After finding these guys on hire a band & watching their showcase we knew we had to have them!!! Tom & the guys were one of the best things about our Wedding day. They were utterly sensational!! From the moment we called everyone on the dancefloor during our amazing first dance, everyone was on the dancefloor all night! The ceilidh was fantastic, the soultrain was unique, and everyone has not stopped commenting on how brilliant they were. Thank you boys for an unforgettable evening! You totally made it for us! We will most definitely be looking to get you guys again for another celebration! By far the best band we've ever come across!!!!
"We were absolutely over the moon to have Tom McGuire and the Brassholes booked for our big day. They were the highlight of our day. All of our guests were raving about how good they were and the dancefloor was completely packed all night. The band even managed to join in on the dancing with their version of the SoulTrain. Highly talented musicians and amazing performers. We're already thinking of our next excuse to book them!"
Thanks so much to all of the Hireaband team and a huge thanks to the band for making our day so special. The guys absolutely stormed it and everybody loved them.
Tom McGuire and the Brassholes were amazing! They sounded fantastic and kept their energy up to the very end, just what we wanted. They had a great variety of old and current songs. Would highly recommend them. They were the most expensive band on offer but I think great value considering the amount of guys that play, they all sound great together.
Just wanted to drop a note to rave about Tom McGuire and the Brassholes... They were absolutely phenomenal!! Even better than we could have hoped for!!
You guys had us within the first few seconds of your showcase video... Proud Mary is my absolute favourite so when you saved it for the last dance, you made our night!! You are all fantastic musicians and showmen, you got everyone up dancing for most of the night with your own spin on such classic tunes. The soul train was genius - sorry we took so long to get it and start the train!! And when you performed our chosen first dance song that you learned for us - we were blown away! Tom, you sang it better than Robin Thicke did - amazing!!
I'd recommend this band to anyone who wants a band that do more than just play the hits - these guys smash it and bring so much energy and funk to great music. I couldn't count the number of guests who commented on the band and how great they were - luckily a number of which have sons and daughters getting to that age - hopefully lead to some more wedding bookings because I know I want to be dancing again at someone else's wedding to Tom McGuire and the Brassholes!
Tom McGuire and the Brassholes.....truly brilliant band! Great set and full of energy from the start to the end....the dance floor wasn't empty once. Guests continue to rave about how great Tom and the guys performance was. I wouldn't hesitate booking them again or recommending them.....5 stars!
Hireaband were fantastic to work with in the lead up to selecting our band through to the days before our wedding reception. We weren't sure what we wanted but we knew what we didn't want and Hireaband sent us through a selection, all of which ticked the boxes. Going through the band's videos and song clips was fantastic and allowed us to select our perfect band without waiting to see them at a showcase - and they didn't disappoint! Tom McGuire and the Brassholes had us in the first few seconds of their showcase video... Proud Mary was what won us over. And they were PHENOMENAL on the night! Thanks to the whole team - you are amazing!
The band were absolutely amazing! Everyone commented on just how brilliant they were. The dance floor was packed all night long - just how we like it!
Hireaband were really easy to deal with and everything was dealt with very professionally and efficiently, giving us total peace of mind from day one.
What a great service from Hireaband - and the band itself, outstanding!! Would definitely use again for any future events. Thank you.
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
The band were absolutely incredible. They made the wedding non stop fun and had everyone dancing. I want to get married every weekend and have them play!!
Thanks again guys x
The band were amazing and the dance floor was full the entire evening. All our guests commented on how fantastic they were. They definitely made our celebration a party to remember!
Tom McGuire and the Brass holes were amazing. The dance floor was packed all night and we received so many compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the band. So pleased we booked them- totally worth it!
Tom McGuire and the Brassholes are without doubt the best wedding band we have ever heard. Although this may sound biased it is true! Tom and the band are all anyone has talked about since the wedding. They are so energetic and the dance floor was filled all night. We loved them and feel they truly made our wedding! Thanks guys!
Superb, great bunch of lads, highly entertaining.
