Ceilidh Bands

Climax

Location: London
Price from: Enquire for details

About the Act

Climax Ceilidh Band is one of the most highly experienced and respected English ceilidh bands with excellent musicians and an experienced, friendly caller.

The Climax Ceilidh Band started around 2003 and have had thousands of satisfied clients since then, playing at weddings, parties and corporate functions.

 

We have played major folk festivals such As Sidmouth, Towersey, Chippenham, Rudolstadt in the UK and Europe.

 

The band writes a lot of its own material, while maintaining all that is best from the traditional repertoire. We make music which is as good for the ears as it is for the dancers.

Our name derives from the fact that Richard was in the Climax Blues Band. That band was founded by Colin Cooper in 1968 - a famous formula 1 racing car of the time was the Cooper Climax.

Testimonials

"Absolutely fantastic! Much patience with a group of novices. Didn't stop smiling and laughing throughout!"

"Just a note to thank you and the band for a great performance on Sunday ... all who joined in had a great time. And the music throughout the afternoon created the atmosphere we wanted. So thank you very much. It was really good."

"I just wanted to write and say a big thank you for playing at our wedding. Everyone had so much fun dancing, I can see the big smiles on everyones faces in the pics. It had the desired effect of getting everyone up and having a go :)."

"Just wanted to thank you and your band and of course the lovely caller for a really fun night on Saturday I have had that many calls from people saying how much they enjoyed the night and especially the band I have lost count. Thank you once again and please pass on my thanks to the rest of your group."
