British: Moon Music – Ceilidh & Barn Dance | UK
Moon Music is one of the busiest Ceilidh / Barn Dance bands in the UK. They regularly perform all over the country at Weddings, Birthday Parties, Corporate Events, Conferences, Product Launches, University Balls and Charity events as well as Festivals and Public Dances.
Moon Music provides a truly unique Ceilidh experience. Imagine the accessibility of traditional dance music combined with the power of rock and funk music. Unlike many ‘electric’ barn dance bands, the Moon Music sound is more than just an acoustic folk band grafted onto a pub-rock rhythm section. The music has been developed as true fusion of the best of traditional and modern dance rhythms.
Moon Music can tailor the bands lineup to suit every event from a five piece including fiddle, guitar/synth, bass and drums to the full ten piece with a brass section and extra percussion.
Standard length of performance:
Moon Music perform for up to three hours in a four hour period. They are happy to tailor their set timings to suit the clients event schedule with the proviso that the maximum length of any individual set is no longer than 2 hours. Common timings are 3 x 60 min and 2 x 90 min.
"We just wanted to say thank you so much for performing at our wedding at Upwaltham Barns on 14 March. The barn dance was the highlight of the day and so many of our friends and family have commented on how good the band was and how much they loved the rocky style of your music! Roger was a fantastic caller and did such a great job of filling the dance floor for almost every dance. Suddenly it was impossible to keep even our most uncoordinated friends away from the dance floor!"
- Private Client
"A really good time was had by all! Thank you for all of your hard work and patience in explaining the dances - I feel that people enjoy it most when they know what to do. The band was brilliant! We had a lot of aching legs the next day. However, the feedback that we got back was brilliant and many claimed it was our best surprise yet."
