Here are some comments from satisfied customers:


Dear Old School Band,

You played at our wedding in Ribchester at the end of July and definitely created the highlight of the day! I have always enjoyed ceilidh dancing, so it was great to see all our friends and family up and dancing and laughing. Everyone told us that they loved the dancing. One of our happiest memories from the day is the sight of about 80 of our friends all in a big circle dancing in the garden. We were so lucky with the weather which meant that we could have the ceilidh outdoors, and people had a really good run about. It was brilliant! Thanks again so much, it really was the best!

I just wanted to thank you and everyone in the band for playing at our wedding [at Standish].  We all had a fantastic time and the music and dancing helped create the most wonderful atmosphere!  Ever since we got back from honeymoon the Ceilidh seems to be all everyone has talked about. 
The caller was lovely and very patient and everyone was so impressed with the music (including several Ceilidh band members who were guests at the wedding!). Thanks again for playing and we will definitely be recommending you to friends.

We were at Briars recently and they mentioned you had played there, they said you were absolutely fantastic so we're really looking forward to it now! My Dad has also been checking out your clips on You Tube - he can't wait - think he might be more excited about your band than the actual wedding!

Lisa and I wanted to say a huge thank you for providing the entertainment on Saturday night at the surprise 40th. Everyone totally enjoyed themselves and it was fantastic to see children and adults of all ages joining in to dance. Hopefully we will be seeing you again one day at another party!

"We are so pleased that we chose your services for our evening wedding reception. You are by far the best live band we have come across. We would like to sincerely thank you for all the effort you put into making the evening reception a memorable event. Your friendliness and professionalism surpassed our expectations and we will definitely recommend you. Thank you again for making our evening perfect."

We were absolutely delighted with your band; they made the evening for us. We've had loads of comments on how good you were with the excellent caller. We were probably a smaller party than you are used to playing for,  but everyone enjoyed it immensely.

I would like to thank you and all the band for making my 60th birthday party such a success. Everyone enjoyed the music and the dancing, even those who did not get up to dance. I have had nothing but praise for what a good night it was and the live entertainment went down a storm. I think the caller had a difficult job getting people up to dance but he certainly worked the crowd and got the reluctants to join in. Many Thanks.

Sorry this is so late but we just wanted to thank you for the excellent
entertainment you provided at our wedding at Samlesbury last year.
Our guests had a fantastic time, as did we and we would thoroughly
recommend your services to anyone wanting a great party night that
everyone can join in with.With thanks and best wishes.

"Hi - just sending you a note to say how much we appreciated your
contribution to our party last night. Most of the crowd were ceilidh
first-timers but the calling was excellent and everyone enjoyed the music
and the variety of dances. One person did express a regret that we'd not
stripped the willow but given the general standard, we think you were
absolutely right not to try that - it would have been a complete car
crash, no matter how good the instruction!
Mr. and Mrs. T. - Chorley

"Thank you for a wonderful evening of music and dancing which you provided for the guests at my daughter's wedding reception. Everybody I spoke to said how much they enjoyed it. It was so nice to see young (in some cases , the very young!) and old coming together on the dance floor. You would never have got that level of participation at a disco! "
EM - Chorley

"Please pass on my thanks to all the members of the Old School Band and to the Caller for last Saturday. It was a wonderful party, made specially so by you. No-one has stopped talking about it."
CW - Clitheroe

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you & the Old School Band for our do at Samlesbury Hall.  The night was a great success and your band was fantastic!  Everyone commented on how good you were."
MAK - London

"May I say how much we all enjoyed the evening, and the Old School Band set the seal on what was a memorable day for us all. It all went without a single hitch. There were many favourable comments about the evening's music and the way you responded to the atmosphere. A superb evening was had by all."
Mr W - Lytham

"Just a short note to say thank you very much for doing the ceilidh for our wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, as did everyone else. Would you please pass on our thanks to the other members of the Band? I would certainly recommend you to anybody else!"
J & A - Tamworth

"You were at your best and I enjoyed myself immensely. No end of people have said how good you were and how much they enjoyed themselves."
M K - Huddersfield

"Thank you to you and all your Band for providing such a lovely evening for our son's wedding."
Mr & Mrs C - Preston

"Thank you for playing for us last Saturday. Everybody we have spoken to had a really great time - it wouldn't have been so successful without yourselves playing."
B & D - Chorley

"A belated note to say thank you. Everybody at the reception commented on how much they enjoyed the evening. Even those who were "sitting out" the dancing enjoyed the music but at the same time were pleased that they were able to talk without being "drowned out". The wedding was a complete success and in hindsight we would not have done anything differently including your good selves."
B D - Preston

"Thank you all very much for making M's and T's wedding so enjoyable with your wonderfully entertaining music. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening, commenting on the great atmosphere. We would highly recommend you."
