We booked the lads for our wedding  after seeing them play our work Christmas party last year. Just like the Christmas party, they went down a storm at our reception.

They managed to strike the perfect balance of genres (without resorting to the worn out wedding standards we’ve all heard a million times) to keep the crowd on the dance floor for the night. The set list covers early rock ‘n’ roll up to modern pop and everything in between.

They were extremely accommodating in learning our first dance song (from a relatively obscure band) and played it to perfection on the night. A genuinely nice bunch of lads and a professional act that are very easy to deal with.

Firstly, thanks to you and the lads for playing for us and our guests in the Summerhill on the 11th. The first dance sounded great and considering I suggested it kind of late I think ye did a great job on it.

You were very professional in all our dealings, very good at getting back in touch with us via e-mail and phone, that was much appreciated.

The band has a very broad repertoire of songs, all of which suit your style and sound very well. We could not fault After Hours on sound, that’s for sure and it’s obviously very very important. Ye all seemed to be passionate about performing which is very positive. Ye set up quickly and got started without any delay, there was no fuss from start to finish.

Thanks for organising the ‘throwing of the bouquet’, I hadn’t thought of doing it, but ye made it good fun and interacted well with guests. After Hours ensured we got a good send off at the end of the night inviting guests onto the floor making a circle around the bridal party/train (etc…).

The DJ was brilliant, great selection of songs, well chosen for the crowd on the floor at that stage. We could have danced all night to him…very entertaining. Great job!!!

Many of our guests complimented the band and DJ, it was nice that we could say ye were a Wicklow-based band.

In comparison to other bands we checked out we thought After Hours offered great value for money and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends etc. We will be looking out for ye in the future and watching ye play every now and then.

Thanks again for playing for us on our wedding day, wishing After Hours every success in the future,

Finola & Stephen

 

We would like to say a massive thanks to After Hours for playing at our wedding in December 2014 in Hotel Kilkenny. The floor was hopping all night and everyone both young and old were really impressed with both the band and DJ.
The guys were all very professional and easy to deal with especially considering that we planned the wedding from Australia.
We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great band to play at any function.
Again thanks a million guys for a great night and we wish you all the best in the future.

We had After Hours for our wedding in Dublin in March 2013 and they blew the roof off the venue. Everyone commented on how the dancefloor was completely rocking and full for the entire set list, and comments from guests about the band were all so positive.

We couldn’t have asked for more from any band, the energy in the room was fantastic and it made the night for a lot of guests. The DJ had an easy job afterwards!

Also, they learned our first dance song especially for our wedding (The Pogues, Rainy Night in Soho) and did a wonderful job. We can’t recommend them highly enough.

After Hours played our wedding in June 2014 and had the crowd rocking all night long! Both young and old put on their dancing shoes and bopped the night away.They gauged the crowd really well and played an excellent mix that kept the floor filled. During the break they checked in with us to make sure everything was to our liking and asked for any specific requests for the second set.

The icing on the cake was that they learned and played a fantastic version of our first dance especially for our big day.We would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending After Hours to play your wedding….provided you have good taste in music and like to party!!

A massive thanks to After Hours for playing our wedding they were amazing. They travelled to Kinsale for us and learned our first dance. They were brilliant and kept the dance floor jointed all night. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough, hopefully see you in Cork again soon guys!!

A big thanks to After Hours who played at our wedding in February of this year. The selection of music was brilliant and they had everyone on the dance floor from the first song.

We found them to be very professional and obliging in learning new songs especially for our big day. We were both delighted with the band and would recommend them highly.

After Hours played at Glenealy Hurling Club Dinner Dance on Friday 18th March at The Grand Hotel. I just want to say a very BIG thank you to the band for a fantastic night.  The dance floor was never empty.  You were absolutely excellent and very accommodating to our own ‘resident singers’.

We wish you every success in the future and thanks again.

Thanks a million to After Hours for playing at our wedding, we wanted a band that would fill the dance floor, and that’s exactly what we got! The songs they played were loved by all of our family and friends – young and old.

They really listened to us and what we wanted for the day, and catered for all age groups. They learned some songs especially for us, which made it very personal. We would definitely recommend them and will be looking out for any local gigs that they play, so that we can see them again!

The first thing you notice about After Hours is that they effortlessly bring your favourite tunes to life. Never failing to impress their audience, the band will have your dancefloor hopping instantly, with even the most dancefloor shy of guests found inventing “moves” on the tiles!

If you love music, dream of a guaranteed night to remember for you and your guest, and a full dance floor, After Hours will deliver, every-time. The band’s polished performance, intoxicating sound, and powerful vocals, ensure they will be around for a long time to come … Thank you so much for making my brothers wedding a night to remember x Loved the Stone Roses and the Killers!!

After Hours were brilliant. They played a stormer at our wedding and the dance floor was jammed the whole night. All the guests were very impressed both in your super polished sound and repertoire and many ladies also commented on your “easy on the eye” looks as well!!

We were impressed at your professionalism and ability to learn a good number of new songs at very short notice and then play them like you knew them for years! We can’t recommend you guys highly enough. It was a pleasure to have you at our wedding!

After Hours recently played our corporate charity event in aid of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin and Medical Research Centre. In the build up to the event the band were more than helpful in accommodating our needs and getting involved on the night.

They played a great mix of songs that appealed to the wide-ranging age group that was present on the night. I received so many compliments relating to the band from our colleagues, clients, suppliers, families and friends; they really did appeal to everyone there!!

I will have no hesitation in recommending the guys to colleagues and/or friends for any upcoming events they may be organising! A truly great live band! P.S. You all had a few female admirers by the end of the night too!! ;)

Couldn’t recommend After Hours highly enough. Our original band (through absolutely no fault of their own) had to cancel 2 days before our wedding. After Hours stepped in at very short notice and were amazing.

Setup was prompt and entirely fuss-free. The music selection was perfectly pitched to suit our guests. A lot of our guests would have musical backgrounds and After Hours did not disappoint. Every song was note perfect.

People danced for their entire set and could not stop talking about how wonderful the band was. One guest even got details to book them for her sister’s wedding! A superb choice for any event.

Having heard After Hours’ set, I loved their current song selections and the music was executed brilliantly. I knew that I would love to book them for a dinner dance that I was organising, but needed to query whether their modern set would translate to a different audience. I need not have worried. Having communicated with them via Facebook (correspondence was always prompt and efficient), I was assured that they would indeed be able to provide a set that would suit a different demographic.
I found After Hours to be entirely professional and flexible. Their setting up was non-intrusive. The set was lively and varied, appealing to all ages. Technically, they are great musicians with great vocals. They have a great sound and the quality of sound is excellent also. They played requests when asked, adapting to the audience’s tastes. They were always mindful of the function that they were entertaining.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending After Hours for any function and look forward to hearing them again soon.

After Hours were excellent, from the first dance,  for which they learned our choice of song, until the end of the night they managed to keep people up and dancing. Their set list was nice and varied covering lots of our favourites with some great interpretations of well known hits.
They were incredibly professional both on the day and in the run up to the wedding. We wholeheartedly recommend this band for any event you might be planning. They are amazing.

 

Karen & David McNally

 

We wanted a packed dance floor all night at our wedding, so our band had to be ‘After Hours’. They had our guests, both young and old on their feet until the wee hours, with their diverse and fun playlist.
It was no problem for them to learn our first dance choice of song, which they made their own and played beautifully. With hits from the swingin’ 60s through to more current rock anthems, every taste was catered for, and the party atmosphere was electric!
