We believe starting your ceilidh / barndance with a bang is vital. If guests enjoy the first dance then they’re more likely to keep coming back for more so the first choice is key. As a ceilidh opener, we love Virginia Reel. It’s quick to teach and set up so there’s not much waiting around

All of our guests said how great the Ceilidh was and the disco afterwards was perfect. - 04 Sep 2019

Absolutely incredible, dance floor was full all night and they even did a DJ set after the ceilidh. We’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a ceilidh band! - 23 Sep 2019

We’ll create your perfect playlist in advance and adjust it on the night to get the very best response from guests. You have complete control over the tracks we play or you can leave it to us if you prefer. Alternatively you can supply a list of genres / eras / artists etc. We’re also happy to take requests from guests on the night too.
Our lighting rig includes laser, strobe, glitter ball etc. which creates a perfect contrast with the ceilidh. The ceilidh is brightly lit (so dancers can see what they’re doing!) and we turn off the venue lights and our disco lights on creating extra momentum between the sections. For larger events we can also supply a DJ booth with LED starcloth and larger rigs.
The ceilidh and disco use the same sound system, maximizing space. We’d normally do 2 x 1 hour ceilidh sets then straight to a 1 to 2 hour disco. We love ending with a big dance like “Strip The Willow” and whilst guests are still on the floor, switch straight to the DJ creating a nice flow between the sections. There’s flexibility with timings – if guests are “ceilidh’d out” we’ll move on to the disco earlier or extend the ceilidh if it’s swinging!
