About restless band

Restless band members playing live galway

Why We are Different

It's all the little things that add up to a successful, enjoyable and memorable night for you and your guests.

We know our equipment, meaning the sound is never too loud or inaudible. We can gauge a crowd, meaning we know to get everyone on their feet dancing. We understand you may not want guests up to sing, we check this with you prior to the night. One of the comments we regularly get from past couples is how we get the crowd on the dance floor to welcome the bride and groom at the start of the music, meaning everyone is on their feet dancing, we then kick in with the best floor fillers ensuring the crowd is up and enjoying the night from the start!!

Our experience is what makes us different!


Why Choose Us

So what makes us different from all the rest you ask...Well we do NOT use backing tracks, we only play 100% live music. We also have five permanent band members, meaning we do not substitute our players from gig to gig.

What You Get

The band will be a five piece playing all live music. We aim to play for between 2 and a half 3 hours. We also provide DJ after the live music, you can let us know in advance what music you want and what you definitely do not want!

Meet The Energy

We love our jobs, and understand how much of an impact the band can’t make on your day. We always ensure we provide
the most professional service and tailor our experience to your needs.

Some of Our Happy Couples

  • Rob and Marias Wedding

    Restless were a brilliant choice of wedding band. They had a fantastic setlist. Very professional. But moreover they added a real energy to the evening. Awesome!

  • Anne-Marie & Noel

    The dancefloor was full all night which is a sure sign that everyone enjoyed themselves. One of our guests said that you were the best wedding band they’d ever heard and another is recommending you to her cousin. I will certainly be recommending ye to anyone looking for a great band.

  • Shane and Aoife O’Connor

    I can’t remember the last time I saw my Grandmother dancing! You were so easy to deal with and so accommodating to all our requests. You created an electric atmosphere from the very beginning in the way you organise the first dance and people were talking about the music for weeks afterwards.

  • Matt & Lynn

    We'd just like to say thanks so much for providing us and our guests with fantastic entertainment at our wedding reception! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music and we received lots of great feedback about you! You read the crowd perfectly and kept us all on the dancefloor all night. A fantastic band, highly recommended!!
