Life of Reilly do describe themselves as more of a concert than a ceilidh band but have been described as electric and providing music for a good bop. In reality they do play as a nicely loose and pleasantly laid back Rock Ceilidh band. O.K. in one or two dances loose can mean not quite together, but mostly meaning relaxed and giving lots of spaces to dance in....
