Southampton based ceilidh and barn dance band Hazelwood are the band for your event. We have experience in entertaining at all types of function - club/company socials wedding receptions fund raisers etc. You want a fun evening that all will enjoy and a barn dance is a great way to provide it. Our caller will guide your guests through the dances with the emphasis being on fun.
Hazelwood play a mixture of English Irish Scottish and American styles of music and have played in venues both small and large - village halls with under a 100 guests to the Bournemouth International Centre for 2000+ and we have been on the scene since 1992.
Our main band line-up is Mike on accordion Ted on acoustic guitar and Luke on percussion plus our caller. We have a number of musicians who guest for us if any of our regular band members are unavailable or if a larger band is required. Amanda our country & western singer is also available for special themed country & western evenings

We have already had thank you letters from people saying how much they enjoyed the band and the dancing. Well done you where all excellent and very professional."
"Dear Mike, A big thankyou to everyone for making Saturday night a great success. Laura thought you played brilliantly and Rob the caller worked really hard to get everyone into the dancing spirit. Lets hope we see you again in the future!"
"Hi Mike + All, On behalf of all the Community Church friends and family who attended the barn dance last Saturday (24/11/01), we just wanted to say a big thank you! We thought you were really great. Everyone enjoyed it and had a good time. If we do it again next year, you'll be the band!"
"Hazelwood, We would like to send a big "Thank You" to you all for helping to make our wedding a most memorable occasion. It seems our guests really enjoyed themselves and we certainly did. You have so much patience!
Perhaps you could let us know if you ever play at events open to the public - I'm sure we would have no problem in getting together a group of people who would love to do it all over again? "
Many thanks once again"
