''The best wedding decision we made was booking Long Time Coming!!!! I thought the online reviews sounded nearly too good to be true but they really aren’t, I’d be shocked if you could find a better wedding band than LTC in Ireland right now! The dance floor was full from beginning to end with the best mixture of songs to keep everyone up & dancing! The next morning at breakfast the topic of conversation around the tables was how unbelievable the band was.. when I meet people now they are STILL talking about the band! Alan was a dream to work with & had us feeling calm and confident on the lead up to the wedding. He learned & sang our first dance song & even gave Sinatra a run for his money! If you are on the hunt for a wedding band & reading these reviews then trust me when I say your search is over because you would be crazy not to book these guys! I can’t recommend them enough! Alan, Carmel, Sean, Patrick & David.. thank you for making our Wedding Day one we will never forget!''
