We are a three piece band (including the caller) and we have been providing vibrant, exciting dance music for weddings, family parties and social events in and around Kent for over 20 years. This means that we have all the expertise and experience to ensure that you and your guests have a highly enjoyable and memorable time.  Small and tidy we can fit into tight spaces but we make a lively fulsome 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 in 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 will tailor the evening to your requirements and will discuss timings and arrangements with you well beforehand so that from the minute we arrive you know that we are ready fit in with your plans. We’ll begin playing at the agreed time and when you’re ready, our caller will invite you and your guests up to dance. He tailors the dancing according the dancers ability, keeping it simple if you haven’t done much of this sort of thing before, or giving you some lively challenges if you are old hands.  We are more than happy to take requests if you remember a dance from a previous event or, dare we say it, from school but it’s probably best if you give us some notice before the dance, just in case it’s not in our current repertoire. 

Once you are on the floor the caller will walk you through the moves before the music starts but he is always ready with any necessary prompts, once it has got going.  People have remarked on his clarity, his patience and his light, amusing style which is aimed at making sure that everyone can relax, have a laugh and a jolly good time.  In fact, from the moment we are ready to go our aim is make it a night you won’t forget.

We always pace the evening for the dancers. You may want to dance constantly, or you may appreciate breaks between. Either is fine for us. We love to play and so we can keep the music going for dancing or for background music pretty much all night, but we will need a break about halfway through if the booking is for more that 2 hours.

We’ll set the volume so that’s loud enough for dancing but no so loud as to interfere with conversations. We understand that for weddings, parties and other social events guests may not have seen one another for a while and will want to socialise.

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.
