Here is an example of options we can offer. Our Service: We’ll play up to a maximum of four hours ceilidh which is more than enough for most people. (e.g. from 8pm till midnight), taking a short break during the evening buffet. We can call all the dances from the floor with a radio microphone so that all guests can join in regardless of experience. We can also sing some folk songs to break up the dancing if needed. We come with all our own great sounding P.A. and lighting when appropriate for that extra something. All our electrical equipment is PAT tested and we have our own public liability insurance. Our Reputation: As a full time professional musician you can be assured of the best attention in both musicianship and service. Please see the glowing third party reviews on our website and listen to some live audio clips for an accurate representation of the music. We are currently ranked no.1 out of 578 bands across the UK on FreeIndex. We have a vast experience in playing wedding and festivals including 7 appearances at T in the Park ceilidh tent.

Disco option: We also offer an optional Disco package we'd put on for the last hour till 1am and during the break or as you require, giving you up to a total 5 hours of music. if required the Disco is £180 in addition to any line up and covers also the cost of putting together any playlist you have in advance. If you wish to connect an iPod during our break rather than having the disco, no problem. We don’t charge extra for this.

What is your most memorable wedding?
My own one in Italy. I got some friends to play our ceilidh in Lecce. There was free wine all night and the band didn't start till 1am after 5 hours of eating. Free wine to Scots couldn't be refused of course and they were playing for free. The fiddle player got rather drunk and collapsed during our first dance. The second fiddle took over and we had a fantastic night. I keep threatining to put our wedding video on YouTube.
