The TL Ceilidh / Barn Dance Band ref: 4881.5
The TL Ceilidh Band is highly professional and features musicians who have played from Cornwall to Shetland and from Sweden to Australia. The TL Band's key to ceilidh/barn dance success is the ‘no pressure, it’s all about the fun’ approach taken by their caller, and the strong vocal line-up, supported by instrumentation on fiddles, bouzouki, mandolin, guitar and double bass. Prices displayed are for 3 musicians plus caller, but the band is also available up to 5 musicians plus caller to suit style, budget and availability. Several of the musicians are singers, and the caller also plays guitar and ethnic percussion depending on the rest of the line-up.
Since 1999, they have delivered well received performances at many events, from music festivals and clubs to corporate and private events and parties, and with live and recorded appearances on BBC Radio Scotland, Radio 4, local, European and US radio. The band can offer a whole evening in Celtic style with an Irish or Scottish theme. They can also feature a lot of American music. They sing and play tunes during breaks.
|Wedding||"I would not hesitate to recommend the TL Band for a great night. We hired them for our wedding, and were hugely impressed on all levels. Not only are they great musicians, but their caller and band leader was great to deal with and got everyone up on the dance floor totally enjoying themselves. Our friends are still talking about what a great night they had, and I want to thank the band for their fine efforts. Brilliant."|
|50th Birthday Party||I would like to say that the band we booked on Saturday night were brilliant. It was probably the coldest night of the year, and they kept going in very cold conditions, and managed to get everyone dancing and the evening went well. Please pass on my thanks to them for a wonderful evening.|
|Birthday||I have to write and thank you all for making last Saturday evening such a special occasion; we felt very privileged to have such superb musicians playing for us. So many people commented on the excellent music - both dancers and non-dancers - and the dancers all had great fun. Even Kevin, my husband, who never dances really enjoyed himself much to his surprise! - a minor miracle! And the folk singing made such a good ending to the evening.|
|Thank you for a splendid evening on Saturday. We had so much fun and lots of people have suggested we make it an annual event. I think they enjoyed themselves! Please pass on our thanks and compliments to the rest of the musicians. Once again, thanks for a great evening|
|Birthday||I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to the band that came on 30th December for our ceilidh. We had a really great night and the band were absolutely brilliant, really accommodating and made the atmosphere really vibrant. It was a great 40th birthday, thank you!|
|Wedding Anniversary||Thank you so much for playing/calling for our barn dance last night, we were a little anxious about booking a band we'd never heard of over the internet, but the music really was superb and we had a fantastic evening. There were lots of musical friends at our party and many of them commented on the excellent quality of both the vocals and the instruments.|
|Party||Can you please forward my greatest thanks to the band for Saturday evening. They were fantastic!! I heard so many compliments about them all evening - some of my friends are very keen folk dancers and knew what they were talking about. And Alan called with great clarity!|
