About Lively Irish Band

One of the highest rated and reviewed Irish tribute acts available for private events.
Celtic folk band
Darlington
Public liability insurance of £10 million

If you're looking for a highly rated, experienced, well established, professional and compact, very lively Irish music act for your event then these are the guys (and girl) for you! This Duo / Trio / Four piece have been touring the UK and Europe for over 15 years, have played at thousands of events, won countless awards and are simply great fun. Featuring a selection of live instruments on top of pre-recorded drums they give off a huge sound while fitting into much smaller spaces and budgets than a lot of other lineups. Their 2 x 45 minute sets include all the classics you'd expect from an Irish tribute act like 'Tell me ma', 'Irish rover', 'Galway girl', 'Molly Malone', 'Whiskey in the jar', 'Wild Rover', and many more lively covers of bands such as 'The Pogues', 'The Dubliners', 'The Saw Doctors', 'Flogging Molly', 'Dropkick Murphys', The Fureys' etc. Their no nonsense attitude, spectacular musicianship, lively set lists, clear passion for the music they play and wicked sense of humour all adds up into one of the best Irish tribute acts that you can book for your event.

We saw this group perform at a theatre and were blown away by how much fun it was, we then booked them for our own event and they were brilliant.
