Traditional Scottish & Irish Ceilidhs
The GNCB are lucky to have with us some of the finest traditional musicians whose driving rhythm and superb harmonies will get your feet tapping and the atmosphere charged with that Celtic charm synonymous with the Irish and Scottish traditions. Our charismatic Caller has over forty years of experience in country dance calling and will guide you through all your favourites such as Dashing White Sergeant, The Gay Gordons and maybe even some you’ve never heard of! We can cater to a full Scottish ceilidh experience including the songs of Robbie Burns or provide you with an unforgettable Irish hooley featuring some of the best Dubliners hits, songs from The Pogues, all the jigs and reels you can shake your shillelagh at!
Rock ‘n’ Roll & Nostalgia
If your celebration is looking for a touch of nostalgia, why not book Rockin’ Roy & The Rebels, featuring the genuine article himself, the original Rockin’ Roy playing all the hits from his wind-up gramophone. Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Wanda Jackson – The Rebels play with a backbeat you can’t lose. Or maybe you fancy more of the Silver Screen, our very own Amy-Rose will adorn you with the sounds of Vera Lynn, Billie Holliday and keep the dance floor swinging with some Ella Fitzgerald and even a bit of Bing. The Rebels will turn their talented hands to any of your pre 1970’s favourites, with their experience and expertise you won’t be disappointed.
The Commitments Experience
Combine together the foot tapping Celtic charm of our top class Irish musicians with our sister band The Marvellas for an evening of fantastic entertainment in the style of the hit show The Commitments. To add to your Irish themed event or celebration, why not have a traditional ceilidh for the first half and a rip-roaring Soul and Motown set for the second half! A night guaranteed to have your guests on the dance floor for the duration!
Americana & Wild West
You’ve booked your bucking bronco, you’ve a hog roast all ready to go, all you need is a thigh slapping foot stomping hillbilly band! Line dances, square dances, circle dances – we’ve got them all, interspersed with all the Country favourites from Johnny Cash and Hank Williams through to Dolly Parton and The Soggy Bottom Boys. As The Red Sky Rodeo Band, we keep the knee hitching floor scuffing yee-hahs going until it’s time to saddle up your horse and get back to the homestead.
