    Have heard the fuzzy burgers are a excellent wedding band to get your guests out dancing!
    Has anyone any experience or opinions of them?
    Thanks in advance

    There a class band, lots of them, in white coats and banging out pretty much everything. Never heard a bad report on them.

    no help at all with them, I've not seen them but have heard of them. I would have considered them to be very different. Try get along to a show if you can.

    Yeah theyre different alright but good too! They are more of a wedding type band!
    I like the sound of the fuzzy burgers with the banjo and accordian, its a little bit different but was just wondering do they play stuff like uptown funk, happy by pharrell williams or other pop/rock songs like that?
    Thanks again for the help

    TBH your best given both a call and asking them. I only know of the FB cause there Cavan based which is where my band are. I'm sure they will answer all your questions and tell you when and where you can see them live if you need too.

    Just throwing in a recommendation for Phoenix. They are a 5 piece band in Cork, with a female vocalist. Have a look at their facebook page. I just had them at my 50th and they were awesome. Nothing was a problem and they rocked the joint. Very reasonable as well.

    Have a look at their gig guide as they play a lot of pubs etc., so you can preview them.

    Hi, we're looking for a great band that's available 24th September 2016 in Horetown House, Co. Wexford.

    A good mix needed - the classics for the early part of the night for the older crowd but then preferably lots of soul, alternative and indie stuff later on.

    Any recommendations or PMs welcome. Thanks.

    Hi

    Getting married in November in Clare (Limerick side). We have a DJ and I'm just looking for a band, our budget is on the lower side and I am aware this means less people. I'm thinking maybe a 2 piece. The main thing is that they get people up dancing.

    Anyone interested please PM.

    Thanks

    Anyone ever hear the Madison's play or been at a wedding they played at?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3 Maisy512


    Has anyone seen The Jabronis live? Particularly at a wedding? They are from Cork and seem to play regularly in The Old Oak. We are living in Dublin and they seem to mainly have Sunday night gigs in The Old Oak so we haven't been able to see them yet.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,639 ✭✭✭ Stu Redman

    Yes and yes, an absolutely top live band with a varied set list, I've seen them fill dance-floors a few times.

    Thanks for the headsup!

    Went ahead with booking Soul Purpose on the basis of their showcase and a friends recommendation (along with the boards seal of approval).

    They were comparably very good value, nice guys and most importantly great tunes. Can't wait.
