It is always a pleasure to receive feed-back from our gigs, even though we usually pick up the vibes that people have enjoyed themselves. Below are a few examples of the reviews we have been sent.

"Just a note to thank you and the band for providing us with great music and instructions on Saturday. Your caller did a fantastic job in guiding us novices through the dances, for many of our guests this was their first experience of Ceilidh dancing, so it must have been like herding cats!! Thanks again to you all, I would not hesitate to recommend The Riot Band to anyone.

Best Wishes,


"I just want thank you and the band for a fantastic evening at Bury Parish Church, everyone had a really good time the music was excellent as was the calling. We received so many compliments and requests for your contact details, which we willingly passed on Please give our thanks to the rest of the band.

Kind regards,


"Thank-you so much for playing on Saturday at our Village Barn Dance, it was the best attendance we have ever had, and by far the best band.


Thank-you so much from my wife and I for playing on our wedding day. I thought you were fantastic as did all our guests as I’m sure you could see from their enthusiastic participation in the Ceilidh. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, and I wish The Riot Band all the best for the future. Thanks again,
