“We all had a fab time (even with the complicated dance!). Thanks for fitting in and playing in rather small garden space and keeping the dances going. Lots of fun was had by all and the music was lovely.”

Vicki, Diss, July 2019

“The band were excellent. Flexible, supportive and provided a brilliant evening of entertainment. I would not hesitate to hire them again. Thank you!”

Myra, Norwich, July 2017

“Thanks so much for playing at our wedding. You were fantastic and everyone has said they really enjoyed the music and dances!”

Tom & Elle, Norwich, May 2017

“I would like to thank you and all your players of your band for a very wonderful evening. The music and dancing was perfect. People were coming to me afterwards and since the party on how excellent you played. They love the dances especially the new ones and listening to the music. Everyone was happy and thank you so much for making the evening so very happy and enjoyable. Hugh and I thought the whole event wonderful and I shall always remember my 75th birthday party! Thank you again.”

Carol & Hugh, Watton, May 2017

“Sarah and I want to express our appreciation for the really excellent evening last Saturday. We thoroughly enjoyed the music and thought you had selected an excellent variety of dances. The caller did very clear explanations of the various steps and dances. It is clear from our friends' responses and their faces while dancing that they also thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciated the gentle nudging by the lady in green when we were in muddles. (I am sorry we did not find out her name!)”

David & Sarah, Norfolk, March 2017

“A great evening was had dancing to the brilliant music and calling of the Heron Ceilidh Band at Holt Community Centre last night raising 200 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Everybody who came had a fun evening and burnt off quite a lot of calories not only with the dancing but laughing too!”

Carol, Norfolk, October 2016

“It was a very successful night for our club, everyone enjoyed themselves. I have received loads of positive feedback about the whole evening. Please pass on my thanks to your whole band.”

Debbie, Norfolk, September 2016

“The band played at our 10th Wedding Anniversary, a great night was had by all. As we had 20 kids under 6 it was a really great that we started with a few dances which the children could really get into. They even put some of the adults to shame at the later more complex arrangements.”

Gareth, Norfolk, September 2016

“Terrific, lovely group of people, they really made the party happen ! They managed to get people dancing and singing.... who hadn't done for years ! will definitely re-book when we have another event and recommend to all our friends, most of whom were there for the party and are already big fans.”

Larry, Holt, August 2017

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being a large part of my daughter's 21st birthday celebrations. We all had such a fantastic time. As planned it brought all the different ages and groups of people together to have a whale of a time. Everyone, including the young people, many who had never experienced a ceilidh, were very impressed and said they would love to do it again. On a more personal note, thank you for being so patient with us all and generally a lovely bunch of guys.”
