A truly electric four piece ceilidh band with fiddle, bass, electric guitar and drums, adding an exciting, modern twist to traditional ceilidh music.
Our repertoire is as long as Nessie’s tale and don’t worry if you don’t know the dances as we will guide you with full instructions for each one. Our dances are quite easy and you’ll have so much fun, even wee old Auntie Maureen, or grumpy Sam from finance, might be persuaded to get up and have a go (in fact they might even dance together!).
We bring the house down in all venues - from castles to canvases, from hotels to huts – in fact any event or place that wants to enjoy an evening of merriment with exciting music. A DJ is always included to play your favourite song for the first dance and later in the evening if required.
We like to put the ‘ding’ in ‘wedding’, and the ‘corr!’ in corporate’, so give us a call to make sure your evening will genuinely rock!*
*NB: Our music is much better than our puns!

Bass rock were great at my wedding reception. Guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and Mary was so friendly.

Had a brilliant night with the band. In the run up to it they were very communicative and on the night talked people through the dances and when it moved to disco time the music selection was spot on

Bass Rock (3 piece) were excellent, especially the quality of the music, but they were also great keeping us all right with the dance steps.
