Get In Touch

We were absolutely thrilled with The Ratzingers.
They provided music for our ceremony and the reception in Rathsallagh House in Wicklow this year. After quite a lot of research and visiting other bands we came across The Ratzingers whom we saw live in The Westin in Dublin. Their music catalogue and stage presence were the best we had encountered and suited our needs perfectly. It was a pleasure dealing with Katie and Padraig and on the day everything went perfectly. We had requested more of a rock feel to the party band and the 5 piece didn’t disappoint. The Ratzingers had everyone up on the dance floor and played the audience really well.
I would have no hesitation in recommending The Ratzingers for wedding ceremony and party band.

Mark & Roisin

We were so pleased with the Ratzingers, they played at our wedding at the end of April this year. The music throughout the day was really great and contributed massively to the fantastic atmosphere at our wedding. We all had such a great time dancing and I've had so many comments since about how great the music was. It was a delight to be greeted before the reception by the jazz trio and the band were so inclusive getting some of our family members involved. Katie in particular made us us feel comfortable with the tricky first dance and throwing the bouquet etc...


The Ratzingers played at our wedding in Faithlegg House Hotel, Waterford. From the moment we first contacted Katie she was an absolute pleasure to deal with, no email went unanswered and all my worries about song choices etc were put to rest. The night itself went absolutely amazing, the floor was full from the moment the band started playing until the last song. The quality of the singing and the music coupled with the enthusiasm of the the lads meant that the place was rocking all night long! Every age group was catered for and there was really a party mood created which is exactly what we had hoped for. Katie has an amazing voice and the lads are all superb musicians, we've had so many enquiries about the Ratzingers from our guests since the wedding!
Thanks a million for a brilliant night!
