Hoots Man!

Reelback @Hoots

Last weekend we ticked off a “bucket list” venue for the band with a trip to Inverness to play at Hootananny’s.

There was too much fun had by the everyone to Blog properly but our top 3 phrases said by the band on the trip are:

“Belgium TV?……And you’re here to film us? Aye ok then crack on hen”

“Did you have the curried goat, I did n it was smashing”

“Dinnie call her Mrs, she’s got a name I just cannie remember it the now”

Our top tip from the weekend is though, if you book a hotel room be sure to get a confirmation email.

Thanks to all who travelled to Ceilidh with us and all who made it such a great night.

We had a great time and we are sure to be back soon.

Repeat 1-2 with the opposite feet!

Sorry for the lack of updates we have all just been so busy!

We hope you all had as much fun at Celtic Connections as we did. Best year ever we think.

In the last few months we have played weddings, charity nights and even have managed (if we blow our own bagpipes here) to top the internet charts. We currently sit at the top of the Celtic charts in the UK over on  http://www.reverbnation.com/reelback 

We’ve also had some very kind words from our clients, we thought we’d share our latest feedback “My sincere thanks to all the band, Gillian and Kelly, was a brilliant night, really good fun, hope u can do it again next year, was awesome 🙂 Thanks Sue”

In all this we still found some time for a selfie or two!

This weekend we began recording.

It will be a few months before we have our CD completed, but we do hope to share a few tunes in the coming weeks. We have a few of our own tunes to record and are also adding in  some of our favourite and slightly more traditional tunes.

Thanks & loves as always x

Whiskey before breakfast!

Dancers

Its been a busy few months here at Reelback towers, the diary for 2015 is filling up nicely.

We are recording some tracks in November for our own release, much of the material has been written by Ronnie but our favorite tune at the moment is “Karolina’s Reel” no prizes for guessing who wrote that one!

Huge thanks go to Joyce Martin for a fab photo session, we have lots of pics to choose from and will share some over the next few weeks! Give Joyce a “like” here

Finally, most of our bookings this side of 2014 are private functions BUT we will have news of a special ceilidh coming soon!

Thanks as always.
