We booked Blazing Saddles for my birthday barn dance and they were brilliant. We only had a duo with Tim and Debby which worked out perfectly. The music was excellent and Debby is a great caller who managed to get almost all the guests on the floor to take part in the dancing and, everyone had a great time. Debby was also easy to communicate with and very helpful during the planning stages.

Thank you so much to Blazing Saddles for making our Junior School Hoe Down such a success. We weren't sure what to expect but needn't have worried. Debby encouraged everyone on to the dance floor and broke the dances down in to easy steps - which meant that all the children of various ages were all able to take part, as well as the parents. There was a good mix of dances with great music and singing in between. Many people commented on the evening (and since) just how brilliant Blazing Saddles were. We will have no hesitation in asking Tim and Debby to do a future event for us and I highly recommend them if you want a fun and inclusive Hoe Down evening.
