Absolutely brilliant! We had great feedback from our guests on their set list and we were made up that they’d learnt No Doubt & Fleetwood Mac for us. The sound was spot on and the band friendly and approachable. You were known as ‘The band that can do it all’ from our relatives and we’d definitely recommend you or hire you again for future events! Thank you so much for making our evening full of fab music, questionable dancing and good times!

The Apollos were outstanding and a fantastic addition to our wedding celebration. The music and instruction for each of the ceilidh dances were amazing and made the evening extremely enjoyable for both those familiar with ceilidhs and those who were new. Aside from the ceilidh music they performed more mainstream music to fantastic quality. We were very impressed and we got many compliments from other guests as well. We would highly recommend The Apollos to anybody looking for a band for an event, especially if they are interested in ceilidhs but even if they are not, the music on its own was more than enough for our recommendation.
