We’ll give you a brief outline of the prices available for these Dublin wedding bands, available nationwide and all across Leinster from alternative wedding bands to your formal regular style.
A starting point is always to try and read the band’s testimonials backed up by an assurance from the agency or band post-COVID that your deposit can move forward. If, and should your date change. It’s a super important essential, when you’re chatting with the bands, to always make sure that all production travel sound equipment is included. So there are no nasty surprises at the end of the night, I strongly advise always ensuring that you make sure you have a booking form in place, which clearly details all your prices of balances so there are no surprises at the end of the night.
A good idea is always to chat with the bands, about the songs, and the style. The first dance, and if your budget permits, maybe ask if you can add a brass section, which is always a personal favorite of mine
Booking with great agencies provides you with the backup and knowledge, locally, so that you don’t have to worry about the thing. The one great advantage of dealing with an agency is, of course, that should, and if anything occurs with the band, or somebody gets ill, an agency will provide you with an immediate alternative. It’s good to have these options in place. It’s kind of like your insurance.

They are a firm favorite of the IRFU and are regularly performed at homecomings for massive celebrations. That Irish rugby attained in the last few years. The band features a live five-piece group which can go up to a six or seven-piece by adding brass like saxophone and trumpet, which is a welcome addition. They are the perfect Dublin-based wedding band, as many of the leading members were formerly from a very very well-known rock group that shall remain nameless, but had a number-one hit with “We can be lovers”. They’ve also been featured on TV quite a number of times. As the featured band for the massive wedding competition prize on Ray Darcy’s TV show, alongside the fact that Laura O’Neill, the band’s lead singer featured as an Irish Eurovision finalist is a real powerhouse. They perform music from all genres, and all styles. So it’s a great mix. They’re based centrally in Dublin and prices offered include discounts for midweek weddings, so always it’s good to ask.

Also always don’t forget to ask about what deals are offered for the DJ after the band. I know when you book with audio networks, they always offer a reduced-price deal. When you booked the band and DJ together. Adding to this you can always ask for drinks reception music as well. Don’t forget you can also try and ask for after-dinner entertainment in the form of singing waiters’ deepest singing waiters or the opera singing waiters, or why not add a quick 30-minute bump up with something like the Celtic drummers an Irish dance show, maybe just leading in before the band. It’s a great way of boosting the energy levels in the room, just before the band and DJ go on and just after the meal.
