The Reel Note Ceili Band is based in and around Birmingham in the Midlands of England. English musicians of Irish heritage formed the band in 2000. In 2003 band members appearing with the Birmingham branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann brought back gold medals from the prestigious All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil at Clonmel.
Reel Note has built an enviable reputation as entertainment for Irish ceilis, Scottish Ceilidhs, Burns Nights, English Barn Dances, weddings, parish functions, birthdays and private parties, corporate hospitality functions and other social events.
Traditional melody instruments, accordion, fiddle, flute, whistle and mandolin, are backed by guitar, acoustic bass and bodhran. Jigs and reels, mazurkas and polkas, foxtrots, waltzes and songs provide hours of sparkling entertainment.
A traditional ceili is ideal for all kinds of gatherings. Young and old can join in the dance with or without experience. The band (pictured here at the famous Spotted Dog music venue in Alcester Street, Digbeth) won the approval of the International Maritime Organisation - the diplomats of world shipping - and has charmed many equally discriminating audiences. Under the capable direction of Vincent Jordan, your guests quickly discover that a ceili is great fun and suits any occasion, any age-group and skill.
