About
Fiddler/mandolinist Dennis Blake and guitarist/pianist/vocalist Bill Bell specialize in traditional Irish music ranging from lively jigs and reels to your favorite Irish songs. With over 15 years of professional experience apiece (6 as a duo), Blake and Bell have performed at countless weddings, parties, and events. They own their own professional sound equipment.

What could be more perfect than a beautiful slow air while walking down the aisle? Their large repertoire of fiddle tunes make perfect cocktail hour music, and what better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day - or any other day! - than with upbeat drinking songs (All For Me Grog, Whiskey In The Jar) and timeless ballads (Fields of Athenrye). They have been known to throw in some U2 or Van Morrison if the situation calls for it. If a full band is needed, Bell and Blake can expand to a trio, quartet, or quintet with an expansive repertoire of Irish tunes as well as classic Rock and Soul hits. Please inquire for a full song list.

The Bell/Blake Duo was a perfect fit for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The background music that they supplied was exceptional and their professional attitude and talent was greatly appreciated. I would, certainly, recommend them to anyone who may be interested in adding their musical talent to their occasion.

We were very pleased with Bell/Blake duo's professionalism: their communications before and during the event, attentiveness to our preferences, ability to accommodate requests, and adherence to the proposed schedule of events. We received many compliments from guests on both the slow airs the lively Irish tunes Bell/Blake offered. We would certainly recommend them to friends seeking Irish music to accompany events. -- Maria S., Riverdale, NY

They were given a very tough environment to play in (small, extremely small space) but still made it work and sounded great. Hope to hear them again sometime as they sounded great. thanks.
