Latest reviews of our Christmas Party Ceilidh Bands in Perth

Staffin Island Ceilidh Band
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"I would just like to say a huge thankyou to yourself and the Staffin Island Ceilidh Band who played for us on Saturday night. They were amazing and everyone I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and probably danced more than usual. Even the manager of the venue we hired said they were the best band he'd ever had playing there, and he may look to book you for some of their own functions in future. They got everyone dancing, and managed to keep most of us doing the correct moves 😀. They were such a big hit, and it made our special night go down an absolute storm. Thankyou once again. "

"Thank you so much to Rock and Reel for being such an important part of our big day! We had great communication from Duncan from the point of booking and were able to discuss specific music requests and change things around. The band were really flexible and a couple of them came along to play us out of our ceremony before returning that evening to play the ceilidh in the hotel. Ourselves and our guests had an absolute blast attempting the ceilidh dancing (we aren’t from Scotland!). When Duncan did a fiddle performance walking around the room our friend commented that ‘it was like being in a film’! We would definitely recommend you book the band for your wedding or any big occasion. Thanks again boys! "

FAQs about hiring Christmas Party Ceilidh Bands in Perth

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What kind of ceilidh bands are there?

There are basically two types of ceilidh band: traditional instrumental bands, and ceilidh cover bands. A traditional ceilidh band will perform Scottish folk tunes without a singer. Importantly, a traditional band will include a caller: they'll announce the dances, shout instructions to beginners, and get everyone involved in the revelry! In contrast, a ceilidh cover band will mix the folk tunes with modern pop covers. They'll have a singer, and provide a wide range of music for all to enjoy: young and old.

Which parts of an event or wedding will the ceilidh band play at?

In the spirit of leaving the best until last, the ceilidh band will usually wrap up celebrations, providing an exciting musical finale for your special day. The band caller will ensure you and your guests know the moves for each dance, giving everyone the opportunity to get involved. Plus, if you haven't had the chance to say hello to everyone during the course of the day, you might just find yourself dancing with them before it's over! Ceilidh dances can be pretty tiring, so having it at the end of the day is a smart choice - your guests will certainly thank you for it!

Will I need to provide the ceilidh band with any equipment?

Professional ceilidh bands come fully kitted-out with all the equipment needed to get the dancing underway, including amplification and a mixing desk. If your wedding venue is regularly used for live music, they will likely have a dedicated in-house PA sound system - in this case, the band may not need to bring their own amplification.

How much space will I need for ceilidh dancing?

The more space, the better! Ceilidh dancing takes up a lot more room on the dance floor than your typical disco. Other than that: make sure table are removed (encourages dancing!), seats are available to the side, and there are no obstacles near the dance floor. Broken bones ain't craic.

Do traditional ceilidh bands take requests?

Not usually. Unless you have a specific Scottish or Irish tune in mind, the band will normally play a pre-planned set, designed to perfection and gleaned from years of experience. If you have a special song in mind, make sure you tell the band well in advance. It might just get added to their repertoire!
