"Paddy and his band absolutely lit up our wedding reception in the wilds of the west of Ireland in March 2018.

A super confident, creative, accomplished AND soulful performance - they immediately energized the whole room and magnetized the crowd to the dance floor. Paddy and his band excel at what they do."

(Ruari. )



"We had the good fortune to see Paddy and his band in France, where they gave a wonderful performance, and so when we got engaged ourselves, I was certain that they were the band we would ideally have at our big day. Thankfully, he was able to make it work and they travelled to Donegal to play. They were very professional, made everything very easy for us, and most importantly, got everyone up on the dance floor immediately and managed to maintain that momentum all the way through the evening. Anyone I've met since that has spoken of the wedding still mentions how much they enjoyed the music, and that says it all for me, since a major portion of our guests are musicians themselves. I couldn't recommend Paddy Sherlock and his band enough. They were exactly what we hoped for, no fuss, plenty fun."

(S. Cullen) 

"I was happy to be present at a gig that nestles comfortably in my greatest ever gigs basket.
Paddy Sherlock did a straight through 2 hours gig and it was a model of a well thought out repertoire that took us

on journey from St. James Infirmary to Raglan Road.
Paddy has lived in Paris for the past thirty years, fronting a six man band of rabelasian Irish and French characters, so he knows his trade...
Paddy plays trombone that acts as punctuation and percussion - The best entertainer I have seen for a long while…"
(Shay Healy)


"Best recent show you’ve seen and what you enjoyed about it:"- "Paddy Sherlock, in Shanley’s bar in Clonakilty recently. Paddy is a trombone player and a great singer, from Dublin, and has been living and playing in Paris for the last 30 years. He had the whole audience in the palm of his hand and the atmosphere was electric."

(Mary Black)


"Paddy Sherlock sings of life, love, long nights and revolution and manages to sound like he's lived every minute of it."   

(Dubliner Magazine)


I just love Paddy’s songs and musicians and music and energy… so when he told me he can also do weddings….!!! I just dream about asking him for mine. Their concert was just as perfect as we expected: fun, loving, true, positive! People still talk about this!
