I just wanted to let you know that everyone is still talking about the party, particularly the music and the great calling. Some of my colleagues have said it is the best 'night out' we have ever had. So once again many thanks for a great evening. I am going to have to think of another excuse for a Ceilidh
Kind regards Marie M (June 17)
On behalf of Anna and I, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your efforts at my 40th birthday. We had a fantastic night as did everyone who attended. I would have no hesitation in recommending Knitters Jig to anyone considering having a Ceilidh or Barn Dance. Please extend my thanks to the rest of the bands members.
I hope our paths may cross again in the future.
Thanks once again. Danny S (May 17)
What an amazing evening. Many thanks to you and the rest of Knitter's Jig for making it such a wonderful occasion. So many positive comments and our many American guests learnt what a ceilidh is! From old to young everyone enjoyed the music and dancing.
Bev B. (Apr 17)
I just wanted to say a really big thank you for last Saturday’s brilliant ceilidh! We all had a fab evening and everybody commented on how amazing the band were. Some of my colleagues enjoyed it so much they have already trawled the internet and found another ceilidh to attend in a couple of weeks’ time!
Please pass my thanks to Nick and Alice as well.
Thanks again, Debbie C (Mar 17)
Just a quick note to say thanks again for last night, you guys were amazing -
Hope you all got home safely, many thanks again, Anne-
Apologies this email has been sat in my outbox since last week! It was lovely to see you all again on Saturday night. It was great to see so many people on the dance floor, everyone was loving the dancing. Hopefully we will see you again in the future.
Warmest wishes Gemma B (Jan 17)
Thought I would write to say how much we and our guests enjoyed the Ceilidh at my 50th Birthday Party last Saturday night. For the vast percentage of guests it was their first experience of a Ceilidh, and they said it was a great event, much better than a standard disco, even the people who did not get actively involved said how much they had enjoyed watching the “dancers”
Thanks again Neil and Christine (Jan 17)
Just want to thank you and all the band for giving us such a good evening last night. .Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and no-
Thanks again, Sharon and Kathy (Nov 16)
Just to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding on the 23rd July. Our guests really enjoyed it, you really were an exceptional band. It was great to see so many people dancing and we feel it finished off our day. We really loved the well known songs at the end too!!
Many thanks again, Lucy and Jon (Aug 16)
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you, Alice and Nick. We had never done ceilidh dancing before but couldn't recommend it highly enough especially as the entertainment at weddings. It got everybody from my 3 year old nephew to his 60 year old grandparents up dancing and enjoying themselves. It really encouraged everyone to mingle as well. So many of our guests told us, both on the day and after, how much fun they found the ceilidh dancing to be. Your quick and detailed responses to emails building up to the big day were really helpful and put us at our ease so we felt like the entertainment was not something we had to worry about. Nothing was too much trouble for you. You have now opened up a new world to us and we are going to another ceilidh dance at the end of September.
Thanks so much. Sophie and StuartW (Jly 16)
Thank you very much for last night, I trust you got home safely. We all had a thoroughly good time and when we got home I asked Tyler if she had enjoyed herself and she replied, "of course, I have never been happier!"
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Regards Carol B (Jun 16)
Thank you very much for a brilliant birthday ceilidh. I have had nothing but positive feedback and want to thank Knitters Jig for that. I was very pleased to have chosen the 4 person band as the music really did have extra depth.
Many thanks again, Iain Mac (May 16)
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of Knitter's Jig for the great ceilidh that you played on 2nd April. Harriet and I had a lovely birthday and our friends and family really enjoyed themselves.
All the best, Amy C (Apr 16)
Hi just wanted to let you know we were very pleased with the performance from the band on the night it certainly got everyone up dancing, everyone had a lovely time especially the children who never left the floor.
Many thanks Trish T (March 16)
Just catching up from last weekends wedding followed by a frantic week at opposite ends of the country and finally have the opportunity to reflect on the wedding and party that followed. Knitters Jig proved to be the perfect entertainers for our little group with something that really appealed to all ages. My teenaged neices report that they had a fantastic time and all the feedback we have received say that it was the best wedding they have ever attended. That included my 90 year old mother and doesn't say much about my own wedding! Auld Lang Syne at the end of the evening was a real tear jerker, we really appreciated your kindness in staying on to round off our day so successfully.
With very best wishes to you all John S (Mar 16)
We had a fabulous evening at our wedding party last Saturday. Knitters Jig did us proud. You were very professional. The music was lively and really skilfully played and the caller (you?) so persuasive that you managed to get everybody dancing which was what we had hoped for. We have had some great feedback from our guests who loved the dancing and the atmosphere and were impressed with the band.
Best Wishes Judith G (Mar 16)
Sorry it's taken me a few days to sit down and send you this emails, but I just a wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you, Alice and Nick for being so brilliant at my birthday on Saturday night. I 'danced' every dance and my legs were agony until Wednesday! However, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and loved every minute of the ceilidh so thank you all for your brilliant playing, demonstrating and Alice's wonderful calling! I want to do it all again next year, haha! Many thanks Glen!
Best regards, Ruth K (Feb 16)
We are almost back to normal after the wedding and would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of Dan & Catherine, to thank you all for making the evening a great success. Several guests have commented on how much they enjoyed the evening and from our point of view, it was delightful to see so many guests joining in throughout the evening. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to the other members of the band for a giving us such a great evening and helping to make this a memorable special day.
Kind regards, Jack B (Feb 16)
I just wanted to say a huge thanks for Saturday night -
Let me know if I can leave a favourable review anywhere and I will do so.
All the best, Helena M (Jan 16)
Can you pass our thanks on to your group for another special event on New Years Eve. Everyone really had an enjoyable night and it went so quickly. We will be in touch if we require you to come again. (Subsequently booked again for next year)
Thanks once again Carol C (Jan 16)
Thank you for last night. Everyone had a great time.
Paul H (Nov 15)
THANK YOU!!!! It is always good when events exceed expectations, and last night was one of those nights. As you were probably aware, I was unsure as to how my choice of entertainment would be received. As we all saw, my worries were totally unfounded. What was completely unexpected, was the amount of people you guys got up dancing, and also that had they been allowed, they would have carried on! That is unheard of and unique at this "type" of event. I am sure you have gained a lot of admirers, and would not be surprised to see you there again in the future. Again many thanks for last night (and especially to Alice who went down a storm!)
Kind regards Bernard T (Nov 15)
Sorry for not giving you any feedback just been a busy period. I'd like to thanks you guys for a cracking night and everyone was very complimentary of your performance. I hope you guys enjoyed the evening as well, may see you at my 70th.
Regards Pete B (Nov 15)
Brian and I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank you’ to you and your fellow band members for a fabulous evening’s entertainment for our wedding. Lots of people have said how much they enjoyed the evening, and how refreshing it was to have something different. We have some great videos to remind us of the enthusiasm with which our guests took part, and there were certainly lots of laughs to accompany the dancing! It really was a very special day for us, and we were delighted with how everything went. Your cheery professionalism and brilliant sound was much appreciated by all. Many thanks once again.
Kind regards, Jan and Brian S (Oct 15)
We wanted to say a very heartfelt thank you to you, Alice, Dale and Nick for giving us the most spectacular ceilidh at our silver wedding party last Saturday. We couldn’t believe it when, despite having all just eaten fish and chips, practically all our guests stood up for the first dance -
We are still grinning from ear to ear at the memories -
Warm regards. Rick and Pam L (Sep 15)
Thank you very much for Saturday, everyone including ourselves loved it and had a great time dancing, it made our day even more special to have such a great band. One of my friends who was there has asked for your contact details, on the 3rd October a charity ball has been organised at Whittlebury Hall Hotel in Northampton and we wondered if you would have availability to play?
Kind regards Elizabeth G. (Sep 15)
I just wanted to say thank you so much to you all for coming and playing at my 40th birthday on Sunday in Coventry.
The feedback we have had is fantastic. Such a fun evening and so many people have said they’d forgotten how much they enjoyed doing the dances you did with us all. Thanks to you all for such a brilliant evening of entertainment, dancing and laughter!
With very best wishes from Sarah and Steve (Aug 15)
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday. You guys did an amazing job. We loved the dancing and there were plenty of people on that dance floor who I would never have expected to get up.
Thanks for adding to the atmosphere and helping to make our day special.
Regards Jo and Mark (Aug 15)
Well, myself and Andy just wanted to say a massive thank you to the whole band for playing at our wedding this weekend! Your were absolutely fantastic and everyone has told us how much they enjoyed dancing along with you. Even the people with three left feet managed to muddle through a dance or two! You were very professional and extremely talented at what you do! We had an absolute blast!
Thanks again! Emma and Andy xxxxx (Jly 2015)
Dear Knitters Jig,
Thank you so very much for last night, you were all amazing and we had an absolutely fantastic time. Our guests also had a brilliant evening some saying it was the best night out they had had for many years and even our shy teenage guests loved the dancing. Thank you for being so patient with us and for teaching us new dances that we very much hope we will be doing again soon, our son even said we should do it all again next weekend!
Kindest Regards Angela and Nathan T (Jun 15)
I'm sorry I didn't see you before you left last night. I wanted to say how pleased we were with the dance. I've been to quite a few barn and square dances before, but I can genuinely say that this was by far the best we've been to. The way you led the evening was perfect and the music three musicians made was fantastic. I think that the dance floor was packed all evening was testimony to that. Please pass on our thanks to the other two members of the group. You all did a superb job and we are very grateful. It was the perfect evening and was just what Hannah and Luke wanted and I know they'd want to express their gratitude too. Hopefully, we might get the opportunity to arrange another barn dance in the future and if we do, then we'd certainly want Knitters Jig! Peter W (May 15)
Hi Glen, Alice and Nick,
Just a quick note to say a very big thank you for a wonderful night on the 11th April. Everyone said how much they enjoyed your music and how patient Alice was with all the dancers! There were some people at the party who had never been to a barn dance before but are now looking forward to their next one.
Thank you all once again, Jill C (Apr 15)
Hope you are well. Apologises that it has taken me all week to send you this email (I am a teacher and I have had Parents' Evening and an Ofsted inspection this week!!!), but I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, Alice and Nick for such a fantastic barn dance last weekend for my Mum's 60th birthday! We all thought you were such a fantastic band (we would highly recommend you!), and you all made the evening such a wonderful and memorable occasion, so thank you once again.. Hayley C (Apr 15)
Dear Knitter’s Jig
I would just like to say thank you for making our special day go with a swing. We all thoroughly enjoyed the dancing and I think we have introduced the delights of the Ceilidh Band to a younger generation. Thank you once again from my husband and I. Bev and Ray H (March 15)
Diane and I want to thank you all again for making last Saturday such a wonderful evening. You were very patient with us considering we were such a dim bunch of cowboys and girls. It was a night we'll remember for a long time, our grandchildren have been converted from disco to your wonderful brand of music and dance.
Thanks again Yours sincerely Diane and Steve U (Feb 15)
Thanks once again for a fabulous performance on Friday Night. We've had so many positive comments that we want to do it again on Saturday 23rd Jan 2016 if you are free.
Best regards Mark c. (Jan 15)
Just a quick email to say a massive thanks for Saturday night. A great time was had by all and many people commented on you guys :-
Thanks again. Andy B (Nov 14)
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you and the rest of the band for your attendance on Sunday – you all played amazingly, the caller did a fantastic job and everyone commented on how well you played so thank you.
We are planning to host more events in the future so we will be back in touch in the future.
Best Wishes, Kate Chapterhouse Theatre Company (Nov 14)
Dear Glen and the band,
Just a short note to say how much everyone enjoyed the band last night. We've had lots of great comments this morning -
We probably weren't the most obedient of audiences but you managed to get people up and dancing who haven't done so for years!
Many, many, thanks, Sheila S (Sep 14)
Just wanted to say thank you again for last nights Ceilidh. Everyone has said how great they thought the band were and the caller was brilliant! It was such good fun. I wanted to leave you a review that you could put on your website? So here goes. Knitters Jig are a brilliant Ceilidh band! Everyone who came to our event loved the night and kept saying how great the band were and how patient and fun the caller was (most of us were complete beginners). It was one of the best nights any of us have had in a long time so to anyone who is thinking of holding a Ceilidh, I would highly recommend that you hire Knitters Jig. We definitely would again.
Kind Regards, Louise Corby T (July 14)
Just a quick note to say thanks again for your playing on Saturday night. We had a great time and everyone who came along has been very vocal in saying what a fantastic time they had dancing -
Cheers, Graham M (July 14)
You all gave us an amazing and hugely fun and enjoyable evening. Your playing was superb and your teaching, calling and encouragement were fabulous. I think everyone, young and old alike, had a great time. I haven't had such a night in a long time and next time I have a party I know exactly who I shall be getting in touch with.
All best wishes Jane F (Nov 13)
Hi Glen and Knitters Jig, we are just back from honeymoon and we both wanted to say thank you! You guys were great, getting everyone involved, paying great music and basically getting us to Ceilidh. Our lasting memory of our big day will be everyone (well nearly everyone :)) successfully stripping the willow, you helped us have great fun.
Mr and Mrs P (Feb 14)
Thank you so much for helping to make my 60th birthday party on the 5th April such a good one. The music was wonderful, I am sorry you had to work so hard at times to get some on their feet. I shall certainly be giving out your name if any one wants a Ceilidh, actually I felt sure I had seen you some where before perhaps at a folk festival some where. Once again thank you so much.
Best wishes Angela and David W (Apr 14)
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the band for a fantastic night of music and dancing! All the guests who stayed to dance had a fantastic time and it was brilliant to see the delighted faces of those who had never barn danced : ) you are a wonderful group…………….
Many thanks, Mary and Marc
We just wanted to say thank you for your performance last night,the band was absolutely fantastic and everyone had a great time.
many thanks Daniel and Rachel B (Oct 13)
We had a fabulous time last night, one which we shall always remember, enjoying time dancing with family and friends. It is your band which made the night so very special. Thank you so much for coming out in such horrible weather conditions. You were fantastic. Everyone I spoke to enjoyed the music. Even people who never dance joined in, and the teenagers who had never been to a ceilidh loved it. The dances you chose for such a mixed group and your instructions were perfect, and your skill on the instruments a joy to listen to.
Jo and John
Firstly, thank you all so much for a brilliant ceilidh and helping make our day so perfect!!!! Most of our friends had never taken part in a ceilidh before and all said it wouldn't be their last!!!!!! Due to the huge impracticalites of my dress I didn't manage many dances as I usually would, but I gave it my best shot!!!!! Our photographer has uploaded the wedding photos onto……………………………
To Knitter’s Jig
I had such a good evening – I’m sorry I didn’t manage to thank each of you before you left – the music and dancing was brilliant. Well done the caller for keeping everyone swinging around. I absolutely loved it. Thanks for a great evening, and doing your stuff so professionally without any fuss. There were lots of people who said how good you were. I’ll grab the chance to pass bookings your way.
Thank you again. Regards, felicity
Just to say thank you once again for the beautiful music for Rebekah's wedding. We were so pleased with the band and really enjoyed the music at the church and of course the dance which everyone agreed was brilliant! So much better than a "disco".
best wishes Chris A
Now that we are returned from our honeymoon and are getting back to normality we just wanted to write to thank you and all the members of the Knitters Jig for delivering such a great musical support to our wedding Ceilidh, which was a highlight to our wedding celebrations. All of the family and friends we have spoken to have mentioned the Ceilidh as a being key to their enjoyment of the celebration on the day. It was great to see young and old, kilted and otherwise thoroughly enjoying themselves on the evening. Many thanks again to all of knitters jig.
With best wishes Ian, Maria and Anna
Hope you are well. I just wanted to drop you a line to again say a really big thank you for playing at my 40th birthday party at Risley Hall the other weekend -
Take care. Michelle
Hi Glen & team;
Just to say a massive thanks for last Sunday. The whole evening was a great success – everybody seemed to enjoy themselves -
Thanks again & best wishes to you all. Keith M
we had a great evening thank you, lots of people texting to say they had a really good time. we both had achy knees and feet the next day but it was worth it! Thanks to Alice for her patience and you all for your accomplished playing. we enjoyed all the music you played.
Many thanks Linda and Celia
Just wanted to say a huge Thank You for all your help, the band were fantastic and party was brilliant. I am getting loads of feedback from friends and family saying how much they enjoyed it and everyone was complimentary about the band. They were friendly, kept the party flowing and the music was amazing. So thanks again, we are thinking up an excuse for another party already!
Kind regards Dionne
We just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for playing at our wedding reception and giving us all such a brilliant time!! The music was fantastic and we saw people on the dance floor who we never thought would dance, that includes Colin who had been adamant all the way along that he wouldn't be doing a first dance! But you got him dancing which is no mean feat! We've had lots of comments from friends who said they loved the evening and really enjoyed themselves so thank you from them too! We are now looking for any excuse to hold a party and book you again!! We'll be back.......!!
Thanks once again! Best wishes, Becky and Colin x
We would just like to say a big thank you to the band for Saturday night. You were EXCELLENT and really made the party go with a swing. Everybody enjoyed the evening, and were so excited about the dancing.
Many, many thanks, Hilary
It all went so well!!! We couldn't have imagined anything like the turn out and enthusiasm of both the boys and girls and their parents. Do thank Knitters Jig for me. They had to work very hard in our very difficult space -
St Hugh’s School
Belated grateful thanks to you all for another great night last Saturday. I had lots of appreciation afterwards from many happy punters! We haven’t yet earmarked a date for next year’s repeat performance but will contact you after our next committee meeting.
Kind regards to you all. Jane T
Many thanks to you all for a great evening on Saturday. We all enjoyed your selection of dances and Alice's easy and warm way of calling sorting everyone out! It was a lovely way to celebrate Elizabeth's 18th.
Many thanks Ros and Nick
Just getting around to all my thank yous -
Kind regards Judith
Thank you for the wonderful way you all contributed to Ben & Becky's wedding on Friday 2 August from playing in the church, playing on the way to the reception to the fantastic ceilidh in the evening.
Brian (Ben's dad)
Just a quick e-
Best wishes and thanks again,
Alison and Steve
Just to say thank you very much for helping to make Kate and Simon's Wedding Day a day to remember. Your selection of music and dances was just right for the occasion and we have had many favourable comments from the guests. The atmosphere the music created was just as Kate and Simon wished and they were pleased that so many people including the children participated in the dancing. We all thought it was a lovely way to end such an important day.
We also really enjoyed the procession from the church led by your fiddle player. Again their choice of music was perfect. We have captured this on video, it is a bit bumpy but we have all enjoyed watching this and it will be a memory to treasure for Kate and Simon. We are just so glad the weather was dry and that Kate was able to ride from the church on Molly (Kate’s Horse). This had been her dream for many years.
Thank you again so much for your ideas and flexibility which enabled us all to have such a wonderful day. If we ever need a barn dance group in the future we are sure to contact you and we will certainly recommend your band to anyone who is interested in holding a barn dance. We were extremely pleased with the service we received from Knitters Jig.
Many thanks, Angela and Anthony
We just wanted to say a huge "thank you" to you all for playing at our wedding on Saturday. We all had a fantastic time, even if we didn't always get the steps in the right order!! It was a truly memorable day for everyone.
Many thanks again. Helen and Anthony
Thank you all so much for playing on 4th June at our party in the park! Everyone had a fab time, and all loved the dancing. Hope it won't be too long before you are back in our village!
Just wanted to say thank you for attending our family fun day, you provided a professional friendly service & everyone enjoyed your music especially those who participated in the dancing. It was certainly one of the best highlights of the day. Once again thank you for being part of our family day & helping to make it a great success.
I would like to thank you and the rest of the team for being such a significant factor in making my wedding day say utterly brilliant. I loved walking up the field to your music, it was just what I wanted and I don't think anything could have been more appropriate. The Caliegh in the evening provided some of the best memories from the day, if not the best memory; having asked a few individuals of they would like to dance, given that they seemed to be mesmerised by the the side of the dance floor only to be met with a look of "no fear" I returned a while later to see John, my uncle, a solicitor from Co Durham, Mark a surgeon from the village and Billy a scouse car salesman all holding hands skipping and clapping looking like they were having the time of their life. None of these people knew each other and none of them previously looked like they would even entertain the idea of getting involved. Secondly the last song turning into a "I do like to be beside the seaside" being song by all involved actually makes me want to cry its such a perfectly happy memory. I look forward to having a party again, perhaps for no reason at all other than to get my friends together and have you guys play. You all really put so much effort into making my wedding go with a terrific swing and I am incredibly grateful for the fun, the forced mingling and the memories!
Send my best to everyone in Knitters Jig. Emily and Scott
Just a quick note to thank you and the band ever so much for Saturday night, the band was great and everyone really enjoyed it. I hope everything was ok for you and we didn't make fools of ourselves too much with the dancing!
We know where to come if we do it again!
All the best, Sarah and all at Derbyshire Veterinary Services .
we're just back from our honeymoon and I wanted to send a quick email to say thank you to Knitter's Jig for such a brilliant ceilidh at our wedding. Everyone had so much fun and they all remarked on how much they enjoyed it and how great the music was.
thank you again, Anne
Hi Glen and band
Thank you so much for playing at Liz and James' wedding on Saturday. The music was superb and the caller cleverly assessed the amount of instruction required. We had many compliments on how enjoyable the evening was, with the fine musicianship and dancing making a friendly informal celebration. We have passed your details to several interested guests.
Thank you. Best wishes Jenny & Nick
I'm embarrassed to write to you so late but really wanted to thank you for such a fantastic performance. Thank you for the special songs and wonderful playing, and well done for adapting the range of dances to work so well with so many children there. I had a great night and all our guests had a brilliant time. We were all in expert hands -
After a very hectic few days I finally have a day off work and can catch up with myself. I wanted to say a huge 'thank you' for last Saturday. What a fantastic night. Graham loved it and I'm so glad I got yourselves and didn't go down the disco route. Everyone got up and had a go at the dancing and you were all brilliant. I hope you managed to get some food in the break. I've had so many comments this week about how much people enjoyed themselves and one person is considering doing something similar for a fundraiser she is trying to organise for next year. It certainly worked out really well and I can now take a deep breath out -
with warmest wishes Penny and Graham
I just wanted to say thanks to you and the rest of the band for helping to make the wedding such a great day for us. It was great to see how many people wanted to get involved in the dancing – we both thought it was excellent.
Kind Regards Tim L
Hope you are all well, Just wanted to send you a BIG Thank you for the great evening you gave us at Great Creaton the other night EVERYONE enjoyed it, our visitors have gone back to their countries saying what a great night it was!:)
Kind regards Diana J
Dear Knitters Jig,
Ali and would like to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding on 1st August. We really enjoyed the music and dancing and have had so many compliments on the evening. People we have NEVER seen on the dance floor were reluctant to come off! It was a huge success and we would definitely recommend you!
Regards, Sarah C
Hi Glen and Norma
I've been busy at work this week which has flown by, probably due in part to still being on a high from the party at the weekend. I had to write to say that last Saturday Knitter's Jig were brilliant and, despite the odd fall and rallying the dancers, both guests and birthday girls had a wonderful time. Many thanks to you and the other members of the band for an entertaining evening. Should the opportunity arise I will definitely recommend you!
Best wishes Renata
Hi Glen and Knitters Jig
Just wanted to drop you all a little email to say how much we enjoyed our wedding on Saturday 22nd December and part of that was due to the fantsatic ceilidh you did! It was brilliant and got everyone talking and dancing and they have continued to talk about it since! I can't wait to see our DVD of the night to see all the dancing and general merriment!! You even got my stepbrother to dance and I have never known this to happen!
Thank you so much Joanna and John
Just a quick line to say that the Knitters Jig band and caller on Saturday went down a treat. Everybody enjoyed themselves and most people had a go at some point during the evening. Thank you very much I’d definitely recommend you. Regards, Matthew
