The Amycrofters Band is led by Andrew on accordion. He is a very experienced dance musician. The band has been delighting Ceilidh and Barn dancers since 2002. Andrew is accompanied by his wife June, who plays keyboard and banjolele. She adds further rhythm, phrasing and variety to the sound of the accordion.
The couple often play as a duo. This makes them less expensive and more flexible than larger groups. With their lively foot tapping, varied sound, this is a popular option with organisers. If required the Amycrofters are fortunate to be able to call on the services of other talented instrumentalists, such as violinists, and mandolin, banjo and guitar players. They are then known as the Amycrofters Plus.
The band provides full PA equipment tailored to the needs of the event, however large or small. We provide our own stage lighting if necessary. Equipment is safety tested and the band has full public liability insurance. Stage setup and appearance are very smart. If requested in advance, Mickey Mouse and Dancing Jig Dolls can delight audiences, at no extra cost! Normally the band performs within a three hour time span. A caller will be provided for dancing, unless you wish to provide one yourselves. The band also performs for sing-a-long events and can provide back ground music for any occasion. A generator can be supplied to provide power for the band if required. We travel and play for events all over the country. If staying over, we use a motorhome, avoiding additional client expense.
