BLACK VELVET BAND - Ceilidh, Irish & Hoedown
(43)

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

Kingsfolk

Ceilidh Band For Parties

Verified bookings: 10
Kingsfolk goes out as a team of five; four musicians and a caller. Our lively music is ideal for Scottish ceilidhs and we have been bringing parties to life all over London for many years. A typical event for us starts when we play a few folk tunes to create an appropriate atmosphere. Then our caller (master of ceremonies) explains how a ceilidh works and he will call people onto the floor to start the first dance. We always start with a few easy dances, such as the Galopede or the OXO Reel and then, depending upon how many guests are experienced dancers, we may try more challenging dances. There are usually two sets of dances with a refreshment break in the middle. If the guests have their meal earlier, the break could be for cake cutting or for serving coffee. Each set of dancing is often an hour and a quarter long, but you may want to cut them down to one hour or even 45 minutes each. It all depends on your overall plan. At the end of the second set of dances, the caller will often try to get as many people as possible up onto the dance floor for a final dance, either a circle dance or Strip the Willow. Then the band will play a final instrumental piece which gives guests an opportunity for a bit of free dancing.

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: "If you're looking for a band who will transform a tent full of people having quiet drinks into a raging fury of dance laughter merriment and general good times then BLAG are the act you're looking for. We booked them for a green and event to raise money to fight greenbelt destruction nearby and they instantly communicated with everybody In the room (which ranged from early 20s to late 50s and 60s) the minute they started playing. A great repertoire of traditional favourites and interesting covers especially the doors' ""people are strange"" They're compact yet sound huge- and the great calling instructions had everybody laughing and smiling no matter how awful they were at dancing the Gay Gordon!. Sometimes this kind of ceilidh can be slow and boring when everybody doesn't really know what to do but the band made it all happen very quickly and very enjoyably . Did I mention they're nice guys as well?"

Recent review: We had a great experience from start to finish with these guys. Martin and I had a good chat through things over the phone in advance of our wedding to answer some of my questions and work out a few logistics and finer details. Martin was very reassuring and accommodating and followed up promptly with details as promised. On the big day, the band were fantastic. They got themselves set up and adapted without any trouble to a delayed start (our meal had overrun). The music sounded great and the calling was really clear and with just the right amount of explanations to get everyone dancing and more or less(!) doing the right things whilst still keeping things moving nicely. Nearly all our guests, young and old, ended up getting stuck in, which was great fun and made our day extra memorable for everyone. Highly recommended!
