We are a four piece group, featuring some of Ireland’s most talented musicians.
John Colbert regularly plays bass with Damien Dempsey, Paddy Casey and Jerry Fish; drummer Tim McGrath was a member of Paddy Casey’s band on U2’s Vertigo world tour; singer Niall Donnelly has toured with Snow Patrol, Sixteen Layers and many more and with the addition of guitarist Kevin Rowe, one of Ireland’s most sought after session guitarists, the band have set themselves up as one of the best cover bands anywhere!
The Poorboys is one of the most dynamic, exciting and eclectic bands on the wedding scene in Ireland today.
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 set..as 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..!”
“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”
“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!”
