We have been a professional band for the past 18 years. Over that time we have played at 100's of weddings and have enjoyed every minute of it.

Sean has been playing professionally for 30 years and has played with a host of top Irish bands. Mark is a classically trained piano player who has spent most his professional career with The Great Escape, Fran has played with Linda Martin and also Jump the Gun.

  • I am so excited about finally finding a band I'm 100% happy with. Paul is a pleasure to deal with & is very prompt with replying too. We have seen the guys this week & have now booked them for our wedding. I'd highly recommend them.

  • Do yourself a favour and book this band.! They are fantastic. They are all lovely lads too.
    They are so popular with both young and old, everyone at my wedding was raving about them.
    The only snag is, you have to book early because they are usually booked nearly a year in advance. They played the first dance and we choose the Guns and Roses song 'Patience' and they played it beautifully. I highly recommend The Great Escape.

  • These guys are playing at my wedding next year. They are excellent I heard them recently at my friends wedding and everyone is still raving how good they were.

    They are so nice and are very quick to come back to you with any queries you may have.

    I cant recommend them enough. My H2B is so fussy I thought I would never get a band but I couldnt believe my luck when he thought these guys were fantastic. Now that is saying something if you knew H2B. They play something for everyone.

    Go on and book them you wont regret it
