A lively folk/gypsy/ceilidh band, tunes from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, America and England. We are available for performing concerts, barn dances or ceilidhs at pubs, festivals, weddings, birthdays, BBQ's or any other parties!
We perform a range of music (both songs and tunes) from a broadly Irish repertoire although we also perform Scottish, Welsh, English, American or Cape Breton tunes.
The music can be fast and exciting - great for stomping your feet - or slow and relaxing - great for chilling between the stomping!
We can cater for Scottish 'flavored' Ceilidhs, although for most Barn Dance/ Ceilidhs we would keep it mixed to allow dancers of all experience levels to enjoy themselves.
Our aim is to 'entertain, not educate', it should be fun after all!

The first Blue Commotion gig in February 2012 was a culmination of a ten-year musical partnership between Zoe Schwarz and guitarist Rob Koral. Through their intense musical journey and compatible desire, they developed a perfect collaboration and empathy, which, when analysed, comes from two completely different starting points. Because of this melting pot of musical diversity, there is a depth and uniqueness to the band's music which is hard to pigeon-hole and categorise.
Into the mix comes the sheer virtuosity of each of the band members who are allowed the freedom to express their musical authority, and stamp their own personal magic to the song writing of Zoe and Rob. A testament to this chemistry is the sheer volume of music coming out of the band, and 'Exposed' will be Blue Commotion's third album in two years.
Zoe's unique, yearning vocal style is blended with Rob's ability to come up with catchy vibrant riffs and musical arran...

What people say about Avon Function & Wedding Bands:
My 40th Birthday could not have been celebrated in a better way. How perfect things were, a summer garden party, guests having pimms in their hands, and Annika with her band and their great talent was certainly the cherry on top of the cake. She has a great voice that is delightful, impressive, and made the party rocking. The entire band is very professional, arrived and set up things right on time. The tracks they played, including the special requests, were perfect and fit the atmosphere beautifully. We are delighted having taken the right decision by selecting this band, and making our special event more special, Thanks a lot Annika!
