Can I come to see you at a Wedding?

If you would like to see us at a wedding, you will receive a list of our our upcoming weddings by County only. If a particular date suits, for example, Sligo on March 10th, Nicola will ask the couple in question if they mind you popping in for a listen. If they are happy to allow, Nicola will provide you with the venue details.
If the couple are unhappy to allow, unfortunately we cannot provide details as the night is dedicated to the wedding couple. Most couples are happy to allow a couple to pop in for a listen but we always check to be sure.

As soon as your meal and speeches are finished the band load in and are ready to start within 35-40 minutes depending on the access to the stage.

How long to the band play for?

The Cosmonauts provide a 3 hour live set with a break of 15 minutes. This break is taken when the venue are serving food and tea/coffee.
Please note, if there is a delay in start time, due to long speeches or delayed dinner service, we may have to shorten the live set slightly to accommodate Dj set. We will always play as long as possible.

Yes, we love to learn your first dance and play it live. Sometimes a couple request the original version of their song played via MP3. We can have it downloaded and ready to play via our system. If you have chosen a song that the band cannot replicate, for example- a song recorded with a 40 piece orchestra, we may suggest playing the original version.
