About: We're a great fun band playing Irish and Scottish music with amusing little stories to compliment the tunes. A night with us will have you smiling and dancing and singing along. Think of The Dubliners and you'll be close to our sound and music. We play weddings, parties, wakes, festivals and ceil......
Recent review: Stomping Boondocks were a pleasure to work with and all of our guests were raving about them. Three guests wanted the band's details and were inspired to think about planning their own ceilidh fundraisers. We had such a fun evening. Thank you!

Recent review: "Blag were absolutely brilliant and exactly what we were after. This was a big corporate party for a young audience and they were fun and a modern take on a ceilidh band. I highly recommend them for any event as they would be great regardless of audience."

Recent review: I cannot rate Ceili Max more highly. All of the members of the band were helpful, enthusiastic and incredibly talented! They went above and beyond to make our evening special. All 150 people danced all evening and I put this entirely down to the energy generated by Ceili Max. We have already booked

Recent review: Absolute were fantastic! Their professionalism made everything incredibly easy for us. They made the day extra special learning secret songs to surprise my bride and their Irish set was simply brilliant. The whole wedding loved them. I couldn't recommend them enough. 10/10

I am planning a 60th Birthday party for my husband to be held at the Royal British Legion Alphington, Exeter. It will have mixed ages from young children to elderly relatives would your entertainment be suitable for that?
Hi, I am looking to put on some live music at South Molton Rugby Club , North Devon on Saturday the 18th of March next year fo a St Patrick's night. The event would take place indoors.
I'm organising a 60th birthday party for my husband at kingston-estate in their basement. My husband likes a plethora of music including Led Zeppelin, R&B, Soul, Motown etc. I'm really looking for a band who will get the party moving.
My fiance, Andrew, and I are getting married on 29th April 2017 and would definitely love to have a Ceilidh in the evening and I had your name passed on to me. The reception is at Kia Ora Gardens, Knowle Lane, Cullompton, Devon.
We would love to hear whether you are available on that date. We have a few other questions:
~How long do you tend to play for at a wedding? We would ideally like two sets of at least 1.5hours each.
~The reception is in a marquee and we will be hiring a generator. Are there any particular requirements for power that we would need to consider?
~How much do you charge and what does the price cover (travel/caller etc.)?
~How long in advance to you need to arrive to set up?
Thanks! Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks, best wishes,
Event will be indoors with a Vegas theme . We would want elvis to perform for two hours at the evening reception and we would require a dj/disco for after .
We like also like elvis to meet and greet as guests arrive at the reception . Thanks
we are having a wedding for around 90 guests and we thought before the DJ kicked in it would be fun to have a ceilidh band to liven the room and get people on their feet.
We didn't really want a slow first dance where everyone watches us shuffle round the dance floor so we thought perhaps this would be a fun thing to do with the bridesmaids and ushers.
Please could you let me know the cost of a session, how long this would be and anything else you feel we should know.
If you could email your reply to it would be appreciated.
Hi - Im looking for an acoustic band / soloist preferable grass roots, USA country or similar - prefer male voice or group. We are having a small garden wedding reception. This is a surprise for my fiance :-)
The first big ask was ‘please play this song that no one has ever heard of as our first dance’. And they played it perfectly. The second thing was our style of music in between live sets, we didn’t want cheese, YMCA or Dancing Queen. We wanted our favourites and current chart music and that’s what we got. The dance floor was packed all night long, the band got one of our guests to sing on stage. It was awesome having One Band there.
I’d just like to say a massive thank you to Dave, Mike and Gerry who form The Berking Mad Band. This is the third event that we have booked them for and once again it was a massive success.
They are always reliable and turn up on time. They set up the equipment with no fuss and are very adaptable to any type of event whether it be a Burns Night, a Ceilidh, a Wedding or a Birthday Party.
Dave is incredibly patient at giving instructions to those who are novice dancers and even goes out onto the dance floor to help people with the dance steps. They cater for all abilities, young and old!
Dave encourages people to get up to dance without being too intrusive and has a good sense of humour which makes people laugh and enjoy the night.
Everyone who has been to our events where The Berking Mad Band have played have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have always been very positive about this band.
I would certainly recommend The Berking Mad Band for any occasion and will be booking them again in the future.
