Knitter’s Jig                     Ceilidh Band

Dear Glen,

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)


Hi Glen,

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)


Hi Glen,

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)


Hi Glen,

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)


Hello Glen

Just a quick note to say thanks again for last night, you guys were amazing - can’t believe you can get such a big band sound out of three musicians, and often two when you’re on the floor getting everyone organised.  As you could see, everyone was enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.  Most importantly, it raised good money towards the school in Zambia and will make a huge difference to the children there.

Hope you all got home safely, many thanks again,  

Anne-Marie C  (Feb 17)


Hi Glen,

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)


 Hi Glen

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)


Dear Glen

Just want to thank you and all the band for giving us such a good evening last night. .Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and no-one keeled over though I suspect a few might not be able to walk today!  Don't know why I was worried that they may not dance, may have to get a bigger hall next time…

Thanks again,  Sharon and Kathy (Nov 16)


Hi Glen,

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)


Hi Glen,

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)


Knitter’s Jig

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)


Hi Glen,

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)


Hi Glen,

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)


Hi Glen,

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)


Dear Glen

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.

Thanks again

Best Wishes Judith G  (Mar 16)

Hello Glen,

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)


Hello Glen,

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)


Hi Glen

I just wanted to say a huge thanks for Saturday night - it was absolutely fantastic. So many people have said what a great time they had and we have some hilarious videos and photos of how not to do it!!!!  I really appreciate you fitting in with the timings as I know that there was some hanging around at the beginning.  Let me know if I can leave a favourable review anywhere and I will do so.

All the best,  Helena M  (Jan 16)


Hi Glen

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)


Knitter’s Jig

Thank you for last night. Everyone had a great time.

Paul H (Nov 15)


Hi Glen,

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)


Glen

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)


Hi Glen

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)


Dear Glen

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 -  and most of them kept dancing all night!  We’ve never thrown a party so big (at our wedding we had 60 for a meal!) and you made it very memorable for us and for everyone else.  You have such an infectious sound and style, people just couldn’t help but dance -  even the teenagers!

We are still grinning from ear to ear at the memories -  so thank you once again.

Warm regards. Rick and Pam L (Sep 15)


Hi Glen,

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)


HI

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)


Hi Glen,

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)


Hello  there,

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)


Hello Glen.

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)


Hi Glen

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)


Dear Knitter's

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)


Hi Glen

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)


Hi Glen

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 so much for all you did and rest assured that we will recommend you to anyone who asks!!

Thanks again.  Andy B (Nov 14)


Hi Glen,

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)
