"The Big Shoogle were absolutely fantastic and brought exactly the kind of energy and generous, playful hosting to the ceilidh - that really makes them special on celebratory occasions - that I was hoping for, and more! I could not have been more satisfied with their playing on the evening, their professionalism and communication before the event: I'd thoroughly recommend them to anyone planning a ceilidh hoping for the same. Many, many thanks for all that you brought to the night!"

Jiggered Ceilidh Band
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Jiggered were absolutely incredible at our wedding at Neidpath Castle in June. With a very diverse mix of people, most of whom had never even heard of Ceilidh before, the band made it seem like the room were experts (after a wee bit of encouragement)! We had the most fantastic time and all of our guests absolutely LOVED it. A special thanks as well to the band who with only a couple weeks notice learned our first dance song and played it perfectly. We couldn't ask for anything more from Jiggered. We had a packed danc efloor all night with huge smiles all round. 🕺💃 Absolutely recommended if you want an epic night! Thanks so much to Chris & Crew!"
