Testimonials

The band gave us exactly what we asked for. The musicians were remarkably talented both vocally and instrumentally and we'd definitely use them again.

-Kings Cross and St Pancras Partnership


It was incredible! Everyone had so much fun and Burning Reels sounded amazing. We'd love to come and hear them again!

-Colin & Rebecca, London.


I booked The Lilting Banshees to play 3 nights in Varazdin. The response was amazing: they played to packed houses everywhere they went and were booked for an extra show supporting 'Regionalni Band', such was the interest. On the strength of their excellent performances, I've been able to arrange for other UK based outfits to come and visit Croatia. Burning Reels are quality group whose energetic performances left the audiences crying out for more.

I've had the pleasure of playing with these guys a few times. They're great players, great singers and know a lot of great tunes! We were lucky enough to have them play at our wedding and it went down a treat.

The Lilting Banshees played at our wedding in the spring of 2011. Having heard them at various venues before, we knew they would suit our wedding and the atmosphere we were aiming for. Once the date and venue was set, Nessan confirmed the bands availability and liaised with the venue to organise equipment and suitable location for the band to set up. The band was there with plenty of time to spare. The ease of communications, their active approach in dealing with the venue and their reliability made this perhaps the most simple and least stressful item to organise for the whole wedding. The music was excellent and enjoyed by the entire wedding party; with plenty of guests commenting on the quality of the band. We would definitely use them again for future parties and recommend them to anyone looking for decent music, and a professional service, for their day.

The Lilting Banshees played at our wedding in the Raquet Club in Liverpool. We both loved the music and it had all the guests up dancing. It really made the day memorable. Thanks again Nessan for all your help and the great music!

Booked these guys for my daughter's christening and was highly impressed with their set. Very reasonably priced for such a talented and professional group of musicians and really nice people as well.

Nick Meade, North London.

The Lilting Banshees played at our wedding in August 2013. They were exceptional.

The brothers played my wife down the aisle, with a beautiful bespoke version of 'All you need is love' by The Beatles. After the reception the band entertained the guests with a superb array of songs, interacting with guests in a polite and humorous manner.

Several of our guests commented on how brilliant their music was. Burning Reels really made our day special with their unique style and fantastic personalities. Communication leading up to the event was excellent.

I will be re booking them for my upcoming 40th birthday celebrations.!

Chris Conlon, Corby.

The Lilting Banshees were great. Really personable and very professional at the same time. They catered for our logistical requests which included the tricky timing of my wife's late entrance and some music on the move. I wouldn't hesitate to hire The Lilting Banshees again or recommend them.

David Watson, Stoke Newington
