Hi Julian

Thank you to you and your fantastic band for playing at our wedding on Saturday.

We had an absolutely amazing time and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ceilidh.

It made our evening reception and got everyone dancing which was brilliant.

We would have not hesitation in recommending you and would be delighted to do so.

With very best wishes,

Lucy and Gary

Excellent music tonight, and so much fun dancing. Great caller too! thanks guys


Hello Julian

Just wanted to thank you and all the team for such a tremendous evening – we really enjoyed the music and all the dances and it was so great to see that the floor was full for each and every one.

The calling was really clear – just a shame that some of us have a problem remembering their left from their right…….

A Barn dance is such a popular social event for us – so we look forward to contacting you again.

Kind regards


Hi Julian ...

Just needed to send an email to SAY ..

RED SHED made my party




To everyone in the band, thanks for being fantastic!

Craig & Becky.

Hi Julian,

I wanted to thank you all for last Saturday and the great music you all played.

I had a brilliant time dancing to all but one of the dances, so I neglected my guests really!

The feedback from people has been so good, with someone in her 60s saying it was the best ceilidh she's ever been to!

The caller explained the dances really well so it helped inexperienced dancers to feel confident and to go back for more dances.

I was surprised that so many newbies were willing to get up and have a go!

Please let us know if you're playing locally in the future, so we can come along!

Warm wishes

Lou and Clive

Hi Julian,

We should like to thank you and all the band - and of course your caller - for a wonderful dance on Saturday evening.

It was such fun, exactly what I hoped for; everyone said what a terrific evening they had had and how brilliant you are.

It was great you got so many on the floor with such lovely music combined with such clear instructions from your excellent caller, hope he didn't get too frustrated with our tangles and not knowing our left from our right, haven't laughed so much for ages....

Our very best wishes

Jenny and Graeme

Dear Julian,

We'd like once again to extend our grateful thanks to you all for playing so wonderfully

and making the evening ceilidh such a lovely end to a beautiful day. We all thoroughly enjoyed

the evening and so many people have said since how lovely the evening was so a HUGE thank you to you all.

Kind Regards

Kate, Godfrey, Sally and Dave

Julian, just wanted to say a big thank you to and the rest of the band for such a great evening on saturday.

Red Shed were fab, as we remembered, and we all had such a great time.

So many people commented on what a great band you were, so thank you for that.

Hope that we have the opportunity to book you again in the future!

Best wishes,

Becky and John

Dear Julian,

Red Shed were brilliant on Saturday.

Everybody so enjoyed the lovely happy music you play, and your caller was so skilful in enticing everybody onto the floor.

I'm not aware of anyone who failed to dance apart from my parents (in their late eighties) and four folk who had broken limbs or were recovering from major surgery!

The dancers included at least two dozen people who I never expected to take to the floor under any circumstances!

One of the bridesmaids (aged 7) actually managed EVERY dance and there were quite a few of us not far behind that tally.

The day was already going supremely well before you took over, but you capitalised on that superbly and gave the couple and all their guests a night to remember.

Thank you again from all of us.


Hi Julian

Just a quick note to say a big thank you for making my 60th birthday party such a great success the music and dancing were smashing

Thanks to all


Dear Julian

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening on Saturday.

I had a great time and lots of the non-dancers commented on how good the band was.

... brilliant calling ... you chose a great selection of dances and explained them so clearly.

I know that regular dancers and non-dancers all enjoyed the evening, as did I.

Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the band.

With best wishes,


Hi Julian

We want to thank you all very, very much for being such a wonderful band and doing so much to make our wedding such a happy affair. You were great!

Will you pass on our thanks to the rest of the band? Hopefully we'll see you at a ceilidh soon.
