Reviews for Blacktye

Thanks so much for entertaining our guests on the big day. People are still raving about how fantastic you were and really enjoyed the mix of music you played. I was delighted that the first dance was so short...
We'll be sure to have you back for our Silver Wedding Anniversary!
Thanks again.
Graham & Catherine

Darragh et al, thank you all so much for being such an amazing wedding band for our wedding on New Year's Eve. You were so honest and upfront about how we should organise everything that was happening, father-daughter dance etc, and you were right, it all worked out beautifully and our guests were on the floor all night. Everyone has been asking about you. My husband and I really appreciate your contribution to the best night of our lives :-D

Hey Darragh Just wanted to send you a message to say thanks for Thursday, everyone has been raving about the band, ye were absolutely class and had the place hopping the whole night!!
Also thanks a million for DJing, we really appreciated that so many of the requests were played, especially with the late late notice that we gave you! Ye were great at keeping all the guests involved and the conga line into the bar was hillarious!!
Thanks again, we'll be recommending you to everyone!!
Kev and Emma

On behalf of Joanna and myself, I want to thank you for playing at our wedding last Saturday. It was a brilliant set that kept everyone on the floor all night...Great musicians and you're all great craic! Great version of our choice of first dance song too. Couldn't have been happier with our choice of band! Thanks!

Hi Darragh
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for Saturday (11th July)! You guys were outstanding and everyone has been raving to us about how great ye were. You were so fun to have around and were great at making sure the dance floor was full for the night. The groom really enjoyed the antics and even though he put a hole through the leg of his trousers doing his guitar slide across the dance floor, he wouldn't change a thing!! I will be recommending you guys to anyone who asks and spreading the word!!
Thanks again for helping make our day so memorable!
Best wishes

Hi Darragh,
I hope you are keeping well. Darragh, Ali & I just wanted to thank you all for such wonderful music on our wedding day. The ceremony music was out of this world. Kim sang so beautifully. It was amazing. Although, we unfortunately missed the music at the drinks reception, all of our guests were raving about it.

The evening music was AMAZING! We through what has to be described as an unconventional first dance song choice at you & you made it work!! It was fab! All of our friends & family danced the night away. So many people have told us that ye were the best wedding band they had seen & we second that.

Thanks so much to you all & all the very best for the future.
Kind regards,

Hi Darragh
Now that the wedding is over, we've had time to reflect on what an amazing day we had.
We wanted to express our sincerest thanks for the great entertainment that you guys provided. Our friends and family were boogieing all night. Lots of people have mentioned how amazing you guys were and how diverse the music selection was. Rhythm is a dancer and Guns n roses in the same set - amazing. Also, thanks for the excellent rendition of 'we're going to be friends' for the first dance.
If there is anywhere that you want us to leave a short review or testimonial (or you can just use this email) then please let us know. I've also attached a few pictures of you guys.
Once again, THANK YOU!
Aidan & Julia

Hi Darragh and co!
Steve and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Ye guys were amazing! The dance floor was jam-packed all night and being the seasoned wedding goers that we are, we can safely say that you don't see that very often! We are on honeymoon at the moment but we've received lots of messages from our friends saying how great ye were and talking to my mum yesterday she was still raving about ye! So you definitely appeal to all ages! Also we really appreciate you playing for so long, especially as you didn't get going until later than anticipated, what with the speeches etc.,so thanks for that.

One thing I would advise is to get a good big sign with the name Blacktye on it for the stage as so many people came up to me during the night wondering what your name was!

Anyway guys thanks for all your help and for making our wedding night such a super party!
Kate and Steve Ruane.

Hi Darragh and Band!
This is later than we intended, but Eoghan and I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you!!
We booked you straight after your showcase in Duffy, - you sounded brilliant, you had a great range of songs and you seemed to be having a great time, exactly what we wanted for our guests!
From the church, to reception music, band and Dj you were just fantastic - Thank you!!
You were so professional and helpful, not just on the night but right from the outset.
The dance floor was full the whole night long, infact two couples who attened our wedding, have made enquiries with you!
I'm sorry we didnt get to chat more on the night, it just went by in such a blur!

Wishing you and the band all the best for the future.
Breda and Eoghan

Hi Darragh,
Just a quick note to thank you and your band for the amazing music last weekend, my only regret is that I couldn't dance enough as everyone wanted to speak to me :)
You are certainly a top quality band and we have received so many compliments about the music.
All the best
Michelle and Criostoir

Hi Darragh,
Gavin and I just wanted to drop a line to say a big warm and fuzzy 'THANK YOU'. You guys were amazing at our wedding. You really read the crowd and found what buttons to press to get them on the dance floor. Everyone was raving about the bands 90's music set and we loved it. The whole band were energetic and were really open and engaging with the crowd. No ordinary wedding band that's for sure! The DJ set was super. We were granted our wish and were given a fantastic 30 minute set dancing to Groove Armada, Prodigy, Chemical Bros etc! A real treat. So please send our thanks to the rest of the band. We would recommend you guys any day. Best wishes,
Paula and Gavin. xx

Hey Darragh
Sorry I didn't get in contact after the wedding, we are just back from honeymoon and just wanted to get in touch to give you some great feedback. Myself and Cathal just wanted to thank you and all the band for such an amazing effort at our wedding. From the church, reception music, band and DJ, it was just perfect. You all definitely know how to get a party started and to keep up the momentum. We will definitely be recommending you to others. It helped make our day !!! Many people have already been asking about you, so expect some calls !!!! Regards,

Sandra McCrea.

Hi Daragh
Thanks for a great day and making it so special. The band were brilliant and we couldn't be happier about how everything went. Brilliant nights craic and we will definitely be recommending you to anyone who asks. Everyone loved the music.

Niall & Orla

Didn't get a chance before we went away.....
We're back from our Honeymoon now and just getting round to thanking everyone. I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and the rest of the band you guys were awesome! The dance floor was rocking from start to finish (told you it would be!) Had nothing but good feedback from everyone at the wedding, next time someone we know is thinking about getting married in Ireland I'll recommend you guys!
Once again from my wife & I, thank you for being part of what was most definitely the best night of our life's! Cheers.

Hi Darragh and the rest of the wonderfully talented members of Blacktye,
Thank you so much for playing Saturday at our wedding in Clon. I have to say I never danced as much in my life! Ye were outstanding ! Everybody commented on how great ye were.
Hope the long road back wasn't too bad.
Thanks again , Amy and Eoin

Hi Darrah, Just wanted to say thanks to you and the band for getting everyone dancing at our wedding on the 30th April. It doesn't take a lot to get our friends dancing but you really had the dancefloor packed all night. Perfect selection of tunes, everyone loved it and loads of people have told us how good they thought you were. The 90's dance section, rhythm is a dancer etc was a particular highlight!! Thanks again - Simon and Sarah

Thanks so much for the other night. Everybody thought yas were great and loved loved the saxophonist! I didn't get off the floor all night x Amy Kelly

Dear Darragh, We hope you are well. We just wanted to write and say thank you so much for making our day so special. Sorry it's taken us a few weeks, have been meaning to get in touch but wifi was intermittent at best in Mexico. We really appreciate the hard work you and the rest of the band put in to make the evening reception so much fun. Everyone had a great time and there were a lot of sore heads (and feet!) the next day, which we think is a good sign!! Thanks again and good luck with all your upcoming weddings! Take care, Lesley & Madthav

Hi Darragh Hope your doing well, Donna and myself are back in the states now and we just wanted to reach out and say thank you again for performing at our wedding at Kinnitty a couple weeks, You guys were beyond amazing! We got Lots and lots of compliments from our guests about your band. So again Thank you all so much!! Hope to see you at another wedding soon! Take Care Ryan and Donna
