“The Band have played at Uttoxeter Racecourse several times over the last few years and have never let us down. Firstly, and this is important, they are nice guys to deal with and professional to the end. Always on time , they bring their own PA and always give a quality performance of Irish singalong dance along covers! Thanks to The Whiskey Priests this years St Patrick’s race day event was a total sellout. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any event or party. ”


Brilliant band. As always a fantastic night at Doveridge Village Club Beer Festival.
Guaranteed to get you up dancing.
