About


ReelMen Band


ReelMen is a Hamilton, New Zealand, based band that plays in the Irish or Celtic tradition. Weddings, parties and Irish theme nights are our specialties; we play pub nights and concerts too.

For weddings, ReelMen will play your special song if you like, and everything from the first dance to the last waltz, and the ragey stuff in between. We can play during your ceremony too if you wish.

ReelMen can give you an evening of called dances, called a Ceilidh, which will transform your gathering into one your guests will talk about for years to come! We will quickly and easily teach you the steps to many group dances and you will be astounded at how easily you will master them!

ReelMen is a four-piece band playing a huge range of instruments including guitar, tin whistle, mandolin, double bass, banjo, bodhran, concertina, spoons, lagerphone, and many more. The repertoire ranges from traditional airs and ballads, to modern rock from the likes of The Proclaimers, Van Morrison, and various Kiwi bands, to intricate arrangements of Celtic instrumentals, and to just about anything that takes our fancy!
