"I can’t tell you how many compliments we’ve had on the day and since about you guys. I got one just now that said ‘The wedding band were amazing, we barely sat down all night’. I was really impressed with the level of polish you have, it really shows that you’ve put the time and effort in as a group. I was also very impressed by how you adapted the vocal styles the different songs. I noticed my cousin asking you for your autographs at the end! Rock and roll! "October 2019

"Have seen Goodfellas Before and knew they were going to perform. Wasn’t disappointed – amazing performance and showmanship – people were talking about them for weeks! They also managed the whole music programme playing pre recorded wedding music between sets and taking the time to make sure that everyone’s favourites were on the playlist – even if they had to learn the songs! A total package you wont regret booking. "October 2019

"Good Fellas played our wedding in Wales and you really did rock the place. It was such a great night and our friends talked about the music more than the dress. I cant recommend you highly enough. Most brides and grooms spend the night talking to their guests but we really wanted to party on our wedding night and dont think we left the dance floor. It was just what we wanted and we wish we could do it all again. "January 2018

"We booked the fantastic wedding band Good Fellas for our wedding after being very impressed when we saw them play in Worthing. Their sets at our reception were amazing, a real highlight of the day, helping to make it even better than we could have hoped. They got everyone dancing to all our favourite Britpop songs and more, and we were very pleased that they learned and played brilliantly the obscure song we’d picked for our first dance. "May 2017

Not only did they play all our requested songs perfectly, they learnt some new ones for us and these they played better than we could have ever imagined. When I hear the originals now I am taken straight back to memories of the wedding thanks to their slick performance. Ian has a brilliant voice one minute he sounds like the singer from the killers, the next kings of Leon and he now does a brilliant Jimmy Barnes/ Cold Chisel. Good Fellas are awesome. "April 2017

"Everyone we’ve spoken to since has commented on how much they enjoyed the band and what a great night it was. We hired the Good Fellas wedding bands to headline our mini-festival wedding – Wedstock. They absolutely blew all the wedding guests away, providing two hours of top-notch music that had everyone from the age of 7 to 70 dancing the night away. I have to say if you want a wedding or party band and music matters to you then look no further than Good Fellas – they are an awesome band, talented bunch of musicians and as it happens they are also a bloomin’ nice bunch of lads.

We have had so many positive comments from guests both on the night and since, they really made the evening into a great party. It was an amazing back catalogue of indie tunes that had the dance floor full and rocking all night! Goodfellas were flexible, polite and easy to contact throughout, even taking the time to learn our obscure favourite song! We can’t recommend them highly enough.

Every single person there commented on how good they were and even those who can’t dance (myself included) couldn’t help but get up on the dance floor.

"They were fantastic! The guests loved them and they really helped make our wedding a success. They did a perfect job in picking the right songs, getting the crowd involved and all the guests dancing. Everyone was dancing all night and didn’t want them to stop playing. They also put together a great DJ set for us for the remaining hour after they finished playing. Finally, we were also really impressed with how they learned and performed our requested first dance song with only a couple of weeks’ notice – again, they helped make this very memorable for us!

Thanks for being so accommodating with regards to our choice of first dance song and learning ‘You do something to me’ at such short notice. On tidying up the hall the following morning we found a copy of your setlist. With me being a fully fledged ‘gig geek’, this was a pleasant surprise as I have countless playlists on my ipod of concert setlists that I’ve had the fortune of attending. So you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve created one of your show so Hannah and I can re-live the experience time and again. "October 2014

So many of the people at the party said how great you were and what good taste I had in bands so you have also helped up my credibility and coolness with my mates – another bonus!!

They had a repertoire full of songs that we loved, a world away from the usual wedding standard dross, and could also learn anything else we asked for.

The band rocked a wedding reception full of professional musicians and music fans, and we couldn’t have asked for more. Hire them. Hire them now. "July 2013

"When we began looking for a wedding band we knew exactly what we wanted, but couldn’t find one locally. We began looking further afield, but honestly didn’t think it would be feasible to fly a band from England to the west coast of Ireland. We contacted Goodfellas because (a) they sounded magnificent and (b) they had toured internationally before. Dealing with the lads was an absolute breeze and any reservations we had were quickly put to bed. And on St Patrick’s weekend, 2013, the boys flew over and squeezed themselves into a small room in a big old Father Ted-type house. There they transported us all back to the 80s & 90s and rocked until the walls creaked, windows warped and the sweat of a 150 people, in various stages of sobriety, soaked through the knotted floorboards into the ancient foundations. We can only imagine it was all part of their magnificent master plan. "June 2013

Needn’t have worried – the band brushed up on more 60’s music and read and performed to the audience in the amazing and intuitive way we had seen them deliver before.

"It was really important to us to have a great band playing the music we love at our wedding, and Goodfellas did just that! Our first dance was not originally in their repertoire but they were more than happy to learn a new song and played it beautifully, including some unexpected but excellent trumpet work! As soon as the first dance finished the dance floor was packed and remained so until the end of the night. We have such great memories of dancing like crazy with all our friends and family to our favourites songs, played by a really talented band, so thank you for making that happen Goodfellas.
