Scotland's Ceilidh Band will give you an evening you'll want to tell your children about!

Choosing the right type of band for a wedding reception can be a daunting and time-consuming experience. You may favour one type of band - but will this suit your guests? What range of ages are going to be present at the evening reception? What size of venue have you already booked for your wedding?

With Scotland's Ceilidh Band you are guaranteeing an evening that will suit the needs of the wedding party and your guests. With other types of wedding function band, the choice of venue can prove constraining - particularly with dance space and stage space for the band - this seldom is the case with a ceilidh band.

Scotland's Ceilidh Band can range in size, from 2 players upwards, and our high-tech digital sound and lighting equipment is both versatile and portable. We are equally at home in a small function suite as we are in a high-roofed hall with stage. Our musical expertise, people skills and top-drawer sound equipment is such that you can be sure that the dance floor will be full whatever your wedding venue.

From the moment we speak on the phone and confirm your booking, to the moment we turn up at your chosen venue - we've got your needs and best interests at heart.  At Scotland's Ceilidh Band we pride ourselves in sculpting your Scottish wedding ceilidh to meet the needs of your special day. You may want to include special requests - for the first dance, last waltz or indeed for any dance during the evening. You may want a small slot in your wedding night for selected guests in your audience to sing a song ... or two. At your request we'll restrict Uncle Bertie to just one ballad though!

  "J ust getting round to letting you know how things went last week. 

 Both the Ceilidh and the Disco that followed were superb, exactly what we were after. Donald and John were first class and their choice of dances for the ceilidh was excellent. They did a couple that made sure virtually everyone got involved which was just what we wanted. Loads of our English guests got stuck in too and really enjoyed it despite the fact most of them had never been to a ceilidh before."

Craigsanquhar House, Dec '09

"Donald got all the songs we wanted for the Disco which was really appreciated as we had requested a couple of obscure tunes.
All in all, they really rounded off what was a fantastic day in super style. Professional, flexible if needed and extremely friendly. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending you in the future!

Many, many thanks again,

Kind regards,

John and Victoria Leonard  

  " Thank you so much for your fantastic performance and fun we had at our wedding at Sandgreen last Saturday. I really cannot describe in words how much we loved it, and we really didn't want the night to end! It was great to see all of our guests joining in and enjoying it as much as we did! They have been raving about it ever since, and all our single friends are now planning their weddings to be just like ours! The celidh was so much fun, and great entertainment, and there was not a hint of 'cheesy yuck'!"

Philipa Graham, Wedding, Sandgreen, May '10

"This really is something that we will always remember about our wedding day; it brought our guests together and made the day go with a real (helicopter) swing." 
"I hope that our paths cross again in the future, and that you continue to do what you do for a long time to come."
Kind regards,
Philippa (Williams) Graham
PS - Please could you send me one of your CDs so that we can re-live the dances? Thank you!

"The success of our wedding night was mostly down to the band. People put it up there as one of the best nights they've ever had."
"The ability to marry everyone into the celebration quickly and effectively - it has to be the biggest thing this band
has got going for it."

(Eddie has booked and re-booked our band for family and friends on 9 different occasions since his wedding)

Why not consider our ever popular wedding ceilidh-discos?

We can if you so wish, complement the evening by splitting it 50/50 for example, with disco music. Our digital sound and high performance lighting equipment will ensure that we can seamlessly move from the 'Dashing White Sergeant' into 'Dancing Queen' - or whatever song you choose. Our 'Ceilidh-Discos' have become increasingly popular in recent years because they give guests so much variety and different styles of dancing. We provide you with the option of supplying us with a play-list of favourite songs - and even allow you to warn us off playing your definite 'no-no's' on the evening of your big day.

"Hi Tony, just a quick e-mail to say how fantastic the band were at the wedding on Friday.  Everyone was commenting on how good they were!!  They were very accommodating and did everything that we asked them to do.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.
Thanks again!"

"It might be 6 weeks on from our wedding but all our friends and family are still talking about it. The evening really went with a swing and all my worries about the fact that it was small wedding, (only 40 people), eased away as everyone got on the dancefloor from song number 1. Hardly anyone left the dancefloor as we went through a mix of scottish ceilidh, disco and of course my wonderful friends partaking in a bit of karaoke."

(Lodge on the Loch, 24th August '08)


"I would advise anyone thinking about booking a ceilidh to go ahead - there were family & friends joining in who I have never ever seen on the dancefloor before. I remember us discussing the finishing time and you saying "well if its a bit slow on the dancefloor at 12.30, we'll finish then, if not we'll carry on until 1am - I looked at the clock at 12.20 and everyone was on the floor swinging each other round, even all the children were still up joining in and I thought, well it looks like he'll have to play until 1!"

"Thank you so much for such a great night and making our wedding so memorable & so much fun. Please thank all the band members for us."
Best wishes
Carol & Charlie    


  "Now that we’ve had time to relax after the wedding of Siobhan and Douglas on Saturday 6th  June 09 at Glenskirlie House in Banknock we would like to pass on our thanks to everyone in the band for helping make the reception such a wonderful success on the night."

"After the meal at a wedding reception the music that is played contributes to a successful night - and the band certainly enhanced the evening. The numerous letters we have received from our guests after the wedding certainly substantiate our thoughts that it was such a memorable day and evening."

"Tony, please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band for helping to make it a day that
Siobhan and Douglas will always remember."

Best wishes

Martin Monigatti (Father of the bride)

"Hi Tony, thanks for a great day.  Both the caterers and the band were terrific.  I think we can safely say that everything went extremely well with everyone enjoying themselves in what was effectively a multi-ethnic, multi-national event which people have said they will remember for a long time to come.
I'd like you to thank the individual Band members for their part in making our wedding day a brilliant success.   

We'll be recommending you!"

"We needed to raise money for charity at short notice and didn't know where to start.

Jeffreys, Glasgow
