How long does an Irish act play for on St Patrick's day?

On St Patrick's day and during St Patrick's week this is usually for 3 x 45 minute sets within a 3 hour period.

Do the acts provide their own PA system?

Yes. Usually by default, all acts are self contained and provide all of their own amplification.

>Top

Can I go and hear them perform before I book them?

If it's possible we'll arrange that for you, but it depends on how far ahead the date of your function is. The simplest and quickest way to get an idea of how some of our acts sound is via here.

Do your acts play their instruments live or do they use backing tracks?

Irish music is acoustic based, so the use of 'Karaoke' type backing tracks is not standard. With pop orientated Irish bands for some functions such as weddings, they are occasionally used, but only sparingly and to augment the act rather than as a substitute for live music.

My party is a happy event and I don’t want a lot of sad and dreary songs played nor too many traditional jigs and reels, can you make sure they keep it lively and happy?

>Top

Yes, of course. Our acts perform lots of lively songs for parties such as 'Whisky in the Jar', 'The Irish Rover', 'Galway Girl', 'Wagon Wheel', etc. Traditional music such as Jigs and Reels also works better with a crowd when played sparingly.

I will have lots of non Irish guests at my party so I don’t want to offend anyone with any Rebel songs, can you make sure this isn’t an issue?

Rebel songs are not played at any functions or gigs by our acts unless the booker has specifically asked for them, so rest assured that won’t be a problem!

Do the acts play requested songs on the night?

Certainly. If it's not on their song-list and it's essential to you that a specific song is played on the night, it's best to let us know at the time of booking and we'll organise (where possible) for the act to perform it for you.

I need to discuss this with you, can you call me?

Yes, we'd be glad to, please complete our callback form for a promptly returned call.

How do the acts dress when performing?

Depends on the event and venue. Smart casual is the norm. If it's a 'dressy' occasion the act will dress aptly.
