Irish musician 'Jim Brady' wrote "Across the Pond is for real. These lads will assault you with authenticity and pure spirit of Irish music. A breath of fresh air in a genre over-saturated with cut-rate Dropkick-wannabe tripe! Irish traditional music is very much alive with Across the Pond!
Across the Pond performed perfectly for our event. We truely enjoyed their selection of celtic dinner music and then after dinner music. They were really flexible to work with. Give them a shot! They were great!
Everyone very much enjoyed the music played by the Across the Pond Band. We had them play on St. Patrick's Day as part of our church's celebration. They did a wonderful job for us.
This Irish/Celtic band exceeded our expectations. They learned several new songs for our daughter's wedding. They were prompt, professional, and the music was AMAZING!! They played for the wedding and the cocktail hour. They were a delight, and even wore their kilts! Couldn't be happier with this band and the quality service they provided! True Gentlemen and a Lady!! Thank you Across the Pond!!

We have a long list of guests musicians, Irish step dancers and dance schools we have worked with. As a result, we can tailor our music to practically anything you'd like. We had a world-class step dancer teach the wedding couple a choreographed dance for their wedding the month before, then taught some simple dances to everyone at the reception. We have learned dozens of special music for weddings over the years. Our goal is to make your event as special and memorable as possible through music or music and dance. We work hard to make your event special.
We will work with you to develop a program of music for your wedding or other event, with no obligation to book us until you feel ready to do so. Our product is good, and if we cannot sell it, then shame on us. If it is not exactly what you are looking for, then we will have no hard feelings if you do not book us.
Across the Pond, Dan, Mike & Chuck
