Wedding in Beaconsfield,

Hi Tracey (Warble Entertainments)

Abi's ceilidh band were FANTASTIC!!! really really went down a storm.  I was slightly concerned as my family are Irish and my partners couldnt be more English so I thought only half the people would be dancing.  Everyone was up and dancing, the Caller was great and really knew how to get everyone involved. 
Your service was brilliant, hassle free - next big event ill give you an e-mail.

Many thanks again, Marie

Gig for Maidstone,

Rochester Wedding,

Hi Abi's

We really enjoyed the irish music at our wedding, thank you ever so much.  All
our guests said how much it added to the atmosphere - just perfect!  I
think a few of the kids had a really good dance, too!
We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.
With kind regards to your and your colleagues,
Sam & Adam.

St Patricks weekend in
Horsham, West Sussex

Dear Abi's,

I just wanted to say thanks to you and the others for making last night such a great  evening. We have already had loads of comments from people saying what a good evening they had, which is brilliant as I have to say I was a bit worried beforehand as to how a ceili would go down (itís not exactly the wildest village in the world). The calling was marvelously enthusiastic, and the music was absolutely wonderful , and honestly I donít think we have run another fund raising event where so many people have been laughing and smiling so much. Please pass on our thanks and compliments to the others, and Happy St Patricks day!

Dear Abi's,

Thank you all so much for making our party so special. Like ourselves all our friends and famliy thought your music was absolutely fabulous. You are all very talented musicians and will certainly be remembered and talked about for a long time to come. No doubt a great time was had by all.

We would love to hear you play again and hope we will have the opportunity in the not too distant future.
Thank you once again.
Very Best Wishes to you all.

Birthday party in Tonbridge,

We were lucky enough to have "The Abi's Ceili Band" play at my Mothers 80th Birthday party. They band were wonderful, they were very accommodating, professional and friendly. They played the full compliment of all the Irish favourite songs and ballads, utilising all the various musical instruments in the process. Extremely good value for money & their show made the party a massive success. I sincerely look forward to seeing them play again.  Go raibh mile maith agat.

Kind regards Paddy Riordan
