I'm looking for a ceilidh band for our upcoming wedding. I've probably left it too late now but worth checking.
Wedding is 14 Oct 2017 in dunkeld.
We are looking for a band but not necessarily to play a full normal set. We'd like a good few songs that get people going then probably a dj for a bit with the band doing songs in between non ceilidh music. Or like 2 x 30 to 40 mins sets. Or a mix of the above really.
An idea for availability and cost would be perfect.
My work Restaurant is holding a local fundraising event in aid to raise as much money for our chosen charity ( maternity unit at Wishaw general hospital ). The date of even will be on Monday 2nd may. We are having a ' family fun day ' which includes face painting and bouncy castle. We are looking for something a bit extra and different and would love to have your balloon making services. We are looking for a quote if possible.
Wedding in Gretna Green, Solo set with guitar preferably for the ceremony with a set list of songs, prior, walking the isle and signing, and hopefully a set or 2 later at the evening in a nearby hotel free scope for song list, estimate figures for variation of available timings would be appreciated, thanks for feed back.
We're getting married in Glasgow 5 mins from the city centre on the 4th March 2017.
I was hoping to surprise my wife to be with a band to restart the party after the break in the evening for about 30 mins. With such a short set I was hoping for an acoustic set to maximise the surprise.
She loves Mariachi bands, as well as the Mariachi covers of modern songs (like the Dorito adverts). Its a bit of a long shot at this late stage and this might not be possible at all. But was just looking for a quote, as you can imagine planning and paying for a wedding is costly!
The venue is German themed, so a german band may work if mariachi isn't available, if they can do covers.
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.
Black Velvet Band Ceilidh Trio provided a brilliant ceilidh for our wedding celebrations at Goldney Hall, Bristol on 12 August 2017. What a fantastic evening! The band entertained our hardy Scottish guests with well-known Scottish dances but it was most enjoyable to see English friends and family ceilidh dancing for the first time and loving it! The dances were called very clearly and were quite ambitious so there was much hilarity. It was infectious fun and everyone got involved. (The dance floor was almost too small!). Mike and the band were extremely accommodating, professional and enthusiastic. They have a huge repertoire and organised the evening flawlessly, from our first dance (Gay Gordons) to the throwing of the bouquet and the final Circassian Circle. Highly recommended.
The Spring Heeled Jacks were absolutely fantastic. They fitted in with our wedding schedule seamlessly, setting up in the background unnoticed. They provided brilliant entertainment, pitching it just right for our very novice group of dancers ranging from 2-80. They also played a couple of traditional Irish songs for us that we requested which had sentimental value and went down really well. The band also stayed a bit longer as everyone was having such a good time which was very kind. Would thoroughly recommend them!
