    We had a great time with Brand of Fire at our Civil Partnership party. They were fun and considerate from the word go – turning up on time and very professional. They entertained everyone, young and old, generating an irresistible sound. Paul taught us how to do the steps and we had a ball trying to remember the moves – much laughter all round. This talented traditional band are an asset to any celebration and a million times better than the usual disco which is usually too loud and you’ve heard the music a million times before anyway. Ours was an unforgettable evening.

    Firstly, I must thank you again for the fantastic performance you all gave at our wedding – Charlie and I are now formally converts to ceilidh! And of course, you know you’ve done a good job of getting everyone in the party spirit when, approaching midnight, as you packed away your kit, the mother of the groom could be heard to say “what a fantastic way to start the evening!
