Your band recently performed at our leaving party ... I just wanted to thank you directly for how fantastic you guys were!

It was above and beyond my expectations! You were so interactive; got everyone up and dancing! The dance routines were brilliant and EVERYONE loved it!
The band members were so friendly and upbeat, it made the world of difference! And most of all, you did not stop!!! Haha pretty much non-stop music all night until the very end! - you never gets bands like that!

So thank you again! I had the best evening and so much wonderful feedback about the band. I would definitely use you again and will definitely recommend you!

I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation on behalf of myself & all my guests, to you all, for the fantastic music and entertainment last Saturday.
Everyone had so much fun and I’ve received so many happy messages for such an enjoyable evening.

Thank you for helping make my ‘50th’ celebrations so memorable and special.
I will always recommend Black Sheep with high praise. I’ll look forward to the next barn dance!!

Many thanks again...

We just wanted to thank you for a brilliant ceilidh for our wedding... We had a fantastic time, and were really pleased with the wonderful music and brilliant calling. The caller was clear and had a brilliant sense of humour to keep everyone on track and enjoying the dancing. The dances were pitched just right, and the last dance was a brilliant surprise and a wonderful way to send us off from our big day.
