High energy funk disco and original music

The Hoolie band are a seven-piece band fusing disco & funk with folk music.The lineup includes lead vocals, electric bass, rhythm guitar, drums, keys, fiddle & accordion  and backing vocals. Perfect for festivals, parties, weddings and for people who love to dance!

We also play for ceilidh dances. A disco ceilidh is much like a regular ceilidh set to the hoolie bands unique sound. We teach you everything you need to know to join in with the dancing on the night. Expect to hear our take on some classic disco tunes from greats like Nile Rogers, Michael Jackson & The Bee Gees, plus tunes from our latest EP.

We play parties, weddings, festivals and venues across the UK and we often think about going further afield!

"This is the best night out I've had for absolutely ages."

"Your mix of ceilidh disco and funk is awesome"

Saturday was amazing! What a brilliant invention, absolutely fantastic. I loved it. I've rarely seen so many people get involved and have a ball. You and the band were all excellent - huge kudos to you.

It was an absolute joy to be (and to dance) at your gig at the O2 on Saturday. For all those people who were clearly having a fab time too, here's a quick reminder of the Hoolie Band page whose 'Like' button one can press -- alas, facebook doesn't provide a 'Love' button!

"You guys were absolutely brilliant last night! I haven’t danced for 2 hours straight in YEARS, thank you so much for such a happy and fun night out! How wonderful also to see people aged between 8 and 70 having a great time together."

The atmosphere was brilliant, with everyone getting up to dance. We loved the mixture of folk and disco music, and got loads of compliments about our choice of band.

Just wanted to thank you all for an absolutely amazing night last night, you guy's rock! You made our event even more special than we ever dreamed.

Last night was amazing - and the dancing was great - at times i think I was making it up!

You and the band were absolutely amazing and so many of our guests came up to us afterwards and said they enjoyed it so much and it was an amazing and a really fun surprise to them. We were actually both quite surprised to see so many on the dance floor (also people who usually NEVER dance!)

Thanks so much for a FANTASTIC night on Friday....it has gone down in history as one of the best nights EVER. Everyone had such a brilliant time, and loved you and your music. Thanks so much for everything.

I just wanted to write you a quick email to say how fantastic the Hoolie Band were on Sunday night at our wedding. Please can you pass on to the band our HUGE thanks and congratulations on such a brilliant gig. All the guests without fail have said how amazing you all were. My particular highlight of the night was seeing an entire room of guests grooving in sync to Stayin' Alive. The fusion of funk and ceilidh is such a great concept and it was absolute pleasure to have you all there sharing our day with us...Lots of love and huge appreciation!
