Corporate Events Testimonials
“We’ve booked Shane for a number of large Corporate events, and every time people are blown away, and it’s always the talk of the office the next day. Shane is very easy to deal with, always responsive and accommodating. He’ll work with you in order to provide your “vision” for the event, although we’ve found his experience and suggestions for events to be excellent and always go with this. From events such as summer BBQs to sit down banquets, Shane circulates and manages to make such an impact on the large events we’ve run. He gives everyone he talks to time, and never seems rushed in his performances. He’s very professional, you don’t have to worry about a thing from when he arrives to when he leaves, which is great when you are trying to coordinate the event on the night. We will definitely be hiring Shane for future events, as his entertainment is always new and varied so we don’t have the usual worry of people having seen something once, he’s caught me out numerous times! Would encourage anyone considering him to go for it, as regardless of your event, he will provide unique entertainment for your guests and you’ll be delighted with the results.”

Shane works the room to get around to everyone without ‘stealing the show’ from the main event and encourages interaction between guests as they chatter in disbelief about what they’ve just seen.”

I am still amazed that Shane was able to keep the attention of young trainee accountants when the food began to be served….normally there is a stampede. They were fascinated by Shane.
Keep up the amazing work!!”
“Hi Shane, I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from our team – your performance really put a unique spin on the evening. No one expected us to have a “magician” there so they were both impressed and totally amazed at what you did! The following day there were a few sore heads but that did not stop people talking about you! We will definitely keep you in mind for further events we might be doing in Ireland – thanks again for a brilliant and unforgettable performance!”
“Thanks for a great performance on Friday. We had been looking forward to it since we saw you at The Heritage. It certainly made the night for our guests and is still the subject of many conversations today. People just cannot believe what they heard and saw.”
You are a very polished performer and we will certainly recommend you to all and sundry.”

Always polite and extremely professional, Shane and his talent are something that your guests will be speaking about long after your event is finished”.
“So yet another (boring) wedding was on the horizon but this time it was my own. I didn’t want my wedding to be yet ‘another’ wedding and dreaded seeing my guests yawning. So off I went on a mission, trawling through weddings online trying to find not only the best entertainment but something that was a little different, a little exciting and a major wow factor. I came across Shane Black, his reviews had me a little excited and he has won best entertainer but the cost was working out the same as my wedding dress!! I took a leap of faith and booked him. Shane was probably the one that I was concerned about the most on the day as I hadn’t had the pleasure of seeing him in action before. Concerns soon drifted away he ended up being not only the best entertainer of the day but the most shocking and still 3 weeks on my guests are still talking about him. I’m just raging I wasn’t part of the guests who got to enjoy his company a bit more !! Our money well spent and please if booking I’d recommend Shane’s own photographer also, she picked up reactions that I now able to keep for a lifetime.”
“Thank you Shane for a fantastic evening’s entertainment. You were completely mind blowing; my guests cannot stop talking about you. If you ever have a couple not sure if they should have you – you get them to call me. I was not sure about your show and now think you were the best decision I made. Many thanks.”
“We had Shane along as an entertainer to our wedding on St Patricks Day. Based on the feedback he is one of the most memorable parts of our wedding. Our guests loved him and you cannot ask for more than that. Our only regret was that we did not get to spend more time with him ourselves. Was not in our original budget but definitely our best investment. Amazing and mind bending. Will definitely find an excuse to see Shane again.”
“I’ve been told by a number of people… “the best money you’ve ever spent!”…
You changed the whole atmosphere of our wedding reception (in a great way!!). Our guests enjoyed every minute of your performance. You have a wonderful presence and manner and created a wow factor that will stick with both Yvonne and I, and all our guests for many years to come.
I will be highly recommending your performance to as many clients and friends for any functions that they may have in the future. I also will definitely be engaging your act in the future for any corporate events that may arise.
Shane, thanks for creating the atmosphere that we were looking for on our special day.”
“Hey Shane, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing for our guests the night of our wedding. You were unbelievable and all our guests loved you and couldn’t get enough of you.
They are blaming you for our first dance being so late as no wanted to leave you in the bar! My dad was just completely taken aback by you I don’t think he could believe his eyes, he has been talking about you ever since! People ask how the wedding was; he says Shane Black was amazing!
Also I wanted to say thank you so much for staying on way past your scheduled time, you are a pure professional and a pleasure to be around. Also we would like to thank you for waiting on Ryan and I to do our first dance and then taking us aside for our private magic performance. We really did appreciate that, as I would have been sick if I missed you.
Thanks again for everything Shane; you are a true gent and pure talent.”
“Just a quick email to say a very sincere “Thank You” for your enormous contribution to our guests enjoyment of the pre-dinner drinks reception on Friday last at the Wineport Lodge. Everyone, without exception, thoroughly enjoyed seeing you in action and are still talking positively about it. Again, many thanks and the best of luck for 2011.”
“We had Shane at our wedding in Sept 2010. He was absolutely brilliant. Everybody is still talking about the things he did with them and all wondering how. It’s amazing what he does, he told guests names of their first pets, what they were thinking and just amazed everybody. He is so nice and a pleasure to deal with. On our video it was great to see the reactions on the guest’s faces – priceless! He was the highlight of the day for everyone. If you’re looking for something different, a wow factor, book Shane for your special day.
Thanks again Shane”
You performed at our wedding in the Ashdown Park hotel at the end of October. You were brilliant and we were delighted we chose your entertainment for such an important occasion. We wish you every success in your career, you are super talented.”
“Shane, what can I say that 100’s of people haven’t said before? You were an amazing bonus as entertainment at our Wedding. ALL of the guests were blown away. We saw magic in front of our very own eyes. It would have been good to get some reaction photos, they’d be priceless. And how can you pick memories out of people’s heads?”
“We had Shane Black for our wedding in July 2011 and it’s easy to see why he won entertainer of year 2011! He was fantastic and really was one of the talking points of our wedding. The guests really enjoyed his tricks and we would highly recommend him to anyone considering something a bit different for the pre-dinner drinks reception.”
“Surprise surprise that there isn’t a negative comment on your page and nor will there be! We got married on Aug 18th and had Shane do the entertainment at our reception whilst we were having our photographs done. This was by far and away one of the best choices we made in organising our wedding. When booking most things for our wedding we looked for recommendations. If you are considering Shane you are lucky to have come across him and go no further, I only hope that my recommendation is a help to all involved as just a small thank you to Shane for making our special day even better. Thank you again Shane.”
“Shane, anyone I have seen since the wedding has not stopped commenting on your entertainment that evening. I think you left a few people shell shocked! All along I was looking for something different for the entertainment in the evening rather than the usual and I found that in your performance, you are a great entertainer. Wishing you all the success in the future and I will be recommending you to others. Once again thank you so much for entertaining us on our Big Day.”
“Many thanks for attending our wedding on the 15th of July. Everyone was enthralled and baffled with the performances. We are absolutely delighted that we booked you and won’t hesitate to recommend you to any potential clients. It was great to have something unique at our wedding that got people talking and mingling. It’s only now that we are back from our honeymoon that we are hearing some of the amazing things that you actually did on the day!
Thanks again for all your help and assistance, it was really lovely to meet you.”
“Hi Shane. Just thought we’d drop you a quick note to thank you again for your outstanding performance at our wedding on March 25th in the Glenview Hotel. All of our family and friends are still talking about you, and can’t get their heads around the tricks you performed. Thanks again Shane.”
“Thank you so much for performing at our wedding on 1st May. It was brilliant and we have heard nothing but glowing reports from all our guests.

Private Parties Testimonials
“Hi Shane – just to pass on my/Jill’s thanks for the really tremendous “input” you gave to our Lunch Party yesterday – it was, to be totally frank, “mind-boggling” and appreciated by everyone.
Having visited your website before we met I was – being me! — somewhat cynical of the various comments on your performance however I can now only add my own comments:
Mind-boggling – totally beyond all my expectations – made our small lunch party a memorable experience for everyone.”
“We were absolutely delighted we booked your fabulous show for our 50th party. We cannot imagine a better reaction from our guests than the one we got. We had groups of guests who did not know each other in advance and I was hoping that your show might help us get some mingling going. You delivered on that hope with interest!
Everybody loved your performance and couldn’t wait to tell anyone who would listen about it as soon as you moved on to the next group. Well done and thanks again.”
“Shane- what a big hit you were!! Amazing, fabulous, fantastic, great success, outstanding, best ever, were just a few of the words used by the guests to describe their experience of you. I was so delighted with how everything turned out. You are the perfect addition to a party. I am SO pleased.
Thank you so much. I’m really looking forward to seeing you at Tara’s wedding. I really can’t recommend you highly enough.”
“Shane has performed for me at two separate family gatherings and he was outstanding on both occasions. The parties were in different houses. Both homes are situated in rural Co Waterford at the end of long narrow country lanes but Shane had no problem finding us. I have booked him for the arrivals reception at the hotel for our daughter’s up-coming wedding. My family and friends now expect Shane to provide my party entertainment and they thoroughly enjoy every show. Exceptional entertainment.”
