Ian & Gaynor Sivertson Preston

The atmosphere you created was totally down to what you did for us! We could only have half imagined how good you’d be. Worth every penny – thank you so much. You guys are just incredible. 

Hazel Frith Cheshire

We had a fantastic night - the feedback we have received about you has been very complimentary - everyone said what a great band you were and the best news is we have raised nearly £11,000 for Manchester Children’s hospital which is fantastic. Thank you.

Laura and Russell Tarry Woburn Abbey

WOW ... I can't thank you enough the dance floor was alive all evening! We had the best time ever so many of our guests said how great you were! Official thank you cards will follow in the post xxx but I wanted to pass on our sincere thanks to each member of the band for such a professional / fun service.

Wendy Spollon Chateau Impney, Worcs

Guy and I just wanted to let you and your colleagues know what lovely comments we are receiving about Celtic Clan in the notes of thanks we are being sent. From the fun they had dancing to the fact that everyone could stay in the room whether dancing or not and enjoy your music without it being overly loud to chat to friends. Our neighbour who was awarded your 'prize' was seen hobbling down Henley High Street, saying he had had the best time ever. Thank you for your contribution to our party and for helping to make it such a happy event for everyone. We really did appreciate you all playing through.

Brian Ward Kettering Golf Club

Great night! Entertained with jigs, reels, country, ceilidh, 70s and lots more. Something for everyone and a packed dance floor. I wouldn't hesitate to book you again. Many thanks.

Carly Martin and Chris O'Donnell Cheltenham

We loved seeing you again at Cheltenham last week. Now we've seen you there twice and loved every minute of it. Thanks for making it a great week. We will be asking you to do our wedding soon!

Max and Josie

Hi Ruth. Just a quick line to let you know how sorry I am you can't play at our wedding - me and Jo are gutted to be honest! I guess we just took too long while we were juggling numbers, and you were snapped up in the meantime. Having seen you elsewhere in January, it reminded us again. Where ARE all the good bands - lol! We'll definitely get in there first when it comes to christening our first child!

Max and Martina Birsmorton Court, Worcs

Hey guys! Max and I simply wanted to thank you for the fantastic music you provided for our wedding....and in that heat, it was no easy feat!! You were lively, energetic and sounded wonderful. Everyone commented...and they especially loved the ceilidh. Thank you so much. We would highly recommend you to anyone xxxx

Adam Cornes Charity function - Stoke on Trent

What a brilliant band! Everyone was up dancing, and when there was no room left on the floor, people danced by their tables. A great mix of authentic Irish and modern music was just what we needed - exactly what I had in mind when I booked you. A brilliant performance that made everyone comment on a great night. Thank you!

Des Maguire 40th birthday party - Liverpool

Really great! You got in touch regularly, and were really helpful with suggestions as to how to make the evening flow. You were everything I hoped for, and more. Fantastic!

Toni Edwards 90th birthday party, Stoke

I just wanted to write and say how great Celtic Clan were at my mum's 90th. You played music to suit all ages, and were very pleasant and accommodating. And you got us all up dancing, which was fab. All 110 guests said how much they enjoyed you. I'd have no hesitation recommending you to anyone.

Emma Hyland 40th birthday party - Aylesbury

I had high expectations after looking through your website and dealing with Ruth (who comes across as the perfect balance of warmth and professionalism). However, we were still blown away by how good you were. The birthday boy loved every minute of it and everyone had a ball. I don't think I've ever been to a party where such a high proportion of people were dancing. If you need any recommendations I would be happy to speak to anyone. Even a pub neighbour who apparently always complains about noise levels, told the landlady that it was a great choice of music and he had a great night! I would say that was high praise indeed! Thanks again, and I really hope we get to see you play another time.

Cath Lister Moxhull Hall, Sutton Coldfield

So sorry we haven't left feedback sooner - it's been very hectic but our wedding DVD reminded us of how fabulous you were. Laughed a lot at my mum winning the Irish dancing award! The dancefloor was full all evening and so many laughs... what a party you created for us! We've recommended you to many! Thanks so much, love and best wishes to you all. 

Dev Joshi Moor Hall Hotel, Four Oaks

Hi Guys - I recently attended the wedding of Laura Gee and Charles Kinsell in which you performed at. I just wanted to say well done and congratulations. The music was awesome and the reception a great success. I normally wouldn't dance, but the music dragged me to the floor. Consider me a new fan!

Kaz and Jeff Coleshill Social Club

Thank you so much for a fantastic night at the Coleshill Social Club and for helping us to raise so much money. The Green Man football team say thank you too and look forward to seeing you in the future

Aine Kelly Eaton Hotel, Birmingham

A quick and very belated message to say a huge thank you to you and the band for your fantastic set at our wedding back in May. We received so many compliments about the band, both on the night and for many days afterwards. You were definitely the hit of the night! And thanks also for making it even more special by letting me sing a song with you. Ben was absolutely blown away, and very touched. And apparently I had a whole load of the guests welling up, which I thought was brilliant!

Carrie and Warren Spiers Venue - Cock Inn, Wishaw

Now we've sobered up we wanted to send you a huge thank you for the fantastic soundtrack to our wedding. As a last-minute booking, only the male/female duo was available and to be honest, we had our doubts that you could entertain a big wedding crowd but OMG - you so did! It was an awesome day topped off by you guys. And busking Erasure's 'Give A Little Respect' was the highlight - brilliantly played and the whole crowd singing along - what a memory! An awesome day topped off by you guys 🙂

Loraine Stockton Wilson Labour Club, Quarry Bank, 50th birthday party

Hi Ruth, I had to write and tell you the band went down a storm with everyone at Tony's 50th - you were brilliant and they all loved you! Thank you so much for all the thought that went into your show. You were thinking about things that never occurred to me, and every suggestion you made contributed to making the evening flow fantastically. You're very professional indeed, and I'll be recommending you to everyone I can. Thank you once again for making the night - I can't praise you enough and I hope I get the chance to book you for something again in the future. Loraine x

Linda Daley Warwickshire - marquee at home

Thanks so much for such fantastic entertainment at my party last night. Everyone had a ball and really loved the music and the atmosphere you created. And thank you for taking the trouble to perform 'Hero' with such short notice. I actually preferred your version to Enrique's!

Mrs Milbourne Bride, venue - Wroxall Abbey, Coventry

Hi Ruth and gang. Just a quick message to say thank you soooo much for playing at our wedding. U were brill. U even got the reserved grannies up dancing. Fab fab night! Thanks again. xxxxx

Rita Smith Epping, Essex - marquee at home

I just wanted to say how amazing the band was at my 50th. You were so professional and a lovely group. Fab choice of music. I would certainly use you again. Thank you.

Justine Roden Alvechurch - home venue

I booked Celtic Clan as the girl duo option, and they really made my party go with a bang. Ruth and Emma had the hard task of playing to a party audience that covered 6th, 42nd and 72nd birthdays AND a house warming!! They rocked the place everyone was up dancing, even the oldies were doing an Irish jig!!! Thank you so much. Guests have been texting all week to say how much they enjoyed you both. Hope to have you at my 40th xx

Pete and Helen Wright Wedding, Pembroke Lodge, Richmond, London

Hi Ruth - we'd like to send everyone in Celtic Clan a personal message for your outstandingly brilliant performance at our wedding on July 30th. You guys were absolutely amazing and really did make our day and we had a brilliant time on the dance floor. We really appreciated your performance - it was unbelievably good.

Nicola Kennedy 40th birthday, Corkers Bar, Northampton

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the band for making my birthday celebrations so special. The band exceeded all my expectations and the number of texted messages I have received since Sunday commenting on how fab you were is mad! I'm sure we will be talking about the day for a long time to come. Many Thanks again.

Natalie Kelly 60th birthday party, Hare & Hounds, Coventry

On behalf of the McEnery family, we would like to send thanks for a fantastic night of music. You really did make Mary's 60th a huge success, and people are still talking about the 'amazing band'. Celtic Clan are top class musicians and friendly, funny people. It was a pleasure to meet you all, and we will be booking you for our next party.

Jenny Mourant Casewell House, Oxford

Nick and myself would like to say a massive big thank you to all the band for making our wedding evening such fun. The music was excellent and really set the mood for the party. We had so many amazing comments and were really pleased. The ceilidh was hilarious and you managed to get everyone on the dancefloor. Thank you so much and I hope our paths cross again
