Don't just take our word for it, see what some of our lovely customers have to say about us:
Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding reception and were great from start to finish!!! Played a mixture of music with some requests also!! Could not have been happier!! Everyone commented on how good they were and the dance floor was never empty!! Only took half an hour for a break which was also a boost!! Asking us at half time - if everything was okay and if there was anything else we wanted them to play. Hire a band were also great - keeping us updated with what was happening and when payments were due, which was also helpful whilst planning a wedding!! Dee Craig and Scott were a nice bunch of guys and very talented musicians, who could not have been more accommodating. Thank you so much!! Wish we could do it all over again!!

Angela Rooney - Daughter's 30th Birthday Party - Holiday Inn, East Kilbride
Hire a Band was a really easy way to view a number of bands. The payment process and communication was great.
Lesley-Anne Duffy & Andrew Jordan
On top of completing the feedback forms we wanted to write and thank you so much for the part your services played on the day of our wedding. We married on the 5th July at the George Hotel in Edinburgh and 2 weeks later people are still telling us how great the music was at our wedding. Superbly performed music can really make all the difference and we got that result. Andy Lucas played beautifully, was the most professional and polite person to deal with and we had several people ask us if they could take him home! He oozed class during the ceremony and drinks reception and had people mesmerised. Classic Noir just blew us all away! Gav was super efficient with all the pre wedding communications and gave us both great confidence that they’d play a blinding set with all the right classics and modern floor fillers too. They built the intensity up to a huge finale and for all that we’ve been getting praise for finding and hiring them it’s really those lads who deserve all the credit for being just awesome. We love a party and at some point (maybe my impending 40th!) we’ll be back to see you at Hire A Band.

A lovely guy with a talent for the job.
Hayley & Kevin Whalen - Glenskirlie Castle
A few months ago I was put on the organising committee for a large corporate event. One of my responsibilities was to find a band to be centre of the evening's entertainment; not having any previous experience of this I looked on the internet and came across www.hireaband.co.uk. The website was conveniently organised by location and had detailed descriptions and videos of the all bands so very quickly I was able to identify some suitable bands and send in my enquiry. At that point I starting dealing with Martin Kyprianides, who from the start was incredibly helpful, quick to respond, and patient through all the hoops of corporate process. Would highly recommend hireaband and Martin in particular; should I ever be involved in organising a similar event, I will definitely use them again!
Aidan De Gruchy - IBM
Dealing with Hireaband is a pleasure - for someone who doesn't get involved in hiring bands you are amazing and helpful. Your information is excellent and the staff really helpful. Favours were terrific - Claire has an amazing voice - everyone commented on how good they were and they kept the dance floor busy. A band can make or break the event - this is the 2nd time I have done business with Hireaband and would recommend them and I do, to brides, corporate team etc - Hireaband are the avenue to hiring the best band for your event.Thanks again everyone involved. A delighted customer again.
Myself and my new husband would like to extend thanks to Paul (Paul Binnie - DJ) and to hireaband.

Can't fault Hireaband one bit. It was so easy booking the band for my wedding through you, I received the contract straightaway and it was a great weight off my mind knowing that the band were secured. It also was really easy to contact anyone at the office, as I needed duplicate copies of the contract and this wasn't a problem, it was also great being put in touch direct with the band as we met up with them a few weeks before to see them play. Studio were FANTASTIC, can't thank them enough for making the night such a success, the dance floor was packed all night and they agreed to play on for an extra 1/2 hour. Everyone was asking where we had found the band as they were so impressed.

I have already recommended to friends who are getting married.
Julie & Dominic Chalmers, Lodge on Loch Lomond,
We would like to thank you very much for providing the Smooth Jazz Duo to play at our wedding ceremony and champagne reception, at Turnberry on 10th Sept.
They were absolutely brilliant, and their music was perfect for both the ceremony and drinks reception after.
Our guests loved their music, and they definitely added to the occasion.
We can’t thank you and the boys enough,
Alison & Dougie Mabon
Just wanted to drop a quick note to pass on my thanks to Groove Station for their performance on Saturday night. They certainly made the impression we wanted with the dance floor filled to bursting for the majority of the night. We received a lot of positive comments about their performance both during and after their set and I would definitely recommend them for future occasions.
Many thanks again for helping us to organise a band at such short notice.

Just a quick not to say how much we loved Gangsters of Groove for our wedding. They were fantastic and had everyone up and dancing straight away.
They sang our first dance song which was Razorlight "wire to wire" perfectly we were over the moon. We have already had a lot of people asking about them as they made such an impact. We cannot say enough how great they were and for making our wedding one to remember.
We would also like to thank Hire a Band for being so helpful as well.

Just a note to let you know that Graham (The Elton Experience) arrived safely and that his performance exceeded all our expectations.

I thought the Hireaband site was very informative & I liked how various bands were grouped according to size/cost etc... which made choosing a band much easier. The descriptions were very helpful as were the sample soundtracks. The price you quoted was very competitive & probably average for most bands of that calibre.
Thanks Again Emma Alison -

Thank you again for all your help and we had a fantastic wedding reception as everyone loved Slinky and the dancefloor was packed the whole night.
Dawn & Christopher O'Malley - Glenskirlie House Hotel
We wanted to make sure we had a fantastic band for our wedding and that's why we came to Hireaband. We attended a showcase where we saw Roadhouse and we made up our minds instantly. At the wedding, Alan came and introduced himself to us and we was really nice and friendly. We were certainly not disappointed with their performance as they exceeded our expectations. Everyone was saying how great the band where on the night and now 7 weeks on, they are still the talking point! Roadhouse truely were fantastic and made the night celebrations a fantastic success. So a very big thank you to Roadhouse and Hireaband.

Michael Buble and Feeva were brilliant. Everyone was up there on the dance floor straight away. No holding back.
Both Kevin Rodgerand the girls (Feeva) were great and so accommodating and helpful.
We missed a proper introduction for the girls which I feel bad about but do you know they were so professional and straight into whooping up the audience.
I can't thank you enough for all your support in helping us get ready for this lunch every year.
I suppose now it all starts again. Get your thinking cap on!
Thanks again, see you soon and all the best for now

Bravo to Marcus who played at our recent Cocktail Party in Edinburgh. He arrived before we did, set up without fuss and played a selection of his repetoire throughout the course of the evening - fantastic. Our guests loved him and he was gracious enough to play a specific song that one of our guests wanted to sing for us. I would highly recommend him and Hireaband - a great service. Thanks again for making our night special.
I hope you’re well.
I just wanted to say a BIG BIG thank you for organising Gangsters of Groove for our function at Crieff Hydro on Saturday 25th September. To say that the whole company and our CEO was ‘blown away’ would be an understatement!

I will definitely be giving you a call for future events and will be recommending hireaband wherever possible.
Please pass on our thanks to Roland and the team, they really made our 2010 company away weekend.

Kind Regards Mrs Eleanor J Robertson Mother of the Bride - Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club
We got married on the 15th of July at Strathblane Country House Hotel. Witness were our band, and I just wanted to email to let you know what a fantastic job they did. The dancefloor was busy all night long. They were very flexible, and Jackie has an absolutely wonderful singing voice. My Gran couldn't stop crying when she sang 'fields of gold' as it was very touching. They played an excellent range of songs, and the guitar playing was very good. Loads of people said they loved the band, and I highly recommend them for future brides and grooms.
I also think the service at Hireaband is excellent. For a small fee they take all the hassle out of finding a band, and they take care of all the paper work.

Just a wee quick email to thank you.
We had a truly wonderful wedding day on Friday 4th June and this was topped of by a superb band that was Ernest. for our evening wedding reception at Glenbervie House.
They had the dance floor packed the full night with their range of new and old songs and the ceilidh set. They learned our first and second dance songs which we were so pleased with and even allowed my new husband up with his band to do a couple of songs.

Jason & Lynn booked Heatwave for their wedding
Whenever we contacted Hireaband, whether by email or phone, we were met with outstanding customer service. Then when put in contact with Paul he was extremely professional and approachable. On our wedding day he was set up at the venue in the morning & then kept the dance floor busy all night. He did a great job and we would recommend Paul and Hireaband to anyone and everyone. Thank you!
Aileen & Michael Smith
I am really grateful for the service we received from Hireaband - we had initially booked another band directly after talking to them at the (SECC) wedding show, paid our deposit and signed a contract with them over a year before our wedding. We were unhappy to say the least when they contacted us 6 months after we booked them to say they had double booked us and could no longer perform at our wedding. We were really worried that we would not get a good band to replace them but Hireaband were great and gave us a list of available bands to choose from. Dignan Dowell & White were great and we really enjoyed their music - the guests did too. In the end we were glad we ended up with DDW anyway. Thanks very much and we will definitely nominate you for the Vows awards.
Lorna & Douglas Thain, One Devonshire Gardens
We hired Mystery Train for our wedding at The Auchrannie on the Isle of Arran on the 8th of May.

Hireaband was recommended to us by a friend who had also used the service for their own wedding. It was so simple - I told the girls in the office what I was looking for and they sent me a long list of suitable bands all at different price points. My husband and I checked out the bands on the web site, listened to their tracks and decided on the Jenni Gibb Band. All of our guests were blown away by the quality of the band, they event battled through 4 inches of snow to get here. Thank you hireaband and The Jenni Gibb Band, you helped make our day unforgettable.
Thank you for your help in finding us DeVille. We had a great night and the band was brilliant. They played all the stuff the pupils liked. Have a great Christmas.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to Brian and Craig for helping make the occassion such a success. Many thanks again Del

As a family we have now used the services of Hireaband twice, once for my daughter's wedding on 12th of May 2007, then for our parent's Golden Wedding Anniversary on 6th of March 2009. Each time the service and quality of performers has been excellent. Thank you for helping us have a night to remember.
First class service, the second time I have used Hireaband and no problems what so ever, makes organising an event easier if you personally know the band is going to turn up and you do not need to do the chasing and confirming.
Harry Mills, Future Technology Devices International,
Corra were an amazing band, and provided an excellent service on our wedding day. Living in England but marrying in Scotland, Hireaband gave us the opportunity to listen to different acts before booking without having to travel, and the support and guidance of staff ensured we could book with confidence. Thank you, especially to Jayne and all of Corra, for your part in our perfect day!

It was very straightforward, no hassle. If I was planning an event again I would use Hireaband as Ocean Drive were a good advertisement for the calibre of bands that Hireband use.

Del and his company are people we do business with because we trust them and they know the music scene inside out.

The service I received from Hireaband was brilliant and as I was making my arrangements from Vancouver while getting married in Glasgow, the quick responses on email were very much appreciated. Joanne Barrow, Wedding
Trouble free hire, meaning that we would happily use Hireaband again and recommend this service to friend and colleagues.
Annette Coburn, University Of Strathclyde
Please note that the service that I received from Hireaband was excellent.

Hireaband were exceptionally helpful and gave very good advice. DeVille and Select Strings were fantastic and put the finishing touches to a great day.
Jennifer Harris (Mother of Groom), Wedding, Culcreuch Castle,
Both Hireaband and DeVille were a delight to work with. In my final stages of wedding meltdown these guys made everything that little bit easier when regarding the entertainment. Though David and I had a more unconventional beginning and end to our wedding, DeVille seemed more than happy to go along with our 'ideas' and hopefully found them funny and maybe slightly original! From allowing a CD to play the first and second song (DeVille are amazing but aybe switching from Michael Buble to Take That within seconds was asking a bit much!) to singing the Hokey Cokey as our last song (with a hidden 'Shamone'!) these guys were professional, friendly, fun and tremendously entertaining. I wouldn't think twice about recommending them to friends, family and anyone else who would listen! Thanks again boys, you'll be seeing us again at the next excuse for a party!
Sarah McLaughlin & David Gallagher, Wedding, Airth Castle,
Dealing with Hireaband was very easy and communication with the company was extremely easy, from dealing with the initial booking and band choice to receiving confirmation and receipts. The Jenni Gibb Band were truly fantastic - I would have danced all night if they'd let me! They played an excellent mix of music and many of the guests commented on how great they sounded. We had spent a long time going to many band nights trying to pick the right band for our wedding. The last thing we wanted was a cheesy school disco - I am pleased to say that the Jenni Gibb Band were definitely not that! A truly talented band, we had a great time, thanks.
Debbie & Jeremy Browne, Wedding, Piersland House Hotel,
I have been very impressed with the service received from Hireaband and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone. When the band originally booked were unable to play at very short notice, a replacement band was found and the issue handled very professionally. Many thanks for giving us peace of mind and helping to make our event a success.
Diane Peebles, BFC Linlithgow,
I found Hireaband extremely efficient and they also provided advice on the type of entertainment and different options that would be suitable for my wedding. The DJ was very good, played a good mixture of music to suit all tastes and everyone had a great time.

Hireaband made the whole process of organising wedding entertainment effortless and the wedding showcase is a great idea. Everyone was a great help and answered questions promptly.

Karen Milne, Marie Curie Cancer Care Daffodil Ball, Hilton Glasgow,
Hi Del, just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you very much for recommending both Jane Godley and the lovely George Michael for the Women Of Influence Lunch event yesterday. Both of them went down a storm with the audience and I thought they were fab! Speak to you soon and once again thanks for your help.
Kylie Forrest, KL Events,
Hireaband were fantastic from start to finish. Even if my original point of contact was not available, everyone I spoke to knew (or sounded like they knew!) all details of my booking. My questions were answered promptly and efficiently and at all times I was made to feel like I was important to them and not "just another booking". As for Moondance, they were one of the main reasons I believe our wedding was better than anyone else's I have ever been to!! I would be more than happy to give personal recommendations about them as, having worked for ten years in the hospitality industry, I have never been more impressed with a bands approach to a wedding/event.
Andrea Patterson & James Thacker, Wedding, Wedderburn Castle,
Thank you so much for providing The MacDonald Brothers for our Burns Supper on Saturday, they were brilliant. All our guests were up and dancing and appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves.

We were really delighted with the band's performance - they certainly made the reception one to remember. Kind regards, and thanks again.

The band Nightshift were really excellent and had the dancefloor full all night so delighted that we found them through Hireaband. Hireaband were so efficient and professional - could not fault them in anyway.
Bronagh Gavigan, Wedding, Melville Castle,
We would highly recommend Hireaband. We found the service excellent and the band we hired (Stewart Reid Band) were just perfect. All our guests commented on how amazing the band was.

They really made our night!
Lorna Gold, Wedding, Glenbervie House,
Couldn't fault anything - very impressed with the whole arrangement. Lots of help before the event in deciding which act to choose. Thank you.
Alison Wiseman, Caring For Kids,
Hiring a band online was a bit daunting, but what can I say, Head To Head were excellent. Our guests gave us very positive feedback and even the hotel management enquired where we had found such a great band. Thanks for helping us to make our special day fantastic.

Dear Del & Lisa, on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Care, I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank both of you for your help and support on the run up to, and on the night of our Great Daffodil Ball which we held in the Hilton Glasgow on 11 March this year. We really appreciated your time and effort taken, which ensured a smooth running event - with brilliant entertainment - we have had lots of positive feedback which is great - but just means we need to think of something special for next year.
Brenda Johnstone, Daffodil Ball Coordinator,
"I just wanted to say thanks for arranging Hailidgh and Marianne (Love Abba) for our event last night. We had a great time (I certainly did while I was dancing at the back!). We received some very complimentary comments about them and I think they were ideal for the event. I'm sorry I missed you when you left, but I hope you had a safe journey back to the west, and it was good to see you again. I'll no doubt be back in touch for next years ceremony, but thanks again and hope the business keeps coming!"
Hireaband were always helpful and friendly. As I live in England, and was getting Married in Scotland, the agency were essential in organising a band. We chose Moondance, who were super!

Hogmanay Celebrations, Mar Hall,
You guys really deserve your success. I have nothing but praise for the way you deal with things and the quality of your acts etc. I also had a panic just before the wedding when our drummer let us down and you were able to put my mind at rest that hireaband would be able to get me a band. Thanks again, and I really wish you continued success, you deserve it!

We have been orgainising an ''end of summer'' event for several years, and i have had more positive feedback for this year than any other event. The patients enjoyed the event immensely. Please pass on our thanks to the artistes who 'struck the right note' in what i am sure, was an alien environment to them. I will have no hesitation in using your company again, and I have no qualms in recommending you to anyone else. Thank you again.

Just wanted to touch base with you regarding our event requirements for 2004. Over the past couple of years hireaband.co.uk have contributed greatly to the success of many of our events, the Sunday Mail Great Scot Awards in particular. It goes without saying that we hope to continue this partnership through 2004 and beyond. I'll be in touch once the dates and venues of our forthcoming events have been confirmed - this should only be a few weeks at most. Thanks again for all of your help last year. Kind regards,
Lynn Scott (Events Manager First Press Events)
