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.
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!
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

The guys were fantastic such great singers and so professional. They played a great variety of music to suit all ages and the dancefloor reflected that. I would not hesitate to recommend the guys to future couples. Thank you so much!

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

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!

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.

The Best Men were featured in Jacqueline & Marc’s wedding: Australia to Ireland in September 2017.
“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.

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
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.

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!!

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.

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.
Maria & Donnacha, Marlfield House, 26th July 2014
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
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.

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!
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,

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
Carol & Conor Stafford, 19th July 2013
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
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
Lee and Claire, 18th May 2013, Cabra Castle
Thank you so much to the best men who played at our wedding on the 10th of may. Absolutely brilliant band, the dance floor was full all night and everyone commented on how great the band were! Thanks guys!!! Would recommend you to everyone.
Louise O’Connor, 10th May 2013
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.
Marion and Mark, 13th April 2013, Trim Castle Hotel
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.

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.

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
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!

AMAZING VIDEO from the Linda & Jon’s night:
We just wanted to send you a huge thank you from both of us for all your help with our Wedding music on 13th September at Carton House.
Your prompt and kind emails were much appreciated and the band were fantastic, setting up and playing without any hassle. So many people commented on the excellent band which really helps makes a Wedding. Please thank the lads for us, we will be recommending the Best Men Wedding Band to anyone we can.

The Best Men Wedding Band played at our wedding reception in the Anner Hotel in Thurles on 31 August 2012.
I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the band and the DJ on the night. They were amazing! Everyone thought they were the best band they had heard at a wedding in a long time! The dance floor was full from the minute the first dance was finished! It was so good. We had such a great night and a lot of that was owed to the amazing music played by both the band and the DJ.
If you could pass our thanks on to the guys we would be very grateful. Everything ran so smoothly from the moment we booked with you right up to and on on the night! I will definitely be recommending the Best Men Wedding Band!

Niamh, Jonathan and the rest of the band.
On behalf of my husband, our guests and myself, we would like to say thank you so much for agreeing to play at our wedding. The guests were talking about the music for weeks after.
Between the arrival reception which was so peaceful and entertaining to the full on show ye performed later on in the night.
We are not big dancers and knew for the guests to get out on the floor we needed to be too. The thought kinda sacred me but without even thinking about it we never left the floor all night. Thank you for that.
Ye played the perfect music for the crowd. From what i heard, plenty of lads went for showers during the interval only to need another before bed. We can truly say we will recommend ye to others.

Just wanted to drop a line to say thanks a million to the band for a great night on July 21st in Glasson Hotel & Golf Club. The band were brilliant and everyone had a great night. We kept meaning to take a break and leave the floor for a while but the music kept us there the whole night. A brilliant end to a great day!!
Christine & Shay

Just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks to the band for such a great performance last Friday night. The music was brilliant, the dance floor was full all night long ( to my big relief!!). The guys were amazing! Everybody raved about them, I’m sure you’ll be asked to do a few more weddings in Wexford!!
And I’d like to thank you to. You were so pleasant to deal with the band are really lucky to have you.
Thanks again Niamh,
Siobhan and Rob
22 June 2012, Danby Lodge
Niamh I really just wanted to say an unbelievably huge thank you for absolutely everything you did for us, from beginning to end, your service was absolutely flawless and I really cannot recommend you highly enough. Nothing was ever too much trouble and I honestly really appreciated all of your help and advice.
As for the music, well that was just amazing! Can you please please please tell Margot she has the most amazing voice – I know she has probably done tons of weddings over the summer but if she does remember ours, can you please tell her that everyone is still talking about how fantastic she was and that is not forgetting Jonathan!
My one and only regret was not getting to speak to him and the band on the day itself to thank them – they were even better than I could have imagined, honestly the dance floor was packed from the minute they started, seriously the manager of Ballymagarvey told me the next day it was a long time since they had a wedding as lively!!!
Anyway, I have no doubt that you are inundated with bookings and ongoing weddings as the year continues to fly by but I just wanted to say thank you and I honestly cannot tell you what a vital role the music played in making our day perfect, I know that sounds completely pathetic but it really is true!

Hi Niamh, Jonathan & Guys,
Just wanted to drop you a quick email before we head on honeymoon to say a huge thank you for the fantastic music at our wedding on Friday. The jazz duo and band were absolutely fantastic, everyone was asking us who the guys were and complimenting us on how brilliant they were. The DJ was also brilliant. The dance floor was full all night, apart from about 3 minutes when everyone was still stuffed after the evening food!!
Thanks for everything!!!
Natasha & Dave

Thank you so much for a great night, you had all the guests talking about the great band that was at Mr and Mrs’s Sweeney’s wedding, word is spreading like wildfire and I’m not surprised that you got 2014 wedding band of the year! Everyone at our wedding enjoyed it so much and so did we – I think the dancefloor said it all! Oriane x

What can say? The Best Men Wedding Band were a real touch of class at our wedding reception. They had everyone out on the floor from the first song, a real sign of a good band.
We have been inundated with rave reviews from guests who were so impressed by the music on the night. A big thanks to you and the lads (and the excellent DJ) from myself & Susan. We will definitely recommend ‘The Best Men Wedding Band’ to anyone looking to book a wedding band in the future.
All the best,

Just back off Honeymoon and back to work today so totally depressed……..
Just want to take this opportunity to thank you for all the help in arranging the music for our Wedding Day. We didn’t get a chance to speak to the guys much on the day, but all we can say is they were fantastic. Our Friends and Family are raving about how good they were, full Dance Floor all night speaks for itself I think.
We will certainly be recommending The Best Men Wedding Band to all Friends in the future.

Please pass our thanks and appreciation on to the band for playing at our wedding in the Kilkenny Ormonde.
The Jazz Duo for the drinks reception were great, not too loud to allow for conversation yet atmospheric. The 4-piece band for the after-dinner reception were fantastic and the dance floor was never empty! Our guests had a great time and were talking about them for days afterwards.
From the moment we booked The Best Men Wedding Band up until the Big Day, any dealings we had with yourself were stress and hassle-free.
Thank you so much!

I had the lads on fri at my wedding in the summerhill hotel, enniskerry and want to compliment them
As a former gigging guitarist and huge music fan, I told my then fiancee that quite simply.. I’m choosing the band! The first time I saw The Best Men Wedding Band on youtube, I wanted them. We went to a wedding fair and 30 seconds into their demo, I formed a queue. They didn’t dissappoint in the slightest. The floor was jammed right from the first dance – an amazing cover of Weller’s ‘You do something to me’, rite til the end of their set. An absolute class act that helped make the best night of our lives even better! Cheers!
Ciara & Barry

Such an amazing band! 🙂 we really enjoyed them at our reception on August 16th at The Glendalough Hotel 😀 They had everyone up dancing all night long, not one person i was talking to said anything but good things about you guys and your music! Thanks so much for playing a big part on our special day, your definately one of our memories we’ll always cherish! Thanks again to yourselves and Niamh, and we’ll definately be reccomending you for weddings and such in the future! Love Rachel and Paul Lynch 😀 xxxx
Rachel & Paul, The Glendalough Hotel, August 16th 2011
Hope you are well
I am back to reality after an amazing wedding and honeymoon.
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for all of your help and also to ask you to pass on my huge appreciate to the band for the fantastic entertainment. Everyone was commenting to me about the band and they had just the right mix of younger and older music and I didn’t get off the floor all night and was just really happy with the band and the songs, they really are excellent! So if you could pass that on to the boys, I’d really appreciate it and again thanks to you for all your help and kind words, it’s been lovely dealing with you.
Fiona, 12th August 2011, Kilronan Castle
Just a quick email to say that the band were absolutely amazing! I have nothing but praise for them.
Everybody commented on how good they were, the floor was full from the 1st song until the DJ finished. I have passed on the details to a number of people getting married next year and after. Will you please pass on my thanks to the band and tell them they were just fantastic and I will never forget the song they sang for our first dance, it was better than the original.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank both you and the band for the performance at our wedding on Friday 3rd June at Dunboyne Castle. The band were really fantastic on the night and catered for everyone’s taste in music. The following day everyone was commenting on how good they were and how much they enjoyed the night. The dance floor was never empty on the night which really is a good sign.
I also wanted to thank you for allowing my sister to sing on the night. Obviously we knew about the 1st song but the second song was a great surprise to us both.
If you could also pass on our thanks to the DJ on the night. He was really fantastic also and helped to make sure the party kept going as long as possible.
Thanks again to you all and I will be sure to recommend the band to any of my friends getting married in the future.

I want to pass on my thanks to you and the band and DJ for ensuring our wedding was swinging all day and night! Firstly, my thanks to you Niamh, you were the height of professionalism and gave me great confidence that I was dealing with a reputable outfit. On the day, the band were fabulous. The Jazz duo in the afternoon, set just the right tone – fantastic music played at just the right level, it really set the mood.
Then the band in the evening were just great, keeping everyone dancing till the early hours. I was particularly impressed that despite, thanks to very long speeches, the band’s start being delayed by about 45 mins, the band played straight through to their finish time not taking a break. This meant we didn’t lose out on much of the band’s playing time and kept the atmosphere going – brilliant! The DJ was also fab! He played all my requested songs and the exact type of music I asked for, a brilliant end to a wonderful day. So thank you Niamh – it was all fabulous!

It really was amazing, the dance floor was packed all night and we are still getting compliments on how great the band and DJ were on the night, we have watched back the wedding video and can honestly say the band sound fantastic. I’ve been recommending the band to everyone and have had people call me for their details so hopefully you’ll get some future bookings.

Myself and Kev didn’t even get a chance to talk to them. We are literally just back from honeymoon and I wanted to email you. I’m still getting text messages and emails telling me how amazing the band was!
My mam was outside talking to some elderly relatives and she said all she wanted to do was get back in dancing coz they were so fantastic!!
On behalf of myself and Kev thank you for making our day just soo brilliant!!

We just wanted to express our sincerest thanks and gratitude. The guys were fantastic. We meet them before they went on and the DJ which was great. Thank you so much for organising the music for the first dance and the guys were great, cutting it off at just the right moment- when our dance ended.
Everything was seamless and everyone commented on how good they were! They had people up dancing that have never been seen dancing before and may never been again!
Anyway thank you again so so much for all your help, you were so professional and helpful and I’d have no problem ever recommending you all to who ever you’d like!
Thank you so much!

We just wanted to send a letter saying thank you for the wonderful job and great entertainment had by all from The Best Men Wedding Band. I would have to say that out of everyone we worked with for the occasion, working with you was the easiest experience as you had everything in order and all set from the start.
Everyone absolutely loved the jazz duo at the outdoor reception as it really set the mood, and again, everyone was seriously impressed by The Best Men Wedding Band at the dance later in the evening. The DJ was brilliant and all knew exactly what to play to please all of our guests, both Irish and American, and of all ages. Every single guest danced and had a fabulous time as did myself and Mike. It was perfection and we would recommend them with much praise to anyone looking for entertainment in the future. Absolutely brilliant.
Many thanks and Best Regards

Just want to say a huge thank you to firstly you for help with arranging the Best Men Wedding Band to play at our wedding. You were a pleasure to deal with and everything ran so smoothly. Also thanks a million to all the guys in the Band for a brilliant evening. They were certainly very patient as the speeches and dinner ran over time (by quite a bit!). The best testament was that the dance floor was never empty and the lads catered for all ages in their choice of songs. All our friends and family are still telling us how great the Band was and how much they enjoyed the dance floor.
Thanks again Niamh.

Tell the lads thanks for letting our friends and family play a few songs. I had no idea that was going to happen or I would have let them know beforehand!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the lads in The Best Men Wedding Band for their performance on our wedding day on the 29th May. We had an absolutely fantastic day and night and it was largely attributed to the brilliant music they gave us. All our guests were absolutely raving about the music and some didn’t even notice that it had changed from the band to the DJ it was all so effortless with them!
We also really appreciated the service you provided where we didn’t have to worry about a thing coming up to the wedding. It’s so great that you contact us in the lead-up to remind us rather than the other way around with most suppliers!
Please pass our thanks on to all the lads and let them know we had a fantastic night with them all.

We just got back from honeymoon and I just wanted to say thank you very much to the band for playing at our wedding. They were absolutely wonderful and everyone was saying how great they are.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say that the band were just amazing at our wedding in Castle Durrow on the 12th Dec. We didn’t get a chance to thank them at the time but if you could pass on our thanks that would be great. I can’t count the number of people who have said how much they liked the band too, they really got the party going and it was a great mix of tunes for young, old and in-betweeners! The Jazz Duo were were great as well and really helped set the mood for the drinks reception.

Just a quick word to say thank you to Jonathan and the boys for their brilliant entertainment on the 21st November in the Athlone Springs. People both young and old have come back telling us how much they enjoyed the music and the dancing. The floor was kept busy all night long and their version of I Gotta Feelin in particular has become the anthem of the night.
The guys looked brilliant on stage as well and they really really got us in the mood to party! Also thanks to Jonathan for learning Jack L’s version of Can’t Get You Out of My Head, no other band would have done that for us. It was a pleasure dealing with you from the outset and we hope to see you playing at friends weddings in the coming years.
Rachel & Tomas
21st November 09, Athlone Springs Hotel
Just wanted to take a moment to send a huge thank you on to the guys. They played our wedding in October (only getting round to thank yous now!) and they were amazing. Everybody was raving about them! They played a brilliant set and had the dancefloor filled all night. They played a huge part in making our day such a wonderful experience! We are still being asked where we found the band when we’re talking to our friends!
All the best and a massive thank you.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the band, I meant to go up to them on the night but never got the chance to thank them. They were absolutly brilliant, the dancefloor was full all night everybody from my young cousins to my granny’s brother were up dancing, the music was such a great mix. Even the bar man the next day commented on how brilliant they were and how they’d never seen a dance floor fill up from the first song. Everybody truly enjoyed it and can you say a special thank you to the band for letting my granddad get up and sing a song, it meant the world to me to have him do that, something I’ll never forget!! Ill be recommending them to other brides at any chance I get!
Carol & Luke

Just want to say thank you to you and The Best Men Wedding Band for helping us have the perfect wedding day.
One of the reasons why we initially chose The Best Men Wedding Band as our wedding band was the prompt and extremely friendly and efficient service we received from you at the beginning of our enquiry which continued all the way through to our wedding day.
Along with this the band were amazing and very professional. We are still receiving fantastic reports back from our guests, of which many have commented that they are the best wedding band they have ever experienced. They kept the dance floor full all night along, as did the DJ service also, who had no problem playing any song requests that were asked of him.
We are so happy to have chosen them as our wedding band and would thoroughly recommended them to anyone.
thanks again for all your help

Thanks you so much for doing such a great job organising and performing the music for our wedding reception. We were delighted with the piano solo, the live band and the DJ, as well as the friendly and professional manner in which everything ran so smoothly on the day. I would recommend you to any of my friends and many people have commented on the quality of music throughout the day. Thanks again.

A huge thank you to you and the guys for adding to our perfect wedding day! Niamh, you were fantastic to deal with in the run up to the wedding, and you made the whole process so easy for us. When planning a wedding there are so many things that a bride and groom can worry about, but not once did we worry about the band.
On the day itself, the guys played our first song to perfection (Tom Baxter’s Better) and no offence to Tom Baxter but I liked your version more! The music you played had everyone of all ages on the dance floor and everyone had such a great time. We have all the pictures to prove it! For any bride & grooms-to-be, honestly don’t hesitate, these guys are brilliant.

I’m only getting around to emailing you and the guys now, I don’t know where those last 4 weeks have disappeared too!
Geraint and I want to thank the band for a great night in the Hamlet Court on Thursday 16th April. They did a great job entertaining the guests and kept young and old happy. My friend Michelle was so pleased with them she was offering more money for 5 more songs at the end. Sincere apologies to the lead singer for having to listen to her 🙂 !!
Thanks aswell for all your help you were so professional to deal with which made it all so easy. We will recommend you to any future bride and grooms we meet.

The Best Men Wedding Band played at our wedding in April and were fantastic, they had all our guests of all ages up dancing all night long!! We had the Jazz Duo, the Band & DJ and it worked very well & made it very easy for us to co-ordinate, it was a great idea. We left it up to band to select most of the music except our first song and some last minute requests which were all played for us without any problems.
Everyone remarked on what a great band they were. We couldn’t have asked for anymore. Many thanks Niamh for all your help and of course to Jonathan & the lads. We will definitely recommend The Best Men Wedding Band to anyone.

Just want to drop you a note to thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so memorable. People keep telling us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been at and that has a lot to do with your band and the DJ set that followed. Thanks for the flexibility of the playlist, and ending your set with a song we already loved but which is now our favourite song of all time!!! “One day like that a year’d see me right…” ‘
We’ll be recommending you to one and all.

Just back from honeymoon and just wanted you to pass on our thanks to “The Best Men Wedding Band” for a truly memorable night. They were fantastic musicians and had the dancefloor full all night. Everybody commented on how good the band were and how they were able to judge the people and music perfectly.
Most of all we had a great night thanks to the great entertainment. Would recommend to anybody.
Thanks to you too for all your help and the ease of organising.

We got married in February 2009 in the Mount Wolseley Hotel, Carlow and The Best Men Wedding Band provided a jazz duo for our pre-reception plus the band and dj for the reception. They were absolutely fantastic. They had the dancefloor packed for the entire night and we’ve heard rave reviews from our guests about how brilliant the band were. I was so tired the next day because I didn’t want to leave the dancefloor – the music was just so good. Looking back on our DVD now I see people dancing that would never have danced before. We had a few special requests and the band played every single one of them. Booking with Niamh was a dream. She was so easy to deal with. To all couples out there looking for the perfect wedding band I can highly recommend The Best Men Wedding Band. You’d be mad to get anyone else!!

We booked the jazz duo, band and DJ for our wedding in the Dunraven Arms, Adare on the 12th December and as I didn’t get a chance at the end of the night to thank them, I wanted to email to convey our thanks for their really excellent performance.
The band made our night – they sounded absolutely brilliant and the mix of music was such that the floor was never empty and most of our guests commented on how great they were.
I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

Just a quick note to say thank you to The Best Men Wedding Band for playing at our wedding on the 27th Oct. Helena and I were delighted to have chosen The Best Men Wedding Band and we both agree when we say that they played a blinder! The music was top class, clear, not too loud, perfectly blended and really added to the atmosphere on the day.
We’re delighted that we had your band play for all aspects of the reception throughout the night. We’d gladly endorse The Bestmen having received such an excellent service.

Dear Niamh and all the Best Men Wedding Band,
I wanted to email and say a huge Thank You to you all. Niamh, thanks to you for your professionalism and ease of organisation before the day itself. You were a pleasure to plan with!
The music at wedding was just awesome and we were really impressed by what the guys did. Everyone had a ball and many of the guests commented on how brilliant they were. Brad and I were especially grateful to the guys for learning those extra songs for the dances and of course for letting us sing our drunken rendition of ‘Haunted’ with them too. It was brilliant craic. If there’s anywhere you’d like me to write a review I’d be more than happy to give you glowing references. As people say, food and music make a wedding and we certainly lucked out across the board.

Thank you so much for everything, The day went fabulous. Everybody has commented on the band and the Jazz duo was a great treat for everyone they are still talking about it. We are so glad that we decided to pick The Best Men Wedding Band as they were very professional, looked really well and sang great. All the best to you and the lads. Once again thanks for everything I would definitely be recommending you to everyone I know.

We had our wedding in Moyvalley Hotel and Golf Club on the 8th of May 2008. We were let down by our first band 6 weeks before the wedding and I now believe that everything happens for a reason! The Best Men Wedding Band were by far a better band and they not only met our expections but beyond as well. The Jazz duo at the drinks reception gave a lovely atmosphere and everyone commented on how relaxed it was.
The first dance which was Tom Baxter’s song Better, dare I say it, was sung better than the man himself. They really got the crowd going and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Thank you so much for making a special day even more special.
Mr and Mrs Barry Walsh,

Tell the lads thanks a million for singing at our wedding reception last night 18/4/08. They had our guests on the dance floor for the night (I was never off it!!). Everyone were asking who they were -they made the night a great sucess.
Myself and Gary had a brillant day (feeling worse for wear today). I know of a couple of weddings next year and we would definitely recommend The Best Men Wedding Band.

I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help and advice over the past few months. The Best Men Wedding Band played at our wedding on March 28th in Brook Lodge, they were absolutely fabulous. We had the jazz band at the drinks reception, piano at the meal, the band and then DJ – Everyone commented on how great they were, the dance floor was full for the whole night. I will be recommending them to anyone that is getting married soon. I actually recommended them to the facilities manager in work, and they got them to play in work on Monday.
Once again thanks so much, The Best Men Wedding Band really are fantastic!

The guys played at my wedding on Nov 9th in Dunboyne Castle. Am just back from honeymoon and I didn’t get the chance at the end of the day to thank all of the guys in the band, so wanted to email you to say how wonderful they were the whole day.
They played a brilliant mix of music and were extremely professional. As you’re aware the music at a wedding is extremely important and can leave a lasting impression, well the dance floor was packed all night and so many of our guests had blisters on their feet from dancing and passed on their compliments on the music. The guys were just great. I’ll definitely be recommending you.

Mark and I have just returned from honeymoon and all of the wedding plans seems like a distant memory. Just a note of thanks for such a professional job. The Best Men Wedding Band were fantastic.
All of guests commented and everyone was up dancing. We had a fantastic night. The Jazz duo were excellent and the DJ kept everyone dancing till late. They really made our day very special. Thanks for helping us with all aspects of the music, and for dealing with our booking so well. The only complaint was that it all went too fast. Thanks to all The Best Men Wedding Band.
P.S. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Best Men Wedding Band are an outstanding wedding band!

Just a quick note to thank you guys so much for Saturday day and night. The jazz duo and band were really extraordinary and everyone was raving about them. They really made our day and night special.

We were absolutely delighted and thrilled with the Best Men Wedding Band, they were a pleasure to deal with and had the dance floor packed all night. The jazz duo were also excellent. Most of our guests commented on how great the band were!!! I dont think i have ever commented on any band that i saw at a wedding!!!
Jonathan & the guys were true professionals who read the crowd well and knew exactly what mix to play to keep the dancefloor packed all night. I couldn’t believe it when i saw aunts & uncles, who never graced the dancefloor at other weddings i was at, dancing and having a ball on the dancefloor at our wedding!!!
The DJ set was also brill as johnathan included lots of songs i had requested and they seemed to go down well.
Without a doubt, I will be highly recommending the Best Men Wedding Band to all my friends and colleagues getting married in the future. In addition to their immense talent, the jazz, band and DJ package which we chose for our wedding was probably, the best decision we made regarding the day itself.
I wish you and the guys all the best in the future Niamh, and thank you for being such a pleasure to deal with. Our special day wouldn’t have been the same without the band!!

I recently got married in Dublin and held my reception at The Grand Hotel in Malahide. It was a wonderful day and was incredible for my Washington DC born husband to return to Ireland with me with some 40 or so of his family members.
Our band and DJ that night were the Best Men Wedding Band Band.
And I just wanted to drop you a line to say that they were amazing!….and kept us all, including myself up on the dance floor all night…..(whoever said Brides don’t get the chance to enjoy themselves on their big day obviously never had these guys) I have to say knowing our guests were of mixed generations and backgrounds they catered so well!, a definite fear of mine whilst planning. They were even conscientious enough to have found our “first dance” song, an obscure Dave Matthews’s tune.
Niamh, their booking agent was also great to deal with, not knowing what to expect she was a great help. The guys themselves were so nice and very professional on the day, even taking requests from my husband’s family. I would highly recommend them to any new Bride planning her big day.
Aine & Ted Horan,

The Best Men Wedding Band played at our wedding recently and they are absolutely brilliant. They are really professional looking and sounding and had everyone swinging on the dance floor. We also booked the Jazz Duo and we loved them – perfect for the drinks reception. We would highly recommend The Best Men Wedding Band and Niamh, their booking agent, is also a pleasure to deal with and you can trust everything will go smoothly on the night.

Just a quick note to thank you, the Jazz duo and the Best Men Wedding Band.
Unfortunately I didn’t get to see much of the Jazz Duo due to the Photos but all guests commented on how terrific they were.
I did get to hear most of The Best Men Wedding Band who were fantastic and kept everyone on the dance floor. So thanks a million to you all!

The Best Men Wedding Band played at our wedding in August and they were absolutely superb, they had all the guests of all ages up dancing all night.
We left it up to them to select the music except the first song and they really read the crowd well.
Everyone remarked on what a great band they were.
Many thanks Niamh for all of your help and of course to the lads, Jenny.
