THE FAB FIVE SHOW BAND
Make your wedding day or party perfect for a fraction of what other bands and DJ's are charging.
As we all know, there's nothing like live music to get folks of all ages dancing. Between the five of
us we have played at hundreds of weddings with some of the best known Irish and Irish-American
bands. We also realize that over-charging a couple that is starting their lives together, just
because the catering halls, florist, limo companies and photographers are, is just plain not fair.
We will help you guarantee a perfect dancing and good time experience had by all your guest.
Aside from our combined wedding experience on both sides of the Atlantic, we also feel the broad
repertoire we offer is unmatched by any other band around. We hope you will consider us for
your perfect day
