Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a ceilidh band in Essex cost?

Depending on the event, a ceilidh band in Essex can be hired for between £750 and £1265. Nevertheless, there isn't a standard rate for all ceilidh bands in Essex because the cost is based on the band's size and travel costs. Therefore, to find out the exact pricing, kindly check the supplier's profile. When you enter the details of your event on Poptop's website, you can compare costs and receive an instant quote.

Does a ceilidh band in Essex provide background music between sets?

Typically, the bands would play background music between their performances. In most cases, they use their laptop or a music player. You can choose the songs you want the band to play in the background music, but this must be discussed during the booking process. Acoustic sets are mostly played as background music during drink receptions and other similar events. The background music will be a slow song your guests can listen to.

When will a band start its performance?

A ceilidh typically takes place at the conclusion of an event or during the wedding reception's nighttime festivities. A ceilidh is a fantastic way to get everyone in the room dancing, including those who wouldn't normally do so! A competent ceilidh caller will ensure that everyone knows the proper technique for each dance. It makes sense to schedule the band's performance for the evening's finale, just before your guests are about to leave for home. Please, feel free to contact the supplier to get the information directly.
