Lucky Murphy

A very big thank you for a fantastic performance. You made all the difference to our party and completely lived up to expectations. Everybody thought you were wonderful. Well done. Incidentally I was also so pleased that you came and went so quietly, without any interference, problems, questions etc, you all just got on with it! A fantastic show. I hope some bookings for you arise from our grateful guests. We have to thank you for the recommendation. It worked out so well. Hope to see you again soon.

Fantastic band and had everybody on their feet! Also very happy and flexible on the day, we were running an hour and a half late all day, this didn't cause them a problem and they just moved their set timings for us.

Absolutely fantastic night and would recommend Lucky Murphy! Couldn't have asked for a better night, got everyone on their feet and lots of family and friends were asking where we had got the band from. We all had a good old knees up, Thank you all so much.

INCREDIBLE. This was from my Mums party 2018 but just re watched videos!

We had Lucky Murphy play at our wedding and were not disappointed. We knew they were good but having them live was something else! Great fun guys that put everything into their performance! Both our Irish and English family had an amazing night and were up dancing. Highly recommend for a wedding or any celebration!

Lucky Murphy

Booked these in summer for our music event and they are amazing Great musicians, the feedback from customers was so great I rebooked them for last month (Dec) back by popular demand. Highly recommend Lucky Murphy best act to suit any event.

Lucky Murphy

We have booked Lucky Murphy for 2 of our charity events and all I can say is that Middi and the boys helped to make both events very successful. The music and the humour soon had the audiences laughing and dancing. If you like lively Irish music Lucky Murphy are well worth going to see . We have also been to other events to see this group and we have not been disappointed. Always performed to a very high standard.

Lucky Murphy

Saw Lucky Murphy show twice in the past 2 years. Fantastic musicians and real showmen. Saw them at Westcott Sports and Social club in Buckinghamshire. Just wished they were based closer so we could see them more often.

Lucky Murphy

Not having ever heard Lucky Murphy I took a punt, and I can tell you we were not disappointed. The whole day for my wife's 60th birthday was brilliant, and the icing on the cake was the guys from the band together with the local Irish dancers, who had only ever danced to CD's and never to a live band before. They were so excited, especially when Mark told them they were the best ever. We were excited and word has spread around the village of what a good time we had. I hope we will be able to do it all over again. BRILLIANT!!! BRILLIANT!!! BRILLIANT!!!

Lucky Murphy

Massive thank you to the band for playing at our wedding. I think its safe to say you kept the party going and everyone on the dance floor. My Irish relatives were really impressed and couldn't believe you weren't Irish. Would highly recommend great music and really friendly. Thanks again!!

Lucky Murphy

I just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks. You lads were absolutely brilliant and really got the festivities going. I got a lot of feedback and praise from our guests about how good the live band was so I wanted to relay that back to you. You really set the tone for the evening and we could not be more delighted with how you guys were and how it all went. Thank you again so much for making the trek down, you guys really made the day for us. Everything was absolutely perfect (including the weather!) and having such a good live band to get the party going really was the icing on the cake, not just for us but for all of our guests. Best wishes and many thanks. Paul and Adrienne.

Lucky Murphy

What can I say about Lucky Murphy? They are amazingly talented men, with so much charisma! They had everyone up, dancing and jigging along! Very professional but relaxed at the same time, they had such a laugh with our guests and just a joy to have there! Couldn't have picked a better band! They arrived with plenty of time and confirmed everything well in advance on the event so it all ran smoothly. Thank you so much for making the night what it was! I honestly can't recommend them enough!

Lucky Murphy

Well, we can only start this review with a great big W*O*W!! With our wedding party half Irish, half Cornish we knew it was gonna be a good old knees up and how lucky we were to have stumbled across Lucky Murphy!! You guys made our wedding reception and we are sooo thankful you were mad enough to drive all of the way to Cornwall to bring the party to us!! You got everyone up dancing and having a fabulous time, your set up on stage looked fab with your Lucky Murphy banner and the lighting was fab and to have the original trio together meant you all had a great time yourselves too! We can't thank you enough ~ if anyone is in any way hesitant on booking these guys, don't be ~ they are polite, friendly and their mantra seems to only be that they want everyone to have a great time which is exactly what you get! Whoop whoop!

Lucky Murphy

We have seen them live twice last year and were blown away by them. A true act that gets everyone up dancing and singing. Can't wait to see them again!

Lucky Murphy

Well what can I say absolutely amazing wow! Lucky Murphy played at our wedding In July and were perfect in every way all our guest have said how much they loved you as a band thank you so much for everything.

Lucky Murphy

A fantastic band, they had the place jumping. Lovely guys as well, professional and accommodating. Would highly recommend for any occasion that wants a great fun night.

Lucky Murphy

You have seen Sunday night at the London Palladium. You have seen Top of The Pops and the Royal Command Performance. Lucky Murphy have also seen these programmes.
A Thoroughly professional outfit who's use of humour with their music created a wonderful atmosphere in the club. What a pity they are already booked up for next years St. Patrick's night.
