'Just a quick email from the Carribean to say a massive thank you for our wedding last weekend, the band were brilliant. You really got the crowd going and the dance floor was full all night with the choice of music excellent. Thanks for eveything and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. All our friends and family were raving about the band and I believe Claires broher may also be looking to book you for his wedding next year.'
Manus and Claire O'Kane
'Just getting round now to saying THANK YOU to The Hootenannys for the first class performance at Fiona's wedding. Your choice of music was well suited to the occasion and to the guests and, crucially it met one of our top criteria - no backing tracks. We have received many very positive comments about your performance ... including some from people who are in the business themselves. Thanks also to Aidy for very professional disco.
I will have no hestitation in recommending you to others.'
Malachy McKernan (Father of the Bride)
'I just don’t know where to start, or how to thank you all for making our night so special. I think when you book your band for your wedding, your biggest fear is, “How good are they?” and “What if no one dances! Well.....I need not have had a worry in the world the day we booked The Hootnenannys. You guys were FANTASTIC. You knew all the right songs to sing, and the bant from you guys was great, you just know you all enjoy doing what you do so much. The amount of guests that have asked about our amazing band, and commented that “the dance floor was just full all night”! You guys it can be said more and exceeded our expectations.
Thank you once again, Fab is not the word!'
Lydia and Kris
'Just a short note to say thank you so much for the awesome job you did at our wedding. The atmosphere was electric and I don't think the dancefloor was cleared all night. The DJ was great aswell. So thank you for making our day so good'
Jenny and Adam
'Sorry it has taken us so long to send our thanks to you for playing at our wedding reception on 13th June. We wanted our guests to enjoy themselves and have a great night and thanks to the band and DJ we were not disappointed. The choice of songs appealed to everyone young and old and the dance floor was packed all night. Thank you all so much for helping to make our wedding day so special and one that we will remember always. We would highly recommend the Hootenannys!'
Martin and Julie Catney
'Now that we're back from honeymoon, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to day how pleased we were with the entertainment at our wedding reception on 30th July.
Both the Hootenannys and the DJ went down very well, with everyone up dancing at one point or another. A number of guests remarked on how good the band were and they really helped the night go well.
Thanks very much for adding to our special day and I'd greatly appreciate it if you could pass on our thanks to the band, who were quite simply top class'
Greg & Deirdre
'Just wanted to say thanks for a great night at my brothers wedding at the Rosspark on Wednesday. We were really looking forward to hearing the Hootenannys and were not let down! Great musicians playing great songs with plenty of banter along the way - the father of the groom particularly enjoyed his Riverdance set! Would definitely recommend these guys to any couple wanting to make their wedding reception one to remember. Thanks again'
Chantal, Ross Park - 29th August
'Just a quick note to say thanks for everything in the run up to our Switch On on Friday night.
Could you pass my thanks to all the guys in the band? They did a really fantastic job and were extremely flexible and amenable on the night, it was a pleasure to work with them.'
Cathy, Antrim Borough Council
'Just a quick e-mail before we head to Egypt to say thanks very much for a brilliant night's entertainment at our wedding. Your song selection was spot on for the crowd at our reception. The sword dancing was hilarious LOL once again thanks and we will be recommending The Hootenannys to friends and family. You never know you may get a gig in scotland!!!'
Selina & Adrian Proctor
'Just a quick note to say a big thanks to you all of you boys for helping to make our wedding day so fantastic. We've had so many people come tell us how much they enjoyed both the day and of course yourselves. Everyone had the best of craic not to mention our fantastic pageboy and his body popping, encouraged by yourselves. So thanks again, we really couldn't have asked for a better band'.
Leeann & Andrew Bryce
'Just a quick email to say thank you so much for making our evening one of the best weddings, that I have certainly been to! So many of our guests have passed comment on how brilliant the band were, and that they never left the dance floor. So much so, that I didn't speak to half of my guests because I was there too. Sorry, for getting started so late, but I was busy in the bar upstairs. Thanks again for everything, and we'll definitely see you again in The Kings head.'
Amanda & Kieron
'What a surprise the band turned out to be. We weren't sure if booking a band was the right thing for us but on the night it turned out to be great fun. You played such a wide range of music that every guest was up on the floor at one point or another. I've already recommended you to my cousin and her friend who are both getting married next year. Look forward to seeing you then. Sam x'
Sam and Martin Hanna
'Guys, thanks very much. You did exactly what you said on the tin. We had so many things to worry about but the band(thankfully) turned out not to be one of them. Thanks.'
Oliver and Becky Hammond
'I booked the Hootenannys for my wedding reception Aug 2nd and I was more than happy with my choice. From the moment I contacted Gary I was reassured that the evening entertainment was taken care of. The Hootenannys were professional, had a great range of music and many people commented on their performance. I thoroughly recommend them to anyone, Thanks Again.'
'You guys played at our wedding at the Clandeboye Lodge on the 4th August. I just wanted to say thank-you so much for making our wedding day so brilliant, you guys were amazing and worth every penny, definitely the best money we spent. We chose to have a live band because we just wanted to be a bit different and not just have a dj, and i'm so glad we did. It was the one thing everyone remembered and went on about it and made everybodys day, especially when Keith did his bass solo in the middle of the dance floor!
Thanks again guys, hope to get a chance to see you play again, on our anniversary maybe!!!'
Emma and Paul McDonald
'...Marie-Anns father is such an Elvis fan and you guys managed to give him the best night out in years. He's still going on about it! Good to hear the modern stuff aswell. A great night. Highly recommended.'
Darragh and Marie-Ann Donnelly
'Thanks for a professional and enjoyable evening. The band sounded and looked the business. Everyone was well pleased.'
'I would like to extend my thanks to the Hootenannys (Gary, Keith and Paul) for the fantastic job you did when you played at my wedding on 18th August 2007. Your choice of songs was brilliant and you played my wedding song brilliantly, my guests have also expressed their pleasure of hearing you for the first time and the words brilliant, wonderful, in tune, great are just some on the words that have come up time and time again. Thank you again for making our day as perfect as it was meant to be.'
Andrea and Stephen Donnelly
'Just wanted to say a big thanks to you and the guys (and the DJ also) from me and Danny for a fantastic evening on 12th May. We had an absolute ball and the music was brilliant - loads of the guests commented on how good you were. It was such a hectic day trying to get to chat to everyone...
Definitely want to see you play again soon - keep me posted with your gig details please!'
Sinead and Danny Mc Manus
'...having not actually heard The Hootenannys play before my wedding day I was totally at the mercy of my wife-to-be's sound for a good note...whilst this has not always been the best my fears were put to rest when I heard them play their first song!! It didn't take long for the entire dance floor to fill up from my old Gran to my little nephews. Really thought that their choice of songs and long set contributed to the best day of my life. Thank you very much guys.'
