Hi there, My partner and I are getting married on the 16th September 2017 in Bruton, Somerset. We would love to have an Irish band at our wedding reception, mainly to keep it lively and get people dancing - but also because I grew up listening to it. Are you available that weekend and if so could you please let me know the various hire options, costs and how long the sets are? We're very laid back so I'd like your guidance on set lists etc, but I am keen for some songs that everyone will know (Irish Rover, Tell me ma, maybe some Pogues etc). Is this something you could do? It would just be for the evening reception, possibly from 6 or 7pm. Thank you, Roisin
