Playing in the US & Canada
Wakes, Memorial Services, Christenings, Church Services "Cradle-to-Grave music"
Across the Pond can work with you to provide authentic Irish music for practically any event. we have experience providing music for Christenings, Memorial Services, Wakes, & Christmas Eve Church Service.
We often perform lovely soft background music for dinner receptions following funeral services & burials, ending with more uplifting music to help ease the mind and provide a momentary break from the grief that lingers. We collaborated on a Catholic Memorial Mass, performing Irish airs for prelude music, and Catholic Hymn music for the service. We played a fine party for a first-generation Irishman and were called back a year or so later to provide music following his sons Christening. And we have presented both Irish Christmas concerts and provided music for Christmas Eve Services. Much of our work is word-of-mouth and repeat customers.
Please feel free to call us to see what we might be able to do for your unique situation.
Fabulous performance. Excellent rapport with our group. They played a nice selection of Irish music and songs. The quality of their performance was very very good. Real crowd pleasers. Received a lot of wonderful comments about them from our group. Great attitude and very accommodating. We had a hard thunderstorm just as they arrived to set up and the rain continued for a while. Nothing fazed them. they set up in the area we had for them inside our formal tent and the party went on. They are very professional. I strongly recommend them.

"Dan was very responsive while we were in the process of confirming plans. On the day of the event, everyone was pleasant, professional and respectful. The music was great and contributed some joy to an otherwise sad event. We were very happy with this band and would recommend them highly! " (posted after a wake in Mt. Holly, NJ)
