A massive shout out to Red Effect and their manager Paul…..they surpassed all our expectations on our wedding day….they had everyone on their feet and rounded off an amazing day with a bang!!!!!! Would highly recommend Red Effect for a wedding or any occasion……..thanks a mill guys ……… 🙂 Noel & Helen (March 2016)


I’d just like to say how much Priscilla and I enjoyed Red Effect at our Wedding on Sherkin Island a couple of weekends ago. Paul was very efficient at organising things and the band themselves were absolutely brilliant! We had a great day and it was made even better by their really lively set in the Islanders Rest on Sherkin Island! Honestly am delighted with how good they were! If in doubt about who to get as your wedding band – look no further! Conall (Oct 2015)


Wanted to post how happy we were with Red Effect for our wedding day on 12th April 2014 in Springfort Hall. From the minute they stood on the stage they were brilliant! Their energy was unbelievable and continued throughout the whole time they performed. I loved how they came onto the dance floor and interacted with the guests. The music was modern which kept everyone on the floor but they also played a few waltzes for the older generation. The guests are still mentioning how good they were! Would highly recommend them. Well done guys!


We booked Red Effect for our October wedding through Paul in Showcase Wedding Bands last year after seeing them perform in Douglas a few times- THEY WERE AMAZING!! From the initial booking straight thru to the day itself, the planning and organising was a dream. Paul looked after everything on the lead up to the day and liaised with the hotel himself so I really didn’t have to do anything more- it was fantastic! On our wedding night, the band were just unbelievable! They had every single guest on the dance floor- at one stage, had the whole wedding party on the stage directing the crowd- it was truly an amazing night. 6 weeks later I’m still being told they were the best wedding band our guests had ever seen! I couldn’t recommend them highly enough- everything was seamless from initial booking to the day itself, the band set up before the meal and caused absolutely no disruption to the evening…. My only regret is we didn’t try to book them for the residents bar after! Thank you so much to Paul and the gang- you made our day unforgettable. Orla and Leonard.


Book Red Effect: Best Wedding Band Ever!!  We just had Red Effect as our wedding band for our wedding in June and they were absolutely awesome!! They had the crowd dancing all night long, played a range of fantastic songs that suited all people at our wedding. The guys were an absolute pleasure to deal with and took away any stress or worries we might have had. They were great fun and all our guests were so impressed! Book Red Effect!
