Paul & The Waistcoats from the very beginning where brilliant, we had a vision in mind which Paul helped us realise, his guidance was invaluable in the weeks running up to the wedding, every email answered quickly every idea explored without hesitation, we bounced ideas back and forth and this made the day of the wedding incredible, the guys carried out music for the ceremony, the aperitifs, the dancing and then a DJ set! We couldn’t have asked for more, very professional and very good guys all round. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the WaistCoats..5* service all the way. Kevin & Marian PS. Thanks so much Guys we had the best craic.

Where do I start? Sal & Paul played for our wedding in Borgo Di Tragliata and they were amazing. They played all day, the church, the drinks reception and the after dinner reception. The dance floor was never empty all night. My friends and family are still talking about them. So much so I asked them so stay on for an extra hour & that was no problem at all. If you are thinking about booking them. Go for it, you will definitely not be dissapointed and be prepared to dance all night long.

The Waistcoats have won the Couples’ Choice Awards 2019 on WeddingWire and have won the Weddingsonline Awards 2019 in Ireland as “Destination wedding business of the Year”!

Paul & Sal and the Waistcoats provided outstanding music from our ceremony , apertivo, right through to the small hours. They ensured that the atmosphere was lively and upbeat (as we wanted) and we had so many comments on how fantastic they were from our guests. We would highly recommend them – the best band I’ve heard between Italy, Ireland and the UK . Thank you again The Waistcoats

My wife and I absolutely loved the band and the choice of songs by Sal and The Waistcoats. A friendly and very talented group of guys. Our families and friends all thought they were phenomenal and we recommend them for weddings or any party plans. They added a number of songs that we requested as well to their repertoire. They helped to make our wedding better than we imagined. Thanks, Bill and Judy Geoghegan

Unsere Hochzeit war Dank der Band gigantisch. Wir haben in einem Schloss im Süden Deutschlands geheiratet und die Band kam extra aus Italien angereist. Sie hat von Anfang bis Ende tolle Stimmung verbreitet und so wurde die Atmosphäre in dem Schloss noch traumhafter. Wir hatten gemischtes Publikum - deutsch, Italienisch. Es war für jeden was dabei... Großes Dankeschön an die Band für die unkomplizierte Buchungsabwicklung und die tolle Unterhaltung. Alles Liebe, Maria


We got married at Borgo Di Tragliata in Rome in August 2017. Sal and the waistcoats played at our wedding and we could not have been happier with the quality, performance, professionalism, musicianship, and craic of them. Sal is a great guy, cool manner, responds to emails instantly, no problems with any request or query we had. They have a brochure with their catalog but you needn't worry, at our wedding the crowd were dancing from the first note. Great collection of classics and Irish music and the craic and banter were brilliant. Musicianship and presentation was great. They have a lot of cool instruments and equipment and they allowed people from the crowd to sing and play towards the end which was a lovely mix at our wedding. Having not seen them before booking we were a small bit worried which is natural. We definitely need not have worried about Sal. They are awesome and would highly recommend for a wedding in Rome, they were a special part of our day and look forward to staying touch and maybe catching them again at some point.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a few songs that I didn't find on your playlist. Can I also add my own songs?

Yes, you can request a few of your own songs if you send us your requests at least 2-3 months before the event.

Can I use your wireless microphone for the speeches?

Yes, you can use our wireless microphone for the speeches at no extra cost!

Our venue keeps talking about SIAE. What is this?

There is a music tax in Italy called SIAE, which covers the music royalties fee (in Ireland it is called IMRO, in the UK it is called PRS for Music).
The cost of the tax depends on the type of location and number of people attending. Some venues already include the SIAE tax in the cost of the wedding package, but others may ask the couple to attain this certificate themselves. In order to avoid complications, please clarify this matter with your venue/planner.

Does your band have lights?

Yes, we have a light system that creates a nice effect on the dancefloor.

Is it possible to meet the band or the lead singer before the event?

Absolutely! We’re always available to meet you in Rome, otherwise we can also arrange for a Skype-Conference call and answer any other questions you might have.

We have many more answers to your questions on our support page. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, get in touch!
