Of course,many others amongst the ceilidh and barn dance bands which we represent will gladly travel to Essex - you can get the broader picture by going to our database. Just follow the link http://www.jigsnreels.com/search2.php and see just how many other bands are available to you. And don't forget..... our database is not totally extensive ! As you can see, there are other bands not even yet listed ! Just forward to us a general enquiry without specifying any particular band - it's almost certain that we are in contact with just the right ceilidh or barn dance band that would suit your particular wedding reception.

Finally, for your Wedding day, you can also book other types of artists (through this website) like Classical musicians, Jazz and Cover bands in Worcester and the whole of the Worcestershire area by clicking on http://www.jigsnreels.com/pagedetail.php?ID=19 .This new page will lead you to the link-up that we have with our partners. We do not specialise in providing such artists - BUT OUR PARTNERS DO ! 

For instance, you may wish to find a suitable Classical Quartet to perform earlier during the day. Naturally,should you wish to book another of these artists we can arrange this for you as part of one overall package - this means that we can undertake to 'dove-tail' the whole package of musical services so that you are not dealing with loads of different artists - meaning that all confirmations and paperwork can stay under the one,simple account. Alternatively,you may prefer to deal directly with our partners in their specialist field.The choice is,of course,yours entirely.
