Route 66 are a 16 piece band (14 musicians plus a male and female singer). Our playlist is ideally suited to Corporate events, weddings and any event that needs a band likes ours.
Route 66 Big Band is made up of experienced musicians from Dublin, Meath and Kildare blended together to produce the very best in Big Band entertainment. A normal performance consists of one hour nonstop music for dancing followed by a short interval and a further hour of nonstop music all aimed at keeping the dance floor full throughout the night.
I would like to congratulate you most sincerely on the show at the Civic Theatre on Friday night last which from beginning to end was a joy to behold in every sense. When the curtain went up, the first notes filled the auditorium and immediately feet started tapping and heads started bobbing. Music is supposed to do this,resonate with the listener, and the band delivered with ease whilst clearly enjoying themselves. The entire set was fabulous, starting with Glen Miller and going through the decades to the more recent Amy Winehouse. There was something for everybody and the vocalists were outstanding but overall this was a band performance in a lovely party atmosphere. Oh by the way the volume was also at a sensible level, very important that! I will happily recommend this show to all my friends and acquaintances.

I can't wait for this band to come back to the Civic Theatre as they were truly fantastic!!!!! Great great show and well done to the Civic Theatre for getting such a fantastic band.
Really great night.
Hi, we have one complaint and that was the show was over so quick, it was really so entertaining. We thought the Route 66 Band were superb in every sense of the word, well balanced in musical content,vocally a joy and the sound so well balanced, no annoying wuffy bass. The band's enthuiastic enjoyment of their craft seeped across their entire performance. This was my first visit to the Civic Theatre and I must say a very positive one... all in all a great night's entertainment at a very reasonable cost.
It was a great Show, Great Music, Class.

Olive, Dunboyne Castle wedding
To all our friends at Route 66
From the bottom of our hearts and the blisters on our feet?? Thank you, thank you, thank you for being SO amazing on our wedding day in Dunboyne Castle on Saturday last the 27th December. It is not an exaggeration to say that at least 100 of the 130 guests commented on how amazing our band was. Even our hired photo booth owner said Route 66 was one of the most incredible bands he had ever heard…. And he has done 100’s of weddings. Direct quote.. All that remains now is to how to justify hiring you again!!!
Thank you to one and all, Olive and Patrick

Laura Malone To Pat and Route 66 Big Band: Thank you for the wonderful show you put on for my wedding on June 20th last. The band was spectacular and such a focal point, the guesst couldn't get over the size of the 16 piece band, and yet at no time was the music overpowering. I danced all night and enjoyed every single number. Thank you also for learning U2's 'One' so that I could dance with my dad to his favourite song, that meant a lot to him. Pat was wonderful to deal with throughout the entire wedding planning process, and regularly gave me band updates. I could not recommend the band highly enough and feel that you made my wedding reception really special and one to remember, Very best wishes, Laura Malone
Rebeca Kemp, Rose of Tralee Festival Route 66 played at this year's Rose of Tralee Ball . This prestigious event marks the opening of the festival and is attended by over 900 guests. Route 66 entertained all our guests in a style that kept the dancefloor of The Dome packed all night. We are delighted with the positive comments and compliments we received from our guests about how much they enjoyed dancing and listening to Route 66. We have no hesitation in considering them again for such an occasion.
Mary, Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny We have got great feedback from our Christmas Party Night last Saturday and thanks a million for your great effort in making it such a success for all concerned. If you are available and willing we would gladly have you back for our Christmas Party Night and we will most certainly add your name to our wedding package list of bands.
Liz & Brian - New Bride & Groom 'Best Band in Ireland! Thank you so much for such fantastic entertainment on our wedding day. The dance floor was full all night. The music suited all ages. So many friends and family commented that it was the best wedding band they had ever seen. In fact, my cousin has booked you for his wedding. We are very excited about seeing you again in July 2013. One of our favourite things about the day was the great dancing with friends and family to your wonderful music. Thank you. Robin and Elizabeth. We hope this helps to get you so many more bookings Pat. I was at another wedding recently and another Brass Band in Ireland (a rather well known band!) was performing. It confirmed our feeling that we had the best wedding band in Ireland! Thank you very much Pat and everyone else. We are looking forward to seeing you in July.
Laura McCluskey - New Bride Pat I can't thank you enough for such amazing memories. We will never forget the truly memorable night of all our family and friends dancing the night away. By far the best band out there and we will not hesitate to recommend Route 66 to any bride or groom to be.
