The Trio were absolutely phenomenal

5 stars - The Manchester Ceilidh Trio are Highly Recommended
booked The Manchester Ceilidh Trio for their Wedding in Lancashire June 2022

“The Manchester Ceilidh Trio MADE our wedding. They brought the atmosphere and brought everyone together. The whole evening after their set was full of mingling between groups that had bonded over remembering their lefts from their rights. They warmed the room and got everyone dancing, with really clear and fun instructions. A huge thank you to all of you.”

Irresistible music

5 stars - The Irish Ceilidh Band are Highly Recommended
booked The Irish Ceilidh Band for their Wedding in Warwickshire June 2022

“Patrick and the band arrived and set up quickly and were playing straight away with no fuss or bother. They instantly drew the crowd in with their excellent musical talents and feet were tapping in no time. Be prepared! As soon as they start, people begin dancing, even the least likely guests will be up and going! We had to quickly draw back tables to make a bigger dance floor. As requested, they...”

5 stars - Last Tango In Harris are Highly Recommended
booked Last Tango In Harris for their Wedding in Edinburgh May 2022

“The band were not just delightful to deal with and very accommodating but the quality of their music was spotless - we had professional musicians as wedding guests and they were very complimentary on the band’s performance! Half of the wedding guests were foreign and had never experienced a ceilidh before, they left wanting it exported! The instructions were provided in a fun and easy way to un...”

John was the dream we could only imagine...

5 stars - The Banjo Guy are Highly Recommended
booked The Banjo Guy for their Wedding in South Yorkshire April 2022

“John was everything we hoped and more! I was so excited to hear his music live and he certainly didn't disappoint! Planning and arranging the set up with John was easy and his replies were always warm and informative. We requested the possibility of a song personal to us for when we walked down the aisle and what he put together was absolutely spot on and so beautiful! His talent is extraordina...”

5 stars - Gypsy Rogues are Highly Recommended
booked Gypsy Rogues for their Wedding in Herefordshire March 2022

“My partner and I wanted a relaxed, fun wedding day with a ceilidh in the evening. We got in touch with Alive and shortly afterwards booked the Gypsy Rogues. They were absolutely brilliant! Whilst not everyone joined in (which is always the way) the vast majority did, and every single person that was up and dancing had a big smile on their face. We were all beginners but this didn't matter in the s...”
