Roddy and the band provided some brilliant ceilidh bangers with a modern twist for a party we threw a couple of weeks ago. The guests are still commenting on how great the music was and how clear the calling was. Even first-time celidh-ers were dancing like pros by the end of it. The band were a right laugh too. Thoroughly recommend.

Absolutely incredible band, the music was fantastic and the atmosphere it created was perfect. From experienced to brand new, everyone had a blast and the calling and instructions made that possible. Would highly recommend any one looking for a great ceilidh to book Reel Time.
