"Great mix of classic and modern songs that kept the dance floor full"


We are married over 6 years now and we still have some of our wedding guests come up to us and say that our wedding was one of the best they have ever been too because the dance floor was full the whole night. It was my one wish that everyone was well entertained on my wedding day and I knew as soon as I heard Alan and his band that they would not disappoint. I can’t recommend them enough and thank them for making our wedding day a happy and memorable one.

We had Alan Foran performing at our wedding in Cabra Castle in October 2016 and we were really happy with the way the whole day turned out. Alan was fantastic from start to finish. From the moment he started and right through to the last song the dance floor was full and the crowd were shouting for more. Myself and Nicola requested a song for our first dance that he had never performed before and by god he pulled it off as if he wrote the song himself. We would like to say a big thank you to Alan as with your performance you made our day that bit more special. We wish you the all the very best in your new venture.

Mark & Nicola Brown Cabra Castle, October 2016
It’s one thing to have the pleasure of hearing a talented band at a wedding. It’s another thing entirely when that band delivers such a show-stopping performance at our Charity Mock wedding (Cancer Research Ireland) that guests ask for the band’s upcoming schedule so they can catch another show. With a great mix of classic and modern songs, you appealed to everyone and kept the dance floor full. Such incredible talent displayed. Beyond just the music, we received many astounded remarks about your ability to play such a lengthy set and still close with the same if not more energy than you opened with. Your performance was definitely one of the highlights of my mock wedding. Thank you also to the fantastic DJ you provided, he was also great!! Thank you and we all certainly look forward to seeing you perform again. Sound man, Alan
