The Conquerors | Ireland's Premier Wedding & Corporate Entertainers

Good music can mean the difference between a good wedding and an unforgetable wedding and The Conquerors are the band to make that difference. The Conquerors are still regarded as on of the most professional working bands on the entertainment scene and have always believed in recording first class records throughout the years as far back as their first number 1 "Baby Blue".

The Conquerors have managed to hold their own over the years, the formula is simple "give the crowd what they want, good music, first class presentation and a good friendly attitude".

The Conquerors specialise in corporate functions and the wedding market and have now introduced the lovely Lorraine McDonald as lead vocalist and sax player to the band.
