playing the first dance. We have been asked for some amazing and quirky songs in our time. Its always a very special moment and we are honoured to be a part of it. We also don’t mind if you prefer the original version from CD. The only requirement for a first song is advance notice! We have played a lot of the popular songs before but if your first dance really is a bit different, we would need a few weeks notice to prepare.

Can we come and see you first?

It’s safe to say that if you like our videos and playlist then you can rest assured, we will impress you and your guests on the night. We also play Showcase gigs and Pub gigs for the purpose of giving people a feel for what the band can deliver. Our show is very energetic and we are proud of what we do. So, it’s not a requirement but it is a lot of fun to come and see us, get excited, have a great evening, tell your friends.

How far in advance should you book a wedding band?

How much are wedding bands in Ireland?

Not all Wedding Bands are created equal! In fairness to this question, there are a lot of factors to take into account. The main variables would usually be: How many members are in the band The date (Peak Times or Off Peak Times) The location to your Venue (distance that they will travel) How long they will play for Will they include a DJ in the price The quality of band There was a very intensive survey done by a website called OneFabDay which laid out a lot of the information really well.
