Your Questions Answered
How long does the band play for?
The band plays for two and a half hours. The band will play for one hour in their grey suits, and following a short break, another hour and a half in their pink costumes. If you would like to change the ratio of both performances that’s no problem. Any combination can be organized in advance of the event date.
How long does the DJ play for?
The DJ will start immediately after the band is finished and will play till venue curfew for a maximum of two hours. PRO-TIP It’s always a really good idea when planning the evening’s entertainment to plan backwards from the venue curfew time.
Can I request songs for the band to play?
Yes you can as Tickled Pink can perform a great variety of music throughout the performance and we will discuss with you well in advance of your event the songs that best suit your special occasion.
Can I request songs for the DJ to play?
Yes of course. If you like you can prepare a list of your favorite songs for the DJ and he will include them in his set while keeping the momentum of the evening going. Guests are also welcome to request songs on the fly as the night progresses.
When does the band set up their equipment?
Our equipment is normally set up after the meal and speeches. We will set up our modern compact equipment discreetly in less than 40 minutes. If required we can do an early afternoon setup. (There may be an additional fee incurred depending on venue location).
Can I request that the band play our first dance song?
How do I book Tickled Pink?
Contact us and speak to Johnny to secure your date. A booking contract is required to confirm your booking. One month before your wedding, we will contact you again to discuss the final schedule for the day and any other last-minute requirements you may require.
What They Say
“Great music choices and a very engaging show that got the guests involved. They made the night what it was.
Anyone of the guests I spoke to were full of compliments regarding the band. What I liked the best was the fact that there was a ‘half time’ & in the second half, with the change of costumes came a change in tempo. It was certainly a night to remember. The hotel were asking about them. I would highly recommend the band for all the reasons above!”
(Mullingar Park Hotel, Dublin Rd, Marlinstown Bog, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath – October 2014)
“It was tremendous fun. We danced and laughed the whole night. A certain party atmosphere was injected into the room by the talented men in pink suits. The interaction with the crowd was brilliant, people enjoyed themselves and felt involved. I liked the music selection, the pink suits and how the band appeared to be really enjoying themselves. I recommend them to other couples who get married as they know how to get a party started.”
(Fallon & Byrne, 11-17 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2 – Valentines Day 2019)
“Most definitely would recommend and have done so. Great communication with Johnny in the lead up to the wedding. The band performed a song for our first dance which was not on their playlist. Went above and beyond to make our day special.
No hesitations at all after seeing Tickled Pink playing at a wedding fair and then at a showcase. Brilliant band.
I cannot thank the band enough for enhancing our wedding day. Brilliant band and great guys. Thank you so much!.“

“Fantastic band, just can’t fault anything. I would defiantly recommend these guys to all our friends and family. I had no hesitation in booking these guys as I had been to a wedding they played and loved them. All my guests were raving about them, the guys were so nice! Everyone was up dancing all night and the guitar solo on the table was the funniest thing ever! Great selection of songs. We had such a great day, thank you so much for being part of it, our guests just loved you. Wish we could do it all again.”

(Ballykistine Hotel, Ballykisteen, Co. Tipperary – April 2019)
“They really engaged with the crowd. Everyone felt they had good charisma and the lead singer had an awesome voice! Also the wireless instruments
allowed them to join the crowd! The price was a bit above our budget, but we were assured that they would deliver good entertainment. And they did!
I have recommended them to others already.“

But it paid off! The dance floor was packed all night with people dancing.
We liked the costume change and how they interacted with the crowd.
