FOR ALL AGES AND EVERY OCCASION! We are a BARN DANCE/CEILIDH BAND. Some people call them ceilidhs but we just do good old dances to tunes from Britain and America. If you want a good dance and plenty of laughs...WE'VE GOT THE LOT! We sing too!

Swing The Bridge is a CEILIDH or BARN DANCE BAND For All Ages And Every Occasion. WITH THE EMPHASIS ON ENTERTAINMENT!!! If you want a good dance and plenty of laughs SWING THE BRIDGE is an Experienced, Energetic and Professional 5-piece Folk/Rock Ceilidh Band comprising Pip Ives (Melodeon), Gemma Gayner (Violin), Geoff Sandiford (Bass Guitar), Neal Adams (Drums) and Martin Young (Guitar and Caller to teach you the dances, all in good humour). Please take a look at the picture above. You’ll see 5 people. This is the band that rehearses and will appear at your wedding, birthday party, corporate event, barmitzvah or any event of your choosing. We do not substitute band members with any other musician who happens to be available. It might be a cliche but...........WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET! There are at least three ceilidh bands, that we know of, claiming to be “The UK’S Leading Ceilidh Band”. We make no such claim but who is to say we are not?! It’s up to you and tell us whether we’re the UK’s leading ceilidh band! · We play lively traditional tunes in a fresh, modern way often coupled with a more up to date tune or song which might offer one or two surprises and..... · To enhance the atmosphere we have our own lighting. Disco Packages · We encourage our clients to book our ceilidh band and a separate disco package. While it might seem, in booking a ceilidh/disco package, that the total cost of your night would be slightly cheaper than booking them separately, we do not pretend to have the know-how of a dedicated and experienced DJ and we do not compromise simply to make more money. It is important that you have the very best entertainment and experience that we can offer. We are a ceilidh band. That’s what we do best. · However, clients are welcome to play their own music through our pa system via ipod etc. Available: London, Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire TESTIMONIALS Martin and the guys were amazing throughout. A pleasure to deal with in the build up to the event and on the night. Got the crowd up and dancing no problem and everyone had a great time. Would definitely book again! Chris, Advantage Events, Windsor, Berkshire, April 2018 ____________________________________________________________ Hi Martin Just a quick line to say a huge thank you for a wonderful evening’s entertainment last night. Everyone had such a great evening and it was certainly a night to remember with much fun and laughter. With thanks Kind regards Georgina (Birthday Party, Bobbing, Kent, December 2017) __________________________________________________________ The band was absolutely brilliant and made our special celebration such fun. Everyone enjoyed the evening. We would thoroughly recommend them and if we had another ceilidh would book them again. They were on time and very professional in their attitude. Richard (Wedding Anniversary, Reading, September 2017) __________________________________________________________ Thank you all so much!! It was all amazing and we've had so many compliments about how incredible you guys were. Everyone had a fantastic time and we are so so pleased we decided to break from the mould of traditional wedding DJ and go with you guys! Kind regards! And thank you again Codie and Jules (Wedding, Hawkhurst, August 2017) __________________________________________________________ We wouldn't hesitate to recommend SWING THE BRIDGE : their playing at our wedding's evening reception was one of our favourite parts of the day! Our guests loved it too and the dance floor was packed the whole evening. SWING THE BRIDGE is a great band to hire if you want everyone up dancing, young and old (and in between!) They're a talented band and happy to turn their hand to a variety of music - perfect for us with a mix of Scottish, English & Irish guests. Martin and his team were a lovely friendly bunch and booking them and agreeing all the timings/details couldn't have been easier. Thank you so much for being part of a really special day. Best wishes, Jennie & Richard ( November 2016, Odo's Barn, Bilsington, Kent)
