"As our wedding was the second time round for both of us we wanted something less loud (and boring) than the traditional disco. We decided to try a ceilidh in the hopes that it would appeal to a wider age range. We choose Paragon Ceilidh Band from the many bands offered by Fix the Music. They seemed professional, flexible and good value for money. They were all of that and more. What a fantastic group! They were vibrant and got everyone on their feet from five-year-olds to seventy-five-year-olds. They varied the time slots and gave more than expected. They were versatile and provided other genres of music as required allowing oldies to smooch or jive and youngies to bop. The caller & singer was excellent. She had a stunning voice as a singer but as a caller she was encouraging, clear and easy to follow and got everyone on their feet. She helped generate so much energy. Everyone thought it was one of the best evenings ever. Paragon Ceilidh Band is a band that we highly, highly recommend."

"Hi Simon, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at my 40th birthday party on Saturday night. You and the band were absolutely brilliant! We’ve had so many positive comments about the music and your caller was amazing!!! The way she managed to coordinate the clueless ‘English folk’ was brilliant! Definitely a night to remember thanks to you all! Kind regards, Emma and Ed Lindley."

"Paragon Ceilidh Band played at my 50th birthday party in Manningtree, Essex on 9th February. They were absolutely BRILLIANT - the music was superb, we all loved the dancing and Danica was fabulous at getting us all involved and steering us in the right direction (which believe me, can’t have been easy). I can’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you Paragon Ceilidh Band for an absolutely wonderful evening - the icing on the (birthday) cake."

"Paragon Ceilidh Band were absolutely fantastic! We never had an empty dance floor and the band made sure our wedding evening was the fun and wonderful party we always hoped we’d have. The comments from our guests have been brilliant."
