www.thebigshoogle.com The Worlds Rockiest Ceilidh Band. The Big Shoogle ceilidh band have over 17 years experience playing for weddings and countless events in some of the most prestigious venues at home and overseas. If you want the very best ceilidh with top class professional musicians and a highly experienced dance caller then look no further. Although based in Glasgow, if you want a wild party with a Scottish flavour anywhere in the world, call us. And if you cant handle a full-on Big Shoogle ceilidh for a whole evening there are the covers of great pop & rock songs, all played live. No backing tracks are used. It's like two bands rolled into one, and know full-well that its all about sense of humour and everyone having a fantastic time. The band headlined the Ceilidh Tent at T in the Park in 2009 & 2010 and are just fresh from playing again at this years festival. We also provided the soundtrack for John Byrnes version of the highly acclaimed Chekhov play The Cherry Orchard which premiered in Edinburgh Royal Lyceum Theatre in spring 2010. We have a state-of-the-art sound system which is adaptable to suit small, intimate weddings and functions to large events in the biggest ballrooms. This, along with the very latest LED and laser stage lighting puts the icing on the cake ensuring that your event is a memorable one. All the favourite ceilidh dances are catered for as well as Scottish Country Dances if requested. Guests are talked through the steps of all ceilidh dances so that everyone can participate and nobody is left out. Call or email us for a full list of dances and the latest setlist of pop and rock songs. The core is a 3-piece band with accordion (& vocals), guitar & drums (& vocals) but we can provide a 4-piece band with a fiddler. Perfect for weddings, parties, graduation balls, festivals and corporate events. Dont fight it - You know you want it! You KNOW when you've been Shoogled!!
