21st Birthday Barn Dance near Hale, Cheshire

Here is some feedback from the birthday girl herself and her mum:

Feedback from Mum (who booked the band): 
Hi Fran
We had a great evening thank you and the band were great. The whole evening worked out perfectly and the barn dancing was a big hit with everyone. I think I saw almost everyone up dancing at some point which says it all. The "youngsters" most of whom had never been to a barn dance loved it and the whole party was a big hit. Kirsten had a ball and was delighted that her 21st was an occasion everyone will be talking about for a long time. Please thank all the band for me. They were so flexible on the night and happy to meet all our requests. Thanks again for all your help and making it all so easy.

Birthday girl's feedback:
Hi Fran,
I just wanted to personally email you to let you know how fantastic the band were on Saturday. They were warm, entertaining and the highlight of my night. It was a truly fantastic occasion and their presence ensured it was a night I will remember for a long time. Thanks again for all your help and please pass on my gratitude to the band. Many thanks, Kirsten.

Many thanks from the band for such a lovely evening and the glowing feedback.

July Barn Dances - the story so far

It's been an interesting month for Devil's Fire. We have played in a barn in Glossop, a garden party in Leeds, an RAF base in Yorkshire in the officers mess, and last night we played at Buile Hill School.

The garden party in Leeds was a corporate event to celebrate the 4th of July. A barbecue, drinks a plenty and all outside in the lovely sunshine. The RAF base was RAF Leeming for their summer ball. We provided the barn dance bit. We were looked after like royalty and we had a great night. Buile Hill school was a warm evening, but all the doors were open and a cool breeze was blowing in. The dancers were brilliant and a delicious barbecue was provided.

We still have two birthday parties to play this month. One in Hale and the other in Liverpool.

A barn somewhere in Glossop - a barn dance story

Devil's Fire played in a barn in Glossop for a birthday party on saturday 29th June 2013. The band were undercover in the barn, but the dancers were half inside the barn and half outside. The weather was also decidedly "iffy" with intermittent drizzle. Did this dampen spirits? - you bet it didn't!!

Here's what our host said about the evening:

" Just like to say the band was excellent and everyone really enjoyed it, the weather never dampened anyones spirits. I would definitely recommend the band to anyone else wanting a hoe down."
