Wedding DJ - We also provide the option of DJ if you choose. Once again our focus is on maintaining the party atmosphere and keeping the floor filled with dancers. We feature all the hits from the Fifties Rock 'n' Roll up to current chart hits and everything in between.
Your wedding day is a very special day and you need to have the confidence that your wedding band can deliver the goods on the night . Atomic Chicken take a great deal of pride and satisfaction in providing a very professional service. The main focus of our 3 hour wedding show is keeping you and your guests entertained and dancing the night away until the early hours. We have a lot of experience in entertaining at weddings but we don?t let this get in the way of having a freshness and an enthusiasm that audiences respond to.
As a wedding band you have to cater for the varied tastes and musical preferences for all the guests. We have a large repertoire which ranges from 1950's up to 2012. Some of the material we would cover would be, Elvis, Roy Orbison, Neil Diamond, Abba, 70's Disco Classics, The best of the 80's, The Bee Gees, Grease, Rod Stewart, Shania Twain, The Monkees, Tina Turner, U2, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, right up to the Killers, Kings of Leon, Lady GaGa, LMFAO and Maroon5.
We also cater for the "Real" dancers with Waltzing, Foxtrots, Quicksteps, and a Siege of Ennis. To add a personal touch to the couples wedding entertainment. We have compiled a list of popular first dance songs that we have learned over the years. If you require a special first dance song not on the list then you can let us know at least one month before your wedding date so that we can organise to get and learn the song. We can alternatively play a CD for the first dance if you?d prefer.
What couples say about us
Mark and Jean
Hi there, I just wanted to contact you to tell you that without a doubt, you are the best band I've ever heard play at a wedding!!! I've attended one or two....... and have never been entertained as well or seen as many people, old and young, on the dance floor enjoying themselves as they did last night. You two are truly a force to be reckoned with.
Marie & Paul
Appealed to all age of guests at our wedding. Loved their version of chasing cars as our first dance. Great craic had by all. Thanks Lads…
I would have to say, regardless of venue or age group, the band can really bring a crowd to life. They got my 83 year old father up dancing and I’ve never seen that before…. Keep on rockin !
Thanks again for playing at my wedding. Everyone had a brill time and thought you guys were fantastic. Thanks for everything
We were delighted to get them to play for the Mayors Ball this year. They have a great reputation and its well deserved. The dance floor was full all night long and so many people said it was the best event in a long time.
Mike & Michelle
First class! You guys made it a great night for everyone, a great range of songs to suit all age groups. Amy Winehouse was a big hit!. Well done and thanks again
We had seen “The Chickens” many times before our wedding so we were confident they would do a good job. John and Danny are great entertainers and very nice guys to deal with. Thank you so much for a great night.
Review from our first wedding of 2014 .....John and Danny, thank you both so much for all your hard work at our wedding on Saturday the 4th January. You were absolutely superb. All of our friends and family were amazed by your versatility and your ability to read the crowd. Your swing set in the afternoon was just fabulous and you had all of our guests dancing the night away until the small hours. We knew you guys were perfect for our wedding and so did our guests who all had a ball. It was wonderful to share it with you. Thanks guys love Suzanne & Peter Carmody xxx
Atomic Chicken Wedding Band IrelandCo Clare,
What time does the Wedding band start ?
We'll be set up to start for 9.00pm. Dancing usually starts around 9.30 when people have stretched their legs after the meal etc., but we will be ready to kick off the dancing whenever you specify.
How long does the music go on for ?
Approximately three hours for the band, including the tea break of approx 15mins. The DJ plays until hotel cut off time for music which is usually 2.30am in most hotels.
How much of a deposit do you need to confirm the date ?
We just take a 10% deposit to confirm the booking. We take payment for the outstanding balance on the night before we start.
How many in the Band ?
There are Two members in Atomic Chicken
Do you play live ?
We play live bass and guitars plus live vocals. We also have drums and keyboards on backing tracks. We find that this gives us the live band sound but with just two members we can keep prices very reasonable for wedding couples.
Do you travel nation-wide?
We travel all over the country for weddings
Do you provide a DJ service ?
Yes we do
Is there a gap between the band finishing and the DJ starting ?
No. We like to keep the flow so the DJ starts immediately after the Band finishes
What do you wear on stage ?
For the Atomic Chicken Wedding Band we dress in black. For the Pre- Reception Swing Entertainment we dress either in suits and ties or in dress suits.
What kind of music do you play ?
We cover a large range and styles of music. From fifties rock n roll right up to the Kings of Leon. From Waltzing right up to LMFAO?s ?I?m sexy and I know it?. We have to have a wide range in order to cater properly for all the age groups that are at a wedding. We study the audience on the night and play whatever works best to keep the party going.
How does the pre-reception Swing music option work?
We play for up to 2 hrs either as your guests are arriving at the hotel from the marriage ceremony or during the meal whichever you choose. We have done both and they both work well.
Do you play to back singers ?
We do yes. We tend to limit the singers to two or three because we like to keep it lively and keep people dancing as much as possible.
