“I just wanted to say a huge thank you. You were the best and we had so many comments about how fantastic you were! We knew you would be, after 6 weddings last summer you guys were the standout vendor and we planned our wedding date around your availability knowing you would set the perfect tone for the day, which you absolutely did!”
“We had Hugh and Declan play at our wedding in mid December 2019. I can honestly say that they were one of the main contributing factors to what made our wedding such a success. These guys managed to entice nearly all of our 150 guests to the dance floor and keep them there all night which was nothing short of a miracle.
We saw them play at another wedding and asked to reserve them there on the spot. Their amazing versatility means that they can entertain for the entire duration of the wedding and we never had to even think about organising any other music. As an added bonus they are some of the nicest guys you’ll meet.
You will not regret booking these guys for your wedding.”
“We presented the Foley Brothers with a challenge. An eclectic group of guests, ranging in ages, musical tastes, personalities and to make things difficult, cultural differences. The Foley Brothers rose to this challenge and surpassed all of our expectations.”
“Their set following the ceremony was elegant and well thought-out, managing to strike a balance between grace and subtlety and down-right awesome.”
“They produced an enchanting “aether” of music that reached out and connected the soul of each guest and made everyone feel that warm fuzzy feeling: love.”
“And then came the dance floor. Set under the stars amongst an enclave of trees, on a checker-board floor, the Foley Brothers entertained a very complex crows. Their academic musical knowledge allowed them to juxtapose Aussie pub rock classics with traditional Sri Landan Baila dance tunes; so what followed was a sprawling multicultural mess of limbs on the dance floor that refused to dissipate.”
“It was the best damn day. We and all our guests had so much fun and everyone still raves about how flipping awesome all of the details were, especially you guys.
You have given us the memories that are so incredible for the rest of our days.”
“The music they played gave our ceremony the exact feel we wanted for the day. Relaxed, uplifting and magical.
During the reception we asked for music that people of any age would want to get up and dance to. And they played exactly that. Myself, my husband and our guests had so much fun dancing that we didn’t want to leave, and we have the Foley artists to thank for that.
They listened to what we asked for and delivered exactly what we wanted. They are so professional and dedicated to providing exactly what you want for your day. I would happily recommend them to any family or friends needing a band or dj (or both) to set the tone for their event.”
“We could not have been happier with choosing The Foley Artists for our wedding day. The boys were relaxed but professional and were accommodating to all our requirements. The whole process from our initial enquiry and first meeting with Russell and the boys, to the ongoing communication in the lead up to the wedding was seamless.
We opted to have the boys for the whole day and night, starting off with their acoustic duo and finishing with an epic DJ set. Countless guests commented on the boy’s talent, saying it was the best music they’ve enjoyed at a wedding. We can’t recommend them highly enough for any function!”
“The Foley Artists and their team are amazing to work with. Planning our wedding from interstate threw up a few challenges, and choosing the musical entertainment was certainly one of those. Once we had contacted the band, any nerves were quickly calmed by Russell’s prompt and informative communications. When the big day came around, Hugh and Declan absolutely nailed it. Their acoustic set during dinner thoroughly impressed our guests (and us!) and their song choices for the DJ set were spot on. We had such an incredible time and The Foley Artists were a huge part of that.
Thanks again guys!”
“We had our wedding an hour out of Hobart and the boys were amazing! They were at the venue and set up by 11 – the staff at the venue said how amazing they were as well.
The music played was perfect, at our request we let them play what they wanted and we couldn’t find fault. Our guests loved the relaxed style and appreciated that Declan and Hugh were so personable.
The music, vibe and attitude really was more than we could have asked for and definitely felt like they were part of our friends within minutes. I would strongly recommend if you want local talent, that can give you the ultimate chill, fun but also pop music acoustic vibe that you look no further than the Foley Artists.”
“Being from Queensland we flew down to Tassie a year before the wedding to book vendors. We met with Russell and discussed what we wanted for our band and right from the beginning he was so easy to talk to and later to correspond with….kindly answering numerous emails and messages. My husband is a musician so music was always going to be a very important part of our day.
The Foley artists were outstanding! Every one of our guests commented on how good they were. For my processional I wanted a classical piece, which the band learnt and then performed with their own unique style and it was perfect! My husband and MC wanted to perform a unique reception entrance song with the band and they were very accommodating, organising a rehearsal and learning the song. It was the best entrance I have ever seen!
The trio swapped to DJ mode and the dancing started and did not stop until the boys packed up. I don’t think I got off the dance floor all night.
Thank you so much to the Foley Artists for making our special day so memorable and so much fun! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band for their wedding, I cannot praise them enough.”
“Declan made the dance floor at our wedding the place to be… all night long!
From the moment we walked in, the vibes were excellent and he basically timed everything for us on the day, with the help of our celebrant – who needs an MC?!
The tunes were killer, the dance floor started early and went well into the night! We had so many comments about the music and how epic the dance floor was, and reflections on how much fun everyone had, in the days following.
Atmosphere is so important and Declan absolutely nailed it!
Thanks again guys!”
“We had the Foley Artists at our wedding, and I lost count at the reception and even in the weeks that followed just how many guests raved about how awesome they were. Eg ‘They were playing Dylan as we got off the boat. Now they are the DJ’s’.
I can not recommend them more highly. I would hire them again in a heart beat. So easy to work with, including a lot of uncertainty with COVID. Plus, how cool do they look?!
Thanks for helping to make our day so much fun team Foley’s.”
