An all star lineup came together in 2014 to form a ceili band that would raise the standard of music in the ceilidh scene. Featuring All Ireland musicians, and artists that have performed at venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, Trafalgar Square, National Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Glastonbury Festival, and many more. All the musicians in Ceili Max have an impressive portfolio of projects such as acclaimed albums, guest appearances with other major artists including Tony Christie, Joe Brown, Cara Dillon, Doolin, Barrule, Ricky Tomlinson, Joby Talbot, and many others.
On St Patri ... cks Day 2015 they performed in front of 5,000 people at Trafalgar Square. They managed to get the whole square dancing the Seige of Ennis. Something quite impressive given the number of people there!

“Tourism Ireland would like to thank Tad and all the members of Céilí Max for their superb performances at recent Tourism Ireland events. Céilí Max are a pleasure to work with, talented musicians and take a professional approach to their work.”
Irish Arts Foundation
“The Irish Arts Foundation has worked with the team from Céilí Max on a number of occassions – its a partnership we intend to maintain. When we need top class performers in the south of England Ceilimax are always high on the list. In the world of folk and traditional music you need to be careful: ... there are alot of ‘pretenders to the the throne’. The guys from Céilí Max have the distinction of being on top of their game musically as well as professionally – a rare blend.”
