"BRILLIANT!! Booked for the office Christmas do and got everyone up and dancing bar none!!! Despite prior protestations from the menfolk, and they all loved it! The music was well played, the band are well organised and Gordon the caller knows just how to get everyone up on their two left feet! You couldn't want more from a Ceilidh band! ..." Zoe of Taunton

We booked Scallywag to play at the barn dance reception at our wedding in Dorset, and they really made the event special for us. The music was excellent, the caller (Gordon) knew just how to get everyone up and dancing, and our guests loved them. Wish we could do it all again. Highly recommended! Cam of London
