The Bon Accord Ceilidh Band is well established and respected in the Edinburgh, Borders and surrounding areas and is recommended by many prestigious venues, comprising castles, hotels and stately homes, for all occasions.

The 5-piece band always creates a superb atmosphere and includes 1st and 2nd accordions, fiddle, piano/bass and drums. "Calling" is always included, in order to explain how to do the dances, as is the disco. The provision of the disco allows us to easily alternate between ceilidh dances, or we can provide "blocks" of each. We always welcome playlists, but can forward our own list of the most popular and requested tracks.

Our superb lighting comprises the latest DMX-controlled Lasers, Movin Heads, Light Bars, Moonglows and Uplighters.

Depending on the number of guests, size of venue, budget etc. our 4-piece, 3-piece and 2-piece bands are also available. We can even provide the popular disco with solo accordion combination. With over 30 years experience as professional musicians you can rest assured that you will be in the very safest of hands.

We have a totally professional approach to all aspects of any function, be it a small party, a large specialised wedding or an extravagant corporate function. If you are planning a special occasion, then using people who are specialists is definitely the only choice.

The cost of band and disco can vary according to distance to venue, times and other circumstances.Naturally we have Full Public Liability insurance cover and all electrical equipment fully P.A.T. tested to conform with the latest regulations.

Dalhousie Castle

Every one will love how you look on the day, they will enjoy the meal and some of the speeches, but the lasting memories will be of the evening. If they had a good laugh, a few drinks, letting themselves go, then that is down to the band and the disco.

At Dalhousie Castle a ceilidh band is brilliant to get your guests mixing, encouraging them on the floor showing how the dances are done.

Anyone can do it and with a disco available, the evening can be finished off dancing to your favourite songs, leaving long-lasting memories of your wedding being the best.

Using the only band recommended by Dalhousie Castle, you are sure of a great night.
