Dave Martin & The Casino Cats

It’s hard to compare Dave Martin to anyone, but waiter, if you please.. “Two shots of Italian Dean Martin croon, a slice of Frank Sinatra swing, blend that together with a healthy dash of Buble and you have it”!


Booking Info

One of the finest swing voices to emerge on Northern Ireland’s music scene, Dave’s deep, velvety vocal styling has been shaped by all the great singers of swing.


Dave Martin’s swing band, The Casino Cats, boasts the finest swing & jazz musicians around, with piano, saxophone, trumpet, double bass and drums. They blend a vast repertoire of the swing classics from Frank Sinatra to Michael Bublé with many modern songs in their unique swing style. Their energetic floor show and swingin’ rhythms have been featured at many corporate events and weddings over the years throughout Ireland and the UK.

As Dave reaches the tender age of 30, he looks to the words of Dean Martin to sum up how he feels about his well seasoned music career: “I’m just getting started, Frank”!

Just wanted to email you and the band to say a big thank you for performing at our wedding reception in the Culloden. I cannot tell you how pleased I was and Glen loved it too, which was great. Despite the rain in the afternoon you managed to keep the party going! Since the wedding we have had many wonderful comments about the music and I have passed on the name of your band and Entertainment Ideas. Thank you again and we will bear you in mind for future special occasions

We booked Dave to provide the entertainment for our Lady Captain's night. It was a major success especially due to Dave's rapport and interaction with his audience - he had them all joining in the fun in no time. Some people are still talking about the night! We met beforehand and having described the different age profiles etc I left the choice of music to Dave. He did a perfect job and was very professional in every way
