Shenanigans, Alan and Steve were fantastic. Everyone at our party thoroughly enjoyed their outstanding performance. They are excellent musicians and Alan has a super voice for Irish songs, both soft and strong. Steve's fiddle playing was superb and complemented Alan's voice and guitar. They were happy to play requests from the audience and had a great interaction with the audience. We would definitely book them again as would most of the people present. As someone who goes to a lot of live music events I was really impressed. Book Shenanigans for a great night of entertainment, we all had a wonderful evening, thank ...

This trio of likeminded musicians formed in early 2017, and have already made their mark with their upcoming group. Coming from projects of their own (TEYR, Crossharbour, Céilí Max), Tad Sargent (GUITAR, BOUZOUKI, BODHRAN, VOCALS), James Gavin (FIDDLE, GUITAR) and Dominic Henderson (UILLEANN PIPES, WHISTLES, VOCALS) blend their intrigue with new sounds with the old styles of the music they grew up with.
Born in London, Tad, James and Dominic having grown up playing on the session circuit as accomplished musicians in their own right, and also having taught extensively in their fields, now turn their heads towards hitting stages at events around the country with a new, exciting, and vibrant sound.
Their music has been described as "Ear Candy For The Gods" by Bill Barclay (Director Music at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and Guardian Columnist).

Outdoor pool party/live music and cocktails for 60th birthday. Would like two members of staff to help serve drinks and cocktails and clear empty glasses so that we don't spend all our time doing it and can enjoy it all.

We are a non profit student let society who are holding a leavers ball.
We are looking for some background singing/music while we eat the 3 course meal.
The event is being held at:
It would be from about 8pm - 9.30pm.
Due to the fact we are a non profit organisation we only have a budget of around £200.
It is a Charity event at a church hall. First half of the evening their will be prize Bingo about 6/7 games and then we are wanting to go "Back to the 60's" with a singer, but music can be also from 50's and 70's.
If I can obtain a great quote I am getting married next year on 23rd July in Leicester so could also be looking for a singer for that.
I can't praise this band highly enough: they are professional, skilled, prompt and reliable.
However, they need to use a different caller for their ceilidh gigs. She was dour, negative and patronising. Some people found this amusing but I didn't. I found myself on edge about what she would say next. Disappointing when I wanted a light-hearted celebration.
PTA Ceilidh, 17th March
"Just wanted to say thanks again for Friday night, everyone had such a great time, the music & dancing was fantastic and the caller made it so easy for everyone to join in, was definitely a night to remember! Thanks again and will be in touch for our next ceilidh!"
Wedding, Truro, 3rd September
"just wanted to say thank you so much to you and the rest of the band for making our wedding so much fun, lots of our guests had never been to a ceilidh before and they absolutely loved it! Many Thanks again, Tammy and Owen."
"That was brilliant. Thank you so much. Everyone said it was the best time they had all weekend. We will all be recommending you to everyone we know. You guys were superb and generated such a good atmosphere - old and young alike had an evening to remember."
