Dear Mary, A huge thankyou for all the fun you and your team brought to my birthday party . Everyone enjoyed it immensely. Thankyou for leading us big and small through the dancing and for choosing those that suited our ability!! Those who did not dance enjoyed the music and it created a fantastic atmosphere.
My daughter has asked if I can have a ceilidh for every birthday and if not can she!!  - KC  - June 24

Still Reeling were a fabulous ceilidh band who provided excellent entertainment for my Mum's 60th birthday party. They were easy to book with & provided clear communication throughout. Can't recommend them enough.  - CU - April 2024


We booked the band for our wedding last month and it was the BEST decision, a really fun and lively addition to the day. The music and dancing was enjoyed by everyone, even those who don't usually dance. The band are amazing and have dances everyone can join in with. I would 100% recommend booking Still Reeling for your event! - CR  - March 2024

Absolutely amazing! I hired Still Reeling for my sister's hen party and I couldn't have wished for a better night! Myself, my sister and all the guests were very impressed and had the best time. The band themselves are very talented and the caller was very patient with us! They read the room perfectly and timed the breaks well. The dances chosen were perfect and very inclusive to the ones who had never experienced Ceilidh dancing before. Couldn't have asked for better communication when booking the band too! Would highly recommend Still Reeling to anyone and can't thank them enough for our experience with them! :)  -  ZL - June 2023

Still Reeling Ceilidh & Barn Dance Band played for our Golden Wedding Anniversary. That doesn't mean there were a load of 'old' people at our party. They were the best Band that many seasoned barn dance people have heard. Every dance had a FULL dance floor without any encouragement. A fabulous night was enjoyed by all. Thank you so much Still Reeling for a fabulous night!! Recommend them without any reservation.  -  P and J

Still Reeling played for our daughter's wedding at the end of April and everyone had a marvellous time. Their musicianship was excellent as were the caller's instructions (it really helped that he came out into the hall to explain and demonstrate); throughout the whole of the evening the dance floor was packed with young and old alike having a great time. The pre wedding correspondence with Mary was excellent too and she answered any questions I had. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a ceilidh band for an event  - KB

Mary and the band were great at our daughter's wedding celebration. They were friendly and professional and very flexible and adaptable. We had a wide range of ages taking part and the caller and the band were great with everyone and particularly the younger children, making sure that they could take part in the dances. It was very relaxed and enjoyable and they really contributed to a great family celebration. We'd definitely recommend them  -  SB

Still Reeling did a great set for our daughters' naming ceremony. We had the band of 4, including Paul the caller who also played and sang. It was a great mix of dances, suitable for all ages and abilities, tunes and a couple of songs too. They were brilliant at reacting to the crowd knowing when to wait for the next dance and when to push on to get dancers up. Really enjoyed the music and the dancing. Thank you x  -  TB 2022

Still Reeling were the perfect band for our event. The different band sizes on offer meant that we were able to choose the amount of instruments that suited our size and budget. I had never been to a ceilidh before but they clearly explained how it worked and what they needed to set up. The caller was great and guided the group of mostly beginner's through progressively more and more complex dances. We had a mix of ages and the dancing got everyone mixing and having fun. The band had a good sense of when to let people rest and played traditional music. Everyone had a great time and I would highly recommend Still Reeling to anyone considering a ceilidh. - SF

We are so glad we booked Still Reeling for our wedding party. The band are super talented and it's a great way to get everyone up and moving together. Loved the music and loved the experience. I definitely recommend it for any event.  -  PS

Fabulous and talented group . If you want something different for a party or any celebration consider Still Reeling . Gets everyone involved & participating. Such a fun night.  -  SW

This band were amazing, we had a lot of young kids at our party and they did a great job of picking dances that were suitable for them and keeping them engaged and being patient with us. The were also great at communication, and super friendly. - HJ

We had a brilliant time. It was just perfect. You are so good at being flexible and reading the room to work out when people are ready to dance. / when to do a tune/ song. It was perfect. T and R

 I don't even know where to start! Still Reeling were amazing, they got everyone up to dance, the communication was brilliant. I honestly cannot explain how brilliant they were, they made the whole night fantastic with a variety of dancing/singing which everyone could get involved with - KG

A big thank you to you and Still Reeling. We and our guests had a fabulous time at our wedding, May 2023, listening and dancing to the music.  Mary and her colleagues were so professional, so helpful and such good musicians. A fantastic night.”

We booked Still Reeling for a 50th party last weekend and they were fab!! They kicked the party off in style, getting guests of all ages up dancing and having super fun (not to mention good exercise!). The band were professional, friendly and great musicians. Their communication was always speedy, thorough and attentive. Thankyou. - NS

My Husband and I wanted a fun and lively reception for our wedding that everybody could join in. "Still Reeling" played a fantastic two hour ceilidh for us and our guests. All the dances were great fun and even the most reluctant of our guests felt encouraged to join in! The band also kindly provided a microphone for our speeches which was a great help. Thank you very much to the band for giving us such a memorable wedding reception. - GS

The Still Reeling Ceilidh and Barn Dance Band supplied the music for our church social. Their caller, Paul, taught everybody the dances and kept everything going. By the end of the evening some of us were exhausted!!! The music was lively and the dancing was fun but not so overwhelming that it wasn’t possible to chat with friends and strangers if we needed a rest! It was generally agreed that a good time had been had by one and all; old and young; even those who never set foot on the dance floor! Thank you - S

 Dear Mary and Still Reeling, I would like to say a huge thank you to you all for providing the perfect evening entertainment for mine and M's wedding on 14th July. We had a fantastic time and so did many of our guests. You were brilliant at organising us, taking into consideration the language difficulties faced by some of the guests. My aunt even commented that having a Ceilidh was a stroke of genius and that every wedding should have one. I cannot praise you highly enough for rounding off our special day in such spectacular style. Thank you so much, - H and M

It was a great evening and we’ve had lots of very positive comments about the band and how good you were and how well you fitted in to the occasion, so thanks very much for that. Having parties like that is not something we do that often, but we’d certainly be happy to recommend you to anyone else we know if they are looking for a band. Please pass on our thanks to all the band. - S

Dear Mary, Paul and team, Thank you for the excellent way you lead our party on Friday night.

At the New Years Eve Ceilidh Still Reeling Ceilidh band expertly and professionally treated us to a wide range of wonderful ceilidh dance music. This is a family band and all very accomplished musician playing together. They looked just the part, dressed very smartly for our New Year celebration. Everyone was up on the floor dancing to their rich variety of jigs, reels, polkas, slides, hornpipes and waltzes. This is just the band to make any Ceilidh a success. We all send our thanks for a brilliant evening. - V& R

Thanks Still Reeling! Had a fantastic time at the Ceilidh. Very professional musicians and the dance suited all ages and abilities perfectly. - A

Thank you "Still Reeling" for making our birthday ceilidh go so well. Paul's excellent calling meant that we novices managed all the dances. We would definitely book them again and cannot strongly recommend them. - S

We were privileged to be guests at H and S's 60th birthday party on Saturday night and we were roundly entertained by the incredible Still Reeling. It is just impossible to sit down when these guys are doing their 'thing'. Absolutely brilliant.  - D and J

Many thanks to ‘Still Reeling’ for the spectacular performance at our family ceilidh. Totally professional musicians and excellent calling from Paul. What a patient man! He’d have found it easier herding cats. We had an excellent selection of dances and all our guests had a brilliant night. - H
