Just to thank you for helping the party go with such a swing on Saturday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and many are thinking of giving up the gym and taking up ceili dancing instead - think they need a bit of practise! I have received lots of compliments about how good you were and how friendly you all were. The hotel staff and food were also excellent but it's the band who made the night. Thanks again. Kind Regards Deborah

Just a quick email to once again say thank you for your services at our wedding reception last night. Myself and my wife were delighted and we really had a good night- thank you. Given the somewhat limited space we had to work with I think you and your team managed to fill the floor with a good bunch of enthusiastic participants and it definately helped make our wedding day. Kind regards and festive best wishes, Nigel and Sarah

Hi Ken Angie & Dave have just got back from their honeymoon and we saw them this weekend. They had a brilliant wedding and really enjoyed the ceili dancing - we even got a bit of it on video! They both send their many thanks to you, especially as so many other guests also said how much they enjoyed the whole experiece, particularly as they didn't know they could dance! We trust that you all had enough to eat and drink on the night and many thanks again. Best Wishes, Kevin

Thanks Ken - it was a great night with a lot of positive feedback. Everyone thought we should have one at least once a month! I'm sure if anyone is planning a do in the future they will ask for your details. Many many thanks again, Elaine :-)

We loved the band and you were everything we hoped for. Everyone at the reception had a great time and you got people dancing who never dance. I'd recommend you to anyone looking for a Ceili and actually one of our guests enquired about booking you for their 40th birthday next year. I'll be sure to put them in touch. Thanks again for being great and for being so easy to work with. Best wishes, Tim and Zoe

We really were so very pleased with the whole event. Both Helen & I (and perhaps more importantly, Ann & Adrian!) wouldn't hesitate for one moment from recommending you to other people needing Irish music! At that reception we had people present from all kinds of backgrounds, from factory workers in the woolen industry, to at least 1 GP, a medical Consultant, a TV personality (the anchorman for the "Calendar" News programme each night on Yorkshire TV), an irish professional dance accordian-player & singer from Northern Ireland with at least 12 albums to his name (my brother-in-law!), and 1 Tribunal Judge. -Every single person in the entire place came at some point and told us how much they had enjoyed the dance! The response was totally universal, so that says much more about the quality than I could ever say single-handed! And the Caller was superb! He held everything together so well. I think the 1st dance was done by people who didn't feel too challenged by the thought, as they had at least some vague experience of Irish dancing before, However, when the rest of the folks saw things going belly-up and how much laughter was going on by those dancing, then the bug simply spread. Everybody wanted a go, and the one thing I remember about the dancing was purely and simply the amount of constant laughter and fun that everybody taking part was having. -It was certainly a master-stroke by Ann to have an Irish ceili, as it didn't isolate people the same way a disco would have done, and our thanks have to go to you and the band for a truly superb evening of dance and fun. At the end of the day we would have to say that the entire evening was brilliant. Ann & Adrian returned from honeymoon in Barbados on 20th December and they were still, even then, talking about how much fun they had and how good the music was on the night (even after just coming back from having 2 weeks of Bob Marley!).

Alive Network made my wedding easy to entertain as the band Connery were on their books, free for the date I wanted them and fantastic fun on the night. All my guests enjoyed them and the venue has never rocked like that before. Recommended
