Spring Break, Europe’s premier good-time supergroup, are a six-piece act that play the most exciting US floor-fillers of the 1980s. Based in Dublin, and formed out of repeated encounters at the after parties of showbusiness events, this group have performed thousands of shows throughout the country and abroad since they set out in 2005.

Having played at hundreds of weddings, big and small, in more than 100 different venues including castles, hotels, marquees, restaurants, clubs, houses, barns and back gardens, Spring Break are prepared for any crowd in any setting. Their travels have taken them to every county in Ireland, all over Europe, to the Middle East, and also to Asia.

In 2017 Spring Break made international news when, having played at the 40th birthday party of Michael Fassbender, the actor took the time to discuss the “excellent” band with Jimmy Fallon on NBC’s Tonight Show. Proof, if it were needed, that this group are the best friend a good time ever had!

The perfect act for festival settings, Spring Break played 4 sets across the Electric Picnics of 2014 and 2017, in addition to shows at the 2015 and 2017 Groove Festival. Ever-presents at events like Taste of Dublin and the Rainbow Run, they have also twice headlined the Castlepalooza Festival and were part of the lineup for the inaugural Arthur’s Day. And to their delight, 2018 will see the band perform at more outdoor festival events than ever before.

Spring Break have also regularly played corporate shows for some of the largest companies and organisations both here and throughout the world. Namely: Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Yahoo, Diageo, eBay, Vodafone, O2, Aldi, Pfizer, GSK, Nestle, Betdaq, Paddy Power, the IFTAs, RTE2, TV3, RTE Radio 1, 2FM, Phantom FM, Today FM, Newstalk FM, 98 FM, Spin FM, Irish Times, Irish Mirror, Airtricity, ESB, Eircom, Eirgrid, IRFU, Dublin GAA, Davy, PWC, KPMG, AIB, Bank of Ireland, the Central Bank of Ireland, and Accenture.

Known for bringing a light, humourous touch to live broadcasts, Spring Break have appeared on Irish radio numerous times in recent years. The band have chatted and performed live on shows hosted by Ryan Tubridy, Jenny Greene & Nicky Byrne, Tony Fenton, Tom Dunne, Rick O’Shea, Sean Moncrieff, Ray Foley, Bobby Kerr, John Murray, Joe Donnelly, and Michelle Doherty across RTE Radio 1, 2FM, Today FM, Newstalk FM, and Phantom/TXFM.

In addition to entertaining at parties, weddings and private events, Spring Break have also found the time to take their inimitable show public too. Over the years the band have performed over 30 sold out nights across Dublin’s Vicar St, Tripod, and Button Factory venues, as well as 15 sold out nights in the Belfast Empire.

With a firm reputation as the top party band in Ireland and beyond, Spring Break’s wealth of experience in live entertainment is now as vital a component of their show as the musical flair, work ethic, and eye for detail that made them so successful in the first place. This band really are the only show in town!

Absolutely unreal! Slightly more expensive than the average wedding band but above and beyond the quality. The dance floor was full from the first minute they came on until the last, so different from all the run of the mill wedding bands. Will pay to see their next gig, cannot recommend them more

We had Springbreak for our wedding and they were fantastic. The dance floor was full all night. And even those who weren’t a fan of the 80s were up and dancing. They interacted well with the crowd, and we had a ball!

My Husband and I booked these guys without seeing them and they were AMAZING. The floor was full all night and people had such fun. We had seen several bands but having booked from abroad we were worried it might not be to everyone's taste or too much but it was just fantastic. Thanks Dan and the team it was brilliant!

We booked Spring break for our wedding in Cabra Castle after seeing them perform at various gigs and being so impressed. And it was the best decision we made!! From dealing with Andrew to book the guys, who was always so efficient in getting back to me and answering ALL of our questions :) to the moment they took to the stage, they created an electric energy in the room. There wasn't a bum left on a seat from my eldest guest to my 2yr old Godchild, they were all dancing up a storm. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to book a Super Fun 80's theme band for a wedding/party. They really made our night and even let me sing with the band at one stage! Every song they played was better then the one before and was just the greatest night we could have wished for. Delighted we were lucky enough to book them for our special day!!

If I could put 10 out of 10 I would. Amazing doesn't describe these guys. When planning our wedding we had 1 request and that was Springbreak. We never saw them live, we just heard great things. We booked Springbreak before we even booked our venue so a lot was hanging in the balance. The band was the thing everybody remembered. There was people up dancing of all ages and throughout the night. If you are worried about people getting up and having a great time at your wedding, then you simply have to book Springbreak. They are the best by far and you will not be disappointed.

We knew from day one who we wanted to play at our wedding. All our guests loved Spring Break and as usual, so did we! No hitches, no problems - great night of entertainment
Review by
Although I wanted Spring Break for my wedding, I was slightly apprehensive due to a lot of the guests not being major eighties fans. I decided to indulge as it was my day and I couldn't have been happier with the result. From the moment they started they had the dance floor full for the night. Everybody was up bopping. These guys are fantastic entertainers and put on a show everyone from 8 to 80 will enjoy. My big day was proof of this.

don't think just book, a great band makes a great wedding. once booked you won't have to give the music aspect of the wedding a second thought. Spring Break will have your dance floor full from first song to last. They're worth every penny, my guests still talk about the music.

Brilliant to deal with from the word go. Everyone loved them and still goes on about them. If you book them you won't be disappointed

We got SB to play at our wedding in 2013. Unbelievable band with great character. They bring a uniqueness to the night. Children have got in the way of seeing them live since!!!

Springbreak were amazing! I had been to some of their gigs before I booked them. The best thing was that they appealed to a variety of ages so the dance floor was full the whole time. More expensive than the average wedding band but worth every penny for the atmosphere they create.

Springbreak did our wedding in a Cork on 1 aug and they were FANTASTIC. the dance floor was filled from the first song and we are still getting feedback from all if our guests on how good the band were. Thank you for making our night so memorable! I hope someone I know books you so we get to enjoy you again!!

We can't recommend this band enough!!! We had been to see them play gigs around Dublin for the past few years and they were spectacular at our wedding almost 3 weeks ago! EVERYBODY danced their socks off for the whole night and every song was a floor-filler!! We were delighted that we decided to go with the gang and they are so easy to get in touch with. We were making most of the arrangements from abroad and they were very quick to get back to us with any questions we had via email. We would strongly encourage any prospective bride and groom to check them out at their next gig and book them ASAP! We had the time of our lives that night and Spring Break we're definitely part of the reason why.

Just back from honeymoon and wanted to send on a quick note of thanks – the music on the night was cracking – memories are blurred at this point but I’m pretty sure that the dance floor was packed all night long thanks to you guys. I can’t say I’m surprised though, I have to admit that from the moment I booked I didn’t give a second thought to what the music would be like because I was just so confident that ye would be fantastic and you didn’t disappoint, every guest without fail has commented on how great the music was on the night and I totally agree

A massive thank you to yourself and the rest of the lads, from myself and Catriona on an epic show on Friday. The whole thing was brilliant. Can’t remember the amount of people who came up to me, saying, you were the best band they’ve ever seen playing a wedding. Thank you so much for making the day all the more memorable, and I look forward to see you play again next month.

Thanks to you and the rest of the band for a fantastic night on Monday, honest to god, every single one of our guests have been talking about how great the band were--my friend, Rob, said you guys should come with a health warning, he almost danced himself to death. You put on an amazing show, I think the video man hung around and got a good bit of your set, I hope he got plenty of footage. I was a little worried that the lights coming on for refreshments would put people off dancing, but you were absolutely right, a little tea and coffee couldn't stop Spring Break, you crowned the best day of our lives! We're going to come along to see you in the Empire in Belfast when we get back from our honeymoon, we just can't seem to get enough... Take care and thanks so much again

I have to add to my aunt's comments above :) As you can tell, Spring Break were a BIG hit at our wedding in Seafield in March. I cannot recommend you highly enough and I know you're probably sick hearing this but our guests really haven't stopped raving about you. Now a big gang of us are heading up to Belfast to see you at the Empire in July and I cannot wait to dance 'all night long' again!

Dee & I just returned from Honeymoon but we wanted to get in touch to say thanks so much for an amazing performance in the K Club. Everyone has been raving about it, the dance floor was jammed all night and I personally think it was one of the best shows I’ve seen you guys do over the last few years, tho I’m obviously biased! I have no doubt there will be some bookings coming your way in the near future from some of our guests but in the meantime thanks again and look forward to seeing another show soon!

Thanks so much for an absolutely fantastic performance. We were really nervous as we'd a lot of older family members and a lot of our friends have kicked their dancing shoes due to either newborns or impending arrivals so we were delighted to have a full floor all night. I thought it would be a tough crowd and I know it's not the easiest of venues for the dancing! You were my absolutely favourite part of the night and the only time I completely relaxed all day. We were both delighted. Thanks so much for making our night.
