TI can thoroughly recommend the Phoenix Ceilidh Band. I have enjoyed their musical expertise on many occasions at regular ceilidhs which I attend, and also at special birthday and other celebrations. They are superb, highly professional and enjoyable group who I would recommend for any special celebrations, dances or occasions, where you want reliable, beautifully performed, traditional music played.

We jigged, reeled and waltzed the New Year in to the lively music of Phoenix Ceilidh Band. They played with fun, pzazz and musicianship, the dancers guided by caller Tony Charnock who made it all work for everyone whether they were novices or old hands, or should it be feet?!

Ken and I would like to say a huge thank you, to you all for making our Anniversary so memorable.
Today we have had so many calls, texts etc complimenting your music and your ability to entertain all ages, especially the children, who had a ball, my nephew said this morning “can we do it again”!
Well the first band we rang were already booked for the night, I asked if they could recommend anyone else, they gave me your number, how lucky we were to get you guys for the night.
So again, thank you very much. may you all have the good health and sustained energy to carry on playing for many more years to come, giving much pleasure to all you play to.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for Saturday night. You are simply a wonderful group and make every evening you’re involved in tremendous fun. And the music is fabulous.And I think we introduced some people to barn dancing, which is always fun! It was a super evening.
Just to say a big thank you to you all for Saturday night.We raised £800 for Manorlands and the feedback we have had suggests everyone had a really good time. Phoenix were brilliant as always!
Just to say ‘thank you’again to you all for playing at our ceilidh on Saturday.We’ve had lots of lovely feedback from our friends,including several who said how good the band were and how nice it is to have live music.
Thank you to you all for entertaining us at our Golden Wedding party. We really enjoyed your music and so did all our guests.The evening was just what we wanted so thank you for being part of it with your good music.
We would like to thank you and the band for giving us such an excellent evening. Many of our friends have contacted us to say how much they enjoyed the birthday party. The music was great to dance to .
We had a brilliant time,so thank you again and to all your band members.A big thank you. Also thank you for helping to make the arrangements so straightforward.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for yet another brilliant night. The dance floor was again packed throughout the night with everyone obviously thoroughly enjoying the music and general vibe.
Just a line to you and the boys to say how wonderful you made my belated birthday! I had a fantastic evening,as did most of my guests-even those who didn’t manage to dance ! The children REALLY enjoyed it. Thank you so much .
Thank you for coming to play for us at Clark Foley. It was a great evening,everyone enjoyed themselves and the band were terrific.
I just wanted to say thanks again for the fantastic music on Saturday- it was ACE!. Everyone commented on how much fun the dancing was,even the people that don’t normally dance !

Thank you once again for a fabulous evening on Saturday! It was great meeting you all and I know everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Ceilidh
Thank you so much for last night. We had a brilliant evening and the band was perfect. Last night was not just birthdays as you know,it was so much more. Hopefully we’ll meet again,but in the meantime we won’t hesitate to say to anyone who’ll listen how wonderful you were.
Just to say thank you very much for playing at our party last week.We had a brilliant time and the feedback from the other guests was that they really enjoyed the dancing.A couple of our older guests said that they enjoyed watching the dancing also.
Hi Cath and the rest of the band.On behalf of Zion methodist church I just wanted to say a really big thank you for last nights Ceilidh. You were amazing (as always)and at church today everyone was talking about what a wonderful time they’d had and what fun it all was.
Thank you so much for another successful ceilidh on Friday night.Once again the evening was enjoyed by everyone, you all do a great job.

Hi Cath,just wanted to let you know how much you and the rest of Phoenix added to my 50th celebrations. You were all fantastic.I think you did so well in getting people up and dancing, and those that did get involved have told me it was the best party they have been to in a long time. I had been a little nervous about having a ceilidh, but I shouldn’t have worried it worked so well,particulary as it quite a mix of people who didn’t know each other.By the end of the dancing everyone was talking to each other and it set the tone for the rest of the night.

I just wanted to write and say a massive massive thank you to you and the band.
The music and musicianship blew me away. I could have just sat and listened to you all night. I have had so many people comment to me about how good you were and they want to book you!
You have been so kind and patient from way back last year and I really appreciate it. Holding events is always stressful and very much out of my comfort zone so how caring and relaxed you were made a big difference to me.
And the band were all so lovely. Offering donations- after all you had done – and being just so kind and encouraging. It was such a special night and everyone loved it. The dances, the way they were organised, the atmosphere- it was magical. What a way to end our year of fundraising. We raised nearly £700 and the family of the other little Sam who are having such a difficult time as they hope the treatment in Germany will shrink his tumour and have to cope with so much and the financial impact, were just so grateful. We could not have raised this money without you and your generosity. You’ve made a big difference to two little boys who need some extra help.
I hope so much to see you all again and attend one of your events. You are so good at what you do.
With love and thanks to you all.
