"As the Entertainment Director of Big Rock Pub, I’m always a little nervous bringing in new bands. I booked Flogging Seagulls sight unseen, and hands down it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. A genius hybrid of musical styles performed by incredible musicians, and an amazing presence that captures an audience and brings them to their feet. And by the way: they’re seriously nice guys."
Lisa, Big Rock Pub (Indian Springs Golf Club, Indio, CA)
"Flogging Seagulls was one of the highlights of our concert season, and the response from the crowd reflected that. They played great and they were super professional. We’ll book them again the first chance we get. If you’re a booker, look no further."
Wyatt, Recreation Department, City of Paso Robles
"Flogging Seagulls is music for all! They play a fun, compelling blend of '80s hits with their own Irish twist. They performed at one of our summer outdoor concerts and had the crowd engaged, with playful banter and a fantastic sound, and they even came back onstage to give the crowd an encore! Each member of the band was professional and great to work with, and we hope to have them back soon! 10 out of 10!"
Ryan, Recreation Supervisor, City of El Segundo
"I cannot tell you enough how much our guests and staff LOVED Flogging Seagulls. They said it was by far the best band we've had for our Summer Concert series! Woohoo! People dig a good cover band, and especially one you can dance to, and that is exactly what you delivered. You all were awesome!"
Mary, Events Coordinator, Tooth & Nail Winery (Paso Robles, CA)
"When we booked Flogging Seagulls for our Summer Concert in the Park, we hadn’t seen their live show, so we relied on their press package, recorded music, and recommendations to book them. Flogging Seagulls did not disappoint! We couldn’t have been more excited about their unique blend of ‘80s and Irish music, and judging by the amount of dancing in our park that night, the crowd felt the same. The band members were professional and a joy to work with during the entire booking process, as well as the actual event. The music was delightful and the concert attendees couldn't get enough!"
Melissa, Recreation Supervisor, Templeton Community Services District (Templeton, CA)

"I had the pleasure of working with Flogging Seagulls for our Concert in the Park. They were extremely professional, and the concert itself was a huge hit. Our local residents had a blast, and the band’s energy and sound were awesome. I have booked bands for 12+ years and they don’t always sound like their demo, but Flogging Seagulls do! I would book them again without hesitation."
