Thank you ever so much for making my 30th so much fun and for managing to get even the most un-coordinated people dancing in the right direction!  Everyone I have spoken to said what a fun night they had and for me it was a birthday night to remember!  I will definitely be trying to persuade family and friends to follow suit and hold a barn dance or 2 in the future! Thanks again for a great evening of music and entertainment!    -Alex Pace

Thank you Life Of Riley for the great music & wonderfully cool calling last night.
-Ali Humphries

Thanks so much for making our 50th such a special occasion.  You set just the right tone for the evening.  All the smiling faces were  testimony to that.  We had a very mixed age group- from 6-80 plus and everyone joined in at some point in the evening if only for a few steps.  It was a memorable evening that we will look back on with pleasure.  
-Goff and Jackie Bradshaw

Exceedingly good!

I am also SO delighted that I could dance in my dress and get involved! Thank you so much!

Thank you all for making our 20th wedding anniversary Ceilidh party so memorable. The music was first class and everyone young or old really enjoyed themselves. All comments were positive, you don't get that with a disco. 
Bill Walker-Bird

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing so finely at our wedding party in Tredington on 27th June. We had such a lovely day and you and your fine compatriots helped immensely to the whole relaxed theme.
Alan & Helen MacDonald

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, it has been an absolute blast. Having you there was such a good way to get everyone on the dance floor. As most of my relatives are Dutch, they'd never attended a ceilidh before, but everyone greatly enjoyed it and it was lovely to see my parents dancing! People also kept commenting on how great you were and that they enjoyed both the dances and music played in between. Also, thank you for the "Marlie song". We hadn't planned on doing an opening dance (in fact, we avoided it on purpose), but it was lovely to have some time together on the dance floor.
Marlie & Phil

Just wanted to say a big Thank You for playing on our wedding day we all had so much fun and all of our guests said how good you both were.
Sarah & Dale

Once again many thanks. You made lots of people smile on the night!
