The A2 Barn Dance Band has been playing for family parties and social events of all sorts for over 20 years and in that time we’ve acquired lots of experience so you can rely on us to provide good music lively dances and professional expertise.
We’re a 3 piece line up including the caller. Small and tidy we can fit in tight spaces but we make a fulsome, lively sound.

Our emphasis during your event will be to ensure that you and your guests enjoy the occasion and that you all have a great fun evening. Having said that, we take what we do very seriously and are professional in our approach. You can rely on us to arrive good time suitably dressed for the occasion and ready to get your guests up and dancing.
By the way, we’re members of The Musicians’ Union and Equity and all our equipment is PAT tested.
So what happens on the night? We’re happy to tailor the evening to your requirements and so we’ll discuss timings and arrangements with you beforehand. But generally, once you’re ready our caller will encourage you and your guests up to dance. Then he’ll explain the first dance so that you can walk it through first. He is very clear in his instructions and has a light easy amusing style which means that people can relax and have a laugh and a joke. It doesn’t matter if the dancers go wrong. In fact that’s quite often half the fun of it. He’ll keep the dances going at a pace to suit the dancers and leave breaks for rests as necessary.
There’s a lot to think about and arrange when you’re planning a barn dance especially if it’s part of a larger event like a wedding or a birthday celebration. If you haven’t yet found a suitable venue let us know. We’ve played in many a village hall hotel and golf club in and around Kent so we can often recommend somewhere. We can also put you in touch with a reliable marquee hire company.
Whatever stage you’re at in your planning get in touch and we’ll provide you with a quotation and let you know our availability. We’re always happy to hold a date for you for 14 days while you sort out the rest of your arrangements and when you’re ready we’ll send you a contract to sign and return with an initial payment to confirm the booking.
