Berking Mad is a long established ceilidh/barn dance band with caller and PA. Comprising melodeon, guitar and caller. The band has a wide repertoire of dances from very easy to quite difficult and slow to fast. The caller is sensitive to dancers abilities and believes a ceilidh should be fun and not a workshop. We always turn up, or, in extenuating circumstances will find a replacement.

It was my son's 30th birthday party and the band were excellent. They arrived on time and set up very quickly. They pitched their dances to the ability of our dancers and the caller was really patient and godd humoured. I would recommend Berking Mad Ceilidh Band very highly. They even coped really well with the freezing cold hall (the heating wasn't working properly).

"The band were absolutely lovely, played brilliantly, and were flexible about timings on the day when not all had gone to plan. Would book them again in a heartbeat.

Thanks Berking Mad!

Arrived early and were patient and flexible when timings on the day didn’t go exactly to plan. Very lovely people too, laid back and a lot of fun. Everyone had a great evening!

I’ve been Mrs Donnelly for 2 weeks now and I’m still smiling from how lovely our wedding was which is mainly thanks to you and your band mates.

Our family and friends and still talking about the day and how great the ceilidh was. The atmosphere you created was just what we wanted and you were wonderful when the singer didn’t turn up.

We can’t thank you enough.

Kind regards,
