“Calm Doon helped to create a friendly, happy atmosphere with brilliant music that made people want to dance. We got the wedding we wanted – a party atmosphere where our Scottish and Spanish guests intermingled and had a good time together.
Many of our guests remarked on what a great band you were; they especially enjoyed the snippets of Spain you managed to work in to the evening.”George & Lucy

“Calm Doon played at our wedding, igniting the atmosphere with ceilidh music – they are a truly dynamic, friendly and professional band. It was a wonderful and memorable day!”Mike & Melissa
“Our first dance was to ‘Favourite Girl’ by King Creosote. Calm Doon learned the song for us and played it live, which was a dream come true. It meant so much to us.
They played a rendition of Irish drinking songs which we requested for all the Irish contingent at the wedding – it tore up the dance floor. Whether you knew the words or not, everyone went crazy and the dancefloor was the best place to be in the whole wide world, surrounded by our closest friends and family.”Kate & Jonny
