A mixture of styles from our selection of fully live wedding bands and acts for hire in Scotland.

Magnitude (above) was formed in 2012 when the members of two hardworking duos decided to combine their talents to create an exciting new group. They met when they were playing in two separate functions at the Corinthian in Glasgow. They loved how each other sounded, and after one rehearsal together knew they were onto something special. This four piece band features a power trio rhythm section of guitar, bass and drums from Calvin, Stuart and Jamie with fantastic female lead vocals from Jane and strong male backing vocals from Jamie. This 100% live band always delivers a fun filled evening of high energy dance floor fillers. Their set list contains current pop and rock hits from artists like Bruno Mars, The Killers and Rihanna, along with a mix of classics from every decade stretching back to the 1950’s.

The World’s Rockiest Ceilidh Band (©) The Big Shoogle ceilidh band have over 17 years’ experience playing for weddings and countless events in some of the most prestigious venues at home and overseas. If you want the very best ceilidh with top class professional musicians and a highly experienced dance caller then look no further. If you want a wild party with a Scottish flavour anywhere in the world, contact us. And if you can’t handle a full-on Big Shoogle ceilidh for a whole evening there are the covers of great pop & rock songs, all played live. No backing tracks. It’s like two bands rolled into one. Audiences are amazed that the range of music and sounds all comes from the same three band members. They have a unique approach to ceilidh music blending cajun and rock influences while still remaining solidly rooted in the Scottish tradition. It’s all about sense of humour and everyone having a fantastic time. Ceilidh Tent headliners at T in the Park in 2009, 2010 & 2011 for very good reason.
