Curve

Curve

CURVE aim to please any audience, whatever the occasion.

They play the top hits spanning six decades of chart music, check out the sample set list here, you’re bound to see some of your favourites.

They are experts at their trade, having entertained many thousands of people over many years. To them it isn’t just ‘a job’ for the night; their enthusiasm shines through every moment of their performance, giving you and your guests an unforgettable experience!

Tim and Neil, the songwriters in the band have had great reaction to their songs, resulting in them working with Prince’s management in the USA for recording work, but for your event they’ll be using that musical talent with the other guys in Curve to play the favourite hits old and new (their programme stretches over sixty years of the music that you want to hear).

When Galgorm Resort began their wedding packages in 2009, Curve was among first bands to agree to supply the entertainment, coming in to the team in 2010. They continue to do that, with bookings at the moment stretching three years ahead.

They also play at hundreds of weddings all over Ireland, giving them huge experience and the ability to please most people most of the time.

They are also a first choice for many prestigious corporate events. When a company wants a band to impress their guests, a band they know will work along with them to make their event run smoothly, they ask Curve to perform!
The result is that Curve play to audiences at premier events and to happy wedding parties near and far, delivering an unforgettable night of great live music.

Curve is: Singer/Guitarist Tim Torrens ; Drummer/Singer Neil McAuley; Dan Crowe (Keyboard/Piano/Sax/Backing Vocals) and Chris Wilson (Bass/Backing Vocals), together they produce a great sound and a very happy atmosphere.

Wedding band: Hi Neil, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding in the Galgorm. You guys were amazing, playing all our requests and were responsible for keeping the crowd on the dance floor all night! We particularly loved your readiness to have my dad ‘join’ the band for a song! We’d recommend you to any couple getting married! -C. & S. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, July 2015)

Festival band: Hi Ted, just a little feedback on Curve. We were absolutely delighted with the level of performance. Curve were brilliant and you were quite right – they were enjoyed by young and older and played just the right selection of music. Hundreds of people listened to the performance. CURVE was the fitting centre piece of the celebration. There were loads of people from the showband days just floating back generations and I have a class 2 minute video of two four year olds doing a jive to a Beatles golden gig– fantastic. Many thanks -A. (Laurencetown Festival, In the Street, July 2015)

Wedding band: Curve – We are so glad we chose Curve as our wedding band. Absolutely amazing. They got the night off to a great start and had our guests on their feet from the first song until the last song. Highly recommend.
And DJ Bob Esler – One word, Brilliant! Wouldn’t have been the same without Bob. Interacted with the crowd and played any requested songs from old to new. Nothing was too much bother. Would definitely use him again in the future. Thank you.
-V. & K. (June 2015, Galgorm Resort & Spa)

Wedding band: We are so glad that we had Curve as our Wedding Band! They did a fantastic job! They played their instruments amazingly and the singing was unreal! It can be worrying that the band you choose might not be exactly what you want, but if you like the songs on these guys’ play list, they will definitely not let you down! They are worth more than they charge and I have to say they are all absolute gentlemen as they were so approachable and genuine. They had a challenge with our venue as it was a small room, but they managed to sound check well enough that the music wasn’t too loud or quiet which was another of my worries. Finally, I would just like to thank all of Curve band for making our wedding reception so much fun and the perfect entertainment. We had many of our guests complementing us on our choice of band so well done and good luck in your future! Thanks a million Neil. -A. (June 2015)

Wedding band: Hi Teddy, just wanted to thank you for organising Curve and Bob Esler for our wedding at Galgorm. Both were brilliant and great fun as well. Would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone. Thanks again, -D. & E. (March 2015)

Wedding band: Hey guys, Just wanted to drop a mail to say thanks for a fantastic performance at our wedding! We were absolutely delighted with the performance, the set list was fantastic, and it was very tight! The only criticism I have is the sax didn’t feature enough lol ! Thanks again guys and good luck! -B. & E. (October 2014)

Wedding band: Curve and DJ Bob Esler played at our wedding on 30th August and they were amazing!! Curve have an amazing set list and Bob played all our requests! -F. (August 2014)

Wedding band: Hi Neil, I hope you are well. Well what can I say, you guys played a blinder at the wedding, everyone loved you. You were just first class and your music was just excellent. We really had a ball at the wedding at it really went on to the very wee hours of the morning right into the next day, so the heads weren’t the best on Saturday. But we really want to thank you guys again for a brilliant band, and the music really got everyone up and dancing which I don’t see a lot at weddings. Thanks again and hopefully we will see you guys again in the near future Many thanks -J. (August 2014)

You guys were fantastic and everyone said how great the band was which was evident by the number of people on the dance-floor all night! We would recommend you without hesitation to anyone looking for a band for their wedding! Cheers -L. & G. (May 2014)

Wedding client: Oh my goodness, Matty and I cannot thank you guys enough!! You were absolutely amazing and everyone had such a fantastic time! You made our evening so magical and we will never forget it. The only bad thing was being completely owned by my new hubby in the dance-off!! Lol. We honestly cannot thank you enough and would definitely recommend Curve to anyone and everyone! Thanks again. -K. & M. (May 2014)

Wedding client: Curve band was excellent on our wedding day. Everyone we spoke to afterwards did make a point of asking what the band was called and said they really enjoyed the music. We highly recommend you guys. Cheers lads -J. & A. (January 2014)

Wedding client: Sorry for the delay in replying- we just got back from our delayed honeymoon. We found Curve via the easily navigated agency website. After listening to a few songs on the site, we knew we had found our wedding band. The set list was (almost) perfect. You guys were happy to omit a few tracks that we weren’t keen on! You really helped set a great atmosphere in the Four Seasons Suite. We can’t recall a part of the evening when the dance floor was empty. Many of our guests have commented on how great the band was and we wholeheartedly agree. Thanks for making our wedding day so special and such great fun for all who attended! Best wishes, -V. & L. (December 2013)

Wedding client: Hi Neil, I’m sorry we didn’t get a chance to talk properly- the day was so hectic! Thank you so much for making our wedding fantastic on Friday! We have had quite a few enquiries about you and the excellent music. I’ve passed on the details of the website. We would happily recommend Curve to any couple getting married so feel free to use our names on the website for endorsement. Many thanks again -L. & V. (December 2013)

Wedding client: Hi Neil, my wife and I thought you guys were fantastic and many of the guests also commented on how good you guys were. I would be happy to recommend your band to any friends or family planning to get hitched in the future. Thanks again -A. (September 2013)

Wedding client: Good Morning Neil, Keeping well, just settling into married life atm ! The band were EXCELLENT!!… Top class. Not one bit of negative feedback to give. Songs, style everything…. Simply outstanding and we thank you wholeheartedly for helping make our day so fantastic. Please accept our apologies for the lateness of this feedback, things have been manic since the wedding with home improvements, Christmas etc etc but we will be forever grateful for everything and we would recommend the band to anyone in a heartbeat. Many Thanks -T. & S. (September 2013)

Wedding client: Thanks so much for your fantastic music at our wedding at Galgorm on 31st August. You were very professional and got our guests up on the dance floor very quickly! You have a wide range of music for all age groups. Keep up the good work. -C. & P. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, August 2013)

Wedding client: Hi Neil, Thank you so much for playing, was amazing 🙂 We really loved it and thought you guys sang and played really well. Had a really nice atmosphere and loved the songs you guys played. Thanks again J. & D. (June 2013)

Wedding client: What can we say about Curve? So much, and great things at that! They were amazing not only by our standards but our very fussy guests let me tell you – we had such a diverse crowd of people that it would take a very talented band to get them out on the floor dancing. So the fact that every guest was on dance floor, sweating because they enjoyed every song tells a whole lot. Even now my guests ask me who was that band, “they were amazing! I couldn’t get off the dance floor.” I am happy to tell them it was Curve and give them their contact details. Thanks again folks, you were amazing and really made our day special. -J. & E. (June 2013, Cavan)

Wedding client: M. and I would like to thank you all for making our big day that bit more special. Curve‘s set-list was a fantastic mix of old and new classics which had all our guests on the dance floor all evening. The band are impressive musicians and we could not have hoped for a better way to celebrate our wedding day in the Four Seasons suite at Galgorm Manor. The feedback from a lot of our guests has been “this is the best wedding band we’ve ever seen” and my brother and his fiancé have subsequently booked Curve to play at their wedding next year, based on their performance at our Wedding reception. We look forward to seeing you perform again at their wedding. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, May 2013)

Wedding client: Hi Neil, Sorry for the delay I have been ill of all things! Thank you sooooo much for a fantastic set at the wedding- everyone raved about the music and the dance floor was filled! The day is a blur for me but we know we had a good time!! Lol! Thank you again! – L. & D. (April 2013)

Wedding client: Hi Neil, Thanks again for doing a great set at the wedding. In terms of feedback – we enjoyed all the songs, you got everyone up on their feet and we thought the ‘dance off’ was a great idea (would have been better if I could actually have moved in my dress!). A lot of the guests commented that they really enjoyed the band and we’ll definitely be recommending you guys to our friends. Thanks again! -Mr & Mrs G. (March 2013)

Wedding client: Thanks very much, excellent music and we all enjoyed it so much. The ‘Bride & Groom dance off’ was a surprise the sight of me dancing! Super! -C. (October 2012)

Wedding client: Dear Neil and all the Curve Members, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding at Galgorm. We loved the music that you played, which was a really good mix to suit the varied age range there. We were impressed at how professional you were throughout and we would recommend you to anyone. Thank you also for the lovely photo that we found on one of the disposable cameras – that one is a keeper and will be going in a photo album!
If we are ever planning another event when we need a band we will keep you in mind. Best wishes
-G. & V. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, August 2012)

Wedding client: Hi Guys, just wanted to say a massive thank you again from Mark and myself for a fantastic night! Everyone had an amazing night dancing away to your music and commented on how good the music was (fantastic set list keeping everyone up dancing… even the parents). You even gave them the opportunity to wear the wigs (gutted I missed that part!). Wouldn’t have been the same without you guys there! Thanks again! -M. & L. (August 2012, Galgorm Resort & Spa)

Wedding client: Hey guys, just want to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding a few weeks ago! Fantastic music guys and thank you so much for accommodating and assisting us with our strange first dance! Really appreciate all your work that evening and was great to see my daughter smile for the first time that day! lol! Thanks again!:) -S. & E. (July 2012, Galgorm Resort & Spa)

Wedding client: Curve are a fabulous band played all the right music kept my guests dancing all night even got me and my husband in a dance off which had everyone laughing. Would highly recommend Curve for a wedding if you want a truly great night. All my guests commented on what a great reception it was. So thank you guys for making mine and my husband’s day extra special. -N. & D. (Ballymac Hotel, June 2012)

Wedding client: Hi Neil, you played our wedding yesterday at Galgorm just wanted to say thanks very much yous were great and all I’ve had is all the guests sayin…. who was the band ? they were fantastic!!!
so thanks very much for making it a great night and I will highly recommend you.
-J. & B. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, June 2012)

Wedding client: Just wanted to say a big big thanks to you and the band for a great nights entertainment (especially the Proclaimers!) the selection of songs was great with something played for everyone. We had a great night dancing… Good luck with future gigs. -J.M. (March 2012)

Wedding client: “This band rocks! Thanks” – Hi there,  We had Curve play at our wedding at the Galgorm on 3rd November. The band was absolutely brilliant with a wide range of music which made our guests dance most of the night. Not only that but they were very down to earth and easy to talk to. I would have no hesitation whatsoever recommending this band to my friends and family in the future.  Well done lads! -D. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, November)

Wedding client: We were thoroughly satisfied with your performance on the night. I left it up to you to decide what the music would be, as long as you “got them dancing”. You definitely succeeded in this and proved that couples should put their trust in the band, you know what works. It was clear you were enjoying the night yourselves, and the surprise performance of Lady Gaga was a welcome treat, I think it’s safe to say the mood was right for it. After your performance the band didn’t just pack up and go home. You all hung around chatting with me and guests for at least 45 mins. Galgorm Manor are professionals and you are professionals. It really was the perfect day and you fit perfectly. Anyone reading this should appreciate they are dealing with a great bunch of talented lads who enjoy what they do and most importantly for a wedding band, understand that it’s all about the bride and groom. I have no reservations in recommending you to a friend or indeed anyone. Feel free to quote me on any of this. I must reiterate, couples have enough to worry about on their wedding day without trying to control the set list, if they put their faith in Curve, it will be alright on the night! -R. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, October)

Event organiser: The best event ever! I promised Neil I would contact you but am just into the office and as professional as ever you beat me to it! I have to say the crowd and our staff really had a ball. You can tell Neil that P. B. who always played the drums said they were the best band we’ve had and I quite agree. We will definitely be booking them for next year if they are still going as strong. Thanks once again. -B. (The Pharmacy Ball)

Wedding client: Curve were fabulous – everybody thought so – the dance floor was never empty. Tommy the DJ was great too. Thank you so much. Will definitely be recommending then to anyone else who needs a band. Thanks a million for everything, we had a great day. Best wishes -A.

Wedding client: Fantastic band, extremely glad we had booked Curve! -J. & M. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, May)

Wedding client: What a great wedding band! Curve kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night. They were energetic and could read the crowd perfectly, brilliant range of music for young and old. Curve were recommended by another band and they didn’t disappoint. We cant tell you how happy we were in our choice of band and thoroughly recommend them through and through. Thank you for making our day even more special! -A. & R.

Wedding client: Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful evening and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. Thank you all so much for helping to make it so memorable a day for Deborah and me. Wishing you all the best, -N. & D. (Galgorm Resort & Spa)

Wedding Client: I just wanted to give you a quick email to give some feedback for your band and the DJ for our wedding. Keith and I, and all our guests had a great night on the 29 August!  The songs you played were fantastic and as you saw from the dance floor it was never empty! The DJ (sparkles) following Curve was also great and he played all the songs we had requested, which again meant the dance floor was always full and everyone was still going strong at 1 a.m. when we had to finish up. Thanks again for a great night’s entertainment! -A.W. (Galgorm Resort & Spa, August 2011)
