Bruno Mars 'Just the way you are' violin cover-acoustic style 

This is from a practice session. I also play the upbeat pop version.
This one is more subtle, with just a piano backing which is perfect for civil ceremonies.
I've played it a lot during the signing of the register and it enhances the romantic atmosphere. ?

Eamonn and Paul's wedding dinner 

I was invited to play at the wedding of Eamonn and Paul and it was one such an amazing evening. 

I played on the stage throughout the dinner and did some walking around playing to pieces like 'Human' by The Killers, 'Past the point of Rescue', 'Galway Girl' and others. Eamonn had requested lively music for during the meal. I emailed Eamonn and said that there are usually a few dancers amongst the guests when I am walking around playing.
I maybe underestimated the number of guests who would be dancing :D I played after the starter/ in between courses and the video below was of my own instrumental version of 'Human' by The Killers.

Thank you David for the video from your phone as it really captures the atmosphere of Paul and Eamonn's wedding.
Eamonn, Paul and the guests were on top form and full of energy! They certainly know how to enjoy themselves!

After the desserts I continued to play upbeat pop and dance covers with the odd Irish tune thrown in. I was playing on the dance floor surrounded by Eamonn, Paul and the guests. I finished with 'Lord of the Dance' and 'Time to say Goodbye' and was so pleased that there were so many guests up dancing and enjoying the music. I really fed of everyones' energy and they were an amazing group of people! The evening band were fantastic, 'Fraggle Rock', a Galway based wedding band.

Thank you Eamonn and Paul for inviting me to play at your wedding. Congratulations and best wishes for your future together. Thank you also to the staff at Trim Castle, Co. Meath, Eire. It is a beautiful hotel to stay in. I had a room with a view of the castle ruins. The castle was actually the one from the film 'Braveheart'.

Filipino 18th birthday party 

In September I played at a Filipino 18th birthday party for the stunning Shaira. It was the most amazing party I have ever been to. It is such a beautiful culture. It was so extravagant and so much work went into the preparation of the party by Shaira's family, friends and herself. There were many dances by Shaira and her family and also group dances by her friends. There was a fantastic Filipino duo who sang with guitar and keyboards. I played alongside them for a lovely song called 'Beautiful girl'. This was played during Shaira's grand entrance. She had a few stunning evening dresses with so much detail on them. I played a selection of pieces during the event and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being at a Filipino birthday party. The guests were dressed so beautifully. The cake was unbelievable and delicious ?.

RUA annual arts exhibition sponsored by KPMG at The Ulster Museum 

I recently played at The Royal Ulster Academy Annual Arts exhibition at The Ulster Museum. It was sponsored by KPMG: .
I was honoured to be asked. It was such a pleasure to play surrounded by the most amazing works of art, by well established and up-and-coming artists of Ireland. The evening was a preview for the KPMG clients and I played whilst they viewed the art works.




Lisburn culture night solo set 

I recently was asked to play a solo set at Lisburn Culture Night at The Wallace in Lisburn. It was a lovely evening. The Wallace is a restaurant and pub and it has a beautiful interior. The staff and food are great. I played whilst people were eating their meals and really enjoyed it. I hope to play there again soon. 

Helen & Ronald's wedding 

A couple of weeks ago I played at Helen and Ronald's wedding in Portrush Town Hall, Northern Ireland. Helen was such an elegant and stunning bride. Her dress had so much gorgeous detail.
                                                           Her flowers were so pretty and her bridesmaids looked so chic in their long navy dresses.
                                                                                Congratulations Helen and Ronald!

Wedding in Ballygalget: Naomi and Gerard Doran 

I recently played at the church ceremony of Naomi and Gerard's wedding in St. Patrick's church, Ballygalget, Northern Ireland.It was a pleasure to be invited to play at their wedding. 
During the ceremony Naomi and Gerard also had four fantastic female singers. They sang hymns in their own four part arrangements. The sound was fantastic. The wedding car and flowers were beautiful!

I also played  at the drinks reception for Naomi and Gerard's wedding at The Saltwater Brig, which is a gorgeous pub near Newtownards. Here is a little clip from the wedding reception. This is my own interpretation of 'Somewhere only we know' by Keane. I play an acoustic version also without the drum backing which is appropriate for quieter events.

This is my Bridge electric violin and it was the first day using it. I love the instrument.


All the best of luck to Naomi and Gerard for their future together as Mr & Mrs. Doran!
