  • What is included in the wedding package?
    The Reel Stramash is able to cater for any event by providing a tailor made package to suit your own requirements. With our experience, we know what makes a great evening of entertainment. We offer as much as we can for your big day. The Reel Stramash is able to offer you: A Ceilidh Band: This usually consists of two accordions and a drummer, but if needed we can supply keyboard, guitar, bass guitar and fiddle to give your function that 'big band' sound. Disco: We provide a free disco as standard! For those unable to keep up with the fast paced and lively ceilidh dancing, the disco always offers some welcome respite. Acoustic Reception Band: A traditional Scottish band, ideal for background music or walking down the aisle. Piper: Need a piper for your big day? Then look no further. The Reel Stramash can supply a piper into your overall package; all you have to do is ask!
  • How far in advance should I contact you?
