We had the poor boys play at our wedding in September and my god they were amazing. They had the dance floor full for the night and even allowed me (the bride) to take over the singing for a bit haha. Everyone has been singing their praises since the wedding and I would highly recommended them to anyone looking for a wedding band, they are fantastic. Thanks again guys!

The Poor Boys were absolutely fantastic, a pleasure to deal with before hand and brilliant on the night. I’ve lost count of the number of guests who have said that they were the best band they’d ever heard at a wedding and how they hadn’t stopped dancing for the entire set. In fact lots of people who generally don’t dance at weddings didn’t leave the dance floor which says it all. We really could not recommend them highly enough. Oh and they did a perfect rendition of our first song which they learned just for us which was really appreciated.

I just wanted to send an email to say a big THANK YOU to you guys for playing at our wedding on 30th June in Clontarf Castle , to say you were amazing would be an understatement!! From the very beginning Niall was so easy to deal with, which for a bride trying to organize a wedding is a huge bonus. We had seen you guys play prior to the wedding and we instantly loved you because you were so different to normal wedding bands.

I know I thanked you and the band on the night but I just wanted to extend Norah and myselfs gratitude to you and all for helping make our wedding night a great success, ye were absolutely brilliant. We could not have asked for more and were thrilled with the reaction and the overall atmosphere garnered by yourselves.

You guys completely surpassed all of our expectations. Not only did you play all the rock songs that we love (including an incredible version of Zeppelin’s Rock and Roll), you really did manage to play a set that catered for every single person in the room. I’ve never before seen so many people on a dance floor at a wedding, even my aunts and uncles who are in their late 60’s & 70’s were up dancing for most of the night! Our guests still haven’t stopped contacting us to tell us how impressed they were.

I never got to thank you on the night for playing an ‘Absolute Blinder’ on Sunday. It was the best Gig I’ve ever seen, you and the lads (Poorboys) are pure class and you completed the evening in ways that words can’t describe. I’d just like to thank you from all of us! You wrapped up our day perfectly and made it very special.

Thanks for a great night’s entertainment on the 5th in Brooklodge. We had a ball and everyone was talking about the band afterwards & still are! People said it was like going to a proper gig instead of a typical wedding band!

They were absolutely fantastic! They were charming, polite, PATIENT, extremely talented and responsible for many more sore feet come Sunday than we could have hoped! The feedback from all our guests was really positive and I have told them who to contact should they wish to use their services in the future. Please pass on my thanks to Niall & the boys. I will be happy to provide a reference/feedback should it be required in the future.

I just wanted to drop a line to thank you for all your efforts. The wedding worked out perfectly. The Poor Boys were amazing, several people commented on just how good they were. We had several professional musicians in the audience who were full of good compliments. Please pass on my thanks to them. They truly made the night.

Just a quick note to say thank you for your help with our band selection for our wedding on 12th Feb. The Poor Boys were absolutely amazing – coudln’t fault them. They went down so well with our guests. Plus because of our speeches we really over-ran and the band had to wait around for ages. But they were so good about it.
