Full Description
The World's Rockiest Ceilidh Band. For over 20 years The Big Shoogle have been renowned for their high-energy, rocky ceilidh tunes, cheekily mashing up rock riffs and anthems with the jigs and reels, electrifying fiddle melodies, rocky accordion and guitar licks underpinned with infectious drum rhythms. All that, and juxtaposed with haunting Scottish airs and flowing waltzes keeps it full of surprises. They’ll have you birlin’ round the dancefloor like experts to all the classic ceilidh dances. Even if you don’t know the difference between a Dashing White Sergeant and a haggis supper – have no fear – The Big Shoogle are here! The band is renowned for engaging with the crowd and encouraging guests onto the dancefloor, and with their unique, tongue-in-cheek approach in teaching the dances, ensure that the dancefloor is full every night. And if you'd like a break from the ceilidh dancing, the band can play many rock and pop cover songs later in the evening. These are all played 100% live. The core band is a 3 piece, comprising accordion with midi bass/keyboards, guitar, drums, 3 vocals and dance caller. However, more often now they work as a 4 piece with a superb fiddle player, which is the icing on the cake and adds a real extra dimension to the musical arrangements and overall sound. Highland dancers can also be added if your event so requires. This is particularly popular at many of the international corporate events where there are guests from all around the world. As well as providing a bona fide highland dancing display they'll work with the band while they're encouraging guests onto the dancefloor and assist with the dance instruction. You'll KNOW when you've been officially Shoogled!
