Strange Bru, The Glasgow Wedding Band With Real Fizz

Hireaband wedding band showcases are a great way for couples to get up close and personal with a hand picked selection of the finest bands the nation has to offer.

But they're also an opportunity for us here at HIreaband Towers to catch up with our musician friends, have a gossip and hear how the band is developing their ever expanding repertoire.

So on Wednesday the 17th April, we arrived up in East Kilbride at The Holiday Inn full of expectations of a busy night of bands, bookings, brides and beer! 

It was going to be the first time for us to hear the new band Strange Bru, put together by our old friend Gregor McPhie who we've worked with for years in his time with the Red Hot Chili Pipers and Bags of Rock.

Strange Bru with Hire A Band

Now we know Gregor well enough to expect great things, and boy were our expectations met. Strange Bru kicked off a storming set of crowd pleasers and had the 200 plus audience eating out of their hands. Their relaxed and friendly attitude did as much as their superb musicianship to ensure they were one of the most booked bands on the night. Not bad for a first showcase appearance.

As always happens after a showcase, we take a lot of calls in the two or three days afterwards from couples who needed a little extra time to make up their minds before coming to a decision to finally book one of the bands, and again Strange Bru had to get out their diary and score off more dates.

Bands this good don't take long to get fully booked. So if you were at the showcase and still haven't booked or you're just looking for a superb wedding band in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayshire or Lanarkshire get on the phone or email us straight away and hire Strange Bru at their direct price while you still can.
