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...

 

Ross provided the evening disco for our wedding on Saturday and what an extremely pleasant and professional man you are! Nothing was an issue to you at all and your service was second to none! You exceeded every expectation we had and we would like to thank you so so much for helping to make our day so amazing and for taking some perfect photos that we will treasure forever.

Bethany & Greg Sykes

Ross was the piper and DJ for our wedding. He did an amazing job for both. The piping was absolutely beautiful and he even braved the cold and high winds to come up into the hills so we could get pictures and footage for our wedding film. Everyone enjoyed the nights music and as an extra he even captured some awesome pictures of everyone dancing. We would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Ross!

Ross was the DJ at our Wedding on the 22nd of June - he was brilliant. He made sure he got people dancing, as well as adding some Ceilidh dances in here and there! The online requests system is a great idea and he made sure he took them all on board and kept us organised too! I would highly recommend him! Thanks again Ross 

Becky & Martin Shankland

Ross arranged a virtual ceilidh for the Trophy d’Ecosse synchronized skating competition. The event couldn’t go ahead this year but we wanted our post competition party to still happen. Ross arranged dance cards in advance so everyone could learn the dances and he led proceedings over zoom on the night. The best Saturday night we have all had in lockdown! Thank you Ross.

Anne-Marie Coxon

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.
