About it's no' reel scottish ceilidh band

We're one of the UK's finest professional Scottish ceilidh bands. We've been performing together for over 13 years, bringing our fresh, contemporary ceilidh experience to weddings, parties, celebrations and corporate events throughout the UK and Europe.

 

Our ceilidhs feature some of Scotland's most renowned folk musicians and a brilliantly fun, energetic caller. We pride ourselves on offering a reliable, professional service from start to finish, making us the ideal band to create the most memorable ceilidh night.

 

We have ceilidh'd at hundreds of events and weddings throughout the UK, at wee village halls right up to the likes of Hopetoun House, Gleneagles, Cromlix, Cameron House and Edinburgh Castle. Our ceilidh adventures have taken us to weddings in ItalySpain, and The French Riviera, too. We also performed at the BBC Scotland Hogmanay Show not so long ago.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Incredibly professional, young, attractive, friendly, helpful, amazing group who were the talk of our wedding. We just need to have an anniversary party so we can book them again!

The guys in the band were absolutely amazing, they were brilliant in the planning stages and communicating with them was really easy - on the night they were really flexible with any changes that we needed to make to timings. They were just wonderful!

SIMONE & MALCOLM

Wedding

We want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for playing at our wedding. Our guests will not stop talking about how much fun they had dancing. For many, it was the highlight of the wedding. You rocked! 

BETH & KLAAS

Wedding

By far the best ceilidh we have ever experienced! The ceilidh was the highlight of the evening. We received a large number of compliments from the guests about the quality of the music. We would thoroughly recommend It's No' Reel to anyone!

WHY IT'S NO' REEL

CEILIDH BAND?

OUR DJ PACKAGE

Our DJ package is a brilliant way of giving your guests the perfect mix of ceilidh and disco music. We'd often do a DJ set towards the end of the night. We encourage our clients to send us a list of tracks that we will aim to include in the set, which also gives us a good idea of the sort of music you're into too! The tracks are mixed using a Numark interface and iPad, and we can also take requests from our huge library of tracks too!
