"Hi Jim, Thank you and the band so much for the music on Saturday (ceilidh/disco at Assembly Roxy on 13th June 2015) - it was great and really got everyone up and enjoying it! I don't know what happened at the end and sorry I didn't get the chance to say thanks and bye. Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to everyone. Phil did such a good job too of getting the best from the playlist I sent him. Kind regards"

"What a great night we had at the Old St Pauls Episcopal in Jeffrey Street on our last night in Scotland (Oct 25, 2013). It was the first ceilidh for almost all of our group of nine, including 7 teenage boys! after a week's trip to the Scottish Borders. I'm grateful to the wonderful Norloch ceilidh band. We loved the music and straight away were all made to feel very welcome. All the dances were well explained and enormous fun! Thank you!!"

Katherine Rabeau




"An excellent ceilidh for my wife's sixtieth in the Village Hall (22 September 2012). Great fiddle music and calling with lots of explanation, delivered with a smile. All our guests had a great time and really enjoyed themselves. Would book again!"

"Hi Philip, Thanks to you and your band for all your patience on Monday night {20 December 2010}. The venue seemed to have forgotten to leave you a space to set up! However, it was a good night, the Ceilidh went well and was appreciated by all. Have a merry Christmas"

"Hi Philip, I just wanted to contact you, and say thanks for providing the band [Norloch pool Ceilidh Trio featuring Sheena, Rob and Owen], for our party last night [19 June 2010]. It went very well, and they were great at getting people dancing, and helping the 'foreigners' with the steps.
It was a very enjoyable evening for my 40th birthday, so I may do it all again for my 80th! Best Regards"
Graeme Allan


"Thanks to the band for the entertainment provided at our fundraising ceilidh at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange on Friday 4th September 2009.

Thanks to Phil for being so adaptable with the various events we had, and to all the band for making it a great night"

"Hello Philip, This is Heather Clark I booked you last year [2008] for a 60th birthday party at Newtongrange Mining Museum which was a fantastic night and Stuart whose party it was loved every moment of it especially when he dressed up as Elvis and the other members of your band were fantastic with all the special people who were at the party ..would it be possible to book you again for a lady we support who will be 80 in July the date is Saturday 18th July 2009 and its being held at St Matthews hall in Rosewell its a bigger hall but I think the 4 piece would be good ..hope to hear from you soon"

"This is just a letter to thank you again for the wonderful input your band had to my mother’s 80th birthday party in July [2007]. All our relatives and friends are still talking about the party and the fantastic music you provided. It was so good to have a mixture of ceilidh and other styles, the band was certainly very versatile. We will certainly be in touch, next time, we want to hire music for any other events we plan"

"Just a short note to say a very big thank you for the services of the Norloch Ceilidh Band, which made our Wedding such a magical and joyous occasion. So many people have written & verbally commented on how wonderful the dancing went & were so impressed in the professionalism of your very talented group. Special mention was made by many about the expertise of the ‘caller’, so please pass on our gratitude.
Once again our gratitude for helping our Wedding be so special."

"Many thanks to you & the Norloch Ceilidh Band for helping to make our daughter’s Wedding reception so successful on Saturday.
I think the fact that the floor was seldom empty was proof that everyone was enjoying the music. I think we could have literally danced all night!!!"

"I felt I must write and express my admiration for your wonderful band which played so well at our Wedding on Monday at Prestonfield House Hotel. You had gone to so much trouble to play Israeli music and to find those two girls was a stroke of genius. Alison was a terrific compere and I thought that everyone picked up the dances so quickly and so well. It was amazing how the Scottish and Jewish dances blended in so well together. Many, Many thanks to you all."

Thanks again for helping to make our big day a real celebration!!!"

Thank you so much for the music you guys played at our Wedding. Everybody loved it and the dancing was so much fun. Even those who were doing it for the first time found it fun, thanks to the dancing being called. For a three-piece [Norloch Ceilidh Trio] you guys were powerful and solid. Thank you for being a big part of the success of our wedding day."
