Hey! Thanks for getting in touch and inquiring with Partybands

Let us tell you how we can blow the roof off your venue. Below is some more information about us, including a rough price guide and information about what we do. 

All of our events are booked via consultation. Every event is different and we build personalised quotes for all of them. We would love to find out a little bit more about your venue as we want to make sure we don't leave out anything that's important to you and we certainly wouldn't want to charge you for anything you don't need. Book in your consultation here or at the bottom of this page.


We are an entertainment agency that specialise in Bands, DJ's, Singers and Entertainers. We're based in Cork city and provide our kick ass acts all over Munster. We are No.1 in the area and pride ourselves on making unforgettable events that will create happy memories to last a lifetime.  

Here are some of the main reasons people like to book us:

  • We manage the most experienced bands and musicians made up of skilled players who have years of experience performing at venues, weddings and events. We can pack a dance-floor every time, guaranteed!

  • Our acts are versatile and can play a wide range of music genres. We can easily customise their massive playlists to fit the mood and theme of your event. Playing songs that include all ages and get everybody involved.

  • Performing is our full time job! We take our job very seriously, arrive on time, dress for the event and spend time with our clients. Most acts only book up to 80 events per year so they can dedicate themselves fully to our clients. 

  • We have more gear than U2! (Not really, but close!) We have a high-quality sound & lighting equipment. This ensures that your guests can hear every note and dance away under the cool light shows! We make sure it’s not too loud or quiet, always just right. Every show is a big show!

  • Our acts love to engage with the crowd and create an atmosphere that gets everyone on the dance floor. 

  • We create a unique and memorable experience for you and your guests. Live music adds a special touch to any event and creates memories that last a lifetime.

  • Selected acts that fit the vibe and atmosphere you are aiming for.

  • Peace of Mind. You can relax and enjoy yourself knowing that the entertainment is in good hands. 


Venue Entertainment Management - we can do all the hard work, booking the acts, making sure they turn up, last minute fixes in events where musicians are sick, payments & invoicing, sound and lighting. You name it we got it covered. 

Please get in touch for a quick chat, we would love to hear more about your needs and what your ideas for the event are! Every event and venue is different and we like to tailor the experience.


We specialise on looking after all aspects of music and entertainment in venues. Wether its a hard hitting party band, a club DJ & Sax or a one man singer guitarist you are looking for, we have an extensive list of acts to call upon. We only work with professional acts as we like to guarantee a great nights craic every time. We offer professional marketing materials, posters and social media content for our acts so letting your punters know what's happing is taken care of and will help draw the crowd.


Booking & Management

Want someone to take care of all the music bookings? Have the best acts rostered in your venue for the big nights of the year, get the first pick of the best entertainment? Deal with the musicians so they meet the style of the venue and clientele? Have all the marketing and advertising ready for your social media? Be on call incase musicians are sick and be able too find replacements? Make sure the acts know how to work all the tech and sound equipment? We do full venue management packages as well as one-off bookings.

Set times

The acts will play for 2 hours which can include a short break to suit the requirements of the venue and the event. We recommend a 2-hour set straight through but we also find a 1hour set, 10-minute break, another 1 hour can work equally as well. A great combo would be to have a Live Music act 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. The act will provide an evening’s entertainment and backing music before and during the break to keep the atmosphere 

going. All acts have their own sound system setup if there is no in house system provided.


Pricing changes depending on size of act, venue location and date. Below is a rough guide to get an idea of costs.


You can expect to pay around 180 - 250 per musician in the band. A 4 piece band on a Friday & Saturday night will be around 700 - 1000.

Solo Acts - Singer Guitarist 

Solo one man bands are generally between 200 - 250 on a Fri & Sat.


Again you can be expected to pay around 200 - 250 for a DJ on a Fri & Sat night. A DJ & Sax act would be around 400 - 600.



There may be added fees for travel and if the act has to bring a sound system.


Be expected to pay an extra 20% - 50% on bank Holiday Sundays and busy holiday nights such as New Years Eve.
