Especially popular for Weddings, Birthday Party's and University Graduation Balls, is a ceilidh combined with a disco.
No matter what the event, you will always have some real ceilidh enthusiasts who love all the old standards. But you will also have that one person who likes to do a bit of their own freestyle and show off their own moves - the rebel who doesn't like being told what to do! That is why we offer a disco package to add on to the ceilidh part of the evening.
By combining a ceilidh and a disco, you will be sure to entertain the musical tastes of all your guests and keep everyone happy all night long.
Of course, everyone has their own preferences for what they would consider 'disco music', so we are happy to take a list of prior requests to add in to our set and we are also happy to take requests on the night.

Other Optional Extras
We strive to provide you with the best night of entertainment we possibly can and that doesn't just come from sounding good getting everyone up dancing. It is also important for most people that everything else surrounding the performance goes according to plan and for that reason we try to be as versatile as possible and offer as many different solutions to any scenarios which may arise. Below are a list of some additional optional extras which we can provide that may help to make things run that little bit smoother or help out with something on your big day (all add on extras will include a small fee).
- Early set up (this could be at any point through the day or on certain occasions the night before if it is required)
- Late finish (you might decide that by midnight your guests won't be tired out enough so on prior request, we can play late if required)
- PA system for use during the day for speeches etc.(Depending on the venue you are holding your reception in, you may find that you need use of an external PA system during the day, if this is the case, we are able to help)
