Go and see them, nicely tell them they are disturbing you. Tell them they can do one of two things, keep the noise down or invite you to join in. See what they say! Can't hurt!

This is what the police are for, call them, and tell them they're welcome to park in your driveway if they want. Once your neighbor gets a ticket or two for peace disturbance, he'll chill out.
I have had neighbor(s) from hell in my area more than once, and more than one at a time. I used to go knock on the door, but I finally figured out if they really cared what I, or their other neighbors thought, they wouldn't have done it to start with.
They start caring when the police show up.

I agree with the above poster, maybe they don't know how much noise they are making, especially as noise carries more when everyone else is asleep and quiet.
There are laws against 'noisy neighbours' though one does have to have a bit of give and take.
With the old couple on the other side, not much you can do about that.
Have you thought of investing in a good set of soft and squishy ear plugs? Or headphones that exclude all outside noise, that way you can even listen to a 'bed time story' to get to sleep

I agree with Klassified. I've confronted neighbors before about their lack of respect for their fellow neighbors and it does not usually end well. They often get worse and in worse case, it ends in a scuffle and everyone getting arrested. Call the police. I'm sure your city has a sound ordinance in place. Find out what time it starts and call the police. Once they get a few tickets they'll get the picture that their neighbors don't enjoy their lack of musical talent at all hours of the night.
I don't think they'd accept me, even though they are nice people.
