Live Music For Weddings & Parties

If you’d like a ceilidh as part of your wedding (or any other social function for that matter) then we have what you need. Our core team of musicians comprise two experienced ceilidh bands with a large repertoire of songs, tunes and dances. The linchpin of any ceilidh is a good caller, who can guide even the most left-footed reveller through a new set. And we have a fist-full ¬†of those! We also have options when it comes to the line up of musicians. Whether you fancy an accordion leading the proceedings, or a violinist to tempt you from your seat, we’ve got what you need. Perhaps you have a larger guest-list and you want the full electric line up, with bass and drums to boot? No problem. And no need to worry about PA hire; we provide our own P.A. and lighting equipment.

The evening entertainment for your wedding reception isn’t just about the barn dance though! We can also provide acoustic instrumental music for during dinner, musicians for your drinks reception or ceremony, a disco for later in the night, and live acts in most any genre. Not only that, but if you need staging or lighting equipment to really liven up the wedding party, guess what? James Kerry Music has you covered. If your party is outdoor and you’re looking for marquee and dance-floor hire, then look no further! We’ll take all the stress out of organising your party entertainment – so there’s less work for your wedding planner!

Social & Corporate Functions

Just because you’re not having a wedding doesn’t mean you don’t deserve the same great service! All of the above applies to ‘regular’ parties and functions. Our ceilidh bands start as 3 piece acoustic line-ups and grow to whatever size you need – acoustic or electric, amped up or au-natural (that’s not slang for naked, so don’t ask!). And it’s not all barn dances; we have over 300 live acts in our network and we’ll book you a reliable band in the genre of your choice. Plus, if you’re looking for staging, dance-floors, lighting equipment or even just a solid sound engineer, then we provide all of that too – just ask!

We even offer a complete events management package for small to medium events and festivals. We’ll book all the bands and equipment, run the tech side of things and take care of setting up and breaking down: whatever you need.

“We hired James and the band for a barn dance to celebrate a 21st and 60th birthday. The evening was a great success and I would thoroughly recommend James, and will certainly be using the band in the future. Thank you James and everyone for an amazing evening.”
