“We would like to say a very special thank you to you for being such a brilliant band on our wedding day in BrookLodge. We loved the music and everyone had such a fun time dancing. There were lots of people talking about how great our band was at our wedding, and Tim & I absolutely loved our first dance! There were quite a few people commenting on how great our first dance was, so thank you once again. “



“I just wanted to say thank you to The Poor Boys for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Everyone really enjoyed the music. I heard no complaints about it being too loud etc. Rodney though you guys were the best wedding band he’s ever heard! He nearly didn’t want to get a band, as he wasn’t too impressed at some of the wedding bands he has heard in the past.

Thanks again – and we look forward to hearing you guys again sometime”


“Well what can I say about your night of music for our wedding night back in April the 4th, Fantastic and very, very entertaining.

Everyone who spoke about the wedding said, that band were brilliant, this was all age groups talking..You guys just Have It, hopefully will see you playing again soon.

A big Thank you for your professionalism, your music, the laugh you provided and it was a breeze to do business with you”


“On behalf of myself and Declan I just want to say a massive thank you to Niall and the lads for doing such an amazing job at our wedding in Castledurrow a few weeks ago! You were just what we were looking for! The dance floor was rockin all night and everyone had a ball. The range of music you played suited everyone which was great. Niall you were an absolute pleasure to deal with from the first night we went to see you guys play. Thanks again guys, I will be highly recommending The Poorboys to friends and families”


“Just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thanks for playing at our wedding before Christmas at Castle Leslie. Myself and Louise really enjoyed your did everyone else at our wedding! You definitely kicked proceedings off well with ‘Honky Tonk Woman’…you got everyone moving including my ma & da so well done!! You really were a big hit with everyone at the wedding – a lotta people were asking all about you so you may have a few invites up north sometime soon..!”


“Just dropping you an email to express our thanks for performing at our wedding. The Poorboys were amazing and everyone really enjoyed your set. You are all such accomplished musicians and it really showed. We got so many compliments from our guests, everyone was really impressed. Thanks also for performing ‘Float On’, it was quality. You were all a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end and we would definitely recommend you to anyone planning their wedding. Thanks again”


“Just a quick note to thank you guys so much for playing a storm at Ballybeg last weekend. You were absolutely brilliant and really added to the whole day. Everyone has been raving about you and we will definitely recommend you where we can!”


“You guys played at our wedding in The Ferrycarrig Hotel on 12th April. We’d never heard you play before, but booked on recommendations from a couple of friends. I was a bit nervous about that but it turned out to be a brilliant decision!

Both the band and DJ were amazing, thank you so much. There was something for every guest there, no matter what age and you made sure that everything we’d requested was played. I’ve had so many compliments about you, I had to mail and let you know how great you were! You were also, very importantly, so easy to talk to and deal with on the night. The DJ took all requests and it just turned out perfectly.”


“We just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the amazing nights entertainment, the dance floor was full from start to finish and everyone was raving about you guys which made our night so special

Thanks a million and we will recommend you to anyone getting married in the future!”


“Ciara and I would like to thank you for the great performance you gave at our wedding in Brooklodge three weeks ago. You completely rocked! I knew before we hired you that you were a great band with amazing vocals, but you really blew us away on the night of our wedding. All our friends and family agreed that you were the best wedding band they had ever experienced!”


“You guys were amazing!! You really surpassed my expectations and, seriously, made the night for me. You played all the music my husband and I wanted to hear and dance to, but didnt alienate the older generation amongst us. Everything was singing your praises the rest of the night and the next day. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who wants to break away from those cringey, typical wedding bands and, book a proper band that can play proper music and seriously rock a wedding!! My new sister-in-law said she thought your rendition of Sunday Bloody Sunday was better than the original!!! So huge thanks again, I can’t tell you what an impact you had on the night.”


“Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU on behalf of myself and Kelly Anne. The band were absolutely unbelievable on the night! From first song to last you rocked the place and kept the dancefloor packed.
In the days and weeks after the wedding, everyone that was there commented on how great the band were, really superb musicians.”


“The Poor Boys were absolutely fantastic, a pleasure to deal with before hand and brilliant on the night. I’ve lost count of the number of guests who have said that they were the best band they’d ever heard at a wedding and how they hadn’t stopped dancing for the entire set. In fact lots of people who generally don’t dance at weddings didn’t leave the dance floor which says it all. We really could not recommend them highly enough. Oh and they did a perfect rendition of our first song which they learned just  for us which was really appreciated.”


“You guys completely surpassed all of our expectations.  Not only did you play all the rock songs that we love (including an incredible version of Zeppelin’s Rock and Roll), you really did manage to play a set that catered for every single person in the room.  I’ve never before seen so many people on a dance floor at a wedding, even my aunts and uncles who are in their late 60’s & 70’s were up dancing for most of the night!  Our guests still haven’t stopped contacting us to tell us how impressed they were.”


“I just wanted to send an email to say a big THANK YOU to you guys for playing at our wedding on 30th June in Clontarf Castle, to say you were amazing would be an understatement!!  From the very beginning Niall was so easy to deal with, which for a bride trying to organize a wedding is a huge bonus.  We had seen you guys play prior to the wedding and we instantly loved you because you were so different to normal wedding bands.”


“I know I thanked you and the band on the night but I just wanted to extend Norah and myselfs gratitude to you and all for helping make our wedding night a great success, ye were absolutely brilliant. We could not have asked for more and were thrilled with the reaction and the overall atmosphere garnered by yourselves.”

“I never got to thank you on the night for playing an ‘Absolute Blinder’ on Sunday. It was the best Gig I’ve ever seen, you and the lads (Poorboys) are pure class and you completed the evening in ways that words can’t describe. I’d just like to thank you from all of us! You wrapped up our day perfectly and made it very special.”


“Thanks for a great night’s entertainment on the 5th in Brooklodge.
We had a ball and everyone was talking about the band afterwards & still are!
People said it was like going to a proper gig instead of a typical wedding band!”


“They were absolutely fantastic!  They were charming, polite, PATIENT, extremely talented and responsible for many more sore feet come Sunday than we could have hoped! The feedback from all our guests was really positive and I have told them who to contact should they wish to use their services in the future. Please pass on my thanks to Niall & the boys.  I will be happy to provide a reference/feedback should it be required in the future.”
