The best wedding band! The band was incredible, really made our day, everyone raved about the band. The music, energy and just their sound was amazing. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone to book for your wedding, you will not regret. One of the best decisions I made was booking The Good Times, made the day!

The Event Band are absolutely amazing. We had them for our wedding in December and they had everyone up dancing from the very first song. People were so impressed with the professional set up - lights, podiums etc. We would highly recommend the Event Band!

The Event Band played for our wedding on September 16th 2022. Entertainment was a big priority for us for our wedding day as we wanted our guests to have as much fun as possible and booking The Event Band was 100% the right choice! The lighting and set up really elevated the talented singers and musicians and when they started to play everyone stood on the dance floor dancing, facing the band like a concert as they were just in such amazement! The Event Band had the dance floor full and the party going for the whole night! Thank you, Calvin & Suzanne Murphy

Hands down the best wedding band! I used to photograph weddings so trust me when I say I have seen A LOT of wedding bands. I wanted a band that wouldn't play all of the typical songs played at all weddings - I wanted it to be unique and to bring the party. The Event Band is that and so much more!!! They were a breeze to work with, so professional, and made our day the most memorable. Don't hesitate, book The Event Band!!!

WOW I can’t thank Shane and the band enough for what the created. From the moment I started to communicate with Shane I knew it was something special. The attention to detail blew me away. As our guests arrived for dinner Keith and Aoife started the party off. We struggled to get everyone to sit cause all they wanted to do was dance. Then Jenny started to sing which brought our wedding party in WOW I had goosebumps. As dinner was served the team interacted and really set the standards for the rest of the evenings. After dinner the full 10 piece started and AMAZING. All anyone has spoke about is the band. The Event band are the best band and nothing like I have ever seen before. I’d get married again just to have them again.

    Good Times in Barcelona!!

    We were so delighted when Good Times agreed to come to Spain to play at our wedding. Both the church music and afters were exactly what we’d hoped for. They had the dance floor full for the night with hit after hit which created a fantastic atmosphere. They also supplied our wedding Dj too, who we danced with till the early hours . Thanks to you all for being a massive part of our special day.

    Unforgettable Wedding Experience

    We were over the moon to have Good Times band on our wedding day. Providing the music for the ceremony and reception, playing all the songs we wanted and how we wanted, nothing was an issue! As for our first dance , they played it exactly how we wanted and the dance floor was absolutely packed all night. They were absolutely incredible. We saw them at a wedding 2 years previous in Bellingham Castle. The following year, having already booked them, we saw them again in Mount Druid at a friend's wedding and once again, they were amazing. Shane is so easy to work with and Jenni has such a beautiful voice. We would love to do it all again and if we did they would be one of the first things we'd make sure and book!! Thanks again, Jim & Helen 3rd August 2019 Segrave House Co.Louth

    Enjoyable Wedding Music

    I know everyone says this about their wedding band, but Goodtimes really are an amazing band and the dance floor really was full all night! We had never seen them play before our wedding, but I knew after chatting to Shane and looking at their stuff online that they were exactly what we were looking for. They are a really cool, modern wedding band but still play a bit of everything to suit every guest of every age. Both the lead singers have amazing voices and the musicians are amazing. Loads of our guests have asked us their name since the wedding. Shane was really easy to deal with and really put my mind at ease, considering we were paying a deposit with a band we had never met before. All correspondence was responded to and they learned our first dance especially for us. I would HIGHLY recommend them!! Thank you so much, Linda & Colin 26th July 2019 Sligo Park Hotel
