We have been recommended to you by a friend who saw you at a wedding you played at. She said you guys were great and got everyone on their feet dancing. This is exactly what we are looking for.
Our wedding is going to be in the garden of my parents house in Surrey.
Please let me know how much Black and Gold would cost for the evening of our Wedding party and any other information you have. Also, would it be possible to play the song of our first dance? It's not a main stream song so I don't think it will be one you already know.

Winter ball Charity event for local school for children on the autistic spectrum will be held at boringdon golf club including 3 course meal photo booth, raffle , auction this is the first winter ball our charity has organised so want some amazing entertainment that people won't forget but reasonably priced as all for charity we are expecting 300-350 people to attend
The night went very well and people really enjoyed the band. Only problem was the band wasn't loud enough and we ah e to move then from where we Isley out our bands mid way through so the Bay Area could hear them. To be honest it was much busier than we expected so it wasn't a fault of anyone just an issue we experienced.
Quite simply THE BEST ceilidh band! We saw these guys at the Lincoln Steampunk Asylum last year and loved them so much we had to have them for our Steampunk wedding. They were just amazing, the look of happiness of our guests faces as they danced and the number of people who are still talking about the band says it all. And, I might add, the whole whole band is really nice, a genuinely great bunch of people as well as being fantastic musicians and incredibly entertaining. There aren't enough superlatives! Highly recommended (now we just need to find an excuse to celebrate something else so we can see you again!)
