The Burdock Band

Firstly thanks for being brilliant last night. What a great evening... Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We were really chuffed with how well you involved the kids and got everyone up and going from the very start. two people have already asked for your contact details so we may well see you over this way again sometime. if not in another 10 years! ...thanks again, you were wonderful. (Tracey & Michael, Upper Harlestone

The Burdock Band

Dear Dan, Ann, Vicki & Mike. Wow! We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for helping to make our big day so special, and for indulging D in his eccentric requests! All of our guests enjoyed the Ceilidh and have commented that the music, and patient guidance, were just fantastic - helping to make our day so very special. Those who are familiar with Ceilidhs truly felt that was really the best they had ever been to. We hope you enjoyed sharing in our special day - and that the pirate hats will be a constant reminder of how much fun we all had. (Duncan & Maciak, Civil Partnership, Parkfields Country House, Ross-on-Wye)

The Burdock Band

Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU from both myself and Sandy for your phenomenal sets at our wedding. Everyone had a brilliant time and you made sure everyone could get involved. You helped make our wedding really special and for that we will always be grateful. Thank you (Rach & Sandy, Ashton Lodge Country House)

Dan and the Band! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding - you were a huge hit with the guests and were just what we had in mind. Hope our paths cross again in the future! (Mr & Mrs Nel, Brownsover Hall Hotel)

The Burdock Band

Dear Dan and the Burdocks, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding in Leicester on 26th October. You guys were fantastic! Between my husband and I we've been to quite a few ceilidhs - but we're pleased to be able to boast having booked the best band around. We really liked the way Dan was in amongst it getting people up and dancing, rather than just standing on the stage. You even got my brother-in-law to dance who always refuses to dance, including at his own wedding! Some of the kids who were there still like to do the "wedding blessing" dance moves when they see me!

The Burdock Band

Dear Dan and the rest of the Burdock band! Thank you so much for your amazing work last weekend. We had a terrific time and the feedback we've had from our guests so far was all very positive. The special wedding dance with the magic dust sprinkling was a particular hit. I hope that you guys enjoyed it too. Thank you, thank you. (Kate, wedding, Kinoulton Village Hall)

The Burdock Band

Thank you for making our wedding evening extra special with a brilliant night of brilliant music and dancing! We will be in touch and definitely book you guys again. (Dave & Nic, The Granary)

The Burdock Band

Everyone that I spoke to only had positive comments and thought the band was great for this type of party. Dan did a great job of getting everyone of all ages involved and the band really added to our enjoyment of the evening. Everyone seemed to have great fun and I would happily recommend the band to anyone organising this kind of party. It is fair to say the venue was a challenge for the dancing but Dan did a brilliant job. (Angela Mckeirnan, Kitchen Garden Cafe)

The Burdock Band

We all had a fantastic night at my 30th birthday party, I danced all night and as people got into the swing of things I don't think there was a space free on the dance floor. There were many who had never been to a celdih [sic] before and as their first impression it was a good one, my friends are still talking about it now. (Faye, Stockton Football Club)

The Burdock Band

I just wanted to drop you a note to say how much we enjoyed the band on 26 September. Paul and I loved it and although almost everyone else was reluctant [at first] to get up and give it a go they also enjoyed themselves once they took that first step. Thank you for a very entertaining evening. (M.Taylor, wedding, Weston Hall)

The Burdock Band

A great way to do something a bit different for an evening and also to get everyone involved. We had a group of people who didn't know each other too well and it was a great way to really break the ice and create an easy atmosphere. Party was really fabulous and refreshing change to have Ceilidh dancing. Fantastic event last night, something a bit different (The Children's Society, Birmingham)

The Burdock Band

Many thanks from Craig & myself, our families & all our guests for making our wedding reception so entertaining & enjoyable. We will not forget the evening & dancing for a long time! Again - thank you! (Alex, wedding)

The Burdock Band

Thanks once again for a superb evening! You guys really hit the spot and everyone loved it. (Steve & Rebecca, wedding, Hampton-in-Arden)

The Burdock Band

Thank you so much for your music. In terms of feedback, it was a fantastic night, and a number of people commented on how much they enjoyed your music... Overall, a very good evening. (Angela, Burn's Night, Lichfield)

The Burdock Band

I just wanted to say that the Burdock Band, who played at my birthday party in Rugby last Saturday, were fantastic! I loved the music and my guests did too. (Margo)

The Burdock Band

Just a quick email to say a quick thanks again for Sunday? Lots have people have said how much they enjoyed it! Hope to see you next year! (Leanne, Camp Hill Rugby Football Club)

The Burdock Band

Sorry for not doing this sooner, but we just wanted to say thank you so much to Dan and the band who played at our wedding. It was really great and provided the perfect end to the day. Dan did a great job and trying to get people up to dance and was great fun in leading it. (David & Lauren, Banbury)

The Burdock Band

Thank-you very much for organising the barn dance for the wedding last Saturday. It was a huge success, much enjoyed by all. Please pass on my thanks to the band. (Janet, The Lake at Barston, Solihull)

The Burdock Band

Sorry its taken so long to thank you guys for the wonderful job you did at our party to celebrate our wedding. Thank you so very much for making the evening so much fun and very special, we received glowing reviews from our guests and the only complaint was that they wanted more of you! I would recommend your band and should I ever have a party in the future I would definitely book you again. It was a brilliant night and you helped make it so. Thanks again and good luck, you have a great band! (Catherine, wedding party, Birmingham)
