“We just wanted to say a massive thanks for your piping and the bands playing yesterday! We had a great time despite the chaos of clueless foreign dancers!

We will recommend you to a few couples we know who are planning to get married in Edinburgh in the coming year.

Thanks for everything!!”

— Keith and Steph

“We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to yourself and the rest of the band for playing at our wedding on Saturday 6th May, at Napier Craighouse. We thought you were brilliant!

After the wedding, many of our guests also commented on how good you all were.

We must also thank you for letting our DJ use your sound system until the end of the night, it was very kind of you and probably a bit cheeky of us, so thanks again for that. Hope everything is going great with the band.

THANKS AGAIN!”

— Lisa & Simon

“I am sorry it has taken so long to write to you to thank you for providing the music at our wedding last year. We have just received a video my uncle took of the day, mostly of the dancing, and hearing you playing again reminded us how fantastic you were. It’s hard to take it all in on the day!

It can’t have been easy for you in the stifling heat, so thank you for being so professional! So many people complimented us on our choice of band and asked for your details. I would most certainly recommend you to anyone hosting an event.”

“This is just to say thank you so very much for doing the ceilidh for us on our wedding day. It was such good fun and Iain and I really loved your music! We would like to go to one of your other ceilidhs to truly experience it without our heads being in a blur!”

— Rebecca

“One of the best parts of the day was the ceilidh dance at the reception. With half of the guests from America and the other half from England, only a handful of guests had ever been to a ceilidh, but our band did a fantastic job of keeping it simple and fun. The music, spinning, stomping, and clapping kept the atmosphere lively and had people happily chatting and dancing together all night long. “
