About Rock and Reel

A ceilidh band on steroids. We'll have you dancing and singing all night long
Ceilidh band
Public liability insurance of £5 million

We are a three-piece band covering all the standard ceilidh dances, as well as a number of not so common but easy to learn dances (especially useful where there a number of people not used to ceilidh-ing!). We will talk through all the dances (if required), using easy to follow instructions (and humour), and demonstrations, where required. We will happily take requests through the night and are happy to work with yourself in advance to ensure that we cover all your favourites. Our usual set up includes accordion, fiddle and guitar. This means that we can not only play for dancing but also sing a number of Scottish and popular songs, allowing for a variety through the night and engagement with the audience in other ways. We will work with yourself for the key parts of the night, such as the first dance and how you would like to close the evening.

"Just wanted to send you a wee email to say that the band were amazing - it was such a brilliant evening!! We loved it and everyone thought you were guys were incredible! I could not believe how many people got up and danced, it was fantastic! It worked very well with you going round and helping everyone with the steps! The caller was fab as well! If anything we needed a bigger dance space!

Thanks so much to the boys for a truly memorable ceilidh, what a superb band you are. I literally danced my socks off (quite a feat without removing my shoes)
