The smallest unit available is a duo comprising two musicians (guitar/vocals and fiddle) to perform either 3 x 40 min or 2 x 60 min sets of Irish songs and tunes in a 3 hour period. An additional accordion player is available for larger events . This increases the price by £195.00. The price is based on the band arriving 1 hour before the 1st set is due to start. It takes 30 mins to set up the band's PA system. Background music will be played through the PA system for 30 mins before the 1st set and between the 1st and 2nd sets. Here are some recent reviews of the Irish band in action:- Irish Night to celebrate St Patrick’s Day – Lawrence Weston Social Club – March 16th 2019 Well what can I say? Johnny and Jase are a great duo! They performed a super mix of Irish songs and tunes and had people up dancing all night. Would highly recommend. Karl Baxter Black Velvet Band Irish Duo – St Patrick’s Day at Westbury Conservative Club – March 17th 2019 What a great way to celebrate St Patrick’s day at our Cons club! The performance went amazingly well! The dance floor was full on a SUNDAY AFTERNOON?? I put that down to the guys who played songs and tunes with such an exciting beat that you just couldn’t stay still. The whole afternoon was huge fun. I highly recommend the band. Stephen Jones Black Velvet Band Irish Duo – Irish Joe’s 30th Birthday Party – May 2018 "Mike and Aidan played at my brothers birthday and completely made our night. The music was excellent and the guys were very professional. We can’t rate the band highly enough." Martin Duffy Black Velvet Band Irish Trio at The Royal Oak – St Pat’s 2018 "Many thanks to Black Velvet Band for a fine dose of the "craic" for St Pats! What a grand performance - everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Great singing combined with jigs and reels to get everyone dancing. We can't wait to have you back again!" Peter Fisher

Wraggle Taggle Ceilidh Band

Wraggle Taggle Traditional Irish Band

Verified bookings: 16
Wraggle Taggle are a professional award-winning and talented band with many years of experience, all the musicians have been performing, touring and recording for many years. We are flexible enough as regards personnel, instrumentation and musical style to be able to tailor a band to your specific requirements. Award winning musicians Eugene Teevan (accordion), and Mick O'Connor (tenor banjo) form the "core" of the band with bandleader Mick Bailey (guitar/vocals). Add additional instruments below We will bring all necessary instruments and equipment and travel is included. All we need is a couple of normal 3 pin plug sockets and chairs without arms. As a guide I suggest two one hour sets or three 45min sets with short breaks, though my aim is really to fit in with your arrangements. I do bring an iPod to provide similar background music in the breaks. I have a wide selection of tracks available.

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
