Thank you so much Mark and the lads for an amazingly brilliant wedding night’s entertainment at the Riverside Park Hotel on the 28th Oct. You guys were fantastic the dance floor was full all night from start to finish. Your music entertained everyone from young to old. We would highly recommend you as you are the most entertaining wedding band we have ever seen and all our guests are still raving about you.

Denise & Niall 28th Oct

------------------------------------

Big Thank You for being the best wedding band ever and we have been to a few. Right from the word go to the very end of the evening the dance floor was hopping and we saw friends out that have never threaded the boards before ... now that is saying something. We couldn't compliment your performance enough. We also appreciated your good humour and attention given to the few children that were eagerly awaiting the first dance, something they will never forget, we have at least one page boy that now wants to be a drummer.

With love, Barry & Marijke 4th Nov Ballymascanlon House Hotel

The Great Escape played at our wedding in Druids Glen in June and were absolutely top class! We saw about 5 or 6 bands before we booked, but The Great Escape were by far the best. They kept the dance floor so full all night that there was literally not enough room at some stages for all of our guests! Everyone commented on how great they were and everyone really enjoyed their set. We can't recommend them highly enough! If they guys are available on your wedding date just book them quick, before someone else does!

To anyone thinking of hiring the Great Escape, they are amazing, used to go watch them when they were doing the pub circuit, they played my 21st, my two sisters and my brothers weddings and if you want a band to play music to get you dancing and with personalities to keep you entertained between songs, then The Great Escape are the band you want!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to the best band in the world. You really were fantastic from the build up to the night itself. These guys as well as being truly professional are also the nicest guys, nothing is a problem, they go all out for you. The floor was packed all night and we didn't want the night to end. You made our reception the best (not just saying that because it was our wedding, everyone there said it...woohoo)from the first dance right through to your DJ set, the night was fantastic. The boys learned our wedding song for us and did it better than the original. We're looking forward to seeing the boys play again soon at a friends wedding, you'll recognise us by our dodgy dance moves. Thanks Mark, Fran, Eric & Paul. See you all soon. Ps Cheers Paul for the Vegas chat, it didn't disappoint. From your biggest fans,

Clive & Linda Parsons

Hi to all,..Just a quick message getting back some 10 yrs later. Sinead & I will ever be so greatfull that you guys completed the final part of our wedding jigsaw. August 16th 2003 The Westcourt hotel the dance floor was always full no matter what tune or set you's performed. Prior to our big day it was funny as we were at Eamonn Porter's wedding 9th August in Kinnity Castle and Prior to that Jason Quinlan's 2nd August in Kildare so we did get to know the band and the wedding setup. It was a great day & evening for all in which we where truly thankfull. Continued success to what we can only describe as Irelands leading wedding band.

Thanks, Gareth & Sinead Stamullen Co. Meath

--------------------------

Hi Mark,

 

I just want to thank you and the rest of the band for your amazing show on Wednesday - you guys are one of the first things people say they loved about the wedding! We couldn't have asked for a better set list or a nicer bunch of guys on the night! Thank you so much for taking the time to learn our first song for us - it went down a storm with everyone. Your DJ set list was also spot on.We'll be strongly recommending you to anyone we know getting married.Again, thank you so much for making the reception the success it was!

 

Peter and Jenny, Summerhill House Hotel

All our guests commented on how great the band was and the dancefloor was packed right up until the end of the night. We would defintely recommend you to any couple who are getting married. Thanks again for a great day! We had a fantastic time!!

Lisa & Mark

Michael Grace

------------------------

Hi Mark and the gang,  We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you all for all the hard work and effort you put in to our wedding reception on 19th June 2010 at Tulfarris. It was perfect! All our guests have said it was the best wedding they had been to and we have had nothing but compliments about you. We couldn\'t highly recommend you enough to anyone who is thinking about booking you. To anyone reading this who is wondering what made the great escape so fantastic, here's why; Mark was always happy to answer any questions we had, and always got back to us really quickly - They are the nicest guys to work with - The dance floor was full all night long and they read what the crowd wanted song after song -They not only learnt our first dance song, but also another really random song I wanted to dance with my dad to. I had thought that they would just play a cd of it so it was a beautiful surprize when they played it live -They catered for the really mixed audience we had, waltz to pop, rock to country - They were professional on the day. Arrived early, set up quickly, played for ages! Book them now!!!

Steven and Tara

Hi lads, just to say a big big thank you to each of you for playing at our wedding on aug 29th in cabra castle. As usual it was 100% from start to finish. There was nothing but praise for you after the wedding from young and old guests. The vast array of songs was unbelievable and the sound was spot on. Being a dj myself its sometimes hard to get the volume right, but it was perfect on the night. Everyone could talk to each other and still hear the music. Thats important for the older guests and not one of them complained - result. I dont think there was one person that didnt dance at some stage. That is saying something. Hope to see you all again soon. Thanks again.

Shane & Bridget

All generations danced the night away... Fantastic!!! Thank you

The Great Escape played at our wedding in June and we would highly recommend them. They were a pleasure to deal with - Eric and Mak were always very helpful and professional. They learned our first dance especially and played it superbly. They played floor fillers all night and catered for all ages. Thanks to the Great Escape for the big contribution they made to our night.

Thanks guys for accomodating the Johnny Cash set!! It was great and we have a fantastic video to remind us of it.

Well what can I say but Wow ! We got married on 18th June and our guests are still talking about how wonderful the band was. What a superb bunch of guys, from the very first contact they were all v friendly, accommodating and professional. The fact that you took the time to learn our first dance song and played it even better than we could have hoped seriously impressed us and our guests (David Gray - Be Mine) and meant so much to us. The dance floor was never empty and the mix of music was great. Possibly the best live band ever, if you book them you are definitely onto a winner and already your wedding reception will be fab. Thanks again, you helped to make our day special.

We just got married on the 1st of July 08 having heard great things about the great escape we decided to have a look at the lads in action. After hearing them sing two songs we knew we could not have any other band. From the first conversation I had with Fran I was so happy and completly sure that these guys were special. Before we knew it the day had arrived and the lads were setting up it took them about 30mins to set up and you would not even of know they were in the room. The guys were great help to us picking our first song and you might as well have been Van Morison playing it. These guys are one of the best live bands we have ever seen and have to be the best wedding band in the country, their music selection was perfect and they were ultra professional. All the talk over breakfast was about how good the band was. We could write all day about how really superb these guys are, not only are they great musicians but they are really nice people to deal with , even the dj they supplied was excellant. Both myself and my wife highly recommend the great escape even the manager of the hotel said they were the best band that had ever played there. Please contact me if you need any further info on these guys anytime on 087 9206942. Thanks again lads.

Thank you "Great Escape" for doing such a fantastic job at our wedding June 29th in the Nuremore. I can't recommend you highly enough. We still have guests asking us two months later who the band were. The floor was full all night. There was something for everyone.
