Recent review: Stomping Boondocks were a pleasure to work with and all of our guests were raving about them. Three guests wanted the band's details and were inspired to think about planning their own ceilidh fundraisers. We had such a fun evening. Thank you!

The pace of instruction was suitable for a mixed audience & we only wish that we could of hired our venue for longer to enjoy the Spring Heeled Jacks for longer. I would
Recent review: I am really awestruck at your performance. You made my day at my 50th birthday. The way you played it was rocking. Everyone around enjoyed thoroughly. From small children, teenagers to adults everyone started dancing. I saw you first in the wedding of my niece. I made my mind then that you are perfo
Recent review: We were really pleased that we had booked the Black Velvet Ceilidh Band for a ceilidh at our daughter’s wedding at Old Down Manor. Before the event they spoke to our daughter and planned with her exactly what she would like from them, the type of music and how they would organise the evening so that

The standard and range of music was perfect, there was a great progression of styles and tempo, with our guests enjoying sitting and listening as well as dancing. There were smiling faces everywh
Recent review: A very nice band who did a great job at getting my (somewhat reluctant) party up on their feet dancing. One of the band's member was late but this did not matter and they played later to make up for the time. Super friendly and nice.
Recent review: I cannot rate Ceili Max more highly. All of the members of the band were helpful, enthusiastic and incredibly talented! They went above and beyond to make our evening special. All 150 people danced all evening and I put this entirely down to the energy generated by Ceili Max. We have already booked

Recent review: A HUGE thank you to the members of the Shipsters who played at my party on Saturday night in Vauxhall. They were fantastic, Dan was reassuringly there well in advance and was so amenable. They were super quick and efficient about setting up and taking down. Everyone thought they were fantastic and I
Recent review: I am so glad I booked the Amycrofters for my Barn Dance to celebrate a big birthday. I have all my dances on a CD – but organising a mic and amplifiers was proving a real headache. Andrew & June can turn their hands to anything: our caller afterwards commented that they were unusually good – he was
