Gents, thank you (again) SO MUCH for doing such a cracking job last night. I’ve heard nothing but praise about you all. Guests that I’ve spoken to loved you all and said how good they thought you were, how well you ran the evening and just generally how much fun they had! You were brilliant. You helped make our special day extra special. I particularly enjoyed walking into the ballroom to find that you had many of the male dancers howling like wolves! It was fantastic! Thank you all.

Derek was fab. He kept the dance floor filled, people on their feet and their take on ceilidh music is ace. I’m pretty sure at one point I was dancing to old McDonald had a farm

On behalf of all the committees who created the School of Biological Sciences Ball as well as all our guests I would just like to say a massive thank you to you guys. You did a fantastic job making our first SBS ball a truly special one and really helped to set the bar high! It was great to see a band who were so keen and interactive with our guests, really helping to create a great atmosphere in the room. I’m so happy we picked your band to play for us and undoubtedly will be asking of your services for future events to come!

Everyone really enjoyed themselves and our lecturer was very impressed with you all – he said he’s never seen people rush to the dance floor for the first dance! :D
“Hipflask were absolutely amazing, really can’t recommend them enough.  Very prompt at responding to emails and were fantastic on the night, they had everyone up dancing and our guests had a great time.  Hipflask were very understanding and flexible on the evening, they helped the night run smoothly.  Very professional but great fun with it, I can’t fault them!  Really lovely guys and would happily work with them again”

Great night can’t remember when I had such a laugh! the image of my male friend dancing with another guy will never leave me!
Absolutely fantastic night. Still chuckling about the hooley animals dance. Best ceilidh ever.
Christmas Party
Fraser Castle

Contact with the band prior to the ball was excellent, they were quick with replies and always tried to answer any questions we had.
In terms of value for money, for what seemed like a relatively small price the experience we had on the night with the band was excellent. They played a great show and all the guests had an amazing time dancing the night away.
Thanks for all your hard work!

Treetops 

Would like to thank you once again for putting on a fantastic ceilidh. You got everyone up on the dance floor and involved and helped me to bully more of my friends and family to get up and dance!! It was especially good for my foreign friends because the dances were clearly explained and the banter was flowing. And of course, 10 out of 10 for your forward role, Gary!!

Thank you all so very much for making Laura’s 21st party ceilidh so much fun. Everyone enjoyed themselves – all ages! You kept everyone on the dance floor, called all the dances so that everyone could join in and made it all go so smoothly. To anyone looking for a ceilidh band, I would certainly recommend Hipflask – fun, easy to contact, professional and really good at what they do! Thank you all again. I’d love to know if you are ever playing a public dance any time in the future!

We had a fantastic Summer Ceilidh 2015 thanks to the amazing Hipflask Ceilidh Band. You guys were so much fun and really easy going which made all of us want to get up for a dance! You managed to get complete beginners completely at ease and enjoying the dancing every bit as much as the more experienced in the group. You really made it a fantastic atmosphere and an event to remember. To people looking for a band for their event, Derek and the guys are professional, fantastic at managing/coaching and encouraging the room to dance giving a brilliant Ceilidh experience! Thanks again!

I’m one of the psychology graduates from the ceilidh on Friday night at the Carmalite Hotel. You guys were absolutely outstanding!

The Experience Caledonia team just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Hipflask Ceilidh band who were utterly fantastic at our event! Derek and the band were extremely friendly and helpful with the planning of the event and were great at getting everyone up to dance on the night!
It was the Downstairs first ever ceilidh and Hipflask done an amazing job! The audience loved the music and the ceilidh host, Gary!  The event wouldn’t have been as great without Hipflask! 10/10!!

A big huge thank you to Hipflask Ceilidh Band for providing the entertainment at our wedding.  Derek was so helpful and accommodating from initial enquiry right up to the big day, we knew we had made the right choice!!  A fantastic band that had all the guests up on their feet dancing the whole evening!  Gary was absolutely brilliant calling the dances and having a drummer gave the standard Ceilidh band lineup an extra edge for the high tempo numbers.  Everyone has said what a fantastic night they had and all the kids loved it too.   Would recommend them to anyone – couldn’t be beaten on quality or price! Thanks guys
