Tom McGuire and The Brassholes

Just had the pleasure of Tom & the Brassholes playing at our wedding reception. We were inundated with compliments about the band with pretty much everyone saying they were the best they had ever seen.

They managed to keep the dance floor filled all night long with a huge variety of songs, executed superbly (their ceilidh set was awesome also - a great version of what can be a underwhelming section of the night)

You will not find a better group of quality musicians to really make your day unforgettable.

Many thanks again, Julie & Iain
