Just wanted to say a big thank you for organising the Band & Dancers for our London event.
It was fabulous event, very much enjoyed by our Senior Management & Staff - the Band & Dancers very much being the highlight of the evening! Please pass on our thanks to both & have a great Easter!
Beryl and Paul.
Thank you so much for organising such an amazing Irish Piper as
Daithi for my dad’s funeral last *****day (** December 2016) – and at
such short notice! As the cortege entered the grave yard Daithi stood
respectfully at the top on the outer parameter waiting for us to
approach and then led us along the path down to the grave site while
playing. He then played after my father’s internment. It was truly
beautiful and everyone said it made the hairs on the back of their neck
stand on end it was so symbolically ceremonial and touching.
After speaking to Daithi prior to the funeral to arrange which music we’d like, he just sorted everything else himself like an absolute professional. I was worried when I didn’t immediately see him knowing he had traveled so far and that I didn’t even know the route the cortege would take through the graveyard. Daithi had everything under control on the day and knew exactly what he was doing. I can’t thank him enough. I just hope his return journey from Brighouse in West Yorkshire to London wasn’t too arduous in the same day.
Thank you both so much for facilitating me the honour to give my father the respectful send off he deserved. I won’t hesitate to recommend your services again.
Very best wishes.
Seán arrived on time and was very patient with all of our song requests. He is a great singer and we had such a fun evening thanks to him and his guitar. Would highly recommend.
Donnie and his partner were brilliant. They were great guys, got the
party going and responded to the music that was requested. Everyone at
the party commented on what a great duo they were. Would highly
Hi Sean, Just a note to thank you for playing on Saturday night. The
music was perfect, creating just the atmosphere I wanted. I particularly
want to thank you for learning and singing Wonderful Tonight, it was
lovely for my husband and I to be able to dance to it. Many of our
guests commented on how much they enjoyed your performance.
I just wanted to email as soon as possible after Saturday to say, a great big Thank you..... the Jacket Spuds were brilliant on Saturday night and really helped to make our party a great success, they played wonderfully and really enjoyed letting some of our guests get in on the singing act.... absolutely brilliant, everyone was asking how we found out about them.....so. Thank you ever so much for helping me to pull this together at such short notice.
You really made a massive contribution to a perfect night. I
would not hesitate in recommending you and have no doubt that I will be
calling on you again in the near future.
Regards and many thanks,
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for your help with arrangements, coming to the event with your band and giving us a brilliant performance on the Cruise night.
From the feedback everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, a truly memorable part of the evening.
I will be highly recommending the performance and passing on your contact details to a few colleagues from Brunel, if that is ok with you?.
I am going to send some photos of you from the evening via the Universities drop-off facility as the files are too large to send via email.
Thank you again for all your help, hopefully work with you again in the future.
Waxies Ceili Band are a class act that had our
wedding guests totally impressed as well as up and dancing. I wouldn't
hesitate to recommend them for any occasion.
Thanks again for everything.
I’d just like to say a big thank you for your performance at my
sisters 50th. Turned up in plenty of time and was set up for a prompt
start. 4 x 1hours sessions, with a huge choice of songs, even allowing
guests to sing. You really made it a memorable night and your
performance was talked about by everyone the following day. We would
highly recommend you for anyone looking for a live artist.
I just wanted to touch base and say thank you so much for all your efforts.
My mum would have been so happy at the way you got everyone together with your music.
All those there expressed how great a day you made it, making a sad occasion into a joyous one, which is what we wanted.
I have also passed on your details to various members of my friends and family so I guess it won't be to long until I hear you guys again.
So thank you again Sean from every one in the O'****** party.
Seán arrived on time and was very patient with all of our song requests. He is a great singer and we had such a fun evening thanks to him and his guitar. Would highly recommend.
Just had to email you today to let you know what an amazing night we all had last night.
Pete and the rest of the lads were fantastic! One of the best Irish bands I have heard this side of the pond.
Pete took the time to speak to myself and Mick in the interval and turned out they knew the same people in Brum, small world lol.
Thank you once again and thank you Donegal Express!
Just a note to thank you for playing on Saturday night. The music was
perfect, creating just the atmosphere I wanted. I particularly want to
thank you for learning and singing Wonderful Tonight, it was lovely for
my husband and I to be able to dance to it. Many of our guests commented
on how much they enjoyed your performance.
I would just like to thank the piper so much for today, it was a beautiful addition to my grandfathers funeral and I honestly couldn't fault it in any way.
Thank you again x
Just a quick note to say thank you to Phil, Nick and Jan for last night.
They were great and the feedback was very positive.
Their professionalism and willingness to please was much appreciated and I would have no hesitation in using them and your agency again.
Thanks again for everything.
Hello Sean ,
Thank you very much for Saturday night, we were so impressed and can recommend you highly.
Sean, I just wanted to say, sincere thanks to you guys for making the Wake on Friday a fantastic celebration for my Mum. You were the icing on the cake for us and we're very grateful! Also I hope Millwall have a good season.:-)
Hi Sean, Thank you very much for last Saturday, people had a great time and really enjoyed the music.
Just a quick line to say thank you for a great time on Saturday night.
Everyone enjoyed themselves and Richard and myself are just about recovering now.
My mother thought you were a great band so that's half the battle won.
Thanks again to you and the boys.
Vivienne and Richard.
Would just like to thank you in contributing to a great night, hope you enjoyed it as well.
Got some great feedback on your performance, thanks again.
I'd like to add that after my uncle passing away 3 months ago, listening to you perform his favourite song the town I loved so well brought an outpouring of emotion, it was a beautiful moment.
Just to let you know that Daithi did a great job and I certainly felt glad to have employed him for the service.
I received a lot of feedback on how fitting the pipes were. Thanks a million for your help. Please pass on my compliments to the man himself.
You and your band made my late Mothers funeral the most wonderful occasion I wanted it to be. Without you it would have been nice but you added a very special dynamic. I will be booking you again Sean but for a happier occasion.
Take care and thanks.
Can you please pass on my thanks to the guys for the show they put on Saturday night?
Everyone at the club has been raving about them they were not only great dancers but lovely people as well and nothing was too much trouble.
Many thanks once again,
Kevin M****** - General Manager.
Thank you very much for last night. A great success. Maybe not what you usually do ! But everyone enjoyed it enormously and there were no problems.
Just wanted to thank you for your help with sorting the band for our wedding day. Rock and Paddy were a great recommendation from you and everyone loved them.
If you could please pass on our thanks to them also as I didn't get to thank them when they finished (as far as I can remember thru the champagne haze!)
They really were fabulous and so many guests commented on how good they were. They really made the night.
We will definitely recommend them and your site to any brides to be that are looking for a band!
just a note to thank you and your team for supplying a wonderful piper for our wedding day.
Daithi was brilliant, professional and went the extra steps to make our day truly memorable.
He was organised and had a great manner in conducting his work. We will highly recommend you all for anyone who requires your services.
Darren & Kellie.
Hey Sean, just to say thanks again for yesterday - you were really fantastic.
Everyone talking about how great you both were. We raised over £2,600.
We'll definitely do this again next year and book you again.
James (Our Lady of Victories Club).
We're just back from Thailand and back to normal after our celebrations, just wanted to say a massive thank you to the dancers who performed at our civil partnership, they were fantastic, really great, us and our guests absolutely loved them, they did a fabulous job, really made such a fantastic moment in our very special day, and what a lovely friendly team they were, a real credit to you.
Been away for a while, just like to say thanks to you and the boys, it was fitting for dear old Dads send off.
Thanks a million,
I want to start by saying thank you very much for the excellent entertainment you provided me with on Saturday Night.
Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the feedback has been positively free flowing since. If you could pass my many thanks onto the band and the dancers that would be much appreciated, as they really put on an outstanding performance.
Following on from the positive feedback, I have been asked to enquire about getting the band back for a second round. Could you tell me their availability in October and November?
Also are they available for St. Patrick's Day next year?
Many Thanks & Kind Regards,
Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to you and your dancers - they were fantastic and made our wedding a very special occasion.
They were fun and all the guests complimented them and thought that they were a fantastic idea and so talented.
Many many thanks and please tell them all that the bride and groom are so happy with their performances.
Peter & Lisa J.
Dear Performers of the Recent Dance Festival,
I would just like to say thank you all so much for your hard work and for putting on an amazing show. I have heard wonderful feedback that people in the crowd were saying how much they enjoyed the Irish Dancer performances!
I hope you enjoyed the day!
I just wanted to say thank you for organising the DJ for our party on Saturday. He was great, he played everything that we asked him too and had a great selection of music and was happy to oblige to our requests of 'turn it up', 'turn it down', 'Dad wants to sing a song so stop the music', 'can we have more waltzes', 'more jives', 'let's have a break from the Irish music' and he accommodated all our requests willingly and still said at the end of the night what a lovely family we are! So thank you.
I just wanted to say a really Big Thank you for you and Dave performing at Dad's Wake.
The bagpipe music was just so beautiful and emotional going into the church and was very poignant to the occasion.
Then you both playing was really fantastic and really great music to listen to and sing to.
Dad would have really enjoyed it too! Absolutely great!
Once again Big Thank you and will definitely stay in touch and use you again.
I spoke to your administrator today however I thought I would email you as well.
I wanted to express my thanks for the wonderful service provided by your company. The piper was fantastic, he was wonderful and did and excellent job.
The dancers were also great!
Everyone was hypnotised at their dancing and both the piper and dancers added a special touch to the day.
I would like to thank you and your fellow musicians for the great send off that you gave to my father, the comments that I have received have all been how great the music was and how much my father would have approved and to see my mother happy at the end of a sad day for us all is a testament to you and your band.
I will always remember that day and if I am ever asked do I know of a good Irish band I will have no hesitation to mention you.
Once again on behalf of my family I thank you and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.
Just a quick note to say thank you for Saturday – you went down a storm as you could probably tell and thank you for doing your bit to include the Americans.
C**** and T**** (bride and groom) were delighted.
If you ever require more formal feedback for website, promotion or
whatever do let us know as we'd be very happy to help.
All the very best and who knows, may be in touch for the next wedding.
Just wanted to drop you a short line to say how much we all enjoyed yesterday for my Dad's birthday.
We all know he enjoyed it as he was chatting about you both when the nurses were putting him to bed.
Hope Larry enjoyed the rest of his birthday. It was good to meet you and hopefully we will meet again in the future.
I wanted to thank you and your band for making my 40th party a fantastic bash! The guys were brilliant and everyone had a really good time.
I thought I'd also let you know that my grandfather, who passed away many years ago, was a big fan of your Mrs Thatcher song.
It brought back fond memories to me when I found out that it was you that performed it.
Thanks again, and pass on my regards and compliments to The band.
Hope you are well. I want to thank you so so much for the wonderful job you did for me on my wedding day.
You were truly wonderful and really kicked off the day in style for us.
All the guests loved your set and have been full of compliments for you.
You were perfect, I couldn't have been happier.
Many thanks again.
Greetings From The Land Down Under!
I have just received my three CD pack ordered from your website – thank you! I was a cruise tourist Finland/Stockholm and heard you and your band. It was a memorable evening.
You sang two Eric Bogle songs ‘on request’ which I thought was pretty amazing.
Anyway, it made a homesick Australian very happy and I thank you for your powerful performance that evening. Have you toured in Australia?
If you have, I’m sorry we missed you; if not when then? Keep singing!
Best regards, and best wishes.
Just a quick email to let you know that the Irish dancers were brilliant on Sunday evening and the guests really enjoyed the show.
Janice T Events Manager.
Thanks for putting on a great show yesterday, and including some of my favourites.
We got loads of compliments from our guests and what you played was just right for a sunny Saturday afternoon.
Hope you made the evening gig in plenty of time,
Steve and D.
Good morning Sean
Just thought I would write and say thank you for the Fantastic Band you supplied for my Fathers 70th Birthday Party on Saturday.
They arrived on time played some excellent music and really got the party going, I know everyone really enjoyed them.
As for the booking process you made this painless, I certainly would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family.
Once again Thank You.
just wanted to say a big thank you for the piper you provided for my Dad's funeral yesterday.
He was amazing and everyone commented on how good he was and made the occasion.
Thanks for great evening! Really appreciate it. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. Good luck for the future.
Dear Sean and band,
Thank you very very much for a fantastic set. I really enjoyed myself and so did my friends and family. Unfortunately some of them just won't dance whatever the situation however they all loved listening to you.
I hope you didn't mind my dad staying on the mike for so long, he is terrible at getting off the stage! It was lovely all the same to have him sing at my wedding.
We sorted the speakers out as well so all and all a great day.
Once again thanks a million and hopefully we'll meet again one day soon.
Louise & R.
Would like to say a big thank you to you and your band for making Mum's wake a great celebration, she would have been thrilled with the music and I am sure she was tapping her feet away to the play list.
Once again a big thank you from all the family for making the day a true celebration.
We refer to the event held at ****** ****** and Social Club on Friday 2nd May 2008 and our subsequent telephone conversation on Tuesday 6th May 2008.
As requested we write to affirm our complete satisfaction with the service provided by the Sean Brady Duo.
The mix of Irish Music and Song was well chosen and seamless.
The performance was unbelievably professional and many of the attendees also enjoyed the somewhat dry humour and joshing remarks made in-between dances, most especially “John Travolta & Olivia Newton John”.
More quips and sarcastic remarks would have gone down well but all in all this was a faultless performance by two very professional gentlemen.
We would most certainly hire their services at any forthcoming functions that our Company might arrange, either privately or on a Company basis.
Vicky L Financial Director.
Thanks so much for the fantastic performances, I overheard a few members talking about it the next day and you received rave reviews.
Kirsty M Social Events Co-ordinator.
Sean - all my family and I would like you to know and for you to pass on to the band that they were fantastic at my mother's wake yesterday - they made it the perfect send off for her for her family and friends all of whom have been steeped in the traditional music and the ballads and songs of Ireland - can't praise them enough - they made the day - thanks, and thanks again -
