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.
Finally, some good news! After more than a year of weddings postponed, and postponed again. Of festivals and Christmas events that didn’t happen. We’re normally in full wedding-season swing right now, but this year we’d almost resigned ourselves to a cancelled wedding session similar to 2020, when a recent government announcement revealed a much more generous relaxation of restrictions than we’d dared to hope for. It’s not quite business as usual, but we’re getting there, and we’ve been delighted to be able to return to celebrating with you, raising the roof once more at weddings and celebrations throughout Ireland.
In our latest video, we talk about ‘wedding withdrawal’ and the impact that lockdown had on professional musicians.
Also in August, members of The Gospel Project have been participating in the show Better Normal, a concept concert based around skiffle music with featured artists Eleanor McEvoy, Jess Kavanagh and Pauline Scanlon + 8-piece band and gospel choir (that’s where we come in!) We had an absolute blast rehearsing and filming at O Reilly Theatre, Dublin, last week, and the show will be available to stream from August 27th.
Even throughout the lockdowns, we took hope from the fact that couples were clearly looking to the future, with new weddings bookings keeping us busier than ever. We’ve been 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’
