About Us






Don't take our word for it - hear what the audience and the people that book us say!!

From a dance for a doctor's surgery on 19th October 2019:

"Please pass on our thanks to the band, it was a really brilliant evening and one of the best.  Everyone had a fantastic time.

From a dance for Sudbury Twinning association (with guests from France) on May 5th 2019:

"Thank you to you all for a fun evening in Sudbury on Sunday. The music and dancing was really appreciated and you helped to create a light hearted and memorable atmosphere. Thank you to Mr Garland for his patience in the calling and explaining of the dances and for judging the capabilities of our guests. We loved the singing too. We will keep your contact details and hope that we will see you again."

From our second annual charity dance on 7th November 2014:

"Dear Mike, Mick, Adam, David and Roger - in other words - Inertia Reel,

I am writing to thank you all so much for giving (literally!) your wonderful music to us on Friday evening. It was a true gift of your time and your talent, enjoyed so much by everyone, and the amount you donated to our branch was just amazing."

From a 25th Anniversary dance on the 21st June 2014:

"Please can you pass on our thanks to all the band, we had a great night and everyone that came thoroughly enjoyed themselves, I don't think they'll have any problems with getting enough people to turn up at the Bucklesham yearly barn dance in the future. I hope the band enjoyed themselves and we look forward to seeing them all again soon."

From a 40th Birthday dance on the 9th May 2014:

"Thank you and please thank the band members from us both. They played brilliantly and we all really enjoyed the dances. Everyone enjoyed themselves."

From a 25th Anniversary dance on the 30th November 2013:

"Thank you sooo much to the band.

As said on the night we might have been one of their smallest audiences in some time but we made up for it in enthusiasm.

We have had so many positive comments so many thanks to the band and caller. Everyone felt they could join in, not be embarrassed by going wrong and the instructions were great to follow anyhow. Fabulous music.

If I can ever act as a reference for enquiries for future events Iíd be very happy to do so.

Not sure the band will still be around in 25 yearsí time (not sure I can hack organising another one until then) but Iíll certainly check, just in case. We might all need our zimmer frames by then mind!

Thank you, thank you once again."

From a dance at Framlingham College on January 26th 2013:

"Please could you pass on our thanks to all the band members of Inertia Reel for a fantastic evening of entertainment on Saturday. We have had a lot of comments about how good the band were and how well they led us through the dances. I know that there were quite a few people there on the night who had never been to a Ceilidh before and had initially needed some persuading to attend - hopefully this is no longer the case and they are converts!

Many thanks once again"


From a 60th Birthday dance on 6th October 2012:-

"Please would you tell everyone in the band how much we enjoyed their music on Saturday evening - they were truly excellent, and got us all up and dancing. Many people asked for your details which I was very pleased to give them. They really made my event special and I look forward to hearing them again soon."

From a dance for Tunstall Village on Sept 3rd 2011:-

"Please pass on our thanks to the band for a lovely evening on Saturday in Tunstall. As you know, we were apprehensive about low numbers. In the end there were about 40 there and they had a wonderful time according to the feedback. The band got it just right, singing some numbers and getting us to dance to others. Several people there said it was the best live band they had heard. Thanks to all, and if we can get a few more interested, we will be in touch next year- it should be easier now as the ones who came should pass it on!"

From a wedding we did in Sept. 2010:-

"We absolutely loved the Band and had so much fun taking part in the country dancing! We have had so many comments about what a laugh the dancing was & we feel sure it has made our wedding memorable for many people, including ourselves of course! It really was the highlight of our day so thankyou for sharing your talent with us."

From a charity event we did on the 1st June 2010 for the Samaritans:-

" What a superb night you gave us.  The music so refreshing, and varied.  I think next year it will be even more popular.  Everything was just wonderful. Thank you."

"Hello Cynthia, What a fantastic Band you provided, great music and thoroughly enjoyed.  Please pass on my thanks to all."

"Inertia Reel THANK YOU so much for last night's ho down. It was fabulous, you did a fantastic job.  Everything was so well done and organised and everyone had a great time. The dancing and music were all wonderful."

From and combined 60th Birthday and retirement dance on the 22nd May 2010:-

"A belated huge Thank You for a wonderful evening on 22nd May. We have had so many thanks from our guests that mentioned how much they enjoyed the music and dancing and the enormous part played by the band in making this such a happy celebration. Bless you all."

From a Harvest Barn Dance in Bury:-

"Many thanks for the enjoyable time we had with the band on 27th."
