What do we do?
Our usual package includes a selection of dances to suit your party, most often a mix of square and line dances for anyone who wants to join in, with Country songs and traditional American music to accompany and entertain between the called dances. We can vary this to suit you, so just ask for exactly what you want and we'll do our best to provide it!
2017 "to our caller Liz
"The Compton Square Dance has been a village institution for over 50years and a great event for family and firends to get together and have fun, whilst raising funds for local charities. With the introduction of Liz three years' ago, the Square Dance is enjoying a new lease of life, with more people than ever dancing to Liz's infectious encouragement and dynamic calling, accompanied by the highly accomplished band Montana Rain. We hope to book Liz and Montana Rain again for 2018. Jo Giffen, Chairman, Compton Recreation Ground Committee."
2016 "Dear Pete
"A great success. It was our first effort to do a Country and Western Evening, and the music was much appreciated. A big thank you to you and the band for helping 4th June to be a success. Best wishes and again, many thanks to you and the band, from Carolyn and the Kent team."
2016 "Hi Pete
Just a quick note to thank you for such a great night on Saturday. Loads of people have been shouting your praises to me and wondering how I got so lucky, finding you. Seeing the barn, all quiet and back to normal, seems very weird.
Anyway, can't wait for my 60th! All the best,"
2015 "Hi Pete
We all had a great evening thanks to you guys. We have had a lot of feedback on how much fun the whole evening was. It’s my 40th in five years….Best wishes to you all"
2015 "Many thanks Pete...
You all really made the evening. Everyone just loved you all...thank you and hope to see you again."
2015 to our caller Liz
"What a wonderful evening! I’m sorry not to have written before now, but this is my first opportunity for saying a big thank you to you and the band for an excellent evening’s entertainment last Saturday. Everyone, who has passed comment to me, said what a vast improvement Montana Rain was compared with our previous band, and from your results of getting people up and moving, I can only endorse that commendation!
.....I look forward to contacting you early in 2016 to book you for next year’s Square Dance. With very best regards"
