We booked the Worried Men of Gower to entertain us at our silver wedding anniversary party. We had a hundred guests ranging from 10 months to 87 years old. From the very start of the afternoon at 2.pm The Worried Men of Gower entertained us! Prior to the engagement we discussed options and any “special requests”. They were very happy to be given numbers they had not previously heard of and research the music for us. Very much appreciated. The caller kept us all on our toes in the most encouraging way, and made it easy for novices to understand the moves and enjoy the dancing. Very accomplished musicians that played enthusiastically all afternoon playing a variety of genre. Very personable and friendly group that I would thoroughly recommend for any party of people that appreciate good music. Thank you.

Really enjoyed having the worried men of gower to play for my dad's birthday bash. It was a garden party and we wanted a nice folk vibe with some songs that we could sing along with and tunes to get the party going. One of the band gave me a call the week before just to make sure everything was going to plan. The band were really friendly and professional, even learning the songs we had asked for and they managed to get everyone in the party spirit. My dad was very happy and the band really helped to make the occasion.
