Stop wasting time looking at other bands and just book The Harleys. Great musicianship, great enthusiasm, very friendly and accommodating. They were hands down the best wedding band I have ever seen.

The Harleys were bloody amazing!! They gave us a mighty night of entertainment and fun and we absolutely loved them as did our friends & family!! They offer something different to a typical wedding band which everyone really enjoyed and they kept the dancefloor full all night which was fantastic! I would highly recommend having a chat with Gary and he'll give you a laugh and put you at ease as it can be a daunting task picking a band, but he made it so straight forward and an easy pick for us! Great guys!

We had The Harleys play at our wedding recently and they were just amazing. We had gone to see them play a set before we booked them and knew we were making the right decision when we saw the dancefloor was full all night even though there was a pretty empty pub due to covid restrictions. I love music and I really wanted our band to be incredible and a talking point and they absolutely were. Everyone is still talking about how unreal the band were, from the first dance right to the end the dancefloor was hopping. It was also an absolute pleasure to deal with Gary, we always enjoyed our conversations and everything was so easy and straightforward, nothing was a bother, a true professional but also a really nice person. They even accommodated my dad singing and they learned my favourite song which was one of the highlights of the day. Anyone would be lucky to have The Harleys play at their wedding and we are so happy that we had that honour.

Straight out of the gate, they got our guests up and onto the dance floor, for what was an epic night of excellent music and sore feet. We found the Harleys second to none, completely professional, willing to listen to us, but also showcasing a keen sense of reading the room, that allowed them to switch up their setlist on the fly to suit the mood. By prior arrangement, Gary stood aside on vocal duty, and let the father of bride belt out a couple of songs. And without missing a beat, straight back into their high quality set. We also booked the DJ set, and it did not disappoint. Keeping in mind the Harleys had already played a 2 hour set, the dance floor kept moving, as Gary put out some great songs, that appealed to all. Special mention towards the end of the set, when it got a bit heavier at our request, definitely music outside of the norm, which contributed to the overall fun.
Response from The Harleys
Thanks Catherine and Peter - i think I enjoyed the DJ set as much as you both did!! Great night and thanks for having us!

Everyone wants their wedding day to go perfectly. We were no different. We knew what the dress, suits, flowers, church, cake, hotel and food were going to be like. None of these things cost us a moment’s worry. But atmosphere? How can you be certain of how that will be? Sure, we had invited our friends and family and knew they were all good people and were looking forward to a great day out. But how would they all gel together, most of them having never met? And how would we create a fun-filled night for the wide age group of age 5 to age 75? Well, the answer was to book The Harleys. Our wedding guests are still talking about them almost two years on. From the first dance people were hooked. They learned a song for us that my husband had chosen and gave it a rock twist. It was a hit. By the time the first 30 seconds of the next song was played the dance floor was full and stayed like that all night. Genuinely, there wasn’t a lull at all and people who would normally be delighted to see the ‘afters’ food coming out groaned because it meant the band had to take a break! I have been asked numerous times who our band was so that others can book them, even by people who weren’t there but heard their friends raving about them. Gary even popped out to our house when we booked to talk about the set. That was lovely. He put our minds at rest that there would be something for everyone, while still sticking to what my husband and I liked. He was right. We don’t think we will ever get the image out of our heads of turning around to see my pensioner Dad and my husband’s pensioner aunt ‘rocking out’ with their newly learned rock ‘fingers’ in the air and their happy, sweaty faces! The Harleys were brilliant, nothing short of it. Gary stayed on to DJ afterwards and gave us a great rate. Again the dance-floor was full. These guys really know how to read a crowd. Some of the other little things really stick in our minds – how good they were to the little boys (son and nephews) when they were tuning up, having the craic with them, then the lead-singer Gary actually came and got me for the first dance because he knew I was caught up talking somewhere. Afterwards Gary came over to thank us on behalf of the band. Thank us?! It was definitely our pleasure. What more can I say? Book The Harleys!

The Harleys have grown into a fully-fledged hard-out rock show & probably the best classics band in Ireland.

Dear Gary and all the rest of The Harleys and the DJ too, "You Rock." Thank you all so very much for your magnificent performance at our Wedding at Castle Durrow. Your brought the roof down and got everyone onto the dance floor. We never imagined when we were planning our wedding that we would be head-banging to 'A Whole Lotta Rosie' live. But you got our friends and family down. Well done. It wouldn't have been the same without you. Many, many thanks!

We got married on 7th of June 2013 and one of the many highlights of the day was having 'The Harleys' perform for our guests. They were simply brilliant! We definitely made the right decision choosing these guys, as the band are key to having a great night. After searching the net and going to a lot of gigs around the country we both knew we wouldn't get a band better than 'The Harleys'. They're a great bunch of guys and brilliant at what they do. Gary was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful with any requests on the run up to our wedding. They cater for everyone from parents to the younger generation playing music to suit all. A sign that it was a good night was that the floor was never empty from the first dance right through to the D.J. set which Gary did for us. We can't recommend them highly enough for any event!!!! Thank you so much for ending our day with a Bang, we'll never forget it!

The Harleys – You rock!Hi guys, We just wanted to say a big thank you for being the best wedding band EVER! From dealing with you over the phone before the wedding to on the night itself you were all true professionals and were so helpful. Gary, thank you so much for singing our first song –what a voice- it was really a special moment and from then you really got the party going. Everyone was up enjoying themselves and commenting how amazing you guys are, and the compliments have carried on ever since. We cannot recommend The Harleys highly enough! If you want a quality, professional, great sounding band, look no further.

We got married on a hot day in July 2013 in Darver Castle, just outside Dundalk in Co. Louth. It was the most fantastic day, shared with family and friends, with lots of food, drink, banter, music and dancing! Music was a very important part of our day - we wanted something a little different, memorable, but most of all, music that everyone could enjoy and dance to. One of the things people talked about most after the wedding was how great the band, The Harleys were on the night. Great tunes, great sound and great energy which kept the dance floor full all night long. Gary and the guys really made sure that the party atmosphere continued all the way through their set. From the outset, having heard the band play before and having gotten recommendations from friends who had them play at their weddings, we knew that The Harleys were the band for us. From the first time we got in contact with the band to the wedding day itself, dealing with Gary was a pleasure. He was so easy to talk to and very helpful and accommodating. He immediately put us at ease and from the moment we booked the band we had no worries. We knew everything would be perfect. They are the ultimate professionals and we would highly recommend them as a wedding band. A very talented band with a great rock style and wedding set that they play to great effect. We never had to worry about song choice, volume, sound quality - it was all perfect. People are still commenting on how great our band was and how many people were on the dance floor! Major thanks to all the lads that make up The Harleys - you helped make our day!

I got married to an amazing man Gerry this new years eve in my ultimate venue, Belleek Castle. From the outset myself and Gerry knew we wanted our wedding to be different. Both myself and Gerry are creative in our field of work in music and design so we appreciate bespoke pieces and quality above all. We had listened to other wedding bands but nothing stood, out to be honest it all sounded the same. We didn't let it dishearten us so we started our search. The following weekend we went to see a band called the Harleys in Brennans lane. They rocked the place with real enthusiasm and energy. We looked at each other and knew we found our band. When we contacted The Harleys it was Gary I spoke to and we must have been an hour on the phone discussing music and laughing. I didn't want the garter game or any of that type of thing and Gary had no problem with it. We wanted the band to ring in the new year and trust me they did with style. Our first dance song was Lady by Kenny Rogers. That song meant a lot to us and they did such an amazing cover, it was very emotional. We literally rocked the castle and the children went wild on the dance floor with the blow up guitars. Many of them are asking their parents for guitar lessons ;) Everyone is still talking about our band we are so proud that at our wedding we had an energetic, fresh and unbelievably talented rock band. The dance floor was full all night! A huge thank you to all the talented musicians in the Harleys. Rock on, Maureen

“I’ve seen The Harleys play at Radio Nova parties, weddings and in the local. These guys are guaranteed to make any event a good one. They’ve an amazing repertoire of songs to keep everybody happy, not to mention their note-perfect sound and great rapport with the audience. Everything a live band should be. The Harleys don’t go through the motions – they create them!”

Because of what I do with Radio Nova, I'm constantly asked if I know of a good band to play at...(insert any kind of celebration here!!) I know lots of good bands.. why settle for "good"? BUT if you're looking for a GREAT band - then these guys are my first recommendation. So professional, so tight, the full package and an amazing sound system to boot. Want a great band? Book 'The Harleys'.
