Welcome to The Gospel Project, home of celebratory music! We’re glad you’ve found us. If you’re searching for a first-rate professional gospel ensemble for a wedding, retirement, celebration, function or indeed any occasion that calls for joyful music, then look no further.
We’re based in Dublin, but travel wherever the music demands. Our remit includes everything from raising the roof at festivals and writing our own original material in the gospel genre, to providing top-quality gospel music for wedding ceremonies, functions, and corporate events. One of this country’s finest vocal harmony groups, we are guaranteed to make any occasion unforgettable.
Boasting experience, outstanding musicianship, and an unmistakable passion for the music we perform, The Gospel Project have been raising roofs around Ireland since 2004. In addition to singing at weddings, we have considerable experience recording, and performing at functions and corporate events in venues such as the National Concert Hall, Phoenix Park,The Sugar Club, Crawdaddy, The Button Factory, Dunamaise Arts Centre, the Axis Centre and The RDS.
Hard to believe it’s been more than a year. Of weddings postponed, and postponed again. Of festivals and Christmas events that didn’t happen. Like almost every other business in Ireland, and in the arts in particular, we’ve been forced to dramatically scale back our operations as the country takes ever more drastic measures to halt the spread of COVID-19. No Christmas gigs, a handful of wedding celebrations in the past few months; with restrictions occasionally being lifted, only to be tightened again, there’s been very little roof raising happening lately:-(
We’re normally in full wedding-season swing by now, and contemplating a busy summer. We’d all hoped that 2020’s cancelled wedding season was a once-in-a-lifetime event, yet unfortunately current restrictions on weddings are actually more limiting than this time last year. But, while it’s too early to crack open the champagne just yet, the most recent government announcement on a tentative easing of restrictions seems to offer some hope of a future that could include the return of ‘normal’ Irish weddings.
In our latest video, we talk about ‘wedding withdrawal’ and the impact of lockdown on professional musicians.
Another glimmer of hope is that couples are clearly looking to the future, with new weddings bookings keeping us busier than ever. While we await a return to singing our hearts out at celebrations, we’re busy on the administration side, supporting couples who’ve had to make the difficult decision to reschedule their wedding celebration, as well as those who are now looking at music options for ceremonies this year and next. We’re flexible, we’re here to help and we’re all in this together. Any questions at all, please do get in touch. In the meantime, take care of yourselves, and stay safe.

‘On the Outside is well worth checking out. Superb soul vocals…. funky guitar…. uplifting ensemble singing. ‘Something so Wonderful’ (the Eleanor McEvoy co-write with Henry Priestman) here truly blossoms into a delicious example of the genre’
