The AT Barn Dance Band

The AT Barn Dance Band are a three piece band, consisting of 2 musicians playing fiddle and melodeon and the caller. They have been providing vibrant, exciting dance music for weddings, family parties and social events in and around Kent for over 20 years. They have all the expertise and experience to ensure that you and your guests have a highly enjoyable and memorable time. Small and tidy, they can fit into tight spaces but they make a lively fulsome sound. The emphasis during your event will be to ensure that you and your guests enjoy the occasion and that you all have a great fun evening. Having said that, the AT Band take what they do very seriously and are professional in their approach. You can rely on them to arrive in good time, suitably dressed for the occasion, and ready to get your guests up and dancing.

The band will tailor the evening to your requirements and will discuss timings and arrangements with you well beforehand, so that from the minute they arrive you know that they are ready to fit in with you. The caller chooses a programme of dances according to your needs, keeping it simple if you haven’t done much barn dancing before, or giving you some lively challenges if you are old hands. The band are more than happy to take requests if you remember a dance from a previous event or, dare we say it, from school - but it’s probably best if you give them some notice before the dance, just in case it’s not in their current repertoire. The band always pace the evening to the dancers, to what they want and what they can do: you may want to dance constantly, or you may appreciate breaks between. In terms of the music, they can play pretty much all the time, for dancing or for background music, or "we can shut up for a bit and let you and your guests talk, drink and socialise" (quote from band!).

Testimonials

Birthday party"I booked the A2 Barn Dance Band for my 50th birthday party and I’m really glad I did. I invited family and friends so there was a wide age range and the caller did a fabulous job of picking dances that we could all do, adults and children alike. From the start of the booking process I felt that the band were really keen to make sure that the evening was what I wanted it to be. They gave us some advice about choosing a venue and planning the evening. There were lots of emails between us and I always got a quick reply. The music was fabulous, really lively tunes to dance to and some quieter ones to listen to in between when we needed to catch our breath. We all went home with music ringing in our ears and lots of my guests said it was the best birthday party they'd ever been to. It’s certainly a night I’ll remember for the rest of my life and I’m already thinking of booking the A2 Barn Dance Band again for my 60th."
Wedding"We booked the AT Barn Dance Band for our wedding. We all had a great time muddling our way through lots of different dances, and the band did a great job keeping us all heading in the right direction. Having just a small venue meant we needed a band that was flexible and able to work around the limited space. A2 Barn Dance Band did a super job, set up in no time, and had us all up and dancing before we knew it. Thanks again for helping to make our day so special. Best wishes, Fiona."
Birthday Party"The AT Barn Dance Band provided a reel party for our daughter’s 18th birthday party – what a night it was! They were very friendly and professional from the booking stage all the way through to the last note. They quickly realised our level of proficiency on the night and adapted their playing accordingly. In addition to being consummate musicians, they are really pleasant to deal with and supportive. I thoroughly recommend them."
Reunion Party"Thank you for one of the best nights of my life. These musicians are amazing – they get everyone dancing and were happy to move outside and give us music while we danced under the stars!"
Party"David and I wanted to say thank you for Saturday! Everyone loved the barn dancing and we all had a great time. It was really good fun!"
