Hi Owen

Orla and myself are now back into the land of the living and getting around to thanking people for a fantastic day.

I don't know what to say about Papa Zitas. We heard ye were good but ye honestly exceeded all that we thought. What a fantastic band. I'm not a dancer and I honestly couldn't get off the dance floor it was so entertaining. I couldn't believe the dance floor was full all night. All the guests are still raving about you all and couldn't get over the professionalism and standard of Instrument playing and singing and of course interacting on the dance floor. Top notch!!!

If you could pass on a huge thanks to the rest of the band that would be appreciated as well. 

You were also great to deal with and very understanding with our circumstances all the way through.

Thanks again Owen and best of luck in the future. Best band we've heard in a long long time.

Hi Owen,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone in The Papa Zitas for an absolutely amazing performance at our wedding. People always say a good band makes the day and The Papa Zitas definitely made our day! Everyone was raving about how good you were and rightly so! The Papa Zitas are without a doubt the best wedding band I've ever come across so we are very grateful that you could be part of our special day.

Thank you again for making our day so special - it was an incredible night! We wish you all every success and happiness in the future. 

We're already planning a trip down to Reardans to see you play again!

Thank you,

Shane and Leanne Doherty, Lyrath Estate, June 2022

Hi Owen,

Just a quick note to say thanks so much to you and the band for playing at our wedding on NYE. Ye were amazing, even better than we could have imagined. All 10 members of the band showed so much energy and enthusiasm!! ❤

We saw ye at other weddings and so we were delighted when ye were available for our date. It was great knowing from the beginning that we didn't need to worry about the music because we knew ye would do a fab job 😃 The dance floor was always busy and the range of songs meant all guests were catered for throughout the night 🥰

Also just to say thanks for being so professional and accommodating when it came to the last minute government restrictions being imposed...your flexibility with start/end times really put us at ease.

So many guests were asking about you after the wedding so we've been recommending you to everybody!

Thanks again,

Aoife and Michael O'Donnell, Fota Resort, December 2021

Hi Owen,

Just a line to say thank you for a job well done at our 50th anniversary held at the Green Isle Hotel on Saturday last. Everyone there were really impressed at the superb show, music, singing, and absolute joy you helped to create on the night. 

You provided a lovely personal touch, which was great. Your band, both boys and girls were lovely, tuned in, and are truly unique and very talented, even people that did not dance really enjoyed the show. (We will definitely book you for our 75th anniversary) 

Well done and thank you,

Hugh and Myra Feighery.

Just a quick message to thank you and your band for an amazing performance at our wedding.I still get goosebumps when I think of the lads playing down to the crowd from the balcony!!! The amount of positive comments we have received to date have mostly centred on how cool and amazing the band were on the night. I want to get married again just so.i can book you lads again.

Best of luck and thanks a million for a great night.

Hi Owen,
The band were excellent and the DJ also. Both kept the dance floor full for the night and I couldn't ask for more!!!

Thank you so much, it was a pleasure dealing with you and I hope to have the privilege of seeing both again in the near future!

Hi Owen,

Sorry about the delayed response, Michael and I are only back in Australia after our honeymoon. 

Thank you so much to you and your band for the night. Everybody is saying how great you all were and most people had never seen a band like the Papa Zitas before.  

Michael and I enjoyed every minute. Michael has never danced in his life before so it was great as the music got him up dancing. 

The DJ was great too he had everyone up dancing till he finished. 

Once again thank you so much everyone had a ball.

Helen and Michael, March 2018

Hi Owen and all, 

Sorry for the delay!!! We absolutely loved ye and all of the guests didnt stop raving about ye for days afterwards. My husband is english and his crowd were playing the songs ye played on their karaoke bus back to Dublin airport :) Ye really made our day so so special. Thanks a million again!!!! 

Kind regards

Ye were absolutely amazing and all our guests couldn't believe how fabulous ye were!
From speaking to our guests  all said they have never seen a band like ye before!

Thank you so much for making our night so special, we really appreciate everything you did for us!

Gary and Amy, May 2017 

Dear Owen and Team, 
We just wanted to extend a quick thank you for the wonderful night of entertainment you provided for our wedding. Having seen you perform before we knew you'd be fantastic but you were absolutely terrific. I have to say I have never come across a more professional, well put together outfit.. you were excellent! The whole family is now obsessed with Bom Bom Bom!

Michelle and Danny March 2017

Hi Owen,

Just a quick note to say thanks again for a amazing performance again the other night. Ye were brilliant and were the talk of the place the next day.

No doubt we will see Ye playing somewhere again in the not too distant future.

Thanks a mill!

Dave and Gemma, April 2017

We booked the Papa Zitas as our Wedding Band before we had firmly decided on a venue! Having heard the band play previously we knew that when we got married we would only be doing so on a date that they were available!! They were as brilliant as we knew they would be and more. Our dance floor was full from the moment the band started and stayed that way until their last song and encore (by popular demand). Our crowd ranged in age from 8 to 80 and we heard nothing but praise for the band from all our guests. We know of no other wedding band (and we've seen lots) who interact with a crowd and keep the energy flowing so well! We can't recommend them highly enough!
