Wedding Entertainment Details
(Read the full review here: https://www.weddingsonline.ie/reviews/the-mixtape)
Who We Are:
The Mixtape are a group of full time professional musicians. We’ve enjoyed playing shows all over the country, and regularly travel abroad to play at weddings and events. To date we’ve played shows in Ireland, the UK, France, Italy, Portugal, Canada and Norway.
What We Do:
The Mixtape approach every wedding we play with the same focus of creating an entertaining and interactive high energy show.
It’s important to us that all of your guests are included on the dance floor, and every set list is tailored to maximise the party atmosphere.
We’re here to work with your plans for the evening’s entertainment. We can also liaise directly with your venue or wedding co-ordinator to ensure everything runs smoothly on the big night.
It’s your night. Your favourite music. We made you a Mixtape!
The Mixtape DJ:
We also offer a two hour DJ set after the band performance. This is a popular option as it reduces change-over time and maintains the flow of the evening between band performance and DJ.
Having performed for (and partied with!) your guests for two hours during the live band show, we get a good idea of what music styles will work best to maximise the party atmosphere during the DJ set.
We play a “party music through the ages” DJ set, with the rock n’ roll classics of the 50’s, through the swinging 60’s, disco 70’s, electro 80’s, nostalgia 90’s, party 00’s along with modern chart hits. As with our live band performance, our focus is on a full dance floor and an excellent celebration party!
While we made our name over many years as a three piece band, made up of Drums, Bass and Guitar & Vocals, we are delighted to offer the option of adding a brass section!
The brass section includes a saxophone and trumpet player, and adds an exciting dynamic to The Mixtape show, including our versions of classics from Elvis to Beyonce!

Supplying the highest standard of wedding entertainment is extremely important to us. Every single show we play is part of one of the most important days in a couple’s lives. We take this responsibility very seriously.
With this in mind we allow for every possible contingency (illness, injury, unavailability) to ensure that we provide couples with the highest standard of musicians at every show.
All of our band members play together regularly. We’re dedicated to working with the very best musicians, and all of our members have attained the high level of skill and experience we demand. Many of our members also play in original bands who tour the UK, Europe, USA and beyond.
Our shows tend to be booked over twelve months in advance, and The Mixtape play weddings and private parties every weekend. While it’s not possible to guarantee specific individual members, we guarantee a consistent high standard for every member of the group, and for each and every show we play.
We work hard to ensure that our musicians are trained to the point where each show is absolutely consistent in terms of experience, delivery and quality. Your wedding day (and our reputation!) are too important to us to have it any other way.
We’ve been delighted with the reaction we’ve experienced performing at wedding celebrations.
