Our Happy Clients

The Frank Reid band were helpful from start to finish. As the Bluebird Ball was our inaugural event we had lots of questions and the band provided not only music but invaluable guidance and expertise for the whole event. We were in safe hands. The guests particularly enjoyed the songs being interlaced with the Can Can and Drunken Sailor tunes. Expert music; expert set up; experts at creating a memorable evening. Could not recommend the Frank Reid band enough!

Nick & Sarah, Spa Hotel Royal Tunbridge Wells
Thank you so much for playing for our birthday ceilidh. The many warm accolades we have received about your band are well deserved. Your contribution was professional from our first enquiry, to your arrival, set up and playing, calling on the night, and your departure. We felt confident we were in good hands, and we were right!
Sara, London
I thought Frank Reid’s band did really well. It meant everyone mixed up and joined in and they seemed to know just how much instruction to give without spending ages on the walk throughs ….. Also I loved the flautist in the band - that was a lovely addition.

A very successful Ball, in no small part due to your band's great playing and enthusiasm, which is very much appreciated by all the dancers. We have had many comments on how much everyone enjoyed the evening.

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You really pitched the level of our guests just right, and the music itself was great. So many people have said how much fun they had dancing and some of my defining moments of the day were twirling around with all our friends and family.

Thank you so much for giving us all such a fantastic evening. Everyone had a great time, the atmosphere was amazing and we have been hearing lots of very positive feedback.
Sara, Friends of St George's
Thank you so much for Saturday night. It was another incredible success. There are very few events that really bring the College community together quite like the Ceilidh. Your ability to talk everyone through the dances so well is amazing. The thanks and feedback from everyone has been overwhelming.
Alistair, King's College London
What a wonderful day! I am still reeling from my exertions on the dance floor and just wanted to thank you all for giving the children a very special and vibrant taste of bonny Scotland today.
Fiona, Charles Kingsley's C.E. Primary School
Thank you so much for ensuring all had a really great night on Saturday. The whole evening was a real success and the good news is that we raised just over £7000 for the respective charities. The music is always a high point of the evening and everyone has said how much they enjoyed the Ceilidh dancing and that the guidance you offered was perfectly pitched!
Rosie, Connaught Rooms London
Thank you to you and your band for playing at our wedding, you were so great and really made our wedding! It really couldn't have been better and everyone had such a great time. There was nothing but good comments from all our guests and we will certainly be recommending you! All the Scots were so impressed that we managed to find such a good Ceilidh band so far south!
Katrina, The Barn Brasserie, Great Tey
The Ball was an overwhelming success, and the contribution made by the band was immeasurable and ensured that the guests were able to dance the night away in style. It was quite obvious that the guests were enjoying the music and dancing so much they were very reluctant to go home!

Ian, Imperial College London
Sincere thanks to the band for playing at our wedding. Everything went really well and the band was terrific in producing an unforgettable evening. Many people have commented on the quality of the band and how well the band performed, including a number of folk who are very knowledgeable about Scottish music and dancing. The band was well appreciated by both side of the family and contributed a lot to the atmosphere and enjoyment of the occasions. We particualry enjoyed the fact that everyone was having a good time and despite some obvious lack of ability were attempting ther dances! All our guests shared in a great deal of fun and enjoyment. We would be happy to reocmmend you to others.
Kenneth and Rebecca, Guildford
Thank you so much for your Band's wonderful playing at our wedding. All our friends - especially the musicians - commented on how great the band was - it was brilliant playing! Plus you created a wonderful atmosphere and chose great dances for us. My favourite photos from the whole day are the ones from the ceilidh - the expressions on everyone's faces are absolute classics, and they all look like they're having such good fun!
Claire and Andrew, Polhawn Fort, Cornwall
Thanks for the fantastic job you and the band did at our wedding. We were so pleased with how full the dance floor was throughout the evening and it was entirely down to you directing things and providing excellent, clear and firm instructions! The vast majority of people at the wedding had no idea how to do these dances to begin with, but everyone got into the spirit and even our guests from Switzerland, who had very little English, managed to join in. Everyone has commented how much fun it was. The music was briliiant and you judged perfectly how much coaching was needed! We're so glad we booked you. We all had a ball!
Pina and Euan, Leamington Spa
Thank you for such an amazing evening!
