Hi all, Just wondering if anyone has seen Irish Weavers/Micheal Kennedy band play at a wedding recently? What were they like? I remember they were good when I saw them at a friends wedding years ago but I think the crowd at the wedding was a little older. Are they better suited to an older crowd? I know there are some reviews here but they are from a few years back so I would really appreciate any recent feedback Thanks for your help! :)

They played at my parents wedding anniversary last year. Good fun, had the crowd up dancing but it was an older crowd and it was more traditional. I wouldnt personally have them for a younger crowd but it depends on your taste...

Thanks Kinsale! I thought that might be the case, its just hard to find a band that suits everyone. The band is without a doubt the most stressful part of this whole thing!!! Back to the search O:|

If your in the cork area would you look at cadillac cats? Do a great imelda may/ rockabilly set but also do 60's, rock, current stuff. Check them out on youtube. I have their number if you need it?

Thanks Kinsale, I just went to their site and they sound great! I just need to find a band that can play 4/5 waltzes also but I will definitely add them to the new shortlist :-)
