Description

Price from: £650

“Price Of My Pig (a great name for a band) come from the North West England in the UK… a high octane folk/funk dance band who like to bring a little more life and energy to your average ceilidh, by introducing rhythms from disco, reggae, funk, afrobeat, ska into their mix of Irish, English and European folk tunes.” Folk Roots Radio

“Top of the list when we are booking bands for next year. Hopefully we will see you at some of the larger festivals soon.” Phoenix Ceilidhs

The ‘POMP’ Ceilidh Band, with their driving beats and memorable melodies, are well received at weddings, corporate and private events as well as festivals, both with and without a dance caller. Energetic, exciting and exhilarating.

We knew we wanted a Ceilidh band from the moment we started planning our big day. I still cannot fathom just how amazingly priced and incredible Price of My Pig were! 🐷
A 5 piece band with caller, our guests are still raving about just how unique they were and how much they loved them!
We adored having them play for our wedding and I cannot recommend them enough! Absolutely superb entertainment.
They’ll be something guests will remember forever for sure! Thank you so much from
Mr and Mrs Walker 31.05.22 (we’ll upload photos when we get some back) all our guests were too busy dancing to take any of their own 😸

Price of My Pig were fantastic. We hired them for our wedding evening, as we wanted to have a Ceilidh for the guests.
The band was flexible to meet our requirements for during the buffet, and were excellent at getting all of the guests involved and on the dance floor, to make sure that there was always dancing going on!

The music was fantastic, and the musicians were incredible.

Thank you Ben and the band for making our wedding evening a blast!

We weren't able to have PoMP at our wedding due to UK coronavirus restrictions, however they were incredibly flexible in returning our deposit and we plan to hopefully use them in future when we renew our vows. Ben is very friendly and prompt with queries.

We could’ve have been happier with them. They were excellent. Polite, helpful, very professional and kept us entertained all night. We could not speak too highly of them and would recommend them without reservation.
They also play music for a disco too which worked well for us.
