The band are based in the central belt of Scotland and will travel for events.
Named as a wee homage to the great Sir Jimmy Shand Snr, the Shimmy Grand Ceilidh Band was formed in 2011 with the intention of bringing the traditional ceilidh into the 21st Century.
Their musical style offers two very different approaches: a very traditional ceilidh sound and in complete contrast, unique arrangements of the traditional melodies complimented with grooves and quotes from contemporary pop music. The perfect fusion. They regularly change between both sounds just for the fun of it. As well as the well-known dances, they also offer more modern ceilidh dances for those that want to try something new.
"The band were fantastic. Really good fun and absolutely perfect for our event. Everyone has raved about it since. Would reccomend them to anyone.
