When choosing a Ceilidh Band please consider all your requirements very carefully. Here are some questions you might like to ask prospective Ceilidh Bands.

- Are there customer testimonials available?

- Is the band reliable - on time and dressed for the occasion?

- Do you require an entertaining and experienced dance caller?

- Is there a high quality of musicianship?

- What instruments do the band play? (is it a hotch potch of folk instruments or does it have a strong rhythm suited to dance!)

- Can the band appeal to all ages?

- What tempo do they play at? (fast and furious with little thought for the dancer, mid paced tempo for a good ceilidh swing or strict tempo for the serious Scottish Country Dancer)

- Can the band encourage even the most reluctant individuals onto the dance floor (even those not familiar with ceilidh dancing)?

- How many years have the band been playing together and what experience do they have for playing for Ceilidh dances?

- Is the band's equipment PAT tested?

- Does the band have public liability insurance?

- Does the band have a quality sound system?

- Are the band too loud?

- Can you listen to the band before you book them - are there sound samples?
