Barn dance bands, Hoedown bands Manchester UK

Devil's Fire barn dance band have been together since 1994. They have a unique sound that they have made their own. They play an exciting mixture of Celtic, Country, Cajun and rock rhythms that are perfect for barn dances. They play mainly for wedding receptions, corporate events, birthday parties and all other types of events where barn dance bands or hoedown bands are required.

Devil's Fire Band are based in the North West of the UK, mainly performing in Lancashire, Cheshire, Staffordshire, North Wales and the West Midlands.

Reforming from their previously successful group, "Hole in the Wall", Devil's Fire have become a very popular and successful group on the UK barn dance and hoedown scene.

Devil's Fire have, beyond doubt, an exciting and unique Celtic Rock sound, fused with more than a little Cajun and Zydeco feel. So, whether you are planning a barn dance, hoe down, corporate themed event or wedding reception, then Devil's Fire barn dance band is the group for you.

They come complete with Caller and their own sound equipment. They play recorded music in the interval from an MP3 through their P.A. system - so there is never a time without music throughout the whole evening.

History of the band

Previous to starting up Devil's Fire, all the band members had been in various bands scattered around the North West, - from bands as diverse as traditional folk right through to country and rock and roll.

The original line-up was Dave Hayes on mandolin, Terry Bailey on guitar and 5 string banjo and Steve Andrews on bass. A matter of a few months later we were joined by Derek Eccles on drums. This line-up continued until 2005 when Steve left to be replaced by Dave Smith (Daz) on bass. Shortly afterwards, Terry went off to form his own folk band and was replaced by Martin Conway on guitar. It was at this stage that the band started getting a little rockier and doing more classic rock and roll numbers between the dances and at the end of the evening.

Back in 2008, Martin left to be replaced with Greg Slater on guitar and in 2016 Daz was replaced by Lee Osborne, giving us our present line-up of Dave Hayes, Derek Eccles, Lee Osborne and Greg Slater. Daz also occasionally deputises if a musician is unavailable as he plays both guitar and bass.
