What event planners say about our suppliers


we all thought you were fantastic and we hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we all did, we have certainly found the best band in South West. ​ Charles, Exeter Students Caledonion Society


Quite simply THE BEST ceilidh band! We saw these guys at the Lincoln Steampunk Asylum last year and loved them so much we had to have them for our Steampunk wedding. They were just amazing, the look of happiness of our guests faces as they danced and the number of people who are still talking about the band says it all. And, I might add, the whole whole band is really nice, a genuinely great bunch of people as well as being fantastic musicians and incredibly entertaining. There aren't enough superlatives! Highly recommended (now we just need to find an excuse to celebrate something else so we can see you again!)


Awesome set at the Causeway Foot this afternoon guys! Thank you for the great music! Me and my family loved it and we will definitely be keeping an eye out for when you're back in the area! ☘️
