Crieff Hydro, 21 August 2019

The Ceilidh Experience played our wedding at Crieff Hydro Hotel – we had about half and half English and Scottish guests , which meant that a lot of our guests hadn’t a clue about the ceilidh dances. This was never a problem on the night though, as the band did a great job of talking us through the dances one by one in a friendly way.

They’re excellent musicians (as you can tell by their samples on their website) and they got everybody into a really fun, give-it-a-go spirit. The feedback we’ve had from guests (including those that had never Ceilidhed before) has been overwhelmingly positive. People were saying they forgot to take any photos because they got so caught up in all the dancing!

They were a friendly bunc...

  • Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:
    Wedding Ceilidh rock band with DJ
  • What are the highlights of your career?
    We've played weddings all over Scotland and throughout England and Europe. We've also done various festivals and were recently the first Scottish band to headline The WOW FESTIVAL in Castelfidardo, Italy.
  • What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
    We have worked with the same band members and DJ for quite a few years now. This means that the band & DJ will flow seamlessly fading from one to the other for the full evening. There will be no breaks or silences at any point from the start right up until the last dance.
  • What kind of events do you usually serve?
    We specialise in weddings but also play a lot of corporate events. You can also catch us live at many public ceilidh events throughout the year, in Edinburgh.
  • Who are your previous clients?
    We have played for many high profile events. We've recently performed on Channel 4's Four in a bed. We also appeared on Magic TV where we taught Strictly Come Dancing stars 'Kate Thornton & Craig Revel Horwood' how to ceilidh dance!
  • How can event planners pay for your services?
    Our preferred payment method is bank transfer
  • How long do you play for?
    Usually for weddings we cover four hours. The band and DJ play about half each. The DJ will play background music during the buffer / break and the band will come back on for a final spot at the end of the evening.
  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
  • How much space do you require?
    Ideally 6.5m x 4m but we can downsize to suit.
  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
    Please ask! If the band think they can make it sound good, they can learn it. If it doesn't suit their style let our DJ know in advance and he'll make sure he has it on the night.
  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
    Between band and DJ we can cover the full evening and whenever the guests need a break we can put on background music during this time (Usually 45 mins) but we're flexible with whatever timings suit you and your guests.
  • What style of music do you offer?
    Ceilidh with a rock twist
  • Is it possible to request something that's not in the repertoire?
    Yes, but you must allow plenty of time.
  • Do you do open-air acts?
    We can do open air providing there is a roof over the stage area, to protect our electrical equipment and musical instruments from the weather.
