Here are some recent reviews of the band's performance:- Here are some reviews of the band in action:- Black Velvet Folky Pop Duo – Wedding – April 6th, 2019 “A great bunch of lads who made our wedding reception swing. Their set was exactly what we wanted and set exactly the right atmosphere. They even let me take the mic for 2 songs. Which they probably regretted within seconds! A great choice for any kind of party.” Ben Hawkes Irish Night to celebrate St Patrick’s Day – Lawrence Weston Social Club – March 16th 2019 Well what can I say? Johnny and Jase are a great duo! They performed a super mix of Irish songs and tunes and had people up dancing all night. Would highly recommend. Karl Baxter Black Velvet Band Irish Duo – St Patrick’s Day at Westbury Conservative Club – March 17th 2019 What a great way to celebrate St Patrick’s day at our Cons club! The performance went amazingly well! The dance floor was full on a SUNDAY AFTERNOON?? I put that down to the guys who played songs and tunes with such an exciting beat that you just couldn’t stay still. The whole afternoon was huge fun. I highly recommend the band. Stephen Jones 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 Black Velvet Band Hoedown Duo – Wild West Garden Party – July 12th, 2018 “Mike and Jon pitched the performance perfectly for the Fleur de Lis Retirement Home’s garden party in Romsey. The American Country songs created just the right atmosphere to establish the Wild West theme. Everyone loved it – they joined in all the songs! Several residents have sent me messages to say how much they enjoyed the event. We were delighted with the performance and thoroughly recommend the band.” Rachael O'Keefe (Manager) Alice's Wild West Themed 60th Birthday Party – April 6th, 2018 "It was a superb C & W style party with fantastic musicians. Everyone - from kids to grannies - joined in the dancing and the whole event was great fun. If we have another party, we will definitely book Black Velvet Hoedown Band again. I have no hesitation in recommending them. It was an excellent bash." Darren Vine (Alice's husband) Paul’s 60th Birthday Hoedown Barn Dance – January 6th, 2018 " A big thanks to Mike and the rest of the band for a brilliant evening. Everyone has said how much they thoroughly enjoyed it. A special thank you to Alan, the dance caller. He did a great job – quite a comedian! Finally a big thanks to the band for welcoming our fiddle-playing friend Richard into their ranks for the evening. He said he had a fantastic time. What a great party band the guys make! I’m very happy to recommend them to anyone having a bash." Paul Campbell

Kingsfolk
(3)

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.

Recent review: Blag played a Ceilidh for my 50th Birthday party on Saturday. We had a fantastic time and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The calling was very clear and the music brilliantly played. I specifically wanted an event where young and old, keen and not so keen dancers would all participate and that was achieved to the enjoyment of everyone. Thank you so much. The communication before the event was clear and helpful - David answering all sorts of detailed questions that I had. I can thoroughly recommend Blag to ensure a great event.
