I hope all is well!
We just wanted to say a huge thanks for everything leading up to and on the wedding day, we were really impressed.
You really got everyone going and did a good mix of songs to cater for everyone, we had some really positive feedback also. It made the day that bit more special so thanks again for everything.
I've been meaning to get in touch with you and apologies its taken so long, we went straight on our honeymoon and have only just got back to England.
All the best for the future.

Eoghan and Steph Cronin Castlematyr Resort cork June 15 2019
Thank you so much for the amazing show ye put on, on Saturday night. We actually had never seen ye play before which made it extra special for us, and our guests were blown away by ye.
The amount of people including myself that had to look up at different stages to see if ye we’re actually singing or if ye were kidding us all by putting on an amazing pre recorded version was crazy. And that’s a testament to the quality that ye displayed and I’m sure continue to display.
Apologies about the first dance.... I’m sure you managed. And I’m no Patrick Swayze but I got by. Hope ye enjoyed it, let us know if ye need us to do a review or anything, I think I might have a video somewhere also that I can send on in due course.

I honestly think that Blacktye are the best wedding band in Ireland! We went to a live showcase and loved their sound. They were incredibly flexible in learning our first dance song. The dance floor was packed all night long. Their performance at the drinks was perfect. Moreover, they were very exceptional value for the package we went for. I would 100% recommend having them play at your wedding.
Zara Counihan Ballymagarvey July 24th 2018
Helen Behan June 8 2018 Keadeen Newbridge
Blacktye are more than a run-of-the mill wedding band. They are a real band that have such a good rapport with one another on stage it shines through and adds to the atmosphere. There is no awkwardness or cringeyness about them which we hsd found with other wedding bands that we went to see.They are so comfortable on stage I felt I had nothing to worry about. They were very entertaining all night long and their energy was infectious.They could read the crowd so well and played something for everybody from waltzes to raves! It was such a delight seeing my mother run to find her sister to waltz or jive to a particular song they might have loved as teenagers. She was so impressed and is still talking about it 3 weeks on. I feel like we were so lucky to have found them and would highly recommend Blacktye.
Tim And Elaine Cloughjordan House June 29 2018
Just a quick thank you once again to Blacktye for coming out and playing for our wedding on 29th in Cloughjordan! You guys were amazing. While the fine weather and venue probably kept a few outside, the hard core absolutely loved it.
We both loved your enthusiasm and tunes and have also had great feedback from guests. We particularly liked the dirty dancing jack up.
All the best!

Levi and Paul June 1 2018 Galway boat club Galway
just wanted to say again thank you so much
Here is a review, please post and share it on your pages.
We booked Blacktye from Australia. We never got to see them perform live but we took a risk and my goodness did it pay off. Darragh was helpful all the way through and I felt very relaxed.
You are by far the best band I have ever seen. A group of seriously talented musicians who are flawless. The mix of male and female voices, and the unexpected rapping was a treat. You got everyone on the dance floor and knew exactly how to work the crowd. Our guests haven’t stopped talking about the band. You had amazing interaction with the crowd and were the icing on the cake! You truly made our day and we will forever be grateful.
We booked them for the drinks reception, band and DJ. Thank you for everything. You have been so easy to deal with from start to finish.
All our love
Levi and Paul
We will come to your gig when we are next home.

My husband and I were lucky enough to book Darragh and the gang for our big day last week. They were so great that we felt sad to leave the reception to have to go and get our photos done, was too busy enjoying the music! All of Blacktye are just so friendly and accommodating, almost wish I could do it all over again just to hear them play. Would 100% recommend to anyone, they are worth every penny! Thanks again xx

I just wanted to say a big thanks on behalf of myself and Kevin! Everyone has been saying how good you guys were (unfortunately it appears we fed them too much and it therefore took a while and several drinks before they hit the floor!). I had a great night - haven't danced like that in ages and my legs ached the following day (the joys of ageing - you can still dance like you're 20 but wake up feeling 60).
Anyway thanks again!!

David and Siobhan Dromoland Castle August 18 2017
Sorry for the delay finally getting around to emailing people. Just a quick email to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding in Dromoland Castle. Its a good sign when the bride ignored everyone else and danced the night away.
We had many compliments regarding the band and everyone thought you guys were brilliant. I don't even think you took a break (or maybe that was just the bride) which never happens but so much appreciated if ye didn't . Its a lot of money to spend for a band to take a break.
I will be definitely be recommending you to anyone having a wedding
All the best and thanks again

Dunraven Arms Adare March 4th 2017
We found it really difficult to choose a wedding band as it's so hard to tell how the showcase will translate on the night. But Blacktye were absolutely brilliant. For us, the big thing was that they were fun and energetic - it's really clear from the videos on their Facebook page that they know how to keep the dancefloor full all night. They really didn't disappoint and I would so highly recommend them if you are looking for an entertaining, fun band who are great musicians and know how to interact with the crowd. Darragh was so helpful to deal with on every aspect of things and always happy to answer questions or be flexible to whatever we needed. The band were super professional on the night and worked really hard. Our dinner ended earlier than expected so they probably played for a longer time than usual but managed to keep the floor full and the tempo up all night. The music at the drinks reception was really great too. All of our guests really enjoyed them - it was so much fun, they are so decent and hardworking, I would really recommend them for your big day.
All the best,
Paddy And Bredge Odea Feb 11 2017
I just wanted to thank you for your amazing performance on our wedding day. We are still getting comments from our guests weeks later on how good you were.
You were a treat to deal with, nothing was too much trouble and you delivered an amazing show.
Except the dirty dancing bit, which drained every drop of blood from my body immediately. But i know everyone else really enjoyed it from the snapchat responses. I use the word "enjoy" ironically.
Hats off to all of your guys, well done and ill be sure to recommend you to anyone thats looking for a band in the future. If you ever need a backup dancer, make sure you don't come anywhere near me.
Thanks a million

Just a quick note on behalf of the staff across the Frank Keane Group - a massive thanks to you and each of the other band members for a fantastic night on Friday! Thanks also for interacting with the crowd and letting Andrew sing at the end. I’ve had 5 Christmas parties with work here and I have to say that was by far the best one. The entertainment was top class and the staff had only great words for you, you’ll be the talk of the canteens for the week!
I’m sure with the success of Friday night we’ll have a band again next year so I’ll be in touch.

It doesn't take a lot to get our friends dancing but you really had the dancefloor packed all night. Perfect selection of tunes, everyone loved it and loads of people have told us how good they thought you were. The 90's dance section, rhythm is a dancer etc was a particular highlight!!
Thanks again - Simon and Sarah

Sorry it's taken us a few weeks, have been meaning to get in touch but wifi was intermittent at best in Mexico.
We really appreciate the hard work you and the rest of the band put in to make the evening reception so much fun. Everyone had a great time and there were a lot of sore heads (and feet!) the next day, which we think is a good sign!!
Thanks again and good luck with all your upcoming weddings!

Gavin and I just wanted to drop a line to say a big warm and fuzzy 'THANK YOU'. You guys were amazing at our wedding. You really read the crowd and found what buttons to press to get them on the dance floor. Everyone was raving about the bands 90's music set and we loved it. The whole band were energetic and were really open and engaging with the crowd. No ordinary wedding band that's for sure! The DJ set was super. We were granted our wish and were given a fantastic 30 minute set dancing to Groove Armada, Prodigy, Chemical Bros etc! A real treat.
So please send our thanks to the rest of the band. We would recommend you guys any day.

Saturday (11th July)! You guys were outstanding and everyone has been
raving to us about how great ye were. You were so fun to have around and
were great at making sure the dance floor was full for the night. The
groom really enjoyed the antics and even though he put a hole through the
leg of his trousers doing his guitar slide across the dance floor, he
wouldn't change a thing!! I will be recommending you guys to anyone who
asks and spreading the word!!
Thanks again for helping make our day so memorable!
Helena and Ali June 14 Ballymagarvey 2015
I hope you are keeping well. Darragh, Ali & I just wanted to thank you all for such wonderful music on our wedding day. The ceremony music was out of this world. Kim sang so beautifully. It was amazing. Although, we unfortunately missed the music at the drinks reception, all of our guests were raving about it.
The evening music was AMAZING! We through what has to be described as an unconventional first dance song choice at you & you made it work!! It was fab! All of our friends & family danced the night away. So many people have told us that ye were the best wedding band they had seen & we second that.
Thanks so much to you all & all the very best for the future.
May 24th 2015 Fernhill Clonakilty
Now that the wedding is over, we've had time to reflect on what an amazing day we had.
We wanted to express our sincerest thanks for the great entertainment that you guys provided. Our friends and family were boogieing all night. Lots of people have mentioned how amazing you guys were and how diverse the music selection was. Rhythm is a dancer and Guns n roses in the same set - amazing. Also, thanks for the excellent rendition of 'we're going to be friends' for the first dance.
If there is anywhere that you want us to leave a short review or testimonial (or you can just use this email) then please let us know. I've also attached a few pictures of you guys.
Once again, THANK YOU!

Hi Darragh and co!
Steve and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Ye guys were amazing! The dance floor was jam-packed all night and being the seasoned wedding goers that we are, we can safely say that you don't see that very often! We are on honeymoon at the moment but we've received lots of messages from our friends saying how great ye were and talking to my mum yesterday she was still raving about ye! So you definitely appeal to all ages! Also we really appreciate you playing for so long, especially as you didn't get going until later than anticipated, what with the speeches etc.,so thanks for that.
One thing I would advise is to get a good big sign with the name Blacktye on it for the stage as so many people came up to me during the night wondering what your name was!
Anyway guys thanks for all your help and for making our wedding night such a super party!
Kate and Steve Ruane.

Hi Darragh and Band!
This is later than we intended, but Eoghan and I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you!!
We booked you straight after your showcase in Duffy, - you sounded brilliant, you had a great range of songs and you seemed to be having a great time, exactly what we wanted for our guests!
From the church, to reception music, band and Dj you were just fantastic - Thank you!!
You were so professional and helpful, not just on the night but right from the outset.
The dance floor was full the whole night long, infact two couples who attened our wedding, have made enquiries with you!
I'm sorry we didnt get to chat more on the night, it just went by in such a blur!
Wishing you and the band all the best for the future.

Picking a band is one if the hardest things to do when planning a wedding from abroad - we must have spent hours listening to different bands on the net, to the point they all started to sound the same - but we kept coming back to Blacktye!
We are delighted now with our choice and so many of our guests commented on how good ye where!
Thanks again for everything

I didn't get to say goodbye to you on Saturday so I just wanted to drop you a mail. You were fantastic last week, everyone said so. I couldn't have asked for better musicians and singers all throughout the day. You made my dad's nightmare letting him up as well! I'm raging it's all over, can't believe it's a week already. We're in Mumbai now and I've been mostly preoccupied with working out what excuse I Can come up with to do it all again 🙂
If you want feedback or testimonials done or anything, I'd be delighted to do one. Or I can go on one of the Wedding madso forums as rate you if you like 🙂
Thanks again, you were really brilliant.

I just wanted to send an email to you before we head off on honeymoon as I won't get the formal thank you out before we go on and I really wanted to say what a fantastic day we had. We both had a great time dancing to your fantastic band. We really enjoyed our first dance which you performed beautifully and you made sure what could have been a very stressful time, a wonderful and memorable dance. Your kindness, attention to detail and good humour ensured the evening ran smoothly.
Thank you for all you hard work in ensuring we had a very special day.

Just want to give a shout out and a huge thank you to all of Blacktye for an amazing day and night and for helping make the wedding perfect! The music was just perfect and the band were all a great laugh and everyone dancing on the floor and were great at getting the crowd going! I was the best man at the wedding in Kilronan and i cannot compliment them enough as out of all the weddings i have been too they have been by far the best band i have ever seen at a wedding and i will definitely be recommending them to everyone and hopefully when my own day comes i will be able to get them too!! 🙂 😀

Wedding in darver castle on march 16th 2013
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your help with the band. From day one, you were a pleasure to deal with. You made the whole process so easy. I got talking to Darragh before the band played that evening in Darver Castle. However, I never got talking to the band when they finished up.
My god they were superb. Will you thank each of them for me as I never got the chance to, The lead singer made such a great job of our first dance, and it was a tough one to crack. I will certainly be recommending you to friends.
Well done on such a professional operation from start to finish.
Just dropping a quick note now..
We are back in the land of the living !! the band were excellent on the day for the wedding , lots of people commented on both the church music and the main performance . My best friend Laura Callaghan just got engaged when we were away and is looking for the band also !!!!
I just wanted to thank the band for an amazing performance. They were absolutely fantastic. They rocked the house and kept everyone entertained all night. They were also gracious enough to allow one of our guest join in with them and sing and play the drums.
Edward Sommerville, who is the curator of Lough Cutra Estate, said it was the best band he had heard. He said that they were far better than all the other bands that have come to entertain during all of the weddings that had taken place there over the years. I think he will be recomending Blacktye for any potential bride and grooms planning there wedding there.
Again please send my thanks to all the band members, we had such a great time and the were outstanding, the best!
Thanks for all your help in organizing everything and should I ever need a band in Ireland, I'll know who to call.
All the best,
Hi Daragh & The Lads
Myself and Teresa wanted to drop you a quick line before we head on honeymoon. You were fantastic on Wednesday and all are guests said you were brilliant from start to finish. Happy New Year and wishing you all the best for 2010. And the lady that sang at the church was astonishing.
Jason & Teresa
We have now returned home after the excitement...
Our wedding and reception on the 1st of May at the Howth Golf Club. We would very much like to thank you and your band for the excellent show, in addition of course to the church music and disco. We may be a bit biased but we really have not seen so many people dance from the very first to last song at the wedding reception. We had many comments from our guests on just how good you were that night.
We would be please to provide a reference in the future if required.
Gavin & Edel Hindley
Firstly, sincere apologies
For not even speaking to you or the band on the night of our wedding. We were having such a good time dancing with the all the guests that we just forgot to say hello - never mind thank you!
We have had fantastic feedback from all our guests - they thought you were a brilliant band.
If you recall the evening, you will know that everyone enjoyed it so much because the dance floor was full ALL night!
It was so busy that my friends were telling me they had to dance on the carpet!
You judged the crowd really well and played everything we wanted including the cheesy dance music at the end!
Thank you all for being so professional and making it a great night.
All the best,
Ruth & Stephen
Just to say thanks a million for your music on Friday at the Royal Marine! Ye were fab! All the guests are still raving about ye! Full dance floor all night - perfect. Thanks so much and the Yorkshire tune was much appreciated!
Cliona & Nigel
A very belated note to say thank you and Blacktye for the great music last year. It was all amazing! Hope all is good with you and your keeping busy.
Derval and Neil
Hi Daragh and Blacktye,
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the huge part you played in our wedding on the 6 th June in Summerhill.
Everyone was raving about how great you were, and you remembered all the songs we wanted played, and learned new ones to perfection. You also kept everyone involved and up dancing. We especially loved the air guitar competition, and the dirty dancing bit.
It was really important to us to have a live band, and a good one at that. You guys exceeded our expectations, and I would recommend you to anyone.
Hazel and Ger
Apologies for the delay...
Thanking you for a wonderful day on Saturday July 2nd 2011, Myself and Lina were both delighted with how the day went. Everything was perfect from the church music right through until you finished as DJ. I received so much positive feedback. Its hard to know where to begin. Is there a place where you would like me to do a more substantial review?
Ironically enough the only negative part for us was that the weather was so nice and meant people wanted to stay out (again bitter sweet!), I was very impressed with how you and the band were actually able to beat the weather and encourage people to come in! I have no hesitations in recommending Blacktye to anyone that asks.
Thank you for making our day very special.
Mick & Lina
Can you pass this on to Darragh and the rest of the band please? Just to say thanks a million for everything on the 18th of June, they were absolutely brilliant.
I hope they get some bookings out of it!
Thanks very much.
Hi Ruth, Darragh & all from Blacktye
Just a quick note to thank you for making our wedding day so special from the church music and throughout the night!! You were amazing, all our guests are still talking about how great it was. I think the dance off to ACDC with the groom and bestman will hold many memories for everyone!
Thanks also for our surprise dance which was great fun. We will definitely be recomending you to all our friends in the future, thanks again for everything.
