Pat & The Butchers [Covers - various, 4 piece]
We hired Pat and The Butchers for my 50th birthday party. From the moment we booked the band Julie kept in touch with us. We discussed song choices and had a joint Spotify list. Julie got everyone up dancing even my 85 year old mum. We had a great night and would definitely recommend this band to anyone looking to have a party.Amanda Green, Thursday 5 May 2022
Thank you so much Amanda! We had so much fun playing for you and your wonderful family and friends, it really was a hoot! We're glad you enjoyed it and really appreciate the kind words. P&TBs x
Pat & The Butchers were just what we need for our Christmas party 2021. We had a lovely dinner at the Loft restaurant and then they came and delivered an awesome set that had everyone up and dancing and even singing along in places. They are just great fun, we simply didn't want the night to end! The whole band were clearly up for making it a brilliant night and this definitely set the right tone for our Christmas party. A huge thank you to all of the band members but also to Julie who is just an incredible singer and made sure everything went really well in terms of preparation and the night itself, we will be sure to use you again! Merry Christmas! from everyone at BEARJo Agnew, Thursday 23 December 2021

Pat & The Butchers ✌️❤️🎶
I have had some of my happiest moments dancing to Pat and the Butchers (including all gigs at the Farmers boy)
They have been part of our journey. I proposed to Gill in the middle of them playing Dakota (our favourite song) with all our friends singing “Take a look at Gill now”, which Julie helped organise . When we finally got married there was only one band for us. The charismatic Julie was the perfect wedding MC giving shout outs to all the people and groups we wanted mentioned. She moved through the crowd like a force of nature whooping up excitement and happiness levels. I can only eulogise about these wonderful people. Their performance on the night was incredible. Our wedding guests old and young loved them. Wayne commented “What a fun band with great personality, that not only sound great but grab you and pull you into that party mood”. Tony on drums, Ham on bass and Andrew, Seb and Keith on guitar never let you down and sound really tight. Liz gushed, “They are effervescent. They lift the crowd and keep you going all night”. Julie liaised with me in the months ahead of the wedding, improving all our playlists and requests. We asked for Dakota twice and we got it. Basically they are the sexiest band out there and they make you feel sexy. Oh, we also requested “You sexy thing”. If you want a wedding band , you cannot do better than Pat and the Butchers. Love ‘em to bits xxxDavid Falvey, Friday 10 September 2021
Wow Dave, what an awesome review! Your journey, proposal and wedding are up there with some of our best gigs and vibes.
We have felt honoured to be a part of it, and now lifelong friends!
We look forward to playing Dakota for the two of you for years to come and wish you all the happiness together ❤️
Thank you for your kind words x
We just hired Pat and the Butchers for our wedding evening. Julie and the players were great. She really gets everyone in the party mood and on the floor. She also inspires lots of confidence beforehand with some excellent organisational skills, lots of communication and help in choosing songs. I’d strongly recommend the band.Becky, Saturday 28 August 2021
Thank you so much for the kind words
Becky, it was an absolute delight to play your big day! x
When planning our wedding, we got told about Pat & The Butchers by a friend, so we went to see them at The Mermaid. We know after the first song, Stereophonics-Dakota (our request), that they would be perfect for our wedding.
Communication with Julie (Pat) when we were sorting out logistics was great. What was particularly good was being able to choose some of our favourite songs from their extensive list that we wanted them to play on the night.
On the night of the wedding, the band played two 1 hour sets filled with top-class floor fillers. We recall Dakota being the biggest sing-along of the night, but other highlights included 'Somebody Told Me', 'Go your Own Way', 'You Sexy Thing', Does Your Mother Know' and the finale, 'You've Got The Love'.
After the show, Julie and Ham stayed on as DJs to keep the party going for a bit longer.
All of our friends and family thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have commented on how much they enjoyed the music.
I wouldn't hesitate in booking them again and hope to see them soon at a local venue soon.
All the best,
James & RachelJames & Rachel, Friday 6 August 2021
