If you’re a musician playing in an Irish folk band, what is your busiest day of the year? You guessed it, St Patrick’s Day will have been blocked out in the diary several months in advance. So, if you’re looking to hire a traditional band for your St Patrick Day’s event, you might have missed the train. But don’t despair, as we have put together an alternative entertainment mini-guide for Paddy’s Day.
Modern Barn Vibes
Banjo Lounge 4
Is your goal to get punters out on the dance floor? Go for a more modern barn style band and get the both of best worlds. Headliner act Banjo Lounge 4 gives you everything from Eye of the Tiger to Tainted Love performed with both banjo and double bass. Perfect for large venues and pubs.
The Ukes of Hazzard
Pop, rock and funk songs like you’ve never heard them before. The Ukes of Hazzard is guaranteed to lift everyone’s spirits and get them in the party mood with ukuleles and acoustic bass.
If your event calls for a more laidback type of entertainment, opt for an acoustic duo playing mixtures of modern songs and oldies. This is perfect to keep the energy high amongst your audience, whilst still letting people socialise with friends. Here’s two of our top suggestions.
