Kelly and Damien played for our ceremony and reception and we could not recommend them more. They were a joy to deal with from our first email enquiry and always responded quickly to us. They have an expansive song list, but were also more than willing to play two new songs for us during the ceremony. The music in our ceremony was really important to us and they nailed it - their wonderful performance will always be part of our memories of the day. For the reception they kept our guests entertained with their great mix of songs and many of them commented on how fantastic they were. They were even honest enough to let us know when we slightly overpaid them on the day! Live music for your ceremony and/or reception might seem like a bit of a luxury, but Kelly and Damien added so much to our day that we couldn't picture it without them.

Kelly and Damien played our evening drinks reception and they were just perfect! They read the room so well and later had the whole place up dancing. I'm so glad we found them, and would 100% recommend! They created the perfect atmosphere and our guests loved them. We were also last minute arranging, and they were extremely prompt in communication and accommodating us.

Something Blue played at both our church wedding ceremony and the drinks reception, for our wedding in October, and we were absolutely blown away by them! Kelly's voice is soulful and unforgettable, and complimented so beautifully by Damien's phenomenal guitar playing. We had a combination of instrumental and vocal pieces, and our guests are still talking about how wonderful they were. Kelly and Damien were so lovely to liaise with and we couldn't recommend them more highly !

We are so grateful to Kelly and Damien and how special they made our wedding. We planned our wedding from the U.S., but they were so easy to work with -- professional, prompt, and kind to with answers to questions, and so helpful in helping us choose music. They were wonderful on our wedding day, even when we had rain and still had our ceremony outside! Wish we had time to chat with them and listen to more of their music during our reception, but we were distracted with photo-taking. We heard nothing but glowing reviews from our guests. We highly recommend them! Krista and Rory

Where do we start- from the first point of contact to eventually securing our wedding date with Kelly & Damian, they were so professional and personable to deal with. Our guests are still raving about our reception music. It was one of the hottest days in Ireland in years and this did not phase Kelly and Damian, they sang outside not a bother to them! The quality of their music is incredible and they are a perfect addition to any wedding. A very talented pair. Would 100 % recommend.

We had the best wedding day ever and are so pleased that Kelly and Damien were a part of it and contributed so much to the memories that we will cherish forever. They were the perfect choice for the perfect day. So easy to work with to plan our songlist, including learning new songs just for us, so professional and just so, so delightful to hear them play for us. Do not hesitate to book them for your event, they are everything you are hoping for! Thanks again guys!

Kelly and Damien were absolutely fantastic! We had them for our ceremony and drinks reception and they really created a great atmosphere. Kelly was really supportive throughout the whole process and helped me decide the music through the ceremony as I really wasn't sure what I was doing. What's more is that they also learned songs not on their playlist as they were important songs to us as a couple. I couldn't rate Something Blue highly enough!

Kelly and Damien provided the music for our outdoor ceremony and drinks reception at Waterford Castle and we couldn't have been happier with them. From the first point of contact they were so professional, friendly and helpful. They have an amazing playlist which would undoubtedly suit all tastes and they even learned two new songs for us which they performed so beautifully during the ceremony. All day long our guests and other suppliers were commenting on how wonderful the music was and how flawless Kelly's voice is. Any couple who are considering Something Blue should not delay booking, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Kelly and Damien for setting the tone for a wonderful day, Jillian and Chris.

I can honestly say that Something Blue were one of the best decisions we made for our Wedding! We were organising fron Australia and Kelly was the most lovely, friendly & responsive supplier out of everyone. When it came to our music, no song was off limit & they learned & played each song to perfection. One of my favourite moments of our whole Wedding day was when we were at the alter & in the middle of all the nerves & adrenalin, Kelly started to sing "Oh Holy Night" and it was so moving & beautifully sung that I closed my eyes to listen to her. It gave me a second to breathe & to truely stop & take in the moment I had dreamed of my whole life. It is a memory that will stay with me forever :) We have gotten an incredible amount of compliments about our ceremony music & I have been pointing everyone in Kelly & Damiens direction. I can never thank Kelly & Damien enough for the magic they provided on our day. We will be forever grateful & you will always hold a special place in our memories of our Wedding day :) Thank you a million times, Dearbháil & Shane Anderson

I can’t recommend Kelly and Damien highly enough, they’re both so easy going and professional. We barely gave them any direction, just told them what kind of evening we wanted and they took it from there, it was just perfect. Our guests loved their set and raved about Kelly’s gorgeous voice. You can’t go wrong booking this lovely couple.

We feel truly blessed to have found Kelly and Damien, who played at the ceremony and drinks reception of our wedding a few weeks ago. From the moment I initially made contact with Kelly, I found her to be so warm and helpful. This continued in the run up to our wedding and I was so impressed with how helpful and supportive Kelly was. Any query re hymns, song choices etc were quickly answered. Kelly helped me pick beautiful pieces of music for the church and so many people mentioned how gorgeous the music was. We also opted to have Something Blue Acoustics play our drinks reception in the hotel and the music created a lovely relaxing atmosphere for all our guests. I would recommend Something Blue Acoustics to all couples.

It was an absolute pleasure having Kelly and Damien play at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception at Kilshane House. They made the planning process very easy and were very responsive to queries. The music they performed during our ceremony and drinks reception truly exceeded our expectations. Kelly's stunning vocals combined with Damien's skillfulness with the guitar really made our ceremony so special and created such a beautiful, uplifting atmosphere during the drinks reception. Guests were raving about how good the music was, along with how amazing Kelly's voice was! We highly recommend having Something Blue Acoustics as they made our day that extra bit special!

It was such a pleasure to have Damien and Kelly perform at our wedding. Their catalogue is superb, and they were also kind enough to learn an extra song or two for the ceremony, for a more personal touch - which we really appreciated. Damien is a wonderful guitarist, and Kelly’s vocals are beautiful. Our friends and family are still raving about the set they performed at the reception. They were everything we’d hoped for and more - you will not find a better group of wedding musicians. A fabulous duo.

Kelly and Damien played at our wedding in July 2019. They were absolutely superb and I can’t recommend them highly enough. They played a number of songs during our ceremony that we picked out, needless to say they played them perfectly, put their own spin on them and really set the mood for us and our guests. We then had them play during our drinks reception, their song list was amazing and our guests couldn’t stop talking about how good they were. If we could have had them play all day we would have. They were professional, checked in with us regularly leading up to the wedding and so easy to work with. Kelly and Damien, thank you again for playing a big part in our perfect day.

Kelly & Damien were an absolute pleasure to deal with for our Wedding, both on the lead up helping us with music selection and on the day itself. They did both the music at the church and then afterwards at our drinks reception, both of which was absolutely flawless. Our guests raved about the music, in particular their version of BellX1's 'Eve is the apple of my eye' at the church. I couldn't recommend Something Blue Acoustic highly enough and we are absolutely delighted with our decision to have them play at our wedding. Thanks again for everything Kelly and Damien.

As soon as we came across Something Blue Acoustics online we knew we'd found the right music for our wedding ceremony. We loved their sound and the choice of songs on their set list. The music on the day was even better than we expected and it made our ceremony so special. We got so much good feedback about the ceremony music, with lots of our guests commenting on Kelly's beautiful and unusual voice. Kelly was very good at helping us plan our ceremony and always quick to respond to our emails. Couldn't recommend more!

I don't know how I found Something Blue Acoustics, but I'm guessing someone was looking down on me that day and I'm so glad I did. Kelly and Damien were absolutely amazing on our wedding day. They played at Dublin City Hall and during our drinks reception at the Stags Head and our guests could not stop commenting on how good they were. My dad was very sick last year and we knew he wouldn't make the wedding. I told Kelly this and her and Damien recorded the song I would walk down the aisle to so he got to hear it. Kelly responded almost immediately to the many emails I sent, and despite not having a chance to meet them before our wedding day, I had 100% faith that they would do an amazing job, and I wasn't wrong. Thank you so much. You helped make our day absolutely perfect. If you're thinking of booking Something Blue for your wedding day, you should.

Kelly and Damien what can we say!! Kelly what a voice she sent shivers down my spine and Damien played wonderful on the guitar!! He did 2 of our fav songs wherever you will go and landslide to perfection!! Together they work so well and honestly they made the church ceremony for us as the music was a very important part for us!! Kelly was so responsive and so so helpful throughout the whole organizing of it even for parts that she didn’t need to help us with as we were torn between songs for our entrance to reception and first dance she helped us map it all out!! The only part I wish we could have done was listen to them for our reception drinks as we had photos to take but everybody was very impressed! They are such a gorgeous couple I would 100% recommend them for your wedding. We have even asked for them to do a USB of recordings of what they sung that day so we can relive it all over again. We will definitely go see them play in Waterford again!

Kelly and Damien of Something Blue Acoustics are something more than special. Their energy and love for what they do shines through the whole experience. From the moment I contacted Kelly she was amazing, helping with suggestions and making sure the flow of the ceremony was just right with the music we were deciding on. I can still hear Kelly's voice begin to sing as I prepared to walk up the isle. What a moment, their music will be part of our day always and made the ceremony so special and personal. All our guests raved about how beautiful Kelly's voice is and they loved that they stayed and played for our drinks reception. The music and song floated on the sea air mixed with laughter and the clink of glasses. If you have the opportunity book these 2, they are fabulous, the songs they sang will always remind us of the wonderful memories we have of our day in the Haven in Dunmore. Love Always Sonia & Jim

A massive thanks to Something Blue Acoustic for the music they played firstly in the church and then onto the drinks reception. Every note was amazing. I would have lovely to have just sat in the bar and listened to them for the day. Even tho we didnt want any special requests of song choices, Kelly was also saying that what ever song we wanted they can learn and can preform it for us. I will end by saying just listen to some of there songs on soundcloud and you'll understand what I'm talking about. They as as Duo, Kelly and Damien are outstanding. Just book them.

From the moment we came across Something Blues Soundcloud page we knew they were exactly what we were looking for on our wedding day. Kelly's level of professionalism knows no bounds, not only was her communication exceptional, but she was also only too willing to lend advice on what songs would work during particular parts of the ceremony. Aside from this, nothing was an effort for the guys, responses to emails were almost instantaneous and they had no issue with working on a playlist that was to our preference, even a song or two that wasn't on the playlist. We were fortunate enough to have them play both during our ceremony and drinks reception and they created the perfect atmosphere for our NYE wedding, our guests were blown away by just how great they were. If you happen to be reading this in contemplation of booking Something Blue, then I would suggest you book without hesitation! Thank you both so much for sharing in our Wedding Day. All the best!

We are so happy that we booked Something Blue Acoustics for our Humanist ceremony @ Faithlegg. Kelly was so friendly and super responsive from the moment I contacted them. They have a fantastic song list to choose from and they are happy to learn new material if you really wanted a song that wasn't on their list. Kelly really helps to ensure that the ceremony reflects you and your partner and she also helps with the song layout for the ceremony itself - very handy when you're not quiet sure where instrumental pieces can be played etc. Kelly & Damien also played for our drinks receptions and so many of our guests commented on how great they were!

We are so glad we booked Kelly & Damien for our civil ceremony music! They really were just amazing! Kelly kindly advised how a civil ceremony is laid out in terms of music and how many songs to fit in and when which helped us immensely! On the day the celebrant skipped over where we had a song which meant one of our songs were left out and I have just received an email from kelly to say they were going to put our songs on a USB so that we can listen to all the songs we had picked! There isn’t many people who would do that after the ceremony! Thank you Kelly & Damien!

WOW! That's the first word that springs to mind when I think of Kelly and Damien and Something Blue Acoustic. Having SBA play at our wedding a few weeks back was the best decision myself and my now husband made during our wedding planning. Kelly was super friendly and accommodating and responsive throughout the planning phase and was open to all of our ideas! She even learned Songbird as Gaeilge for me as my entrance song to the church! Go raibh mile maith agat as sin Kelly! From the first note of Songbird to the last song Kelly and Damien performed at our drinks reception they were just absolutely amazing! Kelly's voice would actually melt you and Damien's skills on the guitar are unreal! They are the perfect duo! Our guests were absolutely raving about SBA all day and night and some of them said the Kelly's version of Eve the Apple of my Eye by Bell X1 was the best version they have ever heard! One of those guest being a wedding singer herself! If you are thinking of booking Something Blue Acoustics...don't think any longer...they are the best! What more could you ask for...incredibly talented musicians and wonderful humans too!! Without a doubt the best decision we ever made!! Thanks so much Kelly and Damien...same time again next year ya??? :P

Kelly and Damien were fantastic and contributed greatly to our day. Kelly's emails were informative, displayed a strong sense of excitement to perform and reassured us at every interaction that we had made the right choice. When it came to selecting songs for our ceremony they were very accommodating and guided us where required. On the day they waited patiently in the rain as it looked like an outdoor ceremony was the wrong call but as the rain cleared we couldn't have impressed our guests more with the musical ability of these two. The drinks reception set list was great and we were very appreciative of Kelly allowing us the use of her mic for ceremony readings and a speech. Cannot recommend Something Blue highly enough, they were excellent.

What can I say about Kelly and Damien? They were absolutely amazing. We had an outdoor ceremony in an amazing location on one of the hottest days of the year and hearing Kelly singing "yours" by Ella Henderson, (which she learned especially) just made the moment totally magical as I walked up the aisle. Damien played an instrumental of Fleetwood Mac's landline during the ceremony and it was just so beautiful. The music during our ceremony and drinks reception was truly exceptional. Kelly and Damien also went to the trouble of sourcing an additional PA system for our celebrant and nothing was too much trouble. They were fantastic to deal with and I would highly recommend to any brides and grooms!! Wish I could go back and listen to them again!!!

5 STARS ACROSS THE BOARD!! We booked something blue acoustics based on the online reviews, we were looking for something a little more relaxed for our wedding music. From our initially emails with Kelly, to the help we were given picking songs, the goosebumps i got when walking up the aisle to Sweet 16 (which they learned for the day no problem) to the last song we danced back down the aisle to 'Happy Together,; These guys have been nothing short of perfection!!! I was so happy to have been able to have a quick few words with Kelly on the day and we will be raving about ye for a long time to come. All our love, Stacey and Eoin xxx

Keith and Siobhan, having just had our wedding in May at Waterford Castle, and what a fabulous day it was. After our evening meal Something Blue Acoustics set up in the Leinster room for an 8-10 performance. Starting with our first dance, by Elbow, which was superbly done, and until the end they had everyone up on their feet dancing or clapping along. Damien's exceptional guitar playing and Kelly's beautiful vocals filled the room and we danced our hearts out. All the guests commented on how enjoyable they were to listen and dance to, ageing from 20yrs to over 70yrs this was very pleasing to us. SBA seemed to really enjoy themselves too and everyone clapped vigorously after each song. Siobhan and I would highly recommend the talented Damien and Kelly for their ability to perform such a variety of songs so professionally. Made our day!

Couldn't recommend these guys enough! Very professional and always on hand to answer any questions we had. Kelly learned a new song for my bride to enter the church to and there wasn't a dry eye in the church, including my own! She even sent on a sample recording a day or two beforehand. They rocked the drinks reception too with more upbeat tunes. Kelly's voice is beautiful and Damien knows his way around a guitar. Book these guys, you won't regret it.

Something Blue Acoustics sang at our wedding ceremony and our drinks reception and can only be described as FABULOUS! Everyone was raving about Kelly's beautiful voice and they really added to our ceremony. My only regret is that we didn't get to enjoy them at the drinks reception as photo duty kept us away but going by everyone else's reaction, they went down brilliantly and people loved their sound. I had lots of emails to Kelly in the lead-up to the day itself about song choices and she always responded straight-away with a friendly, helpful attitude! And they even performed two songs that we requested not in their original set list! So please do yourself a favour a book this wonderful duo for your big day, you will not be disappointed

We had the pleasure of having Kelly & Damien play and sing for our wedding ceremony recently and we are so happy we choose them, they were so amazing from the very first moment I emailed them with quick responses and nothing ever been any trouble, so flexible with songs and great song suggestions and keen to learn new songs for us, it made our wedding music planning so relaxed and I was so confident I knew I had nothing to worry about planning our wedding from Australia and just could not wait to hear them sing at the church! They were so friendly and beautiful on the day also and just so happy for us! I cannot recommend Kelly & Damien highly enough, our guests all commented on them afterwards and how beautiful they sounded and performed, it made us so happy and it was so personal for us! Music at your wedding is so important and would recommend any couples looking to look no further you will not be disappointed I can promise you that! Thank you so much Kelly & Damien I just wish we could do it all again so we could have you sing and play for us all over again, We wish you both all the best in your future and hope we get to meet you again! xxx

Kelly and Damien from Something Blue Acoustics are an absolute pleasure to deal with. Their quirky, mellow, chilled out vibe was exactly what we wanted for our wedding BBQ. Kelly was a dream to deal with and always responded to any emails & messages promptly. They were very open to learning songs and even played our favourite Prince song - which isn't necessarily a wedding song! We can not recommend them enough and they really played a massive part in making our day so special. All our guests complimented them and everyone seemed to enjoy their music as much as we did. Thank you both so much. We really hope we see you both again soon.

I cannot rate Something Blue highly enough, what incredible musicians and wonderful people. From my first email to Kelly I know I had found the perfect people to perform at our wedding ceremony, she was so lovely and friendly that I felt totally at ease with a big decision, as music was one of our main priorities for the day. We had multiple email consults as I kept thinking of new songs to include in the ceremony. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Kelly and Damien, even when we asked them to learn several new songs and to create a mash up of two very different songs for my entrance! So many of our guests commented on how wonderful the music was, how beautiful Kelly's voice was, and how unique the song interpretations were. I cannot recommend these two highly enough and feel so lucky that they were part of our wedding! They were both so lovely on the day too, congratulating us with hugs and smiles. Absolutely wonderful thank you!!

If I was doing my wedding over the first thing I would do is book Kelly and Damien! They played a 2 hour set for our summer bbq wedding and were perfect from start to finish. Kellys voice is absolutely beautiful and loads of our guests commented on the music. From the first time I emailed Kelly I felt as if I was texting a friend. She was so helpful and nothing was ever a problem, which made a huge difference to my stress levels!! They were incredibly reasonable compared to some of the quotes we got but I honestly would have paid double for the performance and service we received. Thank you both so so much!

One of the best choices we ever made for our wedding was to book Kelly and Damien from Something Blue Acoustics. From the second myself and my new hubby heard them we knew they we're perfect for us. We really loved their mellow relaxed vibes as well as their extensive song repertoire. They have a brillant mix of everything and anything going. I particulary loved their traditional Irish songs. Lots of my guests have commented since on how amazing Kelly's vocals were for the song "She moved through the fair". Kelly was so understanding, creative, easy going and absolutely amazing to deal with. She even put me at ease and helped me build up the confidence to sing two songs at the cermony myself. My only regret is not getting to spend much time listening to them at the drinks reception due to getting photos. My guests told me they were fab. I would highly reccomend Something Blue Acoustics to anyone. They really helped make our day perfect. Thanks again guys xxx

Not only were we lucky with the weather for our ceremony in Castle Leslie, but also the performers we chose for that magical day - Something Blue. Kelly and Damien gave such marvellous renditions of the songs we had picked out, setting the tone for a day that proved to be everything we had wished for. They were so professional on the lead up to our wedding, prompt in response and accommodating with our musical choices - some of which, we'd say, were not the easiest to perform. We could not recommend them enough. Thank you Kelly and Damien.

I had Damien & Kelly for our wedding 2 weeks ago and they were absolutely fantastic! Everyone commented on how good they were and asked about them! They traveled from Waterford to Mulranny in Mayo for our wedding (which is a massive drive) but we couldn't find another group that suited our musical taste as well. They performed in both the church and the drinks reception (across the road). Also, Kelly spotted a big typo in my mass booklet which two priests didn't notice so that was very helpful! I would definitely recommend them as they really made the mass very personnel for us.

Like all the previous reviewers, we could not recommend Kelly and Damien highly enough. If we are to be honest, the ceremony and reception music was not something we gave a huge amount of thought to (relative to other elements of the wedding) and we only happened across Something Blue Acoustics close enough to the date itself. How lucky we were - Kelly and Damien added massively to the whole occasion. They were just spot on really: mellow but entertaining, memorable but not mushy and a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Our guests - and ourselves - loved them and we just hope now that some of our friends choose to get them on board for a future wedding we'll be at so we have the opportunity to enjoy their music once more.

We've had so many compliments from our guests on the music and it set the tone for the day, I cannot recommend them highly enough. Kelly has a beautiful voice and an equally beautiful manner in how she speaks with you during planning and with her presence on the day.

All of our guests commented on how wonderful they were and how Kelly's wonderful voice mixed with Damien's guitar was perfect for the ceremony and kept our guests singing and joining in during the drinks reception.

The ceremony at my wedding was my absolute favorite part of the day and I loved having the time to sit quietly and listed to this gorgeous music. I couldn't recommend this duet highly enough. My only regret after the ceremony was that I didn't get more time to enjoy their beautiful music during our champagne reception as I was running about getting photos taken and greeting guests - I however heard countless reports from guests of how fantastic they were.

When we were looking for musicians for our wedding ceremony, a friend put us in touch with Kelly and Damien, and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. From our initial contact, Kelly was really helpful and was always very quick to respond to our emails. She gave plenty of advice on which songs worked best for different parts of the ceremony especially when we were struggling to come up with a suitable hymn for the psalm. The music on the day was fantastic - Kelly has a beautiful voice and it really works well alongside her husband Damien on the guitar. We received many compliments afterwards from our guests and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Something Blue to other couples for their wedding day.

From the very first contact right through to the end, we never had a single doubt in our minds that we had chosen well. We hadn't given the music any consideration until one night in late January. From the very first contact, Kelly was so reassuring and instantly made us feel at ease. On the day, Kelly and Damien's passion came through in abundance, and the number of compliments we received from guests was inspiring; simply everyone loved them. Their performance of our entrance song brought tears to many eyes. Afterwards, in the bar, they continued to impress our guests with their melodic tones and their own special takes on some great classics. Their repetoire is so extensive, they managed to find something that suited guests of all ages. For anyone looking for music for their wedding, we have no hesitation in recommending Something Blue Acoustics. So many people are telling us that our wedding was the best they have ever attended, and we have absolutely no doubt in our minds that the music played a huge part in that. Thanks so much guys for helping to make the day all the more special with your beautiful sounds :-) xxx

For a moment my partner and I stood outside the ceremony room and listened to the first joyous chords of our song. Then he took my hand and we started to walk, with our hearts feeling full to bursting... So began the soundtrack to the most wonderful, emotional and romantic day! We were so so lucky to have found Kelly and Damien. Kelly's gorgeous voice and Damien's mellifluous guitar combine to make the most beautiful music. And they are just the loveliest people too. Kelly made the planning part so easy and fun, with great guidance to help everything flow smoothly. I wanted something a little bit retro, with a little bit of a modern vibe as well, and Something Blue Acoustics was the perfect fit. They crafted the most personal and unique sound for us, happily adding some of our favourite songs to their impressive repertoire. Lots of people asked about if the couple were friends of ours, I think it was because they put so much love into their music it sounds personal. These two clearly love what they do, and their passion comes across. Spellbinding, we loved every minute. Thank you!

Thank you to both Kelly and Damian for their contribution on our wedding day. From the moment we first spoke with them they were very open, easy going and accommodating. On the day itself they were both very relaxed, friendly and played their songs with such passion and conviction. All of our guests really enjoyed their music and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Thank you guys!

We are delighted that we were lucky enough to book Kelly and Damien for our big day. In the lead up to the day, Kelly and Damien were hugely helpful with song selection, and giving us advice on how best to fit the music into the ceremony. Although we had a couple of unusual song selections, Kelly and Damien were more than happy to oblige, and performed them beautifully. Definitely a five star review and would absolutely recommend Something Blue Acoustics to anyone.

I researched high and low for a wedding acoustic duo as I wanted our wedding to be quite relaxed. I came across Something Blue on a random search. I listened to their audio video's on the their website and contacted Kelly. From the first initial contact I knew they were the ones that will help me walk up the aisle to one of our favourite songs. The ceremony was a joy and we also asked Damien and Kelly to sing at our reception drinks. Kelly has a beautiful voice and sings a lot of old classics. Our guests have complimented on how amazing they were and loved the music. Kelly will literally help you with anything and guide you through the music for the ceremony. As we live away from home we haven't attended too many weddings so she made the whole process so easy and enjoyable for us. On behalf of myself and my husband we would highly recommend Damien and Kelly. Honestly just book them, you will not be disappointed! Thank you so much guys :)

Something Blue Acoustics - just amazing! I could listen to them all day long... I'm so delighted that I booked Kelly and Damien for our big day... From the first email I sent, they were so quick to respond and professional to deal with. I asked for specific songs and were very obliging to sing them for us.

Something Blue Acoustics are an amazing duo, Kelly has such a unique tone to her voice and makes for very easy listening. They really added to the atmosphere in the church and enhanced the day entirely. We were so impressed with their extensive song catalogue we booked them for the drinks reception too. Kelly was lovely to deal with and was so friendly and warm. We had friends sing as part of the church and Kelly and Damien were brilliant working with them. We were delighted to have them play for us and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them. Thanks again and best wishes to you both x

I can't recommend Kelly and Damien highly enough. Any questions I had were always answered quickly and they were a great help to a very indecisive bride. They were wonderful to work with and on the day they were there early and set up ready to go with no fuss. Everyone on the day was full of praise for them and their beautiful sound and professionalism, from the guests to the venue organiser (it was a civil ceremony). A month later we are still hearing from guests about how they were one of the highlights of the day. If you choose to go with Something Blue Acoustic you won't be disappointed as the will add a wonderful, intimate and warm element to your special day.

We were very fortunate to have Kelly and Damian play at our wedding recently in Tipperary. I originally found them through the weddingsonline website, and went to view them at another wedding where I was blown away by not just their musical talents, but the different song options they had which was extremely important to us! On the day of our wedding, they played and sang beautifully and more than one guest commented to us on the day how amazing they had found the music. My husband has a little soft spot for rock music, and was more than impressed with the gorgeous version of Metallica's Nothing Else Matters that Damian played - even our priest liked it! They lifted our entire wedding ceremony with their music and we are so grateful to them! Fiona and Shane, 27th February 2016

Damien and Kelly are excellent at what they do and we cannot recommend them enough. They were so helpful to deal with and lovely to have around on the day. They learned off a number of songs for us that were not on the original playlist. We recieved nothing but compliments about their music on the day.

We were delighted to have Kelly and Damien as part of our wedding ceremony. Kelly was a dream to work with in regards to song choice and flexibility, they were our Something Blue in regards to something old, something new, something borrowed, something Blue. A fantastic couple and great entainers. I would highly recommend them to any future bride, distance is no object to them as they travelled to Cavan for us.

Kelly & Damien were just super from start to finish! We had a few initial phone calls just to talk about our ceremony & what we wanted & from the get go my mind was totally at ease that they would do a great job. On the eve & day of our wedding there was a hurricane (remember Desmond?!?) so they left at 6.30am to make sure they would definitely make it for our 2pm wedding in Donegal, serious dedication! Kelly's voice moved both my husband & I to tears, it's so beautiful & many of our guests on the day & subsequently commented on how lovely the music was. Kelly & Damien even took the time to learn two songs that are particularly special to us & sung them during our ceremony. Kelly & Damien were so warm friendly & professional, an absolute pleasure to work with & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, I couldn't have asked for better.

We would highly recommend Kelly and Damien of Something Blue Acoustics.. they were absolutely fantastic at our wedding. From the start, Kelly was a pleasure to deal with .. so friendly and bubbly, quick to respond to any emails or suggestions, she gave great advice on different songs and was really enthusiastic about learning all of the new songs that we requested. Kelly has a gorgeous and unique voice that works so well with such a range of songs making Something Blue the perfect choice for us. To show how dedicated they were, Kelly and Damien also waded through floods to get to and from the church and then performed while watching the floodwaters continue to rise! Thanks a million guys for helping to make it a fantastic day!

There are no words that can do Kelly and Damien justice. Their talent and professionalism knows no bounds. From the very first email with Kelly we knew they where right for our day. Nothing was to much trouble, between song suggestions and taking on new songs to learn they where happy to do it. We cannot recommend Something Blue Acoustics any higher. Thank you both for being part of our special day. You guys set a new standard for ceremony music.

We were absolutely delighted with Something Blue Acoustics!!! We feel so blessed to have found this amazingly talented musical duo. Firstly, they sound fantastic! Damien is an incredibly skilled guitarist and Kelly's voice is just so pure and beautiful and unique. My husband is a musician and, honestly, he has very high expectations re: live music. (as anyone should when hiring such important vendors for such a special event) My expectations were high too and Something Blue met them and succeeded them. So they have talent which is the main thing you are looking for...but an added bonus while planning such a special happy event is that Kelly & Damien are also two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They were easy to interact with and prompt with responses. They showed up with big smiles on the day of our wedding and were extremely professional. Our guests (and us!) are still talking about how much they loved Something Blue. We asked Damien to provide acoustic guitar for our ceremony (so dreamy!) and then had Kelly sing while Damien played for our cocktail reception. This all took place outdoors on the grounds of Trudder Lodge and it sounded so beautiful. Later on, after dinner, Kelly and Damien stuck around to perform our first song so my husband and I could have our first dance under a beautiful tree in the back garden. We could not be more pleased with Something Blue. I highly encourage you to hire will be very happy you did!

We would definitely recommend Something Blue Acoustics - Kelly and Damien were excellent and so easy to work with. Damien is a great guitarist and Kelly's voice is fab. We had listened to them online and were impressed but they were even better live in the Church. A number of the guests commented on the great music and from a not very musical family...believe me this was high praise, they usually wouldn't even notice!!! We found Kelly and Damien very helpful with song ideas and suggestions for what would work for different parts of the ceremony. We wish you both every success in the future and encourage people to have a listen and book. Thank you for being part of our day.

Super helpful with selecting music and giving ideas for a religious ceremony, helping with song placement and suggestions. Took on a new song and performed it beautifully. Very easy to deal with and kept the whole process stress free, really accommodating to requests.
