Choosing Wedding Bands in Ireland

Many couples have trouble choosing the right music for their wedding. While well-meaning friends and family will have plenty of suggestions, the couple should consider their personal preferences before arriving at a final decision.  After the couple has chosen their style, then it is important to look for wedding bands in Ireland early because the most popular musicians fill up their calendars months in advance. First, however, the couple needs to choose their favorite style.

Fifties Music

Some couples love the music of the 1950s when Elvis ruled as king, and people idolized the Beetles everywhere. The fact that John Lennon met Paul McCartney at a church influences some people desiring a religious ceremony to consider their music as a logical choice. “Twist and Shout,” along with “Hound Dog,” can create a fun atmosphere for a wedding, while songs like “Dance with You Tonight” can turn the mood more romantic.

Seventies Music

Many couples prefer not to step that far back in time, choosing to embrace the music of the 1970a. DJ’s played the music of ZZ Top, Creedence Clear water Revival, and Stevie Wonder on almost every radio station around the globe. Couples looking to coordinate the wedding band’s music with their wedding theme may want to consider “Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clear water Revival or “Long Train Running” by the Doobie Brothers.


Learning to waltz before a wedding is an activity that many couples enjoy. It is a proven way to release some of the pre-wedding jitters. There are many waltzes that make beautiful wedding music, including “On Your Wedding Day” and “Amore.” When you hire professional wedding entertainment, they can easily help set the mood for your awesome event.


High-energy Irish music can be great fun at a wedding reception. There are many outstanding groups that have played Irish music over the years, including Thin Lizzy and the Dropkick Murphys. Popular wedding songs include “Whiskey in the Jar” and “Brewin’ Up a Storm.” Recoil Wedding Band has been providing couples across Ireland with high-energy wedding entertainment since 2008, and this is one of their favorite styles of music to play.


Sing-along or party music is the perfect choice for many couples. The right wedding bands will have everyone joining in the fun by playing songs from The Proclaimers, Bryan Adams, and Mumford and Sons. Stop for a second and imagine the fun you and your friends can have singing “500 Miles,” “Wagon Wheel,” and “Crazy Little Thing.”

No dance is more important than the first dance. The couple should have the choice of picking that song regardless of style and have wedding bands learn that song.
