If it's a Ceilidh, Irish, Scottish, Barn Dance or Hoe-Down performance with a Caller you are looking for, The Hookies can deliver it, complete with a contemporary set at the end of the night to leave your guests happily exhausted and wanting more.
An experienced and professional 5-piece band comprising bass, drums, guitar, fiddle, melodeon and vocals, The Hookies are widely recognised as one of the UK's best dance bands, playing fast furious jigs and reels, classic songs for all to enjoy and leading guests in traditional dances with our Caller ‘extraordinaire’ who gets everyone up on the dance floor, having a laugh.
With over 100 bookings a year, they must be doing something right! Part of that is the rare combination of having both a great band AND a great Caller. All members of the band are talented musicians who have performed with many well-known artists over the years (including Fairport Convention, The Drifters, Feast Of Fiddles, Clarion and Little Johnny England - to name drop a few!).
So, you may be looking for corporate entertainment with a difference, a riotous night of audience participation for a special party, a village ‘do’ or student gig, or simply a flexible and professional band to entertain guests of all ages at your wedding? Whatever the event, The Hookies are guarantee to deliver a great show, as they have done over and over, from Dublin to Dubai and beyond…
The Wedding Show
Designed to get guests of all ages to get up and celebrate that special day together. The band even play a traditional wedding dance as the 1st dance if required, removing the moment for the bride & groom that makes them wish the earth would open up and swallow them whole. With a contemporary set at the end of the night, who needs a disco?
Whatever the event, an Irish night goes down well every time. With dances and tunes from the emerald isle, mixed with good old fashioned sing-along numbers everyone loves to get involved with after a few beers, to rip-roaring numbers from Irish bands such as The Pogues and U2, this show is sure to leave you hot, sweaty, and shouting for more.
A Highland Fling conjures up images of pipers, haggis and fine single malts in magnificent surroundings. They can't provide any of that, but they can provide a professional Scottish Fling playing tunes from north of the border, songs old and new and some of the best recognised dances in the world. The Hookies come equipped with their very own Caller, so everyone can get involved and experience classic Scottish dancing.
Merry England!!! Why not have a traditional English Barn Dance at your event, or just have one any way! A great social occasion for villages, PTA's and so much more, and a great way to socialise. All the dances in this set are from England, mixed with classic songs, new and old, for guests to join in with and boogie away to. A true classic, any Barn Dance is well and truly alive with The Hookies playing at it.
Designed through experience to give (mainly) corporate events that special twist, The Hookies Hoe-Down really packs a punch for guests of all ages, professions and abilities! Theme your conference dinner, book The Hookies and sit back whilst everyone networks through the dancing and generally make fools of themselves around about 12:30am!
