Thanks so much to Aluinn Ceilidh Band for helping to make our wedding celebrations so much fun! What a great way to get everyone up on the dance floor. The band was excellent and we enjoyed every dance. We'd recommend you to everyone!
We've just completed our Ceilidh for my 50th birthday. I had the band Aluinn and they were absolutely fantastic, I really enjoyed it. They really got the party going and it was a fantastic quality of music. Thanks so much!
Hi Aly, We just wanted to reiterate our thanks for a fabulous evening of entertainment. Comments such as "best ceilidh ever" and the sheer number of people you got dancing were a testament to the enjoyment you gave us. Best wishes for the future and thanks again. Steve and Molly.
Hi Aly, Just emailing to thank you and the Aluinn band members who played at our wedding on 7th July. The ceilidh was so much fun; we've been inundated with feedback from guests who really enjoyed the music and dancing! Several people, who by self-admission rarely dance, got involved which is a clear testament to your enthusiasm and clear instructions. We really appreciate your patience when teaching the dances. I'm sure the ceilidh will remain a talking point for years to come!
Hi Aly, Richard & I wanted to say thank you very much to you & the band for an excellent wedding ceilidh on Saturday evening. We had an absolutely wonderful evening & a large part of that was thanks to yourselves for providing such a fantastic ceilidh. The calling was great and allowed everyone to get involved even if they had never been to a ceilidh before. The music was second to none & made for a wonderful atmosphere all night. Thank you all so much, Best wishes, Hollie & Richard.
Hi Aly (and all the Aluinn and Definitives musicians), WOW - you are brilliant, amazing and totally delivered!!! Thank you all so much for playing at my party at Markington Hall last week and making it such an incredible evening. Really enjoyed both bands equally. Quite a few people were worried about the ceilidh and told me they "probably won't dance" but they did and they didn't seem to stop all night. And then the momentum seemed to pick up even more with the Definitives sets - just fab. Quite a few people have asked me for your details so I hope this will lead to more bookings in our area. Keep up the good work and have a great summer. Kind regards, Liz Hawkes
Aly - you and the band did an outstanding job for us at our wedding last weekend. A number of our guests have told us how much they loved the ceilidh. One of our Scottish guests who's been to tens of ceilidhs before said you were the best band he'd heard. Our photographer said it was the best thing he'd ever seen at a wedding! Gianna and I also loved it. We have been to a few ceilidhs before and know how important the caller is for the whole thing to work well and you did an excellent job. Thanks to all of you for your help in making our day so much fun!
Alison & I just want to say how many guests commented on how brilliant you folks were at our wedding back in April. Great mix of tunes, fantastic calling of the dances and so much fun. Thanks again. If folks don't book you for a ceilidh, they are insane!
Thank you so much for coming to play on New Years Eve – I just wanted to email to say how much we all enjoyed things. Best wishes.
Just writing to thank you for an excellent evening on the 15th June, it couldn't have been better, your group was absolutely super. Lots of people have expressed their appreciation for the lovely music and had such a fantastic time. I was so pleased with everything you played and you were all so helpful and gave us just what we wanted. I think people were surprised to hear such a good quality band (is that the word?) in little Baildon and your music gave the whole evening an extra quality. We wish you every success for the future and once again thank you so much for your help and understanding.
Hi Aly. Just a little note to say thank you to your band for doing a fab job at our wedding (6th Oct)! It sounded really professional and you led brilliantly. Best wishes, Rhian.
Just a quick note to say thank you for making our wedding reception so much fun and getting everyone involved in the dancing. Everyone really enjoyed it and even the most unlikely suspects were up dancing and enjoying themselves.
Hi Aly Wow!! Think we're just recovering from all the dancing lol. Had to email just to say thank you, we had a brilliant night and everyone keeps phoning/texting/face booking to say what a fantastic night they had. You and your band are brilliant. Now thinking of another reason to have a party next year haha
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you to you and the band for your great set on Friday. You guys looked and sounded great and lots of people said that they enjoyed the ceilidh and I would definitely recommend you to anyone who asked. All the best, Kathy.
Hello Aly, Hope you are well! Here is a thank you from us for your performance last Saturday. We had great feedback and you were awesome. We would love to have an event like that again. I will send you a list of our next plan of Bistro events so we can sort out some great music!
Thank you so much for last Saturday, everyone had an amazing time at the ceilidh and said how good the band were! Hopefully we will have an occasion to use you again in the future!!
Just a quick note to say a huge thank you to you all for playing at my son's wedding at Allerton Castle on the 17th. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. It was such fun and even those among us with two left feet joined in and had a great time. Many thanks for helping to make it such a special day.
Just to say a massive thank-you. It really made the evening having your band there. Thank-you
Just before we head off for honeymoon, I just wanted to send a note to say a huge thanks for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Everyone had a fantastic evening, and we’re hugely grateful you all stepped in at the last moment. Thank you ever so much for helping make our wedding so special, we’re really grateful.
Just wanted to say a big thank you. You were brilliant at our wedding and loads of freinds said how much they enjoyed it. Will definitely recommend you.
Thank you for last night, it was brilliant. Everyone enjoyed the Ceilidh.
Thanks again from Nicola and myself for last night, everyone had a great time and loved your band!
Just wanted to say what a fantastic evening we had yesterday. Many thanks for making it so memorable.
Hi Aly. Many thanks to you and your colleagues for making the event on the 18th a great success.
Just a short note to say thank you so much to you and your colleagues for a fantastic performance on Saturday night at my birthday party. The comments from my friends and family were amazing and they thought that you were all fabulous and particularly the way you tried to help them look like they knew what they were doing – they loved it. Please pass on my thanks to your colleagues and I would be most happy to recommend you or write up a testimonial for you should you ever need it.
Dear Aly,I just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding last week- you and the band were amazing and you really did make our wedding day a very special day. Everyone has said how much they have enjoyed the ceilidh! Please pass on our thanks to everyone,
You guys where great everyone really enjoyed the evening and appreciated your mc ing and direction. Just invited everyone to like your page and will post something soon with some photos of us all enjoying ourselves. Thanks so much for helping make ur day special and memorable
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you to you and the band for an amazing evening last Saturday. We had a wonderful time, and had suitably achy muscles the next day! Everyone I've spoken to about the party has complimented you guys, not just for the music but also for making everyone at ease and talking through the steps in such a clear (and patient!) manner. Will certainly be recommending Aluinn to others in the future and won't hesitate in asking you to play next time I have an excuse for a ceilidh!
I just wanted to thank you, and the band, for providing such great music for us at the ceilidh on Sunday. We all had a great time and your calling enabled everyone to take part, even if they weren't familiar with the dances. I also like the fact that you play more edgy tunes than many other ceilidh bands around, and your musicianship was much appreciated by many of us in the audience. So, thanks again Aly, and I'll certainly recommend you to any friends looking to have a ceilidh in the future.
Hi Ally A huge thank you to you and the band for making Fiona's wedding so memorable. So many guests commented on your calling out the dances, it made it so much more fun. Those of us who are a little " older" , unable to physically join in, loved the music while watching the young ones having so much fun. Once again many thanks Sheila
We just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you again to you and your band for playing at our wedding yesterday. Many of our guests commented on what a great band you were and some are still recovering this morning from 'Strip the Willow'!!We had a fabulous day and you might now be responsible for turning Vicky into a ceilidh convert!!
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for being such a fabulous ceilidh band and for doing a sterling job of the Address to the Haggis! Honestly you were absolutely fantastic and it was one of the best ceilidh bands I have ever heard! So many people have commented on how good you were. Thank you so much!
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the fab ceilidh on Saturday! It really was great, very talented group of musicians and we will be recommending you!
Hi Aly, Just a quick email to thank you again for the wonderful music at our wedding celebrations on the 20th in Harrogate. The dancing went down so well and we had a lovely evening! I am sorry that I did not get chance to say goodbye at the end of the night. If we are ever lucky enough to have a big party again we will certainly be in touch! Please pass on our thanks to your lovely band.
Hi Aly, Sorry I didn't manage to catch you last night before you went. It was a fantastic day and night topped off by your brilliant band, thank you for being a part of it, everyone seemed to love it. If there is anywhere I can write a review let me know and I will certainly be recommending you to friends and family.
Just to say thankyou for playing at our wedding on 10th September. You did a great iob
Thank you for making our party a great success. All our guests enjoyed the music.
Aly and the band made our wedding Ceilidh enjoyable and accessible for all. We had some people who had been to lots of Ceilidhs and others to none but everyone enjoyed getting involved!
I wanted to thank you for a wonderful evening last Saturday- myself & my fiancé were guests at Mary & Chuck's wedding & had a fantastic evening thanks to you & your band- neither of us are experienced ceilidh dancers but we both had a wonderful time!
Just to say a massive thank you for your hard work on Saturday night. The stream of positive comments about the music and calling has been endless, and we have to agree! You guys were totally professional and really got everyone involved, from the experts from Shetland to the local novices...
