“To Paddy’s Whiskers….thank you so much for your wonderful music and for helping to create such a warm atmosphere at our wedding” (Penny & Bill).
Paddy’s Whiskers provide the perfect entertainment package for weddings and parties. We can offer you a gig, ceilidh or barn dance from a kicking live irish/celtic band, romantic acoustic music for your marriage ceremony and a great DJ with a spectacular lighting show – just choose what you like the sound of!
We feel honoured to play at weddings – there is nothing finer than being invited to take part in the celebration of a couple’s love. We are used to working closely with bride and groom to help make a great party. We bring excellent lighting and PA equipment, which enhances any room or space – and we love to dress the part – so the band look good too!
At your wedding party or reception, you and your guests can dance and sing along to kicking live Irish, Celtic and American music as Paddy’s Whiskers take the stage for a full barn dance or ceilidh. We work with an excellent caller who can help guests through the different dances with fun and great humour. Our ceilidhs and barn dances are a lovely way for wedding guests to party together – by the end of the night everybody has danced with everybody else!
Here’s a great video using Paddy’s Whiskers’ music throughout – from a lovely wedding barn dance/ceilidh we played in Devon in Summer 2016. (You can see the band in action from 3:35 onwards…)
We specialise in great first dances for bride and groom. A favourite is our unique Paddy’s Whiskers’ Wedding Dance – which involves all your guests joining you on the dance floor – and making an arch for you to dance under (see the photo above!). The band can also play a repertoire of slower romantic tunes for you to choose from, or we can play any MP3 of your choice through our PA for you to dance to.
Earlier in the day, Andrew and Jules from the band are often invited to play beautiful acoustic folk renditions of wedding classics and other tunes as you walk down the aisle and while you sign the register – or for your drinks reception.
During the afternoon meal, you can, if you wish, enjoy subtle but entertaining DJ’d background music, tailored to your tastes. Our PA and radio microphones can be available for speech making or for you to plug your iPod into.
After the ceilidh or barn dance, the party can groove on into the night, as our resident DJ plays an exciting mix of well known hits, world music, funky upbeat folk and the best electronica – or any music of your choice from your own playlist.
