About Beast Before Midnight Ceilidh and Covers Band

Ceilidh band
Best Before Midnight are One of Scotland's leading Ceilidh&Covers Band are available for weddings and all functions in Scotland & N.England

One of Scotland finest ceilidh & Wedding bands ,Best Before Midnight combines the musical experience and knowledge of five talented musicians to produce a unique sound using an eclectic mix of traditional and modern ceilidh music, giving the music a unique Celtic-fusion twist, with funky and syncopated rhythms. Many of our ceilidh tunes have been composed in a neo-traditional style by band members, and when added to our array of purely traditional tunes, this makes for the interesting and unexpected sets which ceilidh dancers can’t help but love! The band members in Best Before Midnight have all had experience playing in different bands, some with many years’ experience together prior to forming and creating the fresh and exciting new sound of Best Before Midnight. Best Before Midnight are more than just a ceilidh band however… Our sets are tailored on the spot to meet the needs of the particular set of guests at a wedding or event. Often, once into the swing of our ceilidh music and dances, guests don’t want to stop. At other times we may find guests need a little break from ceilidh and we will slip into a set of polished pop classics to change the mood. No two gigs are the same, and as each night unfolds we often change our mix of ceilidh and covers to suit the night and keep as many of your guests on the dance floor as possible, usually culminating in a manic Orkney reel then Loch Lomond or Auld Lang Syne to finish. Whatever your occasion or mood, Best Before Midnight can provide a mix of music to suit. We can also perform the odd piece of Celtic folk/funk/rock between dances if we feel guests need a breather, and just want to enjoy listening to some beautiful music. Our ceilidh caller Gillian is second to none, have you read her profile on the site? Ex-three times senior Scottish Highland Dancing champion, teacher of the art with many champions of her own, including senior Scottish and British champions, trained choreographer and composer. Gillian has ceilidh called all over the globe while touring with her own dance group, The Ballochleam Highland Dancers. Gillian ensures that those who have never done a ceilidh dance in their lives still have a ball, and that the “experts” don’t get bored waiting until she organises the beginners, a difficult balance to achieve.
