The Mixers are one of Manchester’s most vibrant and lively Irish bands and specialise in ceilidhs for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, folk festivals, PTAs and corporate events, large or small.

Playing as a 5-piece band, they use one of three excellent callers, Michael, Francis or Bill, to give your ceilidh an Irish, Scottish or English flavour – depending on what you want! The callers are all very experienced and are there to make your event very enjoyable and for you to have fun.

You managed to get more people on the dance floor on Saturday than anyone else in the last three years put together so well done! Donna H, Party, Yorkshire

Their caller will instruct you in each dance before you do it, call the steps and supervise the dance once it starts. Getting the steps absolutely right is neither expected nor demanded – in fact, the object is to have FUN and lots of it!

Popular dances include: The Big Set Mixer, Bridge of Athlone, The Oxo Reel, La Rouse, The Circassian Circle, Rebecca’s Roundabout, Cottagers Jig, Nottingham Swing, Cumberland Square 8, Strip the Willow, Dashing White Sergeant, The Gay Gordons, Eightsome reel, St Bernards Waltz, Canadian Barn Dance, Pride of Erin Walz.

The band will normally split the evening into periods of 45 mins to 60 mins and will perform a song or a tune in between dances as necessary, to allow you to get your breath back! They are happy to organise the ceilidh to fit in with your disco, or any other activities you have planned.
