The Wild Turkeys played at our wedding on our night before bbq, they were fantastic and even let my dad up on stage to play a few tunes with them. Many of our guests had never been to Ireland before and loved the trad music, it was a great way to start our wedding weekend and welcome people. They are fantastic musicians, really easy to communicate with, arrived on time and were just lovely people. If you're looking for some trad music on your wedding day - I would 100% recommend them.

The Wild Turkeys played at our reception drinks in December for our Christmas wedding. The music was fantastic and all of our guests enjoyed! I also asked the guys if they wouldn’t mind playing for an additional 15 mins as I had pushed the reception drinks out by 15mins and this was no problem at all. Would highly recommend ????

The Wild Turkeys played as a three piece (fiddle, banjo and guitar) at the church ceremony and drinks reception for our wedding in October. Their music was genuinely one of the highlights of the day. We wanted mainly traditional music songs for the ceremony and the guys had a huge list of songs to choose from and were happy to facilitate our requests. They then played a great set of tunes at the drinks recpetion mixing instrumental trad, ballads and modern tunes. Couldn't have asked for more from them on the day, the lads were a great and our friends and family thought the music and singing was fantastic. Special thanks to Lynda for being a pleasure to deal in organising on the run up to the wedding and being extremely responsive on all our queries. Thanks again guys and have already recommended you to loads of people!

The Wild Turkeys played at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in September and I can honestly not recommend them enough! From start to finish Lynda was so lovely to deal with, advising on what instruments worked best together and how long to play for etc. They were really responsive compared to other suppliers which was a god send when trying to postpone and rearrange the wedding during covid. Lynda was also able to play during our wedding ceremony as she is classically trained which was fantastic. Our guests loved the music and it was a really nice touch to keep them entertained while we were off getting pictures taken. I would use them again in a heartbeat! X

We were so happy that The Wild Turkeys got to play our reception drinks. They added the perfect atmosphere to the occasion and it was lovely to hear the music float around the gardens of the venue while we had our pictures taken. Lynda is wonderful to deal with and couldn't have been more accommodating to us despite having to reschedule our day.

Brilliant musicians and fantastic singers, the Wild Turkeys were the perfect accompaniment to our wedding ceremony in Smock Alley Theatre. They also entertained our guests during our drinks reception and all our guests loved them, we received great feedback all day. Very easy to deal with and very helpful, they even learned to play the songs we wanted for our ceremony music. I cannot recommend enough.

Amazingly talented musicians and excellent at setting up the fun atmosphere for a wedding. We had their 3piece set up which was perfect for our small wedding at the end of August, they played during our Wedding drinks reception but would of worked equally well for after dinner, especially during these covid restrictions. Linda was helping us organise what would suit us on the day and was so helpful and friendly to deal with. I would book them again for any other occasion in the future for sure!!

The Wild Turkeys played at our wedding ceremony and we were SO happy with how everything went, we would definitely recommend them. They were really accommodating with the songs we wanted, and played a selection of music from classical to popular songs to trad. They were great to deal with in the run up to the wedding too. It all sounded amazing, we received so many compliments from guests on how beautiful the music was, it really made the ceremony!

This group of talented musicians played the music for the ceremony at our wedding. We had a beautiful mix of classisal pieces, both instrumental and voice and to mix it up they also played some lively traditional pieces which was a real treat for everyone on the day. We also had them play for our day two celebrations. They created such a lively happy athmosphere all night and had the crowd joining in singing and dancing all night long. They really made our wedding weekend extra special not just us but our guests also. Thank you so much guys.
