Don’t take our word for it

I would like to thank you and your wonderful band for your contribution, it would not be The same without the Backroom Band…………………Your ability to get thousands of children and adults dancing together without a hint of a problem, the musicianship and professionalism of the band is undoubtedly the main contributing factor to the success of this event

David Hayward Liaison Officer Somerset Schools’ Folk dance Festival

Priddy Folk Festival has relied upon The Backroom Band to such an extent you might think it couldn't happen without them. Not only do they play great music for dancing, but, by the use of advanced psychological techniques they manage get everyone off their butts and on to the floor and enjoying themselves.. A great band for any occasion, book them if you can!

Peter Arnold Artistic Director Priddy Folk Festival (1999 – 2005)

The Backroom Band is a lively band of talented musicians who are a pleasure to listen to and their music gets one feet tapping without you even noticing it…… ………………A band that goes the extra mile to make sure all the customers are happy. Both musician and caller really make you want to have a good time. The enthusiasm of the bands caller is infectious and his instructions are so clear that anyone can understand and have a go.

Councillor Harvey Siggs Mayor of Wells

The Backroom Band came to us as highly recommended in the first instance and we have no hesitation in doing the same……………The atmosphere created by the band has been excellent…… The Barn Dance is always mentioned as one of the highlights of the visit….
