The BM Barn Dance/Ceilidh Band

The BM Ceilidh band is a small, compact but perfectly formed band comprising of Mike on accordion and Gerry on guitar with Dave doing the calling. Each band member is a singer in their own right adding to the variety of performance. The band comes with its own PA and Public Liability. They are available for a variety of events as well as dances.

They will always turn up and provide a night steeped in traditional music and entertainment.
Caller Dave is incredibly patient at giving instructions to those who are novice dancers and even goes out onto the dance floor to help people with the dance steps. They cater for all abilities, young and old! He encourages people to get up to dance without being too intrusive and has a good sense of humour which makes people laugh and enjoy the night.

With tunes from the North East and the continent of Europe, old and new, dances from Scotland, Ireland, England, America, Isle of Man and every dance called in a clear and sensitive way you are guaranteed to enjoy yourself.

Testimonials

Community Event"I’d just like to say a massive thank you to Dave, Mike and Gerry. This is the third event that we have booked them for and once again it was a massive success."
WeddingWe had an absolutely fantastic evening of entertainment hosted by Dave, Gerry and Mike. They had us up and dancing, and we had a barrel of laughs throughout - even the sceptics who came to the party wondering what a Ceilidh Band is were very impressed. I strongly recommend booking the band for events and hope we cross paths again in future!
25th Wedding Anniversary I just wanted to say how fantastic the BM Ceiligh band were at our 25th wedding anniversary party on the 3rd of September 2016. Dave, Mike and Gerry entertained everyone all night and got us all up dancing. Dave was extremely patient (he had to be, most of us were hopeless), he gave instructions from the stage and also showed us on the dance floor. Everyone had a really great time and just laughed all evening. I would highly recommend them and wish we could do it all again!
Wedding"Words cannot describe how pleased we are about the exceptional entertainment provided by Dave, Mike and Gerry at our wedding in Durham. Their fantastic repertoire truly added a special and unique touch to our evening, and provided many of our guests from all corners the world a wonderful introduction to British folk music. Not to mention how patient and friendly their caller Dave was especially in teaching the dances to our guests, many of whom had never danced a Ceilidh before. In addition, their cheerfulness and easygoing disposition really helped us and our guests have a marvellous time. To this day, our guests still constantly praise the ceilidh music provided during the evening. Thank you so much and we would recommend them over and over again to anyone seeking quality entertainment for any event."
