The Merchants

Available from 5-piece to the brassy 8-piece Band

The Merchants have been performing throughout Ireland for many years. They pride themselves on offering a "cooler than average" band, which is never cheesy, and never the same performance twice. 

Standard Line-up: Dave Martin's vocals, piano, bass, guitar, saxophone & drums

They’re far from being your standard cover band - They don’t try to make every song sound just like the original... they engage with their audience instead of just occasionally shouting out “Come on up on the dance floor folks”... they don’t go for cheesy numbers or party games... Instead, they strive to be anything but your typical wedding band, carving their authentic sound into every song they perform.

Whether you require a smooth background Acoustic set for a stylish function, or a lively mix of upbeat classics and modern chart hits for an evening reception or partythey promise to give your guests a performance they are sure to remember!

Their seasoned musicians each have over two decades of performance experience, they've performed with many top local bands and artists. They've supported, recorded and performed with artists such as Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Tom Jones, and Snow Patrol, to name a few...
