A Dubai-based quartet, consisting of internationally experienced players from the UK and New Zealand. The MapleJacks have earned a reputation as the Middle East’s premier party band. The band members met in Dubai, growing with the city and learning what it’s audience expects.

For the last decade, The MapleJacks have been bringing their versions of pop, rock, indie classics and contemporary anthems to Dubai’s revelers, to a wider audience in the UAE, Middle East and overseas.

From their laidback, harmony-rich acoustic sets to riotous party favourites at private parties, weddings and sporting events, The MapleJacks have proved themselves to be a versatile and exciting live band. Recognition has come in the form of being invited to play prestigious awards shows and high-profile events. The MapleJacks were named in 2012 as Best Music Act in Dubai in the Ahlan! Awards.

Whether playing to 5 or to 5,000 people and they have successfully performed for both! The energy of The MapleJacks is infectious and 100% live, just the sound of four talented musicians guys and no backing tracks. The band enjoys long-term residencies at The Irish Village Dubai on Thursday nights (as an acoustic trio) and as the full electric quartet at McGettigan’s JLT Dubai on Friday afternoons.

Notable events they have performed at are:

  • The Race to Dubai (post golf concerts).
  • Taste of Dubai.
  • Taste of Abu Dhabi.
  • Emirates Pilots Club Ball, Dubai.

Acoustic Bands & Entertainment

Acoustic Bands and Entertainment.

Sometimes you don’t want a full scale party band yet you want to set the mood and create a nice ambiance for the evening. There is no better way to do this than with some live acoustic bands performing laid back relaxing music, particularly early in the early evening. As the evening progresses the performers will raise the tempo as required. They will mix and mingle or just stay in one desired location or on stage.

This type of entertainment can be lighter on your budget than a full scale band bringing a full band with five or six musicians, sound system, lighting system etc. It can release some of your budget for other areas like other mix and mingle walkabout entertainers, although we never recommend cutting back on the entertainment as this is the life and soul of any party. Nobody remembers the food or the decor. The entertainment will be remembered as they set the mood for the evening and enhance your guests memories.

We have acoustic performers that will work as a duo on guitars or even pianos, duelling pianos to be precise, as seen in Las Vegas many times. Hear the hits from a two piece acoustic band performing The Eagles, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Oasis, Ocean Colour Scene, Crash Test Dummies, Bryan Adams, Extreme, Hozier, Rod Stewart, Prince, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, The Beatles and many more. Later in the evening the tempo is raised with sing a long hits and a finale to leave everyone singing a hit like Hey Jude or Day We Caught The Train.

In the right environment and the correct setting, there is no better entertainment. It works in a rustic setting, on the beach or in a cozy room with attitude. It is possible to have this type of entertainment in a hotel ball room with sound system, it works but this is where we recommend using sound system, lighting and a full scale party band similar to Bogus Brothers, Dov Amiel Orchestra or MapleJacks.

Paddyman – Irish Party Entertainment

Paddymn, a full time entertainer (from Ireland) based in Dubai, UAE. Paddyman performs a mix of high energy music (vocals, guitar & harmonica) and comedy (jokes, stories and funny songs). He has shared the same stage as other notable Irish acts such as The Saw Doctors, Sharon Corr and Sharron Shannon.

The name PADDYMAN came about as a result of wanting to perform some funny jokes / stories and songs as part of his act. He wanted to visually differentiate this from the singalong / Irish & high energy dance songs he performs. Paddyman was also conscious of ways he could reduce the risk of possibly unintentionally offending people in the audience (esp. in UAE) with some of the songs. Therefore, he started wearing a leprechaun hat & beard for these parts of the act. This immediately became very popular as people could clearly see that he was about to perform some funny material and they listened! The original (and some cover) comedy jokes and parodies that he has performed have since become his trademark and Paddyman continues to grow that part of the show.

He performs weekly at the largest bar in the Middle East (Barasti), the #1 Real Irish Bar (Fibber Magees) and #1 Irish Bar in Abu Dhabi (PJ O’Reilly’s). Besides these he regularly performs for weddings, corporate events, private parties, festivals & in Irish bars all over the world, (From Hong Kong & Bahrain to Ireland & Canada)

A story from Paddyman.

I’m often asked how I ended up in Dubai, playing funny songs and Irish music in bars and at weddings etc. Here’s my story in brief:

I started playing guitar when I was about 15, inspired by my father’s love of music and his accordion playing. After about 6 months of practicing at home, Dad came home one night and announced that we had our first gig in the local pub – The BELLYARD in Monasterevin, Co Kildare – as the group that was supposed to play had cancelled! On the night we turned up in matching shirts and set up some speakers he’d rented.

I played very basic chords on the keyboard & guitar and my Dad did all the singing, accordion playing and entertaining out front. It wasn’t long before the pub started to empty! After about an hour, the only people who stayed in the place were the local travellers because they knew they wouldn’t be served anywhere else.

Despite this, there was one drunk fella who stood up to leave and loundly announced to the bar “These are the worst piece of shite band that I’ve heard in all me jaysus life!” My Dad just laughed it off and winked at me as if this was normal behaviour to be learned from. He later said “When something like that happens you have to remember – Don’t Stop Playing No Matter What Happens! Even if the tinker started a fight you just keep going.”

Undeterred by the lack of appreciation for our craft, he then orgainised a regular gig in the HARP BAR in Kildare town. This one was just a sit down, unplugged session beside the open fire. He said the reason we’d been booed in Monasterevin was because of the equipment, so we’d better build up a bit of confidence playing without mikes first before we re-launch the act. And so we did! I sang my first song (Sonny Don’t Go Away) with my Grandad & Dad beside the fire as the ladies in the pub threatened to punch anyone who kept talking while the young lad had a go. I’ve been playing ever since!

One of the songs I learned around then (nearly 20 yrs ago!) was the great song by Shane McGowan of the Pogues – Fairytale of New York see link below for a performance of this on MBC plus several other videos.

Paddyman – Fairytale of New York

Since then I have had the pleasure of playing music all around the world including North America (I was based in Canada for 6 years), Europe (Ireland, France, Italy), Asia (UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Hong Kong etc). These gigs vary from small intimate gigs for a few kids in the desert (or at fibbers for Xmas) to larger gigs for thousands of people Festivals or alongside well known Irish performers like the Saw Doctors, Sharon Corr, The Commitments, The Wolfe Tones, Aslan, Damien Dempsey, Ardal O’Hanlon (comedian), Sharon Shannon etc. Music is a great gift and I hope to continue singing, joking and playing music for many years to come!
