Our 5-piece Celtic band (also available as a trio or 6-piece band) can rock your dance party, add elegance to your wedding reception, rekindle fond memories at your loved one's memorial service, or just inspire your friends to raise their pints and sing until they fall over smiling.
Charmas performs for private parties, modern dance clubs, festivals, traditional music concerts, pub and winery shows, weddings, memorial services, and charity events. The band's instrumentation includes lead and harmony vocals, fiddle, Celtic wooden flute, low whistle, pennywhistle, guitar, standup or electric bass, acoustic and electric guitar, kit drums and/or bodhran hand drum. Solo or with the band, Great Highland Bagpipes (or quieter Scottish "session" pipes) can be added to any band show (see Gigmaster listing for bagpiper Elise MacGregor Ferrell.), as well as a solo vocalist for special moments at weddings and memorial services.
Charmas' repertoire features well-loved Irish and Scottish ballads, traditional and modern comedy songs, sea chanteys, crowd-pleasing American cover songs, modern Celtic rock covers, original rock/pop/comedy songs, and mixed-style instrumental sets of our own design.
The band is reliable, professional, easy to reach by e-mail while planning your event, and usually books its gigs from 2-months up to 1-year in advance.
If you don't already see your favorite songs on our repertoire list, we are happy to take requests (please inquire for details).

We hired the Charmas for a corporate function and everything went to plan, the guests enjoyed the music and they had some great songs throughout their sets. Thanks again.

Thank you, Bekah, You are a great event coordinator. I hope we'll get to work with you again some time in the future, and I hope your guests will encourage lots of first-timers to fly over to Ireland and have the real experience. Best Wishes, Elise and Charmas

We had a birthday party at our home of about 60 people and this group made the party! All age groups attended -even my 22 year old sons (twins) thought they were awesome. Very special touch to this special event and were very easy to deal with. Follow up and talent with their music is why I gave them a 5!

Charmas’s Response:

Thank you very much, Deanna. We enjoyed all of you, and your goofy songs! At the end, we each tried one of those chocolate covered strawberries, and wow! It's a good thing we didn't know about them sooner ;) Best Wishes from both of us, Elise and Mike

The Charmas were the highlight of this special birthday party. Their music, joy of playing and their willingness to have our guests join in, made my husband's 70th birthday party so much more memorable. They lay seized to our ears and captured our hearts. We hope to have them back. Lauren Doherty, Fremont, CA

Charmas’s Response:

Thank you for your kind words, Lauren. You were a model hostess - not only exceptionally attentive to your guests (and to us!), but also able to remain completely relaxed while keeping your party right on schedule. Bob is a most lucky husband, and we'll be happy to come play for you again any time. Now, what I want to know is...when the suitor next door proposed, did she say yes?? Best Wishes, Elise
