The Kuil represent the very best Scotland has to offer. Unique, talented, experienced and professional - you simply can't go wrong!


When these guys put their band together eight years ago, they knew they had to do something different to stand out, to be noticed. They’ve worked incredibly hard since their inception, working their way up through the pubs and clubs circuit, honing their skills as musicians and performers to the expert entertainers they are today. The Kuil don’t claim to be reinventing the wheel though, their set list will keep your dancefloor filled all night long with instantly recognisable hits, and they’ve got something for everyone, each song chosen in the heat of the moment by reading the room, not just a set list. That’s to be expected when booking a quality band. What you might not expect is that Shawn, the band’s charismatic lead vocalist, delivers their electric list of floor fillers in a gentle Scots twang. He knows just how to work the crowd too, often taking advantage of his radio mic and getting right in the thick of the action, building a great party atmosphere. Couple all this with the band’s capability to deliver 100% live 5-part-harmonies AND outstanding musicianship and you’ve got The Kuil’s very own formula for a fantastic night’s entertainment.

So, there you have it; a quality band of first-class entertainers with all the hits needed to fill any dancefloor, heavy investment in the best possible sound and lighting equipment, a thoroughly friendly and professional attitude and of course, those unique vocals.

Check out the band’s reviews and see them in action in their videos. Rest assured that if you’re booking these guys, you’re getting great value for money and a top-class band to put a unique stamp on your event.

The Kuil

Full marks for both The Kuil and Hireaband. 5 star service.

The Kuil

Firstly Hireaband kept in regular contact and forwarded all details and confirmed every part of the booking from beginning to end, I cannot fault this and would not hesitate to recommend using hireaband or in using them for future functions.

The band, The Kuil, were top notch from beginning to end. They were in contact to get details of the venue who they then contacted to make arrangements, they had no problems with our first dance request, which was performed magnificently, and arrived early and played as long or longer than they had said.
Having seen them at my friends wedding last year we knew what we were getting and if anything they were even better !!! Setting up and packing up was so slick it went largely unnoticed you can tell that they are a well oiled machine. Performance was awesome !! A cracking mix of contemporary and older tunes with excellent vocals and tight musical performance, this was commented on by many of the guests.
Truely the icing on the cake and one of the highlights of a great day, the only thing that I would say is that for guys who are this professional and slick they probably do not charge enough !!

Top class all round, we are truly impressed with everything which we received. Thanks to hire a band and The Kuil take a bow.

The Kuil

The Kuill provided top class entertainment from the very start. Great set list, great sound and vocals and kept the night going for my wife’s 60th birthday party. Covered a huge selection of music that had our family and friends dancing all night. Loads of guests commented on how good they were. Couldn’t fault the guys, and they wrapped up the night with our requested last song. Brilliant band, defo recommend.

The Kuil

Amazing! Couldn’t have asked for a better band for our special day. I was hardly off the dance floor! Thank you! Emma.

The Kuil

Kuil were tremendous.From start to finish the dance floor was full. They certainly made our event .
We would recommend them without doubt.Very good communication as well and helpful.
Also …… great communication from Hireaband . Would definitely use again

The Kuil

You guys are simply amazing. Thank you so much for a fantastic night of entertainment!

The Kuil

The band were amazing. Probably the best band I've heard. A great variety of songs to cater for every age and taste.

The Kuil

The Kuil were absolutely outstanding and went above and beyond for our day! They learned our first dance song and initially said they were prioritising learning first dances and so would need to play our dad & daughter dance from a recording which was completely understandable. A few days before our wedding I received a text from a band member that they had found time to learn it and would play it live and it was amazing! The dancefloor was full all night and everyone commented on how amazing there were. For what we paid the performance was just outstanding and I cannot recommend them enough! If you are thinking of a band, the Kuil are the ones to book!!!

The Kuil

The Kuil were fabulous entertainers/musician's, we had the best night. Thanks again

The Kuil

Wow! Where do I start? From the first email where hireaband were very patient and helpful to the band getting in touch to make sure all the finer details were sorted, we were blown away. Nothing was too much of a hassle and the band paid particular attention to detail, learning about our club/event before they turned up. The dance floor was never empty all night - they certainly do know how to keep everyone on their feet. Makes a huge difference having a band that you know is interested in being at your event. Will 100% recommend.

The Kuil

Wow you guys were had the place rocking! Great night!

The Kuil

We had an amazing night you we’re absolutely fantastic interacting with the crowd and was able to make everybody of all ages have a blast. Ayr Racecourse need you back, by far the best entertainment.

The Kuil

We can't thank the Kuil enough for playing at our wedding! Everyone enjoyed the ceilidh and the band were absolutely everything we wanted and more-really got everyone involved in the party! We would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a band that gets the whole crowd involved!

The Kuil

Thanks so much guys, we had the best day and night and you were fantastic!

The Kuil

You were absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much for making my daughter and son in law’s wedding so special. They chose well!!! Would (and will!) recommend you without hesitation.

The Kuil

The best night! Thank you so much for being so great, everyone loved you guys!!!

The Kuil

We booked The Kuil for our wedding after hearing them play at Brewhemia in Edinburgh and we were not disappointed! I spoke with Maurice in the build up to the wedding and they learned our first dance, which went down a storm. Everyone was on the dancefloor the whole time they were playing, we especially loved the 30 minute mash-up! They are really up for a party! We have had so many friends and family asking about The Kuil and I'm really hoping we'll get the chance to see them at another wedding soon! Until then we'll be back at Brewhemia to see the guys filling the dance floor with all our friends! Great job guys, and thank you so much for making the journey all the way to John O Groats for us! Iain and Liza.

The Kuil

You were out of this world!! Had everyone on their feet all night! You will certainly be recommended and very well remembered!

The Kuil

The Kuil played our wedding at Dalhousie Castle on the 30th April 2022 and to say they were amazing is an understatement. The dancefloor was never emplty and they were able to take requests. They listened to everything we had asked for and made our reception just fantastic! Everyone has said to us how amazing the wedding was and how much fun they had, best band the had heard in a while. Even managed a few Cielidh tunes. Thanks guys for a truly memorable night.

The Kuil

The Kuil were an amazing band. Every one of our wedding guests commented on how amazing they were!

I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding reception into the true celebration we wanted.

The Kuil

The Kuil were absolutely incredible! Such a well run and rehearsed band. The songs were tight, lively and full of energy. Great covers and they even did a few requests that went down a storm.

The Kuil are definitely a band that will blow you and your guests away. Nothing cheesy or traditional about this wedding band. Rock on guys!

The Kuil

Hireaband were fantastic throughout the pandemic. They changed our date with ease and were very helpful.

I would highly recommend booking The Kuil. The music they played was fantastic and got all of our guests up dancing! They were also very nice and polite to speak to. They learned our first dance song and although it was not their usual type of music, they did an amazing job.

The Kuil

The searching & booking process was very simple & easy for us to do. We decided very last minute we wanted a band as restrictions were set to lift & it was the best decision we made.
The Kuil were fantastic our guests absolutely loved them & have been talking about it since.
Totally made our wedding for us!

The Kuil

The dance floor was never empty. Enough said. Couldn't recommend these guys highly enough.

The Kuil

We booked The Kuil for our end of year university ball and they played a big part in what was an amazing night. The dance floor was filled the full night and they were very flexible with their set by playing a great range of songs, which suited our younger age group, and ceilidh dances. I was very impressed not only by their sound but professionalism. Throughout the organisation of the event they were so easy to contact and happy to take song requests and any other questions we had to make sure that the event went smoothly. Genuine nice guys with a great band, at a great price, would highly recommend!

The Kuil

Thank you guys so much for last night! You were fantastic as usual!! And thanks for letting my grandad join in too!
