Hi to all the Troubadours

Thanks for putting on a great show at our wedding. Both my’self and Nata were absolutely delighted with your performance. I especially remember and always will remember City of Ruins and Annie song, also Radio Nowhere.

So many people have asked who you are and that they haven’t seen such a great Wedding Band. Please say thank you to the rest of the Band for us.

Take care and hopefully we can see one of your shows the next time were home.

Thank you so much for the great job you did on our Wedding, the floor was full all night and that’s exactly what we wanted. Brilliant job on our first dance. Hopefully will catch you in Matt the Millers as soon as the dust settles.

  1. Thanks to The Troubadours for a fantastic evening at our wedding. The guys were so professional and kept our guests dancing all night long. A special thank you for learning a song for my Dad for our “father/daughter” dance. It meant so much to both of us. Planning a wedding from the United States was not an easy task, but you guys made it so easy on us and didn’t disappoint. Thank you and best wishes for a bright future!

  2. Just wanted to leave a note of thanks for Pete & the boys!

    You really stole the show at our wedding & that’s saying something when you have guests from RTE, Setanta & Sky Sports London… not to mention the Mums!
    With lots of pressure to do a good job, the lads performance was second to none!!!

    We were thoroughly delighted & the dance floor was packed from start to finish.
    Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, can’t recommend these guys highly enough & if you have them involved in your wedding it will be one less thing to worry about & one thing you know you will have got right!!

    Big Love,

  3. Hi guys. Thanks for playing at our party recently. From first contact to final song it was a complete success. From the very first song the dance floor filled and it was never empty for the night. Everybody had a fantastic time on the night and they are still talking about the band. People dance to your music that have not danced in a long time.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending you guys to anyone that is looking for a band for their event.

  4. Thank you to Pete Fagan and the Troubadours for doing a great job at our wedding. The dance floor never emptied all night. Everybody thought ye were fantastic and had a great night. Thanks also to Pete for doing an equally great job on our after party.

    We couldn’t recommend them highly enough to ensure a brilliant event!!

  5. Well lads, what can I say? The best decision made for our wedding day, and it pains me to say that it’s my husband that can brag about booking the band. It was so nice to arrive at my reception, have a glass of champagne and listen to ye. I am so glad that I chose the easy listening at reception because it meant I could dance with my father, and husband, which was totally unplanned, but ye created SUCH an amazing atmosphere that I just grabbed the opportunity, and when I think about the day, they are the first memories to come into my head which wouldn’t have happened without input from ye. Like others have said the dancefloor was full all night, people absolutely loved ye. Not only that, ye are so professional, and so reliable, absolute gentlemen. Ye were constantly smiling, laughing, and joking with guests, and we loved every single minute of each performance. Thanks for entertaining everyone on our special day!

    I can’t say enough about Pete’s amazing voice, and this band, they are brilliant! Best decision you will make for your day!

  7. Hi Guys,

    Well what can I say. Thank you for making our special day such a success. We are still getting texts and emails about how great the band were and we totally agree. We couldnt have been happier. To define it in 3 points:
    Best band we have ever heard.
    Most professional team we have dealt with.
    Nicest group to deal with on the day.
    Not only did you cater for everyone and keep the dance floor full but you coped well with our antics and the interaction was great fun.
    Please let us know any of your upcoming gigs as we cant wait to see you agains.
    Thanks for everything.
    Ken & Olivia

  11. Just wanted to say a huge thanks to The Troubadours and their booking co ordinator Lisa for all the work that was put in for our wedding. The band really were amazing and went down so well – everyone loved you! You really made the night for us and for everyone else.

  12. Hey lads!!
    Thanks a million for performing at the Blue Light Ball on friday 24th February 2012.
    The music was fantastic on the night and everyone I spoke to agreed the venue was rocking! I don’t think there was any part of the night where the dance floor was not full!

    Ye are true professionals and I have recommended ye to many couples due to marry. I hope that ye are available next year for 2013’s installment of the Blue Light Ball!!
    Thanks again for a fantastic night!

  13. Just a small note to thank The Troubadours and Lisa (booking co-ordinator) for all their effort before our wedding and brilliant performance on the wedding day.

    Lisa was a pleasure to deal with and nothing we asked for was too much trouble for the band.

    Steve did an amazing job during the ceremony and the drinks reception. We’ve had nothing but compliments of the band’s performance that night. We’re delighted we booked The Troubadours and highly recommend them!

    Hassle-free and great quality performance and customer service! Cheers guys.

  14. To Pete and the lads,
    We had a fantastic wedding. Everyone is still mentioning how good the band was. We had a full dancefloor till the DJ stopped playing and we actually couldn’t have danced any more. My only complaint is that the night went too fast, the sign of a good one!!!
    We certainly will be recommending ye guys as a band and so will any of our guests.
    Thank you all so much for a great night, we must think of some excuse for another big party to get you back playing for us again soon!!!
    Best of luck,
    Eva and Wesley

  15. Just a quick note to say a big thanks to Pete, Pierce and the boys and also to tell the world how great they are.
    We really had a wonderful day in the Headfort and a huge part of that was the band.
    They had the place rockin’ the whole night and the dance floor was never empty. They may be a covers band but they don’t feel or look like a covers band – more like rock stars and they really give it loads.
    It was pure chance we came across them in the first place and ended up seeing them in the Harcourt and from the first beat of “Get Back” that night we knew they were the perfect for our wedding and so they proved.
    Their version of “Moves Like Jagger” is worth having them alone. Definitely have to see them again sometime.

  17. Hi Pete and band,

    Thank you for a fantastic performance at our wedding on 31st March 2012 in Talbot Hotel Wexford.

    The dance floor was full all night and your music really made a fantastic party atmosphere at our wedding. We had alot of people who travelled from Clare and surrounding counties for our wedding, and everyone said to us they really enjoyed the band.

    Your band was strongly recommended to us (C. Quigley) and i would 100% recommend ye to anybody looking for an amazing, up-to-date, hard-working band.

    Thank you so much for your hard work on the night, and we definitely can not wait to dance the night away with ye again.

    Wishing Pete and the band all the very best wishes for the future,
    Thanks again,

  20. To d’boys of Troubadours, Would just like to say a huge thanks for making our wedding so special. After I was chatting with ye outside while everyone was getting ready to sit down for grub it was like you were just part of the wedding. You were so laid back and just blended in it was great. Our first dance song was amazing and how you interacted with the crowd was brilliant. So many of our guests were talking about it. From our Tina Turner star, to my uncle being your 5th band member, it made it so personal and even better craic. We had an absolute ball and thanks for making it such a great party!

    Cheers, Lisa and Conor

  21. Hi Pete, Pierce, Steve and Brian

    Booking you for our wedding reception was genius we just didnt know it at the time !

    From our first dance ‘Feels like home’ right through to the last song the quality of The Troubadours performance was second to none.

    Grown men in their 40’s are a rare breed on any dance floor but the band had every single one of them on their feet for the majority of the night ! We believe that this rare sight was solely down to that extra spark which the band provides.

    Men, women and children of all ages waltzed, jived, rocked and bopped until the early hours and we cant recommend them enough for any special occassion which you may be planning

    Our family and friends are still talking about our wonderful band choice so thank you all so much for giving us such a fantastic finale to our wedding day

    Kind regards

  22. Guys what can I say you blew my guests away. you wouldnt have had the easiest of tasks preforming at my wedding as you had many musicians in the audience. A tenor, a soul singer, a trad musician and of course a professional who toured with the commitments for 10 years. In fairness you pulled out all the stops and helped create an electric ambience.

    There were people of all ages on the floor, even my aunt who has arthrithas couldnt sit down. The youg people were loving your more modern sounds and the middle of the age group danced the night away to Tina turner classics.

    I have since heard that two guests who were actually at our wedding have booked you guys and once again from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank you for helping us celebrate the best day of our lives.

  23. Hi guys,

    Just want to leave a little note to say a MASSIVE thank you for playing such an important role in making our weekend the huge success that it was!

    The dance floor was full to the brim for the entire night! Many a time i would go to “mingle” when you would play another fantastic song and my feet wouldnt let me leave the dance floor!

    All our guests have complimented the music for the night, Especially my 5 year old cousin who is still talking about how he won the dance competition!

    I would also love to mention the great job Pete did on the second night of our wedding, playing in a more intimate setting, just him and his guitar. Pete you are one truely talented and gifted man and i cant thank you enough, you warmed us right up for our sing song that lasted into the early hours of the morning!!

    I would not hestiate to recommend this band to any bride or groom planning their wedding, i promise you would not be disappointed!

    Emma and MJ McGuinness xx

  24. Just a note to say thanks so much for putting on a fantastic show the night of our wedding in the Lord Baganel on the 8th of June!! It was yer fault that I simply did no mingling with our guests once the music started as I couldn’t leave the floor! Ye kept everyone on their feet with the wide range of excellent songs ye covered, without touching on any of the typical cheese a lot of wedding bands can bang out!!! Yer energy levels knew no bounds!!!

    I have recommended ye to a couple of people since our big day, and will continue to do so as I believe no bride and groom would regret booking you. Your musical and vocal ability, choice of songs, ability to read the crowd, level of energy and professionalism were all second to none!

    Keep up the good work and thanks again for everything!

    Elaine and Donal Bigley

  25. A huge thanks to Pete and the lads for playing at our wedding in cork .

  26. The Troubadours played at our wedding in Waterford Castle in March, 2011 and we couldn’t have asked for better entertainment that night. I have never seen my Dad dance so much. The floor was bouncing from start to finish. True professionals with a fantastic repetoire. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough! Thank you!

  27. To Peter & the lads,
    We have eventually gotten around to posting a quick message…..
    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing job you did at our wedding reception!
    The floor was full with both young & old all night a real testament to your music!
    From your amazing performance of our first dance right through to the last song of the night I could not fault a single thing.
    Special mention to Lisa who was our first point of contact-she was a pleasure to deal with, always replying promptly to emails etc, and ensured all our requests were communicated to the lads.
    A truly professional outfit, I would not hesitate to recommend you to any couple planning their big day.
    Thanks again,

  28. To the Troubadours,

    “Wow”, what can we say! We feel very privledged to have had The Troubadours as our wedding band. Not only did you blow us away but I can’t believe how many people commented on how amazing you were. The fact that there were guests who i have NEVER seen dance in public on the dancefloor the whole night is testament to you all.

    You really made our wedding so enjoyable for us and our guests. The atmosphere was amazing and the floor was packed all night. Thank you for making our wedding memorable. Big thanks to your booking co-ordinator Lisa who made the process so easy and stress free. 🙂

  29. Hi Pete, Lisa and all the lads,

    Just wanted to send ye a message to thank you so much for playing at our wedding!

    I can’t actually tell you how many people came up to us, both on the night and after the wedding to tell us what a fantastic band we had chosen!

    The atmosphere was fantastic and I can’t recall one song where the dance floor wasn’t jammed, which is exactly what we wanted-everyone to have a fantastic time dancing the night away!

    Lisa, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with-there is so much going on the few weeks before the wedding, and not one second did I spend worrying about the band as I knew that both you and d lads would just do your thing and do what ye do best-making sure that every taste is catered for and that everyone would have a ball!

    Also, just want to thank you for the first song-we thought you did a fantastic job! The dj you organised for us was brilliant too!

    We won’t hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends-some have already asked for your name!

    Thank you so so much, hope to see ye at another wedding soon where I don’t have to unwillingly leave the dance floor to mingle with the few guests that aren’t on the floor!!!

    Lynn and Mitchell


  30. A HUGE thank you to the band for playing at our wedding! The guys were absolutely fantastic & the dance floor was packed all night! It’s unbelievable how many people came up to us during the wedding afters and the day after telling us just how good the band were. Thanks so much for the great job ye did on our first dance song, your amazing performance made that moment even more special for us!
    Ye really made the night for us and we can’t thank you enough!
    Lisa you were a pleasure to deal with! Many thanks also for the dj you chose for us, he did a great job and kept the dance floor full until the early morning.
    We couldn’t have chosen a more perfect band & dj!

  31. To The Troubadours

    Thank you so much for everything on our wedding day. Pete and the band were fantastic, including the DJ. Everyone commented on the music and how great it was. The dance floor was full all night. I had lots of little requests before the wedding regarding certain dances & YouTube clips & you handled it all with ease & kindness. You helped to make it a brilliant day. Thank you so much. Hope to see you again soon,

  32. I would like to say a big “Thank You” to Pete and the Band and Lisa, the band played at our Annual Conference recently. The crowd was mixed, but all ages were catered for, and the dance floor was full all night!

    We had requested a varied programme, and we were very pleased with the performance Everyone had a ball, and we enjoyed the music, the singing and the guitar playing was terrific as well.

    Our anthem “Sweet Caroline” which we requested at the end of the night was played and sung ( and danced) superbly. We really did enjoy that, thank you all.

  33. We would highly recommend the Troubadours to anyone looking for a wedding band after having them at ours. I previously saw them at a friends wedding so it was an easy decision to make. We also asked Pete to do some acoustic songs during the ceremony, he did an amazing jobs and alot of people commented on both his and the Bands performance afterwards.

    Thanks to the Troubadours!

  34. Just wanted to say a huge thank you to The Troubadours for a fantastic performance at our wedding in March 2013. A full dance floor is always a sign of a good wedding band and that is exactly what we had. The DJ was also brilliant.
    We would highly recommend you to any couple planning thier big day.
    Thanks again,
    Noel & Maria.

  35. To The Troubadours,

    We would both sincerely like to thank you for a great day at our Wedding. From first dance to DJ you were all fantastic and we would both advise anyone thinking of using ye in their day to look no further. Everyone were seriously complimentary and had a fantastic day. The professionalism from very start to finish was excellent and the active after DJ kept everyone in fine spirits with his great music too and participation too. Again thank you Pete and the band.

  36. Hi Pete & Gang,

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say what a FANTASTIC job you did at our wedding in April.

    Lots of things went really great on the day but months later people still complement us on the band.
    You really stole the show at our wedding!
    We were thoroughly delighted & the dance floor was packed from start to finish.
    Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, we can’t recommend these guys highly enough.

    The floor was hopping right from the very first song and you got everyone up from the young to the not so young.

    Cheers lads,


  37. Pete & The Band,
    Thank you so much for an unbelievable performance at our wedding. Ye had everyone up dancing and enjoying the craic for the entire night. For anyone looking for a wedding band; look no further. Both band and DJ wer great on the night, everything ran smoothly and most important they really added to the atmosphere and enjoyment for all the guests on the night, really couldn’t recommend them more. Pete, thanks for a perfect rendition of our first dance, we loved it.

  38. We had the troubadours for our wedding in March. All I can say is they were amazing!!! They had everyone up on the floor from the very start. They interacted with my guests and kept them involved in the night. I would recommend these for anyone looking to have a fantastic night.

  39. We would like to give a massive thanks to Pete and The Troubadours for playing at our wedding this summer. You guys absolutely rocked it! The dance floor was hopping all night, which is just how we wanted it. There were a couple of surprises thrown in on the night that kept us on our toes too! Ye also did a absolutely fantastic job on our first dance song, Stevie Wonder’s “For Once in my Life”. We would highly recommend the Troubadours and they made a great impression with all our guests too.

  40. We just wanted to say a massive thanks to The Troubadours. Pete and the band were absolutely fantastic and as he promised, the floor was packed right from the first dance!! We had a lot of comments from our near 200 guests that they’d never been to a wedding with almost the entire room up dancing. This was down to the wide range of songs they covered, the craic they had with our guests and Pete’s brilliant vocals!! They really did make it a day we’ll never forget and we would highly recommend using these guys for your wedding, get them booked before anything else!!

    Thanks a million again guys.

  41. If you are looking for an amazing wedding band – look no further! The Troubadours were fantastic – all our guests have said so and we enjoyed them hugely ourselves. Our worst fear was that nobody would dance at our wedding – we need not have worried. The Troubadours played our first dance live and it was wonderful. From then on they catered to the crowd, providing waltzes for our more senior guests, dance offs between the bridesmaids and the groomsmen, a ceili for our non-Irish guests and they avoided all the songs that were not to our personal taste so that we enjoyed every single song. Something we did not expect which ended up being the highlight of the night for us was Pete’s invitation to come up and sing the chorus of our first dance song to one another. The Troubadours are more than a great band as they interact with the crowd to ensure a memorable evening for all. we would highly recommend them.

  42. Hi Guys,

    Just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for the great set you played at our wedding in Mulranny at the end of August. Everyone said that the music was fantastic and you kept the floor filled all night. Also thank you for making the process very easy and learning the special requests we made – Hazard is no easy song to play! We had a great time and our first dance was just so much fun – thank you for your suggestions on that as well. A great night all round.

    Many thnaks again,

    Paul and Mandy Gavin
