Flog tha Dog were absolutely top class from start to finish. So easy to contact and book initially. Steve was an absolute pleasure to deal with in the lead up and the band learned Harvest Moon specially for our first dance. On the day of the wedding the band were absolutely unbelievable! Non stop craic from start to finish, great tunes and great interaction and craic with the crowd! All our guests were raving about them afterwards and we agreed that they made our day so much fun. Couldn't recommend Flog the Dog more!

Flog the dog are an absolute must for anyone booking a wedding! The dance floor was packed for the full set. Even a month after our wedding, our friends and family are still talking about them. The interaction they had with our guests was fantastic and involved dance offs, signing and birthday celebrations. We feel so lucky to be able to have flog the dog for our wedding!

We had Flog the Dog for our wedding in October 2021 and they are without doubt the best wedding band we have ever heard. The dance floor was full all night and they played a brilliant variety of songs. Steve is a gentleman and a pleasure to deal with, very helpful with any queries we had in the lead up to our wedding. All of our guests were hugely impressed by them and we have had a number of people wondering who they were since our big day. We’d recommend them to anyone, you won’t be sorry.

We booked Flog the Dog soley from their videos and boy they did not dissapoint. When covid hit and our wedding plans were thrown up in the air, Steve was incredibly supportive all the way through. Regardless of restrictions, we were always getting married on the 3rd of October. That date did come and we got to celebrate with forty of our nearest and dearest family and friends. Not only did we feel so safe in our hotel we had the best craic with Flog the Dog. Hands down it was the best wedding we were ever at!! Flog the Dog catered for all ages and their 2000s dance medley at the end was class! Guests and staff raved about the band! Our guests commented on how relaxed and intimate our wedding was. The best things do come in small packages. We were truly blessed. Thanks a mil to Steve and the rest of Flog the Dog, you were unreal, even if you did leave Kerry win the dance off!

We had flog the dog for our wedding at the end of February and my god if we could give anyone any advice it would be to stop the search and book them now! They were amazing from the frequent contact to learning many new songs for our day, to bringing the absolute craic to our wedding. They provide all if the music for our day ( ceremony, drinks reception, band and DJ and I would recommend taking the whole package with them) They were amazing! Each and every member of the band are so lovely and made our day the best day ever and they are super talented. I really could not recommend them highly enough and I hope to be a guest at many weddings they play in the future. Thanks for everything!

Where to even start!! Do not look any further than Flog the Dog! We booked the lads for our wedding on New Years Day this year and the guests are still talking about them and wanting to know where they can go see them again!!! We had a crowd that was really mixed old and young and Steve was well able to read the crowd and knew exactly how to interact with them to ensure they were enjoying the night! Would definitely recommend to anyone book them fast!!

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! We honestly cannot recommend Flog the Dog highly enough....They were genuinely so much fun, extremely professional and had everyone up dancing ALL night. We had a large wedding with approx 200 people and the dance floor was full all night long. (even people who we didn't think would dance were up dancing) The band interacted with the crowd which made it great fun and the music was absolutely top class. Would recommend to anyone thinking about getting Flog the Dog as their band for their wedding or whatever occasion.

We booked Flog the Dog for our destination wedding at the Waterford Castle. They were nothing short of amazing. They kept our guests dancing and entertained through the whole night. They played a wide variety of music that everyone loved and could sing along with. Not only were they fun, they all sounded amazing and are very talented. They truly made our wedding an amazing party and was our favorite part of the whole night. I would book them again and again. Do not hesitate and book this amazing band!

Flog the Dog played for our wedding after party in the Thatch Bar in Lisselton in Kerry last weekend. We had seen them play a year before at a friends wedding & booked them immediately for our own. Well last Saturday night, they did not disappoint! They are incredible musicians and one of the best wedding bands we have ever seen. The front man Steve interacts with the crowd the entire time & has a way of getting the crowd going within minutes. Along with their lighting & smokey haze effects, our guests felt they were at a concert! The smokers commented on the fact they didn’t want to be outside for fear of missing a song! Our guests who had come from London have been asking if the band would fly to London for events. Flog the Dog took the roof off the Thatch Bar last weekend and every single one of our guests (young and old) were on their feet. We will be forever grateful to them for making our wedding after party the best night we could have ever imagined. BOOK THIS BAND!!!

We had Flog the Dog for our wedding reception and DJ, they were absolutely amazing! Our family were raving about them all night and people who wouldn’t normally dance at functions weren’t off the dance floor much that night. Steve was great to communicate with even when I was emailing updated Dj lists to him a few days before the wedding. Would definitely recommend them to any engaged couple!

Getting this band for our wedding was some of the best spent money on our day.... The only problem, we didnt want them to finish! We have had numerous comments from friends and family regarding how great the band were. If you want a wedding band who have great energy, banter and fantastic songs then i would highly recommend them to anyone who'll listen. The best wedding band we have ever encountered, the floor was never empty. My sides hurt from laughing, they were so interactive and i had a stitch from dancing! Steve was brilliant to deal with, very approachable and happy to answer any questions we had. Very quick to come to us! 100% guarantee you wont be disappointed with this band!!!

If anyone is looking for an interactive band that will get your crowd going these are the ones to go for and they play for both young and old. Flog the Dog even learned some Mumford and Sons for our first dance which was so special! I cannot thank ye enough and needless to say we are still being asked where did we find ye.

Flog the Dog made our wedding dance! We could not have asked for better. They kept everyone going and the dance floor full from start to finish. They even went to the effort of learning and adding a few Scottish songs to their playlist which delighted our Scottish wedding guests. Everything was very personalised and they made a real effort to get to know our guests and what they enjoyed listening and dancing to. Nothing was too big an ask for them. They kept in touch with us regularly from booking until the big day and always replied to emails quickly. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough! Thanks guys!!

Everytime we happened to get away to Kerry Flog the Dog happened to be playing, so when it came to planning our wedding they seemed like the perfect fit. Steve and the band were lovely from the off set and even when it came to us picking out first dance song then changing our mind about 15 times (and as close to two days before the wedding) we were met with "no problem, that's grand". On the night of the wedding expectations were exceeded and with our permission which the band sought first, they allowed our nephews (aged six) to join them on stage for a number of songs. We're married two months and the kids still think they're celebrities. Thanks to Steve and the gang for everything. If I got to do it all again, we'd still book flog the dog every time ????

After an extensive search for a band, we came upon Flog the Dog on facebook. With the wedding taking place roughly a 7 hour drive from where the band is based, we rang them up and there was no issue. We where quite apprehensive with not knowing the band beforehand and with the distance between us but it was worth it. Flog the Dog surpassed all our exceptions and we can not thank them enough. They played to suit all age groups at our wedding and managed to keep a crowd on the floor at all times. It never emptied!! Each member of the band give 100% and they made the evening feel very personal to us and our guests. We would tell any couple thinking of booking this band to just DO IT!!

Having booked Flog the Dog, we knew they were going to be good but they still managed to blow us away on the night! The dance floor was full all night long, so much so I think everyone was exhausted by the time the DJ came on! It was just belter after belter with them! You know you are on to a winner when the wedding coordinator in the Brehon tells you the band you booked are the best around at the moment and she wasn’t wrong!! The feedback has been so positive from our guests; people taking the name for future weddings, checking them up online afterwards and the music teacher in my school commenting on the insane talent of the fiddle player!! One couple missed their daughters engagement party because they were enjoying themselves so much they didn’t leave on time!! The band really is the most important aspect of a wedding reception and I can safely say if anyone is to book Flog the Dog in the future they will have made the best decision for their big day! Steve, was a pleasure to deal with and incredibly professional from the word go!!

One word - AMAZING! Seriously unreal from start to finish! Such a brilliant mix of music for the entire set. The guys were so interactive with the crowd, getting the craic going and playing games on the dance floor (if that’s not your thing I’m confident they can read the room and focus it solely on the music). People could not stop talking about the band after our wedding - it has been mentioned in every single thank you card and text we have received! This is not your average wedding band, it’s fun and young and folk and cool - their aesthetic is literally a mix of all those things! If you are looking to avoid matching suits, sunglasses and brown eyed girl - book this band! Though I’m sure they could play brown eyed girl if you want cos everyone loves Van! We had the best day and want to thank Steve and the gang so much!

Fantastic band !! Really great playlist and sounded amazing. Got everyone up and dancing .we had so much great feed back from from our guests . We were running 2 hours late because of a fee things that happened in the day. Steve and the whole band had to wait outside for 2 hours! We were sooooo embarrassed. But they were so graceful and relaxed about the whole thing it really calmed us down.before the wedding they gave great advice about music and just sorted everything!. We can thank them enough :)

Hey, Katie. Thanks for this review. Don’t worry I’m the slightest, we always turn up early anyway so it was no issue waiting around.

Where do I start...Steve and the guys were just amazing! We are married nearly two months and our guests are still talking about them. We had a small wedding of 57guests so we were worried that it would be hard to create an atmosphere and fill the dancefloor with that number so we spent a long time searching for the right band. We both love trad music and always manage to get rattlin bog played anywhere we go so when we came across a clip on youtube of Flog the Dog singing this song along with more recent music we knew it would be a perfect fit. Steve played at our drinks reception and everyone mentioned that he created a brilliant atmosphere. Actually 3 guests (who don't know each other) all got his details for their own weddings! He really set the tone for the day and helped us kick off the party in style! Then the guys really kicked things off after dinner. The dancefloor was barely empty all night! They played everything and knew how to read the crowd. One of my favourite memories is when they split the floor into two and got us to do a singing battle of the Proclaimers 500miles - so funny! I also asked them to learn a song that was pretty special to myself and my bridesmaids and they did an amazing job of it. I can keep going on but I honestly cannot recommend them enough. If you are looking for a bit of craic and banter and a filled dancefloor then flog the dog are the band for you. Also, i loved the reaction i got everytime i told someone the name of the band! Music is so important when it comes to your wedding and thankfully we got it right - everyone is still talking about them! (had to repeat that because I got asked about them again only last week)
Response from Flog The Dog
Thanks for the fantastic review, Sarah. Amazing to hear that we made the day that bit more special for you both. Your guests were great fun to be fair and we're glad you enjoyed our version of 500 Miles. We just had to get a bit of Rattlin' Bog in as well. We're delighted to hear we made your guests' night one to remember! We are hugely encouraged and thrilled by that feedback. Many congratulations to you both and once again, thank you for having us be a part of your big day.

Flog the Dog played for our ceremony and then our evening band and dj. They were amazing. They played the music to suit our crowd. They kept the dance floor busy. Great entertainers. They were not cheesy which I hate in a wedding band. I would recommend them time and time again. All my guests said how great they were and are still talking about it. Book them or you’ll miss out!

We cannot recommend "Flog the Dog "highly enough.From our initial enquiry and throughout our correspondence with Steve he could not have been more helpful and curtious. We got Flog the Dog to play at the wedding ceremony,reception and the disco music which was one of the best decisions we made. Their music catered for all ages and tastes.During the planning stages Steve sent us on their playlists of their various types of music that they play from which really was extremely helpful to us. We have to credit them for been very efficient when setting up their equipment once the meal had finished. Their sound within the ballroom was just perfect. They added great fun and craic throughout the reception music with their interaction with ourselves and the guests. Our guests gave numerous compliments to the band. Again we cannot recommend Steve and all in Flog the Dog highly enough as they really helped make our wedding very memorable. Many thanks again to Steve and all in Flog the Dog. Aidan & Rosaleen
Response from Flog The Dog
Hold On To Your Hat, because we nearly lost ours as we were blown away by how awesome you guys were from the first dance to the last (Riverdance). We've never seen a man sweat as much as Aidan did that night from all the dancing he was doing. Must he be an endurance athlete or something? Rosaleen, we have to commend you on the song choices you sent us. We loved listening and learning the likes of Galtee Mountain Boy and Derek Ryan. We'll be keeping those ones in the set for a good while yet. Thanks again, folks. Chat to ye soon.

Steve and the team were fantastic at our wedding. We got married at home in Ireland but live in Scotland so never got the chance to see Flog the Dog play live before our wedding but we weren't disappointed. We gave the band one or two songs that we would like to have played but apart from that we left it to them. We had a mixed of ages for our guests but everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and even a few months later people comment on how good the band were. Our venue was small but they don't have any loud instruments. A sign of a good band is having a full dance floor and we had that from the moment they started until they finished. Would highly recommend Flog the Dog

Steve was so brilliant to deal with from start to finish! His music made our ceremony so special and he even accommodated us by learning a new song for the ceremony. And our guests couldnt stop raving about the drinks reception music. Steve also went above and beyond by providing a mic and amplification at the last minute for our celebrant so we could have our ceremony outdoors. The quality of the sound was really top class! We'll be recommending him to everyone! Thanks so much Steve!

Fantastic band. Did an amazing job at our wedding! 5 stars for sure! The dance floor was full literally all night long and all of our guests were saying how great the band was. Steve was so friendly and helpful in the lead up to our wedding and answered all of my e-mails really quickly as I was planning the wedding from Scotland. When I met the other band members at the wedding (and by accident the day after the wedding) they were really nice too! They also acted as DJ for the end of the night and took all of our playlist requests as well as adding in some extra songs. The band really engaged the guests - including playing some Scottish and Irish ceilí dances. There was a great atmosphere all night thanks to the massive effort the band was putting in. We were delighted we booked them and would highly recommend Flog the Dog to anyone.

We had Flog the Dog play for our wedding reception in the Rivercourt Hotel in Kilkenny on July 27th 2018. We had spent a lot of time looking for a band and wanted a band that would be unique but also cater for the music tastes of all of our guests. We could not have been any happier with our choice of band. The dance-floor was full from start to finish and all of the music requests that we asked for were catered for and more. The variety of music was just perfect. Steve and the rest of the guys are great fun and just a pleasure to deal with as well as being fantastic musicians and singers. Steve spent a lot of time learning about us and our guests which made for great interaction with our guests on the night and great craic!!exactly what we had hoped for! Even when there was a slight delay in getting the lads into the room on the night, they were quick to reassure us that they would still play for the full set-time to ensure we didn't miss out. We also booked the DJ service, so when the band finished their last song, Steve was on the decks in no time at all (less than a minute) to keep the party going. The only advice that I could give to anyone thinking about booking this band is to go ahead and do it!! won't be disappointed. A lot of our guests are still talking about the band and there are a lot of new Flog the Dog fans in Kilkenny for sure.

We organised our wedding in Ireland from Australia so unlike most couples we hadn’t got the chance to check out bands playing at other venues. We had YouTube and are we lucky we had because we’d not have found Flog the Dog anywhere in Dublin or Tyrone. The thing that drew us to the band was the fun factor and the fact they are all musicians !!! They played our kind of music and lots more to suit our guests. The band had the crowd dancing all night and we couldn’t thank them more. Everyone remarked on how great they were and asked how did we find them. We had a special situation as it was the first time both families had ever met but Steve and the band had no problems getting them to mix and party together. We didn’t want the set to end they could have played all night. The other stuff. . . . Communication and response was great from the band once we had found them we needed to see if they were available and time wasn’t on our side 4 months out from the wedding. Steve was in touch the same day and once we decided between our top two we contacted Steve again and made the booking. We were sent a song/music form what kinda music, first dance etc and any special requests or details so everything was easy as. Nothing stressful very easy to work going and professional. we were absolutely delighted we found these guys can’t recommend them more.
Response from Flog The Dog
Thanks, James and Katherine. A pleasure to play for you and your guests. Even the journey up to Cavan was a bit of craic. I'm glad to hear that our methods of communication and booking process were very helpful to you. We learn from every booking we receive and if we need to adapt to any situation to make life easier for you then that's what we do. Always happy to help in any way possible. And it paid off and we had a terrific night. Thanks again for having us up and we will meet again if we ever get over to Oz!

We had Flog the Dog play at our wedding on the 9th of June 2018 in Vienna Woods Cork, and they were absolutely brilliant. From the start they were excellent to deal with, responding promptly to any queries that we had. We were asked for a few songs that we might like to hear, which were all played superbly, and they learned the song that we requested for our first dance. Everyone was up dancing, and they really got the crowd going. All of our friends and family complimented on the band and how good they were. Myself and my wife highly recommend Flog the Dog to be anyone's wedding band. The range of music played is second to none. Brilliant band and excellent to deal with. Highly Recommend.

Can't rate Steve and John highly enough for the entertainment they provided on our big day. The drinks reception was a standout highlight for most of our guests. The lads read the crowd so well and provided exactly what we and the whole wedding party were looking for, a happy, upbeat, lively background music that got people in the mood for the party later (which Flog the Dog also performed at). Excellent value for money, quick to come back to you with on any query and happy to oblige any requests. If you can get them - do it! You won't regret it.

Flog the dog were incredible at our wedding, it's the number one element that our guests have commented on apart from the weather! They create such a fantastic atmosphere, they read the crowd really well and are very flexible.Their set list was so good no-one wanted to leave the dance floor. Chris and I would book them again in a heartbeat. We were married in Meath, and had them travel from Kerry so provided hotel rooms, this wasn't a bother and well worth the extra organisation. We would definitely go and see them again next time they are playing near us. Thank you flog the dog!!!

My husband Sean and I chose Flog the Dog for our wedding band after we saw them bring Scotts courtyard in Killarney to life one bank holiday weekend. We were looking for a band that would start strong, keep people on the dance floor, and play a mix of traditional and modern music to ensure that everyone was able to have a dance – They did not disappoint. From day one, they were great to deal with, an excellent price and made sure that all my visions came to life. They nailed our first dance, Thin Lizzy Dancing in the moonlight, and the floor was packed from start to finish. My 8 month pregnant cousin laughed that she was suppose to go home early but could not leave the dance floor. They played a great mix that catered for all and even allowed my Dad to sing a song with them, which was very special to my family. The transition from band to DJ was seamless and both the guests and the hotel asked for their name for future reference. If you are looking for a lively band, that goes with the flow and can play anything, you should get onto Flog the Dog immediately, we were delighted with their service and they truly brought our night to life.

We cannot begin to explain how professional yet easy going everyone is, by far the easiest part of the wedding planning was booking the band and we were not disappointed. The moment that Flog The Dog played the first chord they kept the dance floor packed all night, We didn't choose any music but left it to the band to decide and they were incredible in their choices and diversity. 3 months on and our guests are still talking about how good the band were and where they can buy CD's / T Shirts from!

I was recommended Steve et al by a friend when I was searching for a local Kerry band to play the second day of our wedding. Immediately, I was struck by Steve's responsiveness (I was contacting him on New Years Eve) and professionalism when he sent through the bespoke booking form. The big day came around (Day 2 BBQ) and there was a lot of sorry looking heads on the circumference of the dance floor and my expectations for the crowds readiness to go again were low. This concern was instantly put to rest as soon as Flog the Dog started their set. I've been to a lot of weddings but I've never seen a band engage with a crowd and have the craic like these guys while keeping the quality of the music so high. The crowd were blown away and in the weeks that followed the texts and mails looking for the name of the Day 2 band started to pour in. Our only regret was that they didn't perform the wedding reception itself. This band is quality!

Wow, Dave, thanks so much for this review. We’re thrilled with this and it was a privilege to play for the wedding afters. Everyone was so welcoming and humble when we arrived.

Flog the Dog created a truly wonderful party atmosphere at our evening reception, the dance floor was full from the off and friends and family continue to tell us how brilliant the band was! They played a wonderful range of music with their own individual sound and twist clear in each track, song and medley, making the most of the great instruments and musicians in the band. They were responsive to all our individual requests, questions and suggestions throughout the months leading up to the wedding, and took the time to learn a folk song which the bride sung as a surprise to the groom and guests. We feel very lucky to have had Flog the Dog as part of our wedding day and we can't recommend them highly enough!

INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE!! Steve, Paul, Tanya and the rest of the band exceeded our expectations in every way! Enough cannot be said about how thrilled we were to have them play our wedding. From the very beginning, Steve was easy to work with in planning our big day from across the world in the U.S. They were able to accommodate every request and need we had from start to finish. We initially didn't have the budget to allow us to book Flog the Dog but after working with Steve, we came up with a package both parties were happy with. If I have one piece of advice for couples getting married, it's to not settle for a mediocre band to play your reception! At the end of the day, your guests will remember the fun they had after the ceremony more than anything else. I can assure you that Flog the Dog was worth every penny and more than the fee they request. We are still reliving the night of entertainment they provided to us and our guests! We have several soon to be married couples that attended our wedding and would love to have them come to the U.S. and play their own weddings! From what Steve told us... that is something they would do! ;) Highest praise to Steve and all the Flog the Dog members for their professionalism and pure musical talent! I would recommend them to absolutely anyone wanting to have the best post wedding entertainment imaginable! Thanks Flog the Dog!! You guys rocked! Can't wait to come back to Ireland and see you play another show! -Jacob and Amber

Thanks so much lads!

Flog the Dog played at our wedding reception in Ballyroe Heights Hotel and they were amazing! They created a great fun atmosphere and had everyone up dancing,both young and old. The sound was brilliant and everyone we met complimented us on our choice of band. We had such a fun night with the band and every bit of feedback we got from guests was beyond positive. They were very professional to deal with and so obliging. I would highly recommend them for anyone's big day!!

Flog the dog played at our wedding at jacks in cromane in August. They were absolutely incredible from start to finish and all the guests have since commented on how brilliant they were. They sang our first dance which we absolutely loved and even preferred it to the original version! Would highly recommend these for a wedding, they are great at reading the crowd as well and playing what the crowd wants to hear.

We had our wedding in Durrow in Co. Loais. The band were effortless. Facilitated with any song request we had and our first dance song. They were reasonably priced too. The dance floor wasn't empty from the time they started until the very last song ended. They played for an extra hour and half too, a total of 3 hours. They also had a lot of people laughing as they interacted with them. To sum up they made our amazing day even better. Couldn't have asked for any more.
Response from Flog The Dog
Thank you, Karl. We were only thinking last week about the weddings we did in 2016 and the venue stood out to us as one of the best we've played. It was a pleasure for us to play at your wedding and we are glad you both enjoyed it too.

My wife and I spent countless hours searching for the right band to play our wedding. We were so lucky when we found Flog the Dog who played our wedding reception at The Killarney Heights on October 15th, 2015. The band went above and beyond in their preparation for the evening, learning requests of songs we had and even learning one so my wife could sing on stage with them for a song. Their sound was absolutely perfect for the evening and appealed to our guests who spanned several generations, which was very important to us as we wanted everyone to be able to feel included at the reception, and their music did just that. There were so many people that asked us that night who the band was and told us they were absolutely brilliant, which solidified our feelings that we chose the perfect band for our wedding. They are not just a great band, they are fantastic people as well and made us feel comfortable from the moment we spoke to them about playing our wedding. Flog the Dog comes with the highest recommendation from my wife and myself.
Response from Flog The Dog
Thank you Michael for the kinds words. There was a great atmosphere throughout the night. We were only too happy to be setup before hand to ensure the evening went without interruption. Thanks again for booking us for your Big Day.

Flog The Dog performed at our wedding reception on the 1st August and they were brilliant. Steve and the band were very friendly to deal with - polite and professional from the very first email. They are clearly talented musicians, covered a wide range of song styles and made the night extra special and fun! We’ve had so many positive comments from the guests and the dance floor was full all evening.
Response from Flog The Dog
Thank you, John and Richard. What can we was a spectacular wedding from start to finish. We felt such a warm welcome that lasted through the night. It's still being talked about in The Sandpit Bar and in Kanturk. A simply unforgettable night.

Forgive the long review....but we have a lot to say on this fabulous band :-) We were having a wedding of about 65 people and were very very concerned to have the music compliment this size of a group. I should say at this point that I play classical and trad music myself as a hobby and have played with bands in the past. Eamonn also adores his music so it was always going to be an absolutely crucial part of our day and there were high expectations from our guests because of this. We had gone around to a few wedding fairs and had been struck at how overpowering a lot of the bands were, with a large drum kit which pretty much drowned out any conversation, tried to mask poor vocals and musicianship and we just knew that was not for us as it would kill the relaxed mood and annoy everyone. In the back of our minds we wanted an acoustic band with a good mix of trad and current, where the musical talent would just shone through all on its own, but knew that we would have a search on our hands!! Then we saw an ad in the Brides of Limerick magazine that ticked all the boxes. We looked them up on youtube and liked what we heard. We went to see Flog the Dog at a pub in North Cork and were really impressed with how they sounded, how they interacted with the crowd, took requests and just generally had a good time with the crowd with a really good mix of trad, classic pop and even Uptown Funk made its way into the set list! We had a great chat with them after the session and even though they were the first band we had really seen, we booked them with a deposit straight away because we knew there was no point looking elsewhere. In the lead up to the wedding, Steve kept in touch with Eamonn going through set lists, taking a few requests up front for the first dance and father of the bride dance. They also had no problem setting up their 5 piece band early before the meal and had everything ready to go by the set dinner time. Consummate professionals. I was a bit of a control freak on other parts of the wedding I admit, but this was one area I never really worried about as I just knew that Steve and Paul were as invested in making this as great a night as we were. And what a night it was. There were dance offs, waltzing, sing alongs, requests and loads and loads of dancing....even Tommy K with all the dance moves made an appearance with my brother leading the dance moves interacting with Steve and co. The evidence of the fact that I didn't sit down all night was that my legs were crippled for the first few days of the honeymoon ......and I wasn't the only one either....plenty of other guests were in similar pain!! Even the non dancers said that they enjoyed the "private concert" they got and just sat back, chatted easily and enjoyed the music. The band kindly let me play a few tunes with them as well which made my parents' day. It was also the first time my new husband heard me play and it is one of his favourite memories from the night. I never noticed the time going. Unknown to us, the band kindly played on when they heard we weren't having a dj because they said they were having as much fun as we were so it was 1am before we knew it! If you want something different from the usual wedding bands with quality music which will appeal to trad and main stream music lovers alike and if you love acoustic guitar music sessions with a bit of cheerful banter thrown in then this is the band for you. I should also mention that our wedding venue was really impressed with the music (they do over 100 weddings a year) and asked where we found them so they could recommend to other wedding couples in Limerick, so boys I hope you get loads more bookings. I know we were only your 4th wedding ever, but you would never have known it and we feel very lucky that we had you with us for our day. Lots of great memories. Thank you so, so much, Karen & Eamonn.

I had never heard this band before my brothers wedding but was so taken with them afterwards I just had to look them up. They were absolutely fantastic, catered for all types of music tastes, engaged audience exceptionally well and produced a sound that was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. I know from comments I heard on the night that the younger folk thought they were fab and the older folk actually commented on how great the music was and how rare it was to be still able to actually engage in a conversation on the periphery of the show. This alone added so much to the wedding and both families enjoyment of it that I just couldn't recommend them highly enough for such an occasion. You definitely won't be disappointed!

Hi all, I recently got married and wanted to share my experience of Flog the dog. From start to finish they were absolutely fantastic. We went along to see them play at a few different locations around kerry and were impressed with their talent and fun filled attitude. On the night of the wedding they were true to their word and played an absolute blinder. From the first dance they had the dance floor packed out for the night playing a wide variety of songs including up to date music, golden oldies, tje likes of rock the boat, irish music and also songs like the siege of Venice! All of our guests are still talking about how good they are and of course this is exactly what you want. They really did make our day and the craic and banter they had with the guests was brilliant. I would have no problem 100% to recommend them to anyone out there looking for a fantastic band! Claire

We hired Flog the Dog for our Christmas wedding after seeing them 3-4 times around Kerry. We loved them every time we saw them as they played a fantastic mix of songs and always got the crowd going from the get-go. We were thrilled with the value for money we got from them and the constant contact from Steve who always replied to any of my queries which is great when planning a wedding. We couldn't recommend this band highly enough.
