Panic Animal Wedding Band and DJ are fast becoming one of Ireland's greatest wedding band sensations. With a huge emphasis on creating a party atmosphere and keeping the dance floor full, it is no wonder why Panic Animal are the number one choice for many couples. With years of experience from performing at weddings, Panic Animal understand how to entertain the wedding couple most importantly, but also the several generations of guests in attendance at weddings. Our range of music spreads over 5 decades, so we can cater for all tastes!


Our service commences well before the wedding night. We will consult with you in assembling a set list catered to your every need. We play 60s.70s,80s,90s,00s intertwined with today’s top hits. Our set list is constantly being updated and reviewed – and if it is not on the setlist – we can certainly do our best to get it for you. We are here to help you in anyway we can to make your night a most memorable one for all involved.

Our fantastic lead female vocalist, accompanied by a range of live instruments, offers a fantastic range to our ensemble allowing us to cover songs which most bands are unable to reach. Ranging from all your wedding classics to all your classic rock / pop old and today’s hits.

Another service which we provide is our DJ performances – no need to book a separate DJ. With hi-tech digital desks and P.A. equipment, the band will tailor their sound and light show to suit the tone/volume and ambience required by the couple. They will provide all the equipment on the night for both band and DJ performances.

There are no words to describe just how brilliant these guys are, Our guests never left the dance floor from the moment they started to play, they were able to read the crowd perfectly and knew exactly what to sing to keep them dancing, we received such wonderful feedback from our guests about how much they had enjoyed the band. I would highly recommend Panicanimal for any occasion but especially for weddings
Response from Panic Animal
Hey guys, what a great night and thank you for your kind words. We always give 100% to what we do. xx

Brian and the panic animal crew joined us at my sisters wedding, my sister isn’t too well at the moment and has a huge fight ahead of her. They generously donated their time to make sure my sister and her new husband had an amazing night. We can’t thank you guys enough for all you done! Truly amazing talent and hearts of gold.
Response from Panic Animal
Your more than welcome guys....i hope you all had the best night possible. We were delighted we could help out and lucky we had the night free to do it......see you again soon xx

We had Panic Animal for our wedding in Sep 2018 and they were absolutely brilliant. We never met them or heard them live before our wedding day and went by previous online reviews. To say the least we were so so impressed, we had no input with the music except the first dance song and omg the dance floor was full all night and people are still commenting on how good they were months after the wedding. My advice is definitely go with your gut and if a band are outside your budget pay a little extra for them and cut back on other things as all people remember is the food, the people and most of all The BAND.. Thanks to all at Panic Animal who made our wedding night so fantastic. All the best for the future, Mary & Marty
Response from Panic Animal
Brilliant advice guys, i couldn't have said it better myself, thank you so much. See you both again soon im sure.

Panic Animal were just fantastic for our wedding. The floor was constantly full and everyone was asking about them. Really appreciated the effort too to learn our first dance - they did a fantastic job. So easy to deal with them.
Response from Panic Animal
Guys...thanks for your kind words. Also, thanks for having us on your special day. xx

Panic Animal were the difference between us having a great or unforgettable wedding. They got the party started early and everyone stayed on the dance floor all night. Anyone we talked to, raved about how good the band were. We know that no other band could've have performed as well as they did. Panic Animal were the first thing we booked when we got engaged and they didn't let us down.
Response from Panic Animal
Its always great to play at our friends wedding.....what a great night guys......see you soon xx

Panic Animal played at our wedding and they were brilliant. Right from when we spoke to Brian we knew this was the band we wanted. They were very helpful in letting us know how the night would go and anything we asked they did without hesitation. We really could not recommend this band highly enough. If you do book Panic Animal for your wedding you will not be disappointed.
Response from Panic Animal
Thanks so much guys....our pleasure and once again thanks for having us.....see you again im sure xx

Panic Animal are just awesome! Our guests rocked the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG. Right from the very first time I spoke to Brian he was very professional, very friendly and made our experience in booking a wedding band an enjoyable one. Ali is an amazing singer and certainly knows how to rock a wedding dance floor!
Response from Panic Animal
Well guys.....nothing better than a local wedding...what a fantastic night with a huge dance floor all night long. Thanks again for having us guys
Review by
It might sound like a clichè but I cannot speak highly enough of Brian and the crew, it's refreshing to meet such talented people with no ego! Young and old strutted their stuff on the floor from beginning to end. Their cover of Sunday Morning for our first dance will stay with us forever!
Response from Panic Animal
No ego.....love it haha....We still play your 1st dance in our set....what a cracking tune.

We had our big day on the 8th of June in Crover House in Cavan. We knew Panic Animal would be good, but they really blew us all away on the night. They played a great mix of songs to suit all tastes and had the dancefloor full all night long. We didn’t leave the dancefloor ourselves for the night! Ali’s voice is just incredible – she can sing any style of song. The whole night we had people asking us where we found the band and checking their name, and also since the wedding we had so many people commenting on how good the band were. They managed to get everyone out to dance, even those who wouldn’t normally! They have a great ability to read the crowd and play what suits. The hotel staff even told us that they left the door open to the kitchens so they could listen to the band! It is little surprise they won Wedding Band of the Year – much deserved. They are also incredibly professional and very easy to deal with. Brian is a real gentleman and we knew from speaking to him once that we were in very safe hands. Now I want to see when their next gig is so that we can go and see them play again! Can’t recommend them enough, you will have no regrets if you book Panic Animal.
Response from Panic Animal
Guys. Thank you both so much for everything. Glad you had a ball. Brill words and many thanks again

Panic animal played at our wedding in June..from the moment I contacted Brian he was just such a gent and pleasure to deal with!

Panic Animal were fantastic! They played at our wedding a few weeks ago & we have already had friends ask who they were so they could book them too! We had a small enough wedding so we were worried about keeping the dance floor full but was not a bother to them at all the floor was hopping! They were fantastic! Would 100% recommend! Book them fast or your date will be gone ;)

What can I really say about this band other than exceptional!!! They play a super range of music that gets everyone dancing. Ali's voice is so beautiful and her range is amazing. Brian was so easy to deal with and was quick to respond to any query. They made our night and everyone who was there has commented on how great they were. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
Response from Panic Animal
Ali can sure sing the phone book, and i always try to be quick with my emails, i understand couples are looking for information soon.
Review by
To Brian, Ali & all of the band, myself & Jack want to say a huge thank you for your excellent performance at our wedding. From the minute you started playing our guests were up & dancing & didn’t sit down all night! I heard numerous guests saying their feet were sore the next day from all the dancing! Me included. Ye were just brilliant and knew exactly what to play to our guests. Thanks for making our day so memorable.

The band were super responsive and friendly when we booked them, right through to the end of the wedding. They went out of their way to help the bride to sing a song. Panic Animal are top quality musicians and the singing was fantastic. We pretty much received compliments on the band from everyone who attended the wedding.
Response from Panic Animal
Great night Darren....hope all is good your end and what a great job Jane did on the song...brilliant, thanks again
Review by
These guys are band of the year for good reason. They are fantastic musicians and you won’t regret booking them for a second, they were everything we could have wished for and more! Also they are amazing people, our youngest has additional needs and I can’t put into words how much their willingness to show him their instruments and to make him comfortable meant to us as a family. Thanks Ali, Brian and the guys for everything we couldn’t recommend you highly enough if we tried. Keara & Gary
Response from Panic Animal
Keara and Gary, our pleasure .Many thanks again for having the whole Panic Animal crew on board.

I don't think i could say anymore than what people always say about this band.. Amazing is just one word. Choosing them was an easy decision for me as I had heard them twice and knew I wanted them for my wedding. Ali has such and amazing voice and Brian is just so lovely to deal with also and all together they are a perfect package. They accommodated everything i asked for and people i didn't know could dance didn't leave the dance floor all night (including myself)! I would highly recommend them to anyone! Thanks again guys for making our night x
Response from Panic Animal
Great words guys....i try and make things easy for our couples.....its not hard to be informative and friendly. From all of us, thanks again.

We chose Panic Animal to play at our Wedding and we weren't disappointed they were brilliant the dance floor was never empty. Ali the lead singer has a brilliant voice and the band in whole put a great twist on all songs. They are very easy to deal with and very accommodating, Brian is very professional and relaxed.

From begining to end Panic Animal were the right band for us. Our date depended on their availability. Starting from the beginning, my husband met Brian years ago and was chatting to him when Brian mentioned about this band that he was in and told him to check them out. That night, my now hubby decided he had chosen our wedding band (before he had even proposed!!!) The guys were so easy to deal with and so helpful, so professional, nothing was too much trouble. Not even the journey to Sligo... Moving on to the day of our wedding they were amazing. The floor was full all night. Ali has an amazing voice. All our guests were talking about them and how talented Panic Animal are.. I can imagine that they will have to make the journey to Sligo again! Thanks guys for adding to our perfect day.
Response from Panic Animal
Another local wedding for us guys,,,,,and sometimes its not easy play to your home crowd, but wow, what a wedding, 5 star floor all night, we loved it, chat soon. xx

I could go on and on about how brilliant this band are but to sum it up....At the end of the night I was told by the hotel that panic animal were the best band that ever played there. They blew us away. There were only 90 people at the wedding but with this band it felt like 500. We can't wait to come and hear you again some day! You made our day so special. Catherine and tj xxx
Response from Panic Animal

These guys are absolutely amazing, just book them! Ali has an amazing voice and Brian is so good to deal with, really professional and made me feel at ease at every point in the lead up to the wedding. I really had no idea what type of music I wanted, other than I wanted people on the dance floor! We had a real mixture of ages at our wedding and the guys just read the room and played songs the got everyone on the dance floor. Our guests were raving about the band afterwards. They were class, thanks guys! ???????? Sarah & Paul

Panic Animal played at our wedding on October 21st 2017. We had seen them play at another wedding and really enjoyed it. Despite this though we decided to shop around and look at everyone on the circuit and make an informed decision. When we got a quote from Brian we were pleasantly surprised and along with what we already knew it was a no brainer. Before the day itself, Brian was great to deal with and one the day itself there were no hitches. The band arrived in plenty of time, set up quickly and before we knew we had danced our first dance and the floor was full! Our guests were from different backgrounds and across a wide age group but there was plenty there for everyone. Like many others have said, I lost count of the number of people who asked me who the band were and where they were from. These guys know how to make a wedding swing, so just let them do it and enjoy! Thanks a million lads!
Response from Panic Animal
Hi Guys....what a fantastic review.....kinds words and full of details.Thanks a million and catch up soon I'm sure. Regards Brian.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Panic Animal for creating such an amazing atmosphere at our wedding. Our wedding was on the day of Hurricane Ophelia. Panic Animal arrived at our venue at least 8 hours early, in order to ensure they made it before the worst of the hurricane hit. It was clearly so important to them not to let us down, and this meant a huge amount to us. The band were incredible on the night and created a great atmosphere. They kept the dance floor packed all night and played a wide variety of music suitable for all age groups. The lead singer, Ali, has an absolutely amazing voice, and the band as a whole were so much better than we could possibly have imagined. They made every song their own, and we were amazed at how they could make such great songs sound so much better. Neither of us usually dance, but Panic Animal created such a fun atmosphere that we hardly left the dance floor all night, and we both had the time of our lives. Everyone had a great time, and lots of our guests commented afterwards on what a great band Panic Animal were. Prior to the wedding, Brian was a pleasure to deal with throughout. He was friendly, approachable, and always responded to our queries quickly. He put our minds at ease and we felt we could leave everything in his hands on the night. We would highly recommend Panic Animal to anyone looking for a wedding band. If you book them, you will definitely not regret it! Lena & Fikre

Absolutely exceptional, the guest were so impressed! So friendly and professional to work with as well. ZERO stress working with these guys, can't rate highly enough.

If you had 10 stars I would give these guys 10, they were absolutely amazing, Ali can literally sing anything, they are also the nicest people to deal with. They were worth every penny, if you are looking for a wedding band don't look any further they are the band for you!!
Response from Panic Animal
10 Stars....i love it....brill guys thanks so much for your kind words. Hopefully see you both soon at some stage.

Panic animal are one of the best if not the BEST wedding band around, they were so helpful, anything you asked for they were happy to help. They kept the dancefloor full all night and played a set list that everyone enjoyed, young and old. If you're looking for a good wedding band i would highly recommend these guys!!
Response from Panic Animal
Thanks a million Sarah...your a star.....and you guys looked like you had a honeymoon from heaven. So Jealous haha.....see you both soon i hope . Regards Brian

I looked through so many wedding bands hoping to find the best, and we certainly did with Panic Animal. Despite our day over running, they were all absolutely charming and always a pleasure to work with...they played without a break, and even let us take part. It's so sad to see reports of lip-syncing out there...never anything like that with these guys, Ali has a fantastic voice and the band are deeply talented musicians. They sound exactly as they do on their videos; they sound amazing. Teenage Dirtbag blew the room away...
Response from Panic Animal
Well Nick, it was a fantastic night with plenty of things going on......no break and all, thanks once again
Review by
This band is amazing I can't recommend them enough. Everybody was talking about how great they were and the atmosphere they brought to the venue was unbelievable!!! I'm SO glad I picked this band for the most important day of my life they made it unforgettable.

Panic animal were 100% from day one on booking, right through to our wedding day. Everyone commented about how amazing the band were and how well they adapted to what everyone liked and enjoyed.. we will be going to listen to them again when playing in a pub near us, we just wish we could rewind time to have a blast with them for our wedding day again. Panic animal really made it a brill finish to a spectacular day.
Response from Panic Animal
Hi guys, thanks a million for your kind words, looking forward to seen you both soon again

Panic Animal played at our wedding on the 7th July this year. From the moment Ali sang our first song 'At last' until the very last song - the dance floor was hopping all night. I've lost count of the amount of people who have said to me since how good our band were. Brian was a gentleman to deal with and my advice to future brides and grooms is to book Panic Animal as your band because you will 100% be guaranteed a great night!
Response from Panic Animal
What a great 1st dance choice,......we hadnt played that one in ages and it was great to get it again, we try make it as easy for our couples as possible.

We were lucky enough to have Panic Animal play at our wedding , we had heard they were so good and really wanted them but our original wedding day they weren't available so we changed our wedding date to get this band !!!! And boy are we glad we did !! From the moment they arrived at our venue their professionalism and friendliness shone through. They had the dance floor packed from the moment they began to play right through the whole night .They had young and old on the floor !! They really created a fab atmosphere and these guys really made the evening for us .All our guests commented on the band and still do! Thanks so much Brian and Ali Davis and the rest of the crew for a rocking dance floor and great night !!!! Guys, if you need a wedding band don't hesitate to book these guys trust me !!!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Had everyone on the dance floor for the whole night! Even people who wouldn't normally get up to dance were dancing their socks off!! Absolutely everyone at our wedding commented on how brilliant the band were and how amazing the lead singer was. We couldn't have asked for a better band for our wedding. To anyone in doubts about what band to go with, Panic Animal is definitely the way to go. I honestly can't say enough good things about how brilliant and professional they were.

Brilliant band. Incredibly sound group and Brian was a pleasure to deal with, he made the whole process very easy for us. I was totally undecided about a first dance and Brian was great to chat to and advise and put us at ease. On the night they were brilliant, had everyone out on the floor for the night, great variety of songs that Alison nails with her amazing voice. Everyone was praising them on the night and the next day, couldn't have asked for better, would definitely recommend this band.
Response from Panic Animal
Well guys, your right, its an easy simple process when you know what your doing, great to see so many familiar faces at the wedding. See you soon im sure xx
Review by
Panic Animal were brilliant to work with from the very first day. Brian kept in touch with us and responded to any queries we had on the run up to the day. On the day itself they were brilliant, they arrived in plenty of time to the venue and set up without any hassle. During the set they played a great mix of songs of different genre making sure that the dance floor was never empty. The quality of the songs was also much better than we could have hoped for, with several guests commenting how just how good they were. Myself and Fiona were delighted with Panic Animal as they made so much of our night memorable.
Response from Panic Animal
Once again guys. Thanks a million for having us as part of your day. Full floor all night. Thats what we do best.

Thank you Panic Animal for playing at our wedding! We really couldn't have asked for a better band. They kept the dance floor full all night. They catered for all age groups, songs from the 80's, 90's waltz, jives, to modern pop songs and rock classics! Everyone keeps saying how brilliant our band was. The room was hopping! Ali's voice is wow!!!! Brian was so easy to work with. Quick response to all emails and texts. He put our mind at ease and really listened to what we wanted. Brian also did the DJ set for us. It was brilliant. He could play any request on the night, and again kept the dance floor full. Thank you Panic Animal! We can't wait to hear you playing again sometime :) :)
Response from Panic Animal
We play a mixed bag guys.......we play to the floor and what a floor it was. Many thanks again for having us. See you again im sure. Regards Brian

So from myself and Claire thank you so much for a brilliant night and we will definitely see you guys again.

We chose Panic Animal as our wedding band and it was an inspired decision! From day one, Brian was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was always very responsive and professional in any dealings we had with him. Panic Animal put in a brilliant performance on the day itself and we received many compliments on our choice of band. The singer Ali has a voice I could listen all day and their choice of songs ensured that the dance floor was always full and hopping with a mix of all ages. I’d have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a first rate wedding band.
Response from Panic Animal
Ah thanks a million guys,our pleasure. We hope to see you both again soon at some stage. I really appreciate your review as it helps our future work. Many thanks again. Regards Brain

We would just like to thank Panic Animal for doing such an amazing job at our wedding. Brian was lovely to deal with in the run up and Ali was amazing on the day as were the rest of the band. Ali went along with our eclectic taste as we didn't want anything too traditional but they kept the dancefloor filled the whole night. They also did a great job for the first and father/daughter dance. All the guests were raving about them. We would recommend them to anyone. We loved their rock edgy vibe but they can do all the favourites as well. They're a class act.
Response from Panic Animal
Absolute pleasure guys. Thanks for having us as part of your day. Once people are talking im a good way about us,well that a good job done so.....one again, thank you both.....

To say we were happy with 'Panic Animal' would be an understatement. From the booking process through to the final song of the night, I would describe our experience with this band as being exceptional. Brian met us before the meal and put our minds at ease regarding the first dance (which we were fretting over) and what would be happening with the music for the evening. By the end of the conversation, it was one less thing we had to worry about. From the very first dance, the floor was full and stayed that way for the remainder of the night. The song selection and energy brought by the band was brilliant from beginning to end. Those of our guests who approached us about the music , said most people there did not want the night to end.

We've just had the most amazing day of our lives at our wedding which was topped off by Panicanimal who filled the dance floor from the first dance right through to the end of the DJ set, hours of energy from all the guys. Ali has truly a unique voice which carry's off any song she performs. Our guests were not disappointed & neither were we. We cannot recommend Panicanimal enough as a wedding band. From the moment we met Brian & his team, the reassurance that our night of entertainment for our family & friends was totally looked after by them ensured us that we could kick back, relax and party the night away! Thank you guys, our guests have not stopped raving about you! Many thanks, Stephanie & Joe xx
Response from Panic Animal

We want to thank Panic Animal for an amazing day!! They learnt a little known 80s power ballad as our first dance which meant the world to us; from that point on they kept the dance floor packed all night playing amazing music that appealed to all our guests, in fact we probably didn't speak to our guests that much as we were all too busy bopping away on the dance floor! In fact the band played far longer than expected and when we tried to give them a little extra as a token of thanks they wouldn't hear a word of it! On behalf of myself and my new hubby we want to say a massive thank you to the band they are a class act and if you haven't booked your band yet get in to them straight away, are only regret is that we can't do it all over again! Bernadette and Mark
Response from Panic Animal
Hi guys, Well that was just a mental wedding, all ages dancing all night. The photographers even posted on our Facebook wall quoting "we were the best wedding band they had seen all year". Thanks a million for picking such a cracking 1st dance song.....we might even keep it in the set. We always try to give a little more on the night also. We wish you both a very happy future.

We wanted something a little less cheesy than your usual wedding band and viewed scores of them before deciding on Panic Animal. We actually tried to get them for two separate dates and were just lucky they were available for our third choice of date. Panic Animal were so friendly and responsive. They're talented musicians with a great lead in Ali. They played a wonderful mix of songs that kept everyone dancing for the whole night. I'm so happy we were able to book them for our wedding. They were superb! I can't speak highly enough of them and would recommend them in a heartbeat.
Response from Panic Animal
Thanks so much guys.....A cracking night and we hope you always remember it....

Panic animal is the band to book for your wedding, from the start, they are so easy going, relax and so professional! We had the best band ever! I am so happy we choose them, they played so many different songs, that everyone was happy and dancing! And Brian played some french songs in the dj part (i am from France as well as some of the guests) it was brilliant. And Ali voice is just superb, they really made our day so much more special! I already recommend them to 3 of my friends!
Response from Panic Animal

Panic Animal were brilliant, so glad we booked them. They had the floor packed for the night. Ali's voice is amazing and they banged out the tunes one after the other. They did a great mix of songs from rock to pop. Book them and do it soon as this band are so good they will be booked out months in advance.

One of the most important things to us on our wedding day was the band. We wanted something original, that would cater to all crowds and keep the dance floor full all night, and boy did Panic Animal deliver! They were absolutely fantastic, people are still talking about our wedding band! From the very first time I emailed Brian he has been extremely helpful, friendly and so easy to deal with. Ali's voice is superb she could sing the phonebook and you would drop what you are doing to listen. My husband and I have become like groupies now we try and go see them anytime they are playing gigs in our area! I highly recommend this band, you won't be disappointed.
Response from Panic Animal

These guys were amazing in every way. Very helpful with choosing our first dance & really did make our wedding perfect.
Response from Panic Animal
Hi Louise. Your 1st dance was perfect, We enjoyed playing that one. What a great venue also and your crowd made the night, See you guys soon.

I was recommended Panicanimal on another wedding forum and from just seeing their promo video I wanted to book them, their video actually doesn't do justice when You See them live they are amazing! We had two dates in mind and were organising a wedding in seven months, so when they weren't available one date that made our mind up to go with the second date, we really wanted them! From the first time we contacted Brian right up until the wedding night , he was friendly, professional and totally put us at ease. Coming from a music background, the band was so important to me and we could not have picked better. Panicanimal look great, sound great and have amazing interaction with the crowd. Their catalogue of music appeals to young and old and your floor will be packed with them Can't recommend them highly enough!
Response from Panic Animal
Hi Cara.hope you had a great Christmas. Would you believe we're off to Tullamore again tonight to play a wedding in the same venue and room as yours. You were always a super excited bride but so easy going.....a very happy go-lucky person. And some of your girls sang with us that night too....We're back in the Bridge house for a public gig 6th Jan,,,so call in and say hi.....many thanks Cara Brian

We loved panic animal the minute we seen them, we had been told about them from a girl at our wedding venue she said if she was ever getting married they would be her choice. I was slightly nervous as I have been to weddings before and the band hadn't been great and it seems like such a waste. We had the opposite experience, we didn't want them to end. We cannot recommend Panic Animal enough, if you are looking for a great band to get everyone started and are great and lovely to deal with, please book these guys, they are extremely talented. Thank you for making our wedding amazing. Christine & Paul.
Response from Panic Animal
Hi again guys...thanks a million for those kind words. I hope we will see you both again at a gig. The Keadeen is always a great wedding. Great hotel. I hope you guys will always remember your day. Regards and thanks, Brain.

Panic Animal were amazing at our wedding. Too cool for school and very professional at the same time. They worked the crowd perfectly. Reading them and adapting their set list to keep all guests on the dance floor. I went to see a dozen other wedding bands before coming across these guys. Not one of the other bands even came close to what panic Animal have. Fantastic musicians, brilliant singer and a clear conection that makes them gel so well as a band. Have no doubt Panic Animal will impress.
Response from Panic Animal
Ha, brill guys, never to cool to go back to school. Thanks for your very kind words. I remember you going to see a load of bands, but in the end.....you make the right choice, and you knew your crowd so well. We try hard and it pays off thank God, The next time you guys are back in the country be sure to see where we are playing. Hopefully meet again soon, All the best, Brain.

Excellent band, from start to finish great music, great entertainment and not a person sitting down all night. Made our wedding evening such a great night to remember would recommend highly.
Response from Panic Animal
Great venue guys, Set Theater Kilkenny. And what a great night, the crowd were fantastic, more like a concert than a wedding but truly epic night. You guys were so kind and very easy to deal with.....hope all is great your end. Next time your home. let me know and i will see if we are playing kilkenny. Many Thanks Brain

Panic animals were a great band and so helpful on our wedding day seen as we had it at such short notice, couldn't have asked for a nicer bunch to be fair and there music was wxactly what we wanted, everyone after the wedding commented on them.
Response from Panic Animal

I've known this band for quite a few years from playing in our local bar. What an absolutely fantastic band and an honour to have them play on our big day! They go to huge lengths to deliver the perfect performance and the professionalism is outstanding! Couldn't come across better people. Myself and my husband lived in canada and organized to have our wedding back in Ireland august 2016 and we knew who we wanted straight away! Brian and Ally are just amazing to deal with and came back from holidays a couple of days early just to be there for our big day! I have no doubt in my mind they are deserving of wedding band of the year! Panic Animal is the best band in Ireland!! :)
Response from Panic Animal
Hi guys, thank you both for those kind word. Its always more nerving to play to a family of musicians but what a great night., And your DA and Ian for playing with us.....your a super supportive bride Lisa and thanks for that also. I hope all is going well up north these days....im sure we'll see you in kilkenny soon i hope. Many thanks Brain

Where to start! I decided last minute to have a band for our wedding! I found Panic Animal and oh my god they were the find of the century! At no stage did I sit myself down whilst they were playing! And neither did our guests! It's been over 6 months since our wedding and people are still talking about them! Honestly if I can recommend one thing it would be... book panic animal... you will not be disappointed!!

From start to finish panic animal were the most professional and entertaining band I've ever seen. From initial contact with Brian to seeing them perform before we booked them they couldn't have been more helpful, from suggesting what would and wouldn't work. They even learned our first dance song so they could play it live. Such a nice touch. Ali's voice is unreal. Nearly a year later people are commenting that they are one of the best bands they've seen at a wedding and the dance floor was never empty. If you want a band that pull out all the stops and keep the party going all night. You would be stupid not to book panic animal.
Response from Panic Animal
Hi Cristin, as you know id prefer to chat on the phone about your plans. Ali is unreal alright, one of the best live vocalist out there. Filling floors is what we do best as you very well know and i really appreciate the review and kind words. Many thanks again for choosing Panic Animal as you professional wedding band. We do our best, and thats all it takes. Regards Brain
