Video


Uptown Girl by Billy Joel
The songs of Billy Joel really are one of the great joys of being in a covers band and Uptown Girl is certainly no exception. A little more work than usual has gone into the production of the audio here, so while largely a live recording, it has the sound of a studio production.


Vegas Nights Ceremony Music promo
A short selection of music perfect for a civil or traditional ceremony. Theresa Bradbury accompanied on piano by Ronan Dooney, this is an example of the type of songs they can play and the quality of their performance.


Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll Medley
This is an edited (shortened) live recording of Vegas Nights’ medley of rock and roll classics spanning three decades which, as you can see, keeps the floor pretty jam packed with dancers. Bill Haley’s Rock Around The Clock, Little Richard’s Tutti Frutti, Eddie Cochran’s Come on Everybody, Chuck Berry’s No Particular Place To Go, Ritchie Valens’ La Bamba, Jerry Lee Lewis’ Whole Lota Shakin’ Going On, Bill Haley’s See You Later Alligator, Elvis Presley’s Burning Love. The audio here was recorded live in Kilkenny in June 2017 with the video taken from a number of performances of the same set from around that time.


Don't Stop Believing by Journey
One of the great rock anthems. This is Vegas Nights performing as a seven piece in The Bridge House Hotel on the 30th June 2017 for Antonia and Ross Smyth’s wedding. Antonia is wedding coordinator at the hotel and knows a thing or two about picking the best band for a wedding. Joining the regular line up is Ronan Dooney and Carl Geraghty on trumpet and sax, Ronan doubling up on keys, this pair are widely considered to be the best in the business and regular collaborators with Vegas Nights. We join the action in this clip just in time to catch a wonderful solo by Carl at the end of “Walk of Life”. The clip also features band intros toward the end of the title track.



Mr. Brightside by The Killers
We played this song back in the naughties when it first came out and then dropped it as we have hundreds of other "current hits" over the years. But it's back baby! We reckon that nearly fifteen years on, Mr. Brightside is set to become a rock classic. We could be wrong, but based on audience reaction we are pretty sure we are witnessing this song's transition from yesterday's news to timeless classic.






 

Jackson & Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash
Live recording from 27th May 2017 in The Moyvally Hotel at Michelle and Daragh Murtagh’s wedding of both these great Johnny Cash classics. Standing in for our usual guitarist Paul, is Dave Keary, one of the great guitar players working today. Dave has been Van Morrison’s guitarist for the past ten years or so. See Dave on stage in The Royal Albert Hall in London with Van, Chris Farlowe and Jools Holland.


 

9 to 5 by Dolly Parton
Short and sweet, this country/pop classic never fails to entertain. Performed live here by Vegas Nights as a seven piece.


 

Don't Stop Me Now by Queen
One of the great rock songs and a huge floor filler.


 

You're the First, the Last, My Everything by Barry White
What a first dance.


 

Absolute Beginners by David Bowie
What a song. Bowie once said in an interview that he found himself crying while putting final touches to the recording because of its beauty. Slightly self-aggrandising perhaps, as he did write and record it, but definitely forgivable, it is a beautiful, beautiful song.


 

Can't Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley
One of the most perfect love songs ever written and a great first dance song, it was Elvis Presley’s (bestselling solo artist of all time, 1 billion records) 21st number 1 chart hit and has become the second most covered song of all time.


 

Pencil Full Of Lead by Paolo Nutini
One of the songs in our repertoire that really shows off how good (or bad) the brass section is. Derik O'Conner and Ronan Dooney on duty this particular night, arguably the best in the business so no need to worry.
