Here are some of the amazing testimonials that some couples have written . It totally blows me away when a couple takes the time to write a lovely review after their wedding.

"Dave DJ'D for my wedding this year in February. I was in 2 minds of having a dj and a band, or just a dj for the entire night.In the end, I went with just a dj. I was apprehensive about my decision to not have a band, and I was worrying,as every brides does, would the crowd like it? Would people be up dancing? and would the atmosphere be the same without a band?.. well I had nothing to worry about. From the first song everyone was up dancing. The atmosphere was everything I could have wanted, there was no need for a band. The music was to everyones taste. He really made mine, my husbands and my guests nights. The next morning, at breakfast, everyone commented on how good he was and some asked for his number for their future wedding. I was delighted to pass it on. I couldn't recommend Dave enough. Thank you so so much. "

We had Dave play at our wedding reception recently and I cannot recommend him highly enough. From the start he was great- we exchanged emails discussing the venue/our needs/price etc and then he called over to meet with us a few weeks before the wedding. Dave really set our minds at ease form the minute we started communicating with him- he was very flexible and open to everything. The night of the wedding Dave was very professional and the music was exactly as we had discussed, it was really everything we had imagined and more! All the guests were commenting on the good music and my feet were in bits for the next two days from all the dancing- a good complaint!!!! Huge thank you to Dave for making our night even more special!

"Dave was an absolute pleasure to deal with while I was organising my wedding. He always responded to my queries & has a great understanding of specific wedding requirements. He brought a fab party atmosphere to the wedding & seemed to know what direction to take the music during the night, from more quirky wedding songs to some great hiphop, disco & house! Would recommend without hesitation."

"We were privileged to have Dave share and add to our special day, he knew intuitively what our needs were and truly went the extra mile to make it personal and unforgettable topping an already memorable and magical day. I would highly recommend Dave for any couple looking to add magic and wonder to their unforgettable day. Thank you Dave, you certainly made our day flawless and laid down the perfect soundtrack for our ballet of emotion on our dream day."

"Dave DJed at my wedding last year and he was brilliant. Couldn't recommend him highly enough. He met us before to run through everything so he had all of our favourite tracks and he was really interested in finding out what music was important to us. He had the dance floor rocking all evening with great funky tunes and he was so lovely to deal with. He played an hour after he was supposed to because everyone was dancing away and everyone loved it!!!"

"We found Steely Dave after a recommendation from a friend. Couldn't have been happier with his set. He really listened to what we wanted and catered to our very specific musical tastes! His chilled personality and cheery demeanour helped create a great atmosphere for our afters. He got everyone up dancing! Book this guy!"

"I would like to say a big thank-you to Dave who was the DJ for our wedding in Luttrellstown Castle in June 18.


I was very picky in this area to say the least, as it was really important to me to avoid the traditional wedding DJ music.

After I contacted Dave, he came to meet me and I was reassured that he understood the type of music I wanted played.

He was also more than happy to play any specific songs I had selected.

We had organised a separate band before the DJ, and Dave set up quietly and was ready to go the moment the band finished.

An absolute pleasure to deal with from the beginning and on the day. I would highly recommend Dave, especially if you would like to avoid the usual DJ wedding set."

“We had the pleasure of having Steely Dave perform at our wedding in Faithlegg House Hotel, Waterford in April 2016.


We booked him after hearing recommendations from friends and we weren’t disappointed. Dave was a pleasure to deal with and are so professional in what he does.

His performance on the night was absolutely brilliant; he really got the crowd going from the very start and he had the dancefloor full for the whole night with both young and old.

This included OAPs dancing to Blondie, much to our surprise and amusement!!! All of our guests were raving about the music and the only complaints were the aches and pains and sore feet the following day from all the dancing. We couldn’t have asked for more and would highly recommend Steely Dave! Thanks again”

“Hi Dave!


Just wanted to thank you so much for playing at our wedding on Saturday! We’ve gotten so many compliments on the music and everyone had so much fun dancing the night away! The set was so much fun and the song choices were deadly! We especially loved the 50's rock at the end as you probably could tell!!! Would not hesitate to recommend Steely Dave to any of our friends. Thanks again. Emma & Ross”

“Steely Dave was AMAZING!!


From the minute I emailed enquiring Dave was so helpful, nothing was ever a hassle. We are so happy we found him, they had everyone on the dancefloor all night, played all the music we love and suitable for all age groups! All our guests are asking us who our DJ was that they were the best DJ they ever heard at a wedding!!! We hope we’ll get to see you again and dance the night away!! Thanks a million !!!”

What can we say, Steely Dave was the second best choice we made for our wedding (riiiight behind choosing to get married!).

From the initial chats, back & forth over the playlists to the last song played out at our reception, we absolutely cannot fault you! From your passion for music, what you do, professionalism and everything else inbetween, we simply couldn’t have been happier with what Steely Dave delivered!


 I personally loved that we were straight on the same page when it came to our playlist. Everything you suggested, and played on the night went down perfectly both with us and our guests. The floor was crammed full all night! We certainly didn’t want to stop dancing and was the exact party we had hoped for. Friends and family were coming up to us both all night singing your praises and it was definitely deserved. Thank you  a million times over for making our night exactly what we ever hoped it would be, and more. Music is a huge part of my life, and what you played, how professionally you played it, and also your friendly personality meant we simply couldn’t have been happier. Loved every bit, thank you again Dave!

We want more excuses to book you again as soon as possible!

We can’t recommend Dave enough. He played all the songs we wanted without any issue. He created an amazing atmosphere at our wedding. He’s was also very professional and responsive to emails and calls. We would recommend him to any couple for their upcoming wedding or party.

Want to thank Dave so much for bringing the PARTAY. 

We loved having him at our special day and loved the party. My neck took nearly a week to recover. People are still talking about how good the music was, and there were people up dancing who I never would have expected. Thanks so much for making it o brilliant!

Everyone was dancing the whole night and there was no cheesy music at all. Dave feels the crowd and knows when to play what. Even when Dave added in songs we didn't request, they completely worked and everyone had an incredible time.

We whole heartidly recommend Dave not only for his musical capabilities, but because he is a professional, trustworthy, and just an all around great guy!

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say a massive thank you for all of your efforts at our wedding on Saturday! I will send you a proper testimonial when we are back from our honeymoon, however just thought I should send you a quick note as I don’t think I got a proper chance to say goodbye to you on Saturday.Thank you so much for helping to make Saturday the happiest day of our lives. From my point of view it went so much better than I ever could have imagined and I will treasure those memories forever. Thank you for helping to create a wonderfully relaxed and feel good atmosphere which is exactly what we wanted. Throughout the day several of our guests commented to me that they were having a brilliant day. Also thank you for your music as it helped to keep the dance floor full at all times which I know is exactly what Hayley wanted. Thank you for helping to put me at ease at various points throughout the day!

I really hope you had a great day too. Thank you so much again!

Kind regards

Dear Dave,

I Just wanted to drop you a short note to thank you for the wonderful job you did at my daughter Jenny and my new son in law Sams wedding on Saturday 14th September.

You were so helpful and managed to keep every thing running like clockwork.  The music was fantastic and everybody said it was the best wedding that they have ever been to and how brilliant you are.

You definitely deserve your top awards and if you ever need a recommendation do not hesitate to ask.

Once again many thanks.

Morning Dave,


We both don’t know how to thank you for how amazing you made our special day. I have had so many compliments about you and the music you played. I don’t know how you did it, but the mix of Disco, Funk, party classics and modern rocked and everyone was commenting on the fact that the dance floor was full non-stop for hours on end!
You deserve all the good publicity and word of mouth you can get! Please feel free to add me to any list of references you have and I’d be happy to sing your praises to any potential new clients.
You really are a star and our day couldn’t have been any better! Thanks so much and the video clip is so great.
Happy weekend and hope to party with you soon! Perhaps we can crash the next event you’ll be spinning at?

                                                                                                                                     Lisa & Ross - Cliff Townhouse, August 2018


Dear Dave,


We just want to say thank you very much for being our DJ at our wedding! You really made it all happen exactly the way we wanted and we really appreciate your organisation and willingness to be flexible! It was like having a good friend DJing on our big day!

Will definitely recommend to anyone!

Thanks again!

Hi Dave,

We will pop over to you at some point (whilst walking the dog!) to give a personal thank you, but wanted you to know we had such a great time with you on Friday. All the guest having been raving about you and I hope you got the impression we were all having a great time.
It goes without saying that the music can make of break a wedding and if the number of comments and high fives given to you that evening didn’t already show how impressed my guest were, then you need to know you were fantastic!!!!
So glad we picked you!
Best wishes to a lovely guy.

Hi Dave,

We just wanted to write and say a big ‘THANK YOU’ for being our Wedding DJ. We had an amazing day and the music at the end was just the icing on the cake of our big day! All of our friends and family had a great time and had lots of great things to say about the evening and the disco!

Hi Dave,

Hope you are well?

Apologies for not getting in touch sooner. We arrived back from our honeymoon in Thailand today so just working through all the admin post wedding!

Anyway, I wanted to say a big big thank you for everything that you have done for us. We had such an amazing day and that was mainly down to your cool, calm and supportive nature.

Thank you for helping the girls set up in the morning too – I heard you were a great help!

Many thanks again,
