"Seeking a ceilidh band to perform at The Scottish Bahamian Society's annual ball some years ago, I selected the band from the listings just because I grew up in Tayside myself. They came, they played and they conquered our hearts. We love them and have them over annually to play for an eclectic grouping of expatriates from all over the world, as well as for the native Bahamians and nostalgic Scots. They have everybody up on the floor in a heartbeat. And they are fondly remembered by all the school children here in Nassau who have enjoyed the music and the dance of The Ceilidh Band. A guaranteed great performance every time, no matter how sophisticated or otherwise the occasion! The Ceilidh Band members are wonderful ambassadors for Scottish culture and the music in particular."

"I would like to say a very big thank you very much for making R & A's wedding dance such a terrific success. I've never seen so many people up on a dance floor - young & mature - thoroughly enjoying themselves so much. We appreciated that the caller's contribution was a great bonus."

The Scottish ceilidh band can provide an experienced dance caller who will lead you through the dances if required.
