“Thank you for making our party go with a swing, lots of friends complimented your music and everyone had a great evening. Your caller remained wonderfully calm and cheerful despite the hilarious mayhem – perfect! Thanks again for a fantastic night. We all had a brilliant time." Ann and Sandra, Bath, June 2018
“A huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for the fantastic set on Friday night. You all sounded great, and I’ve heard lots of positive comments from our dancers. I’m hopeful there will be a next time – everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and with any luck some word of mouth will get round about how much fun it was.” Chair, Moorlands School PTA, Bath, April 2018

Fantastic evening, The Nestling Trust are delighted to give Pipley Ceilidh 5 stars! Our fundraising event was a huge success thanks to the great music and enthusiastic musicians and caller. Cannot speak too highly of them all, who went out of their way to ensure our guests had great fun - so much so we’ve had numerous requests to run a similar event soon! Very professional band with a very personal approach. Thank you.

My partner Becky organised Pipley Dance and Ceilidh Band for my surprise 30th birthday party and I cannot recommend them highly enough! We had such a brilliant time and the band really made it the perfect celebration. As a group we were mixed abilities and ages, but everyone got involved at some point and we have had so many wonderful comments from guests about how much they enjoyed it! Rachel and the band were so friendly and such talented musicians. Their caller is excellent, offering really clear instructions and was great at making people feel welcome. I have been to a number of ceilidhs over the last few years and I definitely think that they are the best band I have seen. I just hope that we can go to see them again soon! Thanks to the band for being part of the celebration and making so many wonderful memories. Rob
