The Whole Caboodle is a lively electric ceilidh (barn dance) band based in Worcester. The band of five talented and experienced musicians take delight in sharing their skills, enthusiasm, and passion for live music.


























Whether you have been to hundreds of ceilidhs, or are contemplating your very first, The Whole Caboodle is the band for you.


They play traditional and contemporary folk dance tunes, and call dances from all over Britain and beyond, carefully chosen for each audience.















The band also has a selection of classic pop hits from the sixties and seventies so that party goers can have a good old freestyle bop too.















A ceilidh (barn dance) is a fabulous way of getting all your guests, whatever their ages, onto their feet and mixing with each other. Everyone will have great fun, even those who are unable to dance will enjoy watching everyone else. People who have never been to a ceilidh before will find how easy it is to learn the steps, carefully explained by the caller.



How did we do?

60th Birthday party

18th April 2016

Thank you very much for performing at my party on Saturday. Everyone has said how much they enjoyed the dancing and what a wonderful band you are.  I think you did a fantastic job, there was just the right balance of ceilidh dances, bop, and songs. You made the dances fun, and switching partners got everyone to mix. I am really pleased I asked you to play for us, you are a very talented group.

Many many thanks, and I hope to dance with you again soon.

Best wishes



Wedding Anniversary

16th February 2016

Many thanks to you and all the members of the band for playing at our party on the 13th February. The music was fantastic, and the instructions from the caller excellent, even if some did find it difficult to know which was left and right.  We have had so many calls from friends complimenting us on your playing, that we are basking in your reflected glory.  We both had a memorable evening, to a great extent due to the music and the way you got everyone on their feet, it was everything we had hoped for.
Once again, thank you to everyone
Best wishes
Jim and Jane

Family party

31st August 2014

Many thanks for performing at our family celebration yesterday.
The guests seemed to enjoy the ceilidh. We certainly did. Some had never been to a ceilidh before so it was a new experience for them.
The requested song was a fabulous version and we were delighted with it. Thanks again, and maybe see you at our next big occasion whatever that may be, a big birthday or a wedding. Kind regards

Just a note to thank you and all the band for a fantastic evening last Saturday. We have just started to regain the use of our legs after so much dancing! So many people have come back to us saying what a terrific group The Whole Caboodle is and what a great night they had. All in all you made the night for us (again) and Dee and I are very grateful indeed. Please pass on our very best wishes and thanks to all the band and we hope to see you all again soon.
All the best
