Unbeatable wedding entertainment, these drummers & dancers will bring your party to the next level! Before the band kick off, this brand new 20 minute show is a MUST for your big day. With a striking uniform of black kilts and leather vests, jaw dropping choreography, Irish Dancing, and Audience Participation, everyone will love it!

We recommend having our show on after the meal and speeches, but really anytime of the day or night works great. We have played before and after the ceremony, the drinks reception, bringing bride and groom into dinner, directly after the speeches, directly before the band, during the band break, and when the band finishes, and all those times have a great effect! 

Please get in touch to discuss further.

Please check out our website

We also tie in with the amazing band AfterParty - a 5 piece Funk, Soul, Motown and Modern smash hits band. These guys are absolutely incredible, and we highly recommend them!

I had organised the Hit Machine as a surprise for Adam and Lisa Marie, Kevin was great to deal with, he organised everything and offered great advice. They travelled to the Mill Park in Donegal to perform at the wedding It was an absolute hit with the bridal party and all the guests, everyone really enjoyed the performance, the drumming was amazing and so was the dancing, the audience participation was a real bonus it set the tone for the rest of the wonderful wedding reception. We all had a great day, the Hit Machine was well worth booking and was something different to kickstart the reception

I chose the Hit Machine Drummers as a surprise for my husband! We both love the drummers at the rugby matches and knew he would love them!! There are no words though that pays them the justice they deserve - they were absolutely amazing and really lifted the energy in the room after dinner! Our guests loved them too and we got so many amazing compliments about them! They were professional and so easy to deal with coming up to the wedding too!! Thank you again so much! 5 star service and happy to recommend!!

Fantastic part of our wedding afters. I had planned this as a surprise for my wife and our guests - only myself, the drummers and the hotel manager were aware. Just after the speeches, and before the wedding band, in came the lads booming on their drums to wake the crowd with an exciting and fun performance. They really got the energy of the room back up again, after food coma of the meal and speeches and were the talk of the night! They got myself and my wife Orla involved and other guests, and were great to deal with beforehand in terms of planning the surprise performance. Top class!

We had the guys for our wedding for after the meal!!! To say they were UNREAL is an understatement and I have no words to describe how great they were! From start to end the room were on their feet dancing, conga and clapping to the drums. Absolutely amazing!! Highly recommend

We got The Hit Machine for after the meal when there's a lull. They performed outside and were absolutely amazing. Everyone was clapping and dancing to the beat of the drums. The energy went skyhigh!The dancefloor was packed all night and I'm sure it was a result of having these guys.

Massive thanks to the Hit Machine Drummers who performed at our wedding on 5th May 2018 at the Heritage Killenard. We had 4 drummers, one of which was also a dancer, and they absolutely blew the audience away. We kept the performance a surprise for all our guests and bridal party and after the meal while everyone was still sitting down at their tables one drummer walked into the ballroom and got everyone’s attention with some amazing drumming and then the party started!! The rest of the band burst into the room for an amazing extravaganza! They played for a great length of time and we loved the audience participation and the opportunity to pose for photos afterwards! The Hit Machine just added a huge kick of life to the usual after dinner lull and we were delighted with the professionalism and quality of the performance of the drummers and their Irish dancer and especially the main man - Anthony who really grabbed the audiences attention and kept us entertained throughout the performance. Kevin was a pleasure to deal with from the first time we contacted them after seeing their street performance in Dublin City right up to the day itself. We would highly recommend everyone to book the Hit Machine! Thanks so much guys - Rachel & Andrew

We wanted something different for our wedding and boy did the guys do this for us. From the moment they started they had our guests full attention. They are still talking about it nearly 2 months later. We had 3 lads on the drums and one brilliant lad doing Irish dancing. The lads know how to put on a show and get the guest to participate. It was a great way to start off out night of entertainment for the wedding. Would have no problem in recommending them to all. Thanks for a great time.

The HIT machine were the highlight of our wedding! There was a second wind had by everyone when these guys performed. Everyone was raving about them afterwards. It was a treat seeing them perform with such energy the whole way through. I would do it all again to see them perform again.

The Hit Machine Drummers performed at our wedding at Langton's House Hotel, Kilkenny on July 10th 2016. The energy that they brought to the evening reception was brilliant. They performed directly after the first dance as a surprise for our guests. Even the quiet sound of their drumming as they entered the venue had everyone on their toes and curious to see what was about to happen. I find that after the first dance wedding guests can be a bit sleepy and wander off but the performance was so full of energy it left everybody pumped and ready to go for the band to start. They are very talented and definitely something different for a wedding. Guests of all ages thoroughly enjoyed the show and told us so! Thank you again to the Hit Machine Drummers for adding something unique to our wedding day!

the hit machine drummers were the best money I spent for our wedding. WOW. I've had so many calls, texts and emails since my wedding asking me who they were and where did I find them. Myself and my husband wanted something a bit different as we are both rock fans. Well the hit machine certainly delivered something different. Everyone in the room from 21 years old right up to my 70 year old aunts and uncles were gathered around clapping. The Irish dancing is fantastic and also a show stopper. I literally can't recommend these guys enough. I even got pulled up to play with the guys when they heard I used to play drums! I was very rusty but hey!!

We hired the hit machine for our wedding and without a shadow of a doubt it was the best decision that we made over all the wedding. These guys were just amazing and blew everyone's mind!! We had just finished the meal and everyone was in a bit of lull after it, then these guys entered the room with so much energy that they literally brought everyone back to life. It was an unbelievable surprise to all our guests. Young and old thought that they were just brilliant and the Irish dancing routine was superb. People are still talking about their performance. Thank you guys for being one the best highlights from our wedding!!! Martina & Paul

We booked the Hit Machine for entertainment before our band were due to come on. Nobody had any idea of what was going on it was great to see their reaction. They came through after we just cut the cake and played their drums while walking past the guest up to the stage. Their drumming and dancing was excellent and I would recommend them for your wedding day as that little extra special touch. The feedback from the guests were all so positive and they enjoyed it as it was something different. All the guys did a great job and made our day even more memorable.
