We performed pre-ceremony music and a cocktail hour for Summer’s wedding in Sedona. This included setting up sound systems in 2 different locations and learning Billy Joel’s “Lullaby”, “So Close” from Disney’s Enchanted, and “Shippin’ Up to Boston”...

“Trotters Wake was incredibly accommodating and professional! We requested some special songs for our wedding and Drew and his crew were more than happy to oblige. They even stayed overtime when we got behind schedule. The music is fun and lively and I would recommend them for any wedding looking to honor their Irish background, love of pubs, or just something new and fun! Thank you Trotters Wake for joining us on our big day and helping make it fun and memorable for all! — Summer”

 

This was a trio of guitar/mandolin, fiddle, and bodhran/keyboard in the client’s back yard...

“Loved the music and the members of the band. They made my moms 80th birthday very special. I'd love to hire them again. Very professional and very nice people.—Daryl”

 

We put together a complete wedding music package for Caitlin and Nelson, including pre-ceremony music, ceremony processional/recessional, cocktail hour, and sound equipment rental…

“Drew

You and the band were all-around amazing in so many ways. You were so accommodating of my need to know thousands of details (it's stressful planning a wedding by yourself, which I was), go over the same things a few times, and holding a flexible schedule for the evening. You were all so competent (not always the norm when dealing with vendors for a "DIY" wedding), I didn't even need to worry as much as I did--you could have just shown up and it would have all been fine because you are all so talented and professional. Ha! 

Someone was helping my mom with my son during the ceremony (I'm sorry the day was such a blur but I think it was Sandy?), and I think it was Anna that came over to tell me how much SHE enjoyed being part of the day for us and expressed such heartfelt wishes and thanks....you guys are just great people and great musicians. Thank you all for helping to make my day EXACTLY how I wanted it to be. My guests absolutely loved you guys and so many of them took the time to send me their compliments of the band. 

Thanks again for staying later to work the sound system...again, my family and friends had a blast being able to dance to their music that the band so graciously provided the sound for. I was really stressed about renting a sound system and then having something go wrong and no one knowing how to resolve the issue. You guys being there took all of that away so I could relax and enjoy myself. 

Hope you enjoyed the food and were able to get some beer! Couldn't be happier that my guests enjoyed you all so much, and your presence made the whole atmosphere I was trying to create really come across. 

All the best,

Caitlin and Nelson”

 

Trotters Wake pulled together a benefit performance to raise money for the American Heart Association in preparation for the Phoenix Heart Walk...

”Trotters Wake puts on the best live show I've seen in a long time. I saw them at Fibber Magees in Chandler, and had the whole place laughing with their great songs and audience participation. They're also playing at the 2013 Greater Phoenix Heart Walk this March and I can definitely say that I'm thrilled to have this lighthearted, and very talented, group at the event!" ~ Nora Perry - Heart Walk Development Director, Phoenix

 

Sandy L. booked us through GigMasters for a church St.Patrick’s celebration...

We had many compliments about the group...the professionalism was great as well as the laid back personalities of the group. Drew was very easy to work with during the negotiations. We have many requests to have them back again. ...of course, everyone thinks I’m the genius for hiring you.

 

Erin O. booked us through GigMasters for her wedding reception. Here is what she had to say...

Hi Drew—I just left a review for Trotters Wake on GigMasters.  We really enjoyed having you at the wedding.  Our guests said that it was one of the most fun weddings they had ever attended.  I know much of that had to do with your entertainment.  Evan and I thought you guys were great and we loved the atmosphere you created.  We were so happy with the whole evening.

Erin’s GigMasters review...

We were EXTREMELY happy with Trotters Wake! We didn't do the traditional band or DJ, so they were our only entertainment after dinner. We asked them to play fun, upbeat music, which they certainly did. Our guests really enjoyed that they brought books of the lyrics so that they could sing along. Our only regret is that we didn't book them for longer, because the guests were having such a great time. We would absolutely book Trotters Wake again for our next event.

 

Catherine booked us through GigMasters for a fundraiser event sponsored by the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) Barony of Atenveldt...
