 Hello Will, Elizabeth _ rest of lads,
 
Just a quick mail to say thank you so much for making our recent wedding day so perfect. Everybody had a ball all thanks to ye. We are back from our honeymoon, had a great time. So hard to settle back to everything, 2 weeks done at work and can't get into it at all. Barbados was brilliant, we should all move there....so chilled out! Ask for anything and it could be 3  days before you get it.
We just want to thank you all for doing such a great job at the wedding, everything far exceeded our expectations. The church music was beautiful and you made such a fantastic job of our favourite song "Bright Blue Rose". Everyone commented about the beautiful singing in the church.
We missed alot of the drinks reception but everyone said how lovely the music was and it was great to be able to chat with music in the background.

As for ye as a band, no other band comes close!! Ye are absolutely true professionals who made the night such a laugh. The fun and the craic was brilliant. Whoever thought grown men and women and especially those who hadn't touched a drink would believe they were real life rock stars....it was brilliant, great fun. The pictures are fantastic!! We so wish we had asked our videographer to stay on for the band and disco as we would love to relive it again. We foolishly thought people would be reluctant to dance if the video was there, no chance of that happening with ye playing! This was our only regret. Will, you really excelled as a dj, the music was fantastic and the dance floor was full all night.....we couldn't have asked for more.
Just one more thing, James (Manager of Sligo Park Hotel) wanted us to pass on to ye how impressed he was with your whole set up. He couldn't get over how professional ye were as a band.
Thanks so much to you all, we had a really unforgettable day. 
Best wishes Will to you and Elizabeth for the new arrival, we both wish you all the best. Hope to see ye at a wedding soon.
Regards,
Anna _ Paraic

Dear Will,

Thanks to you and Bumblebee Honey for providing the entertainment at our after wedding BBQ party.  Thanks for answering any queries in advance to our party.  Everything from the light music played during our reception, the live band afterwards right up the the DJ service was excellent!!  Our guests have praised your good work and the great job you did at keeping everyone out on the dance floor all night!  Great fun looking back at the DVD.  It was your birthday Will also on the day of our wedding party and I went without saying it on the night... apologies, so a belated "Happy Birthday"

Wishing ye all the very best in the future.  We will be recommending ye!

Hi Will,

We want to say thanks again for helping make our big day so great, both in the church and hotel.  Pass on our thanks to the rest of the lads.

Hey Will _ Liz

Hope all is well with you. I just wanted to email you to thank you so much for the great entertainment that you provided us with on our wedding day.  Throughout the whole day, the church, reception and DJ we were delighted with your great service.  You had great ability to get everyone included in the day, both young and old.  My hubby and his friends had a chance to relive their youth at the disco ( can't wait to show the grandkids!!!) .  You were always helpful and friendly to deal with and this was a big help when I was up to my eyes with other wedding stuff.  Finally, thank you for the great job you did on Marie's Wedding ( my song leaving the church).  It got everyone clapping and it set them up for a great day.  I noticed that you have added it to your church song list on your website.  Thanks for your help in giving us a day we'll never forget!

Found Bumblebee Honey to be fantastic, they played at our wedding Aug 09, they kept everyone on the dance floor and party games were great fun everyone enjoyed the music and the craic. We got them to do the church, band and DJ.  Could not recommend them enough. Even my mother-in-law said they were really good ( and she can be hard to please ). Reasonable rates and a great service. 2 guests took their contact details.

Bumblebee Honey:

We want to say a BIG thank you for providing the music ( and DJ ) at our wedding last September. You kept in touch with us all the time leading up to the wedding about what songs we wanted and didn't want and we found you professional and helpful at all times.  You really made our night with the music and people are still saying how great it was. People that we didn't think would get up on the dance floor! Thank you so much and we will be definitely be recommending you to anyone who is looking for a band.

Conor _ Annemarie Winkle 19th of September Kilashee House Hotel 2008

 

Hi Will, Elizabeth and guys

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the great day's entertainment that you put on for us. We all really enjoyed the music - my mother hasn't danced so much since 1965! Our feet were in bits after it.  We're really getting the mick taken out of us re the dance skits, but that was great craic.  I have some great photos of us on the the dancefloor, including a very funny one of me in the dress with a guitar , headbanging - you can dress her up but you can't bring her out and all that :-)  Anyways, thanks again, I'll recommend you to anyone who asks. 

 All the best Angela and Chris Hill Galway 20th June 09

Hi Will, Elizabeth and band
 
I just want to thank you all most sincerely for providing the wedding music at our Wedding in the Sligo Park Hotel on 29th November 2008.  From once we booked bumblebeehoney we never encountered any problems whatsoever.  I never heard so many people commenting on how good the band were, how energetic and how much fun you guys brought to the nights entertainment.  My brother ended up pulling his hamstring muscle from all the dancing he did that night - which to this day is a source of great fun.
 
All i want to say to you all is thank you so much for making our special day even more special - 4 months on people are still laughing at the plastic guitars and the sun glasses and all the props you brought.  You truly are professional but at the same time the element of fun you bring ensures bride _ groom have no worries on the music side of things.
 
Thanks so much.

Now finally congrats on your own wedding im sure you both had a wonderful day.
 
Thanks again

We would love to share our experience of having Bumble Bee Honey as part of our day. Coming over to Ireland from the UK to organise a wedding was very daunting for us, especially as we had no friends or family in Ireland to advise or even provide an indication of where to start with it all. But that was our dream wedding so that is what we did!
 
The band is a huge part of the entertainment as you can all appreciate and it was something that we were very anxious about. After I initially found Bumble Bee Honey through the internet and even after reading all the extremely positive feedback from other people we still were not convinced. So off to Ireland we went to meet them and there we met Elizabeth.  I have to say I have never come across such an all round band. Having quite a lot of experience in using bands in the UK for events and functions, this band is superb. You not only get the quality and variety that is so much needed at a wedding but the professionalism, humour and willingness to accommodate is outstanding. They certainly made our day truly memorable and went the extra mile to ensure ALL our guests did, from the very young children to our grandparents. I would have no hesitation in recommending them and if they can entertain 170 monkey hangers they can do it for you.  
 
Thanks again

We just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to say thanks for the great performance and we had a great time and all our guests were complimenting the band.

Hi Guys,
 
I have meant to send this email several times. Just wanted to thank you for a great day. Everyone had a brilliant day and that was alot to do with the entertainment. Everyone loved the music and the floor was never empty which is very unusual for a wedding. I have been at quiet a few this year and never seen the floor as full.
 
You all where very helpful and friendly especially Will.
 
Thanks for making our day brilliant!

Here is our testimonial:

We booked Bumblebee Honey for our wedding on September 26th 2008. Right the way to the run up to the wedding the lads made themselves easily accessable and we had no issues with being able to contact them. They took our preferred songs on board ie/ July by Mundy and we were delighted that they were able to perform it and furthermore even more delighted that this song has now become part of their play list and seems to be going down a treat at subsequent weddings.

The guys were absolutley fantastic. Their range of music made sure that everyone of all ages was more than well catered for. They performed with great energy and added a real entertainment value to the day. Will was able to unplug his guitar and roam through the crowd, while playing at the same time. It was a very interactive performance.  We also had a dance group called Celtic Rhythm come dance for us and Will facilitated them with leads and amps for them to perform without any hesitation.
To sum it up, the guys were one of the main factors that made the day so memorable. We only wish we could get married every week and have them play. People were asking us about them and complimenting the music for weeks after, which is testiment to them. Never mind Alexandra Burke or Leona Lewis.........these guys have the real X Faxtor.

All the best for the future lads and we hope our paths will cross again and Thanks for everything that made our day so special.

Warmest Regards

John _ Jacinta Woods - Sept 26th 2008

 

Hi Will,

Just dropping an email to say thank you so much for making our wedding day complete and you were fantastic throughout. The church music was excellent and many people commented on your vocals. The band was brilliant and you had everybody dancing all night long, as you probably saw. Very up to date music and very like the bands you played. As was the DJ. Everybody was going on about how good you were so thanks again and I will be sure to recommend you to others, as I am sure everybody else will.

Take care.

"BumbleBee  Honey were the musical entertainment all day for our wedding ... from the guitarists who played in the church in the morning to the dj in the early hours of the following morning!  At all times Elizabeth _ Will were a pleasure to deal with, making us feel like we were their only clients, and performing exactly how and what we wanted.  The songs played in the church were so moving. The cocktail drinks reception was accompanied by some great live lounge music. The 4 piece band played all the best songs to get our guests on the dancefloor all night, and Will was an excellent dj, keeping the entire party going til we had no more energy!  We have already recommended Bumblebee Honey to our friends ... you will too!"

"While organising our wedding in Ireland from Sydney, Australia, we discovered BumbleBee Honey online and from the moment I contacted them with our initial enquiry to our wedding day they could not have been more accommodating, helpful and professional.  They were a one stop shop for all our musical needs, from the Church, onto the welcome reception, onto our wedding reception and finally as our DJ for later in the night.  They consulted with us on our song choices for the Church helping us through what was a difficult task and provided us with everything we could of wanted for the day plus more (including some great little treats for our younger guests on the dance floor).  They took all the hassle out of trying to find different musicians for different parts of the day as they have an amazing diverse range of musical talent and seamlessly adapted from Church music, to band music, to the DJ.  The dance floor was full all night long and all our guests complemented the music.   We could not have been happier and we would recommend BumbleBee Honey to anyone again and again."

"BumbleBee Honey were fantastic. The wedding ceremony went beautifully with their music and they had everyone out on the floor for our reception. The dance off between Gary and his best man is still being talked about six months down the line. Liz and Will were great on the day. Everything ran so smoothly we could get on with out dancing. Thanks a million guys."

"Hi guys and gals of Bumblebee Honey - One of the things that you worry about coming up to a wedding and that you have no control over is that there will be a good atmosphere and that your guests will get up and dance and enjoy themselves and that is why a good band is vital.  Bumblebee Honey were perfect for us. The dance floor was full all night and the band were great at judging the crowd and getting the guests involved in the craic and went above the call of duty in getting people to get out and dance.  Also they had loads of good ideas for getting people to dance. The singing and the music was  excellent and all our guests were singing their praises (excuse the pun), which is a really good sign for a wedding band as they have to cater for a variety of tastes.  The band are very professional and a pleasure to deal with.We would highly recommend to them to anybody but beware you need to be fit to keep dancing all night"

Best wishes
