Disco Packages
  • We encourage our clients to book our ceilidh band and  separate disco package. While it might seem, in booking  a ceilidh/disco package, that the total cost of your  night would be slightly cheaper than booking them  separately, we do not pretend to have the know-how of a  dedicated and experienced DJ and we do not compromise  simply to make more money. It is important that you have  the very best entertainment and experience that we can  offer. We are a ceilidh band. That’s what we do best.
