We were asked so many times ‘how we found you’ (Steve – we will definitely recommend your website to others), the dancefloor was always busy and it was so great that our friend Jake was able to play with you guys on the harmonica during the night. Thanks also for playing a few Scottish tunes”
House for An Art Lover, Glasgow – June 2010

“You guys were brilliant, everyone commented on how good you were, although we did have one complaint – one couple kept trying to get off the dance floor but you just kept playing great song after great song and they couldn’t leave !!!!!! “The Killers” – “All these things that I’ve done” – is my favourite song of all time and we have heard it at least three or four time played by live by The Killers and your version did it real credit. I had hoped you would play it and we had pre-arranged no matter where we were or who we were talking to that we would meet for that song. ”

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for playing at our wedding on the 15th May at the Atholl Palace. You were absolutely fantastic and we could not have asked for anything better. You knew exactly what to play and I don’t think the dancefloor was empty the whole night. We were at a wedding a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t help but notice nobody really got up and danced until after the buffet when half the night was gone!  But we ceratinly got our moneys worth out of you and we didn’t want the night to end.  We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and have already had a few guests from our wedding ask for your details for their own weddings coming up. Thank you again for the amazing night you gave us. Kind regards”
Sarah & Kevin MacDonald – Atholl Palace- May – 2010

Thank you so very much.”

Thanks very much. Myself and Lindsey were very aware that the band can make or break the night and you guys definitely made it a cracking night. We’re delighted we made such a good choice, and lots of our guests commented on how well you played. Personal favourite for me was you guys doing “I Predict a Riot”, that was tremendous. I look forward to hearing your cover of `Black Eyed Peas` as well. I’m sure it’ll be as high a standard as everything else we heard. So thanks again, and if we’re looking for a band again I’ll be in touch.”

Gayle & Chris Wozencroft – Sherbrooke Hotel – Glasgow – May 2009.

“Is it wrong that i take such delight in discussions with my wedding guests when they mention previous weddings and all the faults of the bands/entertainment, only to marvel at the fun they had at ours?? The dance floor was never empty from start to finish with enthusiastic dancers from ages 3 to 85. Even given a moment to catch our breath with the well timed slower waltzes, when I thought people were waning, you pulled a “Sweet Caroline” out of the bag and we couldn’t resist dragging our aching bones back with a vengeance – magnificent judges of audience. Prompt, professional, accommodating, and much much fun.”
