Covers Line-Up – More info

Quickly becoming one of our most popular choices is the 5 piece covers line-up.

Clients opt for this when they want an authentic ceilidh band (not just a tacked-on ceilidh set, like most wedding bands do), but also a variety of classic tunes performed live, to cater to all tastes.

Here’s a little bit more information about how we do our “covers” sets.

We have focussed our set list into a few broad categories, and selected songs which are suited to our singers and instruments. They’re tried-and-true classic tunes that are great for dancing. Those listed below represent some of our typical sets.

Have a look at the different categories, and let us know if there are any that you definitely DO or DON’T want included, or if there are any single songs you especially want omitted.



Each covers set lasts around 20-30 minutes.



We find this approach allows the band enough flexibility to shape the covers sets according to how the evening is progressing, and how the audience is responding, while also giving you as the client some input into the overall styles and choices.

In the past, we gave a long list of the songs we’ve done, and then clients chose the songs they wanted – that meant redesigning the set list from scratch, with transitions, including songs that might not perfectly suit the singer etc… Once we know your general tastes and preferences, it’s better for the band to have scope to shape the set according to how things are going on the dancefloor.

This way, we can ensure that we deliver the best show possible, every time.



If you have very particular song choices that you’d like to hear, but which are not on the list, then we recommend including the DJ in the package you book – the ceilidh/covers/DJ combined package is hard to beat, and will really deliver a versatile solution and a memorable night for you and your guests.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch, we’ll be happy to help!

(*We suggest keeping in one of these tunes as an ideal show-stopper!)
