“Thank you so much for playing at our wedding last Friday. Ye were fantastic. The dancefloor was full for the night. I don't think I've heard people chanting for 'more more' before from a wedding band. We cannot recommend Jive Buddies enough. Thanks for making the night so enjoyable for us and all our guests :-)”

“From our very first meeting with Paul and the band, we knew this was the band we wanted playing at our wedding. The professionalism, kindness and support they offered us prior to and during our wedding was second to none.
We had a Galway and Kerry mixture and the boys had them all out on the floor for the night, the only time the floor was empty was when they took a well earned tea break.
Paul continued then with the Disco and played the perfect mix of music to suit the crowd.
2 weeks have gone by since our special day, our family and friends are still singing the bands praises.
We definitely chose the best band to play for our wedding, Paul K., Paul G., Eugene and Joe were (as the song goes) "Simply the Best".
Thank you all so much for entertaining our wedding party on our very special day.
Thank you all again so much.”

“Hi Paul, Just to say a big thank you for the wonderful music you provided at my daughter's wedding on the 21st August, 2015. You were on time, set up without any hassle, wonderful introduction to the happy couple to the dance floor and everything went seamlessly. Many many people commented on your variety of music and some actually thought it was a disco playing and not "live" music so good was the singing and the real talent of your group. They had personality and joined in with the fun of the evening.
I have no hesitation to refer your group for other weddings or events. Thank You again” - Kathleen, Barna, Galway
