ABOUT US

Formed in Glasgow in 2012 we are a ceilidh band with a twist – we like to modernise the traditional ceilidh experience by throwing in a variety of old and new pop songs alongside an extensive collection of traditional Scottish, Irish, American and Canadian ceilidh music. We have even been known to compose a few tunes ourselves!

 

Be it a Wedding, Birthday, Grad Ball, Charity Fund-Raiser, or any other public or private event, we can fulfil your every ceilidh need. We offer a wide range of ceilidh dances, and don’t worry if you can’t tell a do-si-do from a pas de basque, we have an experienced caller to keep all the dancers right! With our line up of four charismatic and experienced musicians, and a 5th dedicated light and sound engineer we're guaranteed to make your event unique and special.

What Other People Have Said...

We cannot thank you enough for playing at Fin's party last night. Your band were even more amazing than at our reunion. Everyone absolutely raved about the ceilidh and lots of newbies very keen to repeat the experience.

The Veritable Ceilidh Club played for us at our wedding and they were absolutely amazing. Everyone has been commenting on how good they were at walking us through the dances, and also the vibe they created with the banter between the band and our guests - absolutely perfect!

Jack is great with the communication prior to the wedding and always replied to messages really quick which kept us both very calm and made us feel like we were in safe hands!

 I wanted to say just how perfect you made our day. You were fantastic, so professional and such tremendous fun, a gift of a combination. Superb music with seamless guidance on the steps, all beautifully judged so that everything was confidence building and inclusive. Please thank everyone in the VCC for being so terrific.

Me and Jamie just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you all for being the most amazing ceilidh band!! We had soo many people saying throughout the whole evening how amazing the band was and the best ceilidh band they had ever heard! All my family are English and they were all able to follow your instructions easily and the dance floor never felt empty which is definitely a sign of a good night!"

Just a wee email to say thank you so, so much for Saturday. We had the most incredible time and the ceilidh dancing was definitely one of my highlights. I was genuinely unable to walk properly until about Wednesday because my calf muscles were so worn out my the ceilidh!! So much fun!! You also made the whole booking/arranging so easy. Big thanks for making the effort to play the songs we requested too!! We’ll no doubt see you at another wedding in the future- our guests at the wedding were loving you guys!!"

It was an absolute pleasure having you! You were fantastic, from your improvised stage in the woods to your enthusiasm in the barn - inspiring even the shy to get up dancing! Thank-you so very much.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW MUCH DO YOU COST?

Every quote is individually tailored to meet your needs, and we offer discounts for charities and student events, so please be sure to tell us as much as you can about your event, including the location and how long you'd like us to play, in the contact form at the bottom of the page.

HOW FAR ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL?

There is no limit to the distance we're willing to travel! Although based in Glasgow we've performed ceilidhs from Cumbria to Caithness, but if your ceilidh is particularly far away and ends particularly late, we will have to ask for accommodation. All the details of this will be included in your personal quote, so please feel free to contact us for more details.

I'D LIKE YOU TO PLAY A SONG BUT IT ISN'T ON YOUR SONG LIST?

If you have any special music requests, be it your favourite pop song or a unique ceilidh dance, just request it, we'd love to perform it for you! Although not every song can be made to fit the ceilidh rhythms, most can be manipulated somehow, and we're happy to perform any song as a straight cover if you would like.

I'D LIKE A COMBINATION OF CEILIDH AND DISCO?

If you want to hire our sound equipment for dancing and/or background music before or after the ceilidh then please ask us! Alternatively if you've also hired a DJ then we're always happy to share sound equipment and work with them for smooth transitions between ceilidh music and disco music.
