Received excellent service from Hireaband and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend. The band was first class and provided outstanding music and instruction throughout the ceilidh event.
Brilliant band, who arrived in plenty of time and played a great ceilidh and a great disco after, would definitely recommend the Kilbride Ceilidh band and hire a band.Laura Hamilton & Dominic Cardwell - Kincaid House Hotel
I would like to thank you very much for providing the entertainment at our school prom at Enterkine house Hotel. Your band was excellent and the disco brilliant - exactly what we wanted.

The band (Kilbride Ceilidh Band) were excellent as remarked upon by several guests and the DJs selection of music was also first class and adjusted to suitable volume. Guests had a very enjoyable evening and also commented on the quality of music selected by the DJ (Graeme Lacey) and the flexibility he demonstrated. Laura & Colin Neilson - Seamill Hydro

Dear Guy, Just a short note on behalf of the social committee of Ardgowan Parish Church for playing so superbly at our church ceilidh. Everyone had a fantastic time going by the compliments we received this morning. All in all a very successful evening! We hope you got home safely and look forward to seeing you again in the future. Regards,
The students loved the event - they always love a ceilidh. Thanks again for your entertainment. Kellie
The ceilidh that you did for us at the Ayr Railway Club was such a good night. Everyone enjoyed themselves, so much so that as they were leaving I was asked when the next one would be. Everyone reported sore feet, so you certainly kept us going! Ayr Pipe Band Society
Guy, Thanks so much for the ceilidh on Saturday night - it was amazing! The Blue Label Tartan Army
