Welcome to the Geckoes website
Geckoes are in the front rank of the bands on the
English Ceilidh scene. Evolving out of the country dances of the British
Isles, Europe and America, this style of dancing is typified by its
exuberance and Geckoes' music has all the energy and style that it takes
to fill a floor with hundreds of delighted - if somewhat sweaty -
Geckoes are a favourite attraction at dance clubs such as Haddenham and
Oxfolk, and have for many years been regular performers at major folk
festivals including Sidmouth, Towersey, Broadstairs, Chippenham, and Whitby.
Not only, but also...
Chameleons - the flexible dance band
If your booking requires a smaller, more flexible band than the full Geckoes
