Hi Katie,

Please convey our thanks to all the members of the Whole Hog Band for making David & Heather's wedding such a memorable one. The music was brilliant and they played to everybody's taste. We have been complimented by many of our guests on the music and have passed on your details to a number of couples who are due to be married next year. You may be coming back to Donegal again ?
Many thanks for all your help and professionalism.

Huge huge feedback from all our club members. Ye put up a stunning night for us last Friday. Lots of us figure that it was the best night we ever had in the club. Ye got it spot on and brought the house down. So many people have spoken glowingly about the band.

One of the line dancing girls is getting married next year, and mentioned that she’d love to book ye for the wedding, so she might be giving ye a shout in time.

Thanks again. Ye were a pleasure to deal with!!


Hi guys, well here we are nearly a year later and i'm only getting around to saying a huge thank you now! You played at our wedding and only yesterday did we have someone still mention just how fabulous our band was! We had an absolute ball and you played an absolute stormer... could not recommend you more.... just excellent! Thanks so much and we hope to see you again soon!

Hi to all of you! I can't believe how long it's taken me to type this message! You played at my wedding in Kippure during the Summer and you were amazing! My guests (young and old) are still talking about you and asking who you were! I have never seen so many people (for a wedding) on the dance floor all night! Thanks for being so patient and waiting around due to everything running late! Thanks for also playing requests from my guests. You were great! Hopefully I'll be able to pop around to one of your gigs when I'm next in Ireland!


Will you please pass our thanks to the band for playing the BBQ after our wedding. They were really great and such nice people! We were delighted with them and just wanted to say thanks.
