Want to have music all day? We can cover it, from pre-dinner drinks reception music (contemporary acoustic and funky covers), to the cool floor fillers after dinner, followed by our full wedding DJ service. We have the option to add extra musicians to the band, keys and sax to make it a little funkier. See our price guide for our different options.
If you come and see us live you will notice we play a lot of indie pop and modern chart music, but we also do all the old party favourites, rock ‘n’ roll, waltzes, quicksteps, jives, swing, 80's and 90's to keep all ages happy and on the dance floor. Booking our professional DJ service will make sure the party never stops!
CUSTOMISE YOUR BIG DAY
We have a few different options you may like to choose listed below. We understand that every event is different, if you have any ideas please don’t hesitate to get in touch and let us know what we can do to make your big day that little bit extra special.
The Judges Band Evening Band
The Judges are the biggest sounding band you’ll ever hear! Our rough working budget is between 2200 - 2600 depending on what services you require. We will provide an evening’s entertainment with sound system, sound engineer and backing music before & during the break as standard.
The band will play for 2 to 2½ hours which can include a short break to suit the requirements of the venue and the wedding. We recommend a 1-hour set, 20-minute break, another set 1 hour set, followed by our DJ service. This is just ‘recommendation’ we are always very flexible to your needs, and anything can be customized to your plan.
We always recommend having some form of entertainment during the reception drinks. Even a small amount of background entertainment really sets the tone for the evening and creates a fabulous warm ambiance leading up to the dinner. This could be a one-piece piano, or piano and saxophone or, the Judges doing a ‘Live Lounge’ style acoustic set. Again, it’s totally up to you! The price is €250 for a solo performer, €450 for two musicians or €650 for a Judges acoustic set.
Whether you're looking for a classic wedding set list or something a little more alternative, we have a few different options to suit many different tastes and styles. Choose between a female or male vocalist with guitar or keys. We have options to cover all genres of music, be it classic, traditional, modern or alternative. Make sure your ceremony is personal and special!
We treat every gig as Whembly! We turn up with all our equipment every time, no matter what type of event. A professional sound engineer is there making sure it’s not too loud or quiet, always just right! Every show is a big show!

The Guilty Judges are the most competitively priced wedding band in Ireland. Guaranteed. No other wedding band in the same quality bracket can provided what we do for the price. We are much less expensive than many other bands because we are self-managed by our own management agency, Partybands Ireland. www.partybands.ie (If The Guilty Judges are not available please have a look at some of or other great acts.)

We provide top quality professional DJ’s! Not just someone from the band playing a pre-made playlist from their phone. This is the end of your big night, we always advise to go out with a bang! There will be no loss of time spent changing over sound and lighting equipment during the event, our DJ will be set up and ready to kick off the minute the band stops to ensure that your dance floor stays full! Our DJ's are some of the best in the business with years of experience on the wedding and club circuit. They will work with the dance floor and have the place rocking. Pick the songs you want to hear, a popular option is to send us your favourite tunes on a Spotify playlist, our DJ can work his magic from there. If you are booking the band we really recommend booking our DJ package as well to keep stresses down knowing that we will be ready switch over with our DJ straight after the band finishes and to end the night on a high.

Add a little more fun and sparkle to your big day.
The Magic Mirror is a revolution in photo booth entertainment! It’s all about capturing candid, real, weird and wonderful moments from your wedding – all through the eyes of your Magic Mirror.
A similar concept to the traditional photo booth, where people have photos taken at events, choosing to use props or not, and get a fun memento photo of the party … but the Magic Selfie Mirror is a photo booth with bells on!
More interactive and with lots of new features and benefits, it will really help your party stand out from the rest, encouraging fun and laughter along the way.
Your guests are guaranteed to be amazed by the stunning twinkle starlit effect of your LED dance-floor.
Your dance floor can be the single largest and most central focal point of your event. So why not enhance where the most important pictures are often taken, the greatest joys are shared, and some of the most memorable moments are created.
