If you’re looking for an unforgettable wedding experience that will leave a lasting impression, then finding the right wedding band and DJ is an absolute must. We have had the honour of performing at hundreds of wedding receptions all over Scotland, the UK and throughout Europe. From enchanting castles and stately homes, to charming village halls and rustic barn dances, exotic destination and beach side weddings. We have extensive experience in providing entertainment at a diverse range of venues and locations and we can work with you offering help and advice to create the perfect party for you and your guests!
Ceilidh rock band with DJ
We offer a unique fusion of ceilidh rock and Scottish dancing which makes us the perfect alternative to a traditional ceilidh band or wedding function band. Our professionally arranged music and thoroughly rehearsed show along with our in-house DJ and lighting guarantee a night of non-stop entertainment!
Our aim is to make each of our wedding bookings extraordinary. This is why (in addition to our residencies and other commitments) we limit ourselves to a maximum of 50 private events per year. This allows us to maintain a high level of enthusiasm and energy, ensuring that every event is truly unique. By prioritising quality over quantity, we guarantee that our customers receive an exceptional service and the best possible experience.
Planning your wedding ceilidh
When you book with us, you’ll receive exclusive access to your own user friendly planning site. Once logged in, you’ll be able to manage the booking & arrange and plan your DJ requests in advance of your wedding day. We’ll liaise with the venue on your behalf. We’ll double check the timings and providing them with all the relevant paperwork, public liability insurance, PAT certificates etc. And, Norman (our band leader) will personally be available to meet with you before your big day to chat through everything over a coffee. Having a personal connection with your wedding suppliers creates a relaxed atmosphere that will make your day even more special. Why settle for an ordinary wedding band, when you can book The Ceilidh Experience for a night to remember?!
- Professional musicians who love what they do
- A caller to help with the dance moves
- Seamless transitions between the Band & DJ

- 100% customer satisfaction
- Opportunity to see the band LIVE before booking
How does the Ceilidh and DJ combination work?
Although we can alter timings to suit the crowd on the night this is the general template we find to work best and tend to stick with most of the time:
- First dance/dances: DJ
- The ceilidh band will play until the break/buffet (which is usually between 60 & 80 minutes)
- DJ will play background music during the break/buffet
- DJ set / Disco
- In the final 45 minutes the band will come back on for a high energy ceilidh finale which will end with all of the guests on the floor for The Orcadian Strip The Willow
- DJ – Loch Lomond
- Band – play a rocked up version of Auld Lang Sine
Our DJ & musicians will all stay until the end of the evening. If you want more ceilidh/less DJ or more DJ/less ceilidh, just come up and let us know. Please make sure that we are given enough notice to plan out our schedule so that we are able to bring everything to a good finale at the correct time.
Wedding Ceilidh – Pratis Barns, 21st Oct 2023
We just wanted to say thank you so much to the Ceilidh Experience for the brilliant ceilidh on Saturday! You guys absolutely smashed it, the musicians in the crowd were fully rocking out! DJ Damian was amazing as well, such a good caller and great at analysing the vibe of the floor, we all loved headbanging to our pop punk hour!
Wedding Ceilidh – Old Dr. Bells Baths, 25th June 2023
An absolutely phenomenal ceilidh band who are extremely talented and with a brilliant insane and varied repertoire. This is not your grandmothers ceilidh. Want an energetic and amazing band to give you a rock ceilidh? These guys are your band.
Norman was fantastic to talk to and really built a relationship before hand. All the band mates were super friendly. Also they have an amazing database/ website where you can request music for the Dj set but also register your first dance song etc – whatever you want. Couldn’t have asked for a better ceilidh- thank you Norman and the rest of the ceilidh band you made our wedding even more special! X
Wedding Ceilidh – Kingshouse Hotel, Glencoe, 5th Nov 2022
I cannot recommend this band enough, they were totally above expectations. Friendly, funny on the mic, brilliant musicians, passionate about ceilidhing and they were hands down the highlight of my Wedding Day. Their interesting style makes it for a brilliant Ceilidh, taken to a new level. Our guests loved the brief pop/rock music interludes between dances, and truly think no ceilidh band is complete without an accordion. Book them now, you won’t regret it! Rosie Findlay
Wedding Ceilidh – Beamish Hall, 22nd Oct 2022
The band were brilliant at my wedding – the ceilidh set was perfect and the caller was great at taking everyone through the steps – great for beginners. Really easy to communicate with the band in the run up to the wedding, and they were really helpful making sure everything was organised. Would recommend them to anyone looking for a modern and fun ceilidh band for a wedding. Adam

Wedding Ceilidh – Errol Park, 24th Sep 2022
Norman and all the Ceilidh Experience players were amazing! I have worked with them a few times before (as an Event manager) and they never disappoint, so was delighted when they could play at our wedding. Great to deal with from booking, planning and a amazing ceilidh on the night! Thank you!
