What people have said about Whippletree
"Whippletree Ceilidh Band An excellent choice if you want everyone to have fun through fabulous music and dance. From the minute they start you can guarantee a smile on everyone's face. The dances are well explained and easy to follow. An absolute joy from start to finish, Highly recommended." Sue.
Barn dance: "Whippletree were such a great ceilidh band for a charity barn dance that I organised last year. They arrived with all the equipment they needed and set up quick, even letting us use their speakers to play music when they weren’t playing! They got everyone dancing and I heard so many compliments about them throughout the night. Would definitely use them again, and recommend. Great band!" Ella.
50th Birthday Party: "Fabulous Band I booked Whippletree for my 50th Birthday Party. I wanted live music rather than a disco. The evening was a huge success. Everyone was up dancing and enjoying themselves. It was great fun for all ages even the youngsters. After my party one of my friends enjoyed the event so much, she booked the band for her 80th! Thanks for making my evening special." Marie.
Formal Dinner - Made Fun: "I organised a 200+ Person formal dinner with speeches and presentations, but wanted something really different for our entertainment. Whippletree really came through and bought the night alive. So much so that the Lord Mayor of Plymouth asked if they were playing at the next dinner as she had so much fun, she wanted to see them again. They managed to pry even the shyest wall flowers out of their seats to join in. I can not recommend them enough." Pete.
"Whippletree What a talented, easy going, toe tapping bunch they are.. wonderfully entertaining... so much so, that we keep getting them back for our charity Barn dances ... and go to see them at other events when possible. Guaranteed a fun experience." Barbara.
Sound Engineered and booked for festival events: "Worked and booked these guys many times over the years,for festivals and also private functions. Their attitude and work ethic and sound is great, very lively and always an entertaining set, when Chris does the calling he explains everything needed for a pleasurable evening. Have known them for years and as a group of talented musicians, they get better and better, each time I hear them." Nick.
Barn dance: "Whippletree are a fabulous band and such lovely people playing. They have played for us several times and again later this year. I couldn't ask for anyone better or more experienced to come and play for us. I can't recommend them enough......fantastic!" Mary.
"Wonderful band! I've booked Whippletree several times over the last few years and they are absolutely brilliant! I'd challenge anyone to keep their feet still while they are playing and I recommend them highly!" Alex.
