Happy New Year!Our blog has been quiet the past couple of years to say the least, however we’ll definitely get back on track next year! :)  We’ll not bore you with the details, but even thought we slowly got back to work as Covid restrictions gradually lifted, we took a step back from all of our online activity since the …

Brogan & Conor’s Wedding

We were back on the road again on Saturday night: so thanks to Brogan and Conor for inviting us along to play at their wedding reception.  With all the uncertainty about the Corona virus, it’s a worrying time for all of us; which brings a lot of worries for upcoming weddings.  Thankfully Brogan and Conor weren’t going to let the virus spoil their day, and the show definitely went on…

Never Gonna Give You Up!

Anna & Paddy’s Wedding

Back on the road last night for the first time in nearly five weeks!  That’s longest that we’ve ever went without playing since we started the band!  One of Anna and Paddy’s wedding guests inspired this blog title, as he asked us to play Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up!  We’re not sure if we’ve ever played it in the disco before, and if we have it’s been a long time!  So, as it was a bit unusual for us, we thought that would sort the blog title! (apologies for the crap header pic, we couldn’t find anything else!…

Grainne & Sean’s Wedding

We were back on the road for the first time in three weeks last night, and it felt like three months!  January must be getting to us, as we couldn’t think of one of our usual weird blog titles! lol  So, we had to just go with a predictable one for a change…

Lindsey & Wayne’s Wedding

We were on the road again last night for our first Sunday wedding of the year!  It also was our last wedding of the year too!  We’re back out again in The Royal Hotel in Cookstown for their end of year party, but as it was our last wedding, we thought we’d go for a predictable title for a change…

Caoimhe & Mickey’s Wedding

A belated Merry Christmas everyone!  As we’re so organised, we forgot to wish you all a Merry Christmas before the big day!  Oops!  We had a lovely few days off, but were back out on the road again last night at Caoimhe and Mickey’s wedding – thanks to both of them for inviting us along! :)  They had also invited nearly 300 guests! (including evening guests)  As far as we’re aware, that was the venue at full capacity: so it definitely was a squeeze getting everyone in…

We played our last Christmas party of the year for the fantastic Corick House Hotel and Spa on Saturday night.  It’s the first year that the venue has booked us to look after one of their Christmas parties, so thanks to the management for inviting us along to entertain their guests! :) It was actually our last gig before Christmas too…

Caroline & Mark’s Wedding

We were back on the road again last night for our last wedding before Christmas – thanks to Caroline and Mark for inviting us along to play a few tunes at their wedding reception.  They’ve a great honeymoon planned, including a trip to Canada: and that’s what inspired this blog title!  We’re not sure if they’re going to the French speaking parts, but Tout Juste Marié means Getting Married in French…

Ashlene & Brian’s Wedding

We finished our week in County Cavan on Saturday night, and our way down there was a massive and really bright moon in the sky!  So, as our blog titles are always really weird, we couldn’t resist going with a really cheesy one this time!  Please forgive us…

Roe Park Christmas Party 13/12/19

We were back in the brilliant Roe Park Resort Limavady last night for another Christmas party.  We love playing at Christmas parties, and have really enjoyed looking after them for the Roe Park over the past five years – it’s just a shame there’s no more this year, as we were only free for one or theirs due to other commitments.  Thanks again to the venue for having us in yet again – hopefully they will have us back in 2020! It’s not all bad though, we’ve another Christmas party in a different venue next Saturday…

Hillgrove Hotel Christmas Party 7/12/19

We played our first Christmas party this year in the wonderful Hillgrove Hotel in Monaghan on Saturday night. It’s the first time that the venue has booked us to play at one of their Christmas parties, so thanks to them for giving us the chance to entertain their party guests! :)

The place was looking very festive, and amazingly was laid out to comfortably accommodate the 340+ crowd without everyone squashed together!  No mean feat!   Also, everything was running like clockwork – we were scheduled to start at 10, and all the tables were served and finished at 9:45…

Julie Ann & Mark’s Wedding

We kicked our week off last night at Julie Ann and Mark’s wedding.  Our blog titles and pics are normally a bit weird, so that’s nothing new!  However, their choice of dessert inspired this post title!  They had chosen brandy baskets, which we haven’t seen in a long time, so we thought that would sort the blog title.  They were being sent to the tables just as we were loading in, and they looked tasty…

Colleen & Johnny’s Wedding

We had our third and final wedding of the week on Saturday night, thanks to Colleen and Johnny for inviting us along.  Their choice of first dance inspired this blog title.  They had chosen Rascal Flatt’s brilliant ‘Bless the Broken Road’, so we thought we’d go a wee bit more predictable than normal with the blog title…

Lauren & Conor’s Wedding

Second wedding of the week last night, and we were back in the stunning Lough Erne Resort.  It was Lauren and Conor’s big day, and their choice of disco inspired this blog title!  They had a chosen a DJ and Sax combo for their disco, which is the first time we’ve seen that at a wedding.  In fairness it sounded great, and Anton was great on the saxophone…

Shauna & Robert’s Wedding

We spent our Friday night in Ballymena at Shauna and Robert’s wedding reception.  It was actually Robert who inspired this blog title!  We were chatting to him again during the buffet, and asked was everything ok for him?  He replied “Yeah, everything is great.  Do you know Larry?”  Of course we didn’t know Larry, and were caught hook, line and sinker! lol  We replied “No, we don’t know Larry”, to which Robert replied “Well, I’m as happy as Larry!” lol  We thought it was really funny, and it also gave us an excuse to use a funny dog pic for our header…

Anup & James’ Wedding

We were on the road again on Saturday evening, and back in one of our favourite wee towns – Carlingford!  The groom inspired our typically unusual title for this post!  We heard the speeches while we were setting up, and James mentioned that he met his wife to be when they both worked in Enterprise.  So, after seeing their current ad campaign with Gerard Butler, that was our title sorted…

Julie-Ann & Dan’s Wedding

We had our third and final of last week’s weddings on Saturday evening, and one of the guests inspired this blog title.  We always ask for requests, and he came over looking some of The Rolling Stones.  So, we happily played our version of Honky Tonk Women – which we love playing!  In fairness to him he danced, and really seemed to enjoy the song.  Then he came over at the end saying that it was a great version, and Keef would be proud!  That made our night to get such a great compliment, so that was the blog title sorted…

Ruth & Zack’s Wedding

We were back on the road again last night, and Ruth and Zack’s choice of first dance inspired this blog title and pic.  They had picked Uncle Kracker’s beautiful song Smile, which was such a great choice!  However, the song title reminded of us of seeing the new Joker movie a few days ago, hence the unusual ‘smile’ pic above…

Lynne inspired this blog title, as she had picked a beautiful red wedding dress for her big day!  She looked every bit the stunning bride, and definitely a lady in red!  Surprisingly she didn’t pick Lady in Red as her first dance! lol…
