Here are some Questions we regularly get asked.
Do you play country Music?
Yes we do. Although we are not a Country Music Band we cover a broad range of Irish country and American Country standards.
Why Should I book a live Band for my Wedding?
Live Bands, play and sing live anything else is a mime act. Live Bands can cover all styles of music and can also facilitate singers from your guests if required.
Will you learn our First Dance Song?
We always prefer to Learn and perform the First Dance Song live whenever possible. We also won’t be offended if you prefer to play the Original version on CD.
How many songs do you normally cover at a Wedding?
We play on average for around 3 hours with one break so we manage to get through a lot of 3 min songs.
Should my fiance and I play oldies music at our wedding?
The Jukebox Kings can play oldies, chart songs, country, rock , swing, Disco and every other style you can think of. We suggest a nice balance of everything to suit all of your guests tastes.
What are some good Wedding Songs?
Well this one is always hard to answer, however over the years we have seen songs come and go out of fashion. Funnily enough the songs regarded as cheese are often the ones that get the best response and have stood the test of time.
How can you ensure that our guests have a fun night?
We set out every night with the same aim, to have fun and enjoy ourselves, make great music, play great songs and not take ourselves too seriously. This always ensures that guests at a Wedding share the experience, often the stage , sometimes the performance and always the fun.
My Fiance is from Australia, America, Canada, India, South Africa, Germany, Holland, Poland……. Can you facilitate music for their family?
This one comes up regularly as so many Irish people have found love on foreign shores. Don’t sweat it we have covered multi-cultural wedding on a great many occasions. The secret we found is to ensure we include something for everyone that makes them feel at home and part of the fun.
Do you facilitate singers from my family joining the band onstage?
The Jukebox Kings will always allow singers to join us onstage only with the expressed permission of the couple in advance.
Do you take requests from the Dance Floor?
Yes within reason we will play requests from the dance floor so long as the songs are appropriate for the audience and occasion. (No Gangsta rap before 12.am) Once the DJ set kicks in and the Children have gone to bed anything goes.

What should I pay for a Wedding Band in Ireland 2018?
Prices of Bands vary just like any other service. There are many styles, sizes, quality and level of professionalism available. This inevitably makes this a difficult question to answer in one sentence. The Question perhaps you should ask is how much am I willing to Pay for my Wedding Band?
Working within your own Budget may dictate that you can only secure a certain type of Act. There are acts that perform as a duo ( although I personally think a Band is at least 3 people) using backing tracks to supplement the other instrumentation. Most Bands require at least 3 Instruments to create a reasonable sound. Guitar and or Keyboard, Bass Guitar and Drums. A duo can of course only provide at least 2 of these instruments. However, if you are comfortable with this option then you may secure a great duo at a very affordable price.
The Larger the number of Musicians in a Band the more you would expect to pay. If you book a Wedding Band that is local to your Wedding Venue then you might also expect to pay less than a band that has to travel 2-4 hours to your venue. Simply put, expect to pay more for a five piece than a four piece etc. If the wedding Venue is in Killarney and band are travelling form Donegal expect to pay more than if they are based in Kenmare. This is basic and fairly simple economics. These are things that you might also consider when searching for your Wedding Entertainment.
Oscar Wilde famously said.
“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”
Should Price be the only deciding factor when choosing Entertainment? Surely Your Wedding Day requires you to seek out the Best Entertainment you can afford. While I know it’s not likely that your Budget will stretch to Ed Sheeran as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can. At the Very least your Wedding Band should perform very reasonable covers of great acts. The Value of a great Wedding Band will be enjoyed long after the honeymoon hangover is worn off. The Price of the Band likely reflects the demand and quality of the Act. Great Bands are true professionals and have worked at their craft usually for very many years to reach the top of their profession.
What Should I Pay for my Band?
Prices can range from as little as €499 to €3,000 and beyond.
This will, of course, take in to account the highs and the lows of the market. The average price quoted seems a fair reflection of the cost charged. I would suggest that any Quality Wedding Band should be somewhere in this Ballpark price range between €1,800 and €2,500. This might seem like quite a hefty fee to pay for one night’s entertainment. But when you consider its divided between the Band and the costs that need to be paid for travel and expenses such as insurance and advertising.
Each musician has to travel to and from the venue perhaps for many hours each way at unsociable hours. Very often the day can be 12 hours long or more especially if the Band perform at the ceremony through to the Reception. Its amazing the number of Brides who I have spoken to at 4 am who found it incredulous that I was about to set off on a 3-4 hour drive home following a long days entertainment.
