Established in 2003, Vegas Nights has become one of the leading and most trusted suppliers of top class entertainment for weddings and the corporate sector in Ireland. We have performed at weddings and functions in every top venue in the country and count among our long list of corporate clients many of Ireland’s biggest and best known companies, institutions and charitable organisations.
Choice, quality, reliability and value for money are the key attributes that differentiate us and set us apart from the rest of the pack. But perhaps the best thing about booking Vegas Nights is peace of mind, knowing that the entertainment for your special day is being taken care of by truly capable professionals and is going to be simply amazing and brilliant.
Price and availability?
The two questions we get asked most frequently are: are you available and how much do you charge. To check either simply submit the form in our Contact section.
With regard to price, the amount we charge to perform at a wedding is typically in the €1700 to €3000 range and is dependent on the following factors: the size of band required, the location of venue, the time of year (we give considerable discount for off-peak bookings), the day of the week (again, considerable discounts are available for mid-week bookings) and how far ahead you are booking along with a number of other factors. We pride ourselves on always offering the best possible value for money.
How many people are in the band?
The standard Vegas Nights performance for a wedding or corporate function uses a five piece live band, both male and female lead vocalists backed by live drums, bass and guitar. This core band can, to suit requirements and budget, be reduced in size or expanded to include, among other options, a two or three piece brass section, a fiddle or string section and up to four singers.
Where are you based and how far do you travel?
We are based in Tipperary, Kildare and Dublin but travel to weddings all over Ireland. We perform nationwide. Our normal operating area however is encircled by a line made by connecting Dublin, Athlone, Limerick and Cork and then back to Dublin following the South East coast.
Do you supply a band and DJ package?
Yes we do, with our DJ playing from when the band finish until 2 p.m. or later by special arrangement. The advantages in availing of this option are: a smooth transition between band and DJ, the number of different suppliers is reduced at an already very busy time, a saving on the overall cost and of course, and very importantly, you have Vegas Nights' assurance of a top quality service.
What time do you normally start at and how long do you play for?
We play for a period of about two and a half hours at a wedding. The time we start at is decided by the couple getting married and is usually around half nine. We break briefly about half way through the show to coincide with the serving of afters food when provided. If a wedding runs late and we are unable to start on time we will, at the band's discretion, play past our planned finish time and try, whenever reasonable to do so, to play for the origionaly planned amount of time.
Will you play something for our older guests, some waltzes perhaps?
We most certainly will. In fact, it's our aim to play music at your wedding that suits all of your guests the entire night. Impossible, you say. Well maybe it is, but much of the older music still has relevance for younger people today. Likewise, the older generation find a lot of the modern music very appealing. Keeping everyone happy is simply a matter of playing the right tunes in the right way.
When will you set up, how long will it take and will you make a lot of noise?
We will set up as soon as the meal and speeches are complete and on receiving the go-ahead to do so from the hotel manager. Given access to a clear stage area, we take less than forty-five minutes to set up. One hour should be allowed for between the planned time for completion of meal and speeches and the planned time for the bride and groom's first dance. Noise levels generated during this process are low and not an issue. It is quite normal for the guests to remain in the room throughout.
Is it possible to arrange for the band to arrive earlier in the day and set up before the meal?
This is an added service we are happy to provide but it is something we have to charge for. The good news is that it is almost never necessary. There are down sides to having the stage in place and your band's equipment in a prominent position while your meal is being served.
I was at a wedding recently where the band were so loud it was ridiculous. Someone from the wedding party asked them to turn down but I don't think they did. Could this happen if we book Vegas Nights for our wedding?
This is the nightmare of every bride and groom, we've all heard the horror stories. Rest assured, this will not happen with Vegas Nights. The truth is, it won't happen with any professional band that regularly play weddings. We will be constantly monitoring all aspects of the show throughout the night including the volume to ensure everyone is enjoying the evening and having a good time.
Our wedding venue is insisting that our other wedding suppliers have their own public liability insurance so that they will not be relying on the hotel's insurance should there be a claim. Do Vegas Nights have public liability insurance?
We do and can supply to your hotel the relevant paperwork should it be required. This is a good question to ask as the answer may give an insight into how your band, or indeed any of your other wedding suppliers, conduct their business.
We have a song in mind for our first dance. It's not very well known but it's special for us. Will you be able to play it?
We almost certainly will but please don't view this as a challenge to come up with a song that we can't play. If you feel that your chosen song may be a bit obscure just let us know what it is about a month before your wedding and, if we don't know it, we'll learn it and have it for you on the night.
Your repertoire seems vast. How on earth are we going to decide on a set list?
Don't! Working with a set list can be restrictive when performing at a wedding. We know from experience that it's far better to choose the music on the night as it progresses. That way we are free to play the music that best suits your particular crowd, thereby keeping the dance floor full, which, after all, is what everybody wants.
We are very interested in looking into the possibility of Vegas Nights playing at our wedding. What do we need to do?
Contact us by phone or email or through the form in our Contact section and check our availability and price for your date and venue. Then, even if you have seen us play before, it is a good idea to come along to see us at one of our showcases. Here you can see and hear first-hand the various options we have available and descide which one suits you. Once you are certain Vegas Nights is the band just let us know the good news and the date will be yours. You will be sent an online booking form and we will require a deposit of €300 within ten working days of booking with the agreed balance to be paid on the night. Formal confirmation of your booking with us will be sent to you, put this in your wedding planning file and put your feet up.
Here are some nice things people have said about us.
We had seen Vegas Nights play at a few functions before we booked them for our wedding last December. There was always an exceptional atmosphere when the band where playing so we decided that they would be perfect for our wedding. To deal with Dave and his band was a pleasure and they made the whole process easy for us and answered any questions we had about music, lighting etc. Their set is the best I have seen in many years and the night of our wedding was made even more special because of the energy and professionalism they brought to the stage. The songs suited all ages and from our point of view they made the wedding for us as the crowd never left the dance floor from start to finish. That was our biggest worry, as is the case at most weddings. What if no one dances? Well for us the question was will we ever get the chance to sit down? All band members can sing and are gifted musicians so the range of music they can play is fantastic. All we can say is that Vegas Nights are absolutely unbelievably the only choice you can have for your wedding, we can guarantee that they will make the day even more special than you can imagine and people are still talking about them to this day after our wedding.
JJ & Deborah Grace.
To Dave and all the crew.
Would just like to take this time to thank you for playing at our wedding on 21st May 2010. From the time the hotel recommended you to the evening of our wedding you were by far the most helpful people I have dealt with in a very long time. It was the best night of dancing and singing ever ... all ages were on the dance floor the entire night and everyone has been talking about you all since. I have already recommended you to 2 friends for their weddings and would not hesitate in recommending you again. Next big family occasion I will be in contact! Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to all the band members and thank them for a very enjoyable night.
Lorraine & Wayne Nolan.
We have engaged Vegas Nights for our Christmas party season for each of the past ten years. They approach their work, both on and off stage, with a vibrancy and professionalism that makes them a pleasure to work with and a favourite with our guests.
Vegas Nights have a proven track record and we have no hesitation in recommending them for weddings and functions.

Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge, Co. Kildare.
We have booked Vegas Nights for numerous corporate events over the past five years. We recommend them to all of our wedding couples without hesitation & have booked them for our New Years Eve Gala Ball every year.
They continue to provide world class live entertainment and are constantly updating their profile in keeping with current music trends. We love to work with them as we find them to be reliable, flexible & professional at all stages of the booking process & they have always provided a quality performance for our clients and for us as clients.

Below are some comments gleaned from the discussion forums of other well known websites. These words were written about us to people requesting advice on bands for their wedding. They are comments made by impartial people who could not have known we would be aware of them.
We would like to sincerely thank these and all the other people who have supported and encouraged us over the years, for without their kind words of praise, we would not be convinced that what we do is good. Thank you.
we saw them by accident in February when we went to see another band for our wedding. There were two weddings on in the hotel! We both thought they were brilliant and would have booked them but they were not available for our date. We were very disappointed as they are really nice and had the dance floor rocking.
"We had originally wanted a different band but went to a function and saw them and both of us thought they were great. They had everyone up at a do and it was a Wednesday night, people were heading to work the next morning. That was a good test for any band!!"
We are just back from honeymoon. Back to reality and a recession it seems but keeping optimistic and living by our memories of our Big Day on 13th September 2008 in Ballykealey Manor House Hotel.
It was a fabulous day made all the better by all our music and trimmings. Our band was Vegas Nights and they were absolutely fantastic. People kept saying they could not believe how many people stayed on the dance floor all night. There was a good mix of music - sufficient waltzes, jives etc. for older crowd but loads of excellent mix for younger folk.
A lot of our wedding group got delayed coming to hotel from church (lost actually) so the dinner was delayed which meant the band did not get to start until well after 10. But they were brilliant and actually played on extra time for us to make up.
I would highly recommend them as well as our chair covers company and cupcake/cake maker so I will post separate postings on them. Ballykealey was absolutely fantastic too I have to say and Angela and Ian took superb care of us - a great venue.
If you are looking forward to your big day I am so jealous. I wish we could do it all over again.
"Seen them at a wedding in the Seven Oaks in August this year and I have to say they were fantastic, the dance floor was full all night, they have a great set up, lights etc. - would highly recommend them."
Vegas Nights played at my wedding on Friday last and they were spectacular. The floor was full all night. Everyone surrounded us as we danced to our first dance and just about stayed off the floor but after that it was jammed all night. It was a Scottish/Irish wedding and at one stage I saw David (lead singer) holding onto the speakers in fear that they were going to fall over. We had a marquee wedding in my parent's garden (hence the unsteady speakers) and I have heard that some of the neighbours drove down to the front gates of our house and sat there listening to the band play.
You don't need to worry about suggesting music they know exactly how to get the crowd going. They are worth double what they charge, they are amazing. I have seen them perform 3 times now and they have been fantastic each time. Go with them!!
