This was the first ceilidh I had ever organised and I was quite nervous on how the organising side of things would go. The band was extremely helpful and offered excellent advice, so that my fundraiser at the Golden Lion hotel in Stirling (12th March 2014) went really well.
The music was just fantastic! The band knew how to create a great atmosphere with the dancers and how to make it all fun and easy going. Craig was able to call excellent dance choices and helped demonstrate how they were done, as most of the people dancing were foreign students who had never been to a ceilidh before. The band was clearly very experienced and knew when to get people dancing, when to take breaks, and helped out with my fundraising events during the break. As a result, everyone had a great time!

I would highly recommend the Skelpit Lugs for any ceilidh as they are just amazing! Thank you very much for a fantastic night. Looking forward to organising the next one!

Booked the band for a family party for my daughter and her cousin's joint 18th birthday party (at Linlithgow, 11th January). Great music and great fun for all of our family and her friends. Family up from Hull who had never been to a ceilidh before were up dancing with the rest of us in a matter of minutes. They were raving about the music and dancing for days afterwards.
Band were very approachable and made the party a great success

This ceilidh (at the Albert Hall, Stirling) was set up for the first time in the university's history for 6 different clubs to attend. I was apprehensive at first because the band was new to us, and this was such an important event. Organisation of the band was incredibly smooth due to their experience, local knowledge and prompt communication. When it came to the actual night no other band could have done such a great job of getting the guests to participate. At one point the whole 80+ attendees were involved. Finally we come to the music for which I cannot find fault. All in all it was an excellent night which I know everybody enjoyed, due to the copious amounts of messages that I have since received. Thanks again!

Katherine and I thoroughly enjoyed your performance at our wedding reception last month at the Braid Hills Hotel, Edinburgh (as did all of our guests), so much so that we have decided to have a celebratory ceilidh on the 25th of October next year, and we would very much like it if you could play!
