The guys were absolutely amazing! We’ve waited for this wedding for 3 years almost and we’re really anxious about it being just right. The band really worked with us , asked what we wanted and what we envisaged for the day, what our music tastes were more like. They really went the extra mile. The party was off the chart!!???????????????????????? Thank you guys very much!!

John at was very professional in the way he replied promptly to our query at the start and also in accommodating us in meeting our individual needs as a couple in preparation for our wedding. The band, The Urge, were amazing! They were lively playing old and new material whilst entertaining all our guests, both old and young. The dance floor was full all night and their party pieces made them stand out from other wedding bands (well so our guests say!) Thank you guys!

Big thanks to John and the texas wildcats for making our wedding night so special. John was so kind and helpful throughout the preparations. From our conversations john instantly knew the type of music we liked and wanted to dance the night away to. The dance floor was packed all night and our guests are still speaking of the wonderful band at the wedding. I would highly recommend the texas wildcats to everyone as they are fantastic and very professional. Thanks again john and all in the wildcats

Super SUPER band, on hearing them at a previous wedding they didn't finish the first song and myself & my now husband looked at each other and said 'THAT'S THE BAND SORTED FOR OUR WEDDING', it was as easy as that. Highly recommended for any wedding. Fantastic at rounding up the guests on the dance floor they are all so professional and extremely talented, easy to deal with and go through all music options you want eg; a mix of waltz, jiving and upto date tunes too. Booking this band you'll not be disappointed in the slightest x

Myself and my new husband Gary had the Texas Wildcats for our wedding last July 2015 in the Hillgrove Hotel in Co Monaghan. From the very first time we seen them play in the Poc Fada bar we lovely them and no matter we were having them for our wedding cause they were just absolutely amazing. They were actually the second thing we booked when starting to plan out wedding. Well the wedding night came and the lads were setting up and the guest were all looking forward to them playing the night away. They done an amazing job they played music for everybody's taste and they get everyone involved. If there was some song a guest wanted they played it. When they were getting ready to finish up the guests wanted more cause they were so so good and they got it. I would highly recommend these lads to play at any function as they will be the best band to get the crowd going and they will make sure that everyone is happy and having a good time.

Band was recommended to us by our wedding co-ordinator and we went to see them play at a wedding also we watched them on YouTube. Great lively band and able to get the crowd up and dancing. John was very friendly and great to deal with. Just got our wedding DVD back after Xmas and our crowd danced all night. One if our guests even commented that "it was a great band to play for all ages" which kept me happy :-) Also the provided the Dj after the dancing had finished.

The Urge played at our wedding and they were brilliant. They knew straight away what music to play for the crowd and kept everybody on the dance floor. The variety of jives, slow dances and waltz was just right to give everybody a dance. They were very professional with contracts and deposits to keep us both right , and gave us plenty of dates to go and view them at other weddings. We highly recommend The Urge for a wedding.

The wildcats were above and beyond our expectations.They got everyone on the floor from the get go.Appealed to all ages with the variety of their playlist and we still get people commenting on how good the music was.Think it's a good sign that when the hotel put on the house lights people were still dancing and shouting for more.we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the guys to any couple looking for 'thee' band for their wedding.

We both worked in a busy wedding venue where the Texas Wildcats often played. They were by far the best band we heard while working there and knew we had to have them for our wedding. John and the lads were amazing. They went above and beyond to learn the sing we really wanted for our 1st dance. The dance floor was full for the whole night and I would most definitely recommend wedding couples to book the Texas Wildcats ????

Great band and great range of music covered, dance floor was never empty, John made it so easy to sort out, all done by text and emails as we live in UK. There was very little disturbance setting up in the evening and all our guests raved about how good the band was, we would definitely recommend The Urge.
