Hello Malarkey!

Jamie and I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you so much for the amazing evening you gave us yesterday!   We had the most perfect day and our guests loved every minute of the ceilidh.  You brought us so much joy and gave me the Scottish wedding I always dreamed of!

Thank you so much.

With best wishes,    Mr and Mrs Keys


Dear Glen

Just wanted to say thank you for a great evening. I am so glad I took my sister’s advice and chose a ceilidh band. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves .   Anita


Hi Glen,

We just wanted to say thank you so much to the band, please pass on our thanks because we had a fab day!  Some people even said it was the best wedding entertainment they’d ever had!   The band did a great job of getting even the less confident and coordinated people up and dancing.   It was a lovely reminder of the ceilidhs we used to go to when we were at university in Scotland .

Thanks again!!

Best wishes,  Roisin and Andrew


Thank you so very much to Marlarkey who played up a storm last night at the Honeypot Barn Dance in Slawston !!  Everyone thought you were excellent, super, and the little bit of rain meant that people stayed in the barn to dance and didn't wander off to canoodle or smoke in the field!

With grateful thanks,  Wendy E


Hi Glen,

Many thanks and best wishes, Jane V


Hi Glen

Just a note to ask you to pass on our thanks to the band for playing for us on Saturday evening.   Unfortunately proceedings inside were a bit slow to start because of the great weather we were enjoying on Saturday.  A large number of our guests remained outside in the evening sunshine rather than come in and dance. Which was not a fault of the music!   However, after the Sun had set and the dancing got going, everyone enjoyed themselves.

Many thanks and best wishes  Roger


Hello Glen,

Just sending a big thank you for Saturday.

Our church folk had a fab evening and the team were great.

Season Greetings!  Matthew Key Hi,


Thank you for the fantastic evening, it was great fun and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

Kind Regards  Nicky


Dear Nikky,

We just wanted to say a belated thank you for the wonderful ceilidh and folk music at our wedding at the Valley Hotel, Ironbridge last September.  The ceilidh was marvellous. Everyone enjoyed themselves so much, whether they were dancing or watching.   It was one of the many things that really made our wedding day such a special occasion and so many of our guests have said what a great evening it was.   We just wish it could have gone on longer!.   Having some live music was a very important part of our day so thank you very much.   It wasn't just the dancing but the folk songs too.   It even inspired my Helen's Dad to get up and dance with her - and he never usually dances.   Thank you very much for making our wedding evening such a marvellous event for us and our guests.

Kind regards    Helen & Andrew


Hi Nikki,

Lee and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the rest of Malarkey for playing at our wedding on the 21st December at Prestwold Hall.  The music was absolutely fantastic, the band created a great atmosphere and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment.  I am waiting to get the photos from Ian, if there are any good ones of us dancing or the band I will send them to you.

Thanks again and kind regards,  Sara and Lee


Dear Nikki    

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to malarkey for all their hard work last night, my mum and all the guests had an amazing time dancing the night away!!   Was just fabulous!   So thank you very much!  Loved every minute of it!  

Will definitely be recommending you!    Rebekah


Hi Nikki

 I just wanted to let you know that the party went really well on Saturday.  Tim thoroughly enjoyed himself.  The band were great, lots of people commented on how good they were.  

Thanks for all your help.    Elli


Hi Nikki,  -  Just a quick line to thank you and the guys for giving us all such wonderful entertainment yesterday evening.   A terrific performance that will be remembered here for a long time to come (as will be the unusual sight of the Lord Lieutenant dancing on the gravel!).  

With all good wishes,   Carsten


Hi Glen, Just wanted to say the ceilidh band were great and everyone really enjoyed ourselves - please pass on our thanks.

All the best,   Claire


Dear Steve, Nikki and Ed

 Thank you all for your lovely music at our party.   Everyone has been saying what a wonderful time they had.  So many very reluctant dancers got up and had a go and to their surprise loved it! You really helped to make it a very special party,  Many thanks       


John, Elaine and Isobel

Hi Glen  -  Apologies for not getting in touch sooner, but I wanted to drop you a quick line to say that the band were fantastic at our wedding reception on 13th October.  They played some great tunes and the dances included some which were new to the experienced dancers amongst our guests, which is always a good thing!   The caller (I'm sorry, I've already forgotten his name) was very relaxed and entertaining and we've had a lot of compliments from guests about the entire band. Just to prove what a close-knit world the folk world can be, a couple of my friends said that they have busked with the caller on Sidmouth sea front in recent years, so there was some reminiscing involved too!   Please pass on our thanks to everyone - they helped to make our evening really special and rounded off a perfect day.   Thank you for your help in arranging it - I'll be in touch when we need a band in the future.  

Elizabeth and Christopher


Dear Nikki

Just to say thank you to you all for making my party such a success.  Your music was just right we all enjoyed it.
