Ceilidh Bands and Dances

Currently I am taking bookings for two ceilidh bands, "Rumpus" and "The Offshoot Band". We play for all sorts of functions and occasions. The bands can be a Three-piece or Four-piece, including a Caller. We play for dancing and occasional functions or pubs. Our repertoire is largely British Traditional and Irish, with quite a few westcountry tunes.

Available for weddings, birthdays, barn dances, Burns' Nights and many other occasions. The Caller enables complete novices to have a go at this very social form of dancing. We make it easy for everyone at your event to enjoy themselves

Rumpus' line-up is Steve Verge guitar/vocals, Nigel Sture melodeon, Sarah Sture concertina.

The Offshoot Band‘s line-up is Ben Van Weede fiddle, Steve Verge guitar/vocals/mandolin, Tim Walker bass guitar

I am also lucky enough to deputise occasionally for " Spinach For Norman " - a band I co-founded in 1986.
