This is an exceptional band and an incredibly kind, sincere group of people. We liked the music they had online but hearing them live was like an unexpected quantum leap in exceeding our expectations. Their lead singer was down with flu and they totally styled it out. Incredible energy, such a consistent pace filled the air with a gift of welcome, fun and energy that was completely magical. If we could get them for every party we would!
The band came to play at my wedding and they delivered on so many levels - apart from my wife saying 'yes' they were the highlight of the day! They got everyone dancing and ensured the evening was an awesome party! The Polish guests in particular absolutely loved it as it was something new for them - and the English and Irish guests all said that it was a fantastic reception and all commented on well the band played. Not only are they excellent musicians with an extensive knowledge of Irish and European Folk Music, they are a lovely group of people as well! I would recommend them for any party or function - they were awesome and I look forward to seeing them again soon!
