Hopefully some day you will do a tour of Student Unions, come play here in Maynooth? Stall up sometime!

Also, you should get an official Facebook. Me and my friends thought that one was real, obviously isn't but. Awh man, get with the times Crystal Swing! Sure wasn't it the internet made you famous.

C. Brennan

I was blown away by "He Drinks Tequila". It's been too long since an Irish showband with such raw charisma has appeared on the scene. You guys are going to change everything.

Brilliant band, blown me away. I hope you stall to Donegal soon, me and my brother Charles are hooked! Yeah?

Come on up north, your music is more addictive than a bottle of Football Special and a proper blast from the past, first class.

I've been doing the Hucklebook all over the town.

M. Greene

Congrats all. How do you keep your feet on the ground? Have absolutely nothing done these days what with facebooking, twittering and you tubing. Life will never be the same again. Enjoy every moment.

Can't wait to get my album

P. Molloy

I just want to say that we LOVE you and was wondering if you do weddings as we plan on getting married and don't think we could go ahead unless you played at our wedding. WE LOVE YOU - AAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH.

Darragh and Elaine

I think you are great. My sister is a nurse and she listens to your music in the ward during her night shift. She said to tell you guys that you are great also. My mother and father think your great also.

M. Lyons

On behalf of the Peoples Republic of Cork we all think you are really FAB x


I LOVE YOU DEREK..... Ill talk dirty to you in spanish anytime you want...


Hi Crystal Swing,

I just wanted to say, you guys rock. Me and the lads in our house near UCC listen to your downloaded cd every night. Its great way to get pumped up before we bust a move on the dancefloors of Cork city. Are ye going to perform in Kerry anytime soon? Is Dervla single???

Davy Mac

I saw the Beatles play in the Cavern Club, Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, Bob Dylan go electric at the Newport Folk Festival, and Nirvana in Sir Henrys.

I can honestly say that Crystal Swing blow the lot of them out of the water. Derek is going to be the biggest star in the world.

Hi Crystal Swing,

have you ever been to Dublin? I'd love to see a show. Great movers , dynamite stuff. Even my Granny loves you and she is from Finland.



Really like Crystal Swing. Great to see young people doing country music.

J. Hegarty

Im getting used to listening to your great CDs. They are playing in our house all the time. Nana and granda love ye. Looking forward to going to your gigs when I'm older.   Love from your youngest fan,

R. McCarthy

Hi guys,

I just wanted to say how much i enjoy your music. It's so refreshing to hear a genuine Irish artist once again. Thank you for reviving the Irish music scene!!!!

p.s. Tell Derek he has a lovely face.

A. Lennon

My brother got me the CD for my birthday last month, and I cant stop playing it around the house. Its one of these cds that you just cant get tired of. Well done Crystal Swing.

A. Murphy

I just love 'he drinks tequila'. We have it playing in the office all the time. Love the music. Its so refreshing. Keep up the good work. I must definitely go to a performance some night soon.

N. McCoy

Howayee lads.

Just been listening to "he drinks tequila". I have it on repeat in the shop. Reminds me of me self.

Keep up the good work. 


I am working in Saudi Arabia at the moment and am listening to the CD's on my cd player. Great to get a touch of home so far away.

I had Crystal swing at my 40th birthday party. Everybody was dancing and having a great night. What makes a party is people out enjoying themselves and Crysal Swing is your band. Can't wait for another party.

Best wishes to you all.

Mary Louise Mulcahy

Hi there,

I love He Drinks Tequila!


Glad to see you are keeping well and doing the Irish proud around the world. Is an international tour on the plans? We would love to see ye down under.

Orla and Eilis, New Zealand

I just want to say what a delight your music is. Nothing out these days captures the vibe you all can so easily create. I just want to say what an energetic and incredible voice Dervla has and such a fun attitude derek holds, it really does truly take me back, cheers again.

E Gein  

I am a huge U2, Arcade Fire, Muse and Dicky Rock fan but I must say there is something about your music and the overall performance that is compelling. Great to see gool old fashioned music making a comeback.

M. O'Brien

I dont really know how to explain it but i really lov your music. She drinks tequila is up there in one of my fav tracks of the year.

Best wishes


Well done Crystal Swing, ye were fab. Best of luck in 2010.

Norann, Margaret, and Pat

Just listened to the whole album and i rock and rolled my way about my day. Absolutely fab.
