Don’t hesitate to book this band! They were a pleasure to deal with, very responsive from day one and flexible when we had to rearrange the wedding date. We booked the 3 piece drinks reception band and the 6 piece evening band and both were absolutely exceptional! They created a lovely relaxed atmosphere for the drinks reception and then had the dancefloor full for the whole night. Our guests were all very impressed with them and many singled them out as their favourite part of the day. Thanks to you all!

We chose Velvet Lounge as our wedding band having found them online. After watching several of their promo videos on repeat, we knew quickly that they were exactly what we had been looking for. Cormac was very responsive to any questions we had coming up to our big day. The music on the day was professional and of high quality, enjoyed by all. Velvet Lounge even learned our first dance song, which we will be forever grateful for. The DJ provided was top notch also - we had many questionable requests. Thanks so much again guys!

The Velvet Lounge Band are not your average wedding band, they really bring a different and very professional sound. Several guests including some musicians were very impressed with the 7 piece band. (Other options available). The dance floor was full from start to finish. We really enjoyed their set which reflected our preferences. Highly recommend this band.

Velvet Lounge were absolutely fantastic at our December wedding in Waterford Castle. We booked the jazz trio for cocktail hour and the 6 piece band for the night. They sounded so great and we were asked by almost every guest how we found such a great band. We would book Velvet Lounge a million times over for our wedding and highly recommend you book them for your special day too.

We booked the 6 piece Velvet Lounge for the evening entertainment after the wedding dinner. They were amazing from start to finish. Very professional. Silky smooth singing. Dance floor was full. Would love to book them again (if only!). And they were good to let me join in for a couple of songs as well (made our night).

We recently got married in Mount Juliet Estate in Kilkenny. We had Velvet Lounge as the first of two bands an were absolutely delighted. They are incredibly talented musicians - definitely not a typical wedding band. We had a very young crowd at the wedding and were worried that their style of music wouldn’t go down well. We were wrong, the dance floor was never empty. They were very fast at setting up and handled the change over of bands (which I understand is not a typical request) seamlessly. We couldn’t be happier.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! We had a small wedding - about 60 - and the band played after the meal and provided equipment so we were able to have a disco afterwards. They are brilliant musicians and performers and managed to create a big sound but also to keep it intimate. From the wedding dance to the closing number they were phenomenal. I had been a bit worried about people dancing but it just wasn't a problem - the energy was superb and the dance was full throughout. They have a brilliant repertoire and also turned out to be really sound. It was incredibly easy to deal with from the very first phone call. The advice they gave was spot-on and I was really glad of it as there were enough things to get stressed about. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys. I'd happily pay to see them on a night out. If you like the vibe go for it. They are brilliant and you won't regret it.

We couldn't have asked for a better band for our wedding! We booked their jazz trio for drinks reception, the 8-piece band for the evening after dinner and the late-night DJ and they set a great vibe for the whole event. We did have to reschedule once due to COVID and they were very responsive and worked with us along the way. Great communication and the setup and performance were seamless with our wedding schedule. We couldn't recommend them more highly!

Velvet Lounge Band was a great addition to our special day! With only one week's notice, they learned a new song for the father-daughter dance. All of our guests were impressed by the quality of the music and they kept everyone on the dance floor. Cormac was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them! Not to mention their DJ - WOW! Unexpected the DJ to play, unprompted, back-to-back hits that our guests just loved. They really made our day memorable!

Many thanks guys for a truly memorable evening! All our guests were raving about the music and the tip/top production values, and you kept the dance floor hopping with the best of vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, horns and trumpet! On a personal note, thanks so much for accommodating two quite specific and lesser known song requests at short notice- it was a blast to perform briefly with you guys. Final recommendation to those planning their wedding: if you are considering whether to book a 3, 4 5 or 6 piece band, go for as many as you can!! They give it their all and you won’t regret hiring this amazing crew for a magical night!

Absolutely fantastic band. Performance was excellent - we had 2 hours booked and they were great from beginning to end. The whole dance floor was up the whole time. We had them as a jazz trio as well during cocktails which was quite nice and really set the mood we were looking for. We also booked their DJ who was great for the rest of the night. The transition was seamless. Everything else was completely professional. Did not have to worry about a thing. We really enjoyed having them play our wedding and would recommend them as a band (6 piece is what we had) and the jazz trio as well as their DJ.

The Velvet Lounge Band was one of the first bands we found when looking for our wedding entertainment, and we were delighted that they were available for our date. They were everything we had hoped they would be. From the first dance right until the last song, they were non-stop entertainment. We specifically wanted a band with a brass element that would play the Rat Pack classics, and boy did they deliver. Peppered in throughout the set were contemporary hits and the dancefloor was never empty. They were extremely helpful, understanding, and responsive especially when we had to keep changing our booking to reflect the changing restrictions. The music was an important element to us and we would hire them 10 times over again if we could!

Absolutely outstanding! The swing and jazz tone was exactly what we were looking for with a few of the wedding classics thrown in to keep everybody happy. These guys are proper musicians with incredible talent, at one stage I felt like I was at a Paolo Nutini gig! If you're into your music and want the authenticity of some brass and wood with non-stop energy, Velvet Lounge will not dissapoint!

With a guest list already awash with musicians we wanted a professional act for our wedding reception, not lame cabaret versions of chart hits by a Jack-The-Lad covers band with delusions of grandeur. Velvet Lounge was a great choice. You don't tell them what to play, you book them for their extensive repertoire and their quick-thinking ability to sense what songs will work best for the audience on the night. Yes, they cost a bit more than most bands on the Irish wedding circuit and for good reason. Away from the wedding environment they are also session musicians in their own right. With clear communication from beginning to end, a straightforward payment process, a good PA system and their own stage lighting, Velvet Lounge turned up on time and gave a professional, polished, elegant, grown-up, fun performance that appealed to an audience of all ages. Our guests have been telling us in the weeks since how good they thought the band was. If you don't want to worry about the standard of your wedding's live entertainment, book this outfit. They will not disappoint.

The Velvet Lounge band were incredible, if you haven’t booked them by now, do it before it’s too late! Very professional and their set up is slick. They brought an up beat classy vibe to our wedding and the floor was full all night. We opted for the additional brass and it sounded amazing. They are a little less conventional but it’s their unique sound that brought a great buzz to our wedding!! Everyone commented on how great they were!

We searched for wedding bands for some time before coming across the Velvet Lounge Band. We were looking for a band that would be both versatile and lively. We also needed a band that could appeal to diverse age groups. They delivered, hitting all the marks for us on our wedding day. Although we had seen and liked their music online, the in-person live experience was something else. They had everyone enjoying themselves on the dance floor, playing a variety of modern classics. Their lead singer has a soulful, engaging voice and the band are masters of their craft. They played well known songs in their own inimitable and memorable style. A class act end to end. We thoroughly recommend them, particularly if you’re looking for something a little more unique to accompany your big day.

A band of the highest calibre. We were beyond delighted to be able to have the Velvet Lounge play at our wedding reception. We booked them back when covid wasn’t on the radar, despite all the twists and turns that the pandemic threw at us Cormac and Cian were extremely understanding and helpful. We weren’t sure whether or not to go ahead with having a band with a smaller number of guests, we were worried people might feel obliged to get up and dance. We were proven completely wrong - the band were one of the highlights of the day and had everyone on the dance floor both young and old for the evening. One of the most important elements of the day for us was the music, we put a lot of effort into deciding on a band and it really paid off. Everyone was raving about them the next day, a significant number of our guests were professional musicians all of whom commented on the high standard of performance. They really are a remarkable group of musicians, with Cormac on vocals you can’t go wrong. Not only do they make a super sound, they are super sound. We couldn’t recommend them more. This really isn’t your average wedding band, they are a top notch group. Stop looking - book now!

This review is a little late as we've had a busy few months since the wedding, but that delay does not reflect our enthusiasm for Velvet Lounge. We first Velvet Lounge playing in a bar next door to another wedding we were attending, and the gulf between them and that wedding's band was enormous. Great live music was, along with good food, the most important things we wanted for our wedding event. We booked them on that night. We encountered a number of challenges in carrying out our wedding plans. Our venue cancelled and we had to move dates and times at relatively short notice. Velvet Lounge were extremely understanding and thankfully were available to facilitate the change. They were also extremely easy to communicate with and patient as we went through the motions of stress-induced meltdown. On the night, the band was truly superb. We had only a few requests, and the band blew it out of the water. The set was incredibly tight: we had a number of professional musicians in our crowd who all commented how impressively well-tuned the band were as a group. Everyone who could, got up and danced. We had very high expectations of the band and they delivered in spectacular fashion. Thanks so much. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

They fulfilled all of my requests for the day. They were also extremely flexible as we changed the start time and we also ran a little late on the day. Cían and Cormac are very easy to work with.

We had the pleasure of having The Velvet Lounge play our wedding, on 01/12/18 and I could not recommend them enough to all future brides and grooms! For my husband and I, the quality of the music at our wedding was very important to us (second only to the quality of the food!). We had done a lot of research on bands, prior to the wedding and had been to numerous showcases. We saw the Velvet Lounge Band, in The Westin Hotel, before we booked them and they had the dancefloor full from the get go. They are a professional band and it is evident in the quality of their musicians and lead singer. At no point throughout the night was our dancefloor empty. Our guests were actually pleading for them to do one bad song, so they could sit down and have a rest! Guests were astounded by the Velvet Lounge Band and several commented they were one of the best wedding bands they had ever heard! We also had the jazz trio for our drinks reception and the Velvet Lounge Band DJ for after the band and they were fabulous! We couldn't recommend the Velvet Lounge Band enough to future brides and grooms. Regardless of your wedding guest demographics, or whether your guests enjoy pop, rock, swing, jazz, or country - they will love The Velvet Lounge Band. Our guests certainly did and even now, over a month later, our guests are still asking after them. I think that's a true testament to their quality of service. The band are fantastic and I can't recommend them enough. Thanks so much Cian, Cormac and the guys! You really made our night!

I want to take this opportunity to thank you both - Cian and Cormac - and the whole band for a wonderful evening of music. SO many people commented on the quality of the playing, the set choice, and the general interaction between yourselves and the guests. That you took the time to arrange a particular song for our first dance was utterly brilliant and really made our evening. The balance between the chilled out drinks reception trio, the perfectly judged post-dinner set (which had guests from 6 to 26 and 36 to 86 dancing joyously), and the late night DJ who had us on our feet till the small hours was just perfect. I couldn't recommend you guys highly enough. Absolutely superb. Thank you.

If you're reading this because you like the sound of the Velvets, take our advice - BOOK THEM NOW. We got married 6 weeks ago and the lads absolutely brought the house down. They could not (genuinely) have been more brilliant, friendly, responsive, fun and talented. The dance floor was full all night, from kids to oldies. Claire (my wife) and I spent the night dancing. The lads also learned a song for us and were so great about it. Because of their style (not a pop band, basically) we worried a little that it wouldn't be people's 'thing'. We knew it's the kind of music we dance to, but had a small concern about it being a bit too 'jazzy' for some people. The opposite was true: it brought everyone out of themselves and was totally accessible. Something to mention here is that it seems to me that with these guys you're getting proper 'gigging' musicians, not just a wedding band. They evidently love performing with each other, and have a brilliant set list. Cormac is such an extraordinary vocalist, and brings a touch of class to everything he sings. The lads arrived exactly when they said they would, nobody noticed them setting up, they gave us the nod at exactly the time we asked them to start, and they smashed it for 2.5 hours. I'm going on and on - you get the picture. We still smile when we think about the fun we had with these guys and you will not be disappointed. Now that you've booked the Velvets, can we come to your wedding?! Brian & Claire

Cormac was so accommodating,he even learned the clarinet to ensure our first dance was perfect. The band even played Christmas songs in such a beautiful style. Not only did the Velvet Lounge have classics,they also played modern hits in their own flawless style. They have such an eclectic repertoire that the dance floor was full for the night. All of our guests were so impressed,they all wanted to know their name. It was a dream come true to have the Velvet Lounge play at our wedding and would highly recommend them to everybody.

The Velvet Lounge are incredible! From the moment we came across their video online we knew that there wasn't going to be another band to top them. And we were right. They kept the dance floor full all night with their fantastic selection of music. People that we never expected to see on the dance floor were up there giving it socks. You couldn't help but dance. Guests were still speaking about them the next day and how fantastic they sounded. I wish we could do it all over again. They were a pleasure to deal with from the beginning and we would highly, highly recommend them to anyone on the lookout for a band.

We are so grateful we found the Velvet Lounge and they provided the most wonderful afternoon and evening of music at our wedding in Ballybeg ? they were a MASSIVE hit with absolutely everyone. We spent months searching for the perfect band and boy did they deliver! Their sound is flawless and their setlist is second to none. We will definitely be stopping into the Mint Bar soon for our fill of velvety swing!

This was honestly the best part of our wedding. Velvet Lounge's videos online, amazing as they are, do not do justice to what this band sounds like in person. From beginning to end we had excellent experiences with them. They were quick to respond to our initial contact - this is so important in terms of customer service. Any little questions/request we had, they got back to us about very quickly and accommodated very smoothly. We had specifics about our first dance song which were flawlessly executed. We sent them the link of the song, we wanted to change the tempo of the song and change a few lyrics of the song too - they did it all no problem. We asked them to make a couple of announcements, and they did this so wonderfully. WE also asked them for feedback about the the order in which to do things, and they were happy to oblige. They have so much wedding experience so it was great to hear their advice. Their setting up was super quick and subtle. We barely felt that they were in the background setting up when the reception began. Their togetherness as a band was perfect. Everyone was so surprised that this was not a music track, that this was not the radio or a DJ, that this was actually live. Every single guest commented on this. It was just amazing. I come from a musical background myself (I am a classically-trained cellist, and I only say this to boost my credibility as a feedback giver of this band) and I could not have enjoyed myself more at my own wedding. The DJ they provided as well was phenomenal - all the types of songs we wanted, and willing to take requests. We are so grateful to Velvet Lounge for making our celebration so special and perfect. We would hire them again and would recommend them to anyone who likes this type of music - jazzy, classy, fun and makes you want to dance. Thank you so very much Velvet Lounge!

Dear Velvet Lounge, We cannot thank you ALL enough! From the superb trio playing outdoors in unpredictable weather in the courtyard, to a fantastic band that kept everyone on the dance floor, for playing latin songs to keep all the Argentines happy and to your DJ for keeping the party going! The dance floor was full all night and our feet were killing us come 3am!Honestly our guests all commented on our "classy" trio and band! Thank you for your close contact leading up to the wedding, prompt replies to emails and for playing our first dance request it was a special song! We really appreciate you all travelling so far so late! We will definitely recommend you without doubt and hope to meet you again at any future events we host!

The Velvet Lounge Band were great. The guys were really easy to deal with and very responsive to any emails etc. Total professionals who put on a great performance and very accommodating in organising a DJ only a couple of weeks in advance and also allowing one of the bridal party to sing a few songs with the band at the last minute. We would happily recommend them and are delighted we chose them.

We were delighted with Velvet Lounge- they were teffific on the evening, had the crowd dancing, and the quality of their musicianship stands up to their videos on the website. They also were great when our nieces harangued them into playing a song with them, and it made the kids' day! Maybe I'm biased, but I think they are the best wedding band I've seen/heard ;)

If you're looking for a band that's unlike the others out there, I would highly recommend Velvet Lounge. We always knew we wanted an upbeat jazz band and have to say I knew from day one that this would be our wedding band. We had them for the reception as well, and that definitely set the ambience in the castle. Loved every single song played by them and our first dance was made more magical because of them Definitely would recommend these guys!

Finding a band for our wedding reception was quite difficult. Most bands we seen were quite repetitive so when we came across The Velvet Lounge Band we knew that we had found something special and unique. The Velvet Lounge provided an outstanding service from the initial enquiry to the wedding reception. The quality and professionalism was fantastic and both we and our guests loved the music being performed. The band very kindly agreed to sing our first dance which was not a song that they had performed before. They arranged the song brilliantly and having them sing our first dance was incredibly special and helped the natural flow of the evening. I couldn't recommend them enough. If we had to do it all again they would be our only choice.

If you are looking for a band you will never forget and one which will leave all of your guests stunned, look no further. We chose velvet trio due to the size of our venue and they honestly gave an unforgettable performance. We didn't have a large budget to work with but now having experienced their talent would have paid double. Their performance was wonderful and really set the mood for our wedding reception. Thank you Cormac and the band so much, we loved every minute.

A super smooth, talented band of musicians and vocalists who brought the 'wow factor' to our wedding. With a huge set-list to choose from, we gave them a hint of what we liked and they didn't fail to impress. Everyone of our guests had a ball on the dance floor, with a bit of bongo action the icing on the cake! Totally professional to deal with, they set up and were ready to go without us even noticing and left, with a smooth handover to our friend doing the DJing. The Velvet Lounge - totally brilliant!

Hi Cormac, I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you so much to you, Cian and the others for such a great time Saturday night. We had a ball and I couldn't tell you how many people asked who you were so hopefully you'll get some more bookings down south ???? The dance floor was full all night and we saw people up there who we never thought would bust a groove so easily. We had a few "experts" in the crowd who repetitively stressed how great you sounded and queried who exactly you were. The high point for us was you playing our first dance song exactly as we wanted and we got to show off some of our hard learned moves. Anyone who wants the crowd up all night and a lot of tired looking feet afterwards should have you top of their list. You were a pleasure to deal with all the way through from the first email, especially important to us since we were so far away organising. We wish you all the best for the future and hope to see you again, at another wedding. Many thanks, Danielle and Richard.
