We Play for Pubs and Clubs
Get Jigalots into a pub environment or small club environment and you will find yourself listening to traditional music with a real swing. There'll also be a few songs thrown in. When the drinks are flowing you could even find yourself doing a bit of jigging around with the crowd too!
We Play for Dances
Ceilidh – pronounced kay-lee – is an energetic form of English folk-dancing. Every dance at an English ceilidh involves dancing with one or more other people. The purpose of a Ceilidh is to have a good time dancing to good rhythmic music. English Ceilidhs are enjoyed by the absolute novice through to the dancers with decades of dancing under their feet. The caller will explain every dance beforehand to make sure everyone knows how it goes, and keep reminding you what comes next.
What do you wear? It’s not American, so the check-shirts, cowboy hats and boots, not to mention the very full skirts can stay at home and watch the telly. You will be most comfortable if you wear shoes and clothes you can get hot in and bop around in without turning up in gym kit! Think cotton, short(er) sleeves, lower heels.
Calling the Dances
We will also find you a caller for your ceilidh / barndance. We have a list of excellent callers that we work with regularly who we know will ensure everyone has a good time
