"Many thanks Sean to you and your band for making our wedding reception a great success - we loved your performance, our guests stayed on the dance floor right up to the end. You created a tremendous atmosphere which delighted our guests. Thanks to your skill and timing, both of us were relaxed for the first dance and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We would recommend you and the band to anyone who is looking for a first class experience from a true professional who clearly enjoys his work".

You and your extraordinary band have remained in our memory throughout our honeymoon. At this moment we are listening to your great songs in Andorra - many thanks for the CD's. We would just like to say thank you very much. Our wedding was a really exceptional day for us and you made it possible. Your performance exceeded our expectation in every way. Please convey to your band our grateful thanks.

Just wanted to thank yourself and your band for a great evening's entertainment. We wanted to add a bit of quality and class to the evening and you certainly did that. Yourself and the band sounded and looked the part. Thanks for sticking to the playlist - I still remember the whole room singing along with High hopes. The older part of the gathering enjoyed the fact that they could stay and enjoy the music as it was not too loud. The common feedback among all our guests was 'class act'. It was like Frank was in the room.

You were very professional to deal with and your excellent singing backed by quality musicians made a special evening great. Thanks again,

Hi Sean,

(Just back from honeymoon in Cuba:)

We wanted to say a hugh thank you to you and all the band for making our wedding so memorable. Everyone was raving about you afterwards. You all did a terrific job and everyone really enjoyed the music. (Especially me, it was amazing to get the chance to sing with such great professionals!) Wishing you all a happy and busy 2009. Thanks again, Best wishes

Hi Sean,

Both Marc and I wanted to send our genuine thanks to you for creating an amazing atmosphere at our wedding. One of the most critical parts of any wedding, in my opinion, is the music selection. We came across your website during the early days of wedding planning. As soon as we listened to some of your soundbytes we knew we had to have you play at our wedding. Everything evolved from there, our entire wedding was themed around your music and led us to decorating the ballroom in our 'Black and Bling' theme. This really created a fantastic stage on which you excelled.

The music was everything we had hoped it would be and much much more. It was a huge success and your professionalism and kind nature made everything run so smoothly. All of our guests loved it. You worked with us to change the structure slightly and first started with a 30 minute sit-down show for our guests while dessert was served, this was something different and a throw back to the Rat Pack days and the Las Vegas shows. Then it was time for our first dance followed by an hour of dancing with our guests. It worked so well with your style of music and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for doing that for us. Having the 12-piece band supporting you was incredible. Thank you for making our dreams come true.

Hi Sean

We'd like to thank you so much for helping celebrate our perfect day. Both Sarah and myself love Sinatra and having you there was like being with the man himself - We can't stress how much we enjoyed your performance as well as the guests who were at the wedding -

Our Wedding Video shows it. I don't think the Four Seasons dance floor has ever been so packed from start to finish. Young and old dancing the night away it was a great performance. We will be keeping an eye out for you as we will definitely come and see you again. Thanks for helping making our day a truly, once in a life time experience. Best wishes for the future and I recommend any one hiring entertainment to experience the talents of Sean "Sinatra" Hession. Best wishes

Thank you so much for such a fantastic performance at our wedding in September 2008. You and your band were superb and added such a brilliant extra dimension to our wedding reception - we loved every minute of your music, and as you saw, so did all the guests! Thank you also for the professionalism and skill you showed to turn our day into such a memorable one (especially vis a vis the saxophone player!!). Best wishes,

Sean, Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for performing at our Wedding in Kinnitty Castle. You and your band were superb and the professionalism you showed from the outset really made Helen and myself relax - one less thing to worry about. On the night itself the music was brilliant and everyone commented on how full the dance floor was for your entire set - everybody was up dancing from the start. It was a great ending to a great day. Many Thanks,

Séan,

Many thanks to you and your guys for Friday night. We absolutely loved it and the reaction from everyone that was there continues to be uniformly extremely positive - from very young to very old! Thanks for helping to make the day very special and making a good party, great! We'll see you at one of your concerts.

Hi Sean,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for a fantastic performance at our wedding in September. The guests have not stopped talking about you and your band. It really made the night for us and took the pressure off. I'm not one for chat forums but I felt compelled to find one in order to recommend you: http://www.weddingsonline.ie/

Sean Hession (Frankly Sinatra) played at our wedding in September. We were blown away. The dance floor was full throughout the night and the guests loved it. Sean and his crew were very professional and despite our speeches running well overtime, he reassured us by telling us to forget about the entertainment, that was his job and that he would play the full set, regardless of how long it took. He mingled with the guests between sets chatting with them and making sure everybody was enjoying themselves. In fact the band stayed up until about 5am playing sets with the guests in the members bar, fantastic night. Frankly Sinatra was worth every penny, and if you can get these guys you'll be guaranteed a great night and at least it will be one part of your wedding you don't need to worry about.
Any opportunity we get to further recommend you we will. Many thanks again

Thanks Sean for all your help with our wedding celebrations. Thanks to the skill and professionalism of you and your band our special occasion was turned into a night to remember for all who attended. Frankly Sinatra turned out to be a great talking (and dancing!) point for everybody during the night. I can highly recommend Sean and his band for any wedding or special occasion. It was a great "ice breaker" and took us swiftly from the formal part of the day to a relaxed, swinging evening. Thanks again Sean, we hope to see you soon at one of your concerts.

"We got married on the 12th of August in the Osprey Hotel in Naas. We decided to get Sean Hession to sing at our reception as we had heard him in the National Concert Hall before. We thought this would be different as wedding receptions can be long. He was a huge hit with our guests. We cannot fault his performance. He was there before any one arrived and kept everyone entertained till the meal. His professionalism was only out shown by his remarkable voice. There was such a relaxed atmosphere about the reception.
Money well spent in our eyes as the party started early and kept the entire wedding group together. Everyone was in such high spirits after Nearly 3 Hours of Frankly Sinatra." Thanks again Sean

"I recently got married in Tattersalls, Ratoath, Co. Meath. Frankly Sinatra provided the entertainment on the night and both my husband Brian and I, along with all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed their performance.
I gave Sean (Hession) instructions before the night, that I wanted up-tempo, lively music throughout their performance to ensure that everyone was on the floor! I can honestly say, the dance floor was packed for the entire night!!
Frankly Sinatra not only get the crowd going but interacted with them and played a fantastic mixture of golden oldies and newer crooner tunes! We would both gladly recommend Frankly Sinatra as an ideal band to suit all weddings and would have no hesitation in using them again for other suitable events." Kind Regards,
Niamh and Brian

Hi Sean,

Many thanks for the excellent and swinging music you provided at the wedding reception for my daughter, Sarah, at the Brooklodge last Saturday. All our guests enjoyed it as much as I did (and I am an avid Sinatra fan), and it added a lot to a wonderful occasion. Best wishes,

Hi Séan,

We just wanted to thank you for everything. The professionalism of yourself and your band helped us have the most amazing day of our lives. Family and friends are still talking about you, and many were asking, "Was that really Louis Stewart?" I can't remember being at a wedding where the guests were shouting "Encore" and "More" at the end of the night. It truly was a night we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thanks again,

"My wife and I knew that we wanted live music at our wedding that young and old would enjoy; we found this in Sean Hession. Sean and his band added ambiance and atmosphere with their expert renditions of Sinatra music. They kept everyone on the dance-floor with a wide range of romantic to danceable songs.
They say that music makes a party and in this case our wedding was made even more memorable by 'Frankly Sinatra'."

"I recently got married on the 19th of August in Kilshane House in Tipperary. My husband and I had a truly wonderful day. For many of our family and friends the highlight of the day had to be our outstanding band which was Frankly Sinatra! Our one request for Sean was to have the floor full all night, and to say he kept his promise was an understatement! Sean was professional from the start, he was the only person we talked to with regards to our music for the wedding and I knew straight away he was just what we wanted, he sent us a CD and was booked without question.
If you are looking for a great and original performance from a voice as smooth as Sinatra himself, Sean is the one; your guests of all ages will be on the floor all night wishing the night to never end! I would recommend Sean to anyone; he and his band are professional, friendly, great fun and incredibly talented!"
Many thanks

"I couldn't count the number of compliments we have received from friends and family about Frankly Sinatra. We hired Sean and his 16 piece big band for our wedding and they created a truly magical evening for us. From our first dance together as a married couple to the last with all our guests gathered round it was a fantastic experience; one we will never forget. I can honestly say that Frankly Sinatra MADE our wedding, it was by far the highlight of our reception. I had always dreamed of having a classic and romantic 50's fairytale evening reception, and Sean and his band more than created this for us. It was the next best thing to having Ol' blue eyes and the Tommy Dorsey band there!" Thanks Sean!
Stephen and Aoife Clark

"A quick mail to say thank you very much for putting on a top class performance at our wedding on the 18 August. It was great to see the dance floor full all night. The compliments from our guests are still coming in.
We would highly recommend you to any couple looking for a band to play fun, romantic and boppy music on their special day."

Dear Sean

David and I married recently at Kinnitty Castle. I just wanted to write to say that we were not disappointed - Frankly Sinatra was just excellent. We had a blast and enjoyed every minute of the evening. I was only sorry that we didn't have time for any dance lessons before the wedding. Both of us had two left feet and didn't do justice to the amazing music. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed your performance. Please extend our appreciation to the rest of the lads. Hope you like the card, I picked it up at the Cal/ Neva resort in Tahoe, where Frank Sinatra used to headline in the 60's..actually I think he owned it. Best of luck for the future.
