Cats Claw stood out in the promo presentations. We started out with high anticipation.... we ended with expectations exceeded! All-round 5 stars for the practical, professional, and logistical stuff. 6+ stars for personality and friendliness:) 10 stars for the reciprocal engagement with the floor and the mood. Iv'e worked at festival stages with ceilidh bands (I booked CC for this wedding) and CC are a group that just kept giving. Be clear about your needs and they will meet them. The feedback and accolades from the wedding couple and guests were great... and also some neighbours who listened in! Job done... thanks Cats Claw

Thank you to Cat's Claw who got everyone up and dancing at our work's Christmas ceilidh last weekend. They were professional and easy to communicate with regarding the arrangements prior and lovely to have at our event. They have a great upbeat tempo and a true celtic sound. Everyone had a fabulous time.

We just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for the amazing music you played at our wedding on Saturday. All of our guests had an absolutely brilliant time and we have had so much positive feedback about the ceilidh. It was so so much fun we loved every second! Please could you pass on our thanks to the rest of the band members as well? When we get our photographs through we will send over any good ones from the ceilidh!
