Guys - we can't thank you enough for making our wedding reception so special. Our guests loved you, which I think was obvious from the dance moves! You really made it a night to remember for everyone and we received lots of great feedback about the music. We found it incredibly easy to deal with you, from our first email contact you were professional, accommodating and from the beginning it was clear that were in good hands which meant that the music was one less thing for this Bridezilla to stress about! We had a fantastic night and would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a stylish and fresh alternative to a traditional wedding band.

Hi there, I just wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you for performing at our alumni event last night.

Dear Cormac and guys, Just wanted to say thank you for the great evening you put on for my birthday party at The House last Saturday. You judged the evening just perfectly, really lifting everyone’s mood and guaranteeing the party lasted into the wee small hours. Everyone was impressed with the standards of the music and vocals, and I know for a fact that some people who haven’t danced in many years were moved to get up and groove! Wishing you every success, and renewed thanks,

Hi Cian and the band, A BIG thank you for performing at our wedding at Markree Castle 2 weeks ago. We can't thank you enough, ye were absolutely fab. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful you were and want to go see you perform in Dublin. We will highly recommend you to our friends for their weddings in the future!! Thanks also for letting our Bridesmaid, Lisa, sing 'At Last' with you - and thanks for learning that version for us! We thoroughly appreciate the effort involved, as fellow musicians, and enjoyed every moment. We were just saying, 2 weeks ago we were dancing at our wedding, and wonder where the time went! In fact, on the night it all just flew by so fast. We were caught up talking to guests perhaps more than our twinkle toes would have liked, but had a fabulous time and have many happy memories of the day. Thanks again, With best wishes,

We booked the jazz trio for the afternoon and the five piece for the evening - we have absolutely no regrets! The guys were fantastic from start to finish and this was highlighted by the full dance floor! We would recommend Velvet Lounge 100%.

I recently booked the smaller version (4 piece) of the Velvet Lounge band for a private party in a restaurant. The band were fantastic and perfect for the venue. All the guests, young and old were very happy with the music which was perfect for both listening to and dancing later on. I wouldn't have any hesitation recommending Cian and Cormac for any occasion.
