1. We booked The Soundmen after meeting Dave for 5 minutes at a wedding fair, instantly we could tell he had the right vibe for what we wanted our day to be - chill but quality.

    They even went and learned a song for our first dance rather than just playing it, and we really appreciated that.

    They also made a great effort in getting everyone invlved and on the dance floor.

    We got great feedback from guests that the music was great, not just that it was played well but also the songs chosen were good. Dave had emailed me a list of songs before the wedding, and I had axed a few that I didn't like, but he came in, took a look at the room and knew there was a few songs that would get the room moving. So told me and I agreed, and it was a huge success.

    I would definitely recommend.

  2. 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 ?

  3. 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.

  5. Just book them!!
    Seriously, I spent days and days searching through hundreds of videos of irish wedding bands trying to find one that wasnt too serious, but not too invasive, a band that was down to earth, where our suggestions were happily taken on board and with enough craic & stage presence to keep everyone on the dancefloor - The Soundmen tick all the boxes!!
    We booked them for the whole day and they did not disappoint, from start to finish (ceremony to reception to band to DJ set) they were professional, great craic and the music was just fantastic (and we are picky!), the dancefloor was packed all night with everyone old and young alike commenting on how much they enjoyed the music!
    Can't thank them enough or recommend them highly enough, great bunch of lads;
    thanks for making our (wedding planning) life easier and for an amazing day & night of music!

  6. The Soundmen played our wedding party recently and I can't speak highly enough of them. They played an acoustic set for us as guests arrived that went down really well, and then the full band played later, followed by a DJ set. Everything was top class and they were a pleasure to deal with. All questions in the run up were responded to quickly, which is great when you're trying to get things sorted in the run up to the day.
    Also, I've been at weddings before where the band provides a 'DJ Set' which is basically a playlist they leave running in the background while they pack their gear. There's none of that with the Soundmen, Dave stayed for the whole DJ set and kept the party going, which was brilliant, taking requests and keeping everyone happy.
    I'd highly recommend them, great to deal with and a great band, thanks very much.

  7. We are so happy with Dave and the lads, they were the talk of the wedding the day after, they were amazing with the crowd kept us up dancing all night. Dave was also great at getting a feel for us and what type of wedding were doing via email before the wedding, taking playlists of music we both like etc... They were fantastic and would definitely recommend them.

  8. Thanks Dave and the guys for a brilliant night!

    We couldn't have asked for anything better, there cannot be a better wedding band in Ireland. The crowd were on their feet for the entire night.

  9. Hi Dave & Soundmen, Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for the great tunes on our big day. Everyone young and old had a ball. You guys kept the dance floor packed. Would highly recommend you guys for any future weddings and gigs. You guys are a great alterative to the usual cheesy wedding bands. Thanks for learning the songs we wanted and for playing up to date tunes. Roll on the bookings for 2015! Thanks Rachel & Paul

  11. 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.

  13. Thank you Dave and the lads for such an amazing night. Everyone had such a great time at the wedding and the dance floor was packed. Could not have asked for a better band for our big day. Thank you so so much x

  14. 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 honnestly cannot reccomend them enough, thank you so much to Dave and The Soundmen for leaving us with such happy lasting memories of our special night.

  15. 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.
