We could not recommend them highly enough. We dealt with Pat in the run up and having to postpone our date and he was a dream to work with. All of our guests were raving about them the next morning. keep up the super work guys. Thanks so much Isobel & Dave Lynch, Knockgraffon Cahir (Facebook Review)

Wedding Park Hotel Dungarvan 31st Aug 2018
We would like to thank SOUTHBOUND for playing at our wedding on the 31st of August 2018 in the Park Hotel Dungarvan. Everyone says get a good band and venue and everything else will fall into place, from the first time we saw Southbound and met the lads we were sold, we had no reservations or worries about them. They proved this and more at our wedding, the dance floor never dropped in numbers all night, they kept the people dancing and involved and still managed to cater to all age groups attending, no mean feat. They are an excellent bunch of lads who give 110% when performing and we could not recommend them highly enough to any couple getting married. The people were raving all weekend about the great lively wedding we had and this was due to Southbound, and the all the girls especially Lorraine were complaining the next day about their sore and swollen feet a great sign of a good night!!
Thanks to Pat, John, TJ and the lads for making our wedding night one to remember. Lorraine & Gary from Lismore and Donegal (facebook review)

Wedding The Anner Hotel Thurles 22nd July 2017
Hi John and Pat,
We just want to sincerely thank you and the band for a fantastic night at our wedding in the Anner Hotel on the 22nd July, 2017. The band had the crowd on the floor for the entire night with a great collection of songs for all our guests. They were all praising you the next morning for contributing to such a great night….wondering where did we get you ?! You could really see the experience and the professionalism of the band. It was clearly evident that this band have their craft well-polished, knowing exactly what the crowd want and then giving it to them in spades. What more could you ask for?
People always say that there are 2 things that you need to get right for any wedding…the food (which was excellent!) and the band…..and Southbound did not disappoint. The fact that you checked in with us a few days after the wedding was very thoughtful and much appreciated. I would highly recommend you to others. Thank you so much for making our day so memorable and special.
Best Wishes, Brian and Helen from Newcastlest/Thurles (email)

Wedding Kilcoran Lodge Hotel 1st June 2013:
Just to tell you I had a great time at Kilcoran last Sat. Foot-tapping
music all night. Great stuff.
A suggestion: find Walking On Sunshine by Siouxie and the Banshees. It is
one of my favorites and is just your style.
Hope our paths cross the next time I am in Ireland. Was blessed with the
weather this time – the country never looked so beautiful.

Extracts from “www.weddingsonline.ie” Forum
Our band were SOUTHBOUND and they were amazing. Everyone is still talking about how great they were. The dance floor was full ALL night. They even learned the slow Waltz version of Cascada’s “Everytime We Touch” for our first dance. They were simply spectacular. Kermit and I are also lucky enough to be loosely related to Louise Morrissey, she was a guest at the wedding and very kindly sang 2 songs with the band. She is a complete lady and she was just great!
We had SOUTHBOUND and they were brilliant, the floor was packed all night. Even the video man said it was one of the easiest weddings he did as the floor was full, so he hardly had to move the camera off the stand all night. Since we have got married, we have given their details to loads of couples and they have played at 3 of our friends weddings since. They really suit every age group and my parents are older but love waltzing and really liked the band.
