The OX Ceilidh / Barn Dance Band ref: 4750.2
This lively band are in great demand for weddings, parties, charity events, corporate entertainment and other functions requiring that little bit of extra in entertainment value & they can, on occasion, offfer a Disco option. The band pride themselves on a professional approach to all situation and importantly, a strong sense of FUN!
The band works with a team of experienced and sympathetic callers. Each has a special talent ranging from singing, recorder playing to humour and a dry wit. Their caller explains the steps to each dance before it begins and then ‘calls’ out the steps as the dance happens, demonstrates and sometimes joins in with the fun. The difficulty level of the dances is geared to the experience and requirements of the participants.
As an added bonus, If you want to round off your evening with some disco dancing there’s no need to hire a separate disco. The band can provide disco lights and bass bin speakers at a small extra charge, so that you can play your choice of disco music through the band’s system from your Ipod or MP3 player.
The OX Band are happy to accommodate requests for favourite dances, tunes and songs (providing they know them). If you are looking for an Irish flavour, the Band can also offer a selection of Irish jigs, reels and a few Irish songs.
There is a smaller line-up available.
|Birthday||Just a brief note to thank you and the rest of the band for making my wife’s ‘40th’ Birthday Party such a success. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the music and dancing. I would appreciate if you will pass on my thanks to the other members.|
|Thank you so much for making our special day brilliant. The whole band and the caller were lovely and really exceeded all of our expectations. Everyone who we spoke to loved every dance.|
|Party||Just a quick line to ask you to please pass on my thanks to the boys for a wonderful eveining. Particularly the caller who has the patience of a saint! Everyone had such a wonderful time and I can't recommend you all highly enough.|
|Birthday Party||I just wanted to email you and tell you what an totally fantastic evening we all had on Saturday and this was in no small part due to the band who did indeed play their socks off, and the caller who between them had everyone up and dancing, including people who swore they never had and never would, from the moment they began playing. They were professional, lively, very entertaining and funny and clearly hugely talented musicians, who even went out of their way to wear shirts to match the colour scheme of our party decor. I have since received so many complimentary texts from our guests, so I felt I should let you know how excellent the band and caller were. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great evening. We will be back to rebook them for our next ceilidh / barn dance if our stiff joints ever recover from the dancing and our ribs ever stop aching from laughing!|
|Birthday party||"We have almost calmed down from last Saturday`s barn dance, celebrating my wife`s 70 th birthday. We could not have made a better choice than the OX Band - such professional musicians who entered into the spirit and theme of the barn dance with their added props and dress. Just watching them setting up at the start, it was clear that we were in for a good night and we were not disappointed. The calling was just right and the range of instruments was fantastic. Ours was a memorable night of fun, thanks to the OX Band. The evening passed so fast, which is testimony to the band`s quality. Please pass on our thanks to the members of the band."|
|Ceilidh||"I thought I would feed back to you that the OX Band (that I booked through you for my Ceilidh on Saturday) were impressive. The sound quality was fantastic and appropriate for the space. There was a good mix of dances which had just about everyone up and dancing from start to finish! The caller put everyone at their ease and gave just the right amount of direction in a relaxed style. The band brought their own stage lighting so I didn’t need to worry about too much decorating. Brilliant job!!"|
