Absolutely amazing, the best wedding band about! From the moment they started the dance floor was full and never emptied. Shane and the band were an absolute pleasure to deal with and couldn’t be more helpful . Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed! More...
The BEST band out there!! Harlequin played at our wedding in July and were absolutely amazing from the moment they stepped out on stage! We had booked Shane and the guys for our wedding before we even heard them play as we had heard such amazing reviews and knew we could trust Shane to put on a fantastic show! The energy these guys give is incredible! Our dance floor was full from start to finish! They played a mixture of old and new music to ensure every guest enjoyed the night! Shane the lead singer is an absolute party animal as well as being an amazing singer and musician! All the band members are so versatile singing a range of different music and playing various instruments throughout the night! Myself and my husband did not leave the dance floor all night - we enjoyed every second of it and would love to do it all over again with Harlequin! Loads of our guests were talking about the band after the wedding and still are! I can't recommend these guys enough - they will make your wedding night the best night of your lives!! Thanks again to Shane, Emily and the guys! More...
Absolutely amazing!!! From the minute Shane and the band started they had the dance floor full for the night. Can’t thank them enough for creating such a memorable night for us and our guests - they were the talk of breakfast the next morning! ! If you want an amazing singer and band who are energetic, lively and great craic then you need Shane and Harlequin!! More...

We had Harlequin at our wedding last week Amazing band. The best in Ireland without a doubt! Check them out and book, you won't be disappointed
It was an amazing show that Harlequin and Shane put on for the wedding. We were blown away by how good the band were. They were able to play a huge array of songs, no matter what was thrown at them they performed with class. Shane had the crowd revved up and the dancefloor was full all night. Shane never stopped the whole night keeping everyone 9n their toes and the transition to DJ which Shane did himself was seamless. We are delighted that Harlequin played at our wedding. Great experience for everyone. Every person at the wedding has been talking about how good the wedding was and it was the band that made it. Shane was able to gauge what the crowd pleasers were and he got as many people involved as much as possible Thanks so much to them. All the band were very nice also. There was even a nice surprise of a videographer with them taking footage all night which means we will always be able to remember the music from the night, not that anyone there would be able to forget it anyway. More...
WOW WOW WOW from start to finish! Sooo delighted we booked Harlequin. They were the first item on our wedding planning list and was thrilled when they were available. Shane was a complete gentleman from start to finish and always so helpful. His interaction with us and the crowd was second to none. They played everything that we wanted and pulled off the performance of the day for us last Saturday and the dance floor was always full. From the sound, the lighting to the gentlemen themselves I didn’t have to worry about one thing it was all perfection... thank you so much.No hesitations in highly recommending them! AMAZING... it was like being at a concert not a wedding.❤️ Camilla & Tommy Byrne ❤️ More...
We had Harlequin as our wedding band on the 12th of July in Kilronan Castle and they absolutely lifted the roof off the place! ! The most comments we got in the following days were where did ye find that band and they were phenomenal! The floor was filled all night long and they created the most epic atmosphere with the music and the lighting rig. Shane was brilliant to deal with, was all about personalising the night for us and we honestly could not recommend them enough! More...
Food is good
Harlequin are a highly professional band who perform at all of Irelands prestigious venues and hotels. The band are the finest Musicans available in the country and they take great pride in their performances. I highly recommend Harlequin for all events. More...
Best wedding band out there superb
Mad and amazing bandHighly recommend.Great craic
Quite simply the best band there is bar none! No hesitation in recommending Shane and the lads; a joy to deal with if you’re organising a corporate event or wedding.
Harlequin are Ireland’s best band; there is no doubt about it. If you want your guests and yourselves to have a memorable wedding then book these guys. My dance floor was full the entire night; they knew how to get the party started!! Shane became more then just playing at my band, he came that afternoon to help set up to ensure the day went smooth, he even took on extra roles such as letting off confetti cannon / introducing other entertainers. He came up to me over the course of the day asking if I needed anything done; this is what you call professionalism and working with a gentleman. Nothing was an issue for Shane; you could tell he took every little detail on board from our meetings and he was there to help us have the most perfect wedding. The whole band were amazing; still getting messages asking who they were!! Thanks again lads!!! You were AMAZING!!!! More...
Great front man, excellent musicians , great set , floorfillers by trade !!!
Wedding day band and absolutely rocked it !! Quality crew of talented musicians all gents too ,come highly recommended
Wonderful band. Amazing musicianship. Super show, class production.
Seen the lads several times now. Lots of fun while retaining class and musicianship. No mean feat. Recommended.
You won’t find a better band than Harlequin. We had them play at our wedding on New Years Eve a few years ago and people are still talking about them. If you want the dance floor rocking all night then you just have to book these guys. Simply the best and I’d recommended them every time. Still haven’t come across any band quite like them . More...
Best band ever. Couldn’t fault them in anyway (well actually I could... they don’t play in venues as often as they did before). Also very friendly, they go all out and would do anything for ya. 110% recommend even listen to them singing on there own web page while doing my housework, love them so much. More...
AMAZING wedding band. Shane and the boys played our wedding and delivered everything they promised. Truly masters of their craft. Kept the dance floor full and everybody entertained. Ours was a destination wedding, we are from the US, and many of our guest said that Harlequin was one of the highlights of their trip. Shane was easy to work with and always available to answer any questions. Wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again!! Thanks for the great memories! More...
We were very lucky to have the guys perform at our wedding. Really made the night for everyone. Are still often the topic of conversation amongst our family and friends. EXCELLENT!!!!
Two weeks on and I still can’t put into words how amazing Shane and the guys were when they played at our wedding! No review I write will do them justice! Our dance floor was full all night and our guests are raving about them ever since! Kilronan Castle was hopping the entire evening! You don’t book a wedding band with Harlequin; you book a show ! Some our guests commented that it was like being at a concert not a wedding!!! Shane and the guys gave us the night of our lives! My feet have just about recovered from dancing!! Without doubt the best money we spent on our big day! I’d do it all again to have the guys play for us! Thanks so much x More...
The best band not just for weddings!!!! They just rock! You won’t need anyone else!!!
Couldn’t have asked for a better wedding band ! Had everyone on the dance floor until 3am and wanting to stay longer ! I’m asking all friends to book them so I can see them perform again! More...
Could not rate these guys higher. Brilliant band.
Harlequin turn a wedding into an event! Sensational band and super frontman! They play a great mix of music and keep the dance floor full all night long!
Hey there,I just want to say there are bands for events and then there is Harlequin who are just mind boggling in what they do to make an event memorable for everyone. These guys are amazing from the attention of detail they put into making a gig successful.I have had them for the past three years in Waterford for an annual Ball I organise on behalf of a club I am involved in.These guys are 3 Arena material and every year I cannot believe I am lucky enough to get them booked.I create the date of the Ball around these guys schedule as opposed to the other way around.They are Kool & Fantastic.Words escape me.Roll on February 2020 More...
Unbelievable energy . Amazing band and phenomenal frontman . You will find it hard to get a better event experience than this Top marks
absolutely the best band around. . ! !
These guy's are an amazing high energy and quality band. They really know how to get a place moving.
Harlequin played at my wedding a year ago and they were without a doubt the best money we spent on the day. Phenomenal energy and the dance floor was full all night. Amazing!
Super, high energy band! They have everyone on the dancefloor all night. Highly recommend!
Frances Mc Carry
Seen these play at a wedding and they are a super band they had the whole place up rocking all night.
We had Harlequin play at our wedding on 30th December last year.. They made our night absolutely perfect.. Had the dance floor packed from start to finish. . Our guests were raving about them for months afterwards.. Genuinely couldn’t of asked for better, Shane was a joy to work with from the day we had them booked.. Would love to do it all again :) More...
Having worked with Shane and Harlequin Band for almost three years I can say it has been an incredible experience. The energy, customer focus and service level is off the scale, on and off the stage. Harlequin don’t just want their clients to be satisfied, they want them to be impressed. I know I am. More...
Absolutely amazing from the start of the night to the finish (early in the morning!) at our wedding 4th March in The Broadhaven Bay Hotel ! We booked Harlequin after hearing them at my sister in laws wedding, never even checked any other band out we knew they were the best !! Shane knew exactly what to play and kept the floor full all night, pity couldn't have them every Saturday night in the local !! Thanks again to the band, we were so delighted! Such craic !! More...
Harlequin Wedding Band.
what can i say.....
They are everything you want in a band for your wedding.
They're a great band with skilled musicians.
The equipment used for sound, lighting and production of are a very high quality, this of course enhances the experience,
In communicating with with band through their representatives, Shane and evening during the event they listened to every detail and add it to your night, to make it even more special.
We had a great day at our wedding everything was fantastic then Harlequin came on and just pushed it over the top, All our guests loved them, we loved them.
They played our first dance I have to say it was better than the original, then the second song got the crowd moving, I can still here the horns in my ears, the sound quality was so good.
I really can't say praise them enough.
Make sure and book the lead man to Shane to DJ too and keep the night going.
My wife and I look forward to a showcase night so we can see them again.
such a fantastic addition to our wedding,
A great band, a great night, one we will never forget. More...
Elaine and I had Harlequin as our wedding back in March this year and to be honest they were a key factor in our guests having such a great time.
Harlequin was recommended to us by a friend and from our initial enquiry with Shane, we knew we were making the right decision.
Shane took us through every step of the day and was in regular contact with us with ideas on the songs we liked, the church music and the choice for our first dance. It was a really fun part of the process for us and meant we could relax in the knowledge that the music was going to be perfect on the day.
The fact that Harlequin could cater for every musical aspect of our wedding was a huge plus. We just had one point of contact and everything from the church to the pre-reception right through to the band performance; dj and singsong were taken care of.
The church music was fantastic and Shane’s voice and the acoustics in the church were first class. The music for the pre-reception in Dromoland really helped to get the guests relaxed and ready for the night ahead. We had piano music for the dinner and again it was the perfect fit for the venue and our wedding.
After the dinner and speeches, Shane really got the party going. Everything from the intro for our first dance was superb. The music throughout was excellent and exactly what we expected. The band’s interaction with our guests throughout the night was fantastic.
The common thread from all our guests after the wedding was Harlequin and how they really enjoyed the night. Elaine and I could not recommend Harlequin strongly enough to couple looking for a band for their wedding. Thanks again for making it such a great night for our guests and us.
Elaine and Raffaele. More...
We work at weddings every week so it was brilliant to be on the other side for a change. I can’t say enough good things about the band. They gave it 1000% last night from start to finish. The dance floor was full all night. Their interaction with the guests was amazing and they all really looked like they were enjoying themselves. Thanks lads!! More...

Harlequin played our wedding in November 2016 and we can honestly say that they made our wedding day.
From the start, Shane was so professional and hands on. He was always on the other end of the phone no matter how small our query and was great with ideas and advice to really make sure we got the most out of the day. We felt like we were in such safe hands throughout.
From the moment they started we knew we were in for a fun, entertaining night. For our first dance the band did Tiny Dancer and Harlequin’s version is now our new favourite version! They really got the party going after that and the dance floor was packed all night. Shane’s voice was absolutely incredible and all the band members had such energy. We also loved the videos Shane took of our guests enjoying themselves on the dance floor as they performed - it’s great to have something like that to look back at.
We also had Shane as DJ after the band and he made sure to keep the party going into the early hours.
We have never seen a wedding band like Harlequin and we have such fantastic memories of the night. Our guests are still raving about Harlequin.
Willie and I would highly recommend Harlequin to any couple looking for a wedding band. Harlequin is the best band out there and you will truly have a night that you and your guests will never forget. Thanks again to Harlequin and Shane for such a great night. More...
Heard you playing my a cousins wedding lastnight in the new park hotel and definitely without a doubt, the best wedding band I've ever heard! From the start to finish! Got all the crowd up and really made the bride and groom feel the most important people there! Sore feet from dancing today! Loved the crowd stuffing and the transition from the band onto the DJ. Thought the band was still playing! Well done! And the best of luck to your band in the future! More...
Brides/Grooms - booking Harlequin will be the BEST wedding decision you make!! Harlequin played our wedding in the K Club in March 2018 and they were just AMAZING! !!! A band at the absolute top of their game. All we wanted for our wedding was a party and boy did Shane and the lads give us a PARTY! The dance floor was full all night and the place was rocking!! I cannot recommend these guys highly enough. Its a couple of weeks now since our wedding and people are still talking about our band as they had such a fantastic night. Book this band - I promise you will not regret it!!! Thank you Shane and the lads! More...
There couldn’t be a better wedding band out there. We got married on the 9th December in Westport and it couldn’t have went better largely due to Shane and all the gang in Harlequin. They had everybody buzzing on the dance floor throughout the night right till the end. They made it their business to get in touch with us weeks prior to see what we looking for music wise and were just so professional and friendly. Really can’t recommend them enough. Thanks guys for everything More...
Thanks so much to Shane and his amazing crew, There couldn’t be a better wedding band out there. Ye had our wedding party rocking, everything was just class from start to finish. Shane you are gifted at what you do. Ye guys are super professional and worth every cent. If you are considering harlequin for any event, you certainly won’t be disappointed. Andy & Emma�� More...
Harlequin played at our wedding on the 26th August 17 and there aren't enough words in my vocabulary to describe how amazing they were.
True professionals from the start to finish and worth every cent. Everything was pure class, the staging, the lighting, the musicians. The front man Shane is gifted at what he does. He knows exactly how to interact with a crowd and get everyone on the dancefloor. Our dancefloor was packed the whole night and everyone raved about the band to us. If you are considering hiring Harlequin for an event you will not be disappointed. Thanks again guys xx More...
Had the pleasure of dj’ing after these guys at a buddy’s wedding in Killarney last night. Let me plug and play into their system just to make my life easier. Not only a sound bunch but a fantastic band who had the floor rocking all night. Thanks again folks � More...
Hands down the best band I've seen at a wedding. Shane and the lads played at our wedding in 2016 and again at my friends wedding last night and delivered the concert feel experience on both occasions.
Floor full from start to finish, complete entertainment. The right band separates a good wedding from a great one and I could not recommend these guys more.
Thanks again lads.
Until the next time � More...
Best wedding band ever! I had Harelquin for my own wedding back in 2011 and since then several of my friends have booked for their own wedding's. Was just at another friends wedding last night and the dancefloor was full from start to finish. Can't recommend Shane and the guys highly enough. They will give your wedding the extra wow factor and help create memories that will last a lifetime! More...
Harlequin played for my brothers wedding this weekend (August 2018) and were absolutely super with an electrifying set with everything from rock and roll to pop and swing to the 80s.
The best wedding band I've experienced so far and my brother and his new wife also stated they were great to deal with.
My parents are avid dancers and nothing was too much for Shane and the band, they got the few waltz, jives and quick steps in as well as keeping the place rocking. Its rare to see a band that can cater seamlessly to such a varied age group and style but the floor was full all night. It was really appreciated by my family the effort the band went to. They didn't just go through the motions and through in the two or three slow ones just to keep the "auld wans" happy and picked some fantastic tunes with exceptionally smooth segues that keep the whole place on their feet and everyone from our uncles and our friends are all talking about how class the band were.
Highly recommend these guys, top class gear and sound, excellent musicians, a fantastic showman and an amazing night. Thanks again for getting me up for the few songs, if I'd known about it I wouldn't have had so many pints :) More...
It’s so daunting booking a supplier for your biggest day but after seeing Shane and his band at a showcase event we knew we had to have them play at our wedding. Hairs on the back of your neck stuff. They were amazing and exactly what we were looking for. We booked them there and then that night as the first thing we did soon after we got engaged. To say it was the best decision we made will never summarize it properly. Our guests never left the floor that night and still rave about the band as being the best they ever seen. From meeting Shane initially to every other interaction with him and his band since has been nothing short of professional, dedicated and extremely personable. A pleasure to deal with. These guys are the best around and I would have them play again 100 times over if it was possible. A huge thank you to Shane and the guys for making our wedding day amazing. Sinead & Darragh x More...
Harlequin are the absolute best in the business. I couldn't recommend them enough. They had the dance floor packed for the entire night at our wedding. They were highly professional, competent and interested in us as a couple and the kind of music which we wanted. Their approach is personal, which puts any anxious brides mind at ease!Everyone still raves about them three years on! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone, they are just brilliant! More...
One of the 1st things we did in our wedding planning was secure Harlequin for our big night. Shane was top class from the outset.
From our initial meeting to the consults that we had along the way, he assured us that all would work out and he didn't fail to deliver.
Nothing was a problem!! I think it's safe to say that he outdid himself as I think it was nearly 4am when the final disc spun. What top class entertainers Harlequin are!!! Ye were the talk of the barbecue on the Sunday. Keep up the good work and hopefully our paths will cross again. More...
We had the pleasure of having Harlequin play our wedding on Friday September 30th 2016 in Dingle, Co. Kerry and I have to say they were absolutely fantastic! !! Shane and his crew met every request with ease. Being a huge fan of U2 and hearing With or Without You come one was one of the highlights of the evening and not only that Shanes DJ skills late in the evening added to it particulary when Thriller came on! All in all I could not recommend them enough, the professionalism from start to finish is something that makes them stand out from the rest! More...
Ok so I looked online for a wedding band and came across Harlequin. From what I saw and heard and my first conversation with Shane, I thought, that's the band!
There was a connection immediately! Sadly my wedding didn't go ahead, but it was my 40th at the same time, so with a few conversations with Shane, who was amazingly understanding and supportive, we went ahead with a 40th birthday bash! Everyone loved them, I loved them! Shane even asked me what did I want them to wear! People picked random songs, and the band could play each and everyone one of them!
Amazing band, amazing man! A must have for a wedding, birthday or whatever u want! Thank you so much for an amazing night, I know I'm nearly 3 months late with my review but that doesn't matter!
You really couldn't ask for anything better than Harlequin! �� More...
We had Harlequin at our wedding in October and it was the best decision we made! Shane and the rest of the band had everyone on their feet from start to finish. There wasn’t a song he and the band didn’t know. You’re in for the best night of your life with Harlequin. Cannot recommend them highly enough!! More...
I had a lot of fun with these guys photographing gigs in Ireland and Tuscany. They really know how to rock a room, get people dancing, and wring the most out of a night. What was really impressive was how much time they put into preparation and how much they enjoyed performing. Serious musicians, serious dedication, serious workrate, absolute professionals. More...
I was Harlequin's Road Manager for a while. They have the latest technology, equipment and some of the best musicians in the country. They put on a great performance and can play almost any song asked of them More...
Harlequin played at our wedding September 22nd. The band were amazing!! From the moment we picked them we were impressed by their professionalism and their attention to detail. The day itself was beyond our expectations. We had seen them a few times in the Hard Rock Cafe and they were fantastic but the wedding was out of this world. They were up for the craic and able to play anything requested. I don't think the dance floor emptied at any point of the night and all the guests are still raving about our amazing band. I cannot recommend the band enough! More...
Harlequin is the absolute BEST. I've been to a wedding where they played and that's why I booked them for our wedding - the dance floor is never empty and they somehow find the best mix of music to keep everyone moving & energized throughout the night. All our guests RAVED about them! Book them! More...
I was Road Manager for this band, absolutely brilliant.
They are a brilliant band, Shane and the guys get the crowd going from the very start and they never leave the floor. The team are very helpful and professional. I could not recommend a better band for your function More...
Shane and the boys were just INCREDIBLE at our wedding! Shane sung amazingly in the chapel, every single person commented on how amazing he was. Then For the reception, They just set the place alight. Thanks Harlequin for making our day one to remember and being such a pleasure to work with. Can’t recommend highly enough. More...
Was at a couple of weddings that the guys played at, they really had the place rocking, sound, lighting and atmosphere was amazing
Amazing!!! We had them at our Wedding in 2012. Some of our friends and family members enjoyed them so much that they booked them for their Weddings too. You won’t be disappointed ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...
Great entertainment and a thoroughly professional experience
I was lucky enough to photograph a wedding Harlequin played at... the dancefloor never emptied all evening...
Harlequin performed at our wedding in November 2017 and there are not enough adjectives to describe just how brilliant they were! The dance floor was full all night and the atmosphere was Electric! Shane and the lads are the best in the business and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing band for any occasion. More...
This Band played at my 60th Retirement Party Just one word BRILLIANT the lead singer Shane could not do enough for my guests They played all the latest hit as well as the standard classic and the energy the band brought to the room was electric They played many encores and I have yet to witness a crowd reaction like that one two years on and my friends and family still speak about the best party they were ever at. And I truly believe it would have happened without Harlequin Thanks Shane and the gang and I look forward to having the pleasure of you giving at my next big dooNiall More...
When we booked Harlequin, we thought we were booking a good wedding band.. WE WERE SO WRONG!!... We actually booked a band that pushed it beyond anything we could imaging. .!!! AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!! The interaction, passion and attention to the crowd is just unbelievable. !! The excitement, quality and clarity of their music is on point..!!! The best wedding bands Ireland has to offer!! Gerry & Patrica Guthrie More...
