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!

I first saw Spring Break perform over 9 years ago at an event. Since then, myself and my partner have been to every one of their public Xmas & St Patricks day shows. We always wanted them for our wedding and were absolutely delighted they were available. I always joked that the only reason I was getting married is so I could book Spring Break! (not far from the truth :D )

To say they were incredible is putting it mildly. From the moment they began to the very last song, the dance floor was PACKED. Everyone had the time of their lives and all ages were up dancing to the mix of 70s/80s/90s and 2000s!!! Not only do they sound great...but their sense of fun and showmanship shines through... from their gags between songs, their costumes, set up etc..

They had a DJ on afterwards too which was great!

All in all, if you're looking for a wedding band... these guys are "simply the best"

I have been a fan of Springbreak for a while and couldn?t believe our luck that they were available for our wedding. They certainly didn?t disappoint. From the outset they were professional and lovely to deal with. Dance floor was full all night with guests of all ages and they were all anyone could talk about the next day! If you?re thinking of booking this band, don?t hesitate?. They are worth every single cent!

I have been to a good few weddings, so when I started planning my own I knew I wanted a band that was fun and would get the crowd going. I have seen bands that were brilliant but the dance floor would be empty because they didn?t interact with the crowd. And Springbreak were exactly what I wanted. From the second they got there, they had the crowd going. They involved myself and my husband so much and kept calling us up and I honestly had so much fun. I found the morning stressful, and as soon as the band came on I was able to unwind and relax. I have had several messages asking me the name of the band from people who want to book them, and people who are recommending them to their own family for weddings. I have absolutely no regrets with my choice and would highly highly recommend them. If you want to have great craic, while dancing to absolute bangers, this is your band! Thanks so much for making our day all that it was ????

Springbreak are amazing!! We had seen them twice before our wedding so I knew that we had to secure them for our wedding day. We wanted a lively band with a party atmosphere and this is exactly what Springbreak delivered. We bought loads of extra 80's gear / wigs / glow sticks / inflatables to add to the party atmosphere. The music was brilliant and they really got the crowd going - the lead singer spent most of the time in the middle of the dance floor getting the crowd going. My son and his friends (17 - 18 years of age) were at our wedding and they loved Springbreak - they literally never got off the dance floor. The most common piece of feedback on our wedding was how brilliant the band was - we passed on their name to lots of people. If you want a fun, energetic wedding band - this is THE band to book. Thanks guys for a fabulous night!!

We booked Spring Break for our wedding and couldn't recommend them highly enough. We wanted our wedding to be a big party with our nearest and dearest and that is just what they created. They had the dance floor filled all night and kept the music flowing. There was so interactive and entertaining! Delighted that we had them part of our fantastic day!

Spring Break were absolutely phenomenal at our Wedding- worth every penny. I was a little concerned before that we decided not to spend money on other entertainment eg games, photobooths etc but there was absolutely no need - everyone was on the dance floor all night! I had seen Spring Break before and they are always amazing but at a venue with a big dance floor like Castleknock hotel they were next level! DJ was also fantastic. Thanks so much Dan and team

We had Spring Break play at our wedding in Cavan on the 18th August and they were worth every penny. They kept the dance floor full the whole night between the band and DJ afterwards and were great to deal with. They put on a great show and hopefully we'll get to see them again down the line.

Springbreak are amazing! I can honestly say that I never danced as much in my life. The dance floor was full all night. They are brilliant performers and musicians. All of our guests absolutely loved them. They are great for crowd interaction and kept everyone entertained. They were very pleasant to deal with and accommodated our song requests. They were a highlight of our day and I couldn't recommend them enough. Book them if you can!

We had Spring Break for our wedding at Luttrellstown Castle in October and they were absolutely incredible. The dance floor was filled from the first song to the very last and we had so many comments from our guests after about how much they loved them. If you?re looking for a wedding band, look no further! These guys absolutely made the night for us and we will be forever grateful!

We recently got married in Mount Juliet Estate and had Springbreak as the second of two bands. We couldn?t have been happier with them. They are not a typical wedding band; very interactive and will have everybody on the dance floor. They set up very quickly and played even later than expected.

My husband was so impressed with Springbreak when he saw them years ago (before we ever met!) that he told himself that they would be his wedding band if he ever got married. As my husband is no slouch in the musical department (I'm with the drummer!) or otherwise, I trusted his judgement and thankfully, due to a cancellation, Springbreak was available for our wedding night. Not only did they make the night (our guests of all generations keep telling us how much they enjoyed them), they were also unbelievably sound - compensating for our venue's shortcomings by providing us with a microphone for our speeches (yes, even that basic was missing from our venue) and playing the full set (even though the venue couldn't sort out issues with their own PA, which delayed Springbreak getting started for a good 40 minutes). They even went with the flow when the venue told us at very short notice that Springbreak would need to set up a good 7 hours before they were due to play - while they charged us a little bit extra, it was absolute peanuts considering how much of their own time was wasted. Due to issues with our venue, our wedding reception was pretty stressful for me and my husband, but Springbreak gave us the boost that we needed and allowed us to really enjoy ourselves (and the wind machines didn't hurt either). They are absolute professionals and thoroughly decent human beings who can only enhance your wedding celebrations.

Absolutely top class. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to go ahead with Spring Break despite the reduced numbers due to restrictions. Everyone had so much fun, it was the perfect way to finish off our special day. We look forward to seeing them again, great memories. Thanks for everything!

We were initially hesitant from booking these guys by a few things but we would definitely have regretted not having them. They absolutely made our day. Everyone spoke about how great they were the following day and we can not recommend them highly enough if you are looking for a band that will have your dance floor filled from the second they start until the wee hours (we got the DJ too!).

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.

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.

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

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!

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.
