Duncan & Marie, Wedding, September 2019

We would just like to feedback on how great Alan and his band were. They come highly recommended. They were brilliant - very flexible, friendly and relaxed. We had a great ceilidh with a very dry humoured caller (he definitely had my number - I really need to learn to dance...) and some fab music. Thank you for your help. Will definitely be recommending these guys to others.

A big thank you to the band for playing at our first ever intro ceilidh night on Sat 14th April! Fantastic atmosphere from beginning to end and an evening certainly enjoyed by all! Thank you again, from everyone in the Shepherd and Lass Club. 


Bob & Micole, Wedding, October 2017

Wow! Highly recommend! Alan and his band played at our wedding on the 29th September at the G&V Hotel. They arrived in plenty of time to set up ensuring the evenings entertainment was on time for our evening guests. The band was professional and the sound of the ceilidh band was incredible - a very talented bunch of musicians! They got the party started with the first dance and continued throughout the evening alternating Scottish ceilidh traditional music with a disco so there was something for everyone! We have no hesitation in recommending Alan Crookston ceilidh band and would like to personally thank them for making our wedding day so amazing and one we will remember and talk about forever!!!

Lynne, Wedding, Fundraiser, April 2017

Huge thanks to Alan and the band for playing at our recent Ceilidh. We raised a huge sum of money for Blackburn Swimming Club and had a brilliant night. The band performed brilliantly as always and had everyone dancing all evening... from teeny bairns to their grandparents and all ages in between!!! We wouldn't hesitate to hire the guys again. 


Craig, Wedding, April 2017

Massive thanks to Alan Crookston Ceilidh Band for playing at our Wedding on 14th April at Airth Castle. 

The band offer an awesome Ceilidh mixing lots of group dances with waltzes to keep the energy up and the dance floor fulL! As well as this they offer a disco service too. 

We submitted a list of songs that we wanted played at the disco and Alan did a great job playing as many of them as possible. 

Would highly recommend!

Thanks for making our wedding awesome!

Another great night with the Alan Crookston Ceilidh Band at the fundraiser last night. Dance floor was busy all night and the music was great. Thanks for another brilliant ceilidh.


Emma Humble, Wedding

Thank you so much to Alan Crookston and his band for playing at our wedding last night. We cannot express enough how professional but fun this band were. The music was exceptional and we had such a good time. If you want excellent ceilidh music and a great time at your wedding, this is the band to hire!!


Lyssa, Fundraiser

Alan, where do I even begin in thanking you for everything you did at our ceilidh fundraiser. 

Everyone who was there loved the band. We have had nothing but good feedback. The atmosphere on the night was amazing and that was not only thanks to your amazing playing but also the attitudes of the 2 band members we had. Your caller was fantastic and got everyone involved. 

You were both lovely genuine guys and a pleasure to have. It actually felt like we had friends playing, who were supporting the charity not someone working who we had just meet. You didn't just play, you interacted with our guests on your break, took part and contributed to our raffle and made the night what it was. 

We have already had a lot of interest to make it an annual event. We will certainly not be looking anywhere else for our ceilidh band again. 

Thanks again.
