"John & Julien are an amazing guitar duo, we were lucky enough to have them play our wedding ceremony and our reception in Kilshane House. Our close friend gave us a recommendation for them so we went along to one of their gigs upstairs in Bewleys Cafe. We were blown away by them, great setting, great banter, and above all great music. They have some incredible tracks of their own and also put an acoustic spin on some classic hits. Aside from being two genuine lads that love to play music they were also a pleasure to work with, hassle free, have a great sense of humour and were willing to tailor our ceremony to our own musical tastes. We can't recommend them highly enough. Check them out on spotify or if you get a chance definitely go along to one of their live gigs."

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding, It was a pleasure dealing with you beforehand in choosing the music and everyone enjoyed the music on the day, and we got just the cool relaxed vibe we were going for! We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for two cool guys on guitars. Hopefully see you about town in coming months.

I have known both Julien and John for possibly 8 years, both personally and more importantly, professionally. They have performed for me in Medley on at least 30 occasions. Each performance gets better and better. Without exception, my guests are mesmerized with the sheer raw talent. These guys are world class and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any occasion. An acoustic sensation is the only way that I can describe them.

John and Julien played during our wedding reception at Belleek Castle and we could not have been happier. They were amazing! The booking and contact was easy and quick. They played a wide variety of songs and particular songs that we requested. They spent a lot of time on a cover of a special song for my parents which they later also recorded and sent on to me. They are perfect for setting a relaxed mood, exactly what we were looking for.

We were looking for musicians to play during our wedding ceremony and reception and Julien&John came highly recommended to us. We listened to their tracks on their website and the moment we saw them perform live we instantly fell in love with their sound. We had a set of songs we wanted in mind for the ceremony and were delighted that both were so easy-going and flexible and agreed to learn these songs- which were outside of their normal repertoire. From the moment we met the duo, they were very friendly, extremely professional and incredibly talented. A wedding ceremony is already in itself an emotional and momentous occasion and having their music accompany it made it even more magical.
We highly recommend Julien&John and are grateful to them for creating this unforgettable and unique experience for us.

I booked Julien&John for our Christmas party in Accenture. Our MD is a music aficionado and super hard to please. A bad booking on my behalf could have been detrimental. But Julien&John quickly put my mind at ease; our usually chatty team were lulled into silence by their musical prowess. And when dinner began it was the perfect ambiance for while we ate, everyone still talking in a slightly hushed manner so as not pollute the dulcet tones. The finale even saw a standing ovation, and a great big thank you from our Managing Director. I wouldn't hesitate to book the guys again, for any event. Plus they are both gentlemen, to boot.

We couldn't have been happier after hiring Julien & John for our wedding ceremony and reception. John performed solo classical guitar at the ceremony and arranged and performed our song selection beautifully. He then joined his colleague Julien at the reception out in Rathsallagh House and they performed a fantastic two hour set of instrumental pop arrangements and jazz tunes that provided a great back drop before we took our seats for dinner. I found them to be highly professional and the confidence in their musical delivery and relaxed nature added greatly to our day and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them in the future.

-"Julien & John are a highly professional and musical guitar duo. They performed at a restaurant launch I attended and I was immediately impressed by their repertoire, sense of style and relaxed nature. I have hired them for corporate and private events on numerous occasions in the last year and I would not hesitate to recommend them."-

Julien and John played both our ceremony and our drinks reception. They were a hit, with guests complimenting the elegant stylings and asking where found these wonderful musicians. Julien and John were very friendly, funny, helpful and accommodating, from planning the music, right up to the big day itself.
Sincerest thanks to both of you - Jen & Joe
John & Julien played for the drinks reception of our city wedding and immediately set the perfect tone for the afternoon ahead, moving through a sublime mix of pop and soul which provided a perfect backdrop to our midsummer event . Though John and Julien exude an easy going charm, they were entirely professional in all aspects of our engagement with them and we would highly recommend them for anyone looking to entertain and delight their guests.

I was delighted when John agreed to play on my wedding day. Both he and Julian added an ambiance of relaxation.
They set the mood by blending classic and modern songs with skilful execution and understated flair.
A number of my guest commented on the afternoon and to atmosphere set by John & Julian. I would highly recommend them.
Julien & John were the perfect addition to a recent reception and dinner we organised for a client. They are professional, a pleasure to deal with, and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the music.
Thanks so much to both of you for the lovely job you did on Sunday. I absolutely loved the way you performed the three songs for the ceremony and so many of our guests commented to us how much they enjoyed your music also while you performed outdoors at the drinks reception after. Thank you again for stepping in at short notice, you added a really nice and chilled element to our day and we are very grateful for that.

My partner and I had a small non-traditional city wedding and wanted some live music for our drinks reception when our guests arrived at the venue in the evening. I was very focused on the music for the event and I was really delighted with the set that the guys performed, which exceeded my expectations. I have strong views on music and it was important for me that the music reflected our tastes and helped set the tone for the type of celebration we wanted. The guys really understood what we were looking for and made the whole process very easy. John took a lot of time and effort to tailor the music to exactly what we were looking for-even learning new pieces to fit with the themes and our tastes.
I would highly recommend booking the guys for an event or wedding.

Julien and John provided a gorgeous and stylish musical ambience for our guests at a corporate lunch in the Aviva.
The bonus is they are lovely to work with and professional to their core!

Julien & John performed at the Merrion Hotel on November 17th 2016 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of my law partnership Gartlan Furey. I had hired them directly and they liased perfectly with the hotel staff to provide a highly professional and musical set of two hours music as a background to my event. I was impressed by the ease of their delivery of highly intricately arranged pop classics for two guitars and they made a note to include a favourite of mine by Billy Joel which I thought was a nice personal touch. They were also highly punctual, very sharply dressed, friendly to anyone who was in attendance and I would not hesitate to recommend them in the future.

Julien&John can only be described as not only gentlemen but immensely talented musicians. Their flawless performance at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception started off the festivities in a manner we did not think possible. They brought together two cultures with their talent and charisma in a way that we are forever indebted to them.
No request was too big. We know they spent endless hours perfecting some incredibly difficult musical compositions to make our day one of a kind for which we are truly grateful. They were a huge hit with the guests and really gave the ceremony and pre-party that extra je ne sais quoi that every host hopes to provide.
John and Julian genuinely care about the music they perform and the service they provide. It is without reservation that we would recommend them for weddings or events. In fact, they impressed the event management of the venue in which we got married to the extent that we know they subsequently performed at other weddings there - that is a testament in itself.

-"We booked Julien & John for my 50th in The Bridge, Ballsbridge on Sat 10 Sept.
They checked out everything at the venue in advance and arrived early.
They played superbly all evening and really added to everyone’s enjoyment. They also kept the volume at the right level so the conversation was flowing.
Julien & John were very pleasant to the staff, ourselves and the guests and seemed to enjoy playing.
I would recommend them for any function."-

-"Julien and John played at Neil and Victor’s wedding reception at the Chocolate Factory during the pre-dinner drinks reception in June 2016. In the weeks before our wedding Neil was briefly made redundant, and spent a few weeks travelling around Europe planning for the wedding, and for the next steps in his career. While travelling by train through the Alps, he found himself listening to the debut album ‘Streetlife’ by Julien and John, and was struck by the quiet beauty of their music.
That experience made them an obvious choice to open the music at our wedding reception. We were looking for musicians that would set a high standard for the music people could expect throughout the evening, and Julien and John set the highest possible standard. The quiet but forceful beauty of their music mesmerised guests as they arrived, and set the perfect tone for the evening that was to follow. We had a wonderful wedding - the sort of day that we will look back on for the rest of our lives, and remember with a smile. Julien and John’s music was an enormous part of setting the tone for our day, and we’re incredibly grateful to them for sharing their music with us."-

-"I engaged John and Julien to play for an end of term dinner for me and colleagues and friends last August. They played beautifully and elegantly and it added enormously to the enjoyment of the evening. In many ways it was a tricky prospect for John and Julien because the dinner was hosted at a restaurant and they had to accommodate constraints as to the space and arrangements available. They were very flexible in doing so, unfailingly polite and pleasant, very punctual and most importantly clearly love what they do. On the basis of my experience, I can highly recommend them for any event you might be holding."-

-"Julien & John provided the perfect accompaniment to our cocktail party and to launch a piece of art on our premises. They are very talented, entertaining , completely professional and their skilled reworking of modern pop classics were spoken about for weeks by my colleagues and clients . I would not hesitate to recommend for a corporate or private event."-
