"They were fantastic. Great communication pre arrival, flexible and easy to contact. The band played French cafe music for us during a sit down dinner and then into the ceilidh which was very lively and great fun. The caller had most people up dancing and everyone had a great time. Would highly recommend The London Ceilidh Band."

"This is just a short note to thank you and The London Ceilidh Band for your fantastic playing at our Burns Supper on the 25th of January at Minley Manor. Your 2-hour slot rounded off what was a memorable and very successful function. Everyone has been very complimentary of the band and the way in which the caller managed to get everyone involved. You were certainly a hit amongst the officers and it is a function that will be fondly remembered."

"When Jessie and I sought a ceilidh band for our wedding, we were looking for precisely what you guys provided. People naturally and cheerfully fell into dancing and it all had a lovely cheerful quality. I particularly remember seeing my father beaming as he belted out Auld Lang Syne and the extraordinary joy of all the men rushing into the centre of the circle to shout exuberantly. Many thanks to you and all of The London Ceilidh Band for doing such an excellent job and fitting right into the evening even as I remained unsure of what the timings were going to be. Every time I came over to speak to you or any of the group you were all calm and friendly."
