“Hi Colette Thank you so much for the amazing music you provided us on our wedding day. So many guests commented on how your music created the perfect atmosphere. The tune – ceremony – that you learnt for us was just so wonderful and a few people stated it put the hairs up on the back of their neck when you played it.” Tara and Michael

“Colette Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, you were absolutely brilliant and everyone was talking about what a beautiful touch your playing was, it turned something nice into something magical, and my mother even commented about what a lovely and charming woman you are too. We can’t believe you took the time to learn the music we had suggested, including the L’Atalante theme, we are very grateful indeed. We had a really amazing day and you contributed significantly to thank – so thank you.” Brendan and Fionnuala

Finsbury Town Hall

“After speaking to Colette we agreed that her quartet would play a mix of well known Irish songs and their own instrumentals. All our dealings with Colette were excellent, she was extremely friendly and professional and it was one of the least stressful aspects of organising the big day. The main thing is the music went down a storm, everyone was up dancing and enjoying themselves as the band were great. We can highly, highly recommend Colette’s band. Thanks for being such a memorable part of our wedding day celebrations!”

Wedding Anniversary, Surbiton

“We booked Colette’s band for our 10th wedding anniversary, an informal party at our home. With an Irish family and friends who love Irish music, we were keen to have a blend of popular folk songs and more instrumental tunes to encourage dancing… The band were fantastic – superb musicians, friendly and engaging and open to music requests. The audience, from 7 months to 70, loved the set. We would highly recommend the band and look forward to booking them for our next party.” Emma and Paul

Ceili at The Brewery, London

“We were delighted with our choice of Colette and her band for our recent charity céilí in central London. Their energetic caller was amazing in the number of dances she knew and the ability she had to persuade the crowd to get on their feet and dance. The music was exactly what we were looking for, the musicians very accomplished and always ready to take suggestions, and they played a mix of old favourites and some new dances to ensure that novices and experienced céilí goers had great fun. We will certainly be contacting them next time around!” Judith Ni Bhreaslain
