"Heriot-Watt University's Alumni Association hired the Wild Geese for a Ceilidh in June 2009. They were very professional, well dressed and enthusiastic about the task. Their AV equipment that they brought along was perfect for the venue and the set up was all completed prior to the event which meant that there was no disruption. The music was of a very high standard and they even offered to play Celtic Guitar while the meal was being served, which was excellent.
The caller was great and he got in about each of the groups of dancers and ensured that everyone was comfortable with what they were doing. This was especially beneficial to our event as we had people attending from Norway, Mexico, Poland, Germany, Singapore and Australia. All in all; they were great value for money and I would recommend them to any other prospective hirers, with no hesitation."

I just want to say how wonderful it was to have you and your band play at our wedding. You were fabulous. Many of our Scottish guests commented on how you were the best caller they had seen. It was just the perfect start to the festivities of the night and I want to thank you for doing such a wonderful job. As one of the many people who had never participated in such a dance, I felt very comfortable and able to do the dances with your instructions. The music was SOO great and I just had the best time.
Thanks so much again! Norah
Just a quick note to say a big thank you to you and Wild Geese for a fantastic ceilidh party last Friday. It was a tribute to the music that so many folks were on the floor from the start and fully participated all evening. We loved the instruments ! Ian and Rachel McWilliam
Thank you for making this such a memorable day

A good time was
had by all !
Dear Andrew, Jim and Steve, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, you made our night a complete success !! The way you made everyone get up and dance all night was fantastic - especially the Germans and the Americans (being Ceilidh virgins) had a blast ! And I didn't want to miss a single dance ! And thank you Jim, for doing that solo for me, I loved your version of it - and Stephen loved his surprise. We could not wish for a better band, we were so delighted. Thanks so much Natalie and Stephen @ Craigielaw Golf Club, North Berwick, july 2010
Your band was fantastic, and you did a superb job getting people up onto the dance floor. The guests really enjoyed the music, and the Norwegians especially loved the whole ceilidh experience. Thank you so much for playing such great music for us. We all had a great time dancing to it.

Dear Andrew, Just to say a huge 'thank you !' to you and the band for an absolutely fantastic evening on Friday. Everybody wanted to know what band it was and I hope it brings you more gigs. I was amazed at how you managed to play, walk round and call dances all at the same time ! Thanks again, Moira
