Ceilidh and Barn Dance band with a difference; playing all over the East Midlands.

We are a steampunk ceilidh dance band playing a variety of high powered dance tunes based around English, Irish and Scottish tunes with some original tunes as well. We can organise a full session of dances lasting up to three hours, with our own caller, Jill, explaining the moves and our demonstration dancer keeping things moving by encouraging and partnering beginners. Our music includes various sound effects including steam trains moving across the stage! The line up includes melodeon, guitar, bass, drums, cello and flute with some band members also having a go at banjo, mandolin, and sometimes bagpipes! We can ensure a varied, lively and interesting experience.

We had Lonely Mister Punch band play at our wedding reception as we really wanted a ceilidh dance (fusion wedding Scottish Indian lass weds Irish lad), and they were just fantastic! The girls got everyone involved and put everyone at ease and we loved the enthusiasm of the band and the fact they were having such fun meant we did too! The impromptu duet with the dhol player was great and so unexpected and we and our guests loved every minute of it. By far the best part of the night, just wish we'd had them play longer! Thanks Lee & team for such an enjoyable night xx

Everyone had a wonderful time and many guests asked who the band was. The music was great and the " dancing girls " were really good at getting people on the floor. The cost was very reasonable and excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend them.

Excellent entertainment

Rated Rated Rated Rated Rated

I've booked Lonely Mister Punch on a couple of occasions to entertain at ceilidhs and barn dances. They always turn up promptly, are friendly, wear wonderful costumes and perform/teach a wide variety of dances. The dance floor is always full within minutes of the music starting. What better recommendation!

From the very beginning this band was pure top class entertainment. It was my 60th birthday and I wanted something different to a disco, something that would make people mix and would be entertaining for those that couldn't join in. We all had a fantastic time and it is still being talked about and it was all due to the friendly Lonely Mr Punch Band. Personally I just didn't want the night to end.
