(43)

BLACK VELVET BAND CEILIDH TRIO

Verified bookings: 43
BLACK VELVET BAND CEILIDH TRIO provides two musicians (guitar/vocals or accordion & fiddle) + dance caller to perform 2 x 1 hour sets of ceilidh dancing in a 3 hour period. Watch the attached video of the band in action. Mike (fiddle), Jase (accordion) and Jon (guitar/vocals) are all featured. 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 band's performance:- Suzanne’s 30th Wedding Anniversary Ceilidh – June 2019 We had a really great evening. The musicians were very friendly and accommodating. When some of our guests were late arriving because of the dreaded road closure and subsequent diversions, they adapted their sets to suit our timings and many non-dancers were encouraged to get up and shake a leg. Everyone said how much they enjoyed themselves and we would certainly recommend and use them again. Suzanne Guppy Emily’s Wedding Anniversary Ceilidh – June 2019 I just wanted to say how pleased and impressed we all were with Black Velvet's musicianship and all-round professionalism. We also especially enjoyed Alan’s introductions to the dances. He was great fun! Thanks so much for making our party just what we hoped it would be. Emily Trueman-Greinke Hannah and Deryk’s Ceilidh – February 2019 We absolutely loved having Black Velvet Band play our wedding ceilidh at Clearwell Castle. My husband is from Scotland so we wanted a traditional Scottish ceilidh feel with some of the classics, and we were not disappointed! We had a good feeling about Black Velvet band from the moment we booked them – and sure enough, Mike and the guys were absolutely fantastic and made our evening party a huge success. The band were great and the instructions on the ceilidh dances were so helpful; even those of our party who may not have normally danced were up there loving life on the dancefloor. The fun and friendly atmosphere they created was just fab and so different from your ‘usual’ evening do. All our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceilidh and some said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We would 100% book the band again and recommend them to friends. Thank you for contributing to the best day of both our lives. Hannah and Deryk Hunter

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: Hi Barbara, Thanks so much to you, John and Chris for the fantastic music and calling on Saturday. Even though the set was rather compressed by our over running speeches (sorry about that!) I know everyone had a brilliant time and really enjoyed it. I know you stayed rather later than you had planned and we really appreciate your flexibility. Thank again for a brilliant evening. You were really wonderful. And we loved hearing Bonnie Kate!

Recent review: The band were great and everyone had a good time joining in with the dancing. I was told that the caller was “dry as the Aticama desert” but unfortunately a few of my guests and myself included felt he came across as a little rude on occasions. Also I know it’s traditional that men dance with women but I have quite a few male friends in same sex relationships and there were a couple of occasions where this wasn’t taken into consideration. Maybe just referring to partners 1 and 2 would have been more inclusive for a less traditional crowd. However, the music was great and the callers direction and instruction was very clear. He made the dances easily understood for people of all ages and abilities so we didn’t get in to many tangles. Communication with Mike before the party was great and they all arrived in plenty of time to set up without any problems. It was a great night and I really enjoyed my first ever Barn Dance!
