Profile


a unique party format that combines well known country and/or rock'n'roll songs with simple barn and called line dances.
The band plays a range of classic country rock, country and new country songs. We have many years experience in providing music for a wide range of corporate and private functions. The song set covers classic songs like Jambalaya (Hank Williams) and Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash), through the country rock of bands like the Eagles to new country from the Dixie Chicks, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood and many more. We specialise in up-beat country and rock'n'roll classic songs that appeal to a wider audience, with many sing-a-long favourites in our set list.

Our singer Dawn also has a repertoire of line and barn dances which are ideal for audiences who've never had the opportunity to take part in this highly enjoyable form of social dance. Dawn's bubbly personality and her technique of demonstrating the dances from the dance floor means that everyone wants to get involved in the fun.

one of the few outfits in the country that can supply live music for a full country hoedown and line dance experience. We have many years experience in providing music for a wide range of corporate and private functions.

Playlists / Performance Info:

The dances are all based on the Scottish / English / Irish / American social dance tradition (i.e. Barn Dance, Ceilidh, Irish Set, and even Australian Bush dances) with a few other influences thrown in. The band's sound combines the accessibility of traditional dance music with the power of roots rock music. The line-up features some of the top players on the British social dance scene (ceilidh / barn dance) who regularly play at festivals all over the UK, and indeed the world. We have over three decades of experience in providing dance music for all kinds of functions.

Testimonials:

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.
Midway Ball

"What a great evening!! We have had so many calls from friends today to say how much they enjoyed last night - thank you all so much for making it such a fantastic party. My only concern was that people wouldn't dance, but there was almost a stampede to get to the dance floor! The music was great, and Liz [the caller] did an amazing job getting everyone going, especially as there were loads of people who had never done anything like it before. We were also very pleased that the kids joined in so much. So please pass on our thanks to the band for doing such a fantastic job."
St Andrews Night

I just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for the wonderful job you did at my party on Saturday. I have had so many fabulous comments about you and the band. You did a great job of getting the crowd going and I was surprised to see certain people on the dance floor, namely my husband! I think I suitably embarrassed him with my song, thanks for the supporting singing and putting up with my odd requests.
