Thank you so much The Trips & especially Neil for the amazing performance you put on at our wedding! From the acoustic reception music, to the walking down the isle music right through to the late night DJ-ing you created a magical atmosphere throughout the entire day. Everyone is still raving about the fantastic music, crowd interaction & quality musicianship. Neil you sir are a gentleman, you made the planning process so easy and enjoyable before and during the big day. We definitely will not hesitate recommending you to friends as the service you provided was second to none. Once again thank you so much for making our day/night so memorable!

A note to extend a massive thank you to you and the band for putting on the show of the year at our wedding in Ballybeg. It honestly was the best music, atmosphere and energy of any wedding ever, everybody says so! You are so talented and the way you performed, entertained and made everyone feel included was absolutely fantastic. The dance floor was buzzing all night, an absolute credit to you guys. We've had countless comments on your performance from lots of our guests and we say that most sincerely.

"We were onto a complete winner from start to finish....The Trips along with Neil spearheading the event was the most professional, courteous and easy going part of the wedding we had to coordinate. From our introductory email exchange through to coordination communications and event itself, The Trips were so accommodating, flexible but most importantly invested in the big day with us. It felt like a personal service in which they cared that made the day even more special. As for the event the words of one Andy Gray....'take a bow son'! Legendary....super crowd interaction, quality musicianship and a 'get the party started' kind of vibe! The acoustic music for the ceremony was spine tingling....superb. All in all....Win with a capital W!

We would absolutely recommend the Trips to anyone! You are a fantastic band that had the dance floor hopping from start to finish at our wedding, we have been getting nothing but rave reviews from all our friends and family ever since. From our first dealings with you it was a seamless process, I really appreciated that you guys were so professional and extremely easy to deal with. Loved the version you played of our 1st dance song choice and especially loved the finale. Simply brilliant! Thanks so much and we hope we see you guys play again soon!

Jean & Shane - July 2015


We had the best night ever. Thanks so much for everything. You guys were great and absolutely brilliant to work with from the word go. Thank you for editing our first dance. It worked perfectly. The mix of music you played was spot on as it had everyone out on the dance floor all night. Thanks again.

John & Julie - June 2015


Guys, thank you so so much for such an amazing performance! Everyone just kept telling us how much they loved you and the common quote all weekend was "best band ever"! Everyone was so buzzed up after it, your enthusiasm was so infectious and it was obvious you love what you do.

We looked at a lot of bands but as soon as we saw The Trips we knew straight away this was the band we wanted and needed! Right from the outset, you and the band were so accommodating and friendly and absolutely lived up to all expectations....I dont think we left the dance floor all night.

Anyone out there looking for a band to celebrate with, wedding or otherwise, should book the Trips immediately before its too late. This is the band you need to have at your wedding - The Trips will make your night!

There is no doubt whatsoever that our wedding would not have been the same with any other band and we both want to thank you so much for an unforgettable evening of fun and dancing! We both hope to see you perform again very soon.

The Trips really helped make our wedding into an amazing day. Beginning with our first dance, which the band played for us, through to the last song of the evening, they had the dance floor full of people. We really appreciated the little efforts - being dressed up to match our black-tie wedding and tailoring the set list to our taste in music. Most importantly, they played like a true rock and roll band, with no cheese in sight!

James & Grainne - May 2015


No words can do these guys justice but we're going to have a go at it: The Trips are truly excellent. Their very high standard of musicianship coupled with a song selection that will keep any range of Wedding Party highly entertained and on their feet. Thanks so much for being part of our day!

Lynsey & Rachel - May 2015


We both thoroughly enjoyed the night and the whole occasion, to which The Trips contributed significantly. We very much appreciated the efforts that you and the band made to satisfy our requests for specific songs throughout the set (including the song for the first dance which was pretty moving for us). This attention to detail helped make the music feel far more personal and relevant for the night.

It would be no exaggeration to say that the people we have spoken to since the wedding have all commented unprompted on how good the band were and what a difference  you made to the evening. I know that some people took your business cards on the night in order to recommend The Trips for some upcoming events.

Both Elaine and myself would like to see The Trips again if the situation was to arise, and we would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone for a similar event. We found you all very professional and communications were very prompt and nothing was ever a problem. Many thanks again to you and the band for helping to make our wedding day a very memorable and enjoyable occasion.

Fergal & Elaine - May 2015
