Pipley is a traditional barn dance and ceilidh band based in Bath. We are available to play in Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Consisting of 6 experienced musicians + caller, Pipley will help your party go with a swing, providing lively toe-tapping music and dances that all can enjoy: reels, jigs, waltzes and more; music from Scotland, Ireland, England and beyond. The buzzword is FUN! Chaotic, hilarious mayhem is actively encouraged!
We have played for weddings, birthday parties for all ages, engagement parties, anniversaries, community events, fundraisers, Burns Nights, and more. We have played in village halls, social clubs, marquees, the Bath Assembly Rooms, real barns, pubs, church halls, the Cheltenham Pittville Pump Room and more. Whatever type of venue and event, we could be the ideal band for you.
Timings are very flexible but a typical evening event would run as follows:
7pm Guests start arriving, getting drinks etc (background music provided by the band- live music and/or taped music)
7.30 Dancing starts when enough people are there
8.30 Break for food -lengths of breaks vary depending on the time it takes to get everyone (including the band!) fed!
9.00 Dancing restarts
10pm-ish last dance
We can discuss the type of event with you and arrange whatever will work best for you, with earlier or later later start or finish times. Afternoon events are also possible. Special requests can often be accommodated. Just ask!
