$350 - $2000 per event
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).

Great...sorry guys couldn't say Thanks earlier.... it was amazing. I contacted charms just a few days before my husbands birthday . They learned my husband's favorite songs and were awesome. It was the highlight of the party and will remember it forever. Thanks for your efforts and making our evening memorable.

Charmas’s Response:

Many thanks, Kanupriya. You were a lovely hostess in your beautiful dress, and your husband's disbelieving expression when we appeared at the door showed that you have mastered the art of surprise! We're looking forward to seeing you again next year. Best Wishes, Charmas

My church booked Charmas for an Irish Sing-Along evening. We found them to be absolutely professional, yet flexible enough to let our own signers come up and sing on the mics. A superb band with a great sound, very easy to work with. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Charmas’s Response:

Thank you very much, Tom. Our success was made easier by you knowing exactly what your singers wanted to hear, and also by you giving us your list of requests nearly two months in advance. We hope your enthusiasm for singing sea chanteys will inspire you to visit the Balaclutha and Bay Area Irish song sessions... Best Wishes, Elise MacGregor Ferrell and Charmas

They were great! Could not have been more pleased. They were very flexible and accommodating with our activities during the party. They were able to engage with everyone and their positive energy was felt throughout the time with us. Lots of positive feedback from all of our partygoers (128!) and would use them again without hesitation. Thank you !

Charmas’s Response:

Thank you, Sheila! Charmas had a great time with all your people. And I must say, if a third of that many enthusiastic guests come to my 90th birthday party (and I can still sing for them, to boot), I will feel as lucky as you and your "birthday boy" must be feeling.
