‘We would highly recommend Broken Chair! They played for our wedding ceilidh in 2016 and it made a perfect finish to our wedding day celebrations. The correspondence and organisation before the day were very efficient and clear. The band members were very friendly and so flexible on the evening with what our preferences were, both for the timings of the night as well as the music played.’

‘A lovely waltz piece was played for our first dance followed by a fantastic few hours of ceilidh dancing. The caller for the band was brilliant. She was clear with the instructions and very cheerful. So many of our guests got involved in the dancing and said how great they thought the band were! Thank you so much for helping to bring about such a great finish to our wedding day!’

Broken Chair have just played at our wedding and it makes me really happy to be leaving this review for them. 
The whole booking process was really straight forward; The night itself was so successful. Their caller was so good at getting everyone on the floor, and her explanations of each of the dances was perfect.’

‘We’ve had so much good feedback from everyone at our wedding saying how much they enjoyed the dancing and, for us, it was lovely to see our different groups interacting with each other and having so much fun.’

‘If you’re looking for a ceilidh band we really can’t recommend Broken Chair enough. Book them! Book them now!’

‘Broken Chair were a joy to work with. Highly professional and accommodating. They did a brilliant job at getting everyone up to dance & ensured that a great night was had by all. I can’t recommend them highly enough’
