Scruffy was absolutely top class. From the very get go he had the place rocking. When your sitting at the top table and looking down seen the older generation dancing on top of chairs you know your in for a good night. Our guests are already saying it was the wedding of the year so once again thank you so much. Top entertainer.

We had Scruffy Duffy for our wedding in September and he was absolutely amazing! He had the room buzzing from the get go and everyone had a blast. His professionalism from the first point of contact was second to none. If we had any questions at all, he answered them straight away and nothing was a problem. He made our day so memorable for everyone who was there. It was absolutely crazy but that sums us up completely. The best money spent and I couldn't recommend him to couples for their wedding or organisations for events/parties enough. Thank you scruffy duffy and team.

I cannot reccomend Scruffy Duffy enough! We laughed from start to finish, as did our guests, young and old! One month on from our wedding. and people are still talking about the fun ,energy @ crac he provided. From the minute we first phoned scruffy, he made us feel so at ease and even gave tips on other aspects of the wedding. He took care of everything on the day and took everyone into consideration, ie giving my brother and nephews ear defenders for the kids ,and also giving dad helpful tips before his speech! A true all rounder and a MUST have at your wedding !!! If you want a lively fun day, and a room rocking he's your man!!

From the moment we met scruffy, he was friendly, chatty and reassuring about what he could provide for us on the day, he did not disappoint, we booked scruffy for MC during the meal and dj following band. The meal entertainment went beyond our expectations, everyone was on a high from the moment scruffy entered the room, there was speculation and curiosity as to what might happen with signs on each table to bring on competition for the loudest side of the room (bride or groom?!!!) Everyone cheered as the groomsmen entered together followed by the bridesmaids with music to bring on the moves as they made their way to the top table. Everyone was laughing, cheering as we made our entrance. The top table was on their feet, signs in the air, laughter, singing which encourages the guests to keep the atmosphere going. We chose 4 lads to take part in the surprise fashion show, the surprise did not make them hesitate, they put on a great show, it was absolutely hilarious with tears of laughter filling the room, the MOH and best man did a karaoke sing off and everyone joined in. It was the best decision we ever made booking scruffy, it removed the dullness between courses when people begin to lack in conversation and focus on how full they are getting, the guests did not get a moment to stop and think and they were absorbed in the whole show which also led them nicely to the dance floor when the band began as they were on a high, the floor was never empty and as the night went on, the wildness continued with scruffy ending the night as dj. Our guests are still talking about it, everyone from young to old are still laughing at moments from the show, couples due to get married are getting scruffy for their wedding, they never seen anything like it. Thank you scruffy for making our day so fun, wild and memorable, we had the best day of our lives and you were the central part of it all. Caroline and Aidan

I cannot recommend Scruffy Duffy enough. He was a pleasure to deal with from the second we met him. Our wedding ceremony was very relaxed but also had a little humour in there too. Cyril is quiet shy and doesnt like alot attention focused on him and Scruffy dealt with this perfectly. Our reception was brilliant fun throughout. I am from the west of Ireland and living in the Midlands, so I had all my family and friends travel for the wedding, all the guest are still talking about how all of our guests mingled amongst one another which was exactly what we wanted and that is all down to Scruffy. Nothing is too big or small a request. Please believe me when I say we had the best day, people will speak of your wedding for years to come with Scruffy Duffy. He is an absolute gentleman and an absolute pro at what he does.

We had Scruffy as our entertainment at our wedding recently and what a day it was. From contacting him originally before we had to postpone, he was nothing but helpful and very quick to respond to any questions we had at a time that suited us. The crack, laughing and dancing made our day and our guests day. The room was electric and stayed that way for the rest of the night because of this. We would highly recommend Scruffy for any wedding.

Scruffy Duffy was incredible. He made our day and our covid wedding. We wanted to have 300 but could only manage 30 on the day. He was very interactive with our guests, while adhering to all regulations! We had great craic music and games. I would highly recommend Scruffy Duffy to be your all in one music/band/entertainment for your wedding. The best local entertainment around.

We had DJ Scruffy Duffy entertain us and our guests at our wedding in the Radisson Sligo two weeks ago and what can I say boy did he entertain... From the very first meeting with "Scruffy" we both could feel the confidence oozing from the guy and we knew we were going to have a wedding like no other. His attention to detail and in depth knowledge of how such an occasion will pan out was top class.. To bring a room full of people who I suppose were just expecting to have dinner....on to their feet from the very start right till the last song of the night.. We had a bride and groom quiz show, we had a mid course fashion show we had a best man Freddie mercury tribute and Chief bridesmaid Tina Turner dance off all the while guests some of whom on standing on their chairs at this stage singing along to songs you would normally find yourself singing at 3am after a few too many shandy's!!! To hear our name Mr. And Mrs Butler echo out over and over on the microphone by Scruffy really made it... it really is a special day for a couple and to hear applause every time your name and your wife's new name and it just hit home how monumental the day is... We can't recommend Scruffy enough and on behalf of myself and my wife would like to thank DJ Scruffy Duffy for exceeding our expectations and making our big day one that we and our guests will and have been talking about for quite some time... Regards, Mr. Neil and Sarah Butler

I wish I could turn the clock back one week and give our guests the best day of their life all over again. Alan and I cannot thank you enough. You are simply amazing at what you do and the best entertainer in the industry. I'd say our wedding will be remembered forever. You rocked the place and even the hotel said they never seen a wedding like it. I cannot wait to get the DVD and relive it all over again. I believe 4 of our guests are planning on booking you also. From the bottom of our heart THANK YOU for the best day of our lives xxx The Dynans already loved you but now 240 more people do too xx

We got married in April this year. We aren't a huge fan of live bands so we knew we wanted something different for our wedding. We had been to two weddings where DJ Scruffy Duffy MC'd during the meal and he was unbelievable. When we got engaged, Scruffy was one of the first people we booked. We decided we wanted him to do the whole day - MC during the meal and do the music for the entire night. He really is unbelievable at what he does. He gets the crowd going and fills the room with energy and fun. I was a bit apprehensive about what the few older people at our wedding would think but I had nothing to worry about. My aunts and uncles were up on chairs waving their banners in the air and my Dad who doesn't drink even said the next day that Scruffy was "class" ???? If you want something different for your wedding, look up his videos. I can't explain the amount of craic he brings to a wedding. The Mr & Mrs quiz, the Maid of Honor/Bestman dance off and the fashion show keep your guests highly entertained during the meal. Thanks a mill for making our wedding The Best Day Scruffy. You really did have the room "rocking" ????????

We had Scruffy for our wedding a week ago and to say he was unbelievable is an understatement! He absolutely blew us away!! He was electric from start to finish and the floor was still full at 2am shouting for more! During the meal the room was hopping- some people said they forgot to eat as they were on such a high! Our guests have not stopped talking about him since - even the bar man told us the next day it was the best wedding he had ever been to !! ???? This was all down to Scruffy! He really made our wedding day and was the best money we ever spent!! When he promises to Rock your wedding he does not lie!! He is the ultimate showman and a professional through and through!! He was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and is an absolute gentleman! Thank you Scruffy - you made our day and give us and our guests memories that will last a lifetime!! So if you want a something different, something super entertaining, something WOW, Scruffy is definitely DEFINITELY your man!!!! ????????????????????

We can’t thank Scruffy enough for all he did on our Wedding Day. Scruffy was MC during the meal at our wedding on Saturday and also DJ after the band. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and are still talking about it. Our guests had never been to a wedding like it and he had us dancing from the very start of the meal. We enjoyed every minute of it. He created the exact lively atmosphere that we wanted and we will be talking about it for a long time to come. We would highly recommend booking Scruffy for your big day, he made ours.

We had Scruffy's full wedding show including the ceremony at Kilronan Castle. What a brilliant day & night it turned out to be. We were a little anxious leading up to the day about how our guest would interact, we had nothing at all to worry about, what a show Scruffy put on from the ceremony being intimate & inclusive but not to formal, which lead on to the madness. Nobody was expecting what was to follow. Half our guests were dancing on the chairs before the 2nd course was served. Even the older guests gave it large, a sight to seen. We had a dance off, a lip sink battle & all sorts of madness. Scruffy puts everything into entertaining the crowd & took all the pressure off us from the day we signed up with him. We spoke to the majority of our guests over the following days/weeks & everyone said it was the best wedding they attended & If they knew about Scruffy Duffy, they would have loved to have their own wedding just like that. Some planning their big day said they will most definitely hire DJ Scruffy. Keith & Orla would like to thank you Scruffy for making our day one that will never be forgotten & would advise anyone looking for something different for their wedding to sign up to the madness. Thanks again Scruffy ???? Orla & Keith

If there’s one thing you want for your wedding day, it’s to have a day that everyone will remember! DJ Scruffy Duffy is by far the best entertainment around! We had 80 year olds standing on chairs, we had children laughing at all of the adults in costumes and myself and my husband had prime position watching the Guests in the catwalk, and the dance off competitions! We were worried it wouldn’t be for everyone but we couldn’t have been more wrong. He sets the pace for young and old and works the room to suit every age and personality of your guests! From the minute you enter the room, the atmosphere is electric! The music was fab, the commentary was so funny and the way he works the room is truly unforgettable. I have been lucky enough to be a guest at two of his weddings also and honestly a normal wedding will never be the same now! Book him don’t even think about it just book him!!!

We had scruffy for the full wedding day package . We got married in 2017 and to this day we have friends still talking about our day . Some of our guests were standing on chairs before the soup was even served. The day absolutely flew and unfortunately it was over before we knew it . The wedding planner in the hotel said she never saw a wedding as lively as ours . Scruffy was so professional through the whole day . If someone didn’t want to get involved he left them alone but anyone that engaged with him had the best of crack for the day . We would have no hesitation recommending scruffy and he is well worth his fee.

It is hard to put into words how good this man is, simply because there are no words that can do him justice. He is out on his own in relation to entertainment, professionalism, liveliness and having the craic. Most of the guests at our wedding never saw or heard of Scruffy Duffy but by the end everyone knew his name and were raving about how good he was. He had the whole wedding party and guests up on there feet from the time they went into the hall until the time he finished. To this day people still say how good he was and that they will never forget how good our wedding was. All we can say Scruffy is thanks so much for making or day a day to remember forever.
