Gossip were the first band we went to check out when organising our wedding & we booked them that night. Claire felt like a friend the minute we met her & was so easy to deal with on the run up to the wedding. On the day itself the band had everyone up on the dance floor & the only disappointment was when they reached the end of their set & had to go home. We could have listened & danced to them well into the early hours. Claire & Co., thanks for being a part of our amazing day xx

This was the best day of our lives - Claire and the band had everyone bouncing - the glasses were rattling and the furniture was jumping off the floor - thats not an exaggeration. They were brilliant - if they're free for your big day, book them quick.

Claire and the band were so fantastic on our wedding day, we had so many compliments on how great the band were and how amazing Claire's voice is. Claire was fab at getting people up to dance and the dance floor was never empty with these guys. It was an absolute pleasure to have Gossip Band on our special day, highly recommended ????

Myself and my husband Dave hired Gossip band for our wedding. We were so happy with the music they played during the evening. Claire has an amazing voice and the band rocked the venue out! We planned our wedding remotely from Canada, Claire was so responsive to emails which was so helpful in elivating some stress. Our guests are still talking about how great our band was! Couldn't recommend Gossip Band highly enough. Get them!!!!!!!

Claire sang at our ceremony and it was beautiful. She has such a powerful voice but yet gentle when needed. Everyone commented how it completed the ceremony. Then gossip sang for the party and it was a great party. They had everyone on the dance floor young and old. Even though she had a sore throat she played a blinder. She didn't once complain about it, I didn't even know, thats how good she is. If you want a full dance floor, you need this band.

Gossip Band were amazing at our wedding! Claire has such a soulful voice and there were people dancing all night while they performed. We had so many great comments after the wedding, all our guests seem to have enjoyed the entertainment so much and keep telling us how good Gossip were! Also found the price very reasonable and Claire was always very quick to respond to any queries we had and took great care to find out what kind of music we liked. If you're considering a wedding band we definitely recommend that you go with Gossip!
Response from Gossip Band
Aw guys thanks a mil for the message. You were so lovely to deal with. Wishing you both all the best xx

Claire and the gang are absolutely amazing. Claire brought an amazing amount of energy and an absolutely beautiful voice to both our church ceremony and reception! We booked Claire for the whole day from Church ceremony, drinks reception, the live band at the reception plus the live sax player and DJ set. Claire and the guys nailed the the whole day - the dance floor was full the whole time and people were raving about both her voice and the energy of the band. Claire went out of her way to meet all our requests and nothing was ever a problem, we even had the sax player accompany the DJ for the opening song which all our guests loved. A big thanks to Claire and the guys for an absolutely incredible performance - highly recommend!!

Isaac, We had the best time at your wedding. Your guests were just so much fun. You were both a pleasure to deal with and wishing you all the best in your new lives together :)

Hi Guys, Gerry and I would like to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding. A good band makes a wedding and without a doubt you were fantastic. Instead of looking local for a band we searched the length and breadth of Ireland to find the best band and we found that band in Dublin and you proved our decision right. Claire was an absolute lady and a pleasure to deal with. You can gauge how good a band is by the dance floor and these guys had the floor packed all night. Our guests were all commenting on how good the music and atmosphere was. We would highly recommend gossipband. Yvonne & Gerry

Claire and the lads were fantastic. Could not recommend them enough. Everyone has said to us since the wedding how fantastic the band were and how fantastic Claire and Kevin were in the church. Claire was so easy to deal with from day one. A true lady. Can not wait to go up to Dublin to see them play again!
Response from Gossip Band
Beautiful Anneka… We had a ball. Congrats again to you both xx

Having seen Gossip Band play at a friend's wedding in 2016, I knew we had to have them when we got married in 2017. I contacted Claire as soon as we set our date and luckily they were available. We booked Claire to sing at our civil ceremony and the band came that night. From the start, Claire was very professional. Anytime I contacted her, she responded immediately by email or phone. She was on hand to offer advice all along the way and very approachable. On the day, the music was fantastic during the ceremony and everyone commented on how great the band were that night. A great mix of songs for all age groups in the party. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Gossip Band to anyone having any type of event.
Response from Gossip Band
Aw lovely Sheila. Great day and night celebrating with you both and your guests xx

Gossip Band were fantastic! Claire is so personable and her energy is infectious.. from the first day I met her in a bar to talk about the wedding to a few days after the wedding she was so professional and responsive. Her attention to detail was just what I wanted. Someone who listened to my idea and gave it 100% and this was Gossip Band. Highly recommend this girl can sing and entertain. Claire and Gossip Band we love you and who highly recommend you for any event thank you ?? Thomas & Michelle
Response from Gossip Band
Michelle, I loved meeting you before the wedding and getting to chat properly. You were such a pleasure to deal with. We had so much fun all day celebrating with you all xx
Review by
We would highly recommend Gossip Band! Claire was so easy to deal with, she and the band went out of their way to play our first dance live - a song that isn't in their usual repertoire. They really got the crowd going. We had several guests remarking how good they were on the night. Book them!
Response from Gossip Band
Thank you so much. Great night xxxx
Review by
We cannot thank Claire and Gossip band enough for the amazing day they gave us. We were treated to beautiful music and Claire's amazing voice during our drinks reception and an incredible high energy, floor filling extravaganza for the evening show! Claire and the band are total pros, incredible musicians and all around amazing performers. Claire is also wonderful to deal with and made everything so easy and stress free. We felt so proud to be able to treat our guests to such a wonderful night of music and have received so many compliments on how much fun everyone had. Thank you Claire, you are simply marvelous!
Response from Gossip Band
Had an absolute ball with you all. What a party!!! x

We had Claire and the boys for our wedding on the 5th of August last. From start to finish they were just fantastic - we were planning the wedding from Australia so there was always a good wait before we heard back from anyone we emailed, but Claire was so prompt getting back to us, that combined with the videos we saw of them rocking everyone's wedding made it so easy to chose Gossip Band over everyone else! I honestly couldn't recommend them enough, they went out of their way to make things as easy as possible for us, and had absolutely everyone up dancing for the entire night. :)
Response from Gossip Band
Great fun on the Aran Islands with you all. So much fun xx
Review by
Well what can I say. Gossip Band recently played at my wedding and wow what a night that was. Claire took time to chat to us before and during her set. They were amazing I don't think there was one person who didn't make it onto the dance floor. We couldn't have been happier with the songs. Oldies and newbies all went down a strorm. We let her know our first dance and it was sorted. We didn't have to worry about a thing!
Response from Gossip Band
Fantastic night xx
Review by
A huge thanks to Claire and the rest of Gossip for their amazing job on our wedding day. Claire has a wonderful voice and is full of energy and enthusiasm. The band had the guests up dancing away the night early on. They were very professional as well. They accommodated us with our special requests and offered solid advice when they thought that a song choice may not work as well as a different song. All in all, we thought they were wonderful and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Thanks again Claire and Co.
Response from Gossip Band
Thank you so much for choosing us :)
Review by
WELL THE WORD IS DEFINETLY OUT. Gossip were absolutly brilliant. We hadnt got the biggest wedding in the world. But at no stage was the dance floor empthy. (ALWAYS THE SIGN OF A GREAT BAND.) They were the talk of the night. First dance was No other way by Paolo Nutini. Not a mainstream first dance song. But the band done a absolutly brilliant job. Claire also performed at the wedding ceremony for us and her voice was wonderful. Again unusual request for entrance music. But no problem for Claire. If anyone is currently looking for a band get out and see Gossip. YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. Once again many thanks Claire and the band for helping to make our day so special. Also thanks for the pics and videos.
Response from Gossip Band
Haha brilliant! Great day and night with you both x

Claire and the lads are excellent. Played exactly what we wanted and kept our guests on the dance floor all night! Claire was a pleasure to deal with from the very start and she had so much energy on the stage. Their price was very reasonable too. We were thrilled with them and would not hesitate to recommend Gossip Band to any couple.
Response from Gossip Band
Thank you soooo much x
Review by
The Gossip Band blew us away with their talent and energy! We could not have hoped for a better band to party the night away, they were excellent at selecting (and delivering) the best songs to keep the dance floor busy all night! We would highly recommend them to any happy couple hoping to keep their guests dancing through to the little hours, worth every cent! Thank you Claire and Co.
Response from Gossip Band
Thank you so much for the lovely message. Great night :)
Review by
We would highly recommend the Gossip Band. Claire dealt with us throughout, from the beginning when we went to see them gigging twice beforehand and right up to the wedding day itself and she is a lovely helpful girl. All our guests enjoyed the music and they really got the crowd going. Plenty of dancing was had. Wud have no hesitations recommending them.
Response from Gossip Band
Thank you so much for your lovely message. You were both so great to deal with :)

Claire & Gossip Band were fantastic! Couldn’t have been happier to have them as part of our special day. From first meeting Claire, we knew that we had to have her and the band playing our wedding. So helpful with song suggestions and wow did they have everyone on their feet all night!
Response from Gossip Band
Aw thanks a mil. We had a great night x
Review by
These guys were fantastic, they really made our night, the dance floor was never empty. It was so important to us to have a great band so we did a lot of research, Gossip are definitely the best in Ireland, if you are looking for a very talented group of people to make your wedding extra special you cannot go wrong with Gossip, they played something for everyone, the variety of music was incredible. They were a lovely bunch to deal with, great value for money and zero stress involved which makes a huge difference when planning a wedding. We highly recommend them and can't thank them enough.
Response from Gossip Band
Wow thank you so much. Such a lovely couple. We had a ball x
Review by
Claire & Gossip recently performed at my daughters wedding in St. John's Clontarf & Bellingham Castle...no words to describe their professionalism and ability to entrance the audience... 100% attendance on the dance floor all night, even those on crutches, Zimmer frames and dodgy hips! Seriously, Gossip were amazing and probably under priced... I also attended a 'women's only' event in a golf club recently, Gossip managed to have 150 'older' ladies on the dance floor for the duration, such is the scope of their repertoire and ability to adapt to the audience..... 100% magic x
Response from Gossip Band
What a day and night x

Gossip sang at my sisters Wedding in December 2016, Clare and the band were absolutely fantastic from the church to the dancing they were brilliant. Would definitely recommend them
Response from Gossip Band
We had a ball that night x
Review by
AMAZING!!!!! Wow from start to finish Claire and the lads had everyone up dancing. She was so interactive with all the guests that it was impossible to take a break, none of us wanted to miss a song!! Young or old, it didn't matter, there was a song for everyone and Claire made sure the bride and groom were the centre of attention throughout. I've never seen so many people get up out of their seats once the band started and didn't sit until they finished. The only downside was that they didn't play for longer...we would of happily listened/danced until the early early hours!!! Would highly recommend Gossip to any couple that are looking for a real party and a full dancefloor!
Response from Gossip Band
Aw we had a ball. Your guests were so much fun, What a night xx

I had the Gossip Band for my wedding in November 2016. Right from the get go Claire was fantastic, very promt reply on all emails and helped pick the songs for our ceremony. We booked a full days entertainment and so glad we did. Claire and the guys were fantastic all day. The dance floor was packed all night, and the guests couldnt stop talking about how good the band and DJ were. Cant recommend you guys enough, thank you so much for a memorable day.
Response from Gossip Band
Thank you so much :) Amazing day and night x

From the moment I emailed Claire and the band she was absolutely brilliant .She was totally accommodating and helpful in the run up to the wedding even though she only received our first dance about a week before the event… Our guests raved about the music and how great it was to have a female lead vocalist. We were under serious time restraint but Claire and the band only took a tiny break so they could pack in as much music as possible. The music on the night was fantastic and the bands enthusiasm was infectious,Glen and I had an amazing night and we cant thank Gossip enough
Response from Gossip Band
Eleanor and Glen, Thanks so much for the lovely review. We had a blast! What a great wedding,, Everyone was lovely. We wish you all the best in the future and please think of again for any upcoming events, Claire xx
Review by
Gossip band we're amazing! So glad we managed to book them for our wedding. We live in England and so everything was done over E-mail. Claire made everything so easy. The whole day ran so smoothly and I had comments from everyone to say how good the band were. It was lovely having Claire sing during our ceremony and learning our first dance! The dance floor was full the whole evening. The perfect set list for the night! I can't recommend Gossip Band enough!
Response from Gossip Band
Kias, Thanks so much for the review. Tt was an amazing day. We wish you all the best in the future. You're a great couple. Best wishes, Claire Malone - www.gossipband.ie

Thank you :)

Gossip Band where an amazing choice for my wedding. I was so happy with the band, I can't say there was a time the dance floor wasn't full. People are still asking about the band and complimenting them. I said to my husband before the wedding if we got a good response about the band we would know that our guests enjoyed the night, Everybody loved the band so I was over the moon our guests had a good night. I will highly recommend gossip band to any bride in the future ??

Claire was so helpful and professional throughout the planning and booking process, she really put my mind at ease. She advised and came up with ideas for the ceremony which were lovely touches. Her voice and the band's performance were amazing, I enjoyed it so much and got really good feedback from guests ,some compared her to Adele! The guitarist was brilliant as well. They really kept the party going. Claire got myself and my groom involved and I don't know how her voice sounded as fresh at the end as it did at the start of the day belting out big numbers! I am so impressed with them , I'd have no hesitation in recommending Claire and Gossip after my wedding .
Response from Gossip Band
Siobhan, Great to meet you both. Such a fun night xx Congrats ;)

A big thank you to Gossip band for making our wedding such a fun and special celebration! We met them at the RDS wedding fair and were delighted that they were playing a gig that night. As soon as we heard them play we were sold! The energy they created in the room was amazing, they got the whole crowd dancing and having fun which is exactly what we wanted for our wedding and they most certainly delivered! Claire, who sang at our ceremony and arrivals reception, has an amazing, unique and soulful voice which added to a very special atmosphere. Claire was joined by the band for the evening and they kept the dance floor full all night! As I told Claire I had to change in to slippers by midnight so that I could continue dancing!! You only had to look at how much fun everyone was having to know what a talented band they are. Claire was great at interacting with everyone and the band was all anyone talked about the next day over breakfast! It says a lot when you see relatives and friends, who you know rarely dance, on the dance floor nearly the whole night of your wedding! Truly magical and memorable, thanks again guys! Danielle & Simon xx
Response from Gossip Band
Guys, What a night. Your guests were great fun. Lots of great pics on our facebook pages ;) Thanks for having us xx
Review by
Claire & the band were great. Claire had a real positive happy approach which I really appreciated and it was easy to plan/organise the prep. Claire had great suggestions and ideas for songs and they learned our first dance song and they got it to a "T". Their music variety and energy had everyone up on the floor and I am so pleased to have had them as the soundtrack to the best day of my life. GREAT value for money also... (Claire also played at the church & drinks reception). True professional, great personality to deal with and on the day and, obv, cracking voice!
Response from Gossip Band
Thanks so much Eimear and John. We had a great day. You both were a pleasure to deal with. I actually have some great pics of you both from the stage. Il send on. Best wishes for the future and please think of Gossip again for any future events, Claire x

We booked Claire & Gossip band for our wedding.Claire sang at our Ceremony learning an unusual choice I think to walk down aisle to with just days notice. To say it was fantastic is an understatement. She also kept our guests entertained whilst we had photos done. That evening the whole band got together & from the first song the dance floor was filled & interaction with our guest amazing. Just cant thank you all enough for the whole day we & all our guests had a fantastic night. Hope our paths cross again in the future.Thanks guys trisha &mark
Response from Gossip Band
Thanks for such a fun night. You guys rock!! x

A week after my wedding I met up with friends who all said how incredible your band were. Two of them had both been married earlier in the year and lamented how Gossip was even better then their own wedding bands and for half the price! If anyone is looking for a professional, experienced, unpretentious and super talented wedding band then you've found them in Gossip. My advice would be to book them asap - you won't be disappointed. Thanks so much for making our night one heck of a party! You're already booked for the reunion in ten years time :-)

Brilliant Wedding! Great couple ;) Can't wait for the anniversary party ;)

I just want to provide you with some feedback on our wedding Band GOSSIP. They exceeded our expectation and how professional they were. There was very good interaction with Claire and the band with our guests and this was reflected with the dancing crowd on the dance floor from start to finish. They played everything that we wanted and were able to judge the crowd to perfection. I would recommend GOSSIP to anyone and can be confident they will not let you down. They are brilliant at what they do, professional musicians and singers. You should be proud of them and want to thank all of you for making our day special for us. There are 2 things that everyone talks about after a wedding and that is the meal and the music and both far exceeded our expectations. We wish you the best in the future and we will send any business we can your way.

Hi, Just wanted to say a massive thank you to the band particularly Claire for a brilliant day. We’re so happy we went with you guys, you really got the crowd going and it wasn’t an easy job cos we really didnt think we had a dancing crowd. Both old and young delighted with the music choice. I’ve been asked for your details for a letterkenny wedding in October and have happily passed them on so hopefully you’ll get another wedding out of it. Regards,
Response from Gossip Band
Thanks so much for having us ;) Great fun x

Just a quick note to say a big thank you for all your help organising the band and DJ for our wedding. Apologies for delay but we have just arrived back from our honeymoon on Friday and have been catching up with ourselves. We were delighted with Gossip and were really impressed with them, particularly the lead singer. They played some great music and had the dance floor full for the night. Our guests were very complimentary of them. We were very happy with the DJ as well and he played a good number of our requested songs. Thanks again and if there is anything we can do please let us know. Best wishes,
Response from Gossip Band
You are so welcome. Brilliant night xx

Just a quick message to say thank you very much for organising the band Gossip for us. They were absolutely fantastic, got everybody on the dance floor, which was very important to us both that the evening was enjoyed by all. Please give Claire a special thank you she went above and beyond what was required to mix in & get everybody singing, she was so entertaining. We will always try & book them for future events. Thanks again
Response from Gossip Band

We were absolutely delighted with the band’s performance on the night of our wedding. They were excellent and played to the crowd really well. We have had so many compliments from people about them, I hope you get some bookings from it! Not to single one person out but Clare did a superb job. She was really great at checking in with us and checking on small things on the night. What was very clear to us is that you are a team of professionals from start to finish and it was a pleasure dealing with you. Pleases pass on our thanks to them all. Many thanks again
Response from Gossip Band
You are so welcome. We had a blast xx
