Having danced lots of times to the Gary Blair Ceilidh Band at accordion festivals, I can say without fear of contradiction that this band is the best in the business. Gary has the ability to turn any gig into New Year's Eve - whatever the time of year! Rob Howard
For the organisers or any function, the worry is always, will the people get up to dance? With the Gary Blair Ceilidh Band, the floor is always full, except when people need to catch their breathe. Gary talks you through the steps, so it doesn't matter if you don't know what to do. Dances old and new, fantastic music, a laugh and better exercise than any aerobic class. Gary's ceilidhs are never forgotten and always leave you wanting to book him for another one. Heather Murray
