Ceilidh Band & DJ + dance caller, sound & lighting
The Ceilidh Experience Ceilidh Band with DJ
(Ceilidh Band & DJ, ceilidh caller, sound & lighting)
This is is our most popular show. The Ceilidh Band with DJ hire includes the ceilidh rock band with caller, sound system, lighting and dedicated DJ with access to our online music planner.
Our DJ will be smartly dressed, approachable and friendly. He will come fully equipped with a wide range of music to cater for all tastes and once the booking is confirmed, you’ll be given access to our client log-in area where you’ll be able to arrange first dance and other requests. Once logged in, you can just add/remove music (whenever you like by simply accessing the client area) from the bottom of the band’s home page.
On the night, our DJ will read the crowd and take requests, building the energy on the dance floor with each track change. With a dedicated DJ, you can be sure that the music will be expertly mixed, volume levels consistent, and there will be no awkward gaps between songs. Our DJ will also handle any necessary announcements throughout the evening.
It’s important to note that if you prefer the DJ to play a predetermined playlist without any guest input or requests, the role of a DJ may not be necessary, and a simple playlist may suffice. If you want complete control over the music, our Aye-pod Disco would be a more suitable option (your own playlist streamed through our sound system and synced with the lighting).
Ceilidh Band & DJ
Both the ceilidh band and DJ share the same sound and lighting and will all be present for the full evening. Usually the band come back on for the finale during the final hour of the night.
For more information on how we schedule things between the band and DJ, check out our FAQ page.
Speech Microphone and afternoon setup of sound/lighting
Although we can complete our full setup and soundcheck within an hour of having access to the performing area, we also offer the additional option of an afternoon setup of sound and lighting. This provides peace of mind and ensures that (in the event of any potential delays during the day) our sound and lighting are already in place and ready to go whenever you are! With the afternoon setup, we can also provide a speech microphone (if required), as well as the option of streaming your own background music playlist through our sound system during the meal.
