A lively folk/gypsy/ceilidh band with tunes from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, America and England.
We are available for performing concerts, barn dances (or ceilidhs) at pubs, festivals, weddings, birthdays, BBQ's or any other party!
We perform a range of music (both songs and tunes) from a broad repertoire and era from traditional folk to 70's and 80's rock!
We can cater for Scottish 'flavoured' Ceilidhs, although for most Barn Dance/ Ceilidhs we would keep it mixed to allow dancers of all experience levels to enjoy themselves.
Our aim is to 'entertain, not educate', it should be fun after all!

We booked DDFK Oktoberfest Party Band for a recent corporate event held on a boat on the Thames, so a challenging venue but DDFK were great. As an Austrian Company we were looking for an Austrian feel and were delighted with the selection of oompah music. The band were excellent and really nice people to deal with, we would highly recommend them.
James and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of Kelly's Heroes for such an amazing evening. Everyone absolutely loved your ceilidh and it was so much fun. We'll definitely be recommending you! Many thanks again, Zoe & James
