A stunning and perfect setting for tonight's Dartmoor wedding ceilidh. The 15th century Great Barn in Ashton.
It was a full house last night for our public Halloween Ceilidh in Plymouth!  An energetic and up-for-it crowd packed the dancefloor from the moment we opened the doors til closing time. Let's do it again! Christmas Ceilidh anyone? #ceilidh #ceilidhband  #barndance #devonceilidh
The Wembury crowd know how to party! The dancefloor was packed from start to finish at Kylie and Jamie's brilliant wedding at the amazing Hareston Manor yesterday. Possibly the most raucous ceilidh ever - absolutely beautiful mayhem - followed by our dancefloor jamming disco. A beautiful couple, a fantastic venue and an absolutely insane party!

We had an amazing time last night celebrating Jo and Mary's wedding in Totnes. 

Their wildly enthusiastic guests packed the dancefloor from the moment we started until the moment we finished - so busy was it, we abandoned the usual short break and just played straight through!

What a great night! Definitely one to remember
