What event planners say about our suppliers


Die Dorf Fest Kapelle made my Dad’s 60th Birthday one of my most memorable parties. They were seamless and entertained a group of 70 strong party goers of varying ages. They were really friendly and I wouldn’t think twice about having them back in the future.


I just wanted to say such a huge thank you for the amazing performance that you gave. You were so friendly and willing to help in any way that any nervousness about getting up to dance was immediately dismissed. I was extremely apprehensive prior to the night about how the dancing would go down, especially with my two left feet! However my worrying was in vain, what a fantastic night of dancing it was, so inclusive that any and all can get up and get involved, aged 5 or 105. You need no experience or talent, just listen to the brilliant calling, it’s all simple moves but when it comes together with all your friends and family on the night, prepare to be amazed. I can not thank the band enough for making our Wedding such a fantastic night, I have never seen so many people thoroughly enjoying themselves all at once. I can sincerely recommend the Black Velvet Band for any social occasion, your expectations will be exceeded. (10 / 10)


Our Piper was great! he arrived on time and played exactly what we wanted him to play including a rousing rendition of Flower of Scotland!!!!i would definately book him again.
