If you’re looking for a ceilidh band then look no further! The Burdocks are an absolutely fantastic band, the music was brilliant and Dan was great at getting everyone involved and at giving clear instructions that we could easily follow. They were all so friendly and so much fun. They were the highlight of our wedding and will be booking them again for any future events we have!

We hired the Burdock band for our wedding in August this year. They gave the most amazing set. We were blown away by the Mumford and Sons medley- it was absolutely incredible and enjoyed by everyone (including my 92 year old Nan). We have had so many positive comments about the ceilidh band specifically from our family and friends after the wedding. It was such a hit. We know it was Reuben’s first time as an independent caller but it seemed like he had been doing it for years. He was fantastic at getting everyone involved and the dances were great fun!

The Burdock Band provided a full-tilt fun and engaging dance at our wedding. They had a great sound and the caller was good at working the crowd. Our thanks for your willingness to negotiate the space available, for standing by us throughout this challenging year (2020/21) and for bringing so much joy to our festivities. A ceilidh is a fantastic addition to any wedding and the Burdock Band has fair and straightforward pricing.

We booked Burdock for a our wedding celebration and were extremely happy with every aspect of this group. The communication was excellent beforehand, especially when we had to rearrange due to covid. The band were ready to start at the pre-arranged time and they were excellent throughout both sets and helped the whole party through lots of different dances. Everyone joined in and some of the party took their details card so they could book Burdock for future events. Highly recommend! Thanks again for a brilliant night guys! – Jess and Patrick

The Burdock Band were great – highly recommend! They got everyone up and dancing and we laughed so hard our ribs hurt. Lots of people at our wedding had never done a ceilidh before and they all loved it. 5*

We booked the Burdock band for our wedding in September and they were great. We’ve had so many wedding guests say how much fun they had. Some of our guests had never done a ceilidh before and they had such a fantastic time! The communication/booking process with Dan before the wedding was really easy and payment/invoicing all well automated. The band were great at accommodating our specific requests regarding timing and adapted their normal set lengths to fit in with our plans, which was great.

A ceilidh is a great way to be able to get everyone up and dancing of all ages and it really kicked off our wedding evening with a bang. Thank you so much to Dan and the band!

It was with some trepidation that we considered hosting a ceilidh in Derbyshire with friends and family from across the UK and overseas for our Silver Wedding Anniversary – we couldn’t have made a better choice. Dan and the band led our guests (and us, of course) gently through the steps of a range of traditional dances, with the band of amazing musicians gradually picking up the pace as our dancing confidence grew. Our guests loved Dan’s rapport – he achieved just the right mix of delicacy and authority with our party of mostly first-timers; and the energy and laughter on display was testament to his style. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Burdock Band to anyone looking for a truly immersive musical experience.

We had the Burdock Band for our wedding in Hereford last month and they were absolutely amazing! The music was fantastic and the caller was brilliant, he got everyone up on the dance floor and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time. If you are thinking about having a ceilidh at your wedding I would 100% say to go for it, and if you decide to then I can’t recommend the Burdock band highly enough.

We recently hired The Burdock band for our wedding party celebration. We had a very small and chilled wedding, so for the party a few weeks later we wanted things to be fun and relaxed. And that’s exactly what we got! The vibes from start to finish were perfect. Nicola lead the whole thing seamlessly and professionally.
We weren’t 100% sure what to expect, after only seeing a ceilidh once before at a wedding, but it surpassed our expectations. Young and old, drunk and sober – an amazing time had by all!!! Thank you all xxx

As someone who has never organised a band before, I was uncertain as to what to consider. Dan was very helpful and responsive, which actually led us to re-think our wedding reception timings – and it was much better for it. On the night Dan and the band were fantastic. The music was top notch and the calling was very fun, with Dan even running an impromptu competition from the mezzanine in the hall with some of the other non-participating guests, letting people decide who was the best dancers, best dressed, best couple etc. It was all very inclusive and we couldn’t have asked for a better event. Thanks to all at The Burdock Band!

The Burdock Band played for our wedding at the end of August 2022 (we had a Scottish ceilidh) and they were fantastic! Very professional, organised and flexible, and Dan was really helpful with planning in the run-up to the day. Brilliant band with bags of energy – our guests LOVED the dancing and the whole thing was joyous. We can’t rate them highly enough 🙂

We hired the Burdock Band for our fundraising Ceilidh. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. From the minute the musicians struck up a room full of strangers came together as one. With Dan as our caller even those who didn’t know left from right managed to dance the night through. The atmosphere was electrifying and the energy in the room did not dissipate all evening. Worth every one of the 5 stars plus.
Tracey Lynch

Dan and his team made us feel at ease from the first correspondence. They set up whilst speeches were happening at our wedding and and you wouldn’t have known they were there. Total professionalism from start to finish. The dances were called well and everyone get involved even those stalwart ‘I don’t dance’ types got up and had a go. Truly excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by all. We have had several of our guests ask for contact details so they can book for their celebrations. We would thoroughly recommend.
