"Just a note to thank you for the fantastic job you did last Saturday. Everyone said how much they enjoyed themselves and how good the band was. Practically everyone got up to dance at some time during the evening, and that's no mean feat! It was great to look around and see our guests laughing and enjoying themselves. Thanks also to your caller for being so helpful and patient with the adults, and especially with the children. It meant that they were able to join in and enjoy themselves too. I can understand why Ken and Julie recommended The Molecatchers, and we will have no hesitation in recommending you too. Thanks again." (L & M, Bristol)











Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do I need a barn to have a barn dance?

No. You need a room large enough for the band, caller and dancers. A village hall, community centre, the back room of a pub or the O2 Arena would all be suitable venues.

Do I need to be able to dance to enjoy a barn dance?

No, the caller will guide everyone through the dances. If you can count and walk you can do a barn dance. Knowing left from right is an advantage, but not essential.

Do I need to provide a PA and caller?

No, we will bring a caller and a PA system. If you do wish to provide a PA and sound engineer, our PA spec is here: spec.
