A hoedown with attitude for the 21st-century with swinging tunes and called dances in an awesome cowboy ceilidh - meet The Saloon Band!

Since 2008, the band have been playing everywhere from festivals to weddings to parties to celebrations of all kinds, bringing strangers and friends together to laugh and dance. In May 2023 they played to a packed house in the fantastic WoW Barn as part of the Leeds 2023 festival. The festival director said: "It was utterly splendid. Loved it!".

The Saloon Band play American and Irish dance tunes, with everything from a bit of Johnny Cash to Irish jigs, to rip it up hillbilly fiddle tunes with some really accessible dances from our excellent caller. Their only rule is: don't worry if you get it wrong! The band want their audiences to have as much as they are!

With a standard 5-piece line-up of fiddle, accordion, vocals/banjo, bass and drums, their music is driven by rhythm and melody, and since the band have played together for many years, you can count on them for excellent musicianship, and a great time!

Huge thanks for the part you all played in making Saturday night a brilliant relaxed atmosphere - choosing exactly the right combination of dances for the mix of audience and generally beaming high energy good humour from the stage and on the floor.

You really did make our party go with a bang. Everyone loved you and your callers were amazing at getting everyone up dancing (even my mother in law who vowed she wasn't going to dance!!!). We both had a great night and everyone is raving about it

I can thoroughly recommend the band for your celebrations. We booked them for my 50th and then again for my 60th birthday and had such a fun and memorable evening. Dancing with family and friends aged 5 - 88. They were really great to work with - easy going and helpful in every aspect.


Event: Corporate
Location: North Yorkshire

Huge thank you for making our annual awards and staff party one of the best ones yet! Our event was for 180 guests with a huge mix of ages, so finding something that would suit and make everyone feel included was quite the challenge. Needless to say, after a little warm up song, everyone wanted a piece of the action. We were dancing all night long! It was brilliant fun and exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you so much! We will 100% be booking the band again

What a fabulous night at my partner’s 60th, thanks to The Saloon Band. A lively bunch of people - friendly, fun and sooo patient with all of us. They made the dances easy to understand and such fun to do. Very accommodating with all our needs. I would have them again and again. Can’t thank them enough for making our night so special.
