This band went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day ever. They were worth every penny and more! This band gets a 10 out of 10 from myself and my husband – Carly Quinn

I have to say – they were the best wedding band I have ever experienced. They had the crowd involved and kept a full dance floor from the very start!

We would highly recommend The Favours Band. We had them for our wedding. They played everything we asked for and the floor was full from the time they started until they played the last song. Mick the lead singer was brilliant at interacting with our guests and everyone loved them. –  Sinead and Alan

We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your amazing performance last week! We literally had everyone come up to tell us that you were the best wedding band they had ever heard, some even saying that they had to turn around and check that you weren’t a recorded track! You are true and talented performers.You really made our wedding AMAZING and had both our Irish and Canadian guests up and enjoying themselves….. of all ages! – John Egan

Karl and I just wanted to say a massive thank you! We loved The Favours from first time we went to see you and we hadn’t even picked a venue!On the day, you were set up before we realised and then you absolutely rocked (proof is in the photos of a full dancefloor-thank you!).Your interaction with us and the guests was excellent and even the set up with the recommended DJ was seamless. All of you were helpful and fantastic to work with and I would recommend you to anyone. – Una McGovern

Howya lads, only getting around to posting this now. Just wanted to say thank you to each and every one of you for the amazing job you did at our wedding last week. Right from the start you had the place rocking. Myself and Ruth would recommend you to anyone for any event. Thanks again for helping make our day. Hope to catch you soon. Niall – Niall O’Sullivan

The band was just class, no other words to explain them, they catered for everyone’s taste in music on the night and nobody was left without a dance. They were so professional and smartly dressed. The way the band was able to make the night so personal and engage with the crowd was exceptional. Mick and the lads were so helpful throughout the whole planning process and could not have done enough for us. We would highly recommend the lads and all equally talented musicians that gel together and blend so well to create their own great sound. They have the highest end sound equipment that leaves the music sounding like it’s off the radio. Thanks Lads, much appreciated. Until we cross paths again. Maggie and Aaron.

We booked The Favours for our wedding on the 9th of Sept. My sister had used them for her wedding 8 years ago. I hoped they would be as good I wasn't disappointed they have got better!!! These guys are very talented musicians the sound was amazing the dance floor was busy all night.

Looking for a wedding band, not sure who to get? Look no further than THE FAVOURS.. A wedding band can make or break the special day. Myself and my wife Lucy got married on 19th August and we had the best day ever. Mick from the band reassured us leading up to our special day that all would be fine. I can't recommend the band enough, the dance floor was packed from start to finish and after 2 weeks we are still getting msgs from people who attended saying how brilliant the band were. I would not hesitate to recommend The Favours. Best decision we made, apart from getting married of course... XX 👍

Cannot recommend The Favours enough!Everyone commented on what an amazing wedding band they were! They had everyone on the dancefloor, got everyone involved and were great fun! 10/10 would recommend!

A massive thank you to Mick and the band. We had the most amazing day! We had so many people complimenting you after only a couple of songs. So many people said how you got the crowd up and going from the very start even some people we didn’t expect to be on the dance floor you had them up dancing away! Everyone is still raving about you even after the wedding! Best decision we made was picking you guys!! We had so much fun we could barely leave the dancefloor ourselves! Mick was also fantastic leading up to the wedding, putting us at ease, giving all kinds of great advice and just being a great guy!Thanks again,Laura and Taylor
Taylor S.
If only I could give more stars, Mick and the Favours are an outstanding class act!! They had us up and out of our seats from start to finish. The showmanship and musical talent is second to none but they also do more than just play music. The crowd interaction pieces that they do are brilliant and they had our entire wedding party getting involved. Everyone was raving about them! Book them, you won't be disappointed!

We just wanted to give Mick and The Favours a quick review as they were absolutely amazing on our wedding day. So many people have commented on how much craic they brought to the day and how much they made the evening.The whole band are genuine top professionals who kept the (acrobatic) dance floor full the entire evening - their warm up songs were brilliant and got everyone involved.It was so brilliant to meet characters like Mick and the rest of the band, they just know how to do it and we couldn’t recommend a better band.
Sam B.
I cannot recommend The Favours enough. We just had our wedding and they were phenomenal. They had everyone up at the beginning warming up which got everyone in the dancing mood. They included my nieces who got to sing and dance with the band. I even got to show off my (non existent) guitar skills. Mick and the lads are wonderful and made sure we were happy to whole night and played all requests that came in. They sound amazing and really know how to keep the crowd entertained. We kept getting compliments the whole night of people wanting to know who the band were, so I would highly recommend anyone looking for a wedding band to get in contact with them and book them quick. Thank you Mick and the whole band! Shauna & Gavin 20.05.23 💜

Hey Mick,Just wanted to flick you a message and say thanks so much for playing at our wedding.We have had so many people mention how great you’s all were and the Aussie’s loved how you’s keep the dance floor lit from the moment you started till you finished!So interactive with the crowd 🎉Thank again,Sinead & Andrew
Sinead P.
Well we just had The Favours for our wedding and they were absolutely brilliant, from our very first dance to throughout the night. Everyone was up on their feet, very interactive with our guests and we got fantastic feedback from our guests too. This is also the second wedding I've witnessed them and they were just fabulous as ever. Do yourselves a favour 😉 and book them .

We had the The Favours play at our wedding in Clonabreany in September and they were incredible! They created a brilliant fun atmosphere and had all of our guests on the dance floor all night! They played a fantastic mix of songs and everyone at our wedding commented on how brilliant the band were! I couldn't recommend Mick & the guys enough! Thank you so much for making our wedding so enjoyable! Fiona & Cormac
Fiona O H.
Absolutely incredible. From the moment we first spoke with Mick, we were at ease and knew we were in safe hands. The lads were amazing on the night and had everyone up and involved, playing a wide range of music to suit everyone. Our guests all complimented the music and how engaging they were with us all. I can honestly not put into words how talented and lovely the band are - we would 100% recommend them! Thank you so much for putting us at ease with our first dance and for the craic along the way.
Lucy P.
We cant say enough good things about The Favours! The band were super, and certainly delivered on their promise to have the floor full for the entire night. All of our guests were raving about the music and some even paid the highest compliment of recommending to their friends looking for wedding bands!Mick was also brilliant with us during the booking process after our original band had let us down only 6 weeks out. He made a stressful situation very calm with his reassurances. We cant thank you or recommend you highly enough!!! Mary & John
Mary P.

K & P- Faithlegg House, WaterfordFrom start to finish, Mick (lead singer) was a dream to deal with. Mick is so professional and very personable. We both found the wedding planning process less stressful with a vendor like 'The Favours.'From the initial consultation and booking to the wedding night, everything ran like clockwork and so seamlessly. We cannot thank them enough for their patience and flexibility in creating the dream night for us.Everyone was on the dance floor all night long- I had guests coming up to me saying it was the best band they have ever heard at a wedding! A great mix of songs for every age group.Mick has a gift for getting people up dancing and having the craic! Mick's voice is incredible and the band sound amazing live. Very talented musicians. We were so grateful to have them play at our wedding. 100% recommend.K & P

Where do we even start? Before we got engaged, (before I even met the man I was going to marry) I knew that I was booking The Favours as our wedding band! We booked this band before we booked our wedding venue as I knew no matter where we got married - The Favours were going to have everyone on their feet the whole night.. and that.they.did!!Everything about these lads are just second to none.. their bubbly personalities shown right through the ballroom from the minute they started playing right through to their last song!! We never wanted them to end.Before they even started their set, before our first dance, they had every single person up on the dance floor; from the small kids to the teenagers to the aunts & uncles , they were warming us all up and it flowed absolutely perfect by having everyone around us for our first dance!Mick, Ronan, Robert & Patrick thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for playing such a massive part on our wedding day!!You's will always hold a special place in my heart, that's for sure.If we could do it all again, we'd book you 4 - a million times over.Lots of love,Bryan & Ally McDermott xxThe Glasson Lakehouse1st September 2022.

I would love to give twenty stars out of five! Myself and my wife are both musicians, so we were very picky about who we wanted to play at our wedding! As soon as we heard The Favours, we knew they were all top-class musicians, and we were thrilled to discover how fantastically entertaining they were. They kept the floor full from the very first song, kept the energy up all night, took requests, really engaged our guests (dance-offs, guitar solos, the lot), and their live sound as a band was stellar. Most importantly of all, they created memories for myself, my wife, and my family that will last a lifetime. Our guests are still talking about The Favours, they were the highlight of our day - we might renew our vows just to hear you play again!
Shane H.
Absolutely amazing band! They had everyone on the dance floor from the very beginning and had such great involvement/craic with the guests! The music was exceptional and guys were so professional and so much fun! We had so many comments and compliments on the band being so good at our wedding. I cannot recommend The Favours enough!
Jonny K.
Mick and the favours played at our wedding in Poulaphouca in July. Can we just say a massive thank you to you and your band. Ye were absolutely amazing, from start to finish you had everyone on the dance floor. Also the songs before the first dance are an amazing idea, have never seen that before and it set the tone for the night. Also if you are looking for an air guitar player give me a shout!
Maria O' L.
We had The Favors for our wedding in The Heritage, Killenard on Friday 19th Aug 22. I cannot speak highly enough of the band, from the very first note they had everyone up at the side of the dance floor and made the entire night so memorable. We would highly recommend Mick and the rest of the band. Not only are they top quality musicians but it's honestly like a juke box listening to them. They also did a sing along with the crowd at the start which was a real surprise and went down a treat!!! Absolutely fantastic
Connor R.
What an amazing night we had with Mick and the lads on Saturday night at my Mums wedding in the Lavey Inn. From start to finish the dance floor was full, the song selection was perfect and Mick's interactions with the guests made the night even more magical and special. Everyone who was there on the night are still talking about the band. If you're looking for a band for your wedding or event then The Favours should be top of your list.
James C.
Oh what a night we had on Saturday night at our wedding with the band The Favours, nobody left the dance floor from start of the music to the last song we would highly recommend Mick and the boys for your wedding or any function.
Mary C.
We booked The Favours for our wedding and they were honestly amazing. We cannot recommend them highly enough. Mick helped give me great honest advice to support us making the right choices for music, he was always on hand to answer my questions. The band all had a fantastic energy and brought so much fun to our wedding to getting our guests fired up and ready for a night of dancing. It made our day !! Thanks again to The Favours .
Leanne B.
Hi I just want to say a few words about the Band that played at our wedding on the above date! It took a lot of attempts for me and my now hubby Tom, but Ronan and the guys stayed with us through it all. Where do i start!!!! Amazing band , amazing choice of music 🎶 and such professional guys to deal with it. People are still talking about them honestly I couldn’t recommend THE FAVOURS enough book them ASAP so you won’t be disappointed 😃 . From myself and Tom thanks so much guys for making our day so so special
Dolores H.
Honestly... Where do I start???? Oh....My.....Goodness...... Wow, Wow, Wow. Do yourself a FAVOUR and book THE FAVOURS for your wedding, christening, communion, confirmation etc.Thank you seems wholly inadequate for what the guys did for us on our wedding day. They were absolutely FAN BLOODY TASTIC. From even before they started playing, their energy was 1000 watts and their commitment to giving us the best show ever was evident, but oh my goodness did they blow us and all our 160 guests away too.From our first dance which my husband & I arranged & choreographed with Mick, to the very last song, the guys were on fire. My new hubby & I had a wee dance routine planned to the Queen song 'Don't stop me now'and Mick got all our guests up on the dance floor pretending we were going to do a smoochy number and then they broke into the Queen number, which was actually better than the original. Everyone burst onto the floor & into the dance. It was a magical moment.My goodness, we could all feel the love in the room but set to the sublime soundtrack of fabulous tune after fabulous tune, the love in the room increased 100 fold.Every guest, bar none, loved, loved, loved them. From little 5 year olds to 85 year olds, they were a huge hit. They made our day so perfect. I don't mind saying that my husband & I have developed a huge 'The Favours' crush and tbh, who would blame us.It was an absolute pleasure to meet Mick in person. He is as cool and as awesome as we had imagined him to be. Mr. Robert Graham was absolutely fabulous on guitar and boy can he sing. The gorgeous guys on Drums & Keyboards were just out of this world. The guys all felt like family to us and that night there was real MAGIC in the air.With huge love, thanks, appreciation & a huge dose of pride.Gillian, Seamus, Donnacha & Christa Asche xx (the very happy new family)

Had Mick & the lads perform at our wedding on 17th June 2022, they were amazing didn't see the dance floor empty once. They interacted so well with all our guests, everyone said how great they were. We attended a wedding last night with Mick & the lads also performing & seen them from another perspective. I didn't wanna leave the floor, song selection was perfect. I would 100% recommend The Favours for any wedding or function. I hope to see them perform again in the future. Best of luck for the future lads & take care 💖

Mick and the boys smashed it out the park last Tuesday at our wedding at Martinstown House! They got everyone up and involved from the moment they started their set, and the dancefloor was hopping throughout the two hours they played. They are all supremely talented musicians and we were delighted to have that sort of quality of music to dance to on our special day! It was great that they included the guests by asking them to write requests down in a notepad they handed round, the only thing we would change is we would have liked a few more songs to be played from the requests we emailed them beforehand, but that is a minor detail! They were truly outstanding and we feel very fortunate to have been able to book them! Thanks so much The Favours! Ed and Karen.
Edward M.
The Favours played at our wedding last weekend and they were just brilliant. Not only did they make our night but our guests were talking about them all weekend. They are true professionals and the dance floor was never empty! Mick was so helpful in the lead up to our wedding and really guided us on all aspects of our day. I would recommend these guys in a heartbeat. Thanks so so much!
Sinead B.
The Favours were an amazing wedding band! From the minute we booked with them to the minute they arrived at our wedding they were so friendly and professional! They had our dance floor full for the whole night and everyone we have spoken to about our wedding mentioned how good the band were!!Thanks for a great night lads !!!
Aisling S.
Mick and the lads made our day with the music. From start to finish they got everi up on the dancefloor and our friends and family are still talking about how great the music was...2 months later. Cheers lads for a fantastic set, couldn't have been any better. Highly highly recommend these guys for any wedding or occasion.
Darragh M.
A class act from start to finish! You will not be dissappointed choosing the Favours for your wedding band. I personally know Mick a long time I always knew I wanted them for my wedding, it was actually the second thing I booked after the venue. From fantastic crowd interaction, beautiful harmonies, a brilliant song selection hit after hit non stop dancing and having fun the Favours know how to keep a dance floor full throughout the night. What the Favours do is amazing they're super talented and we will always remember our wedding night as one of the best nights of our lives. Mick thank you again for everything you are a bunch of legends. Check out their Insta and FB pages in my opinion the videos from my own wedding and previous weddings speak for themselves.Thanks againAnna & Eoghan
Eoghan K.

The FAVOURS!!!!!!!!! Where do I start.....from my very first phonecall with Mick, I knew we were in the best hands and had picked the BEST wedding band in Ireland for our Big day!! We had booked the Favours in 2018 for our 2020 wedding - which due to the pandemic, we postponed to 2021!! Mick stayed in touch throughout, constantly checking in, talking about our favourite music etc...2021 came... and we had regular phonecalls with Mick discussing the best craic and how the night would play out! All I can say is....WOW, the Favours were the talk of our wedding! Beyond EPIC! Got the whole crowd going from start to finish, genuinely nice guys and super talented! We are beyond grateful they were part of our big day and cannot wait to see them in a live gig again!!!! Mick and the lads THANK you!!!!! Your a pack of legends !!! Liz & Gav x
Liz T.
Mick and The Favours, where to even begin. A 5 star rating is not high enough in our opinion. From the first phone call to Mick to make the booking to our last dance it was an absolute pleasure. We cannot recommend The Favours enough and we have been sure to pass on our recommendations as have our wedding guests. Most definitely one the the best decisions we ever made for our Wedding Day.
Blaithin C.
Myself and Ewen got married way back at the start of Sept 2021! I’m only figuring out google review so this one is a little late!What can I say about Mick and the rest of the guys?! They were simply fabulous! It was back at the time when music at weddings had a big question mark hanging over it and Mick was amazing to deal with right up to the day of the wedding, no stress, no issues and always prompt with a reply! This was our 2nd wedding day as we had to reschedule our whole day and this was also no problem! He made a very stressful time a complete doddle!!The wedding itself was amazing. These guys know how to make a party really fun! Half our guests came from Scotland and they are still talking about the band nearly 6 months on!If you are planning a wedding do yourself a favour and book these guys. You can be 100% sure your guests will have the best time! Our dance floor was full all night!Thank you guys for giving us and our families a night we will always remember! ❤️

We had the Favours play at our wedding recently and OMG did they blow us all away!! They were absolutely incredible from start to finish!! Soon as they got there they had the whole crowd on the dance floor, engaged and hyped up!!! We wanted a band who could be please a crowd of all ages and Mick & the lads did not disappoint 🙂 Everyone there raved about them and they honestly made our wedding night!! They got my husband and I up on stage playing air guitar and it really was such a unique and special moment for us!! We paid €100 to have the live saxophone and this just took it up a whole new level!! Would 1000% recommend and I honestly will be booking them again in the future for any parties!! Thank you thank you to all the amazing lads for making our wedding night a dream come true!! We cannot thank you enough!!!!! Louise & Noel Brady!!

We had The Favours play at our wedding reception at Corick House Hotel.I can tell you now that the dance floor never emptied all night.Mick and the band were so professional and really made our day the best it could be.They played a wide variety of music and were great craic too.We would highly recommend them.Thanks so much to you all.Graham & Wendy.
Graham M.
What can we say? The Favours were our wedding band and were without a doubt one of the highlights of the day- got the crowd going from the very first note! Lively, entertaining and sounded great! Every guest mentioned how brilliant they were in the days that followed. Mick and the lads were super to deal with too. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to any couple that loves great live music. Smiling just thinking back! They were class!
Aoife H.
The Favours played at our wedding in Cork on the 2nd of October and they were fantastic! We had only seen videos of the band and they were genuinely even better in real life! The dance floor was full all night! Mick was so lovely and so professional to deal with and we want to say a huge thank you to all the band for being such a brilliant part of our day. We couldn't recommend The Favours highly enough and we feel so lucky to have had them at our wedding. Thanks so much! Kate & Jonathon
Kate O' D.
We had the pleasure of having The Favours perform at our wedding in Castle Durrow on 8th October. The guys were absolutely outstanding and the dancefloor was full all night. Mick was such a pleasure to deal with from the beginning. We didn't want to do a formal first dance and Mick and the guys came up with an amazing alternative which everyone loved. Anyone I've talked to since the wedding have said how much they enjoyed the music. I would highly recommend the guys for your big day and I just hope I have another big event at some stage in the future that I can have the guys come play again!
Marie F.
Honestly couldn’t recommend The Favours enough. From start to finish they were brilliant. Every interaction I had with Mick was lovely and so friendly. He answered any question I had and always so quick to get back to us. So happy we chose them for our big day they didn’t disappoint. Thanks a million Mick, Siobhan & Barry
Siobhan O R.
Myself and my Wife booked The Favours band after meeting them at a wedding showcase. Other than marrying eachothrr the best decision we made.Mick and the band went above and beyond for us both. We will always be forever grateful for them.Our dance floor was hopping from start to finish and everyone still talks about them and how good they all were.Would HIGHLY recommend 👌
Sarah O.
The Favours played for our wedding in August - well half of them did due to covid but even with only 2 members they had the whole place rocking! We did not leave the dance floor all night! Everyone had the best craic & the tunes were hopping!! We can’t thank Mick enough for making our day the best ever!! Kind regards Sinead & Craig
sinead R.
We got married in October and we had the favours play at our wedding. Mick and the guys were absolutely amazing. From the time we booked them until the actual wedding they were so professional. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid but the guys were so understanding and accommodated us on both cancellations. From the first song until the last song the guys were so good. They had the dancefloor full all night. They got our guests up at the start and we had a bit of a sing song. Its was amazing. All our guests couldn't speak highly enough about them. There is so many wedding bands out there but honestly these guys are simply the best and we would recommend them to anyone. Thanks Mick and all the guys from the Favours. We are so happy you were part of our big day.Mikaela and Darren
Mikaela C.
One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was to book The Favours. Professional, talented, real musicians who know how to read a room and can keep the dance floor packed all night. One of the most special moments of the day was our first dance ‘Billy Joel’s - Just The Way You Are’ which was performed live by the band! It’s something our guests still talk about to this day. My advice - book them - you won’t regret it!
Jayann M.
We booked The Favours for our wedding in Mayo, Mick was fantastic with communication in the run-up and the guys were absolutely brilliant on the night itself!! There were people on the dance floor all night and we had so many of our guests comment on how excellent the band were afterwards. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band with a difference, who will ensure that the dancefloor is never empty!Thanks guys 🤗
