Susan & Johnny Sat 21st May 2022 -The Millhouse

Just a quick note to say thanks to the Kooky Ukes & Best Men for Saturday - we had an absolute blast and they were so so good. I’ve had so many people ask me for their contact info which is a great sign! They really made the ceremony (‘ thanks for adding a song we’d requested) and the dance floor then hopped all night. Cheers & thanks again, they were a dream!

Stephen & Niamh, Sunday 15th May 2022 in Tinakilly Country House.

"We just wanted to pass on our gratitude to The Best Men, they were absolutely amazing and set such an amazing atmosphere for our wedding. We had everyone up dancing from all different generations and we have some great videos of it all. We couldn't have asked for more and we have had everyone comment to us about how amazing the band was. The DJ set was absolutely fantastic as well and I loved how coordinated they were not replaying the songs that the band has already played. Overall we couldn't have been happier with choosing The Best Men for our wedding!"

Sarah-Jane & Declan, 28th August 2020, Tulfarris Hotel, Co. Wicklow

The Best Men are the Best Wedding Band ever!! We were lucky enough to have them playing at our wedding in August. They are incredibly talented musicians and really entertained the 50 people that were allowed to be in the room. They had us all up dancing and we loved every minute of their set. Planning and rearranging plans during the Covid restrictions was tricky but the band were amazing to deal with. We cannot recommend The Best Men highly enough! THANK YOU! Sarah-Jane & Declan 28.08.20

Shirley & Lockey, 7th February 2020, Riverside Park Hotel, Co. Wexford

What can I SAY only a massive Thank you for an amazing night. You were even better than I taught. When booking the lads myself and my now husband watched promo after promo and we just kept coming back to the lads. There videos are so upbeat and different. So we booked. Then we went to a showcase and we were only delighted we went with our gut. We had an absolute ball of a time and everyone is still talking about ye. Never a dull moment. I can’t wait to hear you again some time. Couldn’t recommend a better wedding band. Shirley and Lockey

Emer & Ciaran, 29th December 2019, Mount Wolseley Hotel, Co. Carlow

We just wanted to say thanks to the band for performing at our wedding.

 

We booked the guys immediately after viewing at a showcase and it was definitely one of the easier decisions in the wedding planning  process!

 

 

We got loads of comments about how great the band was and we would highly recommend!

 

Best regards

 

Emer & Ciarán

 

 

Grace & Pete, 1st December 2019, Darver Castle, Co. Louth

The best men played at our wedding last month and we just wanted to say how impressed we were. They kept the dance floor full all night and the transition to DJ was seamless. Thank you for making our day so special, and for being so professional throughout.

Eimear & Declan, 15th November 2019, Ferrycarrig Hotel, Co. Wexford

We just wanted to send a quick e mail to thank you for the fantastic service and music you provided for our wedding on the 15th November.

Niamh, through all of the e mails and all of our queries, you showed great patience and professionalism and we really appreciate your guidance and kindness.

Jonathan and band members, you were just fantastic on the night of our wedding. The dance floor was never empty, even during the afters food, which we really appreciate you playing through! So many of our guests commented on what a fantastic band you are and how well you read the crowd on the night. Serious shapes were thrown by even the most reluctant dancers, always a good sign!

Niamh, could you also pass our appreciation on to our DJ please! He played all of the songs we looked for and contributed to an absolute sweat fest! We wanted a real party for our wedding and he did not disappoint in helping us to achieve that!! The fact that friends of ours sought to book him on the night for their own wedding speaks for itself!

Thank you once again to all of you for a wonderful experience. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Best Men to all of our friends.

Kind regards,
Eimear and Declan

Aisling & Kevin, 4th October 2019, Clonabreany House, Co. Meath

I just wanted to send you an email to pass our thanks on to The Best Men band who played at our wedding in Clonabreany House on October 4th.

The guys were absolutely fantastic from start to finish. They were set up and ready to go as soon as we were finished the speeches and kept the dance floor full all night. So many of our guest commented on how great they were. They really made the night and I can’t thank them enough!

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending The Best Men to any couples!

Take Care,
Aisling

Siobhan & David, 7th September 2019, Balyna House, Co. Kildare

Could you pass on our deepest thanks to the band? They played a blinder at our wedding in Moyvalley on Saturday 7th September. They were in the door and set up before anyone had even realised they’d arrived. We were running a bit behind but the lads were very patient and they were ready to go the moment we needed them. They played fantastically and so many of our guests remarked about how wonderful they sounded.
Cannot thank you all enough for a flawless performance!

Best wishes for the Best Men ,

Siobhán and David

Joanna & Keith, 2nd August 2019, County Arms Hotel, Co. Offaly

Katie & Cathal, 26th July 2019, Boyne Hill House, Co. Meath

We just wanted to send an email and let you and the band know how happy we are after our wedding on Friday. From the moment we saw the lads at a showcase we both knew they would be brilliant for our wedding, but they were beyond! The dancefloor was never empty and the amount of guests that came to me and said how incredible the band were was crazy! Our first dance song was perfect, we were just blown away by their talent! And the song I had chosen for the father daughter dance was special as my Dads a huge Bowie fan, he was delighted!! They really made our special day even better by creating an amazing atmosphere, and when they finished the DJ took over and we danced and danced! Thank you all so much xx

From Katie & Cathal xx

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing performance you put on at our wedding on the 1st of July at Ballymagarvey. We loved the range of music you played, which was evident in the amount of people on the dance floor all night. All our guests raved about how wonderful you were!

Darren & Laura

Rhiannon & Dave, 29th June 2019, Castleknock Hotel, Dublin

As you know the BEST MEN played at our wedding in Castleknock Hotel on the 29th of June and I just wanted to email you to tell you how brilliant they were! I am so delighted that we booked them as they were just phenomenal. Not only did they have all the guests up and dancing but everyone was raving about them after. The music is such an important part of the wedding party and they just made our day including the DJ after who was just as excellent. Most importantly myself and my husband had the best time dancing the night away! I can’t thank the boys enough for putting on such an excellent show and really making my wedding one to remember!
Please send my regards to the band!

Many Thanks
Rhiannon and Dave

Niamh & Jack, 15th June 2019, Tulfarris Hotel, Co.Wicklow 

Hi Joanna,

 

I wanted to email and hope you can pass on a message to the band and DJ for me. 

 

They were both AMAZING!!! Like I cannot put into words how fab we thought they were. We have had so many people say to us they have never seen a dance floor so packed at a wedding at all times. Jack and I were barely off the dance floor because it was just so good!! I truly am lost for words to describe how good ourselves and our guests thought they were. 

 

The only downside was we didn’t get much of a chance to talk to them and thank them personally on the night!As we are the first of all our friends to get married we will certainly be pushing our friends when the time comes to have them!! 

 

Much love,

 

Niamh & Jack xxx

Elaine & Herby, 8th June 2019 – Radisson Blu St. Helen’s Hotel, Co. Dublin

Dear Joanna,

 

I just want to thank The Best Men/Kooky Yukes for bringing their A game to our wedding. I actually booked the wedding date around the group’s availability & I am so delighted that I did. 

 

We didn’t spend anything extra on gimmicks as the onus for the day was to have really great, high octane, fun music. And that’s exactly what we got. Thanks to the guys for making it the best day of our lives. If we could do it all again we wouldn’t change a thing. 

 

Thanks so much for everything. 

 

Cheers, 

 

Elaine & Herby

We had a great time dancing all night! 

 

I will definitely be recommending them to friends. 

 

Thanks again for all your help, you’ve been a pleasure to deal with.

Rory & Amanda

Liz & Johnny, 22nd Feb 2019, Summerhill House Hotel

Hi Joanne, 

 

I just wanted to email you and the guys to thank you so much for all your help over the past year. You were a pleasure to work with and made the whole booking process so simple. 

 

The band on the night arrived on time and absolutely smashed it. We are getting a lot of great feedback from our guests who loved them, some saying that they are the best band they have ever heard, so hopefully you’ll get a few more weddings out of it. The DJ was also fantastic. A seamless transition from the band to DJ really kept the dance floor going.  I really hope to cross paths with the band again.

 

Thank you again for all your help over the past year and for making our wedding day feel special. 

 

All the best in the future,

 

Johnny and Liz.

The Best Men played our wedding last Friday & i just wanted to email you to say thanks so much! You have no idea how well they went down!!

Myself and Andrew just wanted to send a short note to thank The Best Men for their fantastic performance last Friday at our wedding. Our first dance was The One by Kodaline and it was amazing. We apologise as we didn’t get to thank them in person on the night – it was so hectic!

They were absolutely fantastic and our guests really enjoyed the music! We got a lot of compliments on the band choice and the dance floor was full all night. The DJ was also excellent and a very nice man.

Please let them know that we had a great evening and we really appreciate their great work! If they would like us to post a review somewhere we would be more than happy to do so.

“Just want to say a massive Thank you to the Best Men Band . They played at our wedding on 28th July and the floor was not empty from start to finish they were AMAZING. Unbeknown to me and my husband, my sisters in law decided to write a song for us. They were in contact with the band and the guys were kind enough to learn the lyrics and surprise us on the night of our wedding. It was brilliant and something me, my husband and all our friends and family will never forget . It truly was one of the best nights and all thanks to you guys. Also have to mention the girls in the office, such a pleasure to deal with from the start and nothing was ever a hassle. Thank you so much again for everything, I cannot highly recommend them enough.

Had everyone up dancing for the whole night, and my own personal highlight was them playing Maniac 2000 at he end of the night – had everyone on the floor. Still getting complements weeks after the wedding, from everyone who enjoyed it”

WELL WORTH IT!!! These guys are great. were very quick to set up and the dancefloor was packed from start to finish!! they played what we wanted and more and are very professional. I would recommend this band to anyone who was unsure of who to get. Great night!!

David Greene, 31st July 2015

We just want to thank the band for an absolutely fantastic night last Saturday. From the moment the band started to when the dj finished the dance floor was packed!!! I thought all of our mum and dads friends would be gone to bed at 12 o clock but they were still dancing at 2.30!!!

The speeches and entertainment went on longer than we expected and the band were so accommodating and even played on longer than they were meant to, we really really appreciate this and it meant so much to us as everyone was enjoying themselves so much.

We will definitely be recommending you all to all our friends

Thanks again.

Alastair and Ciara, Castle Leslie, Co.Monaghan, 23rd May 2015

Well, if we could give more than 5 stars we would! Having the best men at our wedding really just made it perfect. Everyone raved about the music for the whole night. They had the dancefloor packed at all times. They were also very good at reading the crowd, there wasn’t one song that didn’t have everyone running to the floor! Adding the brass section really made them that little bit extra special. Also the DJ supplied was excellent and made the transition from band to DJ seamless. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Worth every penny!

Amy & Gerard, 11th April 2015

Myself and Ronan want to say a big thank you to the guys for Friday. Everything from the church to the DJ it was all fantastic. The guys were excellent, everyone is saying how good the band were and we are delighted. Please pass this onto them as we would like to say a big thank you to them.

Just wanted to thank the band and DJ for playing at our wedding on 14/03/15, just trying to get back into the swing of things now…honeymoon is well and truly over unfortunately. We had an amazing day and the music was the icing on the cake…everyone commented on how good the band was and how the band ‘fitted’ into all the genres of music played. Would also like to make a special mention to the DJ who was very accommodating with requests, karaoke and dance-offs…it was a fine finish to the evening…please pass on our comments and good wishes. Thanks again for everything…and will pass your name around when we can!!

Firstly I just want to say a special thanks to you for making life so simple and been so professional in every dealing I had with you by phone or e-mail.

We would like you to pass on our sincere thanks to the band who were brilliant and we were really happy with them and people had only great things to say about them after the wedding. Also the DJ was top notch as well and the transition between the 2 was seemless.

Thanks again and the very best in the future to you & the guys.

Regards

Ronan & Claire Ann, Brehon Hotel, Killarney, 27th December 2014

The Best Men band were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. So professional & on our big day had the dance floor full from the beginning. 100% recommend. Our friends also booked them after hearing them at our wedding.

Hi Niamh,

What a weekend we have had! Just a very quick note to say a huge thank you to the band and dj. Everyone is still talking about how good they were, don’t think we left the dance floor all night. We are dashing off on honeymoon now but just wanted to make contact before we go.

I can’t believe I’m only just getting on to say thank you now!! But a HUGE massive thank you to The Best Men for the amazing night at our wedding on the 7th June! You guys were incredible from start to finish (especially grateful for the Mama Do The Hump mash-up in our first dance!  I couldn’t believe the dance floor was full literally all night, you guys knew exactly what our guests wanted, everyone was raving about our band choice the next day! And also a massive thanks to your lovely co-ordinator Niamh, her help throughout the booking was incredible and especially with my minor melt-down the day before (Niamh will know what I’m talking about!). I’d highly recommend you guys to anyone, no wonder you’s have won Wedding Band of the Year so many times! Thanks again, Mr & Mrs O’Flanagan  xx

Hi Niamh,
We just wanted to drop you and the band a quick note to say thanks very much for performing at our wedding. They were absolutely first class. I think a practically full dance floor told its own story. And also thanks to the DJ for putting up with our bizarre(PJ and Duncan) requests!!
A couple of our friends have already asked for your contact details which have passed on.

Many thanks,
Philip & Ciara, Glenview Hotel, 31st May 2014

Hi Niamh, I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to The Best Men and the DJ for playing at our wedding on the 12th April in The Millhouse. The band were incredible, we had so much fun dancing and our guests are still talking about how brilliant they were! We’ve had lots of people say that they kept forgetting that there was a live band playing because the music was so amazing that it sounded like it was recorded in a studio. Everything they played was perfect and really fitted the crowd at the wedding. Also, the dj set was perfect and we honestly couldn’t have asked for better|! Thank you all so much for everything. I would highly recommended the band and dj to absolutely anyone, they were perfect!

Thanks again
Sinead and John, The Millhouse, 12th April 2014

Hey, Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all the music at our wedding on the 10th April in the Glenview. Everyone was RAVING about the music and really enjoyed it. To The Kooky Ukes, everyone thought you were such an unusually fantastic addition to a wedding and thought it was such a great idea to have pre-dinner music to get everyone in the mood. You really got the kids boogying too! To The Best Men, you really knew the audience and when to change tactics and the dancefloor stayed full for the whole night. To the DJ, you played all our requested songs and had everyone flying til the end of the night. Everyone just wanted to stay partying all night (and did, in the residents bar;)). You all were truly fantastic and I couldn’t have been prouder to have you all play on our big day. You really made it for us. Thank you! Kind regards,

Maria & Tony, Glenview Hotel, 10th April 2014

 

The Best Men Wedding Band Review

Karen & Anthony’s Wedding

Hi Niamh,
Anthony and Karen here we just want to say a huge thanks to you for all your help over the last few weeks.
As for the band they were just amazing from the minute they started to the finish. Jonathan is an amazing vocalist. The dance floor was never empty. The biggest compliment we can give them is that numerous people said to us that they didn’t even know the DJ had started. I am a hundred per cent sure ye will have numerous enquiries from people in west cork with regards the best men. Everyone was blown away. Also thanks for playing on so long I know ye didn’t need to. Also the dj brought the house down. So in all we can’t say enough good about the whole experience.
Just amazing. I hope they enjoyed the Rosscarbery clientel.

Darragh & Anne Marie’s Wedding

Just dropping you a quick note to say thanks, to you for being such a pleasure to deal with and for the guys for putting in a great performance on the night! They had everyone out and the dance floor was filled for the night, which is all we could ask for. They were asked for a few cards on the night too so hope it leads to a few more gigs for them!
Hope you had a good New Years and thanks again!

We are just back from honeymoon and wanted to send a huge thank you to Jonathan and The Best Men Wedding Band for the amazing job they did.Everyone has been raving about The Kooky Ukes, so many people have been asking about them and commenting on the atmosphere they provided and the fun music. One of the managers in the hotel was even asking about them and said they were the best reception music he had ever seen there.</p> <p>The Best Men Wedding Band did such an amazing job and we are hearing such great feedback from all our guests. They had everyone up dancing all night long. Thanks for all your emails over the past few months and for being so easy to deal with.

The guys were amazing on the day. Everyone came up to us to tell us how good they were. I have to say a special thanks to them for learning the ” Rocky Road to Poland” the boys loved it. They played for all the folks and the dance floor was never empty you could hardly move and it’s a MASSIVE dance floor. Thanks also to Pro DJs. He played everything I asked and more the dance floor was a sweaty mess but in a good way! We have passed your name on to a few people since I couldn’t recommend you highly enough. You managed to have everybody, young and old up dancing for the entire night. I could not speak more highly of you and you really helped make it a sensational night. Everyone thought you rocked. Keep up the great work. Thanks again

Hello Niamh, We are just back this week after a lovely honeymoon, and I just wanted to thank you and the Best Men Wedding Band for the wonderful job you did for us. The dancefloor was full all night, and every single person at the wedding was on it at some point, if not all night. They were truly brilliant and we were blown away, everyone loved them, the dj ws brilliant also at keeping the party going. Thanks for fitting in the songs that I requested, it was great and meant a lot – we’ll have no hesitation passing on your details to anyone in future, and would be delighted to do so!! Rich was wondering if the band had any idea of some of the songs that they played, or a play list still hanging around, he loved them so much, he wanted to have like a little playlist of our wedding party to have a homecoming celebration to.

Gemma and Rich on 27th July 2013, Waterford Castle

Sorry it’s taken so long but thank you so so much for being our wedding band on 19th July, absolutely brilliant from start to finish, had everyone up all night, would highly recommend

My (now) husband and I booked the Best Men Wedding Band for our wedding in the Brooklodge Hotel in May 2013. From the moment of our first inquiry Niamh had been an absolute joy to deal with, everything ran so smoothly. Niamh was very helpful and made the whole booking process so easy. In deciding between our favourite bands we went to see each band play a few times. Niamh was great in giving us all the details of any upcoming events that the Best Men Wedding Band would be playing at so we had no problem finding the time to go see them. After the 2nd viewing we realised we’d seen the best and we went ahead and booked the band. The band themselves were so easy to deal with and they had no problem playing us a special song for our first dance – we were absolutely delighted they were able to play this for us. This was a song not on their repertoire list – we wanted a particular song but arranged differently to the original. We were expecting to be told that it couldn’t or wouldn’t be done but it was no problem. The song on the day was perfect, we were so happy. From the first dance until the band finished – they were amazing. Everyone at the wedding really enjoyed the music and thought the band were great. We also booked the Saxophonist to play with the band -we weren’t disappointed – he was brilliant. So if you’re booking a band for an event, or even better – a wedding, check out the Best Men Wedding Band – you won’t be disappointed.
Eve & Colin, 23rd May 2013, Brooklodge Hotel

Hi all,

Thank you so much for the great job you did on our wedding day on the 18th May. Everyone loved the church music by Stella and Jonathan, the drinks reception music by Jonathan and the Best Men Wedding Band’s evening music! Lots of people commented on how good it was and the dance floor was always full and we had a great time! We were both up dancing the whole night. Massive thanks to Niamh for being so organised and always so quick to reply to emails/queries, she’s great! xxx

Hello Niamh, Both myself and Marion want to say a massive “Thank You” to both yourself and the lads for a great night at our Wedding on the 13/4/13 in Trim Castle Hotel.The Lads were simply “Outstanding” with the dance floor packed from the very first song, to the last, so much so we didn’t want them to finish at all. Their set was non stop with a great genre/mix of music. All of our guests raved about how great they were on the night and in the days and weeks following our Wedding. In fact a lot of our guests felt like they had ran the marathon the next day they had danced that much !

The lads were brilliant and we cannot put into words exactly how great they were. We knew they would be good but they simply surpassed our expectations and made our Wedding night one to remember for all the right reasons. We would strongly advise all potential Brides & Grooms to book The Best Men Wedding Band ASAP and do not look anywhere else!! If anyone is ever looking for a reference as to how great they are please feel free to pass on my number. Thanks very much for helping to make our day as special as it was.

Dear Niamh and The Best Men,
Thank you so much for a wonderful night. Ye were fantastic. We danced all night long and the time the DJ came on we were truly wrecked! We never left the dance floor. Everyone thought you were fantastic and when we needed a rest, you played a song even better than the last and we had to dance on. No chance to recover at all! I wish you all the best in the future. Thanks for all the brilliant memories. You really have the best job – always making people happy.

Aine and Davie, Saturday 6th April 2013, Armada Hotel

 

To Niamh & The Best Men
Just wanted to thank you and the band for the fantastic music at our wedding on the 12th April at the Sheraton Hotel. We couldn’t have been happier with our band choice. People are still raving about them. The floor was packed from start to finish and we can honestly say that they played a massive part in making our wedding day very special. So thank ye very much, keep doing what ye are doing – it works! We will surely come across ye at more weddings in the future.
Rebecca & David, 12th April 2013, Sheraton Hotel Athlone

To Niamh, Jonathan & all the rest of The Best Men Wedding Band
We really cannot thank you enough for making our day so special. We have recommended you to all of our friends and family. And thank you for allowing me to surprise Pearse by playing the drums (badly!) Love from Rachael and Pearse
Rachael and Pearse, 22nd February 2013, Barberstown Castle

Hi Niamh,

Just wanted to send you a quick email before we went on honeymoon to say how brilliant the lads were on Saturday. The dance floor was never empty and everyone commented on how brilliant they were. We’re part of a musical society that put on a panto every year and just about every song was covered on the night, everyone thought we had pre-arranged some of the medleys with the band!!! A lot of very well dressed wedding guests dancing to their version of “Gangnam Style” will go down as one of the odder but brilliant memories of the day!!

Thanks for being one of the highlights of our day!

Love
Linda & Jon
