BLACK VELVET BAND - Ceilidh, Irish & Hoedown
Recent review: Thank you so much for being able to accommodate us on the wedding of my son! What with atrocious weather causing extensive flooding that weekend and having to postpone the wedding from the Saturday night until the Sunday, we were more than grateful that the band was still willing and able to perform on the Sunday. Great music and excellent calling made the evening, with all participants thoroughly enjoying themselves - sometimes with a little over enthusiasm! I highly recommend this band to any future clients booking. The band were more than helpful - especially Jennie with all my questions and the band on the day were superb. All good wishes, Phyllis Steele

Recent review: It was a difficult and emotional day, but I could not have been more impressed with the performance. Absolutely beautiful
Spill The Whisky Ceilidh Band
Recent review: A fantastic band with so much patience! We ended up having a couple adjustments to the schedule we were going to follow, plus an unexpected delay to the actual start of the music playing, but Spill the Whiskey were really good at going with the flow. They managed to get almost all the guests off their chairs -- the only ones who didn't get up were those who couldn't, and made dancing fun for everyone involved. We had actual people who knew how to dance, people who had no clue, and people who shouldn't be allowed on a dancefloor (me) but somehow the band played songs that worked for all of us and the amount of fun we had just cannot be put into words. Also, they ended their set beautifully, giving us a chance to go round all our guests and exchange a few words and a hug, which meant the world to me. Fantastic band, I very much recommend them!
Shenanigans Irish Music Duo
Recent review: Fantastic duo, had an amazing new year's both were very friendly and professional will definitely be booking them again in the future.
Recent review: "Very good. Only 4 musicians and a caller turned up but was fine. Could have done with some incidental music during dancers' rest breaks perhaps, but overall an excellent evening. The caller was particularly friendly and approachable and yet was still managing to get people to listen and dance, despite temperatures in the high 20s ! Thank you for your help."
Pipley Barn Dance and Ceilidh Band
Recent review: My partner Becky organised Pipley Dance and Ceilidh Band for my surprise 30th birthday party and I cannot recommend them highly enough! We had such a brilliant time and the band really made it the perfect celebration. As a group we were mixed abilities and ages, but everyone got involved at some point and we have had so many wonderful comments from guests about how much they enjoyed it! Rachel and the band were so friendly and such talented musicians. Their caller is excellent, offering really clear instructions and was great at making people feel welcome. I have been to a number of ceilidhs over the last few years and I definitely think that they are the best band I have seen. I just hope that we can go to see them again soon! Thanks to the band for being part of the celebration and making so many wonderful memories. Rob

Recent review: Blag played a Ceilidh for my 50th Birthday party on Saturday. We had a fantastic time and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The calling was very clear and the music brilliantly played. I specifically wanted an event where young and old, keen and not so keen dancers would all participate and that was achieved to the enjoyment of everyone. Thank you so much. The communication before the event was clear and helpful - David answering all sorts of detailed questions that I had. I can thoroughly recommend Blag to ensure a great event.

Band Baja UK
Recent review: If it is the performance of Band Baja UK, be absolutely sure about the delight it will create. It is not ordinary band. It’s awesomely creative and magnificently impactful. Its music and sounds don’t leave your ears even after few hours of performance. The notes are accurate and ringing continuously once you are on the dance floor. What a delight!

Mia and the moon
Recent review: """Mia and the Moon created a fantastic atmosphere at our 2017 New Year’s Eve event. They played different music accordingly, mimicking the reaction of the crowd, meaning everyone was up and dancing all night, just as we had hoped for. The band went above and beyond our expectations; during a meeting with Laura I happened to mention a few of our pre-booked guests had a real love for ABBA, to which Laura told me they didn’t cover ABBA but were willing to learn some just for us, and sure enough they did, and it was fabulous. The band also left us one of their CD’s with their original songs on them which we have played since in the pub and have had many people ask about the music. Over all, we were super grateful and impressed with Mia and the Moon, they created an amazing atmosphere that we couldn’t have achieved without them and made this New Year’s one of the Hotels most successful yet. We have had numerous customers thank us for such a great evening and a huge part of that was down to be band being as wonderful as they were. I would recommend Mia and the Moon to anyone looking for a unique cover band with an amazing style or for their even own music which is also fantastic, to create a great party atmosphere."""

Harbottle and Jonas
Recent review: My Wife and I wanted to leave a review to say how incredibly this duo are. We utterly adored them and they made the evening so special. Everyone who came could tell how much passion they have for your craft and it really showed. There were no issues on the day, no problems with learning our requests and they even managed to put up with our drunken families - all with a smile on their faces. Even if you don't think you like folk music now, you will after hearing them. In summary: Brilliant.
