Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Scotland

What styles of music do your Scotland wedding bands play?

For a blend of timeless classics and modern chart hits, hire a wedding band in Scotland to play rock and pop classics, including hits by local bands such as Runrig and the Proclaimers, and modern favourites Franz Ferdinand and the Fratellis.

Or how about hiring a soul band? They’ll keep your guests dancing with classics by James Brown, Michael Jackson and Scottish stars the Average White Band.

Do all your wedding bands bring their own sound and lighting equipment?

All our bands are fully self-contained with their own PA sound system, microphones, backline amplifiers and instruments. This works really well for most marquee or indoor weddings.

Let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the act’s system is large enough.

Most bands will also bring lighting for both the stage and dancefloor.

Check the act's individual profile for more details and optional add-ons to enhance the show!

Can your wedding bands learn a special song for our first dance?

Most bands will be happy to learn and perform your first dance request – provided they think they can arrange it for their line-up and do it justice!

Check the act’s profile to see what they can offer and if they can’t do it live, they could just play it through their PA system using Spotify or an mp3 player.

Can you also provide Scotland wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Wedding music isn’t just about the final party.

If you're looking for background music to accompany your drinks reception or meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers.

If you're after Scotland wedding musicians for the bridal entrance, exit or the signing of the register, our harpists or string quartets are a popular choice to make those moments extra special.

Where in the Scotland area do your wedding bands perform?

We have entertainment in Scotland for all budgets and tastes, and our acts have provided a joyous soundtrack for brides and grooms all over the country at venues such as: Lodge on Loch Goil, The Caves, Burnhouse Manor Hotel, Wedderburn Castle, Dryburgh Abbey Hotel, Easterbrook Hall, Gleddoch House Hotel, Hamilton Park, Sherbrooke Castle Hotel, Stonefield Castle and many more.

We can provide wedding bands in Aberdeen, Dundee, Paisley, East Kilbride, Livingston, Hamilton, Cumbernauld, Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, Ayr, Perth, Inverness, Kilmarnock, Coatbridge, Greenock, Glenrothes, Airdrie and Stirling.

See also our more specific regional listings: wedding bands in Glasgow and wedding bands in Edinburgh.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Scotland area, such as ceilidh, steel pan or jazz bands?

If you’re not into dancing to The Killers in your kilt or spinning to the Strokes in your sporran, how about hiring a different Scotland function band?

Ceilidh bands make great wedding entertainment and are fantastic for children.

Our jazz bands play a diverse selection of sophisticated classics.

Hire a background jazz trio to play during your reception or banquet, then take it up a notch with a local swing band later on.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your party band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.

If you haven't yet set your date, consider booking a midweek or winter occasion to take advantage of the most competitive rates.

Always consider hiring a band from your local area, to save on travel and accommodation costs.

We have bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
