Lets face it. There is no substitute for the excitement and energy that a live band can provide at your wedding.

Choosing the perfect band for your wedding is so important and getting it right can lead to a lifetime of great memories. Sure, the music is only one of the elements which contribute to the perfect wedding, but that doesn’t finding the best wedding band is a task that will take care of itself. That’s why we’ve put together a short list of things to consider when hiring a wedding band in Ireland.

So what should you look for when hiring a wedding band?


Firstly, you should check out their repertoire or setlist and see if it matches your tastes or expectations. Since your wedding will see you entertaining countless guests, it is so important to ensure you provide something for everyone, both young and old! If there is a particular song you would love to hear on your special day, be sure to let your wedding band know well in advance so they can add your request to the setlist.
