Victoria Square

GIG – 10th of December Victoria Square Belfast
On the 10th of December we preformed at a fantastic gig located in the heart of Belfast in the very popular Victoria square! The shopping centre was filled with very excited Christmas shoppers and some last minute people rushing to get things done! We started the gig with a flash mob, starting off with one single trumpet player and then surprising the crowds in Victoria square with our full eight piece big band sound! As we started in to our first song large crowds gathered around the massive Christmas tree where underneath we were placed on stage, the atmosphere was fantastic and we wanted to get the whole centre in the mood for Christmas! We started the set of with Michael Bubles version of Jingle bells which was fantastic to get people dancing along and in the Christmas spirit! We then wanted to do something very different and broke into Proud Mary a rock version with the 3 part brass in harmony! We created a fantastic sound and really ended up turning what was a busy shopping centre into a concert venue! The crowds started to increase when we played this very famous song and it was time to get them partying so Conor left the stage and got down into the crowd to get them dance and sing a long! It was fantastic! To continue our performance we did some more Christmas classics that people could sing along to such as the very famous shaky song ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ which got the whole place singing along and really in the Christmas spirit. Since the shopping centre was buzzing with excited shoppers who were now in the mood to have a great time and forget about all that last minute stress, we decided to do more classic wedding band floor fillers performing classics such as Galway Girl , Rockin all over the world and Valerie. It was a fantastic day and we also managed to raise some money for a local charity, it was also lovely to see some of our future wedding couples in the audience really enjoying themselves. To finish of this fantastic event we decided to end the gig with save the last dance for me and then finally the fantastic golden oldie New York New York! We thank everyone who was able to come down to the event and especially Victoria square for letting us perform in such a brilliant venue!

A fantastic 5 star review from a recent Wedding!

We received this fantastic review from Mr and Mrs Mc Crossin after playing at there wedding it was a fantastic day and they were all great dancers and clearly enjoyed our music! The review is below!


‘We hired Conor and his band the Phat Katz for our wedding last month. It has been over 6 weeks since our special day, however the euphoria has yet to die down, which in large part is due to the truly magical atmosphere that was created by Conor and the band. Myself and Susan just wanted to put on record just how delighted and impressed we were- we genuinely don’t think we could speak higher of their professionalism, talent and enthusiasm, all of which contributed to a day that we will never forget for all the right reasons. For weeks after the wedding, we were inundated with letters and messages from guests expressing their unmitigated glee at how much they enjoyed the day, pinpointing the swing entertainment as their ultimate highlight. We felt as though we had been transported back to the 20’s/30’s, to an event much more grand than we had anticipated our wedding to be! The day was truly perfect, and I don’t just mean that as a cliché! Conor is an absolute gem of a talent- he just oozes everything you ask for in an entertainer; confidence, charisma, outstanding vocal range and tone, all of which are transcended by an endearing sense of humility. He is a phenomenal performer and I would recommend him to anybody.

Sincerely, we want to thank Conor and the band for providing such an unforgettable experience. The memories will last a lifetime- What an evening it was!’
