Danced our way into 2016 on New Year 's Eve with the fab Jason O Callaghan and his band once again as per last year. Not a wedding on this occasion either, but a private party of magnitude in Strokestown Park House. Great band at a great event- Thanks Jason and fellow band members.????????????????????- Optimum Events- ww.optimumevents.ie

Hi Jason, just a quick message to say thank you for performing at our wedding last Friday in Kilkenny. Everyone commented on how great the music was, both in quality and variety. Wedding bands can be hit or miss but you certainly lived up to your reputation and were excellent from start to finish.
Response from The Irish Rat Pack
Thank you for trusting your special day to us, glad you were happy

We worked with Jason and the guys for our wedding party when we came home after getting married abroad. Everyone was on the dance floor from the outset which is always a great compliment to the band! The range of music featured was great, they managed the crowd fantastically and it was a brilliant night, everyone commented on how super the band was. Incredibly easy to deal with and their level of experience meant we didn't have to worry about any aspect of the music. Reliable, great performers and a super repetoire.

"Hi Jason,Thanks so much for a great night at our wedding in the Shelbourne, last Saturday week. You really brought out your A game in getting people back on the dance floor when they were drifting outside to the bar! Loved the routine with the three lads and you certainly made Tom happy with all those Frank Sinatra numbers! We had a brilliant night and it couldn't have happened without the band so thanks again."

The Wedding Knights played at our wedding on New Years Eve and they proved to be everything we wanted and more. They brought a fantastic set of songs, great professionalism, great humour and an amazing sound. The Dancefloor was full from the minute they started and at no stage did we have to worry about the atmosphere in the room, Jason had everybody up having a ball. The guest were blown away by the band and they really helped us have the special event that we had imagined.We can't recommend them highly enough! Thanks guys for a fantastic night!

Jason and the band played at our wedding last weekend and we were very impressed with both the professionalism and the personality they brought to the set. They were the best wedding band I have heard and I am at an age that all my friends are getting married. The dance floor was hopping all night and the interaction with the crowd was done with a deft touch: enough to get the laughs but not too much so that participants resented it. I've never left a testimonial before. That tells you all you need to know. A class act.

We booked the wedding knights for our wedding reception in Dunboyne Castle on 29th December 2011. This band were absolutely amazing and we would highly recommend them to any couples that are seeking a band for their wedding. Their choice of songs were brilliant as they really read the crowd well and played songs that the crowd wanted. This meant that the dancefloor was full all night long. In addition, this band were very interactive with the guests and had party pieces that involved everyone. We had an amazing wedding day and this band contributed in a big way to this special day. Absolutely brilliant band!! Thanks Jason for being so easy to work with and thanks again to the band for such a memorable wedding reception! All the best.

My then fiance and I saw these guys performing at an event and at another event. From those events we knew we had to have The Irish Rat Pack / Wedding Knights at our wedding. When booking our wedding we made sure we could have the church, venue and band we wanted on the date we wanted before going forward with setting the date. I even contacted them before their 2011 calendar was opened!!! On our big day we were not disappointed. They had everyone on the dance floor - even the people who never normally get on the dance floor! One week before my wedding a disk in my neck acted up. Jason was able to ensure that the first dance was short enough that i could get through it and had enough people on the floor mid way through it to ensure no one would notice if I had to leave. He was so accommodating. A few of our guests have already hinted that they will be looking for contact details to have the band play at their weddings. Can't submit a better testimonial than that!

We had Jason and Co at our wedding in June at Killashee House Hotel and they made our night complete. We found them very entertaining and they gave myself (the groom) and my best men a good workout while my new wife and bridesmaids played their part to. All our guests have since commented on how entertaining they were and how they all enjoyed dancing the night away to their music. Thanks Jason and the rest of the band for all the fun and frolicking.

Just wanted to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for the job you did at my wedding in the Shelbourne hotel recently. Never guessed my family would be so wild on the dance floor and loved the fact you covered all styles of music. Everyone has been raving about you guys since the night and I would recommend any brides to hire you guys in order to put your mind at rest for the big day. 100% the best band in Ireland, dont make a mistake and book these guys for your wedding. Thanks again guys.

If you want your dance floor packed all night I couldnt recommend the Irish Rate Pack enough. From the moment they started playing to the last song the dance floor was jam pack, we were delighted. The band were excellent and really made the night, all our guests commented on how good they were.

I recently booked the Irish Rat Pack for a 50th Birthday Party in Dublin. The band are exceptional, from the booking process right through to the performance. Their professionalism coupled with a stunning performance made the event. The comprihensive playlists, punctuality, vocals and image are a credit to them. I will certainly be using this band regularly in the future and would reccomend them above all bands i have used in the past. To the Irish Rat Pack - Thank you sincerely.

Had these guys for my wedding on 20th May in Druids Glen - easily the best wedding band I have ever heard. The dance floor was packed from start to finish and the improv in the middle where the groomsmen and bridesmaids performed a routine was the highlight of my night. All of our guests have said it was the best wedding ever!! Fantastic value for money - Thanks again Jason.

The Irish Rat Pack, What can we say? They are fantastic! We had the most amazing time at our wedding! The music was superb! Everyone danced for the whole night, great fun! From the professional meeting with Jason initially, to the agreement of the first dance, to the organised set up of the band equipment in the afternoon prior to the meal to an absolutely unforgetable night! Everyone commented on the 1st class band - The Irish Rat Pack. Thank you, Andrew & Róisín

What can I say.Booked the "Rat Pack" to do our wedding in the Shelbourne on Friday May 6th.We kinda heard they were good but that was an understatement!.They were absolutely brilliant, fantastic voices,brilliant musicians & great craic. We didn't impose to much on Jason with respect to choice of music we kinda of left it up to the band and we weren't disappointed.All our guests were well impressed.The "Blues brothers act went down a storm!".We both wish you all a heartfelt thanks for making our day feel that extra special for us and our guests.We will definitely use you guys again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you guys.Thanks for the memories, Tony & Pauline.

Where you find class, you'll find Jason O'Callaghan & the Irish Rat Pack. I organised two charity black tie (Harvest Moon Ball) events in Barberstown Castle in 2008 and 2009. A key component to these events was the band. Jason and his band did not let us down and the dancefloor was never empty. I booked them for the 2008 ball, and re-booked them again. Will book them the next time I'm organising an event that requires a band, and have recommended them to others for their events. Averil Larke

I knew Jason around town for years and was always a bit "yeah yeah whatever" when he started singing. Then I saw them play at a corp gig and was blown away. When it came to our wedding day we had to get them. Fortunately we were getting married on a Friday the 13th so they were available. Initially there was concern that the "class" might outdo the guests... but thankfully Jason is no looker... so no problem there. Seriously though. I can't recommend enough. So much so I'm looking forward to getting married again!

Hi Jason, just wanted to email you and thank you so much for making our big day so special. Our guests have said our wedding was the most fun they have had and the inter action between the band and the guests was amazing. Seeing my best men up there singing Elvis with you still makes tears run down my face. Your musicians were amazing and the set list just had the floor full all night. All we can say is that we can't wait for our kids to be old enough to get married so we can get them to book you and we can do it all again. Best thing we ever did was book you. Good luck in the future guys.

The Irish Rat Pack played at our wedding in Dromoland Castle on Friday, 19th March 2010. What a fantastic night, everyone had an absolute ball. Talk about the band getting the crowd going - I think the dance floor was full to the brim all night! Jason's choice of jacket really added to the "show" factor too. Great range of music for a wedding, super songs that appeal to pretty much everyone. Really reasonably priced too, for such a prominent band. I would highly recommend them to anyone- they made our night a roaring success.

Hi Jason, Thanks to both yourself and the band for such a good show everyone was complementing the music on the night you really came through to make it a special night and made both myself and Julie Ann look good in front of our guests :) . I had heard before we picked you that you change your music depending on the night to keep everyone up and dancing :), you don't disappoint the dance floor was full for the night i was amazed with the precision of the gig. If this was all you guys delivered on the night you guys would have been great but its the other little things and attention to detail that put you in a different league, everyone loved the blues brothers/Elvis routine with myself and the groomsmen/bestman but what also made it special was hearing how you played some songs for the children who were there, it made the parents and ourselves very happy. Thanks Again, P.S you were right about the first dance it was so much better live :)
