Yes we do Weddings and Private Functions

In fact we love nothing more than to provide the music for your special event. For private events we love to play a vast repetoire of  lively loveable music, not just Irish folk music.


We generally recommend our Trio line up for weddings, but are happy to provide 

from solo (acoustic guitar and vocals) to the full 5 piece band,

this ensures we can work to any budget.


Our repertoire includes Christy Moore, Daft Punk, the Beatles, the Pogues,

Johnny Cash, Paul Kelly, U2, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bob Marley, Bowie,

the Rolling Stones, Vance Joy. The Doors........ the list is almost endless.

Request our most recent songlist via email here.


Basically we love to work with you to get the music perfect for your big event.

We have a very long list of satisfied customers only too happy to recommend us.


Also highly popular with couples is a traditional pure acoustic Irish folk bracket

for your pre-drinks or signing music.


Our chief violin player is a graduate of the Brisbane Conservatorium and so

we can even provide a String Quartet for your ceremony or pre drinks.

"It was real pleasure to work with you, made us feel at ease, understood the theme we where going for and helped us along the way and for that we really appreciate it.

The music was amazing and everyone just loved it, especially during the meal, really set the tone and got the feet tapping to get up dancing. Thanks so much for everything, we loved it."

           Cheers from Em and Ray Proud :))

Hi Alan,

How are you?  Just a quick note to say thanks for the 

contact details update.

Ever since our wedding anniversary in Oct,

I've been meaning to send you an email to say thanks so much for the great job the Barley Shakes did at our wedding!


It feels along time ago now, but quite timely that I write as we are

currently in Vietnam on our long awaited honeymoon, with a 28 week

pregnant bump in tow!


Thanks for making the wedding so fabulous, we couldn't have done it without you!


Best wishes,

Kirsty and Phill
