David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

David was absolutely fantastic start to finish. Communication ahead of the day was great and made us feel very confident in our choice. On the day David was fantastic, playing a set that was full of great songs with many guests saying they could just listen to his voice all night. Our personal favourite was playing ‘Sit Down’ by James to get everyone seated for the meal - brilliant! Overall I cannot recommend David highly enough! Thanks again for everything David.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

David is was absolutely amazing, he is so unbelievably talented and so friendly. As a couple we were pretty relaxed but had 2 songs that we absolutely had to have, David learnt the songs we provided and delivered them perfectly during our ceremony and honestly it was just so special. Thank you so much, all of guests comment on how wonderful David sounded and how he really contributed to the atmosphere. We are so lucky to have had you for our special day. Lots of love the Coopers x

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

David played during our wedding drinks reception. He was absolutely fabulous and our guests loved the music he played. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend both David and the Hireaband team. Thank you for helping to make our day so special.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

Hi David, I just wanted to thank you so so much for your attendance and contribution to Holly and Levi’s day on Saturday. You were truly fantastic, I think every guest (and I spoke to every guest ) said how impressed they were. They said your set list was spot on for the occasion, loud enough to enjoy your super voice and know you were there, but no need to shout!

I hope I get the opportunity to book and meet you again because it would be a pleasure to do so.

Thank you again David and I hope you have a fabulous summer of playing for many more happy couples

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

We hired David Rodger for our wedding at very short notice after our daytime entertainment cancelled on us a few weeks before!
A slightly stressful situation to be in and although we were desperate, we couldn't have been happier with how things ended up.
David has a great voice, his song choices were spot on and his performance created a great atmosphere for our drinks reception. Would highly recommend.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

David Rodger is an exceptional performer, all guest on the night commented extremely positively and truly enjoyed David's music throughout, he was fantastic we would certainly not hesitate to contact again for other events.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

David was amazing!!
We chose songs for our ceremony, and David sang them perfectly - particularly our song to walk down the aisle!
David is a very easy going and genuine guy, who would suit any occasion. His range in music suited everyone at our wedding (aged 19-70+) and he even let my uncle take over the microphone to sing a song of his choice.. sorry David!
Would definitely hire David again if we are looking for a musician. Thank you so much!!

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

Dave was absolute amazing. So nice and professional at the start and then when he started playing and singing he completely mesmerized the room.
We originally booked Dave so that he would add a bit of buzz to our event and he certainly delivered on that score with everyone up dancing and carrying on.
We cannot recommend Dave enough and hopefully we find an excuse to book him again in the future!

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

Massive thanks to David! Music was fantastic and we had so many people complimenting the performance both during and after the wedding! A truly memorable experience! Wonderful from start to finish!

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

Amazing from start to finish as expected and have already recommended both the artist and service as a whole. Thanks to all.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

David Rodger was excellent, I would hire him again and would recommend him. Our wedding guests were very happy with his performance as was our team here at Kilcamb lodge.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

Just to say we had David Rodger at Stirling Castle for our wedding event on Saturday night and he was fantastic. Very easy to work with and a brilliant musician. The bride and groom asked him to play on a bit beyond midnight, which he did and that was really well received.Please pass on our thanks to him for being so accommodating as well as so talented! Kind Regards and hope to work with you again.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

There cannot be enough good things to be said about David. He is the embodiment of professionalism and a great musician. David learned our first dance song and performed it flawlessly, he even recorded the song and sent it to us as a little keepsake. His set list was on site and guests were free to make requests from it. I think we only saw him take one break during the night. David was great for our smaller group but would do equally well with larger groups. Guests were all impressed with David and we would book him again.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

Hi David, I was so happy with your version of ‘Down Under’ in the church, I really, really, really loved it. Thank you so much for playing for us at both the church and Carberry Tower. Everyone commented on how great you were

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

I recently booked David Rodger to play a solo acoustic set at my wedding. He played just after the first dance and got the party started with everyone up dancing. The set list was agreed beforehand plus he was very accommodating as he has such a large selection of songs from different genres. I asked him to learn a special song and this was no problem to him. He was very professional when setting up and in his interactions with our guests. We were thrilled with the entertainment he provided and wouldn't hesitate in recommending others to book him for their special day.

David Rodger - Guitar and Vocals

We were very fortunate to have discovered Dave at our friend's annual music festival 'McD in the Park' a couple of years ago and when we started planning our Wedding Day we instantly knew we wanted Dave to be part of our day.

From our first contact with Dave, we found him to have a very professional and personable nature which helped make planning our drinks reception a fun and exciting experience with every confidence that it would be a great part of our wedding day.

We were absolutely delighted when Dave said he was able to add to his usual repertoire with our request for a surprise Kylie song. Walking into our drinks reception just after getting married to 'The One' was truly magical and gave us the opportunity to have an impromptu celebratory first dance as husband and wife surrounded by our loved ones. Dave then played a few more sets and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed listening, dancing and watching him play, not to mention his varied set list that met a wide range of music tastes for any age.

If you are looking for a fabulously talented professional musician to play at your special occasion, then we cannot recommend him highly enough.
