The Hat and the Fiddle band were absolutely incredible! We had so many compliments from our guests, asking about them and saying how good they were. Marcus is super friendly and when I asked for as much Irish music as they had, they were happy to oblige. I would 1 million percent recommend them to anyone who wants to have the most amazing evening entertainment! Thank you so much to everyone in the Hat and the Fiddle band and we’re already trying to come and see you guys again! Love The O’Learys

Evening lads, Just a quick message, you played our wedding on Sunday. I wanted to say thank you very much! You were outstanding, more or less everyone I spoke to said how good the singer in the afternoon was and the band in the night!! I avoid the dance floor when I’m with the Mrs, unless I can swing my shirt I have no moves and generally this causes an argument, otherwise I would have been the front man there!
