    The PTA organised a really good Ceilidh last term. I'll see if I can find out the details of who they used.

    Hi we're the Greycatz, a Leeds based Ceilidh Band, and would be willing to do a Ceilidh for you for such a cause for free, providing it doesn't clash with any of our regular gigs.

    Here's a taster of a few songs from our Album and some pictures:

    If you're interested, get in touch.

    THANK YOU for your kind offer. Would love to have your band (and caller) on the 26 November 2011 from 7.30pm at Calverley Conservative Club

    Need to emphasise Creative Calverley is non political!! We are using a good venue space in Calverley.

    We are raising money for Hope for Tomorrow (which is a national charity) and in particular a Yorkshire based mobile chemotherapy unit.

    Even if you are unable to come...many thanks for your very kind offer. It has made my day that someone has been so generous and thoughtful.

    We are all free on 26th of Nov, so we are happy to play, including our caller (he likes to be called 'the dancemaster')!
    I presume it is open to the public, so if you would send us a poster, we will pass it around to our mailing list. If you don't have a poster, I can send you one that you can adapt for this gig.

    Maybe you could advertise your band and forthcoming events.

    I don't know if it's allowed on this forum - I just came across your post by accident. I'm a professional guitar teacher and guitar maker, the band is something of a hobby really. I'm happy to do dances if it's a good cause, so we'll see. We've been playing a together for 23 years, and working with this caller for about 10 years, so we do a few a year. Normally we just do it for expences, but this is a good cause, rather than for profit, so we'll do it for free.
    You should be able to send across the poster now.

    The font we use for our name is called 'sexysara' cos we're a bit gothic in our dress sense, and would like our name on the poster of couse, in big letters. (my spell checker seems to have stopped working - sorry)

    Advertising your band in the classifieds or entertainment sections is fine.....bumping your post count up the way you did to get 5 posts is however is not:nono::nono:

    They can count me as number 3 count. I think it's really generous of them to offer their services for free for such a good cause. I stumbled on this by accident. Hopefully at least another 2 people will too before Nov. Good luck for the event.
