I just wanted to send a big thank you to the Dionnes who performed at our wedding on 4th September in Kilkenny. Originally we had booked the 9 piece band but due to Covid 19 restrictions had to reduce the booking to 4. Due to this I assumed it would be more background music rather than a big band vibe but how wrong I was! Even with just 3 singers and a keyboard player the Dionnes gave it socks and I was delighted to see so many of our guests up and dancing. For most people it was their first social event in months and everyone was really complimentary of the amazing talent on display. We were all pretty devastated when the music stopped at 11:30pm in line with current guidelines but it gave us all some very happy memories!

We had The Dionnes play at our wedding in January. We went for their 9 piece and they absolutely nailed it. Everyone was praising the music and it was probably the highlight of the day. The vocals were just incredible. All from age 12 to 80 adored the band. We could not have been happier with the quality of entertainment on the night and ease of booking the band. Fiona was very helpful when we were booking/deciding first dance etc. We also booked the bands DJ for later and he was fantastic too.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your amazing music on Saturday. The church music was flawless and all perfect song choices. Really added to the ceremony.As for the drinks reception everyone was raving about the fantastic soul singers. We just loved it all. You guys were perfect.Sorry I didn’t get to thank you in person - it was a very busy day.I wouldn’t be surprised if you get a few calls from people at our wedding as they were all asking who you were.Thank you so much for adding to our day. We are so happy to have had you there.

You really were absolute stars on the night. The energy in the room was electric and the dance floor was full for the entire set. Some of our older relations, who usually wouldn’t stay so late, told us they felt like they were at a show and loved every minute of it. The hotel staff were also talking about you the next day, asking where you were based and how we found you….the word is out!!!
You are all star performers and your hard work and dedication to music shines on stage.
Emma & David
We had The Dionnes at our wedding last Fri 4th January in The Slieve Russell Hotel and boy did they tear the house down. We couldn't have been happier. The dance floor was full all night. Our guests didn't stop complimenting the band! Those girls can SANG!!!!!! I even got up with them myself! Would highly recommend this band to anyone. Fiona was a joy to deal with from the beginning.Thanks guys xxx
Chery & Joe
Wow wow wow!!! What can we say.. well firstly, sorry it's taken us so long to write. We have been on honeymoon and only just back so getting round to all our thank you's.
You guys were by far the high-light of our evening. Your music was just fantastic and the set-list kept everyone on their feet all evening. Our guests have been raving about you. Saying how fantastic it is to see a female band and how great the style was. You were the best choice by far and i'm so glad you were able to make the date for us.
We work within the music industry and had so many people there from record companies that were all singing your praises.
Thank you again for being so fantastic and I know you had a long journey to get to us.
We'll be booking you again I'm sure!
With love and appreciation for your amazing talents.
Niamh & Brendan
We just wanted to say another big thank you to you and all the Dionnes. You were absolutely the highlight of our wedding (along with the weather!)When we were planning our wedding we spoke about what was most important to us and decided it was music and making sure our guests had a great time- you more than ticked both these boxes for us. We’d watched videos of you guys but your voices are all out of this world in person. I’ve already had a few people texting asking your details and we got so many compliments about our choice of band on the night. The ceremony music was superb also and it was fantastic to have the music we wanted with no fuss. A few people commented they thought we were playing pre-recorded tracks because Sharon’s voice was so amazing. On top of this you guys have been a pleasure to deal with which is also really appreciated.Thank you for helping make Friday the best day for us.
The Dionnes are absolutely fantastic. Their song selection is perfect, their medleys keep the party rolling, their musicianship is top quality, and with 9 musicians they've got all the songs covered. Particularly impressive is the powerhouse vocal harmonies. As mentioned in earlier reviews, the dance floor was filled the entire time. If your occasion is special enough to warrant music, please do yourself a favor and hire this band. I'm the brother of the bride and made a last minute request to have them back-up me and my dad for a special song. I'm still blown away that they, within a mere portion of a set-break, were able to learn the song. This made the evening so much more special and memorable for everyone. They went above and beyond for us. I am forever grateful!
Cormac & David
The Dionnes played our wedding at Bellingham Castle this year and every single person that we talked to afterwards told us how much they loved the music - "This band is amazing! Where did you find them?". People who normally don't dance were on the dance floor all night - and the music, the vocals, the performance and the costume changes were all just fantastic.
Thanks also to DJ James, who picked up the moment The Dionnes guys finished and gave us exactly the kind of music that kept everyone on the dance floor. In fact there was one moment where a French friend was thinking of leaving, when he just happened to play Dalida (one of our French favourites) - and she decided to stay up for the rest of the night.
So thanks again for a fantastic evening. We really couldn't have been happier!
John & Aine
Hi Fiona and band…We just want to say a huge Thank You to you all… You were amazing! We really could not have been happier and our guests have not stopped saying how much they enjoyed it.My father is a retired classical musician from the NSO and for the first time in my 44 years I saw him and a couple of his old colleagues get their groove on! They loved it, I don’t think they have seen that style of music done properly like that before, with a buzzing dancefloor!And you were so obliging with our first dance (beautiful version), the Abba medley and Proclaimers, and letting the lads join you for a couple of numbers. We really do appreciate it.So, thank you again, and we’re looking forward to catching another gig of yours sometime soon.
Jean & Kate
I just want to say thank you SO much for everything on Sunday. The music throughout the whole day and evening was just perfect. The ceremony music was so beautiful and really made it so special. The amount of people that came to me and said the Dionnes were the best band they’ve ever heard was amazing!
And thanks again for playing on your birthday!!
We are definitely going to come see you at your gigs!
Pat & Ger
we would just like to thank you for your brilliant entertainment at our wedding, everyone loved you and it really made the evening. Please thank everyone in the band and we will definitely recommend you to anyone planning weddings or similar in the future
Thanks a mil
David & Colm
Hi Fiona,I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you and the band for playing at our wedding on the 28th December… and for allowing us to ‘sing’ with the band! You were absolutely brilliant and our guests are still raving about you. The dance floor wasn’t empty for a minute which was a great sign! We couldn’t have asked for a better band and can’t recommend you enough. Thanks, David and Colm
Niamh & Aengus
We loved The Dionnes! They were a real highlight at our wedding. The dance floor was packed all night. The girls’ voices, the brass section, dj and the costume change blew everyone away. Could not recommend this band highly enough. And Fiona was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thanks again, Niamh Take Care and good luck promoting the band.
Aoife & Shane
When it came to booking a band for our wedding we wanted a great sounding, tight group who would get everyone up dancing. In The Dionnes what we got totally exceeded our expectations. From the outset dealing with the band was a pleasure, with Fiona really wanting to find out more about us, our wedding and the music we love. Fiona was always on the end of the phone for any query and was such a support when we ran into a few small issues with our venue. If what you’re looking for is an amazing sound, incredible singers and a very professional setup, book The Dionnes now!
Daire & Orla
We cannot thank you guys enough for playing our wedding. It did many things……it kept people dancing all night and it also showed everyone in the room that a wedding band doesn’t mean the same thing that it used to. People are still talking about you! We spent months trying to find the perfect band for myself and Orla and almost gave up to be honest. You can see how people just end up with the usual generic band who are interchangeable with the next, a good wedding band is really hard to find. So thank you for making the effort to learn a song for our first dance and not just getting us to choose from a list of mushy nonsense
Thank you for the costume changes. Thank you for the choreographed dance moves. Thank you for the awesomely tight rhythm section. Thank you for the Horns ….and thank you for letting me get up to sing with you……I’ve never had the privilege to perform with a band like that before and all its done is made me want to set up a rival band!!
The Dionnes are not only the best wedding band in Ireland but arguably the best live band in Ireland period…..their ability to bring a room alive is matched by none. Amazing vocals from all 3 girls and a band so tight you could set your watch by them…Thanks for bringing the noise guys
The Dionnes were a burst of energy at my 1950’s themed Birthday party. They made sure that I was happy with their playlist before the night and were open to taking any requests that I had. Their showmanship was extraordinary and their interaction with the crowd had everyone on their feet which added a special atmosphere to the night. I would highly recommend them and be only to delighted to attend any of their up coming gigs
Ado & Claire
A huge thanks from Claire and Ado to you all. From start to finish your amazing 9 piece Soul band played an up tempo set that kept everyone dancing all night long and wanting you to stay all night! You played a wide variety of Soul classics that were up there with the originals. Your brass section really added depth to the sound. Top marks all round! Hope to see you all again soon… Thanks a million.
My friend had the Dionnes last night at their wedding and they were amazing. A really tight band of great musicians with lovely brass and fronted by three fantastic vocalists .... the volume was also spot on too, just loud enough to give a party vibe but not uncomfortable either great song selection had us all up from the first song. Highly recommended! !!
