Amycrofters

The Amycrofters Band is led by Andrew on accordion. He is a very experienced dance musician. The band has been delighting Ceilidh and Barn dancers since 2002. Andrew is accompanied by his wife June, who plays keyboard and banjolele. She adds further rhythm, phrasing and variety to the sound of the accordion. The couple often play as a duo. This makes them less expensive and more flexible than larger groups. With their lively foot tapping, varied sound, this is a popular option with organisers. If required the Amycrofters are fortunate to be able to call on the services of other talented instrumentalists, such as violinists, and mandolin, banjo and guitar players. They are then known as the Amycrofters Plus. The band provides full PA equipment tailored to the needs of the event, however large or small. We provide our own stage lighting if necessary. Equipment is safety tested and the band has full public liability insurance. Stage setup and ...

What event planners say about our suppliers


We had an absolutely fabulous time and mariachi rey were brilliant! Very professional and great fun from start to finish. They had pre warned me that they may be a few minutes late depending on traffic and they were very good at keeping me up to date with their estimated arrival time. They were very promt, very good, and very accommodating. Would highly recommend them. Everyone at my party commented on them and I think they made my party without a doubt. Thank you.


Blag played at our wedding reception and were fantastic, it created such a good atmosphere and everyone really enjoyed it!


Black Velvet Band Irish Duo performed at my Mum’s surprise 70th birthday. We loved the performance and didn’t want them to stop! The party was a huge success and the excellent music really helped to create the atmosphere. Thank you very much, guys!
