Triple Scotch Ceilidh Band

Triple Scotch Ceilidh Band With Dance Caller - Up To 3 Hours

Verified bookings: 6
The UK's finest ceilidh band available for weddings and private events. Breathtaking musical talent; clear, patient and cheerful dance calling; an excellent atmosphere full of energy; fifteen years' experience as a band, meaning we can always 'read the room' and make it work perfectly for you and your guests. We are always happy to fit in with your existing timings - we usually find that two 'sets' of dancing each lasting between 45 and 90 minutes will work well for any event, so we would usually play anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours in total. We will work with you to make the right plan for your event. Unlike many bands on the circuit we only use a small pool of very talented musicians, and only commit to bookings where we can guarantee you'll have 'the A team.' So rest assured you'll be in safe hands whether you are a ceilidh novice or expert, and the sheer quality of the playing and calling is unrivalled.

Recent review: It was my son's 30th birthday party and the band were excellent. They arrived on time and set up very quickly. They pitched their dances to the ability of our dancers and the caller was really patient and godd humoured. I would recommend Berking Mad Ceilidh Band very highly.

Recent review: "Shenanigans played at my fathers wake recently and their music truly was a tribute for a proud Irishman.The music they played was extremely fitting but made what could have been a solemn occasion, a time to smile. Communication from Alan was excellent from the first email and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. As a side note, I was wondering if you could remember which song you were playing as people first came into the venue (I think It had Galway in the words / title). Quite a few people have asked me what it was called but we weren't there a that point. Thank you for everything, Regards,"

Recent review: Torres and Butler aka Mike and Leo are fabulous! From the moment I contacted them through Poptop they worked with us to make Nick's 50th birthday party a real success. They tailored their sets to our preferences and even learnt a couple of new songs. Communication with them was really easy and they arrived on the night all set to go. The party was organised chaos and Mike and Leo joined in with gusto, dealing with giddy six year olds, heckling teens and 40 somethings behaving badly. It was ace and in the last week's recounting of the night all our friends have said how good they were. We would whole heartedly recommend them and need to find another excuse for a good shindig that they can play at!
