Yeehaaa! This is an All American Barn Dance and Hoedown Band that gets you up and dancing licketysplit fast. We love hay bails, cowboy hats and rickety ol' barns even if we bring our high tech PA system to make sure you can hear us above all your laughin' soutin' and stomping feet.
Great for your birthday party corporate event and even your wedding if you want a wild evening.
The Licketysplit American Barn Dance Band plays in a number of line-ups; Three Piece Band (typically fiddle, guitar, bass/caller), Four Piece Band (typically 2 fiddles, guitar, bass/caller). We also play as an instrumental band playing music to listen to , which is the same line-ups as above, but the bass player just plays bass and doesn’t call as well. We do not do vocals.
We are a highly experienced 8 in 1 band having played for over 800 fun Barn Dances & Ceilidhs throughout the ‘3 Counties’ (Worcestershire, Herefordshire & Gloucestershire) and the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, North Somerset and South and Central Wales.
Licketysplit are a traditional Yee Haa American Barn Dance Band, playing music for a traditional American Barn Dance & Hoedown that you will be familiar with, like 'Cumin Round the Mounti' for square dances. But the there will be a range of circle dances and set dances to American music as well. For the music between, to listen to while you get your breath back, you'll hear music ranging from the French influenced fast moving Cajun, to competition tunes like 'Dun Gone'. So get your hay bails ready for an American Hoedown Barn Dance!
We play in the Three Counties and their neighbours. Here is some information about venues and towns we have played at:
