If you are considering booking Harlequin for your wedding then just do it. It will be the best decision you make for your wedding. Guests are still talking about how amazing they are. We felt like we knew Shane all our lives. He was so easy to talk to and he is honestly such an amazing singer and the lads are so professional. It was the best night ever
Review by
I cannot recommend Harlequin enough! People we meet are still raving about them and how they cant believe how packed the dancefloor was all night. Yes you will pay that bit more for them but you cant put a price on quality. Scrimp elsewhere if you need to and invest in these guys! Shane is an unbelievable entertainer, he is si clued in when something is working for the crowd and he changes it up. I found these guys 10 years ago at a family wedding, they've played another family wedding since then and I'm the third but I can guarantee it wont be the last we'll see of them as my brother is already eyeing them up!
Review by
We are so delighted that we choose Harlequin for our Wedding Day. They were extremely professional & made us feel at ease instantly upon going to see them at their showcase! Shane and the band were extremely flexible and were happy to play literally anything we wanted. A number of guests on the day even enquired for their own day which is always a very good recommendation! Thanks to Shane & the band for unbelievable music, craic and entertainment & for rocking us into the wee hours of the morning! Rachel & David McDonagh.
Review by
Shane was absolutely amazing. Everyone was saying that they were the best wedding band they have ever heard. He kept the dance floor full for the whole night and the interaction between him and the crowd was great. 100% recommend him and Harlequin to any couple getting married.
Review by
Harlequin Band were the after ceremony band at the weddingsonline awards 2018 and all I can say is...WOW!!! They had the floor hopping!!! What an amazing end to our celebrations!! Thanks to Shane and all the guys!
Review by
Have seen Harlequin play at weddings twice now, with the most recent being this month. Shane is an excellent singer and performer and the band knew how to get the crowd going. They played all of the right music and had my brother (who you would rarely see dancing) on the dance floor!! Luckily they are available for our wedding date this year and we cannot wait for them to be apart of it!!
Review by
Can’t say enough positive things about Harlequin. The music and entertainment were outstanding all night, had the dance floor filled from start to finish, with an incredible show. The energy levels of the entire band, and especially the lead singer Shane, were unreal - well worth every penny. Highly recommend them!
Review by
Harlequin is the absolute BEST. I've been to a wedding where they played and that's why I booked them for our wedding - the dancefloor is never empty and they somehow find the best mix of music to keep everyone moving & energized throughout the night. All our guests RAVED about them! Book them!
Review by
Cannot recommend Shane and the band enough. Amazing band. They had the dance floor full all night. It's a mighty show these guys put on. Well worth it. I don't think there is better out there.
Review by
Harlequin were amazing from start to finish. From the weeks leading up to the wedding they were very professional and got to know exactly what we were looking for. Then on the night they had the dance floor full and rocking for the night. It was a great atmosphere and as good as we could ever have imagined. Shane even played on a bit later because everyone was enjoying the night so much. Really genuine quality wedding band
Review by
Harlequin delivered entertainment throughout our wedding day that exceeded expectations. I received so many compliments on the day, and even now months later on how brilliant they were and how much our guests enjoyed them. Highly, highly recommended!
Review by
Harlequin were absolutely amazing at our wedding. Booking Shane and the lads was the best decision we made and best money we spent for the entire wedding. They were amazing entertainment from start to finish, the dance floor was never empty and our guests all commented on how brilliant they were. Shane is an excellent show man, who was so entertaining, energetic and really got the party started and kept it going! We would love to get married all over again just to have an excuse to book Harlequin.
Review by
Harlequin were absolutely fantastic. From start to finish, they had everyone up on the dance floor and catered for all! My guests are still talking about how amazing they were three months on. Would highly recommend them to anyone. Shane is hugely talented and can turn his hand to any song. Can't thank them enough for making our wedding so special. Book them now....you won't regret it!
Review by
Harlequins played at our wedding Iin September and they were absolutely amazing! The dance floor was packed all night. Every conversation about the wedding included ‘the band were excellent, who were they?’. I would recommend them to everyone.
Review by
Harlequin played at our wedding on the 26th August 17 and there aren't enough words in my vocabulary to describe how amazing they were. True professionals from the start to finish and worth every cent. Everything was pure class, the staging, the lighting, the musicians. The front man Shane is gifted at what he does. He knows exactly how to interact with a crowd and get everyone on the dancefloor. Our dancefloor was packed the whole night and everyone raved about the band to us. If you are considering hiring Harlequin for an event you will not be disappointed. Thanks again guys xx
Review by
Fantastic band in every way. Shane and the lads were very professional to deal with from start to finish. Kept the dance floor full all night. Could not recommend them enough. 100% value for money
Review by
My husband and I must have attended about 6 wedding band showcases and harlequin were by far the BEST band we had seen. They really get involved with the audience they are preforming to. We instantly became friends with the singer Shane, he is so funny and fantastic at his job. He gets to know you as a couple and your expectations on the night. At our wedding, the dance floor was never empty. They entertained every type of person at our wedding which was amazing! Harlequin are still something my friends and family talk about when we look back on the wedding, everyone just loved them. So if you are a future bride/groom I have no doubt in my mind you will not regret choosing them as your wedding band!! Wishing you all the best sally & Gavin
Review by
Fabulous band. Did not stop all night and the dance floor was never empty. I would truly recommend this band they are amazing
Review by
Great band really made our day the best and got everyone to dance
Review by
Couldn't have asked for better service or a better night. Spent the whole night on the dance floor with my new husband and our friends and loved ones. They learnt new songs especially for us. The craic was mighty! Money well spent!
Review by
They were very professional, great and talented musicians. Don't make my mistake and give them free rein to choose the music they perform.For the second half of their set at my wedding, I was like JESUS F**KING CHRIST WILL YOU JUST PERFORM A SONG THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY RECOGNIZE!! it was disappointing but my own fault for not sitting down with them and dictating to them what type/kind of music to play. I had the lead singer and a few others of the band doing a post wedding sing song where we could tell them what to play so that was fine. The point to take away from this is that they are excellent, but they need direction.
Review by
Would highly recommend Harlequin as your wedding band, right from the start and leading up to our big day Shane and his team were extremely professional, helpful and were always there to listen to us with our many requests and feedback. They truly did not break their promise to us in saying that the dance floor would be full all night - they did not disappoint on any level and are definitely value for money.
Review by
Shane and company were nothing short of superb in all areas. He brought the craic and made the day. Our first dance video went viral on YouTube !!!
Review by
Aw what can I say, an absolutely fantastic performance, Shane and the lads are born entertainers. 1st dance was John Legend All of Me and it was perfect. From the word go it was brilliant, great interaction and banter with the guests throughout. Had the dance floor full all night except for a bit of Metallica and Pearl Jam just for me :). Everybody there loved the band and were talking about it for weeks. On the higher end of the scale for price but worth every penny. Go on people book Harlequin for your big day, I promise you won’t regret it
Review by
I could not recommend this band enough, they had the dance floor full all night and Shane and the guys put on a great show.
Review by
Harlequin was the best band we ever heard and we enjoyed every minute of our wedding. They kept the dance floor full from beginning to end and we could not have picked anything better than Harlequin for our wedding. Amazing!
Review by
An amazing band! They made our night. The dance floor was full from the first dance to the last. The best money you will spend! No ordinary band can compare. So many guests told us they were the best wedding band they had ever seen!
Review by
Amazing band, people are still talking about them a year later! We knew from the moment we first heard them we wanted them, so much so that when they were not available on our wedding date we changed our date & everything else!! So helpful and professional but so entertaining on the night! Cannot recommend them enough!! The crowd never left the dance floor!!
Review by
From the first contact to this band, until the last song played at our wedding, Harlequin showed nothing but professionalism and high octane entertainment. Dealing with Shane ( Lead Singer ) is an experience that makes you understand that they are there for you. Wanting to know all the details of your day, what songs you want played ( No set playlists to select from ) and most importantly, wanting to know about you!.. On the night, from the first song to the last, our guests didn't leave the dance floor. The full on entertainment until 1am brought the house down. But it didn't stop there... As the staff for the band started to pack down the equipment, Shane and one of the guitarists moved to a corner of the room and in true Pied Piper fashion everyone followed. The singalong had just started.. As 4am was approaching the shutter of the bar start coming down Shane started to slow it down. As the shutter closed, the last string on the guitar was struck and our guests stood up with a standing ovation to applaud the wonderful entertainment that Harlequin had provided for the last 6 hours in total. They are not just a "Wedding Band"... They are more of a concert experience that keeps you captivated all night long with the amazing musicians ( including brass! ), vocals, entertainment. When you want top end for your most important day of your life... Its here ---> Harlequin
Review by
I can not fault these lads! Shane and the gang made our wedding the best craic we could have wanted and the made sure the music reflected our Irish Australian union playing all the Aussie wedding classics! I want to have a 5 year anniversary wedding just so I can have a mad session with these lads!!!!!!
Review by
Absolutely brilliant, these guys know how to get a party started. Very, very impressed with Shane and the team. The musicians were excellent, they played every request, made it fun for all ages. All generations thought they were great.
Review by
Can't recommend these guys enough. Their approach is just mega. We knew our night would be great but we just really didn't expect what transpired. Shane is a force of passion for the band and he had every single person dancing - even guys who I have never seen on a dance floor ever. My wife was dancing on a chair at the side of the dance-floor for the very last part overlooking her wedding. I really loved it and when I told her it was my favorite part of the night she told me she literally couldn't stand anywhere else - she was using the cushion of the chair to assist her sore feet. They were sore for a week. Best night ever. Go and see them.

Harlequin played our wedding in November 2016 and we can honestly say that they made our wedding day. From the start, Shane was so professional and hands on. He was always on the other end of the phone no matter how small our query and was great with ideas and advice to really make sure we got the most out of the day. We felt like we were in such safe hands throughout. From the moment they started we knew we were in for a fun, entertaining night. For our first dance the band did Tiny Dancer and Harlequin’s version is now our new favourite version! They really got the party going after that and the dance floor was packed all night. Shane’s voice was absolutely incredible and all the band members had such energy. We also loved the videos Shane took of our guests enjoying themselves on the dance floor as they performed - it’s great to have something like that to look back at. We also had Shane as DJ after the band and he made sure to keep the party going into the early hours. We have never seen a wedding band like Harlequin and we have such fantastic memories of the night. Our guests are still raving about Harlequin. Willie and I would highly recommend Harlequin to any couple looking for a wedding band. Harlequin is the best band out there and you will truly have a night that you and your guests will never forget. Thanks again to Harlequin and Shane for such a great night.
Review by
The Harlequins Band really made our wedding day - the dance floor was full for the night. Any requests from family and friends was met. The band really interacted with the crowd. Everyone was talking about them after the wedding - we had an absolute ball and would definitely have them again. Shane and the band were easy to contact from the moment we enquired about them and then throughout our planning to the wedding day. Thank you so much for making our day - don't think we have ever danced as much x Helena & Cormac
Review by
Can't recommend these enough, accommodated all our needs, really got the dance floor full and involved everyone. Were great craic, gave us great advice in the lead up-so approachable and experienced, and really made us feel special and comfortable with them on the night. AMAZING talent had everyone dancing their socks off!
Review by
We had the pleasure of having Harlequin play our wedding on Friday September 30th 2016 in Dingle, Co. Kerry and I have to say they were absolutely fantastic!!! Shane and his crew met every request with ease. Being a huge fan of U2 and hearing With or Without You come one was one of the highlights of the evening and not only that Shane's DJ skills late in the evening added to it particularly when Thriller came on! All in all I could not recommend them enough, the professionalism from start to finish is something that makes them stand out from the rest!
Review by
Harlequin Wedding Band. what can i say..... They are everything you want in a band for your wedding. They're a great band with skilled musicians. The equipment used for sound, lighting and production of are a very high quality, this of course enhances the experience, In communicating with with band through their representatives, Shane and evening during the event they listened to every detail and add it to your night, to make it even more special. We had a great day at our wedding everything was fantastic then Harlequin came on and just pushed it over the top, All our guests loved them, we loved them. They played our first dance I have to say it was better than the original, then the second song got the crowd moving, I can still here the horns in my ears, the sound quality was so good. I really can't say praise them enough. Make sure and book the lead man to Shane to DJ too and keep the night going. My wife and I look forward to a showcase night so we can see them again. such a fantastic addition to our wedding, A great band, a great night, one we will never forget.
Review by
The best band ever. Made our night unbelievable, everyone there only had good things to say. Thank you so much
Review by
What can I say but Harlequin were amazing!! They truly deserve "The band of the year" title. They kept the dance floor full all night and were loved by all ages. Great music and great interaction with us and our guests. Thanks again, we would highly recommend you to everyone thinking of booking you guys :)
Review by
There is no two ways about it. Like everyone who books a wedding band we were nervous about how they would turn out! In fairness it didn't start the best as they changed the playlist when they saw the crowd but they were right to as Martinas grandmother isnt a Mod and my mother doesnt mosh! Harlequin are about crowd participation and the dance floor was bet out of it, even if it was to Dickie Rock covers. Shane and the lads literally got everyone involved, including getting my uncle tommy on drums for the first time in 40 years! A band makes a wedding and were in not doubt from feedback that Harlequin were a big factor in ours. Thanks lads
Review by
The first time we experienced Harlequin was at a friend’s wedding a few years ago - that night we decided when we got married that they would have to be our wedding band – they are incredible! We wanted Harlequin so much that when we got engaged in June 2015 the first thing we did was call Shane to see what dates they had free in June 2016! – Yes we set our wedding date according to their schedule, and we are so glad we did. It was my parents 40th wedding anniversary on June 18th so we thought that’d be a nice day to get married – we got married on June 11th because Harlequin were free! Shane and the entire crew are amazing – they honestly treat your wedding as the most important night of their lives, give you tips and a mini brief on how to get the best out of your night and will fill the dance floor all night long! Their set up is incredible – the most professional band and team you could meet! Thank you so much guys for the best night of our lives – will never forget it - My feet are still recovering! Nothing I can say on here will tell you how much everyone enjoyed the night and how many people have been talking about Harlequin since our wedding!
Review by
Harlequinn - the most fantastic entertainment we ever could have hoped for at our wedding!!! Fell in love with this band at a showcase in The Dandelion - St Stephens Green Dublin, Shane and the gang made everything so personal from our first point of contact! Our wedding reception was amazing - our dancefloor was full from start to finish and every guest commented on how great the band was!! Thanks for making it the best party ever!! Can't wait to come see you guys again!! Aoibheann & James xx

Elaine and I had Harlequin as our wedding back in March this year and to be honest they were a key factor in our guests having such a great time. Harlequin was recommended to us by a friend and from our initial enquiry with Shane, we knew we were making the right decision. Shane took us through every step of the day and was in regular contact with us with ideas on the songs we liked, the church music and the choice for our first dance. It was a really fun part of the process for us and meant we could relax in the knowledge that the music was going to be perfect on the day. The fact that Harlequin could cater for every musical aspect of our wedding was a huge plus. We just had one point of contact and everything from the church to the pre-reception right through to the band performance; dj and singsong were taken care of. The church music was fantastic and Shane’s voice and the acoustics in the church were first class. The music for the pre-reception in Dromoland really helped to get the guests relaxed and ready for the night ahead. We had piano music for the dinner and again it was the perfect fit for the venue and our wedding. After the dinner and speeches, Shane really got the party going. Everything from the intro for our first dance was superb. The music throughout was excellent and exactly what we expected. The band’s interaction with our guests throughout the night was fantastic. The common thread from all our guests after the wedding was Harlequin and how they really enjoyed the night. Elaine and I could not recommend Harlequin strongly enough to couple looking for a band for their wedding. Thanks again for making it such a great night for our guests and us. Elaine and Raffaele.
Review by
Shane and the guys are true professionals. I could not recommend them enough or more highly. From start to finish we were thrilled with them. We went to see the guys in dandelion before booking, we loved their energy and song repertoire. We booked them there and then. They put our minds completely at ease with the planning in the build up of the day and it was one aspect of the day I didn't worry about. On the day itself, all our guests were on the dancefloor for the night, in fact we (Hubbie and me) never left the dancefloor either. We are a year married and the first thing any guest reminisces is how good harlequin were. X
Review by
Hi all, Well as a recent bride I just wanted to let everyone know about the wonderful band we had our wedding back in October. When I got engaged first I spent a lot of time researching bands as music was (after the dress of course) the most important thing to get right in our eyes. We went to see a lot of different bands but one band was just so impressive when we went to see them in a showcase gig in Dublin. They were of course..HARLEQUIN.. The minute we booked them I never had one moment of doubt that they would be great. Rebecca and Shane were really on the ball and emails were replied to so quickly. Now the wedding is over (sob sob) We look back and there is no doubt that Harlequin made our wedding day. Our guests still tell us how impressed they were with the band. The dance floor was never empty and Shane just nailed the type of music the crowd wanted … it was deadly. So to anyone planning their big day..firstly enjoy every minute because it’s such a wonderful time and secondly book HARLEQUIN .. you will not regret it. Other People that made our day so great and are really worth a mention Photography: Tara Aherne – so lovely, so talented. Videographer: Edit House – Amazing Make-up:Kate Rose Crean – there is no better.. funny, relaxed, fabulous Hair: Sinead Mcgoldrick – Magic – can do anything with hair, so easy to work with.
Response from Harlequin - Ireland's Most Exclusive Wedding Band
Thanks a million for your kind words EK. I know well who you are and I remember the guys had a fantastic time that night in the Ferrycarrig! We really do appreciate that it takes time to write up a review, so it's very much appreciated. We wish you the best of luck in the future and please please stay in touch!
Review by
What a super band we had for our wedding, highly recommend them, the floor was full for the night, they really make sure to get all the guests involved, Shane is super friendly and great craic, we hit it off with him from day 1 and a year on he is still in touch, he will never let you down and Harlequin made our night the best ever!!!
Review by
Harlequin in a word – sensational. My wife and I chose Harlequin for our wedding on 16th October 2015 and they were truly fantastic. People are still commenting about them a month on. Shane, the lead singer's energy is something that needs to be seen to be believed. The whole group gel very well together and sound fantastic. Organising a wedding from overseas is a challenge, but what was so impressive about Harlequin was the personalisation we got from the lead singer, Shane. He would take our calls directly, despite a hectic schedule, to discuss the playlist, our first dance and any other issues we had. As an Aussie/Irish wedding we wanted certain songs played and Shane and boys welcomed our extensive list of song requests. There was something for everyone! On the day the jazz trio played at our drinks reception as well as for the main evening entertainment. Harlequin didn't want to stop and played way beyond the call of duty. Shane was hilarious and played to his crowd. The dance floor was never empty! We could not recommend them highly enough, and they are worth every cent. No surprises that they’ve won countless awards – every bit deserved. Shane and Harlequin Band, all the best for the future. Andrew and Sarah.
Review by
I planned the wedding from the US, and hired these guys after looking at their YouTube videos. They exceeded expectations in every way! A year later and my guests still talk about the band as the highlight of the wedding. They had the guests in tears with the beautiful music during the ceremony, and rocking all night during the reception! I could not recommend these guys enough!
Review by
What can we say that hasn't already been said about this great band... Yes they are more expensive than others out there but you definitely get what you pay for! We had the Jazz trio for the drinks reception and due to it being a beautiful day they were able to play outside and it was absolutely fabulous. The entrance for our first dance with the evening reception band was out of this world and the dance floor looked like a nightclub it was so busy with music to suit everyone's tastes. Shane is a total showman and the whole band are so professional, they really pulled out all the stops. Our guests are still talking about them and we were thrilled they travelled down to Cork for us... The work that is put in beforehand is incredible, they really want to perform to suit the couple and their guests, its so personalised its fantastic. Thank you so much again Harlequin, we can't recommend them highly enough and only wished we could have another wedding so we could hire them again!! Tricia & Dave, Crosshaven
Review by
We had Harlequin as our wedding band and DJ. Thanks so much to Shane and the lads for being a part of our big day and helping make it such a memorable one. From start to finish the dance floor was full. We had such a great night and all the guests did too. We are still getting comments on how good you all were. Shane I cant thank you enough for everything. You are a true gentleman. The range of music you played was amazing and any request that was made the band were able to play. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone as a wedding band. Best wishes to you and all the lads. Many many thanks again, Lorraine and Colin
Review by
A big thank you to Shane & the lads for making our wedding a night to remember! Without even seeing Harlequin play live, we booked them knowing they were the band for us & they didn't disappoint - they were truly amazing! My husband & I along with our guests didn't leave the dance floor for the night! Shane is a true gentleman & a pleasure to deal with - he made the planning & organising very easy for us! Thanks again lads!

Review by
Please don't take any chances when booking a band for your wedding. Choose Harlequin!! They are absolutely amazing in absolutely every way. If your guests don't love Harlequin's performance then there's something wrong with your guests!! Everyone at our wedding loved them and so did we! If you book them for your wedding..wear comfy dancing shoes because you won't be sitting down for two minutes once they get started! Cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks so much for an amazing night!
Review by
What can we say.... What a band! Shane and the rest of Harlequin were ABSOLUTELY out of this world at our wedding on the 31st of July 2015. I think they definitely shook the foundations of Cabra Castle!! An amazing man with an amazing personal touch and an unbelievable entertainer. A true gentleman! We had seen Harlequin at a wedding in Dec 2013 and we booked straight away as they were unreal that night however they still exceeded all exceptions at our wedding! To say the dancefloor was full would be an understatement from start to finish! If there were more stars to give in this review we would, we cannot recommend Harlequin enough as a wedding band! Thank you so much for making our wedding day one we will never forget and one that our guests cannot stop talking about.
Review by
Harlequin's high energy performance was one of the highlights of our wedding! Shane is a one of a kind performer and he kept everyone dancing until the small hours. He personally connected not only with us, but surprisingly with a large number of our wedding guests - he was on a first name basis with half of them by the end of the night! Even though we did not provide a set list, he was able to get a feel for the crowd and keep the dance floor filled with guests of all ages. If you didn't know you were at a wedding, you could have sworn you were at a rock concert!
Review by
Thank you so much Shane and guys for doing an amazing job at our wedding in Luttrellstown Castle. We were blown away with your performance. No other wedding band we have ever heard would even come close to the performance you put on. You were worth every penny and more! We planned our wedding from the USA and the level of support which Shane and the management team gave us was amazing. Very quick response times and always the highest levels of professionalism. All our guests had very sore feet the next day from being on the dance floor all night; but everyone was in full agreement that you guys were the best wedding band they have ever heard. You made the night truly magical for us and one we will never forget. Tracy and Declan
Review by
The band were fantastic, we had such a brilliant night. The floor was never empty and Shane definitely knew how to keep it moving and the celebrations going. He was very responsive to our requests, especially our request to prevent a wedding circle forming! We had such an amazing night . The party kept going long after the lights were back on. Two comments we wanted to include from a lot of our guests in the days following the wedding were ''I've never danced as much at a wedding before'' and ''what's the contact number for the band''. Their slogan is true (night of your life) and they are true professionals. We were delighted with our choice.

We booked Harlequin having seen them at another wedding and attended one of their "Open Nights" in Dandelion. Booking them was easily among the best decisions we made for the wedding, the show they put on was electric with the dance-floor heaving until after 2am and people doing their best to prevent the guys from finishing (we got Shane to DJ aswell which I highly recommend). At one point I was sitting at the back of the room and just watched the dance-floor - it was insane, like something out of a film....almost every guest was up thrashing like a lunatic, including a bunch of folk who NEVER dance! A lot of hard work goes into this. Shane contacts you regularly prior to the event to get a feel for the type of people who'll be attending, requests that you fill in a questionnaire so they can personalise things as much as possible as well as making a huge effort to interact with all guests. He also goes through music choices, advising on what are "floor-killers" and so on. I lost a few songs I really liked this way, but Shane was correct and I recommend heeding him! All the guys are extremely personable, so engaging with them is actually great fun and makes getting the band organised fun rather than a chore. As regards setup, they played in the permanent marquee in Castle Leslie. Stage looked great, band sounded great and they couldn't have been more professional and low-maintenance, that they just wanted everyone to have a great time came across very clearly - the Castle Leslie staff told us they are the easiest band to work with that they've encountered. One final note - these guys are proper musicians. They execute the songs you know and love flawlessly and Shane has an amazing voice. As you might be able to tell, I couldn't be more positive on Harlequin and am delighted to recommend them unreservedly - they made a big contribution to a magic weekend
Response from Harlequin - Ireland's Most Exclusive Wedding Band
Cheers Ross. Your a top man. A joy to play for you guys and your guests. Pop by to see us again at one of our public shows!

We were lucky enough to book Harlequin as our wedding band. To say that Shane and the band were absolutely fanstastic is an understatement, they had the dancefloor full from start to finish and so many of our guests told us they were the best wedding band they'd ever heard. Shane also did DJ for us well into the wee hours, he was extremely accomodating in regards to some of our questionable song requests and I don't think any of our guests will forget my husband and his 'Michael Flatley' impression for a long time to come. Thanks so much to Harlequin for making it a night we'll never forget.

We had an amazing evening thanks to Harlequine! What a band!!! Wow!! Great songs and music, great interaction with us and our guests. This is not an ordinary band, they will entertain and make your special day sooo FAB! We loved it and our guests still talks about the band! We had Shane doing the DJ afterwards - it was brilliant as well!! As a wedding coupe we danced for 4 solid hours!

Thanks to Shane and the rest of the guys for making our wedding a night we will never forget. The band was amazing, the music selection was fantastic and had everyone on the dance floor all night long. And we had great fun even playing with the band smile emoticon We really could not of asked for a better day xxx

Having a good band for our wedding was an absolute priority and my husband and I did heaps of research and went to see countless bands perform. We were totally blown away by Harlequin from the start and booked them the same day we attended their showcase. Right from our first contact they were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Shane takes the time to find out about you and your guests and really tailors the entertainment accordingly. You truly get a very personal service and it makes a big difference on the night. This band are really passionate about what they do and it comes through in their performance. We and Our guests were totally enchanted! My husband and I could not recommend them highly enough. They are truly worthy of their 'best wedding band' title.

Harlequin will make it a night to remember. They fill the dance floor from start to finish and do everything they can to accommodate your needs. Everyone at the wedding loved them. Money well spent!!

Thank you so much Harlequin for an out of this world night. We were absolutely bowled over by the show you put on for us for our wedding. From beginning to end the night was just perfect and we couldn't have had a better band. The music, song choices everything was exactly as we wanted and Shane is a brilliant singer and went above and beyond on the night. I've never seen a dancefloor so full at a wedding and we were delighted to see everyone enjoying themselves, not just the younger crowd but the aunties, uncles and granny's too! Thanks again, we would highly recommend you and are already urging any family or friends to book you for their weddings so we can see you again!

What a devil you are? Thanks so much for everything at our wedding in Knightbrook. You are some man for one man - I knew we'd have fun but I didn't think it would be the bash of the century. When you started playing Sex on Fire as a waltz I nearly cracked up. And as for the drum-off - Harry will never live it down. Also thanks for letting Oscar play with the band. He is the envy of all his cousins now. Cannot wait until we get another Harlequin Fix. I'll put a compliment of your Facebook page too. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate your efforts at getting things right for us. See you at a Harlequin gig nsoon.

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding on the 11th. We had an absolutely fab night. I have some great video of you which I will forward Shane. I was so mortified when you brought me up to sing. I haven't sang in ten years at least. Thank you for that. Brendan's mum sends her love too.

The night of your life or your money back. Lol. You won't be hearing from us in that regard. Thanks for everything you did for us. Everything was so professional.

Just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful entertainment you provided at Gemma and Ian's wedding on the 23rd. We all had a lovely night Shane and you really delivered everything you said you would. Can I thank you also for learning John Lennon for me. Dave hadn't heard it since our own wedding. So very happy with everything you provided. Please let me know if we can give you a testimonial somewhere.

Shaney, Hope all is well with you and your enjoying your time off no matter where you are? Ailbhe and I are back from our honeymoon – Mauritius is amazing! We just wanted to drop you a quick mail to say thanks for helping to make our day so special. Despite your injury and concussion you and the band played a stormer! We want to really compliment you and the lady singer (I cant remember her name) and of course my old teacher Aidan for a great job in the church. People are still talking about that version of The Prayer you both sang. Absolutely brilliant. You should record it together! The effort you made with Ailbhe and I to make us feel the centre of attention all night was brilliant and really appreciated. You kept the dancefloor jumping all night and thats really all we could have hoped for. All our friends and family thought the music was brilliant and the band really got into it. Even when you changed over from band to DJ the dancefloor stayed full – great stuff. So thanks again to you and the band and best of luck for 2011.

Firstly I have to apologise as I am sooo embarrased that it has taken me nearly 3 months to write a huge and very long overdue thank you for making our wedding the BEST WEDDING EVER!!! I knew Harlequin were good when I booked you guys but in all honesty I had absolutely no idea how good. I have been to lots of weddings over the last few years and Harlequin really stand out as a far superior and professional band, you are just in a completely different league. The way Shane introduced us into the room and onto the dancefloor was fantastic, it was like a fanfair !!!! And you really kept that momento going all night with all the little bride and groom songs and of course a little bit of ACDC for the boys and everything else in between !!! You really were far beyond what we ever expected – and Shane yes you are a lunatic – but a great one – you were just BRILLIANT. I know at one stage I asked what time it was cause I didn’t think I could physically dance anymore and it as only 12.45!!! I was nervous in the lead up to our wedding as we have relatively small numbers and the wedding was on a Monday but I really honestly believe that because of you guys this just wasn’t an issue – one of the best moments was about quarter to two when I looked down at the room and EVERY SINGLE person in the room was on the dancefloor, and I mean literally not one person was at the bar or in their seat. That is when I said to myself – We’ve nailed it – best wedding ever…and ALL THANKS to Harlequin. My Dad’s friend said he’s never seen anything like the dancing in his ENTIRE life!!! If I was to give advice to anyone organising their wedding – pay the money for a really good band and forego something else. The band ‘HARLEQUIN’ really do make your whole day, what people remember afterwards is how much fun they had at night !! Our guests are still talking about how great our wedding was and it is all down to you guys for sure. I know one of our bridesmaids was on looking to book you for here own wedding so the recommendation really speaks for itself !!!! A big THANK you once again and apologies that it has taken me so long – I’m a bit of a disaster at stuff like that !!!

I just wanted to thank you and the band for doing the most amazing job at our wedding. We had the best night of our lives and you guys really rocked the place. We were over the moon with the band...we knew you were good but on the night you were phenomenal! We are just back from the honeymoon and I had to take the time to thank you guys for making our wedding so so enjoyable... it made our night and our guests have commented that they thought you guys were excellent. Thanks so much again

Myself and Rachel would like to thank you guys for the best night ever at our wedding. You made our night, any off our guests that we have seen since our honeymoon have said how you guys finished off the perfect day. Hopefully we will get to see u in around the city some night at a gig. wishing you continued succes for the future.

We wanted to say a massive THANKS for playing a great gig at our wedding on 17th. it was just amazing. So happy we met you guys. Special thanks to Michael for his wonderful saxophone rendition of Careless Whisper. I nearly fell into tears listening to it. Everyone is commenting on ye guys. Happy New year.

How’s it going buddy? Louise and I are back in the land of the living after a mad 3-4 weeks. We had a great Honeymoon in Italy and the views and hotels were literally 5 star. I have nominated you for WEDDING ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR. I would like to say a few words to both yourself and Shane now I’m back to speed with work. Personally, i’ve been to many weddings over the last 10 years and not being biased ours was streets ahead of any of them. Yes the weather held out, food was excellent, reception venue (The Glenview) has great views and the church was a fantastic setting. But the ambience of the day and the energy was superb and this is down to you guys throughout the day. Your ceremony vocalist and string-quartet was awesome and many people have said so without being asked to. I would strongly recommend any bride or groom to take this up. Shane, your guitar duo for our drinks reception was really special and there were some really appropriate tunes at that time of the day. When the band came on for the next 3 hrs there was never a space free on that floor. Music was just right and appropriate for all ages. Letting people sing (inc. my most accomplished version of American Pie), and PJ sing to everyone and Gary play the harmonica added to it. Our first dance was really special and Shane built up the crowd and we cant wait to see the video as this was included in our package. I actually think Shane at times thought he was part of our family and was disappointed for having to finish. I think he went way over schedule and we are very grateful. So many people the next morning and since have commented upon your band. I am very happy to send you some pictures once we finalise them, copy of a video and / or make any comments on your website / anything you may think you want from us? It was a great occasion and it would be good to catch up when we are over in the future to just say hi and maybe listen to you again. Keep up those Irish smiles going for the World Cup Guys. See you back in Ireland soon for a cuppa or maybe a Guinness!!!

Harlequin played at my wedding on New Years Eve 2011 & they rocked the house. I have to say that they really made my wedding so special and memorable. People are still talking about the band & will do for years I've not doubt. Shane really knows how to get the crowd going and their won't be a moment when the dance floor isn't packed with people. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. X

Guys, thanks for an amazing night in Doonbeg last Saturday. And a special thanks to you Shane. i know what a terribly difficult night it must have been for you having to on stage after hearing of the loss of your treasured Granny. Wasn't it so poignant that we had a ceili band too (knowing your granny was a famous ceili musician). Anyway, I have to compliment you all for a stellar job. I can't imagine a better night ever. My sisters and the bridemaids are all in total awe too having had the night of their lives too. Please stay in touch Shane and no doubt we'll see you at the wedding of one of our guests soon.
Review by
This is long overdue but I’d like to drop you this short note to say thanks a million for a great night on the 13th of August, you really helped to make the day for us. I’ve always been a firm believer that you need two things to make a great wedding; 1. the meal & 2. the band, well the hotel looked after the former and Harlequin absolutely stole the show thereafter. After hearing you guys perform at the wedding fair in Moyvalley Hotel there was only one band for us, from the seven song playlist we heard including “You can call me Al” (to which I was sold on by the way), every song was performed to perfection and really illustrated the guys talents and extensive repertoire. From the time of booking the professionalism was excellent with swift responses to e-mails and any other of our queries. Even our pre-dance meeting with Shane was great and really put us at ease, needless to say we had a fantastic night and the floor was packed and a great time was had by all. Our wedding is still talked about and everyone has complimented our choice of entertainment on the night. The guys (especially Shane) really made us feel special on the day and we found the whole performance very personal and enjoyable. We have had absolutely no problem in recommending Harlequin to all and sundry thinking of getting married – you guys are the real deal. Many thanks again and I will be echoing these sentiments on the weddings online website

Hi You Guys, Just some short lines to thank you for a wonderful day of entertainment at our wedding. What can I say? Harlequin were awesome. Four set ups without a hitch. First for my arrival, then for the service, then for the bar and then for the post dinner dancing. Everyone has raved about you. The floor was never empty and at times was even too crowded. Three generations were able to dance and enjoy your music to absolute delight. I have been raving about Harlequin at every opportunity. If you have a wedding client who wants to hear an experience from the horses mouth I would be happy for you to give them my mobile (xxx xxxxxxx) to provide a reference.

Thank you so so much for playing at our wedding. You and the guys were just brilliant. Absolutely made our evening! The amount of people asking about you’s the next day was unreal. You really impressed both us and our guests. The compliments were flying. You absolutely played your hearts out. We honestly had the best day of our lives. The ceremony music and the jazz recital at our drinks reception was all terrific! And the floor was full all night too – who knew they’d all dance for so long? Roisin and I loved everything you provided. We are so delighted we chose Harlequin as our wedding entertainment. Thank you so much. We really mean that. A very good friend of mine Eimear, will be contacting you soon. She just got engaged and is looking into bands. I gave your details to her. She loved Harlequin at our wedding. She’ll surely book also. Best of luck and thanks again for really helping to make our day one to remember. You certainly did that. Well done Harlequin. Worth every cent! If word of mouth means anything, you’ll be flying!

Hi guys, we meant to message you sooner but just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing job you all did on September 1st. Just watching the DVD of the wedding tonight and can really see how packed the dance floor was! We had a ball, would love to do it all over again, and so many people have asked for your name and said it was best wedding band they'd ever seen - we wholeheartedly agree!! Huge shout out too to DJ PJ too ;-)

Massive Thank you to Harlequin for being absolutely amazing at Ciara and Brian’s wedding. I had an absolute ball and so did my family and Ciara and Brian’s friends.....I mean this so sincerely. You were the best band I’ve ever heard...The DJ couldn’t understand why no one was dancing..I explained we were completely danced out of it as every song you sang was fantastic...Great vibe, atmosphere and attitude from you guys..you’re a class act....Just a pic for you..... PS thanks to the drummer for letting my play the bongos and symbals! He he

Harlequin are excellent I’ve seen them twice at this stage and due a third visit next week! Can’t get enough. For me it was all about feeling confident that I am getting a professional service and even the smallest things such as email were spot on and the fact that you didn’t have to go to somebody’s wedding to hear them. I would have absolutely hated that! The music is super and completely live I travelled nearly 2hrs and was so glad I made the journey!! Definitely go and see the guys you won’t be disappointed!

What can we say, WOW!!! Thank you soo much for the fantastic music at our wedding the crowd was tough and you got them all going!!! Fair Play! We were truly delighted with Harlequin but 3 hours wasn’t enough!! Any chance you can get a local gig in Drogheda!! Everyone was raving about the music and Harlequin was the perfect ending to the perfect day!!! Shane, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts you are absolutely talented and gifted at what you do and a true people’s person. You did catch the crowd out on a number of occasions with your mock version of New York New York…. LOVE IT!!! Our guests couldn’t believe how personal you were with myself and Paul and thought that we were childhood friends!!! Like we’d hang around with your sort!!! LOL!! No seriously thank you for the amazing service from Start to Finish!! You defo pay for what you get! Send our regards to the rest of the lads too. We wish you and the lads every success in the future and keep doing what you’re doing puttin’ smiles on peoples faces with fantastic music, it is the food for the soul after all! Keep in touch, your Harlequin groupies,

The music was without doubt the highlight of our wedding day Shane. Thanks so much for everything. You were truly outstanding and everyone has been singing your praises. From the ceremony to the last note I genuinely, not that I would, couldn’t find a fault – and you know by now how fussy I can be.

What can I say? Nothing to say except… Oh my GOSH!!! Harlequin are excellent. You were so nice to deal with and very nice and helpful to deal with from Start to finish. We had a fantastic night. Just perfect – Next time I get married I’m definitely going to have you play. Hardy har… Sure you only get married once or twice… Lol.

We have all voted for you in the band of the year comp, you guys deserve to win it again.

Hey Shane, How's things going with ye? I see ye still really busy, that's fab. I think I've sent two couples your way, I had such great memories....

Know you are busy and I apologise for not e-mailing you sooner, but yet intruding. Thank you more than I can say for adding to the joy and happiness of John and my wedding (Killashee, June 2nd 2009). The band were superb, no other word for it. Everything was right and we loved the way you brought us in for the first dance and our going away. All the guests who commented had only good and great things to say. Thank you so much for the piano recital at our arrival. It was a lovely surprise. All things come to an end but that is to allow even better things to happen. The end of the wedding preparations was the start of our married life. We had a lovely, busy honeymoon in Italy, John came back for a short time to Saudi and is now in Brisbane waiting for my arrival which should be sometime in October. We’ll be talking about Harlequin, probably at every wedding we attend in future. Thanks so much for our salsa and line-dancing sets. We never imagined you were so versatile. Our guests loved that part so much. Until we cross paths again.

To The weddings online team Hi, I just wanted to let you know how brilliant I find advertising with you and the great feedback I get from the many brides who use your website. Most of my bookings come via your website as you really are on the pulse with where brides want to be, what they are interested in and where they can find everything under one roof. I think you are the only online advertising company who really does the detail , who really matters in this industry when it comes to keeping up with trends and shaping the style of weddings. I have been with you four years and have been on other websites but they dont come close in terms of the volume of enquiries that I get from your website, honestly you are the best! So , I wanted to let you know and give you all a pat on the back for all your hard work and a big thank you for helping my business grow so much. With Thanks

I hope you are well. We are finally back to work and back to normal life! I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the brilliant night you gave us and our guests in Dromoland. From the entertainment during dinner to the dancing on the chairs at the end of the night – everyone had a ball and are still congratulating us on our choice of band!! Thank you so much for everything you did on the day/night. Your ceremony was particularly beautiful – everybody raved about it. What a lovely start to our marriage

Where you get the energy i'll never know. You are the Duracell bunny. From the ceremony to the afternoon, then night band and dj. You just rocked all day long.

Ye were the talking point of the whole day and have certainly created loads of new fans! Thanks so much again, especially you Shane, some man for one man!!

I had Harlequin playing at my wedding on the 31st December 2011 & they were amazing. Everyone at the wedding wanted to know the name of the band. They really made the day special & I couldn't recommend them enough. Shane knows how to get the crowd going & the dance floor was never empty. They are fantastic musicians. Best of luck to them for the weddings online 2012 awards. I will be voting for them.

Hi Shane and the rest of the guys in the amazing band that is Harlequin. Thank you so much for making our wedding so unforgettable on September 25th 2011 in Cabra Castle. The energy you gave to the crowd all night was totally electric. You made us so proud that we spent the time finding the best band in ireland for our wedding. Our guests are still talking about you. To see so many of the older guests hopping around to Sex is on Fire by the Kings of Leon said it all. Thanks for catering for everyone so brilliantly. Hopefully, we will see you again soon.

We used Harlequin for our wedding on 16th April 2011 and they were truly fantastic. People are still commenting about them over 1 month on. We went to see them in Cafe en Seine and were blown away by Shane, the lead singer's energy, unbelievable. The whole group gel very well together and sound fantastic. When speaking to Shane on the phone he helped us with our venue choice and was so honest and down to earth.....really brilliant. On the day we used them for a jazz trio as well as for the main evening entertainment. Harlequin didn't want to stop and played way beyond the call of duty. I have to say the dance floor was never empty, lots of happy people as Shane engaged with everyone and was hillarious. In fact words cant describe how good these guys are, we asked them to play some of our favourites when the DJ came on, instead they played them live including our first song which was a total shock to us! They are worth every penny and you will not regret it if you chose them. They made our wedding day very special and a big thanks to them. I am not surprised to read that they are wedding band of the year this year...well done guys.

Great band! Harlequin played at our wedding in June 2010. We cannot recommend them enough! All our guests commented on what a great band they are and everyone was up dancing all night. They have so much energy and they really make a huge effort interacting with the guests. The music was brilliant and we are so glad we chose Harlequi
