Wedding Bands are a hugely popular choice for entertainment and probably the most requested wedding entertainment idea. Bands are the ultimate crowd pleaser and we have a variety of award winning bands to suit your style and taste.

The Event Band is not your stereotypical wedding band; this is wedding entertainment on a grand scale. We’ll work with you to plan and create an exciting opportunity to wow your wedding guests and create the ultimate entertainment experience on your big day.

3. Wedding Ceremony Music

The ceremony is where the celebration really begins and we’ll help you plan ceremony entertainment that reflects your identity as a couple. For your wedding ceremony, we have lots of  entertainment ideas that you can choose from. If you prefer a more classical sound you might like to opt for the traditional stylings of a piano and vocals or maybe even a string quartet for that added element of class.

Acoustic music is also a hugely popular choice among couples for their big day. We have a number of guitar and vocal accompaniment acts that can serenade you as you say “I do”. The wedding entertainment you choose for your ceremony will set the tone for your entire day so we’ll help you make the best choice and start on the right note.

4. Electric Dreams

For couples looking for that added special element, Electric Dreams is a great entertainment idea for wedding ceremony music that’s more upbeat and modern. The act consists of a trio of piano, guitar and two vocals to create a celebration sound for your wedding entertainment. Electric Dreams can create a sound that’s as modern or traditional as you like and really suits you both as a couple.

5. Wedding Drinks Reception

Drinks reception or pre-dinner entertainment is something that many wedding couples now opt for and we have plenty of wedding reception entertainment ideas for you to choose from. This can sometimes be the point in the day when wedding guests are forgotten about but we can help you plan reception entertainment that will keep your guests entertained while you steal some precious time to maybe take photographs or enjoy a few moments together as newlyweds.

We’ll assist you in planning wedding entertainment that carries your theme and ambiance through from your ceremony to your drinks reception and beyond. For example, Some Kind of Swing are a great option for merging the classical and the modern to create a sophisticated and jazzy sound while the summer stylings of Uke Box will bring that summer festival wedding vibe to your big day.

6. Wedding DJ’s

DJs are a staple in the wedding entertainment catalogue but we think our DJs have a bit more edge. Irish weddings are famous for keeping the party going late into the wee hours and with our DJs on the decks the party never stops.

If it’s a traditional deck spinning DJ you’re looking for we can provide that and we can also create a unique combination of DJ, saxophone, percussion or any other sound you’d like, to create a party piece that’s catered specifically toward your wedding celebration. Let’s face it, on your big day you want to hear the songs and sounds that you love and from pop to rock, hip-hop to rap and everything in between our DJs promise to keep the dance floor filled and the party going strong.

7. Singing Waiters

There are loads of ways to incorporate music and entertainment ideas into your wedding day to make memories and put a smile on everyone’s face. Singing waiters are a fun way to surprise your guests and keep the party atmosphere going straight through dinner. Our waiters are handy with a stack of plates but they also have the pipes to match and will enthral your dinner guests and bring something fun and quirky to your wedding entertainment. Sit back and enjoy watching your guest’s faces as they are served with a song.

8. Totally Irish

Irish dancers and performers are a hugely popular wedding entertainment idea. Nothing says Irish wedding like a bit of jigs and reels. We have a number of totally Irish acts that range from the classic and traditional to a more modern Irish fusion. If you’re looking to add an element of Irish tradition to your celebration, we’ve a number of music and dance acts that will suit your tastes while also bringing traditional Irish entertainment up to date with a modern twist.

9. Second Day Entertainment

Many Irish weddings are now embracing the second day trend and turning their wedding into a two-day event and we don’t blame them. Who wouldn’t want their wedding day to last forever? Incorporating music and entertainment ideas into your second day is a great way to keep the wedding party atmosphere going.

If you’re looking to keep your guests entertained right the way through your celebration, all of our acts and performers can be adapted into the perfect day two wedding entertainment so the party never has to stop.
