The band were simply magnificent! They played a fantastic set and were the talk of all our guests on how good they were and the entertainment they provided. We were absolutely delighted with both the service provided by Hireaband - The Entertainment Experts and the band The Emerald Thieves. I have and will continue to recommend you guys to any friends/relatives.
Fantastic band - all of our guests commented on how good they were. A good variety of song choices for guests of all ages. Cannot thank you guys enough - you were amazing!
Saints & Sinners were an absolute dream! They created a personalised cover of Cosmic Girl for our first dance which was just perfect. We adored the Irish music, as did our guests. They drew people onto the dance floor instantly and the whole experience was unforgettable both vocals and musicians. I truly felt like I was in my beautiful home country but in rural Northumberland. Robert was so helpful and communication was great. We also had the manned DJ set after the band played which was hijacked by a few of our guests for a sing song! Highly recommended!

The band were just brilliant. Arrived in plenty of time, introduced themselves and set up without affecting our guests. The music was phenomenal and our guests all commented on how much they enjoyed the band and the set list they played. Even those who don't dance were on the dance floor! We could not fault them and would highly recommend them to anyone. We would like to thank them for making our wedding night a fantastic experience.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you from my husband and I for helping to create the most magical wedding day that we could have wished for. The first dance arrangement of Titanium was completely perfect, and so many people commended us for picking an Irish band too! We loved being able to get up and join in the singing and (I think) the guests seemed to enjoy our performance!!
Once again, thank you ever so much and I hope we get to dance to your brilliant music again sometime soon!
Can I just pass my on a massive thank you to you and the band. You guys surpassed my expectations of wedding bands! Guests were complimenting you and even the staff at the venue were impressed. We had an absolutely brilliant time and will be recommending you guys. One last thing, the first dance song (‘Lover’ by Taylor Swift) I couldn’t believe how amazing it was, it was beautiful and Anna was so good at singing it! Thanks again x
Saints and Sinners were absolutely excellent. Myself, Ross and all our guests thought they were great. My friends were asking who they were and how I found them. Thanks very much!
I could not have asked for better for our wedding. 100% recommend them.
We thought the band were absolutely excellent. Great set list and very professional.
Would definitely recommend them or have them again!
Hireaband made the whole band booking process so straightforward. Thank you so much Irving for your help and patience.
We absolutely loved Saints and Sinners, we just sent them an email, pasted below FYI.
Hi everyone in Saints and Sinners,
Thank you so, so much for making our wedding so incredible on Saturday. Absolutely everyone has told us how phenomenal you were, we’re so happy we chose you guys and even happier that you agreed to come all the way down to Bucks for us. Some people have commented they’ve never danced so much at a wedding, and that’s all down to you. Thank you.
Thanks also for your patience with the endless emails over set lists and surprises etc, we hope you didn’t mind too much.
We’ve had a sneak peek at our wedding photos, nothing of you guys just yet but as soon as we have the rest, we’ll share them with you in case you’d like to nab any.
Thanks a million and we hope we get to dance to your tunes again!

Simply brilliant. Great set list. Talented musicians and great style. Learnt our chosen songs at short notice which meant a lot. Even more so that they let me sing with them and even set up an iPad with my lyrics. So flexible and accommodating...I know for a fact that they went above and beyond compared to other wedding bands.
Also really laid back and flexible in terms of performance times.
They were absolutely amazing they made our night so special and a lot of our guest said they were really good.
Saints and Sinners played our wedding and they made the night! Their sound is fabulous and their range of music is just amazing. They are such a lovely, friendly group too. I would really recommend them!
Thank you so much x
Excellent band - Dance floor was full the whole time and received many positive comments about all the band. Would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a fun, party band for any occasion.
Saints and Sinners were incredible from start to finish! They truly helped to make the evening amazing and all our guests commented on how fantastic they were.
They were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them.
To everyone at Hireaband thank you for helping us choose and organise a brilliant band.
This band is AMAZING!!!!!! Saints and Sinners are well worth the money, guests said it was the best band they had heard in years. Wish we could have carried the party on into the night, the dance floor was packed from start to finish :)
Saints and Sinners set was absolutely superb, we loved every minute of it!!! We've had so many fantastic comments about you all saying that you are the best band they have ever heard!! Superb in every way :)
Wow, you guys are incredible, was great talking to you. We've been to so many weddings on both sides of the pond and Saints and Sinners are hands down the best wedding band EVER! I love my live music but I have never seen any band play such a wide variety of styles so convincingly. You were so authentic with the Irish stuff we actually thought you'd travelled over from Ireland especially to play the wedding. We're now heading back to Dublin with a handful of Saints and Sinners business cards to recommend them to everyone we know getting married back home. Really, THAT GOOD.
The best band I have ever seen, bar none. I booked them for my 50th. What a fiddle player. Awesome.
Just back from our honeymoon and wanted to thank you for the wedding music. Saints and Sinners were absolutely amazing and everyone has been raving about you since. A few people have asked whether you sell CD's and how they can go about getting one? Thanks again.
It was very easy to book Saints and Sinners through Hireaband, and throughout the whole booking process, Hireaband were very helpful, professional and quick to respond to any concerns. The band themselves were excellent, we had a lot of positive feedback on how good they were from our guests! I would definitely recommend Hireaband and Saints and Sinners. It was the most stress-free aspect of wedding planning! Thank you!
Hi, we would just like to say a huge thank you for the superb entertainment on our Wedding Night. The feedback has been excellent from all the guests and you definitely made the night. No doubt I will be coming to see you again soon. Thanks again!
We watched Saints and Sinners on a few occasions before finally approaching them and were delighted when they agreed to play at our wedding. We shopped around quite a bit beforehand (as you do) and while some bands offered cheaper quotes, many were a lot more expensive but for us, none were able to offer us anything close to the show supplied by Saints and Sinners. It was like having two completely different bands for the price of one. The Irish music got everyone right in the party mood and the rock and pop songs had the dance-floor crammed. A pleasure to deal with. Thank you for helping make our big day so special.
I booked Saints and Sinners for a St Patrick's Day show plus a meal at the hotel this year expecting around 120 guests to attend. We ended up having to add extra tables when 270 people turned up! It was a fabulous night. Delighted.
I cannot recommend Saints and Sinners highly enough. I booked the band for a charity fundraising event that I was organising and asked them to put together a couple of sets – one Celtic and one rock and pop. For events like that, having top quality entertainment on the bill both helps sells tickets in advance and makes a big difference on the night, putting people in a party mood and loosening their purse-strings when they’re being asked to donate a little bit more to the good cause. Saints and Sinners were fantastic. Musically, they were outstanding; more than that, they really got the room jumping and interacted brilliantly with my guests. The event was a bigger success than I expected and the band played a major role in making that happen. Book them now!
Fantastic band, dance floor was always full. Professional, patient and polite. Have already recommended to others!
The band was amazing. There is nothing else that needs to be said. Simply amazing. A fantastic day that was made ten times better by such a fantastic band. Every single person up dancing, singing and clapping. The band was incredibly understanding to our needs and pulled out all the stops at a very busy period for them and with only 2 weeks notice. We can not recommend this band highly enough. Booking this band is a sure fire way to guarantee an incredible night that no one will forget in a hurry. Thank you all so much. We had the best night of our lives.
