Here’s a selection of some older Scottish wedding bands for hire through Freak Music, a bit of everything here:
The Dawn Patrol are an exciting and unique covers band for all weddings and functions. The great vocals are perfectly complemented by the band’s exceptional musical talent offering an exciting collection of songs with something for everyone. The band who work hard to sound great and to deliver energetic, top quality performances. Their music experiences both collectively and individually are impressive; they can boast to playing venues such as Shepherds Bush Empire London, T in the Park, The Barrowlands, The O2 Academy and The South by South West festival in Texas. The skills of the individual members, both vocally and instrumentally, have lent themselves to many recording opportunities in the studio which is of great credit to their ability. Their many experiences of music and performing are reflected in their own performances which incorporate a wide variety of genres and always deliver an outstanding combination of vocals and musical talent.
Let the Gangsters of Groove turn your wedding reception or party night into a truly memorable event that all your guests will be talking about for months to come. This stunning three-piece band will blow you away with their fantastic versions of floor-fillers from all eras and to suit all tastes. From Sinatra to stadium rock, from 70s Glam to Lady Gaga, the Gangsters of Groove cover so many genres (disco, hard-rock, jazz, pop, funk, punk, soul… you name it!) that there really is something for everyone. Is a scottish wedding complete without a Ceilidh? If you want an excuse to swing that kilt the Gansters of Groove will “call one of their guys” and have him come over with a violin case. Don’t worry, it really is just a fiddle in there!
Petra and the PT Cruisers are a rockabilly/rock and roll band with a huge repertoire of popular classics and lesser known gems. The majority of songs are original 50’s rockabilly or rock and roll numbers such as – Jailhouse Rock, Long Tall Sally, Hound Dog, Roll Over Beethoven, Blue Moon of Kentucky, Jump The Broomstick etc. They also incorporate songs by lesser known artists such as Janis Martin (Drugstore Rock, My Boy Elvis), Muddy Waters (I Just Wanna Make Love to you) for the die hard 50s fans. As well as these classics songs they incorporate some modern rockabilly songs from Imelda May and The Stray Cats. Although these are not original 50’s songs, they are very much rock and roll/rockabilly tunes and will not fail to get you up on the dance-floor in your best swing skirt!
