May 2021 update

We are looking forward to restarting barn dancing in July 2021.

Do contact us if you have a Covid delayed booking and we can reschedule.

Thank you to all those who are making new bookings.

Covid bookings Sept 20

We are putting together a package of barn dances for couples (from the same ‘bubble’) plus line dancing at social distancing. Currently the government limit is 30 people. If you think this would suit your function, then do get in contact with us.

Lounge Barn Dance

We were due to play at the conference Spring Harvest last week, which sadly had to be cancelled. We produced this short ‘lounge’ barn dance for their ‘at home’ production. You may like to try it………….

Bookings during Covid-19

If you have a future booking with us that cannot go ahead then we are offering a free transfer to a future date.

If you are interested in booking us for a future event, then we can reserve your date now and you can confirm when restrictions are lifted.

Wedding Barn Dance 14/12/19

Hi Mike

Thank you, and the band, for bringing extra fun and music to Charlotte and Matt ‘s special day.
It was a great occasion, with many guests saying how much they had enjoyed the “barn” dance. We certainly did.
The photographer has captured some excellent action shots of people promenading across the floor.
Once again thank you very much.
With kind regards

Barn Dance 16 Nov 19

Hi Mike,

Your guys gave us a fabulous evening last night at Southbourne Village Hall.

Please convey our thanks to them. When we were organising the night, everyone I spoke to said….. “can we have the same band and caller as last time”

….and they all remember Barbara.

We had lots of dances and Barbara kept them going all night. Thank you once again.

Hopefully we will be able to organise another one next year.

Kind regards,

Alan and Mandy

Wedding barn dance with Songbird 12/10/19

Saturday 12th October wedding barn dance with caller Dick, Lucy, Stephen & Luke in the band. Booking with SONGBIRD who provided music for the ceremony and drinks reception (extra services on website)

Hi Lucy,

WOW! We just wanted to thank you a million times over for everything you and the Woodsiders did for us last weekend. All of the music was absolutely perfect.

I’ve had so many people say how lovely it was to come in to Here Comes The Sun (especially on a drizzly day!) and you nailed our first dance too! Just thinking about any of those songs brings out the biggest possible smile on my face.

I hope Dick has recovered from trying to instruct everyone how to strip the willow!! We had so much positive feedback about how much everyone loved the ceilidh – old, young, two left feet or two right feet, it was perfect. Everyone seemed to genuinely enjoy themselves and I couldn’t help but join in despite being trodden on during every spin!

We are so thrilled that we decided to go down the route of a ceilidh, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants something a little different at a wedding or party.

It went down an absolute treat!

Thanks again, and all our love,

Emily & Ben

Fund Raising Barn Dance 23rd March 2019

Received from customer………………….

Good morning Mike, Many thanks for your message and for such a fun evening on Saturday. I have received lots of good comments about the music and caller and am pleased to tell you the event raised £2,225 for Voices for Hospices Choir. This will help offset the costs of the big concert in Winchester Cathedral on 12th October and enable us to donate more funds to our Hampshire hospices.

Once again, Thank you so much for all your support.  Best wishes, Janet.

Wedding Barn Dance 24/11/18

Wedding barn dance at Bury Court Barn. Amanda calling with Janet, Francis, Ian and Luke in the band.

Customer Feedback……..

Hi Mike,

I just wanted to say a big thanks to the Woodsiders for playing at our wedding on Saturday. We had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed the ceilidh and it was such a fun way to get everyone up and dancing!

If you need any words / testimonial, I would be more than happy to provide as I was really impressed and it really made our evening having the Woodsiders play. If you could pass on our gratitude to all of the members that would be appreciated.

Thanks again,
