We can work to enhance any event or program. Click the suggestions below to learn more:

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, so here are our Wedding Tips to help you plan music and sound for your Irish/Celtic wedding.

Ballads and Instrumentals as background music during a lunch or dinner, followed by some audience participation. Ask about our “Dueling Singers” feature to help raise money for a special cause or charity. In true corporate fashion, we can provide a PowerPoint file to project sing-along song lyrics.

Trotters Wake is uniquely positioned to provide entertainment to churches, since two of our musicians are Christian praise leaders and another plays in a Christian band. Like corporate gigs, we can provide music during a meal, and some sing-along, but with praise music before or after your program.

What better way to celebrate a loved one’s life than to share the music they loved as you remember them? We can provide Irish music before/after a funeral or at a wake, which many people, of Irish heritage (or not), are opting for these days. We also offer spiritual music during the service if desired.

A short set of beautiful Celtic Christmas carols performed by an a cappella quartet can provide just the right touch to your holiday dinner or event.

Duo, Trio, or Full Band to suit your budget at your home or other venue. Gotta have that pub food & pub atmosphere? We’ve had clients arrange for us to play in their favourite pub on an off night. It’s good for the pub, good for our other fans who get to come see us, and really good for you, because we’ll offer you a killer rate.

Performance Rates

We take into account many factors in determining our rate, such as number/type of musicians, holidays, location, sound system requirements, and whether there is a chance for repeat bookings. Be assured that our rates are very competitive and are probably within reach if you are planning a special private party or event. Use The BASH* request form to request a quote or contact our Drew to discuss your needs at:

* If you found us through another booking site, such as GigSalad, please use them to book us. It’s only fair (just sayin’!).


This contract is intended to be a starting point to define the band’s and client’s responsibilities for private events and can be modified to suit both parties. Having a basic agreement like this helps ensure that the client is delighted with the band’s participation in their event:
