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).

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

Charmas’s Response:

Thank you very much, Tom. It was obvious from looking at Barbara how much she appreciated the celebration you put together for her. FYI, I'm not sure where you live, but if you're local - Aaron, Phil and I are hosting a "chantey sing" at Rosie McCann's this Thursday. 7:00 arrival (I'm sure the singing will be in full swing by 7:30.) It's an acapella singalong (not a show put on by our band), and all will be welcome to lead any chantey(s) they know, and if you don't know any you'll be able to join in anyway because the songs have choruses that are easy to learn on the fly. Great fun if you want to join us... Best Wishes, Elise

Thank you very much, Keir! Please make sure your aunt sends me the recording or printed lyrics to her poem about your mom, and I will follow through with seeing if it would make a good song for our band (even maybe with her singing it, who knows?) Best Wishes, Elise and Charmas
