For the more adventurous bride and groom who’d rather steer clear of a standard wedding band we can also provide a huge variety of world music acts for weddings. We have authentic Mariachi Bands, Latin act and of course Highland pipers but here’s a slightly more off the wall selection who we work with.

Afro Samba’s (above)unique sound creates an air of sophistication to help make your big day just a little bit more special. The band can perform laid back background music at your ceremony drinks party or simple as some light accompaniment to your wedding reception. Available in a range of different line-ups, band members are versatile and highly experienced. With a repertoire that encompasses classic Bossa Nova, Musica Popular Brasileira, Samba, Choro, Forró, Baiāo & Maracatu they can tailor their performance to offer songs that will suit all of your guests.

Providing blistering eastern brass harmonies and high-energy rhythms the Baghdaddies (left) are inspired by the Roma wedding and brass band music of the Balkans, fused by eclectic musical influences ranging from calypso and jazz to punk, The Baghdaddies are an experience not to be missed and they can even add a belly dancer if required.

The Court of Equity (below right) are a developing group within one of Scotland’s leading folk rock bands The Picts. They are effectively a laid back acoustic version of this band and focus mainly on the works of Robert Burns and other well known traditional and original songs. The band have performed at many festivals including The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and recently they have performed a sell out concert at The Brunton Theatre. On a corporate level they have performed for many famous companies including the Microsoft Burns Supper and the Highland Hospice. The Court

From the dimly-lit cafes and humid dance halls of Paris in the 1940’s. Fleur de Paris (below) bring to life the romance and drama of Paris in the golden era of Chanson, Jazz and Swing.

Featuring beautiful arrangements of classic French singers like Lucienne Delyle, Charles Trenet and Edith Piaf, and with a touch of the Hot Club sound of Django Reinhardt. The 5 piece band, led by charming French songstress Lo will transport you back in time. The accordion, violin, guitar and double bass authentically capture the orchestral magic and smooth cinematic jazz of wartime Paris.
