Davinia & Gareth (Farnham Estate, Cavan, Feb 17)

Hey guys, Gareth and I would just like to thank you all so much for Friday night. You guys were amazing and we had so many compliments from our Scottish guests. Also the DJ was class, really kept the night going and dance floor filed and made the night perfect for the final dances of the night. Thanks

Andrew & Laura (Ballygally Castle, July 2016)

First of all, sorry for taking so long to reply to you! In terms of general feedback, we both absolutely loved it and so many of the guests commented on how good you guys were. You really got the night started and ensured the dance floor was full at all times and that all guests intermingled. Safe to say the dance floor stayed full the whole night after the ceilidh and people continued to mix and get to know other people - a lot of which is thanks to you all. The booking process was great. Very simple. And I really appreciated you allowing our friend to sing the first dance. Thank you again for catering for that! We thought the price was perfect, and great for all we received. As I've alluded to above, the band were really great and together with the caller not only created a great atmosphere but also meant at least half of us knew what we were doing some of the time! We enjoyed the whole thing. It would be hard to pick a best bit - we just loved the atmosphere created and that it encouraged everyone to get up on the floor. Thanks so much, and we would definitely recommend you to any friends who have a ceilidh! Andrew and Laura

Just wanted to say what a great show you put on for the wedding on Saturday. The guests loved it - even those of us who can barely walk let alone dance. So, thank-you, you added to a very memorable occasion. Phil (Emily's dad)

James & Rachel (Killyhevlin, Aug 16)

It was very simple to book our slot with Haste to the Wedding online and the band were very patient and friendly whenever we made an enquiry. The price was very competitive and they delivered on the day. Funny, chilled and motivational caller, tight set and authentic appearance. Our crowd was a mix of Scots and Irish so they dances were a bit of both - perfect! All the best for the future.

Virginia & Robin (Brookhall, Oct 2016)

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding on Friday! The ceilidh was just fantastic and we've lost count of the number of guests telling us how much they enjoyed it- it really did make the evening! Please pass our sincere thanks to the rest of the band. The DJ (Mark Dobbin) was also excellent and was a great way to finish the celebrations. You guys really are the best ceilidh band in the world! Many thanks again, Virginia and Robin

Philippa (Dalky, Dublin, Feb 2016)

Hi Pete Wonderful to have you on Saturday night. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening and commented on how great the music was. It was a real fun evening and Colin who did the calling came in for high praise. Warm, patient, humorous and put us through our paces well. It was everything I could have wished for and more to enter our 7th decade with vim and vigour. I loved seeing our daughter and her cousin being twirled around. There was something for everyone including my 3 month old granddaughter who seemed to relish all the action too. It was a great night and I would love to go back over it all again in slow motion and savour every moment. Your contribution was a major factor in its success. Thankyou all so much Best wishes Philippa

Heather (Culloden, Dec 2015)

Hello I just want to thank you all so much for providing the entertainment for my daughter's wedding on New Year's Eve . It was absolutely fantastic , and a great way to get our party started. Everyone really enjoyed the Ceilidh and I thought it was a great way for both families to get to know one another. I wish we could do it all again because it was over in a flash. Best wishes and continued success for 2016. Many thanks again Kind regards Heather

John & Helene (Ballymena, Jan 2016)

Thank you so much for a great night last night. The band was fantastic.  John had a ball, and we made so many happy memories. Everyone loved the ceilidh. Colin was brilliant as the caller, and directing us. Everyone has commented on how great you all were. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the band.
Thanks again
