"Bowreed played at my 60th birthday party, attended by friends of all ages, and were just brilliant. They kept everyone dancing, engaging even the most reluctant dancer through lively music and exceptional calling. By the end of the evening they felt like friends and the compliments for them haven't yet stopped coming in. Thank you for making the evening such a fantastic success."

Get in Touch
Our booking manager's name is Fred. He's super friendly, and on hand 7 days a week to help you plan your perfect ceilidh. His job is to take as much off your plate as he can, freeing you up for other decisions. He's been doing this for a long time, and knows event planning inside and out. Fred is available to contact on 07480 272 072 / firstname.lastname@example.org and would be delighted to hear from you.
Book the Band
When you've decided that Bowreed are the perfect band for your party, Fred will send a booking form to you to fill out. After that, we can send you a contract which contains all timings, optional extras and payment details. We ask for a deposit to secure the booking, which can be paid via bank transfer.
We are happy to hear from you at any stage in the booking process. From initial enquiry through to the day before, we are on hand day and night. About a month before your party, Fred will be in touch to run through any final details, such as disco playlists or ceilidh dance requests. The band will be in the loop from day one, and you will receive a final email containing an itinerary a few weeks before your party.
On the Night
Bowreed will arrive with a state-of-the-art PA and lighting. We would usually perform 2 hours of live music and dancing (2 x 60 minute sets with a 30 minute break in between). Bowreed can cover the whole evening of entertainment - much cheaper than hiring a separate DJ or any additional sound equipment!
A guide to a standard evening ceilidh is:
18:30 - Band Arrive
19:30 - First Set
20:30 - Break (perfect time to serve a buffet)
21:00 - Second Set
22:00 - Disco service until venue close*
We are flexible in the run up to your event, and are happy to adapt these timings to suit your evening. For example, in some cases an early arrival may be necessary to fit in with your evening. For a small extra charge, we are able to arrange this so as to set up with no disruption to your day.
