Excellent ceilidh band and hassle free to deal with. We hired Shenanigan for our wedding, they were really good at getting everyone involved and all had a great time. We also took the option of the DJ package so we could play our own music between sets. They added to making it a thoroughly enjoyable day for everyone and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

What a fantastic duo, David and Simon were amazing The music and singing was just what was needed. david was great, found out about my mum and added it into the evening. They played all the traditional Irish songs that we remembered our Dad singing, brought a lump to our throats We are all so very happy and grateful. And most of all you made our mothers 90th birthday so very special and all the family and friends Thank you so much a really terrific service, which we shall definitely use again The Cullen family

What a great night – band was great very friendly and asked us to submit any requests prior to party which we did. We had family over from Ireland at the party and even they agreed that the band were fabulous – praise indeed! Thanks Shenanigans for making the evening very special.

A fantastic band!! Very friendly and great music – had everybody on the dance floor. Thanks for a super night!

Hi Simon

I Just wanted say a big thank you for Saturday night.  The band were great and your efforts at controlling the dancers after they had had a few drinks was amazing.  I had loads of wonderful comments about how good you all were and how good the party was.
I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and have been asked to plan another one some time near Xmas. I would definitely ask your band to supply the music again.
Thank you again for such a wonderful time.
Please pass on my thank yous to the band.
Best wishes

Good Morning,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your band for the ceilidh at my 40th on Saturday,  Everyone had a fabulous time and on numerous occasion people commented to say how good you were, so thank you

Kind regards


Hi Simon,

what can I say??

you lot are amazing , we were already having a fantastic day, then Shenanigan turned up and took it to another level!

Everybody loved it and a few have already asked for your details for future bookings, which of course i have passed on.

is there anywhere I can leave a review for you?

Also, you played a song, the first one of the night , just after you set up before me and Tanny had our first dance,what was that song?

Thanks again Simon to you and the rest of Shenanigan for helping to make such a wonderful and unforgettable day for me, Tanya and all our friends and family.


Hi Buck

Apologies for taking so long to send this, but we just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you for playing at our wedding. You guys were fantastic! We still have guests saying how much they enjoyed listening to you. Many are asking where they could see you again – where’s the best place for us to find out where you are playing?

On a personal note, I’d also like to thank you for being so flexible! It was great knowing that you would all be ok setting up in the hall when we realised the rain was here to stay! Just one text to you in the morning, and I could enjoy the rest of my time getting ready. Also, when all the guests arrived so early as the weather meant we spent less time at the church. You guys were so unfazed.

Everyone has said that they enjoyed the wedding as it was so relaxed and fun – thank you for helping us create the day we wanted!

We hope to see you again very soon. Particularly my father-in-law – I haven’t seen him dance so much for years 🙂

Thank you all

Dear Pete,

HiJust wanted to say a big thanks to you and the boys for a great night on 5th March. Everyone thought you were fab and lots of people commented on how much they enjoyed the music.
My rotten hubby took a video of our horrific attempt at Mustang Sally, and popped it on You Tube!
Thought it might give you a laugh!
Best regards


Great that you all had such a good evening, I shall be in contact when we have events that could be of benefit to your band as we would love for you to play here again.

With regards

A weekend of food and drink from all over Europe selling wonderful food provided a feast for the eye and stomach during the Adur Festival. Huge dishes of paella cooked in the open made the mouth water (see the cover picture). Mountains of olives and exotic looking sausages all accompanied by live music from Shenanigan — another great festival event.

Hello Shenanigan Thank you so much for last night. The group were amazing and really chose the right music for our people, they loved it. I hope that Shananigan will be free to play for us at our next party, probably November time? I will let you know as soon as I have the date. Mel XXX

Thank you and the band for the great performance that you played for us at the Fishersgate Festival. We have been telling everyone who was not there what a treat they missed.

Hi Pete!!

Just to say thanks for another great night from you guys. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and my Mum had a fantastic night. No more big ones for a few years now thank goodness!!

See you soon.



Thanks Pete for providing such super entertainment for my 70th – I’m getting letters from people specifically saying how much they enjoyed the music.

Dear Peter and all of Shenanigan,

Just back from Cyprus this week following my party on the 23rd so sorry haven’t spoke sooner.

Thank you all very much for a great night you were excellent and everyone I have spoken to said they had a super time and commented on how good the band were really getting everyone up and dancing.

I had a great Birthday and thanks to you all for your help in this. I do hope you all enjoyed it too! Those dancers are brilliant aren’t they?

Cheers Trish.

Brighton Shenanigan made the afternoon! They were brilliant! What really made them different was the way that they involved our guests in the music which catered for all ages, even the young children we had at the party. Most of my family were down from Liverpool and the guys in the band got them dancing and singing, which is no mean feat! A great time was had by all! Shenanigan know how to get a party going, that’s for sure – and at a very reasonable price!’

Michael J Brighton, Sussex Shenanigan made the afternoon! They were brilliant”?


We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for playing at our Wedding Reception on Saturday.

We had the best time ever and the Band played such a huge part in everyone’s enjoyment of the day.

I think you would have known how much people enjoyed themselves by the number of people that were on the dance floor, of all ages.

I can only apologise for the quality of the dancing!

Thanks again for playing and please pass this on to all of the Band.

Nick & Sorcha

Thanks Peter and your other musician friends for playing at the Fishersgate Festival. You were great!

Hi Alan and Shenanigan

I would just like to say for myself and on behalf of all my family. Thank you for a brilliant evening Saturday night as the music makes the party. We had so many people come and say how good you were and how much they enjoyed themselves, especially my Dad. So thank you once again for all your hard work! We’ll be sure to recommend you if anyone wants a live band for hire!

Many Thanks

And Kind Regards



Thanks for a great day at Southwick Spring Fayre. See you at Shoreham in June.
