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.

The dances , pace, calling etc., were perfect in encouraging everyone, including some who never normally dance at all, as well as the children, to try it and to enjoy themselves. I would recommend you in future.
BLACK VELVET BAND - Ceilidh, Irish & Hoedown
Recent review: Thank you so much for being able to accommodate us on the wedding of my son! What with atrocious weather causing extensive flooding that weekend and having to postpone the wedding from the Saturday night until the Sunday, we were more than grateful that the band was still willing and able to perform on the Sunday. Great music and excellent calling made the evening, with all participants thoroughly enjoying themselves - sometimes with a little over enthusiasm! I highly recommend this band to any future clients booking. The band were more than helpful - especially Jennie with all my questions and the band on the day were superb. All good wishes, Phyllis Steele
Recent review: Thanks Steve for performing at our wedding. You were a hit with us and our guests who have commented positively since about your performance. Big thanks for letting us request a few songs not on your list. You really added a special touch to our day.

Spring Heeled Jacks
Recent review: Martin was very professional and his crew were very friendly and organised! The dances were unlike those I've done in other Ceilidhs so it was refreshing 'Really good idea' - Conference Delegate 'First time and that was so much fun!' - Another Conference Delegate
Recent review: We just wanted to send through a note to say thank you so much to you and the band. We honestly cannot thank you enough – without you and the band the reception could not have come together and music stood out as one of the things that made our wedding so much more personal. Additionally, thank you for being so responsive to our numerous emails and calls in the run up to the wedding – it gave me piece of mind and definitely helped the day run smoothly Please also pass our thanks on to the other musicians – we have had multiple messages from our guests commenting on how great the music was.

Spill The Whisky Ceilidh Band
Recent review: A fantastic band with so much patience! We ended up having a couple adjustments to the schedule we were going to follow, plus an unexpected delay to the actual start of the music playing, but Spill the Whiskey were really good at going with the flow. They managed to get almost all the guests off their chairs -- the only ones who didn't get up were those who couldn't, and made dancing fun for everyone involved. We had actual people who knew how to dance, people who had no clue, and people who shouldn't be allowed on a dancefloor (me) but somehow the band played songs that worked for all of us and the amount of fun we had just cannot be put into words. Also, they ended their set beautifully, giving us a chance to go round all our guests and exchange a few words and a hug, which meant the world to me. Fantastic band, I very much recommend them!
Recent review: "Great job, thanks! Good selection of traditional songs (which was probably somewhat wasted on the audience). Loved the lights which were unexpected and very much appreciated the music at the end and letting us jump on the mic for a bit of dancing. Would definitely recommend! Thanks Katie."
