It was actually my best friend getting married to my cousin and I couldn’t have chosen a better band!…Colin and the band were absolutely fantastic and really interacted with the one point he even had the bride & groom and bridesmaids up on stage with one of the wedding guests playing the drums..I have had numerous calls from guests yesterday and today (including the DJ), saying what a great day it was and how the band made the evening absolutely unforgettable…Can you please pass on my thanks and appreciation to the band. I can’t possibly thank them enough..Kindest Regards”

“Hi Cliff…The Dublin Raiders performed again and they are becoming a fixture of the Stanhope Show. When it comes to Sunday evening the show has finished, bar the beer tent, and everybody just wants to let their hair down. The foot stomping Dublin Raiders are brilliant they get the audience going and are a great finale for the show. We will be booking them again for 2016”.
