    Hello!

    I am pleased to say the Bass Rock Ceilidh Band are available and we would be delighted to play at your event.

    Booking the BRCB means you get a full 4 piece band comprising fiddle, guitar, bass and drums. We are all highly experienced and skilled musicians. We play toe-tapping high energy ceilidh tunes blended with snippets and riffs from many modern songs. But don't just take our word for it - Lorraine Kelly described us as "You guys ROCK!!!"

    The guests will be in safe hands, even if complete ceilidh novices. As an experienced ceilidh dance caller I will guide them step by step through the most popular dances, and a few more unusual dances too. This ensures that everyone will be able to fully participate in your wedding.

    Our band sizes are as follows;

    Standard four-piece 'rock' ceilidh band (fiddle/caller/DJ, electric guitar, bass, drums)

    Traditional (not 'rock') Three-piece ceilidh band (fiddle/caller/DJ, guitar and drums)

    Traditional two-piece ceilidh band (fiddle/caller/DJ, guitar/stompbox*)

    *Stompbox is a foot percussion to enhance the beat

    All fees include disco if required, all our Pat-tested sound and light equipment, Public Liability Insurance, and are for a pre-arranged block of up to four hours entertainment. We arrive one hour beforehand to set up and sound-check unless a different time is requested.

    Our equipment comprises of 2 x QSC K12 speakers (1000w each)

    Mesaboogie Mark V Guitar Amp

    Ampeg MVT 200W Bass Amp

    Allen and Heath Mixing desk

    dB Technologies Cromo 8 monitor

    Lights - 2 x Chauvet 6 spot quad ISC, 2 x Chauvet Mini Kinta, 2 ADJ flood lights, 1 x Kam laser.

    I hope this answers some of your questions and I will be delighted to hear from you.

    All the very best,

    Mary Gristwood
