Ceilidh band based in the North-west of England.

Some recent feedback 
from people who have booked the Earthquakers

"Everyone who attended really enjoyed the range of music and songs, the musicality and the dancing and we found Rob’s calling style very encouraging & supportive."
Ashley McCraight,  December 2017

“... thrilled with the way the Ceilidh went on Saturday and it was largely down to the great music you guys put out there – it was fantastic. You really made the whole evening go with a swing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.   ...calling was absolutely excellent!! Clear instructions put across in a concise way without long-winded waffling and unnecessary interventions”

“The music was expertly played, not too loud (given the average age of the audience!) and great to dance to. The dance instructions were easy to follow and put across with humour and a large dose of tolerance. People have said what fun they had and those who normally don't dance (including my other half), suddenly losing their inhibitions and strutting their stuff! Thank you so much to you all, I will recommend you to anyone interested.”

"Guys. An amazing time last night at T and M’s wedding. Everyone, and I do mean everyone loved it. Thanks so much. Best wedding music ever."

“I wanted to write a quick email to express our gratitude for the terrific ceilidh you put on at our wedding two weeks ago. I must admit that we were initially a little uncertain about the idea of employing an English band (having done almost all of our ceilidh-ing north of the border), but our concerns couldn't have been more unjustified. The music filled the room wonderfully; the songs were lively, the dances interesting and the calling capable of keeping 50+ novices swirling giddily about the dancefloor in a joyful, and almost-rhythmical, blurr. Everyone, from old-hats to previously sceptical first-timers, young and old, and not least the two of us, were having a tremendous amount of fun, and that is exactly what was wanted. Combined with your friendly, no fuss approach and very reasonable fee, we couldn't have asked for more. With thanks again, two very happy customers”

“...just a big thank you to you and the band for Saturday night. Loads of guests commented later on 'that great music' and 'very patient' caller! You helped to make it a great 60th birthday for me.”

"thanks so much to you and the rest of the band for your fabulous music and dances, we all had a lot of fun, would definitely recommend the Earthquakers to anyone planning a Ceilidh"

"that's the best ceilidh I've been to in ages, and I live in Scotland!"
