"very pleased and would recommend"


Jiggerty played at our wedding and we are really pleased they did so. Many of the guests seemed to really enjoy doing the ceilidh and it was nice to have a lot of our guests up and involved. Overall played a part in a special day, very pleased and would recommend Chris, Aug 2017 ( Facebook review)




"best ever Barn Dance"


Thank you for Saturday evening. We really enjoyed it. Many guests have comment really positively including “best ever Barn Dance”. One of our granddaughters even went as far as it was her “best thing ever!”. So we appreciate the lovely way you did it. The dance with the bride and groom choosing a partner was also lovely Stewart, July 2017




"really enjoyable evening"


Thanks again for providing such great music and calling for a really enjoyable evening. It was good to see all the different groups at the party joining in together.... There were some people dancing that I have known for years and never seen get up before. We certainly will look to find a reason for a future party for a repeat performance. Paul, Feb 2018 (daughter's engagement party)




"calling was fantastic"


Our guests absolutely loved the Ceilidh, and were dancing their socks off (as I'm sure you saw). One of our main criteria for an excellent reception was that everyone was dancing, and you made sure that they were! The calling was fantastic - I'm sure it isn't the first or last time you've had to work with an enthusiastic but not entirely attentive (!) crowd, yet so many people commented personally to us that the instructions were crystal clear and helped them to get the dances right. Several guests said it was the best Ceilidh they had ever been to, including someone who has been to four this year! We will be recommending you to everyone! Abbie & Max, July 2018 (Wedding)




"Awesome band"

"The dances were explained so well...and the music was so infectious"


Thank you all for such a wonderful performance...You made it a perfect evening...Everybody, including those who were terrified of the idea of dancing, had a brilliant time. Lots of novice Ceilidh dancers are now hooked. The dances were explained so well...and the music was so infectious that I think maybe only 3 people DIDN'T dance!

thank you for the brilliant performance you put on for our wedding...A number of our musical friends, some of whom play in bands themselves, remarked how good you were.
