Whack fol the daddy-oh! Irish Band, The Lucky 15’s, sure know how to get things started. Combining tales of love and woe, bravery and despair, along with songs from all of the five major drinks groups: lager, cider, bitter, ale and stout.
Fresh from their appearances at the Cheltenham Festival, The Lucky 15’s will play all of the Irish hits, along with a few modern classics too. Expect Irish Jigs, Celtic Reels and toe-tapping tunes that will have you giddy with glee. You keep backing the winners, they’ll keep singing the songs.
The Lucky 15’s have been privileged enough over the years to support such esteemed Irish acts as The Dubliners, The Fureys, and Hothouse Flowers.
Guitarist Josh sings all the right notes (sometimes in the right order) while Bob on the fiddle is second-to-none, and first to the bar. Drummer Lorna keeps it all together whilst Ste provides the walking bass. Backing vocals are supplied by the wonderful Taylor and The Mason. All members of the band are experienced musicians, having played in various other guises throughout the years.
The Lucky 15’s can provide the perfect soundtrack to your event or special day. Please check our Bookings section for details on setlist, and our Video section for promotional videos.

My wife and I booked The Lucky 15's full band for our joint 40th birthday party. Josh was a pleasure to deal with in terms of the arrangements etc and when the big night came the band absolutely stormed it for us. I'd been keen to find a band that would have a broad appeal as we would have family and friends of all ages celebrating with us. The band treated us to a perfectly judged mix of popular irish songs and contemporary pop hits done Lucky 15's style. If you want a tight, professional, really entertaining irish band for your party then you've found them. Guaranteed to get your guests dancing, smiling and singing along. Top craic! Phil Davies (40th Birthday Party )
We booked the Lucky 15s for my sisters wedding after seeing them perform at Cheltenham Races where they had a huge crowd going wild! They had the same desired effect at the wedding where everyone loved them, their music appealing to young and old with a varied repertoire of Irish music and hits and crowd pleasers from Elvis to Oasis. They were professional, friendly and a pleasure to deal with - I would not hesitate to recommend them. Nicholas (Private Wedding)
Booked Josh and fiddle player for my husbands 50th as he loves Irish music. The lads were great, played lots of Irish songs and also lots of other famous songs to get everyone going. Would defintely recommend! Wendy (Private Party)
