We've put together these Frequently Asked Questions off the back of what almost every client asks when they get in-touch with us - hope you also find them useful!
Why have a ceilidh?
Celebrate your special event with a traditional, exciting, and fun night. It's No' Reel are one of the most up-beat, lively, and engaging ceilidh bands in the business. A ceilidh is a great way to break the ice: as with so many events (particularly weddings) many of the guests don't know each other, and a ceilidh is the perfect way for people to mingle, dance, and get to know each other in a really exciting, fun way.
There's going to be guests there who have never done a ceilidh, should I book a DJ instead?
Absolutely not! It's No' Reel are expert at guiding even the most amateur dancers through the ceilidh dances - we've performed for many events where there haven't been any Scottish people in the room, and they've all still had a great time! Our caller is really fantastic at explaining dances in a fun, engaging way so that everyone is up dancing.
How do I book the band?
What kind of music do you play?
We play a wide selection of popular Scottish and Irish tunes, along with a few surprises along the way...
What is the band’s dress code?
Kilts! (Unless the weather is truly adverse!)
How much space do you require?
Generally speaking, 4m W by 1.5m D would be a good estimate for our 3-piece band. If the room has a stage, that's always preferable as it gives us and the dancers a bit of separation.
Can we come see you before we decide to book you?
Whilst we endeavour to meet all of our clients' needs and to be as flexible as possible, it is our strict policy not to allow perspective clients to visit other clients' events: we feel that such events are not the correct platform for us to be promoting ourselves at. However, we hope that the wide range of videos, recordings, and testimonials from previous clients give you a very good idea of the professional service we provide. There are a number of public events that we perform at throughout the year where it is more appropriate for perspective clients to come and take a listen.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance, and is your electrical equipment PAT tested?
Yes to both - certificates available on demand.
