7 Hills – Birthday Party Ceilidh

If you are holding a birthday party ceilidh then here is some information to help you along the way.  As an experienced ceilidh band we are accustomed to playing birthday parties throughout Edinburgh, just check out our instagram.

Never arranged a ceilidh before?

Its quite simple really!  We arrive 1 hour before you would like us to start to setup, soundcheck and get prepared.  After this we will go onto play the ceilidh which is normally anything up to 2 x 75 minute sets for a very energetic crowd!

What if the dancers get tired?

We can always play some background music in-between dances if people get tired!  It is important to play the room by ear on each night which is what we do. 

Calling the Dances

Having a good caller is so important and in our band we have several experienced callers who will guide your guests through every dance.  We even send out band members onto the dancefloor to do demonstrations and arrange people in the correct formations!

PA System

Birthday parties are normally held in private function rooms so we are usually required to bring our own PA system which is a Yamaha Stage-pas p600i.   You’re very welcome to use the PA system for speeches and playing songs via your iPhone during our intermission. As long as we’re able to take the PA system away when we finish the ceilidh!

Once the booking is confirmed we will always send out our online event form so you can fill in all the details of the event.  All the information is stored in one place and so there can be no misunderstanding about logistics.  We have done this many times before and came to the conclusion that our event form is efficient way of getting the logistics right!


For a quick personalised quote please get in touch with the date and venue of your event, we aim to respond within 24 hours.
