Shenanigans Irish Music Duo
Recent review: Fantastic duo, had an amazing new year's both were very friendly and professional will definitely be booking them again in the future.
Recent review: Blag played a Ceilidh for my 50th Birthday party on Saturday. We had a fantastic time and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The calling was very clear and the music brilliantly played. I specifically wanted an event where young and old, keen and not so keen dancers would all participate and that was achieved to the enjoyment of everyone. Thank you so much. The communication before the event was clear and helpful - David answering all sorts of detailed questions that I had. I can thoroughly recommend Blag to ensure a great event.
Recent review: The guys did such a good job for our wedding, played our request for our first dance and ceremony perfectly. All of our guests commented on how great the band were. Would 100% recommend or any event, especially weddings!
BLACK VELVET BAND - Ceilidh, Irish & Hoedown
Recent review: Thank you so much for being able to accommodate us on the wedding of my son! What with atrocious weather causing extensive flooding that weekend and having to postpone the wedding from the Saturday night until the Sunday, we were more than grateful that the band was still willing and able to perform on the Sunday. Great music and excellent calling made the evening, with all participants thoroughly enjoying themselves - sometimes with a little over enthusiasm! I highly recommend this band to any future clients booking. The band were more than helpful - especially Jennie with all my questions and the band on the day were superb. All good wishes, Phyllis Steele
Recent review: We hired the Stomping Boondocks for our wedding in June 2019, and they were absolutely fantastic. They were communicative and professional in advance, and bent over backwards for us. On the night they were brilliant, and guests absolutely loved them. Would highly recommend.
Harbottle and Jonas
Recent review: My Wife and I wanted to leave a review to say how incredibly this duo are. We utterly adored them and they made the evening so special. Everyone who came could tell how much passion they have for your craft and it really showed. There were no issues on the day, no problems with learning our requests and they even managed to put up with our drunken families - all with a smile on their faces. Even if you don't think you like folk music now, you will after hearing them. In summary: Brilliant.
Recent review: Thanks Steve for performing at our wedding. You were a hit with us and our guests who have commented positively since about your performance. Big thanks for letting us request a few songs not on your list. You really added a special touch to our day.

Recent review: Thanks to Shenanigan for making my 70th Birthday Ceilidh evening go so well. The dances , pace, calling etc., were perfect in encouraging everyone, including some who never normally dance at all, as well as the children, to try it and to enjoy themselves. I would recommend you in future.
Recent review: Great duo, who performed fantastic covers of well known songs and were very professional in their setup and their performance. The combination of guitar and violin worked brilliantly. The Crutwells made for a really enjoyable evening, and come highly recommended!

I would recommend them to anyone considering hiring a ceilidh band for a wedding!

Recent review: We had the best time with this duo. They were fun and entertaining and I would certainly recommend them. Would love to have them again for our next event.
Spill The Whisky Ceilidh Band
Recent review: A fantastic band with so much patience! We ended up having a couple adjustments to the schedule we were going to follow, plus an unexpected delay to the actual start of the music playing, but Spill the Whiskey were really good at going with the flow. They managed to get almost all the guests off their chairs -- the only ones who didn't get up were those who couldn't, and made dancing fun for everyone involved. We had actual people who knew how to dance, people who had no clue, and people who shouldn't be allowed on a dancefloor (me) but somehow the band played songs that worked for all of us and the amount of fun we had just cannot be put into words. Also, they ended their set beautifully, giving us a chance to go round all our guests and exchange a few words and a hug, which meant the world to me. Fantastic band, I very much recommend them!
Recent review: "Great job, thanks! Good selection of traditional songs (which was probably somewhat wasted on the audience). Loved the lights which were unexpected and very much appreciated the music at the end and letting us jump on the mic for a bit of dancing. Would definitely recommend! Thanks Katie."
