Trophy d’Ecosse Virtual Ceilidh

We have DJ’d the Trophy d’Ecosse Ceilidh for the last 7 years and when the organisers asked us to help this year, we were determined to make it 8 in a row!

Obviously the event couldn’t go ahead at Easterbrook Hall as normal, so the whole event was moved online. We were so excited to be able to provide the ceilidh and disco for this fantastic event, even if it was a little different to what we are used to!

The Real Life Event

Trophy d’Ecosse is the UK’s largest synchronised skating competition and takes place in Dumfries every February. It attracts hundreds of skaters from across the world and one of the highlights is always the party at the end of the competition. We have had the pleasure of being involved since 2014 and it is something we look forward to every year.

Being a Scottish competition, ceilidh dancing is essential at the party. The skaters absolutely love it! It’s always great to see guests from all over the world getting involved in our Scottish traditions. Between the ceilidh dancing, disco music and flash mobs, the dance floor is packed all night!

The Move to Virtual

When the organisers came to us with the awesome idea to move to a virtual ceilidh, we couldn’t wait to get involved! After discussing the format of the event, we sorted out all the technical side of things so we could DJ directly to Zoom. The next challenge was how to teach the ceilidh dances over Zoom.

We put together a selection of Dance Cards that were sent out in advance of the event. These included the instructions of each dance, as well as links to the video and music. These Dance Cards, together with videos and calling on the night, ensured everyone could get involved in the dancing.

Party Time

The night itself was fantastic! We had a round 100 people on the Zoom call and everyone was so keen to party. We had people dancing in their livings rooms, kitchens and even their garages! Some people even went to the effort of getting their own disco lights.

We were delighted to receive this great feedback from the organisers:

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!

What Customers Said...

 

We would highly recommend Ross to DJ for your wedding! We had the best night at our wedding!

He got everyone up on the dance floor and it was the perfect mix of Scottish Ceilidh music, new music and our guests song requests. We also had Ross MC our wedding and he ensured everything went smoothly! The online portal is incredible! So easy to use and ensures everything you want is on there!

Thank you Ross!

Amy & Josh Willson

Ross did the Piping and the DJ for mine and my husband's Wedding and I couldn't fault one thing. Definitely recommend him to anyone. 10 out of 10 from us!

Sarah & Struan McQuade

Thank you very much for doing our entertainment on Friday night. Everybody enjoyed themselves and said they had a great night - you had the dance floor bouncing. We shall certainly be recommending you. Thanks again.

Alex & Jacqui Curran

Amazing set up and great songs played by Ross all night and he ensured the dance floor was never empty. Great dialogue throughout our booking with Ross and his website is great once you get the link to pick your songs for the big day. Ross ensured the party flowed well with a great mix of songs to fit all genres. Would highly recommend Ross if you are needing a dj for any occasion especially a wedding.

Kenny & Leanna Cowie

Myself and my partner Ryan can’t thank Ross enough for being part of our special day.

He was our piper for guests arriving, our ceremony and during our photos. He did an absolutely amazing job and the sound of the pipes was absolutely incredible a special part of our day that we will always remember.

Ross then was our DJ at night after our meal and he accommodated all our song requests to the best of his abilities and also has a do not play section for any songs that may be hard to hear on your special day which I think is a fantastic feature!

Ross was in constant contact which put us at ease and was absolutely incredible with moving our date following the pandemic postponing our original 2020 date and did this without taking additional cost or without question.

Everyone had a fantastic night and Ross also took some lovely photos of our guests and ourselves dancing at night which I thought was a lovely last touch.

If you are considering Ross at all we would highly recommend he is both an incredible piper and DJ, very reasonably priced for his time and what he brings to your day and just an all round lovely guy!

Thanks again Ross ?
