Ceilidh Storm DJ service

With our disco package, you aren't limited to just the "standard tunes" that get played at every birthday, school disco or social club.

Our team can, of course, play party tunes, but can also go a good bit further.

Our extensive catalogue includes music from many genres including reggae, hip-hop, house music, funk, ska, R&B, classic pop, rock, garage and of course, the current top 40.

If there are certain songs that you want us to play, then we will play them. Equally, if there are songs that you dislike, we won't play them. It's that simple.

We also offer fully or partly customised set-lists. Simply give us a list of songs you want playing a few days before the event and we'll give you a 100% guarantee that they will be played.

No matter how obscure or unusual the song – this service ensures you get what you want, every time.

"A HUGE THANK YOU so much from David and me for the most AMAZING time at our wedding. YOU WERE WONDERFUL! Loved you all, such delightful company to have within our family and friends you really helped make the day so special for everyone. We all had so much fun! Really loved the guitar riffs, the ceilidh, the disco, Fiona’s vocals and the cornet solo, and the – well, you get the idea. The dancefloor was quite literally jumping, and with everyone from ballroom dancers to fashionistas, rock fans & festival organisers in the room you managed to totally wow and woo us all. We had to dash off a bit at the end of the night as our taxi had been waiting some while whilst we did all the good-byes, so I wanted to be sure and let you know how massively we appreciated all your brilliant hard work and great sense of fun on the day, and professionalism in the build up to it all as well. Can’t recommend you highly enough, and wish you every success in future, and hope to cross paths with you again someday. Please do keep in touch!"

"“Ceilidh Storm were sensational. An authentic ceilidh experience with caller and demonstration. Also modern & youthful sound with the hits and some personal requests. They really got the balance. Guests' age range of 2-92 and everyone enjoyed it. Bit pricey but they worked hard for it and were easy to organise and communicate with. I would choose them again in a heartbeat."

We have been looking at lots of bands who all seem similar – what makes you different?Our versatility is our biggest strength. We believe there is no other band in Scotland who have such a varied setlist as well as an integrated professional DJ and first class Ceilidh set. We are fully live and do not use backing tracks or sequencers, we are professional at all times and very flexible to ensure that our performance meets your requirements. With Ceilidh Storm, you do not need to compromise on anything.
How much do you charge?Our fee is based on the details of your function – exact timings, venue location, whether you require the DJ service etc. Please give us as much information as possible when you enquire and we’ll respond promptly with a personalised quote.
Where are you based and how far will you travel?Ceilidh Storm are based in Scotland with our musicians all living in different areas. As such the majority of our bookings are for venues in Scotland typically St Andrews, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee, Stirling, Inverness & Aberdeen. However, we're happy to consider requests to travel further afield – please enquire with us for further details. Please be aware that this may incur additional travelling expenses.
Does the band have PAT certificates and public liability insurance?Of course - and we’ll be happy to provide the necessary documents should your venue require.
What is your line-up?Consisting of 3 multi-instrumentalists and a knockout lead singer, the band line-up will vary to suit each type of song. Our positions consist of Lead Vocals (female), Keyboards/Accordion/Lead Vocals (Male), Drums/Percussion with backing vocals and Guitar/Bass guitar with backing vocals.
What happens during your break?During our break, we will provide a selection of lively background music to entertain your guests. We are also happy for your own iPod to be plugged into our system for this section of the evening.
Can we choose the setlist?We have a wealth of experience and as such most clients are happy for us to choose the songs. If there are any songs in our setlist that are particular favourites, let us know and we'll be happy to include them in our performance.
What will you be wearing?All band members will be dressed smartly to suit the occasion. If you feel that casual wear would be more appropriate, please just let us know.
Do we need to provide anything else for you?Playing at venues across Scotland often involves lots of driving and very late nights. As such, any refreshments you provide will be gratefully received. Most clients are happy for us to eat from any evening buffet that is served. We really appreciate this! Your venue should also be happy to provide a changing room for us free of charge.
What happens if one of you is ill?We have highly experienced and professional stand-ins for all positions in the band. A large group of musicians play and rehearse regularly and are available at short notice. Rest assured, we have never cancelled a performance and the quality of musicianship is never compromised. Most clients would never be able to spot if we have a stand-in musician playing with us.
Do we need to hire a separate DJ?We have our own integrated and fully professional DJ that can perform after we have finished or between our live sets. This means one sound system and a continuous flow of music throughout the night.
Our venue is quite small - how much space do you need?Ceilidh Storm can perform with or without staging, indoors and outdoors (covered). We can condense into a fairly small space but do need some additional space for our PA Speakers and lighting. In addition, we require at least two 13A sockets to power our PA and Lights safely.
What happens when you arrive?Given clear access to the stage/performance area, it takes the band around 40 minutes to set up and sound check. Any details you can provide us with regarding parking and unloading will be gratefully received and will help to ensure the set-up process takes place as quickly as possible with minimal disruption to the event.
Will you learn our first dance?We will happily play any dance of your choosing, provided it suits our instrumentation. Usually 2-3 weeks notice is plenty for us to learn and rehearse the song for you. There is no additional fee for this.
