BLACK VELVET BAND - Ceilidh, Irish & Hoedown

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

Wraggle Taggle are a professional award-winning and talented band with many years of experience, all the musicians have been performing, touring and recording for many years. We are flexible enough as regards personnel, instrumentation and musical style to be able to tailor a band to your specific requirements. Award winning musicians Eugene Teevan (accordion), and Mick O'Connor (tenor banjo) form the "core" of the band with bandleader Mick Bailey (guitar/vocals). Add additional instruments below We will bring all necessary instruments and equipment and travel is included. All we need is a couple of normal 3 pin plug sockets and chairs without arms.

Ceilidh Band - 2 X 50 Minutes

Verified bookings: 50
Thanks so much for your enquiry. We would be delighted to play for your event. We are able to teach well-known dances and we can play a mix of Barn Dances and other celtic songs for guests to dance to. 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! We also play a variety of songs from around the globe for your guests to dance or relax to, between the Ceilidh dances. We have our own lighting and sound system which you are welcome to use to play your own music around our live set. We arrive one hour before our performance to set up our instruments, PA system and lighting. We then play two 50 minute sets with a short interval. We look forward to hearing from you.

Recent review: The band were great and everyone had a good time joining in with the dancing. I was told that the caller was “dry as the Aticama desert” but unfortunately a few of my guests and myself included felt he came across as a little rude on occasions. Also I know it’s traditional that men dance with women but I have quite a few male friends in same sex relationships and there were a couple of occasions where this wasn’t taken into consideration. Maybe just referring to partners 1 and 2 would have been more inclusive for a less traditional crowd. However, the music was great and the callers direction and instruction was very clear. He made the dances easily understood for people of all ages and abilities so we didn’t get in to many tangles. Communication with Mike before the party was great and they all arrived in plenty of time to set up without any problems. It was a great night and I really enjoyed my first ever Barn Dance!

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."

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
