Raves and Reviews

They say actions speak louder than words. However, as we cannot physically take you to one of the weddings where we've performed and let you experience it firsthand, we'll rely on the endorsements of our delighted couples for now. Here is a selection of the feedback we've received in recent months.

For more incredible reviews, you can also visit us on WeddingsOnline.


Amanda & Brendan 3rd September 2022, Cabra Castle

We also wanted to reach out to thank you so much for your help with our wedding on September 3rd at Cabra Castle. Everything went so perfectly and we couldn’t have imagined a more amazing day. Thank you for helping to make our day so special! All of the band members were so great. We asked for Barcelona and we got Barcelona. Our friends keep talking about how fun the guys were. Our bodies are still sore from non-stop dancing. We hope the guys had fun as well! I hope we get the chance to party together again! Thank you!



Meagan & Mike 8th August 2022, Kilkea Castle

Now that the busyness of our wedding has settled and we have made it back home to the US, Mike and I wanted to send our sincerest thank you for helping make our wedding day perfect! From learning our first dance song so quickly to providing a truly incredible setlist and DJ set, we cannot thank you enough! Our guests could not stop raving about how amazing you all were and how you made the dancefloor so fun! Thank you so much and we wish you all the best with the rest of this busy wedding season!



Michelle & Paul 24th July 2022, Brooklodge Hotel

Myself and Paul would like to say a huge thank you to Sway Social. They were honestly the best band!! Our dance floor was never empty and I danced all night. All our guests absolutely loved the music and many wanted their name. They were all so lovely as well. The DJ was also great. There were a few guests on the dance floor that never get up and dance so it really was fantastic.


Kim & Sam 20th May 2022, Ballymagarvey Village

We just wanted to pass on a big thank you to Gavin and the rest of the Sway Social band for their music and DJ’ing on our wedding night. Everyone commented on the music being brilliant. And most importantly, their cover of "All I Want is You" for our first dance was amazing and really put us at ease.



Cliona & Stephen 28th April 2022, Lough Rynn Castle

Please can you pass our thanks on to Gav and the Kooky Ukes and Sway Social. We had an incredible day on Thursday and they kept the dance floor full the whole night! They were just incredible! Thanks to you also for your efficiency, such a pleasure to deal with!



Laura & Luke 22nd April 2022, Morrison Hotel

We just want to thank the guys in Sway Social from the bottom of our hearts for putting on an absolutely incredible night for our wedding… They were so professional and made the night so special from start to finish. We’ve lost count of the amount of people who were singing their praises and commenting on the amazing music. The atmosphere was electric! The dance floor wasn’t empty even once throughout the night and there were a lot of sore feet and voices by the time Gavin finished up the DJ set! They really were the perfect fit for us and we are so thankful to them. We would do it all over again if we could! Thanks again for everything, Laura & Luke x



Eavan & Michael 9th April 2022, County Arms Hotel

I just want to say a huge huge thank you to you for all the organizing and the lads for the band and DJ last week. The band really were amazing and the dance floor was never empty, each song after song was just unreal! And as for the DJ, it was like he knew every song we liked and the craic people had! So many have asked us about you and complimented the music. I can’t thank you and everyone enough! I’m so glad the way it all worked out for us and you guys were there on the night. Thank you so much for really adding to our day.


Annie & Padraic 18th March 2022, Ballymagarvey Village

I just wanted to send a huge thank you to the band for playing at our wedding. They were unbelievable with a great mix of songs for everyone and really got the party going! The music really made the night and Gavin had no problem playing our many, many requests for the DJ service!



Orla & Mike 11th February 2022, Clanard Court Hotel

Sway Social are an amazing wedding band! They had the floor full all night and a lot of our guests commented on how great they were. They played something for everyone and their 90’s dance set in particular was a huge hit. I would highly recommend them.



Jessica & Stephen 30th December 2021, Johnstown Estate

I just wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you to the amazing band Sway Social. They did a brilliant job and played a brilliant set at our wedding and I’m so glad we were able to book them.



Triona & Paul 29th December 2021, Amber Springs Hotel

I’d like to pass our thanks onto the lads in Sway Social and the DJ for the great job they did at our wedding on 29th December in Amber Springs. They were all great, we loved the music, please pass on our thanks and a big thanks to the DJ for calling Paul’s uncle with special needs onto the stage to play on his guitar, it made his day. Thanks again Triona and Paul



Kelly & Mark 20th December 2021, Westin Hotel

Hi Joanna, Hope all is well. Wanted to drop you a note to thank you so much for all your help with booking Sway Social. Can you please pass my thanks onto the band? They were absolutely incredible. So accommodating and an absolute pleasure to deal with. They helped make our wedding extra special. Many thanks Best, Kelly



Katy & Shane 6th November 2021, Mount Wolseley Hotel

We are absolutely thrilled that we booked Sway Social for our wedding. We didn’t get a chance to attend a showcase before the big day but they did not disappoint! The guys kept the floor full from beginning to end and everyone was raving about how good they were! They played a fantastic mix of songs and they seriously know how to keep a crowd going. We also booked our DJ with the band and he was brilliant, changed up songs as soon as the dancefloor would start to clear and got everyone back up again. Would recommend them to everyone!

Katrina & Tadhg 24th August 2020, Brehon Hotel

We were so lucky to have Sway Social as our band for our wedding. They were an absolute dream to deal with and they managed to even get my non-dancer uncle out on the floor all night. As it was a Covid wedding, people suggested that we not get a band, we are so glad we didn’t listen to their advice because the band made the night! Thanks for a great night, people still talk about you five months on!



Stephen & Teresa 21st February 2020, Rathsallagh House

Just a quick email to say myself and Teresa were very impressed with the lads on Friday, our speeches went on for a bit longer than expected but the lads made up for it by not stopping the tunes at all. A lot of our guests were very complimentary also. So thanks for adding a great deal to what was a great day. Thanks Stephen and Teresa



Rachelle & Amar 7th December 2019, Moyvalley Hotel & Golf Resort

Rachelle and I just wanted to say thanks to the band for playing at our wedding on the 7th December, they were absolutely brilliant and kept the people dancing until the end! Also, Gavin was a brilliant DJ and we were very happy that he managed to seamlessly mix in some of the Bosnian songs with the wedding classics. Both the Irish and international guests kept talking about the band in the weeks after the wedding so we just wanted to thank you again for everything.



Jennifer & Ciarán 23rd November 2019, Killashee Hotel

Hi guys, Apologies for such a delay in sending this but on behalf of myself and Ciaran thank you so much for playing at our wedding on Saturday, 23rd November. We absolutely loved every minute of it and our guests have complimented that the band and DJ music were great! Thank you so much, Jennifer and Ciaran



Paddy & Karen 19th November 2019, Bellingham Castle

We can’t believe it is almost one year since our wedding day and this is just a short (and very late) note to say a huge thank you to Sway Social and the DJ for playing at our wedding in Bellingham Castle last November. The band was fantastic! Great song selections from the guys, which kept the dancefloor full all night and boosted the party atmosphere. Many guests have commented since on just how brilliant the band and DJ were. It was a pleasure dealing with you in the lead-up to our wedding and with the band on the night – nothing was too much trouble, the set-up on the evening was unobtrusive and the transition from band to DJ was seamless.

2020 has been a difficult year, but we hope 2021 will mark a return to normality and Sway Social can return to doing what they do best – delivering great performances that get the party going!

Again, our sincere thanks to Sway Social for playing at our wedding and for a great night’s entertainment!

Best wishes, Paddy and Karen



James & Lisa 11th October 2019, Barberstown Castle

We would like to thank you and all the band members of Sway Social for providing music on the night of our Wedding in Barberstown Castle last October. We had a great time dancing the night away to a great selection of songs performed by the band to an impeccable standard. The dance floor was packed for the whole night which is a testament to the quality of their performance! I’d like to thank you all for your courtesy and professionalism throughout the process.



Eileen & Edward 5th October 2019, Bellinter House

We had our wedding on the 5th October last in Bellinter House. Myself and Edward (along with all the guests) were blown away by the band. The dance floor was full all night. I couldn’t have picked a better playlist if I had tried. They are just fantastic. People are still raving about them 5 weeks later! So thanks a million.



Cathy & Parnell 28th September 2019, Waterford Castle Hotel

We wanted to pass on our thanks to the band for being absolutely amazing. They kept the dance floor full all night and people had so much fun! Everyone at the wedding - young and not so young - had a ball. The part when we were spinning to the Scottish highland music was a personal highlight for me! Sincerely thank you so much and I will be recommending you to everyone who will listen! Thank you for an epic party, Cathy and Parnell



Hugh & Mary 21st September 2019, Moyvalley Hotel & Golf Resort

We had the guys from Sway Social as our wedding band and DJ recently. From start to finish they were great. Easy communication, fast responses and always very professional. They arrived on the night and were invisible while setting up. Played an excellent mix and were quick to spot what the dancers in the crowd liked. We were delighted with these guys. Highly recommend.



Helen & Gary 17th August 2019, Ashley Park House

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Sway Social! They recently performed at our wedding in Ashley Park on the 17th August and they filled the dance floor all night. They were a delight to deal with and the DJ (Gavin) was an upbeat and warm professional who truly loves his job. The chemistry between each band member is overwhelming and they truly are the perfect combination. Thank you all so much for making our night the best night of our lives and I wish you all the best of luck in your career.

Many thanks, Helen & Gary



Jennifer & Michael 15th August 2019, Clanard Court Hotel

Hi Sway and kooky ukes!

I would like to say a huge thank you to Jonathan and Gavin and all the band for a brilliant experience on the 15th August.

Everyone commented on how great the music was and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. I never left the dance floor all night and the mix of music was fantastic!

Thank you so much again, Jennifer and Michael
