"Richard and Climax were fantastic, we found them to be very professional and the music they played was really good.
I would highly recommend this band to everyone, and I can promise you will not be dissapointed.
Also I would like to add that we had a lot of fun and so did the band.
If you want a good band and good music then book Climax."

"Thank you so much for playing at our Wedding reception on Saturday at the Donnington Manor Hotel. We ourselves thoroughly enjoyed the Ceilidh and we have received highly praising comments from many of our guests. The most recent comment came from one of Claire's cousins who said ""When I get married I'm definitely going to have a ceilidh at my wedding reception!""
The music sounded great and Heather's instructions and calling were perfect.
We have left an appropriate Google review.
Once again thank you very much for a wonderful evening!"

Thanks so much for the performance on Wednesday. It was fantastic and everyone had a great time. I’ve had lots of people whose first ceilidh it was say that they can’t wait to do it again and there are many sore legs around the building today – proof of a good time I think!
