Excellent piano accompaniments, cute smile and own woodland retreat.




Dear Tony, I felt I couldn't let the week pass without thanks for the blessing you brought with your music and stories. you lifted up the whole atmosphere for our residents and visitors who thoroughly enjoyed the rich entertainment...have you any idea how talented you are ? saw yourself how people responded. thank you so much for making the time to come and being so wonderful while you were here.

Morning Tony, I just wanted to say a big thank you.. could you pass on our thanks to all the band members, as they were brilliant and pleasant to deal with. Thanks for putting it together so well .. you really seemed to know just what we needed to make the party work, So many people commented how good the band were, and as you know there were a few professional musicians at the party, so not an easy audience to please…
The caller was great too – so patient, a mixture of being funny whilst also able to keep control of the dancers. Several people have asked for this to become an annual event so I hope to be in touch next year! Kind regards.



The Ceili Band for all occasions.
