About Us

We have over 10 years experience playing at parties, weddings, pubs and clubs all over Ireland and abroad. We understand what is needed to create a fantastic night of entertainment for your guests and are sure to keep your dance floor full all night.

We have a wide repertoire of songs and can cater for the more modern couple while keeping in mind that it's important to keep the older folk entertained also. We play from old to new and are sure to keep everyone happy and dancing.

What We Offer

Rubix can fill your dance floor for over two hours with a set list that suits everybody's taste. We tend to cover a wide range of music from indie rock, 60's, 80's & modern chart favourites with songs from The Beatles, Johnny Cash, James Brown, Bruno Mars, Paulo Nutini, Pharrell Williams. We've become known for our mega mix medley that brings back some of those 90's dance tunes we all loved and is sure to have the place hopping.

Our set is always quite lively and full of reasons to get on the dance floor. So if your looking for a modern band who know how to keep everyone entertained then Rubix are the band for you. The best thing to do is read some testimonials, contact us to enquire about your date then come see us at a venue near you to see us for yourself.


DJ Service

We provide a DJ set directly after the band so there is no downtime at your party. We have a wide selection of songs and take great pride in playing the perfect mixes for your guests. Keeping the music going after the band ensures a full dance floor all night.


Ceremony/Reception Music

We also have options for ceremony or drinks reception music in the from of a one piece acoustic show by band member Eamonn or a two piece outfit with guitar & keys, Eamonn & Chris. See Eamonn's dedicated website here for more info & videos. www.eob.ie

Rubix was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day.

Some of our

FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS

HOW LONG DO WE PLAY FOR?

Our set usually spans about 2 & a half hours. There is usually a short break for evening supper (tea/sandwiches) depending on the venue. Our set may span a little longer or shorter depending on restrictions by the venue, not us. We play for as long as we can and very much enjoy doing that. We find 2 & a half hours is a good length for the live band set after which the DJ usually starts.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SET UP?

We usually arrive early, most likely when your still eating your meal or speeching. We'll move in to set as soon as it's possible to. It usually takes 1 hour to set up, sound check and get changed.

DO WE PLAY JIVES, WALTZES & IRISH MUSIC?

Yes of course we can play some jives, waltzes & Irish music. They are usually included in our set anyway to keep everybody happy and dancing.

CAN WE PLAY YOUR FIRST DANCE SONG LIVE?

Of course, within reason and if you let us know in plenty of time so we can rehearse it, if we don't know it already that is.

DOES OUR PRICE INCLUDE TRAVEL AND ANY OTHER EXPENSES?

Yes the price we quote includes travel or any other expenses we have.

DO WE TAKE A DEPOSIT?

Yes we take a deposit to secure your date. Contact us for more info on that.

DO WE HAVE ALL OUR OWN EQUIPMENT?

Yes we use a very high standard PA system, digital mixing desk and lighting. It takes us about 30-40 mins to set up and sound check before we're ready to perform.

DO THE MEMBERS OF OUR BAND CHANGE?

Absolutely not. We have been playing music together for years and the only reason a member may change is if a band member is sick and must be replaced with a stand in musician. This is extremely rare and couples will be notified if this should happen.

DO WE WEAR THE SAME SUITS AS WE WEAR IN OUR VIDEO?

Yes, we suit up with waistcoats and ties same as you see in our video. Gotta look smart!

WHERE CAN WE SEE YOU LIVE?

Our public gig diary is below. If you want to see us at an actual wedding you'll need to contact us as we'll need to check if there's one that suits. We'd need to clear it with the couple and venue first also.

You fitted our day perfectly and we couldn't have picked a better band! We are still being told how great yous where!

Claire & Daniel - June 2015

Just wanted to send a little note to say thank you so much for the amazing music and atmosphere you created at our wedding.

TESTIMONIALS

 

We just want to say a big thank you to coming and playing at our ceremony on Saturday. Yourselves and Fiona our photographer are the talking points of the day they cant find enough good things to say about your set. Andrew said he had said to you on the night but again ill say the first day song was spot on and exactly what we wanted. Also i want to thank you for letting my niece Lauren hog the limelight with her sounds that was a lovely personal touch. We both have weddings in the family coming up and will not hesitate to recommend you.

Gregory & Andrew April 2016

 

Just wanted to say a huge thank you - ye were absolutely brilliant! We took a chance and booked based on the demo video - and can definately say it was our best decision yet - ye made our night 😀 Everyone is asking/talking about ye (plenty complaining about sore feet too 🙊) We have recommended ye to the hotel and will be singing yere praises for a long time to come - thanks again.

Yvonne & Anthony March 2016

 

Dear Aaron, Eamonn, Kieran, and Chris

We are so grateful to you for the most incredible gig of our lives. You guys played the most tremendous set. Every person (including my usually-non-dancing parents) was giving it socks on the dance floor. I was buzzing off your energy. The melody of pop magic was legendary. Please tell me every website you would like us to write reviews on. We were so delighted with your performance.
Just as a little note, I love music and briefly played in a band myself. As I was overseas and couldn’t actually see you live, I researched your band in depth, YouTube videos, reviews, anything the internet could provide and I had no doubt I wanted the Rubix…but you exceeded all expectations. The music was magic. Thank you.

Wishing you all a very happy Christmas.

Aisling and Jayson Dec 2015

 

Hi guys, just want to say a HUGE thank you for playing our wedding in The Millhouse on Saturday night. You literally had the dance floor full from the start to the end of the night. All we have heard since is that you were the best band they ever heard! Thanks a million and we 100% recommend you to anyone getting married.

Stephanie & Michael Dec 2015

 

Just wanted to say thanks very much for playing at our wedding a few weeks ago. It was absolutely brilliant and loads of people have said you guys were class, and they’re spot on. Thanks for being so accommodating of us. Hope we get to hear you at another wedding, Carrick or Carlow soon cause I can barely remember all the tunes I was putting so much effort into my moves, ya know ;), all I remember were they were great.
Cheers and Thanks Again,

Joe and Alanna Nov 2015

 

Just want to say a massive thank you to Aaron and the lads for an amazing performance at our wedding. We wanted a moderen, lively wedding band and knew what to expect from the lads but they completely exceeded our expectations! I will never forget taking a step back and watching the crowded dance floor as every single person, young and old, literally fist pumped and danced for there lives with huge smiles on there faces! It was unforgettable! You fitted our day perfectly and we couldn’t have picked a better band! We are still being told how great yous where! Best of luck in the future guys! Lots of love from, The Yorkes.

“Just wanted to send a little note to say thank you so much for the amazing music and atmosphere you created at our wedding. From the very beginning you were amazing to deal with, you answered any queries I had straight away and nothing was ever a problem. My first dance song hadn’t even being released when I asked if ye could play it, straight away it was no problem, on the night I think ye did an even better version than Kodaline. The mix of songs ye have is incredible from old to young and in between everyone was happy which meant the floor was rocking all night long. When you had me tossing the bouquet I’ll never forget you leaping off the stage like Tarzan to get the shy girls out to catch it. I can’t recommend you highly enough and I wish you all success and happiness for the future.”

Linda & Kevin April 2015

 

“Rubix was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day. They were so easy and a pleasure to deal with. For our first dance we requested a slowed down version of a fast song and they performed it perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for better. The dance floor was full all night long and they also did our DJ section of the night and again the floor was full. The mix of old style and modern songs pleased everyone and it was the most talked about thing afterwards. We couldn’t recommend them more. BRILLIANT, Thanks so much guys.”

Stephen & Tina – April 2015

 

Big big shout out to these guys Rubix for performing at our reception last week absolutely amazing live group they had everyone rocking all night long would highly recommend them.

Emily & Daryl Carolan – Dec 2013

 

Hi Guys, You guys played a blinder at our wedding, we can’t thank you enough for keeping the floor full. A highly recommended band. Cheers.

Dearbhaile & David Callan

 

Rubix were 100% the right band for us, more upbeat than the traditional wedding band and we liked the variety in their set list, something for everybody there. They kept the dance floor full all night, great vocals, everybody was telling us how much they enjoyed the night. Having you guys doing the DJ kept the party going afterwards with no gap.

Gethin & Kevin – Aug 2012 Kells

 

“We had a fantastic night at our wedding thanks to The Rubix Band. They kept the dance floor full all night with a wide range of music. They played some modern songs that you wouldn’t normally hear at a wedding which everybody said was great.”

Alan & Claire – July 2012 Dundalk

 

“Super band. Flexible with their setlist and great choice of songs. Good fun and good value too which was important to us. Everybody had a great night, thanks lads.”
