About The Waistcoats

We love to entertain you!

The Waistcoats (https://www.thewaistcoats.com) is a truly international wedding band for your wedding music in Italy with real characters, who can play at your ceremony, set the right mood during the aperitifs and entertain and get your guests dancing in the evening! Let us help you to make your big day a special one!

We are a multi-genre band and specialized in the following genres: Rock, Pop, Rock'n roll, Folk, Americana, Country, Traditional italian music, Irish music and much more!  Our piano player is classically trained and can provide classical music for the ceremony.

We are based in Rome, Italy but perform all over the country. We are regulars in Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Campania, Abruzzo, Marche and Apulia but are also specialized to play in less accessible areas and also in environments with special requirements (e.g. low noise), e.g. Venice and Ravello or islands, like Sicily. We also perform abroad and offer acoustic budget options for pre- and post-wedding events.

We also perform at gala events (e.g. the Celtic Ball in Rome 2017) and provide an entertaining show suited for every event.

  • A professional, entertaining, fun and reliable band
  • A personalized package tailormade just for you

If you are looking for an Irish wedding band in Italy - look no further!! Booking a wedding band for a foreign wedding can be daunting however we were so lucky to have found The Waistcoats. From the first email sent they were so accommodating and as time went on and the 5 star reviews kept coming in we became more and more comfortable in our decision. The guys have a huge array of songs to choose from and what really appealed to us was their ability to play songs for young and old at the wedding. Paul & the guys were so accommodating when it came to learning some new songs for our first dance as well. The cherry on top was the acoustic set that they performed as we arrived at our wedding venue which set the tone so perfectly. We have received so many compliments on our choice of band - a true testament to the quality of the Waistcoats.
If we could give a 6 star review we would - the Waistcoats are well worth it!

The Waistcoats played at our wedding in Tuscany on 7th July and we couldn’t have been happier! Paul was super responsive in the planning and they even learnt a favourite song of mine. Francesco played classical music before/during the ceremony and then they played a fantastic acoustic set over aperitifs. The band let us use their microphones & set up for speeches and they provided a great playlist during dinner. The main event was the live set in the evening where the boys did a stellar job of getting everyone up & dancing, even pulling “Summer of ‘69” out of the bag when they had a special request from one of our guests, apparently it was the first time they’d played it but they delivered it like true professionals. Finally, they delivered a DJ set at the end of the night using a playlist that I’d put together beforehand. The Waistcoats helped to make our day so amazing, I would highly recommend them for any wedding or special occasion.
