A2 Barn Dance Band - Barn Dance / Ceilidh Band | Faversham, South East(no reviews)
Based In: Faversham, South East
We specialise in playing for barn dances and ceilidhs. We are often booked for weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, social gatherings and corporate events. Barn dancing is good fun and brings people together. Whether it's to celebrate an event, or help with team building barn dancing is a great way to get people up, moving and mixing.
We are a 3 piece band and always include the caller whose role is to encourage dancers up on to the floor and to explain the dances. He has a clear and humorous style which means that dancers can relax and enjoy themselves and if by chance it goes a ... little awry, well that's half the fun of it so no-one need worry.
We take what we do very seriously and our approach is professional but we believe that barn dancing should be fun and our emphasis is on entertainment and ensuring that everyone has a good time throughout your event.
We are a small compact unit but we make a full sound. Our caller chooses lively dances and has a way of explaining them that makes people relax and get into the swing of things from the outset. John and Barbara have a repertoire of traditional tunes from all over the British Isles so if you're looking for a flavour of Scotland Ireland or Wales for your event let us know when you make your booking and we'll pick the tunes accordingly. St George's Day, Burns Night or Paddy's Night, we can do them all.
Everyone can join in at a barn dance, from young children of 4 or 5 to seniors. If you can walk, you can dance, and our sets vary to meet the needs of each event and of the guests. We tailor the dances according to the age ability and fitness levels of the dancers so that everyone can have a go if they want to and have a good time.
We formed the A2 Barn Dance Band in 1993 and are based in Faversham, Kent. Our line up has changed a little over the years but our sound has been consistent throughout, lively and rhythmic. Our current line up is John, who plays melodeon, Barbara on fiddle and Chris, our caller. However we can provide a bigger band if required.
We have all been involved with traditional music and dance for many years and continue to expand our repertoire of tunes and dances to keep things fresh.
We have been performing together regularly for weddings, anniversaries, family celebrations and social and corporate events since 1993.
Our previous clients include charities such as Kent Air Ambulance, Masonic Lodges, businesses who have booked us for staff parties, such as Belmont International Ltd.
