We had a a lot of disruption to our wedding due to Covid Dave could not have been more understanding or helpful. Even when we decided to half our guestlist he reassured us that they could adjust to a smaller crowd and they definitely delivered. When researching bands i found a lot of them just noise the soundmen stood out because they play their instruments really well and you can hear the singers wonderful voice. The majority of guests were on the dancefloor for the night including the bride and groom. They were great fun, easy to deal with and most importantly with their infectious performance guests couldn't help but get on the dancefloor. Highly recommend thanks guys!!

We had the soundmen booked for the arrivals package. They were incredible, from my first point of contact Dave was so responsive and helpful and made things so easy. I fell in love with Dave's voice on first listen, no other band could compare. All my guests have said how impressive the soundmen are. I was dancing like a maniac all night, we would highly recommend booking the soundmen, you will not be disappointed!

The Soundmen were absolutely amazing at our wedding, we had the best night! Our guests (young and old) have also commented on how good they were and loved the interaction with the crowd. The dancefloor was never empty. They played 4 songs during our ceremony and made it so special.. also learning our our song for our first dance I would highly recommend them. They are so easy to deal with and put our minds at ease from the very beginning.. amazing band!!

My wife and I hired The Soundmen for all musical aspects of our wedding and we couldn't rate them any higher. The preformed 4 songs during our ceremony all of which the learned off on our request before the big day. They also preformed an excellent acoustic set for our chilled out drinks reception which all the guests really appreciated. After dinner the full band performed a set with Dave staying on to perform a DJ set after. They really engaged with the crowd throughout the day, and it was also great to have the odd chat with the lads during the day. Incredibly talented and nice guys to deal with. We would highly recommend them to anyone for their big day!!!

Hats off to whoever named this band 'The Soundmen'. Not only are they sound lads but Dave is so professional, easy to work with and leaves the wedding couple with nothing to worry about as far as the band is concerned. And as for their sound, they sound amazing! We first saw the lads at a showcase and were blown away. Little over a year later our wedding guests had the same experience. We've had people of all age groups and with different tastes in music say how great the band were. For some wedding bands its all about the show but with The Soundmen its all about the music and the show is just an added bonus. Thanks for raising the roof on a night we'll never forget!

Dave and the guys were amazing! Planning a wedding from the states was not an easy task but these guys were so great to work with and after one quick call with Dave we knew he would take care of us. We had them the whole day, from the ceremony to the DJ set so by the end of the night they were like old friends. All our guests kept commenting how awesome the music variety was and how impressed they were by the band. We would absolutely recommend them and can’t thank them enough for such a great night.

We found it really hard to decide on a band as it is one of the biggest elements of your day but once we saw the Soundmen live in a venue in Swords we knew we had found the right band. Dave is great, he is not only a great singer but really engages with the people on the dance floor. On the night we saw them live the dance floor was packed and he did the very same the night of our wedding. What was also great was Dave did all our music for us, from the ceremony right through to the last song of the night. They are value for money and so easy to deal with. We would highly recommend the Soundmen. Thanks again guys, David & Lindsay x

Dave and the lads were absolutely brilliant! Having viewed a load of "Wedding Bands" online, we quickly realised that they weren't quite what we were looking for. We came across the Soundmen on Youtube and after checking them out we popped down to one of their gigs in Dublin and that was it, viewed one band and they were booked. They are as tight a live band as I've seen, vocals were great and they can turn their hand to anything with no trouble! Daves level of professionalism on the run up to the wedding was terrific, with nothing being too much trouble. I also really appreciated his preference to chat through things rather than email. Top man! The lads really did a cracking job on creating the atmosphere at our NYE wedding. We had them play from first dance (which Dave took the trouble to learn acoustically and absolutely nailed it) right through to after midnight followed by a superb DJ set that we were able to work with them on. If you are reading this while considering The Soundmen, then dont hesitate to get them booked! Thanks a million guys! Ryan & Lydia

What can we say about The Soundmen, there aren’t enough words. The band together are so tight, so well rehearsed but still full of surprises and more importantly fun. We were so unbelievably happy with everything from our ceremony music to the pre dinner music, to the band and DJ. From the start right to the very end they were with us and the music was phenomenal. The lads had no problem even learning a couple of songs for our ceremony. We’ve been to a lot of weddings over the years and you guys are without doubt the best wedding band we have had the pleasure of hearing and you are worth every penny. How you interacted with everyone and got everyone involved and the lil surprises along the way really made our night and we’ll never forget it :) Right from the start Dave was always there on hand to help in any way. He was so quick to respond to any questions we had or any requests we wanted at the wedding - it was never too much trouble. These lads don’t treat it as just another gig, Dave treats ya like family and makes ya feel very special. If you are looking for a band who will keep everyone up dancing to the wee small hours and love a wide variety of good classic rock and Rock n Roll music then this is the band for you. Cannot stress enough how good these guys are. Thank you so much lads, it was a pleasure.

The Soundmen went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding. Even learning to play a slow version of our favourite song for the first dance. Dave and the band were very helpful in organising all our music, including church, reception, wedding and DJ for the day for a very good price. Couldnt recommend them highly enough.

These lads were great during the planning stage, just had to confirm the time/date and approve the set list. Then on the day, there was no hassle at all, they came in and setup quickly, and even went and learned our first dance song for us, so they could play it live. We received loads of compliments about the band, not just for how well they sounded, but also for the songs they played. This is key, because Dave (the lead singer) came to me and said from looking at the room, a few of the songs I had not approved would work well with the crowd we had, I agreed and he preceded to fill the dance floor over and over, get everyone involved and ignite the craic in the room. I would highly recommend.

God where to start. I searched high and low for a wedding band. I felt all other wedding bands where quite cabaret, even the bands that won "band of the year" etc. I loved the sound of dave''s voice on their YouTube clip and the musicians themselves. I booked the soundmen without even seeing them at a showedding case. I went for the full package with amazing wedding singers who where so nice and helpful. Acoustic music pre dinner. The band itself and d.j. this package was still cheaper then a lot of the wedding bands out there just playing the main wedding dancing part. The dance floor never emptied. From young to old everyone loved it. And since Friday 3 girls that where at my wedding have all asked me for the soundmen's contact number. Unreal. Thanks guys yee are simply great. Lots of love Alicia ?

The lads are AMAZING. Can't do enough for you. Everyone loved the pre dinner music. The dance floor was full all night and Dave's interaction with guests is brilliant. The wedding party dance off is a very funny part of the night(even if it was a fix for the ladies ). The DJ set kept the party going in the same vibe as the singing with the dance floor packed. Thanks so much lads.

The Soundmen were brilliant for our wedding, they came in early and provided music between the ceremony and meal in the hotel reception area, everybody was raving about them. Then for the evening part, i can not fault them, from start to finish, the dance floor was full, you cant ask for much for, a wide range of music, catering for all, even playing a few requests we asked for. The lads also provided the DJ for the night, again, dance floor was full. I would recompensed the lads to anybody, and lovely lads to deal with.

I cannot recommend The Soundmen highly enough!! They were absolutely brilliant! I asked them to learn the song for our first dance as it was not part of their list of songs, I was a little nervous about this as the song we had chosen means a lot to me but I needn't have worried - they did an absolutely fantastic version of the song! The are fun and kept the dance floor packed all night, everyone commented to us the next day how brilliant they were. We also hired the DJ and again, I couldn't fault them, they were fantastic, they read the crowd extremely well and kept the dance floor jammed! I would highly, highly, recommend them! Thank you guys for making the wedding such good fun!

The Soundmen played at our wedding party on August 9 at Castle Durrow. We got them to provide an acoustic duo for when the guests arrived and then they played a full set later on, as well as providing a DJ set. I can't speak highly enough of them, the acoustic set went down really well, and even my 14 month old nephew got in on the dancing. The first dance song we asked for was as awkward as could have made it on them (Motown with a female lead vocal!) but they pulled it off brillianty, and the DJ set at the end was great, the guests loved it. Dave was great to deal with, we were never left waiting ages for a response to any questions we had, which is great when you're trying to get things sorted in the run-up to the day. Also, having spent a good while looking for bands and pricing them, we found them to be excellent value for money. Great band, and as the name suggests, they are sound men. I'd book them again in the morning.

I can't recommend The Soundmen enough! From start to finish they were incredible, they had everyone up dancing and their music selection was perfect. From speaking with Dave prior to the wedding I knew we were in good hands, he was always quick to respond to any email or call and was happy to meet us for a chat. They looked after our wedding for 12 hours as we had the Acoustic Duo in the Church and at the Reception and then the Band followed by the DJ. Every part of their service was exceptional. Don't hesitate just book them, I am so thrilled that we did. Thank you so much you were amazing!!!

I would just like to say a massive thank you to the Soundmen. We celebrated our wedding 28th March 2015 at barberstown castle. This band were absolutely fantastic aNd played all the requests we asked for. They were so flexible and even stayed around to play an acoustic rendition when we were entering the venue. I cannot recommend these guys enough. We organised our wedding from Sydney and the Soundmen were just fantastic at keeping us in the loop and staying in contact with us in the lead up to the wedding!!! I would definitely recommend the Soundmen for any one wanting a fantastic wedding band. Th am u so much to dave and all the guys for a magical and entertaining evening. Ellie and stephen walsh ????

We booked The Soundmen for our wedding and I have one word - wow! These guys are a class act and had our dance floor rocking from the word go. A great professional band who know exactly what they needed to do to get the part started and more importantly keep it going!!. They were absolutely fantastic and Dave the lead singer is a real frontman. He met with us before the wedding to get to know us and get a real feel for what we wanted - this gave us the confidence that we were choosing the right band. All our guests were raving about them and I really can't speak highly enough of them. Pure Class - don't hesitate give them a call and book them, you won't regret it.

Okay folks, I'm not one for writing reveiws but here goes..... these guys deserve it! Myself and my wife had six months to plan our wedding and I was given the big task of orgainising the band. I know that a wedding band can make or break the day so I was feeling the pressure! Trawling through the interenet I was overwhelmed with the amount of wedding bands. I had contacted dozens of bands and they were either out of my budget or booked for the bank holiday Saturday night in June, however thankfully a friend mentioned a wedding she had been at where the dance floor had been full for the night and craic never stopped..... THE SOUNDMEN!!!! I contacted Dave the lead singer and asked if we could come along to hear them play. What a top lad! He couldn't have been more friendly, we heard them play and booked them there and then. Dave said that we could contact him at anytime leading up to the day, and he was true to his word, he could not have been more helpful with playlists, etc. The band played "Ho Hey" by the Lumineers for our first dance and it sounded just like the real thing. The dance floor was full throughout the night. Dave and the band have some great unique tricks to create good laughs and fun for all ages. Looking back on our photos and hearing the feedback from our friends it is clear that they really made the night. We honestly cannot recommend them enough, thank you so much to Dave and The Soundmen for leaving us with such happy lasting memories of our special night.

Absolutely brilliant wedding band, got everyone involved without being too invasive - really helped in making it a night to remember. We'd seen the band in the Abberley Court and thought they were brilliant but we didn't really get to see how good they were until the wedding. The show they put on was absolutely class and everyone was remarking how brilliant they were(music and personality). Cheers lads for a great night - would also like to say thanks for the dj organised -kept the party going until the early hours. Couldn't recommend anyone else. 5 stars all round - best wedding band we've seen.
