Whatever your celebration,

barn dancing for all ages.


Based in Hampshire, we are one of the south of England's leading Ceilidh and Barn Dance Bands and have experience in entertaining at all types of function and all ages - weddings, parties, fund raisers, club/school socials etc, and special themed evenings such Burns Suppers etc.....

More infomation.....

How long do we play for?

We recommend 2 'sets' of dancing of around 1 to 1.5 hours each. We do 1 or 2 dances at a time, with a short piece of interlude music before the next dance(s). If your guests are really enthusiastic, then we can do more dances together.


How do you explain the dances to beginners?

All our dances are easy to pick up, and our caller will 'walk' your guests through the dance before we do it to music. Each dance lasts around 10 minutes, including the quick walk through.


What space do the band need?

We can usually adapt our band setup for the space available. Ideally, an area of 6m x 3m is comfortable. A stage, if available, does help the caller.
