What event planners say about our suppliers


Hey Javier just want to say a big thank you for the amazing performance at our wedding on Sunday. Each and everyone we spoke to had no words to express how great it was, how much they loved the music and you guys. Thank you for your flexibility with the set. I know we made you change the timings to suit our plans, but it worked amazingly well, and we are so thankful for it.


You made our wedding memorable. Everything that you guys did was beyond our expectation. The performance was fantastic. No one could leave the dance floor. And guess what everyone has been talking about you guys and the fantabulous musical night you gifted us on our weeding day. We were at awe. Each and every guest enjoyed the night thoroughly. The music, light and sounds and moreover the connection you created with the crowd were beyond measure. Your passion showed in your performance. Thank you!


Really accommodating to our requests, so friendly and professional. Very talented!






How to choose a Irish band in London for your event



If you’re looking for the ideal Irish band for a Celebration in London, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter World Music Bands by price and location, as well as compare reviews, images and videos to help you make the right choice.

A good Irish band can get everyone up dancing at a special event, and could provide you with an evening that you will never forget. If you're looking for an Irish band for hire in London, here are 3 tips that you really should know before you part with your cash...

1. Choose the right Irish band

The nation's capital has a wide range of Irish bands, ranging from groups who perform traditional Celtic music, to more contemporary acts. You will want the right band if you are planning an event, so look for videos or music samples on their website before you book.

2. Find out about prices

You should always find out about prices before you make a final decision - especially if you are deciding between two or three different groups.

3. Find out how long the band will play

You will also want to contact the band's representative to find out how long the band will play for at your event, whether they take requests, and if they will take breaks throughout their set.
