The Old School Band is one of the longest established and most experienced ceilidh
bands in the North West of England. We specialise exclusively in playing for ceilidhs, hoedowns and
barndances. Based on a varied range of instruments - which includes melodeon, guitar, banjo,
bouzouki, saxophone, tenor guitar, and mandolin - the Old School Band's foot
tapping sound has been the foundation of countless successful events. The band have played throughout Lancashire,
Cheshire, Yorkshire, Cumbria and across the North of England.
Typical towns include Southport, Manchester, Liverpool, Preston, Chorley, Blackburn, St Annes, Blackpool, Kendal, Lancaster, Wigan, Clitheroe,
Garstang, Darwen, Ashton Under Lyne, Bolton, Arnside, Borrowdale, Samlesbury, Slaidburn & Ormskirk.
The aim of an Old School Band ceilidh is to ensure a good time for everybody - we
are very customer orientated. We can guarantee an enjoyable, inclusive and fun-packed
evening of jigs, reels and hornpipes suitable for any occasion.
We have our own experienced dance callers to explain and lead the dances throughout the evening and
we are as happy to play for absolute beginners as for seasoned dancers.
The Old School Band will make your big occasion a success, be it a wedding,
anniversary, birthday party, fundraiser, corporate event or just a general knees up!
Though we are based in the North West we do travel beyond it when needed. So if it's a traditional
ceilidh you want for your special occasion - don't hesitate to get in touch. We can
