“The Shenanigans provided the entertainment for my dad’s 88th birthday party. I can’t recommend them highly enough… absolutely fantastic. They made the room come alive created a great atmosphere … played and sang lots of traditional Irish folk songs but also engaged the audience with stories and background to some of the songs. Definitely would book them again.”

“Wow. These guys were absolutely amazing and we will be having them back very soon.
I had asked them to play some Irish music at my uncles wake. We had Irish family over who would tell you how it is and they had an amazing time and we’re raving about these two lovely guys who were very professional and polite to our requests.
I was so surprised in how many songs they new and they kept them coming.
Thank you so much guys you were the best part of our day.”

Alan provides a reliable and professional service which I without reservation recommend to anyone.
On behalf of my family I would like to thank Alan for a fantastic evening.”

“We are so glad we booked Shenanigans for the gathering after my father’s funeral. My father loved music, and played folk fiddle, so to have live music and fiddle playing really brought warmth and life to the party. The duo were very professional, arrived early to set up, and were ready to play as people arrived. By the end of the party, people were tapping their feet, singing along , with even some spontaneous dancing . Shanigans were happy to accomommadate requests and covered a good range of songs. Thank you again for helping make this event special”

Alan and Steve provided a professional and friendly service.
The music was wonderful, fantastic fiddle playing from Steve and a strong vocal from Alan.
