Our Ceilidh Style

The bands wedding ceilidh performances are lively, funky and will get your wedding guests on the dance floor until the wee small hours.

The Reel Time Ceilidh Band usually perform as a 3 or 4 piece for wedding entertainment.  The band comprises of Bagpipes, keyboards and full kit of drums in the 3 piece, with the addition of either fiddle or guitar making up the 4 piece wedding band.  The band also play as a 5 or 6 piece (with female/ male vocals) allowing them to perform popular songs to vary your wedding entertainment.

The band plays music suitable for ceilidh dancing or enthusiastic foot tapping.  They always explain how the dances are performed (ceilidh calling), to maximise enjoyment for your wedding guests and keep some order on the dance floor!  If it is a funky ceilidh band that you are looking for, then enquire for your ceilidh band booking.

Our usual Wedding format

For most of the Scottish weddings we do, the band will turn up at 7pm, set up PA (speaker system), instruments and lighting.  8pm first dance.  The ceilidh band play 2 or 3 x 45 minute sets between 8 and 12.  The band are happy to play background music during the wedding buffet and breaks.

The band often provide an evening split between Funky toe tapping ceilidh music and a disco. We either bring in a DJ to provide the tunes, or we are offering clients an IPOD option, which they can bring a playlist of their special tunes for their wedding.  The band has invested heavily in PA (speaker systevm) and professional disco lighting effects, so we are ready to make your venue come alive for a wedding you and your guests will never forget.

The Scraggly cats

The Reel Time Scraggly Cats are a 5 or 6 piece band who play a mixture of rocking ceilidh tunes, Scottish song and pop anthems.

The Scraggly Cats was developed by the Reel Time Band by popular demand. Usually the band go out as a 5 piece with Singer, which allows them to cover a range of pop, rock, soul and Scottish songs. The band also add in fiddle, bass, a horn section (trumpet/sax/trombone) and percussion section if clients have a big stage and reasonably lined pockets!

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding yesterday. You were all fantastic and everyone had a ball. Those from Northern Ireland who had never been to a ceilidh before went home itching for more!!! They can't wait to come back to Scotland.

Thanks guys, the evening was a massive success.

ps: the funk in your music is brilliant!".
