We were so happy that John was able to play for our drinks reception! He is a piano maestro and one of the nicest, most professional guys you'll meet. From piano versions of Bruce Springsteen songs to The Killers to the Fr. Ted & Game Of Thrones theme tunes and everything inbetween! We got loads of guests commenting how good the music was! Can't ask for more than that!!!

John played at our wedding in March 2017. His piano playing created a very relaxed atmosphere at the drinks reception and it was lovely to have some back ground instrumental music which I think everyone enjoyed

I first met John during afternoon tea at Hayfield Manor where he was playing. It was so beautiful that I made up my mind right there and then that he would play at my Wedding. John did not only play, but entertained our guest creating the perfect athmosphere during our drinks reception in the Maryborough Hotel gardens. We have received so many comments from our guests complimenting him on his talent and I have to honestly say that John it would not have been as enjoyable a reception if it hadn't been for his music. Thank you so much John. You will always get our recommendations!

John Leahy played for us after our wedding reception at the Mustard Seed in Ballingarry and he was wonderful. The ambiance was perfect, and he had an absolutely fantastic repertoire of songs. He was very gracious when joined by 'backing singers' from the wedding party and really created a brilliant atmosphere. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for any type of gathering, as he can cater for all tastes in music, from classical, to pop, rock, or trad. We had a very memorable evening. All our guests said it was the best wedding they were ever at. Thanks John!

John leahy recently played at our wedding in Ballyseede castle both during the reception and afterwards during the meal. He had a fantastic repertoire of songs and everyone really enjoyed his music. He greatly added to the ambience of our day and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to other couples who are looking for a professional piano player to play at their wedding.
