WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO?
The Reel Fling are a three piece ceilidh band with disco offering an entire evening of fun filled entertainment, As a band we have over 12 years experience. The exclusive blend of ceilidh and disco we bring to your night caters for all musical tastes and comes from our energy and enthusiasm in providing quality entertainment. We cover all areas of Scotland but we will consider travelling outside of Scotland.
You also don’t have to worry if you don't know exactly what to do because every dance that we do play for you, we have a caller who will talk the guests through the steps. In terms of how long the night will last, typically it is around 4 hours. We aim to get all guests dancing from the minute we get on stage until the very last dance.
