You were fabulous, thank you so much. I think most
people danced all night and it was so much fun!!

We cannot recommend Hijinx ceilidh band enough. First class communication in setting up exactly where and when and what sort of set up we wanted (small, energetic and appropriate for drunk beginners!) This felt really reassuring in amongst everything else we were organising for the wedding.

They arrived in plenty of time, were very professional in setting up and were happy to go with the flow on the evening.

It certainly did not sound like we had the small band, the music was played with gusto, the calling was excellent, clear, humorous and very patient. We had an excellent time and the ceilidh gave our wedding guests plenty of opportunity to dance together and get involved with the silliness.

Friends still talk about our ceilidh 6 months after our wedding. Thank you once again for making the evening so much fun!

Jodie and Mark Hudson

We can thoroughly recommend HiJinx as a professional, talented and brilliant band! With all the things to worry about when organising our wedding HiJinx was not one of them due to their continued communication and great organisation. Hardly any of our guests had taken part in a ceilidh before but all of them really enjoyed the experience either by getting stuck into the dances or watching the chaos from the sides! The music and dances were energetic but also inclusive enough that children, older guests and our pregnant friends could join in. My only regret is that we weren't fit enough to go on for longer!

Laura & Martin O'Regan, Bristol

Thank YOU all so much for your wonderful music and to Steve for keeping the party going into the wee hours. You all created such a wonderful atmopshere for the evening and every single person is now waxing lyrical in their respective countries about ceilidh dancing!! I don't think we have - or will - ever experience a wedding where every single person danced.

Sarah and Raki, London

Thanks so much you were all great! Having the barn dancing added that special touch to the event and made it what it was. Everyone certainly enjoyed it; I had trouble getting them off the dance floor! You did a brilliant job and we will most definitely use you again.

Steph Hunt, Corporate events organiser. Purple Marketing

The evening was a huge success, we raised £1300 profit and everyone loved the band, feedback thus far says the music made the evening stand out from other functions ...

Sam, Corvedale School fund-raiser

You guys are awesome!   

Patrick, Festival organiser, Guernsey

Everyone who attended really enjoyed the evening so much. We were all thrilled with your professional approach and the fun you injected into the event.
Your enthusiasm was contagious.

Adam and Maria Pitt, Norton
