We've really enjoyed playing at all the events we've been invited to and we've received lots of compliments about our lively performances. Thanks everyone for your comments, it's been a pleasure. Here's what a few have kindly written:

Your thanks and tributes.
"...Union Street played at our daughter's wedding celebrations at the Inn at Whitewell. We would like to thank you for the wonderful time everyone had. We have had so many positive comments, with many of our American guests saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Thank you once again. Regards, Linda" Whitewell, July 2016.
"...A belated big thank you to the talented Union Street Ceilidh Band and the excellent caller for a most memorable evening. Thank you for making our Silver Wedding Celebrations so special; without exception all our family and friend had a most splendid time. With our very best wishes and gratitude, Joan and André." Clitheroe, May 2016.
"...just wanted to thank you and the band for an amazing evening at our recent celebrations. The band were polite and friendly and so accommodating to the need for flexibility re timings. I was a little nervous of the plan for them to set up whilst we were eating but they were so discrete I never noticed them!. The music was fabulous. Many guests commented on the wonderful music and the way the caller encouraged everyone on to the dance floor. The music brought young and old together with the youngest dancer aged 6 dancing along with 74 year old.
Those who didn't wish to dance enjoyed being able to chat without the usual requisite shouting over disco music. Everyone had a smile on their faces. Would recommend Union Street Band to all and would happily book again for future celebrations. Thank you for making our celebration even more special. Very best wishes, Anne M" Wrea Green, May 2015.
"...thank you to you all. It was a wonderful night and the feedback and facebook comments about the event have been brilliant. If we do the theme again we will certainly be in touch. Carol" Rainford, February 2015.
"...just a note to say thanks for a great night on the 10th, feedback is that everyone had the best time in a long while. Quite a few have put your details on Facebook. Will be in touch for a future do. Best wishes and thanks again to all the group. Stephen" Accrington, January 2015.
"...just wanted to say thank you for providing us with the most amazing ceilidh. It was fantastic, we had a great time and all our guest loved it. Kind regards, Mr & Mrs Joy." Windermere, August 2014.
"On behalf of all who were at the 20th Anniversary Barn Dance on Saturday I want to thank the Union Street Band for such a great evening of music and dance you put on for us. It was a truly memorable night for us. The feedback our social committee received was all very positive. Best wishes, Roger" Warrington, July 2014.
"We just wanted to thank you for the ceilidh on Saturday night at the Civic Hall in Ramsbottom. We both had a wonderful evening and everyone enjoyed your music and banter and said how good the band were. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others! Thanks again, and have a good summer, all the best, Julie and Alastair Bell" June 2014
"Not only was everything very professional; we also thought the band were fantastic and the caller was brilliant, he had just the right mix of warmth, humour and gentle coercion! Many of our guests have told us that they thoroughly enjoyed the dancing and thought the band were excellent. We would be very happy to recommend you to anyone who is considering having a ceilidh. With kind regards Phillip and Sarah" Woodford, April 2014.
"Will and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding. We had an amazing day and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it especially the ceilidh. Lots of family and friends have commented on how fun the ceilidh was and perfect the music was you played during our ceremony and drinks reception. We just need to think of another excuse now to have a party so we can do it all again! Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band. Best wishes Amanda and Will." Stanley House, April 2014
"We would just like to thank you, your band and Liz for making last night such an enjoyable evening.

Many thanks Chris & Gill." Preston, June 2013.
"..thanks a lot for last night to you and the others. I thought the evening was perfect and have not spoken to one person who had anything but praise for the dance. I have had lots of requests for another such evening so perhaps a midsummer ceilidh might be in order!?! We managed to raise about £650 so we are pretty pleased with that. Until next time......Love Alice." Broadbottom, February 2013
"We had a fabulous night in January with Union Street Band and Alison Scott calling. We were mobbed out and the atmosphere was great. There were lots of new faces, many of whom were as a result of Union Street's popularity, both as a great band to dance to and as fiddle tutor. Our thanks to USB." Phoenix Ceilidhs, Adlington. January 2013
"..what a fantastic band you have behind you! I still can’t believe you managed to fill the floor for 3 hours! I think we danced every single dance that night. You were a total hit with all our guests (the best ceilidh they have ever been to). Thank you so much for making our day memorable and so much fun. Best wishes Shama & Gavin." Thornton Manor, July 2012
"..thank you for a super evening again on Saturday. I hope you all enjoyed the evening as much as we did. I am once again to ask if you would join us next year? Harry" March 2012
"..a big thank you all for the fabulous entertainment you provided at my birthday party. I have never enjoyed a party as much and all of my friends and relatives said how good it was. Many reported that they had never laughed so much for years and that their jaws ached! A ceilidh really is a fantastic way of getting everyone to join in and get to know everyone else. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the band and the fabulous caller, he was so funny. Thank you again for making the evening perfect. If there is anywhere I can put a review let me know. Bev x" December 2011
"..we would like to thank you, the rest of the band and the caller for playing at our wedding at Beeston Manor. We had a fantastic time and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the dancing. A good bit of exercise for everyone who participated and always good fun as we inevitably forgot, or failed to keep up with, the required steps! Hope you managed to a get a bacon barm as well. Once again many thanks for contributing to what was a great day for both us. Joe and Jo" December 2011

"Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for the wonderful job you all did on our wedding day! It was truly special and everyone has commented on how good you were. We had a fabulous reception and it was great to have so many of our family and friends up and dancing with us thanks to you!

"..thank you all for a super evening's entertainment on Saturday. It was enjoyed by all generations (from a 4 year old to my 87 year old Uncle) and even those who, beforehand, had not been keen on the idea found they could join in and have fun. Two of my daughter's single girl friends wrote in the guest book, 'Loved the country dancing! Best dancing I can remember.' and 'Really enjoyed the dancing with the entertainment'. Those who didn't want to dance (or needed a rest between dances) appreciated being able to hear the music yet still enjoy their conversations. So, again, a big thank you to you all for your enormous contribution to making the occasion such a happy one. Best regards, Irene" July 2010
"I thought it was a great choice in booking you, next time we will make sure there is a bigger dance floor!! I'm glad we took the decision to open up the marquee near the dance area, because more people were sat outside because of the great weather, that way they could hear you well. I would certainly recommend you to others and most certainly book you again in the future, I thought your caller Roger was brilliant and really got people going. Its a credit to you and the rest of your band members for helping us make our event a success. The comments have been amazing, one supplier said, 'it's the best event we have ever been to'. Regards Alison" June 2010.
"Thanks to you all for the fantastic entertainment at our wedding! Everyone enjoyed the music and the atmosphere was brilliant! We really enjoyed listening to you playing and thank you so much for playing the Blooming Heather song! My dad loved it and keeps singing it now! You all played really well and we will definitely come to the next Ceilidh! Keep in touch with any updates on events! Best Wishes, Heather & Malcolm." June 2010
"Just wanted to say a (belated) thank you for the brilliant ceilidh you put on for our wedding! We spent last weekend watching some videos people had taken and everyone looked like they were having a fantastic time! Thank you again and best wishes for future gigs. Melissa & Charlie" May 2010.
"We would like to thank you and all the members of the Union Street Ceilidh Band for your wonderful contribution to our wedding celebration.
