BLACK VELVET BAND CEILIDH TRIO

Verified bookings: 43
BLACK VELVET BAND CEILIDH TRIO provides two musicians (guitar/vocals or accordion & fiddle) + dance caller to perform 2 x 1 hour sets of ceilidh dancing in a 3 hour period. Watch the attached video of the band in action. Mike (fiddle), Jase (accordion) and Jon (guitar/vocals) are all featured. The price is based on the band arriving 1 hour before the 1st set is due to start. It takes 30 mins to set up the band's PA system. Background music will be played through the PA system for 30 mins before the 1st set and between the 1st and 2nd sets. Here are some recent reviews of the band's performance:- Suzanne’s 30th Wedding Anniversary Ceilidh – June 2019 We had a really great evening. The musicians were very friendly and accommodating. When some of our guests were late arriving because of the dreaded road closure and subsequent diversions, they adapted their sets to suit our timings and many non-dancers were encouraged to get up and shake a leg. Everyone said how much they enjoyed themselves and we would certainly recommend and use them again. Suzanne Guppy Emily’s Wedding Anniversary Ceilidh – June 2019 I just wanted to say how pleased and impressed we all were with Black Velvet's musicianship and all-round professionalism. We also especially enjoyed Alan’s introductions to the dances. He was great fun! Thanks so much for making our party just what we hoped it would be. Emily Trueman-Greinke Hannah and Deryk’s Ceilidh – February 2019 We absolutely loved having Black Velvet Band play our wedding ceilidh at Clearwell Castle. My husband is from Scotland so we wanted a traditional Scottish ceilidh feel with some of the classics, and we were not disappointed! We had a good feeling about Black Velvet band from the moment we booked them – and sure enough, Mike and the guys were absolutely fantastic and made our evening party a huge success. The band were great and the instructions on the ceilidh dances were so helpful; even those of our party who may not have normally danced were up there loving life on the dancefloor. The fun and friendly atmosphere they created was just fab and so different from your ‘usual’ evening do. All our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceilidh and some said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We would 100% book the band again and recommend them to friends. Thank you for contributing to the best day of both our lives. Hannah and Deryk Hunter

Thanks so much for your enquiry. We would be delighted to play for your event.

Our Barn Dances are based on a Scottish repertoire such as the Gay Gordons, Dashing White Sergeant and the Eight-some Reel, with occasional other countries represented. We have a great deal of experience teaching novices, and understand that it is more important that people have fun and keep dancing, than the dances are perfect!
