Over the years we’ve met so many prospective brides convinced it was nearly impossible to get a top band for their wedding without spending a fortune.

Im glad to say they were wrong!

With over 23 years experience as resident band and DJ in the world famous Shamrock bar In Santa Ponsa, Mallorca, many European tours, the band for the Irish soccer team’s home games in the Aviva stadium and working with American tv company Evine , you can avail of the mighty Irish craic at your wedding without breaking the bank. We have helped countless brides to have a top quality band bring the Irish spirit and craic to their wedding reception, for much LESS than a normal wedding band. We have also opened up ALL our summer dates now for weddings so don't miss out on having probably THE most experienced party band in Ireland bring the spirit of irish craic AND summer holidays feeling to your wedding! 

According to the wedding survey done at, the average amount couples spend on band and DJ is 2,626 euro. When you book our band and DJ package, you will be saving more than 25% on that price!

We truly are the swiss army knife of wedding bands! Trad music, Irish country, social dancing, rock, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s and then we finish our night with our now sought after "Choonz vs Cheese" DJ set honed from over 23 years of DJing in sunny Santa Ponsa! In fact our entire set from start to finish is created based on listening to what literally tens of thousands of Irish people on holidays have asked us for over the last 23 years in Mallorca. 

Also, if you want just an Irish music wedding only, or rock and 80s only, just let us know...its your wedding your choice!

Ring us or text us at 083 480 6563 for more info. You can text us your email address and we can send you on our brochure with all package details and price.

Here’s what some of our happy brides had to say:

The Waxies, all I can say is WOW! Tony was a pleasure to deal with from the minute I booked them. The wedding was truly amazing thanks to them. Our guests never left the dance floor whilst they were playing. I knew I booked a great band but they exceeded all my expectations. Only advice I have is change into your flats ladies, it allowed me to dance all night. A very happy bride”

- Amanda Tierney

Got married Nov 18th and the Waxies played at our wedding and it was the best decision we made they were absolutely brilliant! interacted with my guests at all times and not once was the dance floor empty. If you are looking for a band that plays a bit of everything for all ages and also a great craic you will not be disappointed and reasonably priced too.

To top it all off they were like videographers they captured loads of lovely moments of our wedding night and sent it on to us  - Gina Lawrence

...after seeing The Waxies in Santa Ponsa i really wanted them for my wedding but was afraid that they would be outside my budget...but it turned out that they did the church, the reception and DJ for less than it would have cost me to hire just a band for the reception...the church music was beautiful and people are STILL talking about how wonderful they were..”

- Emma Thomas

We just wanted to thank you for playing at our wedding last week. Even hell or high water didn't keep ye away. We were amazed and so grateful that ye persevered through the adverse weather and flooding to make it to us. We had a fantastic night and you helped to make our wedding perfect! Out of all the weddings we have been to you were by far the best wed- ding band we have had the pleasure of being entertained by. An excellent performance augmented by traditional Waxie humour! All of our guests have given us nothing but positive feedback also, which is saying something given that they’re a tough crowd. You succeeded brilliantly in appealing to every age group and were extremely accommodating in allowing our Seanachaí (storyteller) tell his stories after the intermission. We’d love to get married again just so we could have The Waxies for one more night...”

I provide a professional DJ afterband service so i'm lucky enough to see many wedding bands perform. And they don't come any better than this. No other band interracts with their audience like the Waxies. They bring their audience on the journey with them. Their set is fabulous, and my god these boys can play. Fantastic musicians!

We had the Waxies for our wedding and from the second they started they had our dancefloor full. It doesn't matter if your 9 or 90 they will play something for absolutely everyone and keep your wedding guests singing, dancing and laughing from start to finish.They don't just stand on a stage and sing they interact with everyone in the room.Tony was an absolute pleasure to deal with in the build up to our wedding. I would highly recommend anyone getting married to have the lads for a wedding night that everyone will remember forever. Thank you so much From Marie & Aidan.

We had the waxies for our wedding, they kept the floor full all night long, we originally booked the lads in 2018 for our 2020 wedding and like so many others we had to postpone til this year. From the very beginning ringing the lads was like ringing a friend, nothing was too much hassle always so fast to respond to any questions and on the night they were brilliant, played for everyone, Tony even came out on the floor with the kids to do baby shark!! They are so well able to read the crowd and a month later we are still hearing how great the band was, people that weren't at our wedding are talking about how good the band was. Even the teenagers at our wedding said the band was really good. Best decision ever was picking the waxies, even when we had to pick our new dates we were not willing to loose them so we said we'd go with what dates they had available. Definitely won't be disappointed with the lads they will make your night!!

The waxies played at our wedding earlier this year. They also did DJ. They were the entire making of the wedding. From the minute they arrived the lads are all round great craic, they get the crowd going instantly. They come in and blend in as if you know them years, and it's not possible to be shy around them. They play every type of music you ask. They called me in the lead up to chat about the first dance, the one part of the day i was dreading, and they were great and made me realise it was no big deal they gkt the crowd up around us in seconds.

My brother had the waxies at their wedding in 2015 and the whole place was raving about them for months after. When we were planning our wedding it was a no brainer who our band would be, we had an original date for 2020 which was moved to 2021, the lads were so accommodating and flexible to just switch over to our new date. I could not recommend them enough, they just are an epic wedding band, I'll be telling my other brother to get them booked up for his upcoming wedding!!

Thank you, thank you,thank you so much for being the highlight of our wedding day . From the time we contacted you guys till the date of our Wedding you guys wer nothing but helpfull responsive and through everything that was going on so supportive and not to mention total value for money. From when the first dance was over you guys busted straight into dance floor fillers we literally spent the night dancing away with our friends and family and we loved how personal and craic filled you guys made the whole night from start to finish . All throughout the nite everyone was running from the tables straight back out because song after song you guys pulled it out of the bag . Everyone was talking about yi all through the nite and the next day and myself and abby wer so happy to have chosen yi as our band . Another great thing was having you doing the dj as well , the transition from one to the other was flawless and you wer so approachable throughout the nite to play songs everyone requested and no person was turned away . The random walk about with the camera on the dance floor will have memories we will cherish forever and it's another great service you supplied. We loved every second of it and it's easy to see why you guys are so in demand . 1 million percent the only wedding band that we would have ever wanted. And surpassed our expectations we will be at many a gig for the future Thanks from Tommy, Abby, Casey and Brooke .

I couldn't fault the lads, they were fantastic. If I was to to the wedding all over again I wouldn't change the band. They were so good, had everyone one up dancing new what songs to play. I couldn't have been happier to have the lads as my band.

Hi my son got the waxies for his wedding and they were absolutely brilliant. The Craig and banter between the band and the guests really brought everyone together and made the day. They played for all ages and nationalities at the wedding and were very professional throughout the day. They even sat at the kiddies table having dinner and were having the Craig with them. Absolutely brilliant. Would highly recommend.

The Waxies helped us with celebration of our wedding when the Ireland was getting out of COVID restrictions. There were very flexible with numerous changes we had to overcome. It was small private wedding in our private garden and thank to them it was brilliant. Ourselves and our guests, we all loved them. It's worth to mention the wedding was mixed of polish and Irish guests and they manage to include few polish songs which I'm very grateful for! I recommend them to everyone getting married! They're amazing! Our groomsman booked them for his wedding at our wedding and he was not even engaged at the time!

The Waxies were absolutely brilliant the whole way through, from the very first time I spoke to them right up until the very end of the big day in what was extremely difficult circumstances due to covid they just made my life extremely easy. They really made our day with the craic and banter with the guests, played great music. All my guests were contacting me days after the wedding raving about the Waxies. My best man booked them on the night for his wedding even though he wasn't engaged yet!!! Would highly recommend to anyone getting married. My wife is polish and they researched some polish wedding song on their own initiative to include the polish guests. Absolutely brilliant craic.

2 years to the day and The Waxies are still putting on a show for us. Just sent me a video they took throughout the night of our wedding and i want to do it all over again. From start to finish they had the place hopping. The dance floor was full all night and no song suggestion was a problem. The lads were full of fun and made our night exactly that.

We booked The Waxies for our wedding in September 2019. I honestly could not recommend them enough, the lads were great to respond to any queries or questions I had. We had seen them before in Santa Ponsa and at other weddings but in our opinion they were the best we had ever seen them at our wedding ????.. They had everyone up dancing all night and really interacted with our guests. For the money we paid (cheapest out of all the bands we priced) they were exceptional.. We even got a little video of the night which is amazing to have and we have had lots of laughs watching it back. Thank you so much again for making our night amazing and we couldnt reccomend ye enough ????
