Everyone loved them

5 stars - The Whiskey Priests are Highly Recommended
booked The Whiskey Priests for their Wedding in Lincolnshire August 2022

“The band rocked! They were so friendly, engaging with the crowd and they seemed to be really enjoying playing for our wedding guests. Can't thank them enough. The playlist was great, the sound was great. Need to find a reason to book them again.”


An Amazing Band - Could not have Chosen Better

5 stars - The Whiskey Priests are Highly Recommended
booked The Whiskey Priests for their Wedding in Merseyside December 2021

“The Whiskey Priests were excellent and the guests absolutely loved them. Amazing musicians who got everyone dancing. Being a Liverpool wedding, the audience know their Irish music and everyone was full of praise for the energy and musicianship. We requested Nick Lowe's 'Peace, Love and Understanding' for our first dance and it was perfect. Not a dry high in the house. Absolute professionals. Highly recommended.”


Fantastic Irish music - All guests loved them

5 stars - The Whiskey Priests are Highly Recommended
booked The Whiskey Priests for their Wedding in Cheshire December 2021

“Blew us and the wedding guests away with their Irish music, fantastic throughout, made our evening wedding reception so much better with their music. They had to adapt their set as the large hall we were in didn't have the best acoustics for the amps so instead, they went full acoustic which gave it a much more personal feel. Interacted with the crowd with anecdotes and with the people dancing, and created such a good experience for all the guests. ”

5 stars - The Whiskey Priests are Highly Recommended
booked The Whiskey Priests for their event

“The Whiskey Priests have played at Uttoxeter Racecourse several times over the last few years and have never let us down. Firstly, and this is important, they are nice guys to deal with and professional to the end. Always on time , they bring their own PA and always give a quality performance of Irish singalong dance along covers! Thanks to The Whiskey Priests this years St Patrick's race day event was a total sellout. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any event or party. ”
