What event planners say about our suppliers


I would never finish describing how phenomenal the Chartz band was when they graced our wedding. For once I witnessed an energy outburst like never before from the first step of the dance to the last. Everyone was just up there on the dance floor enjoying every moment. Simply wonderful!


If you're looking for a band who will transform a tent full of people having quiet drinks into a raging fury of dance laughter merriment and general good times then BLAG are the act you're looking for. We booked them for a green and event to raise money to fight greenbelt destruction nearby and they instantly communicated with everybody In the room (which ranged from early 20s to late 50s and 60s) the minute they started playing. A great repertoire of traditional favourites and interesting covers especially the doors' "people are strange" They're compact yet sound huge- and the great calling instructions had everybody laughing and smiling no matter how awful they were at dancing the Gay Gordon!. Sometimes this kind of ceilidh can be slow and boring when everybody doesn't really know what to do but the band made it all happen very quickly and very enjoyably . Did I mention they're nice guys as well?


Booked these guys for new years eve, and what a show, loved it, again in 2018?
