Their set includes traditional Scots classics such as 'Scotland the Brave', 'Flower of Scotland' and '500 miles' plus rock classics like , 'Layla', 'We Will Rock You', 'Smoke on the Water' and bringing things up to date by covering the likes of Franz Ferdinand and even Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance'.

Testimonials

"Bags of Rock were absolutely fantastic!! Gregor was always pleasant and helpful to talk to before-hand and on the night.

The act was everything that I expected it to be and more. Our guests (Scottish and English) LOVED them too. They were entertaining in its truest sense. I think people thought that the two pipers, who came on first were ideal at an event in Scotland, then when the Guitar and dancers burst in they were amazed and delighted. Brilliant! Moving from genre to genre effortlessly and highly professionally. Everyone should book them as no event would be as good without them. They are highly charged, exciting and just fantastically entertaining."
