Hello Niamh

We are just writing you a quick note to thank you and the team for everything you did for us on the day of our wedding. Not only that, you helped us organize so much more, such as the ceremony music, pre reception music, band and DJ.

With both myself and Niamh living in Toronto to have all of this organized for us was amazing that we could count on you for so much on our special day.

Firstly to Yann and Stella with the ceremony music, thank you both so much. It was perfect and we could not ask for more. We asked would they learn a song for us to use in the ceremony and they did not disappoint us. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was.

To the Jazz Duo, it’s rare you get a day like the day we got that day. Thank you for accommodating .

To the band, all we can say is you rocked the place. The wedding band I have ever seen. I know we are biased because you were ours, but a lot of guests had said the same.

To the DJ, thank you for playing the Five megamix, you definitely kept the guests happy.

Finally, to Yann and the rest of the band, it was a pleasure to have you as our wedding band. We got to speak to you at different stages throughout the day and we could not meet a nicer group of people.

We wish you all the best in the future and we know you will continue to be a huge success because of how good you are.

Thanks and Kindest Regards

We hired The Good Guys as our band for our wedding in Northern Ireland in August 2014. The Band were amazing from the first song and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed them. They had everyone dancing right from the beginning to the very end and we couldn't have hoped for a better night. I would highly recommend them for any event especially a wedding and you'll be guaranteed your guests feet will be sore by the end of the night from all the dancing!

The Good Guys played at our wedding at Cabra Castle on the 27th July 2014 and were absolutely fantastic. They brought a great level of energy and the whole room was up dancing, including Agnes 87 years old!! The guys just go from one song to the other with no pause in between.

We also went with their DJ who was also very good. Arrived on time, set up in no time and then all go.

All in all, best money spent as part of the whole wedding.

Just a quick email to say thanks to you and The Good Guys for making our wedding a great day. Niamh was very professional and easy to deal with and made the booking process so easy. As for the band, they were absolutely brilliant and had everyone on the floor right from the start. So much so that they were knackered by the time the DJ came on. Everyone was commenting the next day about how good they were. Please pass on our thanks to them.

Best of luck in the future and thanks again.

Kind Regards

Just wanted to say a huge thank you from both of us to yourself and the band. They were absolutely brilliant-from the church music all the way through to the dj at night.
So many people commented to us how good the band were on the night and the fact that they all looked to be having a good time themselves, really helped make our day great.

Just want to thank The Good Guys and DJ for their excellent music on July 12th in New Ross. It was a crazy day with such high temperatures and we were so happy with the effort that the lads put in to ensuring that the guests had a great night and everyone has had the height of praise for them. It was such a pleasure to deal with you from initial enquiry, to booking, to the event. We hope that the guys were treated well by the hotel and recovered from the heat exposure!!! We had a fab night and my feet are still recovering!!!Will be recommending you 110%.
Thanks again

Hi there,

Just a short note to thank the band for contributing to us having a brilliant night on our wedding night in The Grand Hotel, Malahide on 27th October. The dance floor was full all night from start to finish for both band and DJ, the music was just spot on all night and the general good mood of the band rubbed off on everyone.
So many of our guests also paid huge compliments to the music and I reckon it’s important to let you know this! So thanks again and keep up the good work.

Hi Niamh

Well, what can I say? The Good Guys were the business! We and all our guests had an absolute ball and everyone complimented the band! Hope they enjoyed playing too. We were delighted when they played the 1st song live and had even added the harmonica – never expected that but, for us, it really was a special touch.

Once again – thanks for making everything so straightforward. I’ll be in touch again just wanted to send the initial note.

best regards,

Hi Niamh,
Sorry I am only getting around to contacting you now.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and The Good Guys. The guys put on such a great performance at our wedding in The Glenview Hotel on Saturday 14th August. From the minute they started right up until 2am the whole dance floor was full. As we were doing our first dance, everyone was standing around us and as soon as we finished they all ran onto the floor!! All the guests are still talking about how good our band were and of course we had some fun with the DJ.
Many thanks,

We can not think of a more appropriate name for you than the good guys; unless perhaps the great guys?
You are a talented bunch, and as you promised you had the dancefloor packed from the first dance to the last. The sound quality was brilliant, the performance was brilliant, the choice of songs was brilliant, you were brilliant... you get the picture.
Everybody is still raving about you and you have been the talking point of a fantastic day for us. So a sincere thank you for a job well done.

Both myself and Conor would like to say a HUGE thank you to The Good Guys. We had a fantastic day topped off by a fantastic performance from the guys, i wanted them to play on and if I had my way they would have been back in the residents bar with us for the sing song!!
They were talked about by everyone and made our day, the dance floor was never empty, all in all they were superb and I would recommend them to anyone....and will of course.
We were hugly apprecetatice of them singing our 1st dance as it made it so special, much better then a CD.
Thanks again for your customer service (Niamh you were so helpful and understanding when I became very stressed!) and for the guys performance on the day, I cannot thank you enough.
