5* band, kept the dance floor buzzing all night - even during sound check! Played all the right songs to keep variety of age ranges on the dance floor. Quick replies to emails and very pleasant to deal with.

Ball and Chain were just incredible! We are so delighted that we chose them for our full wedding day, they just made everything so simple for us!! I actually can't begin to explain how beautiful Lucy's voice is, she made our ceremony so so special!! From the ceremony, to the drinks reception, to dancing the night away and the DJ afterwards, we couldn't but sing their praises! All of our guest are still raving about the music and the battle of the families!! Thank you guys for helping us make our wedding day the best day ever!

Ball and Chain were absolutely amazing. As a couple who love old school rock and roll, we came upon Ball and Chain and instantly knew they were the band for us. The floor was packed all night. Guests are still raving about the music. Thank you for making our Wedding so memorable. We can not recommend them enough.

We were absolutely blown away by Ball and Chain. The dancefloor was packed from the start all the way until late into the night. They played everything and kept all ages dancing. The band sounded great and the DJ was also brilliant. They were all so fantastic and I would be recommending them to anybody and everybody. Thanks so much for making our wedding so memorable

Ball and Chain were absolutely amazing! We didn’t leave the dancefloor all night! The band was very professional, they had great package options to suit all types of weddings – we booked them for the after-dinner music and DJ set. They set up quickly and had everyone dancing immediately. We booked the band originally in 2020 but had to reschedule due to restrictions, and they were very accommodating and made the booking process very easy for us. Their setlist was great and had something for everyone. Our guests particularly liked the 90’s dance tracks and the synth! So much so, that some of our guests tried to book Ball and Chain for their own weddings as they were packing their equipment away. We honestly hope to see Ball and Chain again at another wedding in the near future, and would not hesitate for a second to recommend them for yours.

We are so glad that we chose Ball and Chain for our full wedding day. Lucys voice really made our ceremony and she was very helpful with ideas for suitable music throughout the ceremony. All of our guests kept commenting on how excellent the music was throughout the day. Kevin and Lucy really set the atmosphere for the drinks reception. Although we had restricted numbers at the venue the band really made us forget that and it was almost impossible to leave the dancefloor. They were able to do a fantastic version of our first dance song which made it feel so personal to us. The DJ kept the dancing going and ive never seen a more lively version of riverdance in Ireland! We really couldnt recommend Ball and Chain highly enough. We would like to say thank you for really making our day.

Ball and Chain were the third wedding band we went to see and booked them straight after. We had them for the band and DJ. They were always quick to respond and very helpful with any questions we had beforehand and turned up early on the day to be ready for whenever we needed them. We had an absolute blast on the night and the dancefloor was always busy, even with it being a small wedding. All the guests had a great time and were raving about the band afterwards. Couldn't recommend them enough!!

What a night was had all thanks to Kevin and the gang!! They were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and no request was too much for them. They made organising music for the wedding so easy with no stress. They had the dance floor packed from start to finish and everyone expressed how great the band (and dj) were. Both Darren and I would 100% recommend these guys again and again. Thank ye all for giving us an amazing night, definitely one to remember!!

Ball and Chain played at our wedding earlier this month, they were absolutely fantastic. The dance floor was full from start to finish. I never danced as much in all my life. Really good selection of music for all tastes. They are all very talented musicians and i especially liked the way they interacted with the crowd and got everyone involved. This isnt only my opinion, our guests are still on about how great they were. They were a pleasure to deal with throughout. All the best in the future guys and keep up the good work.

These guys are fantastic, hands down we couldn’t have made a better choice! We booked Ball and Chain to cover everything from ceremony to DJ and they absolutely nailed it. So responsive from the get go. Complete stress free planning with them. The ceremony music was magical, the drinks reception music kept everyone upbeat and from the time they started playing after the meal until they finished in the early hours of the morning the dance floor was full, they really know how to judge a crowd. Our guests were full of compliments afterwards. Thanks again guys, loved it!!

We had the most amazing time with ball and chain. We had them throughout the whole day. Andrew played at the church and Kevin for reception drinks. They were brilliant. The band then had the dance floor packed all night and interacted with the crowd so well. Great communication throughout. I highly recommend.

We had Ball and Chain perform at our wedding last month and they were absolutely sensational. They had our dance floor full from start to finish with their incredible set list. There are songs for everyone at every age and even our guest who won’t dance couldn’t stay away from the dance floor! We booked Lucy to sing at our church ceremony and she took our breath away. Lucy has the most stunning voice and her performance made our mass extra special. There wasn’t a guest at the wedding who didn’t ask about and compliment her breathtaking voice and performance. We asked for Andrew to perform at the drinks reception and he was excellent. He captured the vibe of the crowd perfectly and had our guests entertained while they waited on the meal. We also booked Kevin as our DJ and he was amazing! He kept those floor fillers coming until we couldn’t dance anymore! We cannot recommend Ball and Chain enough!

Ball and Chain were fantastic start to finish. They were a pleasure to deal with while I planned the day, accomodated all song choices and gave helpful tips. We chose Lucy to sing at our ceremony, she is supremely talented and made the mass extra special. We also had the lads play guitar at our drinks reception, the full band for our wedding reception and DJ. I cannot recommend Ball and Chain enough. I have never danced so much or laughed so hard. Their set list caters for all ages with a fantastic mix of classics and chart music. Everyone commented how amazing the band were and guests of ours have already booked them for their own big day. Thank you Ball and Chain!
