Ceilidh, Concert Band, West & East Mids, Midlands (OCJ3)


A unique blend of:

Hot, spicy dance music from the swamps of Louisiana…
Exciting Appalachian fiddle….
Fifties, sixties and seventies rock….
Wild Irish jigs n reels….
Songs and vocals (in French and English)…..
and much more!

The band are all experienced musicians, having played with various other bands over the years – but this is different. Serious musicians with a great sense of fun!!

The Band:

3 piece:
Dick – accordion, harmonica, vocals
Jon – fiddle, mandolin
Al – vocals, guitar

Song, dance, a song, a dance and more songs.

Reference – from a ‘doubter’

Sorry about being late getting in touch with you to give you feedback from my 60th party. I have been busy working and also visiting a new baby born into the family, long distance.

Everyone, including myself and my daughter, loved the band, the music and the dancing. It was pitched just right and it was perfect. I thought it might not have been, I was worried that it might not be quite right but decided whatever happened I wouldn’t let it spoil the occasion.

It was quite the opposite – it outstripped my expectations. All the guests reported back that you were absolutely great. Please can you pass this on to all of the group and the manager too. If we need live party music again we shall come back to you.

Thank you ever so much for adding to the party.

Best wishes

From a band booking Sun 8th April 2012

I am sorry this is a little late but we have just returned from honeymoon.
I wanted to thank you and the band for an excellent night. Everyone had so much fun and it was wonderful to see so many people getting involved and having a go.
It was everything we had hoped it would be and thank you all for making the night after our wedding so memorable.

From a band booking Sat 14th July 2012 (Birthday Party)

Hi Chris,
Just a note to thank you and your band properly for a fantastic gig on Saturday. It was wonderful to be surrounded by so many happy, laughing friends and family who were clearly loving the music and dancing; we really appreciate you getting so many people involved and giving them such a fun evening. The feedback from all of our guests has been very positive – you really made it a night to remember! After a manic couple of days getting ready, we were really looking forward to ‘handing over’ to you and your band for the second part of our party and you enabled us to completely relax and really enjoy the occasion, for which we are everso grateful.

We shall, of course, be recommending you to anyone who asks. Do feel free to give out my e-address if anyone wants a personal recommendation.
With very best wishes,
Cathy and Stephen
