August, 2019 - "What a fantastic, awesome show! Folks from 7 to 92 were grinning ear to ear. Kudos have come in throughout the day after to say how much McLeod Nine was enjoyed. Christy and Gordon put on an entertaining, class act show with so much variety. A bit of something for everyone with fun and educational stories to tie it all together. Most enjoyable to visit with as well. Sure glad they came through my neck of the woods!"
August, 2018 - "This was one of the best shows we have had in a very long time! The music was technically excellent, but it was also a great time for the audience! We even learned an easy Ceili dance. We can't wait to have them back."
Feb 2019 -McLeod Nine -- exceptional! Their repertoire is fantastic and diverse and they added a huge element of fun to the night. They are not only great musicians, but also very professional, and got everyone involved with singing and dancing. Several guests commented at how much their music added to the night! Thank you Christy and Gordon! Hope we can book again soon! -Jacqueline G, Southlake, TX
July, 2018 - "McLeod Nine was awesome! They entertained our friends and neighbors even though mother nature didn't cooperate and we had to move everyone to the garage (thank goodness for a big garage!) Christy had us dancing up a storm in there - it was a great time! We would recommend them to everyone!!"
July, 2018 - "Incredibly gifted couple. Fiddle playing beyond anything I have ever seen. Lovely blend of voices, very friendly and engaging the audience to participate. Our group loved the Celtic numbers especially. All of the music was enjoyable. Look forward to seeing them again!"
August, 2017 - "Wow! What fun we had on the patio last night! Christy and Gordon are such incredible people, such incredible musicians, and man can Gordon make the music rise above the trees! Everyone enjoyed the night and gave much praise to the fun Gypsy, Swingy, Funky, Folky Down Home Music! Having everyone join in to sing and shake their egg shakers just made the night! We must have you back again! We must! Love you Christy and Gordon!"
March, 2017 - "It's tough to dance a jig when you're waiting on knee surgery but I surely did so at McLeod Nine's performance. Gordon and Christy McLeod have been striking out on their own of late (usually to be found w popular Dallas based Celtic band, Beyond the Pale) w fantastic results. Playing originals more Americana oriented mixed w some Gypsy Jazz & some Celtic tunes. Great stories peppered w expert & tasty fiddle, guitar & mandolin. Had the audience in their hands. A wonderful evening enjoyed by all!"
