We guarantee to fill your dance floor. Dont believe us? Just check out our blog here. You will see how we pack dance floors across Ireland every week!!
Midnight Sounds is different to most wedding bands. We tailor the band to suit your requirements.

Michelle & Stephen, Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel, 25th July 2014
A relatively local weding tonight for Midnight Sounds. Michelle and Stephen had their wedding reception at the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel and had our four-piece band. We very often get asked what drops out of the band for our four-piece version. In this case we didn’t have saxophone or trumpet (brass section) so Dave and Jane were given a well deserved night off! The four piece worked out very well in this venue. This is not always the case, particularly in bigger rooms. Midnight Sounds is one of the few wedding bands in Ireland who can adapt our band size to suit your budget and requirements so do have a chat with us about what you need. For their first dance, Michelle and Stephen chose the beautiful “How will I love you” by Ellie Goulding as their first dance and we used the original recorded as requested for this one. Everyone has their own preference for their first dance. Stephen and Michelle wanted to hear the song exactly as they were used to. Another busy dance floor and a great night for Midnight Sounds. ( Wedding Bands Ireland).
Siobhan & Tommy, Ocean Sands Hotel, Sligo, 17th July 2014
Another trip west for Midnight Sounds Wedding Band. This week we had the pleasure of travelling to the beautiful Enniscrone for Siobhan and Tommy’s wedding. Mark and Dave welcomed guests to the drink reception with some smooth background jazz before our full six-piece band filled the dancefloor into the wee hours of the morning. The Ocean Sands Hotel was a beautiful setting with the ballroom actually overlooking the sea to provide a stunning backdrop to the dancefloor. Siobhan and Tommy had Ed Sheeran’s “Kiss Me” as their first dance. We must be one of the luckiest wedding bands in Ireland to play at weddings like these.
Caitriona & Stephen, Horetown House, Wexford, 12th July 2014
What can we say about this night! It was great to be in Wexford on the night the Wexford Hurlers won such a big game but to be in such opuent surroundings was a real treat for Midnight Sounds. The stunning Horetown House in Wexford was the setting for Caitriona and Stephen’s wedding. We had our full six-piece band and DJ with us for the night. Horetown House has permanent marquee which is stylishly decorated so you get a contemporary feel right next door to the classic building dating back to 1692. This is a great setting for a wedding and well worth a look if you are considering getting married in a private estate in the Wexford area. A big thank you to Kate and Niamh from Horetown House who were more than hospitable to the band. Congratulations again to Caitriona and Stephen.
Yvonne & Niall, Vienna Woods Hotel, Cork, 11th July 2014
Into the tour bus and on to the M8 for Yvonne and Niall’s big day in the lovely surroundings of the Vienna Woods Hotel in Cork. This was a wonderfully relaxed affair and Yvonne and Niall’s guests danced the night away to a wide variety of music. Their first dance was “You are the best thing” by Ray Lamontagne. The great thing about having a brass section (trumpet and sax) with us is that we can play songs like these live which would be tricky with a smaller sized band. Thankfully, Yvonne and Niall went for our six-piece band. We also had Jason with us on DJ duties. Another busy dance floor entertained by Midnight Sounds.
Charlane & Thomas, Castlknock Hotel & Country Club, 6th July 2014
Our last wedding this weekend was the lovely Charlane and Thomas’ fab night at Castleknock Hotel and Country Club. We had our six-piece band with Vincent on front man duties again. We also had Jason with us as who kept the disco going into the small hours of the morning. We were also delighted to be joined by Celtic Dance Fusion who really added some culture to the night and were enjoyed by all. There was a great atmosphere on the dance floor and it was a pleasure to be part of such a great night!
Anne-Marie & Mark, Leixlip Manor & Gardens, 5th July 2014
Much closer to home tonight for Midnight Sounds Wedding Band and the stylish surroundings of Leixlip Manor and Gardens for Anne-Marie and Mark’s wedding. We were delighted to also provide pre-dinner background music in addition to our full band and DJ service. Dave and Mark provided some smooth Jazz for the drinks reception and the band kept the dance floor full with everything from chart music to trad music. The band’s full versatility was there fro all to see. Another happy couple and a great night for Midnight Sounds Wedding Band. Leixlip Manor is one of our favourite venues and well worth looking into if you are considering getting married in the Dublin/Kildare area.
Carine & Chris, Carnaween House, 4th July 2014
Well, you will often hear bands complaining about long journeys. We spoke about it at length in another post on this page. BUT. we genuinely love it. Particularly for such a distinctive wedding as Carine and Chris’ on Friday night. Most of the band had to rely heavily on google maps here and as James our bass player pointed out, when google maps also shows you how long it will take to fly to your destination, you know you have a long journey ahead. But this was a truly great night. Carine and Chris got married on Portnoo Strand in Donegal and had their wedding reception in a custom built marquee at Carnaween House over looking the Atlantic Ocean. It was a real pleasure to play for this wedding and a great night was enjoyed by all. Carine and Chris chose “Everywhere” by Fleetwood Mac as their first dance.
Emma & Andrew, Marlfield House, 28th June 2014
Back to the Sunny South East for Midnight Sounds and the luxurious surroundings of Marlfield House in Wexford. Weddings in exclusive country houses seem to be more popular than ever and why not! Guests can bop away to the band (hopefully Midnight Sounds) or unwind in the library with a drink. Everybody enjoys weddings for different reasons. Some people like dancing all night, others hate the thought of dancing. when you have the whole place to yourself, guests can come and go as they please and this creates a wonderfully relaxed environment for your guests. we had a blast playing for Emma and Andrew’s wedding and it looks like their guests enjoyed the music. Congratulations guys!
Billy and Sinead, the Lord Bagenal Hotel, Carlow, 27th June 2014
Next stop on the Midnight Sounds summer wedding tour was the Lord Bagenal Hotel in Carlow for Sinead and Billy’s wedding. We have to first of all give a huge shout out to the staff of the Lord Bagenal whose and experience and helpfulness behind the scenes always makes the weddings at this hotel special. They even let us go quite a bit over time with the music which is a rarity these days. Sinead and Billy chose “You are the best thing” by Ray Lamontagne as their first dance and this was a great song for the band to play. We had our six-piece band including trumpet and sax with us which meant we could play the song exactly as the original. A great night and a great wedding with Dave taking over DJ duties after the band. Thanks again to Sinead and Billy for choosing Midnight Sounds.
Barry and Elena, Esplanade Hotel, Bray, 22nd June 2014
Sunday weddings are definitely becoming popular across Ireland and on possibly the hottest day of the year, where would you rather be than the seafront at Bray. The Esplanade Hotel is where Barry and Elena got married and there was a great summer party atmosphere. The first dance was the beautiful “High Hopes” by Kodaline. Elena’s family travelled all the way from Russia and we were happy to play “Hotel California” as a special request for the father of the bride. Our six-piece band kept the party going and our DJ shane took over from us straight away. Congratulations again to Barry and Elena and thank you for booking Midnight Sounds Wedding Band.
Yvonne and Daniel, Ballyseede Castle, Tralee, 21st June 2014
Midnight Sounds were delighted to be back in the stunning surroundings of Ballyseede Castle. This is simply a stunning venue and we were delighted so be reunited with “Genghis” the resident Irish Wolfhound who, like clockwork arrives in exactly when the sausages are being served! He never causes a fuss and wedding guests are always happy to see him. We had the six-piece band with us and Shane took over DJ duties afterwards. We had a packed dance floor all the way through and it was great to be part of such a good night.
Petra and Colin, Ardilaun Hotel, Galway, 20th June 2014
Midnight Sounds Headed West again for Colin and Petra’s Wedding at the Ardilaun Hotel in Galway. We had our six-piece band with Dave on superstar DJ duties until the small hours of the morning. Colin and Petra chose “One day like this” by Elbow. This song had a special significance to Colin who is a member of a choir who recently recorded a version of this in RT. The recorded was picked up and commented on by no other than Guy Garvey of Elbow. Another packed dance floor and a great night for Colin, Petra, their guests and Midnight Sounds Wedding Band.
Tracy & Thabiso, annebrook House Hotel, Mullingar,14th June 2014
It’s been a few months since we were at the Annebrook and it was great to be back for Tracy and Thabiso’s wedding in Mullingar. Tracy and Thabiso chose a “Your love is like” by Rick Pino as their first dance. This was our first time to come across this lovely tune. Any engaged couples out there looking for first dance inspiration could be pleasantly surprised by this great song. You can check it out here.
Sarah & Mark, Westgrove Hotel, Clane, 13th June 2014
Our next stop this weekend was Sarah and Mark’s wedding at the Westgrove Hotel in Clane. Another great night unfolded before us and the dance floor was never quiet. Sarah and Mark’s guests really wanted a wide selection of music and we were happy to accept the challenge. We covered Jives, Waltzes, Rock and Roll, Pop, Rock, Blues, Trad, Swing. You name it, we got it! This was all before our DJ shane took over from us and even then, the party showed no signs of dying down.
Katrina & Colin, Brook Lodge, 12th June 2014
Another one of our favourite venues, Midnight Sounds returned to the fabulous Brook Lodge for Katrina and Colin’s awesome big day. The dance floor was stuffed all night and this was a real party! This was a Thursday wedding but it quickly became apparent that there weren’t too many people working on Friday morning. Katrina and Colin chose the beautiful “Today” by Joshua Radin as their first dance. A great night enjoyed by all. Always nice to be thanked so warmly at the end of the night!
Duane & Jessie, Finnstown House, 7th June 2014
A Local wedding for Midnight Sounds Wedding Band. We spend most of the year travelling around Ireland. This is what we love doing and it is great to see the huge variety in wedding venues around Ireland but it is nice to be in Dublin now and again! Duane and Jessie had our full six-piece wedding band and their guests were certainly up for a good night. It was also the first time we played a Japanese song for a first dance! Thanks again to all the staff at Finnstown House who as always, made the night very easy for the band.
Caroline & Ciaran, Ballymagarvey Village, 6th June 2014
Caroline and Ciaran Really did things in style at the glorious Ballymagarvey Village. This is a venue we are certainly getting to know very well and it is always a pleasure to play here. We had our full six-piece band packing the dance floor and our DJ Shane took over until the early hours of the morning.
Brian & Michelle, Sheraton Hotel, Athlone, 31st May 2014
Off to the Midlands for Brian and Michelle’s Wedding. This was a great day and night. Mark and Dave provided classy jazz music on for the roof top drinks reception. Thanks as well to the staff at the Sheraton who very cleverly thought to put a canopy up over the jazz duo in case it rained. Thankfully the rain held off! Brian and Michelle chose “Waitin on a sunny day” by Bruce Springsteen as their first dance which we were happy to play live. The dance floor was packed all the way through the band’s set and this continued through Dave’s disco set. We were also delighted to receive a lovely thank you card from Brian & Michelle.
April & Daniel, Ashdown Park Hotel, Wexford, 30th May 2014
Midnight Sounds Wedding Band were back in the familiar surroundings of the Ashdown Park Hotel in Gorey for April and Daniel’s fab wedding. Our full six-piece band kept the dance floor hopping and the spirits high! The band welcomed Vincent into the fold again for another great front man performance. Night’s like these make us love being in a wedding band. We have played at this venue a lot this year and it is certainly worth looking at if you are getting married in the sunny south east.

Toni & Jimmy, Heritage Hotel, Laois, 22nd May 2014
We had the full six-piece band and DJ package in for Toni & Jimmy’s big day and what a night it was. After their great choice of first dance (“better” by Tom Baxter), we were delighted to perform some One Direction by special request for Toni and Jimmy’s daughter Ailbhe who joined them on the dance floor. We were delighted to receive this lovely message from the Happy Couple the next day.

Meadbh & Rob, Ballybeg House, 16th May 2014
A short hop to Wicklow for the stunning setting of Ballybeg House for Meadbh & Rob’s big day. This was actually Midnight Sounds Wedding Band’s first trip to Ballybeg House and we certainly hope it won’t be our last to this exclusive venue. The lack of phone coverage means you have no choice but to look up and take in the magnificent surroundings. The reception here is an exquisite permanent marquee and it is just cosy enough to create a great atmosphere on the dance floor. Meadbh an Rob’s guests certainly had their dancing shoes on and our full six piece wedding band stuffed the dancefloor until Shane our DJ took over and kept the party going. Great night all round! If you are considering having your wedding in wicklow (the garden of Ireland) then we strongly recommend checking out Ballybeg House. Great food, stunning venue oh… and don’t forget to book Midnight Sounds!
Ps, an unusual but great choice of first dance by Meadbh & Rob. Has anyone out there ever had “This must be the place” by Talking Heads as their first dance! Well we were delighted to perform this live for the first time.
Midnight Sounds Wedding Band Ireland, Lauren & Alan, Dunboyne Castle, Meath, 18th May 2014
Back to one of our favourite venues tonight for the wedding of Lauren & Alan. We would be biased here, this is where Dave our singer got married and the band have a lot of happy memories of this Hotel. Dunboyne Castle in meath always do things to the highest professional standards and they make it so easy for wedding bands to come in and do their job well. One other thing to point out to couples still considering different venues for their big day, having the bar in the function room itself always makes it easier to create a good atmosphere. Just a small thing to keep in mind. Midnight Sounds provided a stylish jazz duo consisting of guitar and double bass for Alan and Lauren’s drink reception. This was followed by our full 6-piece wedding band and DJ. as you can see from the pictures below, Midnight Sounds Wedding Band, once again filled the dance floor.

Have a look at how Midnight Sounds had the dance floor hopping at Alan and Lauren’s wedding. You can see more here
Midnight Sounds Wedding Band Ireland. Elizabeth & Feargal, Ashdown Park Hotel, Wexford, 16th May 2014
And so back on the tour bus for Midnight Sounds Wedding Band and a trip to the sunny south-east and the Ashdown Park Hotel in Gorey for Elizabeth and Feargal’s big day. This is another venue we come across quite a bit and is a great choice for couples getting married in the wexford area. The main ballroom is adaptable to different sized weddings. They also give the band the option of using a stage or not. We do get asked by venues quite a bit whether or not we would like to use the stage. We prefer not to. Why, you ask? Well, Midnight Sounds Wedding Band have been known to get a bit too animated onstage at times and the more flimsy the stage, the more worrying it becomes! Another great night here and another full dancefloor.

you can see lots of picures from this wedding on our facebook page but here’s a sample of the mood on the dance floor for this great night. Congratulations again to Elizabeth and Feargal.
Midnight Sounds Wedding Band, Ireland. Terence & Niamh, Keadeen Hotel, Kildare. 11th May 2014
At Midnight Sounds Wedding Band, we’re now strongly looking at moving into the Keadeen. We seem to be here every week! Not that we’re complaining! As a wedding band, you have to expect to travel around Ireland a lot. This is pretty local but we would have gone anywhere to play for a wedding like Terence and Niamh’s! This truly was a great night.
We we’re delighted to welcome Eoin into the band again. Another Awesome frontman we are happy to have in Midnight Sounds. Again, we have to give special mention to the staff at the Keadeen who were brilliant as always. I know we mentioned them in another post but if you would like more informtion on booking the Keadeen for your wedding, just click here; http://www.keadeenhotel.ie/
You can find more pictures of Terence and Niamh’s packed dance floor on our facebook page but here our a few good ones courtesy of our DJ Shane from Event Innovations.
Midnight Sounds, Wedding Band Ireland, Sarah & Jack, Bunratty Castle, Clare, 9th May 2014
What an unbelievable night in Bunratty. Midnight Sounds Wedding Band headed west again to Bunratty for Sarah and Jack’s blacktie wedding. The wet weather couldn’t dampen the spirits and our six-piece band had the dance floor stuffed again from start to finish. Our DJ, Shane took over ensuring the party kept going. What a crowd, from “Wagon Wheel” to “One Direction” we just couldn’t go wrong! Special praise has to go to our saxophone player Dave, who learned the solo for Sarah and Jack’s first dance which was ” A million love songs” by Take That. We wanted him to walk out on the dance floor in a white suit surrounded by smoke but the Health and Safety Regulations wouldn’t allow it. Don’t know how Kenny G gets away with it!
Bunratty Castle certainly know what they are doing when it comes to staging stylish weddings. If you would like more information on having you big day there, just click here; http://www.bunrattycastlehotel.com/weddingsclare.html
Once again, Midnight Sounds did the job asked of a wedding band, namely, we filled the dance floor again. Here is a link to our facebook page where you can see us in action at Jack and Sarah’s wedding but we left you a little sample.
Midnight Sounds Wedding Band Ireland Review- Louise and Ciaran, Kinnitty Castle, Offaly, May 2014
Midnight Sounds Wedding Band carried on their tour throughout Ireland this weekend. We hopped on our tour bus and headed to Kinnity Castle in Offaly for the fabulous wedding of Louise and Ciaran. We also cleaned the inside of the tour bus.
Midnight Sounds Tour Bus interior.
The problem is cleaning the exterior as it doesn’t fit through most car washes. We also get some strange looks from the older waltz-loving generation when we pull up outside the more exclusive venues. For some reason, the grandparents are convinced we’re going to be too loud when they see us arrive in our bus.
This was another great night for Midnight Sounds Wedding Band. Ciaran and Louise’s guests were really in party mode and we were more than happy to join in. The first dance was the beautiful “better” by Tom Baxter. This is a song close to Dave’s heart as he also had this song for the first dance at his own wedding. We also have to mention the venue. Kinnitty Castle is simply magnificent and a great choice for any couple looking for a classy wedding. The staff were great as always and for more information on Kinnitty Castle, just click here; http://www.kinnittycastlehotel.com/
We hd the full six-piece band for Ciaran and Louise. Our DJ Shane kept the party going well into the night and you can see by our photos that the dance floor was rocking. We also received this lovely e-mail from Louise and Ciaran afterwards;
Just wanted to thank Midnight Sounds for the wonderful job they did at keeping the dance floor full all night at our wedding in Kinnitty. All our guests are still talking about how good the band were!!Thank you guys so much-the music was a really important part of the day for us and we loved every minute of it! Also want to thank the DJ too… kept the dance floor full for another few hours after the band had left.
Thanks again and we will be sure to recommend you to any newly engaged friends.
Louise and Ciaran
Midnight Sounds, Wedding Band Ireland, Regina & Michael, Hotel Minella, Clonmel, Tipperary, 2nd May 2014,
What a day for Midnight Sounds Wedding Band. Regina and Michael booked our full package including ceremony music, jazz music for their drinks reception, full six-piece wedding band for their after dinner party and our DJ Shane. This is a huge honour when we are given full responsibility for all the music on a couples wedding day. Starting off with their ceremony, Karla and Susan provided the ceremony music while Dave and James welcomed guests to the Hotel Minella in Clonmel with some classy and sophisticated jazz music. After dinner all hell broke loose! It’s safe to say that Regina an Michael’s guests were well up for a party. The dance floor was stuffed and the feel good factor was evident as you can see from our pictures below. It is one of the best parts of being in a wedding band, to see happy faces on a busy dance floor. We cover every inch of Ireland making this happen. For more information on booking the Hotel Minella for your wedding just click here; http://hotelminella.com/
We were also delighted to receive this lovely e-mail from the happy couple;
Sorry for only getting around to do this now.We are just back form our honeymoon and back to work today!
Thanks so much to you and your band for the great music for our wedding on 2nd May.A lot of people were asking who the great band were. I hope the trip to Tipp wasn’t too long for you coming from Dublin and back again.
Thanks and Kind regards
Regina and Michael
