Bowreed ensured I celebrated my 30th in style! An incredible night with the band and Georgia (caller) ensuring the dances ran smoothly. Everyone loved the night. Thanks and looking forward to a future dance with you.read more
Absolutely phenomenal- had them for our wedding and they were brilliant! Had so many people say to me afterwards how great the band were. Great communication before hand, super friendly, fantastic caller. Highly recommend!read more
Bowreed recently played at our wedding and were fantastic. They chose dances that worked really well in our venue and the caller did a brilliant job explaining the dances which was great as some of our guests had never been to a ceilidh before. We also booked the fiddle to play during our ceremony and the disco service for after the ceilidh, both were also great. I would definitely recommend!read more
A fantastic experience for our wedding reception! Got everyone of all ages dancing together, laughing together and enjoying each others' company from the first song. Lots of people said afterwards how good it was, and some of our favourite memories of the day were from the dancing... Fred and team excellent and helpful throughout. Highly recommended!read more
Bowreed ran a fantastic ceilidh at our wedding reception. They got everyone up and dancing and getting to know each other and importantly, kept the kids busy for most of the evening! Friendly, patient and so talented!read more
The band recently played at our wedding and we're absolutely fantastic and a highlight of the day. They got everyone involved, including an 86 year old grandma for several dances, and our guests loved it! They coped with a relatively small dance floor and were entirely accommodating and easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend! Thank you for being an excellent ceilidh bandread more
Fantastic ceilidh band - really great fun! For our wedding, the band also provided live music (fiddle) during the ceremony, plus a "disco" service after the ceilidh and speakers playing background music through the afternoon. They were great to work with throughout - professional, friendly, adaptable - and having the full package of music from start to finish really made things easy.read more
Fabulous night of music, ceilidh dancing and laughter with Bowreed at Cardiff University Halls earlier this week. Booked for our NERC GW4+ PhD Doctoral Training Partnership Graduation Ball and perfect accompaniment to our evening. Got everyone up and dancing but most of all united and in great spirits! Very clear, simple instructions from our Caller (who taught everyone to dance, young and more mature, in under 5 minutes for every set dance) which meant that everyone could join in and be a part of the evening. Would definitely recommend (for large and smaller numbers of all ages) and will certainly be booking Bowreed again for our future events!read more

Bowreed were fantastic at our wedding celebration in July 2019 at St George’s Bristol. They had great energy and enthusiasm. They were also able to command a large audience and we would highly recommend them for similar events or parties!read more
Excellent team of people! Everything was really well organised and they were very accommodating with timings and playlists. They were great at getting everyone up and dancing. Fab night, thanks so much!read more
Great band, great people, and one of the best excuses to get families and friends at a wedding up and dancing. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and with the whole package of live music and evening disco, Bowreed is surely one the best packages anyone can have for a wedding or any party! Thank you so much!

We hired Bowreed for our wedding a couple of weeks ago as a Ceilidh/Covers band combo and we honestly could not have been any happier, they were absolutely amazing! Georgia was fantastic at organising a large and raucous crowd for the ceilidh (most of who had not done a ceilidh before) and then the covers section was incredible. We had asked them to learn a number of songs and their versions were fantastic, especially nailing an incredible version of Florence And The Machine for our first dance. The whole night was super lively and so many of the guests commented on how good the band were.
I should also add in the lead up to the day, Fred was exceptionally good at keeping in touch with us and answering/helping with any requests we had and totally put us at ease. The DJ service for after the live music was perfect too.
Could not recommend highly enough 🙂read more
What a pleasure it was to have Bowreed playing at my birthday Ceilidh! They were super efficient in the lead-up to the day, and when they arrived they were totally brilliant. Everyone loved the music and the calling made everyone feel they could dance! I recommend them wholeheartedly.read more
