About Rejigged Ceilidh Band

Ceilidh band
Ramsgate
Public liability insurance of £10 million
We play for Barn Dances, English Ceilidhs and Scots Ceilidhs. We come with our prize winning caller of international reputation.

As the name suggests, our musicians have come form a variety of other folk bands. Each member has in excess of 10 years experience playing folk music in different bands. Likewise, our caller has many years experience calling for dances and is both a folk dance teacher and he writes new dances for barn dances and Ceilidhs. This means that our dances will be different from any other band and likewise, the music.

Song list

City of New Orleans
Hello Mary Lou
I'm a Hillbilly Girl
Cotton eyed Joe
After all this time
almost persuaded
Always on my mind
Before he cheats
A boy named sue
Don't it make my brown eyes blue
Gentle on my mind
Go rest high on the mountain
Grandpa tell me about the god old days
Help me make it through the night
Another somebody done somebody wrong
The highwayman
Hold me
I hope you dance
The caller has had you dancing
I want to join a 5-piece folk band
You're still the one
You decorated my life
White horse
Where've you been
Where were you when the world stopped turning
A very special love song

We hired this band for our church 25th anniversary. The band were fun and professional and also helped with the little ones who wanted to join in. A very enjoyable evening for everyone. Thank you so much for a great evening.

We had a wonderful time at our wedding with Chris and the Rejigged band. The musicians and caller were very skilled and catered for a range of tastes and abilities. Throughout the run up to the wedding, they were extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful, making the planning process much easier. Thank you to all involved. Kind regards, Helen
