  1. Ian O’Rourke’s Irish Night

    I would like to thank you and the band for an incredible evening on Saturday. As usual the music was fantastic and everyone loved the evening. We would definitely want to hire them again in the future. Can you pass my thanks on to both of them please.

  2. Paul Joyce’s Irish Ceilidh

    We had a great time with Brand of Fire at our Civil Partnership party. They were fun and considerate from the word go – turning up on time and very professional. They entertained everyone, young and old, generating an irresistible sound. Paul taught us how to do the steps and we had a ball trying to remember the moves – much laughter all round. This talented traditional band are an asset to any celebration and a million times better than the usual disco which is usually too loud and you’ve heard the music a million times before anyway. Ours was an unforgettable evening.

  3. Jennifer & Charlie’s Wedding Ceilidh

    Firstly, I must thank you again for the fantastic performance you all gave at our wedding – Charlie and I are now formally converts to ceilidh! And of course, you know you’ve done a good job of getting everyone in the party spirit when, approaching midnight, as you packed away your kit, the mother of the groom could be heard to say “what a fantastic way to start the evening!

  4. Joe’s Irish Themed Birthday Party

    Thanks very much for a great show on Wednesday. Everyone thought you guys were great.
