Wedding Band

The Natural Gas Wedding Band

County Cork’s finest band, The Natural Gas Wedding Band, combine traditional skills with modern musical technology to re-create the best loved dance music from the 1800’s to the millennium.

The five band members share a broad experience, ranging from the Irish dance hall circuit to the many folk festival stages of Europe, the U.S and Australia.

Whether it’s a wedding, dinner dance, party or concert, The Natural Gas Wedding Band are committed to providing the best possible combination of musicianship and showmanship to make it a success.

Fully professional, The Natural Gas Wedding Band, have an enormous repertoire that can be tailored to your requirements.  From old time Irish, to Ceili, to Country, to 60’s Rock’n’Roll, to Celtic Rock to recent Chart Hits, The Natural Gas Wedding Band have the right song to suit each occasion.

Sound quality is of paramount importance and our choice of two quality P.A. systems allow the utmost clarity at either the low levels necessary in small venues and the early stages of a wedding of the higher levels required in larger venues and high energy dance parties.  A modern lighting rig adds a theatre-like ambience to the stage.


The Natural Gas Wedding Band have the perfect programme for any wedding, music to suit young and old,  culminating in a huge finale at the end of the evening.  The right blend of formality and relaxed friendliness will soon have the whole crowd dancing and mixing naturally.

You may have special requests for particular songs or tunes – the chances are that we can already play them but we will endeavour to learn any special favourites to order.

We can also provide the disco music to finish off your evening’s entertainment, if requested.


Natural Gas Wedding Band Line Up

Don Murphy – Don’s superb guitar technique and state of the art equipment allows him to turn from delicate country picking to blistering rock’n’roll solo’s at the flick of a switch. A former member of showband San Bernadino, he is also lead singer with the band.

Ger Murphy – Button accordion supreme, Ger has been the first choice musician of Irish dancers for years, playing for Comhaltas, the Cowhie-Ryan dancers and more recently the brilliant Abbey Ceili Band. An accomplished pianist, Ger also plays keyboard with the band.

Noel O’Rourke – Cloughduv’s finest son, Noel has been a percussionist for longer than he cares to remember and comes from a family renowned for their drumming skills. Gifted with a beautiful tenor voice, Noel leads the rear, armed with a quick humourous with and a gigantic repertoire of classics from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Vince Milne – Legendary fiddle maestro, Vince has brought his incredible style of music to all parts of the globe. The son of a fiddle player, Vince is heavily influenced by the music of Sligo, his fathers county, as well as by bluegrass and old-time fiddle styles. His unique flamboyant style of playing introduces an exciting element to the sound of the band. Vince has previously played and recorded with band such as Kowloon Bridge, Bone Idol and Nomos.

Tim O’Riordan – Tim plays bass, acoustic guitar, blues harp, sings and looks after the management side of the band. Tim is a great admirer of the Clancy Brothers and the late Tommy Makem. Their exuberant approach to singing and entertaining has had a great influence on him. Tim’s songwriting skills have lately brought him great success with “The Langer” being the biggest selling single in Ireland and his follow up album “Come Here I Wantcha” being a hit throughout the country. As well as being a wedding band, the lads frequently perform at private and corporate functions, banquets and conferences in venues such as Dromoland Castle, Adare Manor, Hotel Europe, Glin Castle, INEC Killarney, Old Head of Kinsale Golf Course and even the occasional cruise around Cork Harbour.
