The Barn Dance Band

This is one of the busiest Barn Dance / Ceilidh bands in the UK. The band are based in Bedfordshire and travel nationwide. They regularly perform at Birthday Parties, Corporate Events, Conferences, Product Launches, University Balls and Charity events as well as Festivals and Public Dances, however they specialise in weddings. Imagine the accessibility of traditional dance music combined with power of rock and funk music. Unlike many ‘electric' barn dance bands, the sound is more than just an acoustic folk band grafted onto a pub-rock rhythm section. The music has been developed as true fusion of the best of traditional and modern dance rhythms. Check out one of the sound clips to get the idea. They will provide a truly unique ceilidh experience for your wedding and create an electric atmosphere.

"We would like to say thank you so much for making our wedding reception so much fun! Everyone enjoyed it so very much. It has been great looking at the wedding photos, because everyone has such a big grin on their face! We made the perfect choice and are so glad we did not go down the boring disco route!"
Katie & Nathan Balls
"Just a little note to say 'Thank you' for playing at our wedding on 30th Aug 2009. We had a fantastic day, and our guests loved the Ceilidh - many of them had never experienced on before, and your energy and enthusiasm has got them hooked!"
Liliane & Adrian Connel
"Just wanted to say thank you so much for all the fun we had at our wedding on 13th December at Priest House. We didn't really know what to expect but it really exceeded our expectations and everyone is still talking about the fun we all had. We have a lot of pictures of the night ... There is not a single photo where people are not smiling. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends and should we have another party in the future."
Alison and Leigh Gates
"I'm writing to thank you and everyone in the band for a truly splendid evening at our Halfway Ball last night. We haven't had so much fun in ages! The calling and music were both terrific and the choice and progression on dances were perfect. I've already been deluged with compliments (Quote: "It's my best night at University - ever!") and demands for a ceilidh at every future Med School ball."
Amanda Dalcassian
"Thank you for arranging to play at our wedding a couple of weeks ago. We and our guests had a fantastic time attempting to ceilidh! It was really good fun. The caller was excellent and definitely required to keep us all in line, and the band were brilliant! It was a great end to a great day."
"We just wanted to say thank you so much for performing at our wedding at Upwaltham Barns on 14 March. The barn dance was the highlight of the day and so many of our friends and family have commented on how good the band was and how much they loved the rocky style of your music! Roger was a fantastic caller and did such a great job of filling the dancefloor for almost every dance. Suddenly it was impossible to keep even our most uncoordinated friends away from the dancefloor!"
Emma and Alex Heath
"Just a quick note to let you know how very much we enjoyed your playing at our wedding. To have 200 people dancing away in a marquee in the woods was a really magical evening. So so many people commented on how much they enjoyed themselves and how much better it was than having a disco! Our Scottish family were impressed by your repertoire of dances and enjoyed the Acordian strip-the-willow very much! We'll never forget the human arch out of the marquee at the end of the evening. A HUGE THANK YOU!"
Colin and Katherine
"I'd like to say a big thank you to the the BIG band who played our Valentine's Dance ... Wow! We had a great night."
Penny Allen
