The Famous Potatoes can provide a stomping good musical concert or a full-on barn dance complete with caller and dance instructions.
Our famous barn dances
A barn dance is one of the most popular and fun events you can organise.
The Famous Potatoes have two experienced barn dance callers and can give you a thoroughly entertaining and exciting evening, even if none of your guests have barn danced before! Our caller will explain the dance first, giving you the chance to walk through the steps and get used to how the dance goes, then will continue to call the steps while you are dancing to the music.
Our usual pattern for the evening is to have a couple of dances, then a short break to allow the dancers to recuperate. This is flexible and we will adapt as necessary to suit the circumstances.
Our Good Time Musical Show
If it’s a simple concert you’re after we can do that too. This doesn’t mean that our audience does not dance!
We can provide a full evening’s programme of song from our extensive back catalogue. Just take a look at our discography to find out more about our tunes.
Everything is supplied
We supply our own public address system. For the technically minded, this consists of two large Peavey loudspeakers, four small Bose monitor speakers, a 20-channel Yamaha mixer/amplifier, and a small Fender M-300 amplifier to drive our monitor speakers. We can also bring extra loudspeakers for when we play in really big barns. If you have your own P.A. which you want us to use, please note that as we have a large number of acoustic instruments, we need a minimum of eight microphones.
The cost depends on timing and location of the event. Complete our booking form and we will get back to asap with a quote.
