Fantastic wedding band

I have hired it鈥檚 no reel ceilidh band twice now, for my parents 60th birthday party and then my wedding. Fantastic ceilidh band, music is full of life. Tom reads the crowd perfectly and knows when to walk through dances for those that don鈥檛 know the dance. Played our own playlists through the sound system during the buffet and for disco dancing at my wedding, and DJ鈥檇 for a period at my parents 60th which is great to have a bit of ceilidh and a bit of disco. Very organised and prompt email replies. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Had the band at my engagement party and right from the get go I was impressed. comunicating with tom was easy and he was very accomidating. They arrived sharp and set up quietly , the music was top notch and calling was easily understood. Since then I have been to another event where they had played and again it was to the same high standard it was before. I would recomend them to anyone looking to have a good band at a great price really worth it.

We hired 'It's No Reel' for our wedding reception in May 2013, and were absolutely delighted with their professionalism, musicianship and the all round show. We appreciated their promptness and efficiency at responding to our queries and questions prior to wedding, and in fact, hiring them was one of the most stress-free and easiest parts of planning our wedding. Our guests were a mixture of seasoned Ceilidhers and complete novices, and everyone commented on how good the band were and what a great evening of dancing it was (the music, dancing and calling were excellent). As someone who took part in many Ceilidh's as a teenager, I have high expectations of what a ceilidh band should sound like, and these were met and far exceeded by Tom and the boys. We would heartily recommend 'It's No Reel' to anyone planning a Ceilidh no matter what the occasion. Thanks for a fabulous and memorable evening of dancing.

"We had a wedding party which included visitors from Australia, several European countries, the south of England as well as Scots. It's No Reel made sure that everyone had the chance to learn the dances and the great atmosphere they generated made sure we all had a fantastic time. Their take on the progressive barn Dance was very entertaining. Tom could not have been more helpful with the arrangements beforehand, as well as on the night itself, and everyone was very complimentary about the music." Sue Haddow, Wedding (mother-of-the-Groom)
