Longden Village Hall Birthday Party
Thank you so much for Saturday night. We all had a really wonderful time and all my guests said how much they enjoyed the band! Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved. Thank you for your patience with us too - I know it took us a while to work out some of the dances! 
Thanks again,

Dear Dave, Anne and all the Odd Socks
Thank you once again for Saturday's Ceilidh.  The evening was all we'd
hoped it would be, with a lovely mix of all ages, all having a wonderful
time together.
We hope to do a repeat of the event at some point, so will be in touch
as we'd love to book the Odd Socks again.
With thanks and very best wishes,
Booking Enquiry Burns Night 2023
Dear David
You may recall that your wonderful band played at our last Burns Night event which we held at the Lion Hotel – I can’t believe it was 2020!!
Well- this year we are holding it at The Prince Rupert Hotel on Friday 27th January and are very much hoping that you are free to attend and play for us again.
Please can you advise as soon as possible and also of your costs.
I hope you are all keeping well and look forward to hearing from you soon.
Kind regards
Our first wedding at Pim Hill Barns 2022 after a 2 year layoff 
Hi Dave 
Hope you have had a wonderful week. I would have emailed sooner but we had a deal to switch off as much as possible this week! 
Just wanted to email to say a huge thank you for last weekend. You and the band were incredible and got people up dancing that Arran and I were sure we would never see dancing! We've had so many comments that the Celiedh was their favourite part. 
Thank you for being part of making our day so special. 
Many Thanks

Nightline  Associaton

Hi David,
Just to echo the comments above, the Ceilidh went down as a real highlight of the conference and is certainly one of the best I have been to in a long time. Please pass my thanks on to the group for their talent and good humour - it was a real pleasure to have you with us for the evening!
Look forward to working with you again in the future.
All the best,

 Birthday Party
Hi Dave
Thank you so much for a great evening at Welsh Frankton village hall. Even on the extremely hot evening that it was you got people up to dance and we all had a great time. Here is what a friend said to me "The band were great too.  They looked like they have been together for years and really knew how to work together and work the crowd.”  I agree completely, you were all such lovely people, the music was rousing and your choices of dances were excellent. Of course Ann was a wonderful caller and made it all easy! Several people in our party were complete beginners and they say that they would love to do it all again they had so much fun.
Thanks once again, would definitely recommend you. Hope to see you soon, please keep me informed of any public events you have.
Best wishes

Thank you all for leading such a fantastic party! It was exactly what we wanted for the night before our wedding, and really set the tone for the whole weekend. I know corralling a group of drunk people is not easy, but you did an excellent job.

Dear Dave, Many thanks for fitting in so brilliantly with the evening's unpredictable course. A succession of Facebook comments records how much you were appreciated, and a distant neighbour voiced his appreciation over my gate this evening. Many thanks to your wife for her particular, indispensable skills and superhuman patience. Regards, Adrian

Blymhill Village Hall                                                          80th Birthday party

" we booked Odd Socks for my Dads 80th birthday as we wanted an evening where all could join in with the dancing but also be able to chat without being drowned out by the volume of the music.  Odd Socks were everything we wished for. They were punctual and professional throughout the evening. Ann was a very patient 'caller' and explained the dance moves and talked us through them and the standard of music played by the band was wonderful. Very talented musicians. A thoroughly enjoyable night. If you want an evening of excellent music and dance to celebrate your event then Odd Socks are definateley the band for you. "

Linden House Tettenhall                                               Retirement Party

The evening was fantastic. Many thanks to the 4 of you. You kept us going and entertained us. I personally am so grateful to you all. I could tell people enjoyed themselves, so thank you so much, and will see you around.
Sincere regards

Terrace Bar Hawkstone Park Hotel  2015            Charlton Medical Centre

Just a short message to thank you very much for a superb night on Saturday.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Ceilidh dancing and  we all had some very sore feet the next day.  The evening seemed to go so very fast and everyone says that they would have loved to have carried on longer.  I am not sure where they had all their energy from.  Again thank you for helping us to make a very memorable evening. 

 Kind regards


Oswestry School Parents Association Burns Night 2015

HI Dave 

I hope you got home OK last night. Thank you so much for playing so well at our Burns Night Ball last night! I think everyone had a brilliant night out! It was great to have so many people out on the dance floor. I especially liked the penultimate dance when you invited all the men to shout “Oi!”. They seemed to revel in it, like New Zealand rugby players doing a Haka! I saw some people picking up your card so I hope this brings you more gigs. Please pass my thanks on to the rest of your band. 



Birthday Party Hadley Telford

Thank you very much for making my 50th birthday one to remember.  All my friends commented on how good the entertainment was and there wasn't a moment when the dance floor was empty.  Thank you also for your quick responses to any correspondence, going out of your way to fit in with my requirements for the night to make it a truly unforgettable night.  

Thank you 


The Albright Hussey Hotel 

Hi Dave,

I just wanted to send you a message to thank-you and the rest of the Odd Socks band for being so wonderful on our wedding day! All our guests loved your music! It did however highlight how unfit the majority of us were! Had an amazing time and can't thank you all enough!


Longmynd Hotel New Years Eve 2013

Dear Dave, Ann, Rupert & Mike On behalf of HF Holidays' guests I would like to thank you for a splendid New Year's Eve ceilidh. Guests were universally complimentary about the band's playing, the choice of dances and Ann's very clear calling. There will be a similar event at the end of 2014 and when I meet with a senior manager of the company later this month, I will ask if we can book the band for 31 December

 My very best wishes Colin 

Bobbington Village Hall.

Hi Dave and the Band! Just a quick thank you for a fabulous night on the 29th June. I had some really positive feedback from my guests, everyone had a great time, they are now 'barn dance converts!' I enjoyed every single minute, you guys provided excellent entertainment, fabulous music and outstanding patience as most of us had no idea what we were doing! I loved the way Rupert wandered around the room playing his fiddle inbetween the dancers, it was just fab! I couldn't have wished for a better 40th birthday party - my legs ached for 2 days but I wasn't prepared to miss a dance! Best wishes to you all and thanks once again.

Acton Scott Village Hall - 18th  Birthday Party

Just a little note to thank you all so much for the most brilliant evening on Saturday – everyone had a great time! As we said at the end of the ceilidh, it really helps when everyone gets into the swing and so much of that was down to clear, patient calling and fantastic, infectious music – just wonderful!   I’ve attached an action shot – it’s a bit blurred because they were all so involved, but I think it captures the essence of a cracking celebration.

Take care, and we hope to see you again.


Fiona’s Wedding Arddleen

Hi Dave, I just wanted to send a big 'thank you' from all my family. We had a great time on Saturday and I thought you coped very well with a sometimes difficult audience!!

Shifnal Golf Club

Hi Dave Hope you are all well ? Just wanted to thank you very much for a lovely evening. Everyone thought you were fantastic and I have given your number to several people. Sorry we had to cut the evening short but due to weather conditions and the fact that most people had to travel a distance it was thought sensible and I did not think it fair to keep you all until 12pm it would have been a very late night for all of you. Thank you once again and hope we can meet again I thoroughly enjoyed you all Kind regards
