IT'S SHOWTIME! 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 all the right reasons.
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, 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 Gangsters 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!
So if you're looking for more than just an average band, a band that really knows how to put on a show and raise the roof on a party, then get in touch with the Gangsters of Groove and "make them an offer they can't refuse."
The Boss at Hireaband says; "This is a band made up of former members of some of the biggest bands in the country. Once the shock of the loud suits wears off (and they have a more formal look if required - see below) you'll realise you've booked one of the best bands money can buy.

Everything was excellent, from the initial contact with Hireaband to the performance on the night. We especially appreciated that Hireaband stayed in contact with us over the course of our planning, we had absolutely no worries about everything being under control on the night - something which was invaluable to us. There was a small technical hitch on arrival which delayed the start of the performance slightly, but this was resolved quickly and professionally. The performance itself was incredible - energetic, interactive, eclectic. . . we really couldn't have asked for more. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend both Hireaband and Gangsters of Groove to anyone looking for an incredible night's entertainment!

Alistair Houston & Kerry Wallace
Staff at Hireaband polite and helpful any time I called. With regard to our fabulous band, The Gangsters of Groove were awesome! They made our night and we all had a fantastic time. So many of our guests have asked who our band were and everyone seems to have had a fantastic time! Their set list was great and varied but most of all fun! Roland and the gang accommodated our request for the first dance and were even prepared to do the Grand Old Duke of York to keep our flowergirls happy. I cannot praise the band highly enough and would recommend them to anyone, anytime. Thanks again Hireaband and to The totally fabulous Gangsters!
Monica Canning & Neil Anderson
From start to finish with our booking, it was clearly in professional hands.The band made the night so special and all ages commented on how special this trio are. It was a rocking night and we hardly left the dance floor. Many thanks to Roland, Mhari and Chris and all at Hire a Band.

Hi Roland, Slightly late but I just wanted to say a huge thank you from Julie and myself for playing our wedding last Saturday, you did an absolutely amazing job. We've just been sitting watching the videos of the evening and everyone is obviously having a whale of a time, thanks in no small part to the energy you guys put into your performance! If anyone I know gets married in the future you are definitely getting my recommendation! Thanks again,
Steve Williams, Airth Castle
The band were absolutely fantastic! The dance floor was full pretty much for the whole night . They were entertaining and really put on a great show. Most definitely will recommend!
Gangsters of Groove played a huge part in making our evening a roaring success! They are fabulously talented musicians and singers and we were so impressed with the range of songs they performed. Hireaband were always prompt and helpful in their communication about the event, as were the band when we were put in touch with them directly. Gangsters of Groove didn't just play songs they put on a SHOW! All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the band and the dance floor was full all evening. Overall we are delighted with the service from Hireaband and thrilled with our decision to choose Gangsters of Groove.

Kirstie & Brian Rankin, Brisbane House Hotel
Hi Heather, We just wanted to drop you a line to say how pleased we were with The Gangsters of Groove who performed for us at our Wedding on Saturday 20.08.11 at Wedderburn Castle. They exceeded expectations and made our evening so much fun. They really are professionals and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone in the future. Thanks for your service and assistance during our preparations. Many thanks and best regards
Jacquie and Graham Barclay Wedderburn Castle
They were amazing live; I was happily surprised by how good they sounded at every genre. I booked them because of their repertoire and because they do Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses which is my favourite song. They performed an incredible, credible version complete with impressive vocals and guitar solo. They knew exactly what songs to play to work a crowd effectively and made our, quite small, wedding feel like a real party. Guests have not stopped raving about them. They were a bargain; money well spent. Many thanks for the best night of my life.

Nicola & Craig Riddick, Inchyra Grange
Hi Roland Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the Band - everyone has been saying it is the best wedding band they had heard and the music was a huge hit with young and old alike. I was so delighted to see the dance floor packed and you really kept the atmosphere going. Many thanks again and we will definitely recommend you to others!
Joanne & Craig Duffy - Glenbervie House
Lisa, 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 alot of people asking about them as they made such an impact. We can not 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. Kind Regards
Susan and James Weir - Carnbooth House Hotel
Dear Roland, Chris & Marie Thank you so much for performing at our wedding. You were absolutely fantastic. Everyone was blown away by how amazing you all sounded. You definitely made our wedding reception a party to remember. Thank you also for doing the Proclaimers as our first dance, it brings back so many happy memories for us. You are an awesome band, we will remember you fondly for many years to come. With much love and thanks.
Ashley & Brian, House for an Art Lover,
Just a wee note to say a huge thanks for the 28th of Dec. We had an amazing time and your band's performance was a big part of it. Our guests have given fabulous feedback and we wanted to pass that on. Hopefully we will see you all at some point again. Hopefully you got your hat back!
Suzanne and Charles Anderson Glenbervie House
Hi Del, 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! From their first track right through to the finale they had the dance floor packed with back to back party crackers. If it wasn't for your recommendation we might never have been fortunate enough to have been entertained by Gangsters of Groove who had a big band presence that far exceeded their 3 members (excluding the fiddler who got the ceilidh going full swing too)! Their talent, voices and personalities out shone any bands I’ve heard before and would give the ‘top 40’ a run for their money any day! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you, your advice and professionalism was really appreciated and took the stress out of being responsible for making sure the entertainment was spot on. 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
Emma Anderson - Simmons & Co.
The band were fab! Everyone had a great time, so many people asked where we got their details from as they were really that good!
