What event planners say about our suppliers


We hired Mike for our son and daughter in laws wedding celebration on New Year's Eve. From the initial contact to the night of the event, Mike was always easy to contact which meant the evening was really easy to organise. Mike was immaculately turned out and his pipe playing first class. He played a large selection of tunes and to top it all he piped the bride and groom into the main hall which was truly fantastic. Mike stayed on to have photo after photo taken with all the guests. A real gentleman. I would highly recommend Mike to play at any given function. Thanks for making a great night even more special. (10 / 10) Pete cawley


Great night, great performance Steve & Fiona. Every one has said how good the music was from Jump the Q. Thank you for making the night so special. Paul & Dee.


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.
