Crichton GolF Club Burns Supper Piper & DJ

We were delighted to be a part of Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary’s Critical Care Unit Burns Supper on Saturday 1st February 2020 at the Crichton Golf Club. The CCU organised this event to raise money to support the amazing work of the Brain Tumour Charity – such a fantastic cause!

We started the night on the pipes, playing as guests arrived and piping in the Top Table. It was then over to Chairman Chris Lyon for the introductions and Selkirk Grace.

Some hae meat and canna eat,
   And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
   Sae let the Lord be thankit.

It was then onto the main event – piping in the haggis! Of course it had to be the traditional Burns tune, A Man’s A Man For A’ That. After a fantastic meal by the Crichton Golf Club, we moved onto some great entertainment. Catherine Jardine kicked things off with a beautiful version of My Love is Like a Red Red Rose and then it was Dewi Williams’ brilliant immortal memory. We had David Christie toasting the lassies and Laura White with the reply to the laddies – both were excellent! We then finished off the formal part of the evening with Anne-Marie Cossar’s exceptional version of Gerry Cinnamon’s Belter – she had rewritten the lyrics to “CCU Belters” to recognise the amazing work of the staff at the Critical Care Unit, a really lovely idea!

After the formal part of the evening, we cleared the tables and made room for dancing! Sticking with the Scottish tradition, we got everyone up for a couple of ceilidh dances before moving onto the disco. We had lots of requests with everything from Usher’s Yeah to Jackie Wilson’s (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher & Higher.

Overall it was a fantastic night which raised an amazing total of £1100.00 for the Brain Tumour Charity. We were so pleased to be a part of the event and support this brilliant cause.

Here’s what organiser Anne-Marie Cossar had to say about us:

Ross was exceptional at our Critical Care Unit Burns Supper. Playing the pipes numerous times throughout the evening (beautifully) and also keeping guests dancing all night with his fab disco. We had a blast! Everyone is raving on about how great a night they had. Thanks again x 🎉😊

What Customers Said...

 

We had a fantastic night at the Easterbrook hall for our son's Wedding. In no small part this was due to Ross's professionalism and his willingness to work with us in planning the night. We would absolutely recommend Ross and warmly extend to him our thanks.

Excellent Service From The Day We Booked. FIRST CLASS** top DJ. Excellent service from the day we booked Ross. I was emailing him on a regular basis and was always very prompt at responding. Our guests were able to choose their own songs and the evening playlist was fantastic, the floor was never empty. One thing I do remember about Ross was his lovely manner and his big smile. Thank you for making our evening perfect - get the 28th October 2042 in the diary!

Diane & Ian Anderson

We asked Ross to be a piper through the day and DJ at night for our big day on 13th of July. He went above and beyond all of our expectations and made life so easy for us. He couldn’t do enough for us to make sure our day was perfect, even when it came to last minute changes and decisions he was able to help us out. His online system for choosing songs was so easy to use and made sure all the songs we wanted to be played were so. Can’t thank him enough for everything he did and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for this service at an event!

David & Rowan Thomson

Hi Ross, Thanks for your message and thank you so much for being part of our big day! You did a fantastic job. Thank you for being so flexible with the schedule and for making our evening such an enjoyable one. I have a feeling that the Canadian side, in particular, will be talking about the ceilidh for a long time. I've had a quick look through the photos and they look great. I will most definitely be recommending your services to anyone who's looking for entertainment. Thanks again and all the best.

Ross played at our wedding at Springkell and was absolutely fantastic. Even before our wedding, he seamlessly coordinated our schedule, had an easy-to-use system, and much appreciated payment process. On our wedding day, he was friendly, and even got our 35-person wedding dancing for hours! We had some last minute schedule changes that he rolled with easily, making adjustments and continuing to play a great mix of music all night, from wedding classics to modern hits that all ages enjoyed. Every song that we requested was played and he interspersed our requests seamlessly. The dance floor was hopping all night. The lighting, especially the stars, were also a huge hit! Thank you Ross for making this American couples' wedding day perfect.
