Weightless Astronauts are probably one of the longest serving and definitely one of the most popular wedding bands in Ireland. Just look at some of the people we have played with... Michael Flatley on 'the Lord of the Dance','Feet of Flames', 'Celtic Tiger' show & DVD plus the new 'Lord of the Dance - 3D movie'. Others include The Hothouse Flowers, The BBC, RTE, Mickey Harte, Mary Coughlan and Daniel O'Donnell to name but a few... And created the radio jingle for Pat McDonnell Paints, 'Paint this town'. We also created the music for the new 'AXEL' rugby DVD that reached the top 10 over Christmas!
"You played our wedding in the Sheraton Athlone on 27th April. We just wasted to say a massive thank you to you and the band - you guys were genuinely superb; I don’t know how many times I was asked ‘where did you get the band, they’re fantastic!!’ If you ever need a reference etc please do not hesitate to contact us!"Rob & Trish
"Just want to say a massive thanks to an amazing night. Everyone raved about how fantastic the music was. We loved the Lumineers ‘Hey Ho’ it was class! We danced and danced the night away ye were brilliant and want to say thank you so much for making our day more amazing. It was the icing on the cake! Just cannot rave about you enough the music was brilliant. You and the guys do and amazing job and I would highly recommend for anyone to book this band because they are Galway’s IT band. Thank you."Fiona and Kenneth
"At one stage when I went out to the lobby area (about 3am) to say goodnight to a few Aunties and Uncles from Tipperary who were off to bed, one of my uncles (you know the type, the smart arse who always finds it hard to give a compliment) stopped me, and I’ll quote him ‘Enda, of all the weddings I’ve ever been to, that is without doubt the best band I’ve ever seen!! 'There was a group sitting outside including my parents talking about how good you were, talk about stealing our thunder!!! Enda and Emma McCarthy"
