The O'Marleys were the perfect band for my Irish Father-in-law's 80th birthday party. They were so friendly and entertaining and all the guests loved the music. Communication before the event was easy and prompt after booking. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone interested.

Josie performed for us for a corporate St Patrick's Day celebration event. She was brilliant; thoroughly professional and detail focused in the run up, and went down a storm on the night. She was keen to get the music balance right and we had a mix of traditional Irish music with more contempoary rock and pop. Highly recommend!
