Reviews

Borrowed Blues

We had nothing but positive feedback from our guests about the band. Tone of the music, volume, timekeeping, everything 100 % spot on. The lead Alex is so chill and so friendly, the whole process was very smooth. We even hear on the grapevine that the venue asked them for some cards and would recommend them to future wedding parties, as they were the best band they had had in the hotel! To any couples looking through this, if your budget can fit Borrowed Blues, just do it. I promise you won't regret it.

Borrowed Blues

The Borrowed Blues were absolutely brilliant, it was the best decision we made to have a band at our wedding. We cut our guestlist down due to covid and weren't sure if we needed a band but we went for it and do not regret it one bit!! They got everyone up dancing the whole night, the dance floor was never empty and we had so many compliments about the music! I would highly recommend them :)
Thank you for making our evening so much fun!

Borrowed Blues

The band were INCREDIBLE!! So so many people have said Borrowed Blues were the best wedding band they’d ever heard - even better than their own band!
The music was amazing from start to finish. Our first dance hadn’t been played by the band before but they learned it no problem and it was absolutely perfect.
This was our third wedding date thanks to covid and I’m so glad it worked out this way so we could find this band! They are amazing!
The band were so chilled out and really easy to get in touch with.
A massive thank you for making our wedding a party to remember!

Borrowed Blues

The Borrowed Blues were simply amazing. They took the time to learn two new songs to make our day even more special than it was.The comments we received from our guests just showed us how fab they actually were. Could not recommend them enough!

Borrowed Blues

Thank you Borrowed Blues. We loved your performance and can’t thank you enough for learning our first dance song. We had so many great comments about your performance.

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were absolutely fantastic. So professional, full of energy, very talented and a total pleasure to deal to with. We had so many comments about how great they were from the guests. The father of the groom said they were the best wedding band he'd ever heard!

Thanks so much to Alex & all. You brought the party for sure!!

Borrowed Blues

The Borrowed Blues were absolutely incredible. Professional from start to finish, and just lovely people as well! They accommodated our requests cheerfully and willingly, and they went that extra mile to make our night special. The music they played was nothing short of outstanding - real musicians with real talent. From the very first song the guests were up on the dance floor, and they continued to dance all the way through as the music was too good to just sit down to. We loved every minute and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Amazing!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues we're so good! We took the chance on hiring a band we hadn't seen in person but we totally lucked out - we couldn't have wished for a more professional, friendly or talented group for the wedding. The dancefloor was really busy through their whole set and we had a few guests who took a note of the band name for possible future bookings.

Borrowed Blues

Absolutely loved the Borrowed Blues. Everyone at our wedding said it's the best wedding band they've seen. We would recommend them over and over. Superb bunch of guys and amazing musicians!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were fantastic performers and all of our guests complimented us on our choice of band. We especially loved the version of our first dance, which was very special to us. What a cover!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were 10/10 smash hits on our wedding day! Everyone loved them! We've never seen a dancefloor at a wedding be packed from start to finish, and that is 100% down to the guys being so brilliant. Special thanks to the guys for learning our first dance song, as well as our fave Springsteen tune - they knocked both out of the park. We'll be keeping an eye on any gigs they do in Scotland, as we're keen to come along as fans!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were sensational. We couldn’t have wished for a better band, they were the biz! Soulful, exceptionally talented and oozed stage presence. They captivated our audience for the whole set. Book them now! You won’t be disappointed!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were everything we wanted for our wedding and more! They are exceptional musicians and entertainers and all of our guests were blown away by their performance. Alex and the band made it a totally unforgettable night. We can't thank them enough!

Thanks for an amazing night! All our friends and family commented on how great the music was. Good luck with the new wee baby!! Cheers, Jane!

Borrowed Blues

Sorry for the late feedback!!

Borrowed Blues were absolutely amazing, people are still talking about how talented they were.

We hope they all managed to get home safely, I know they had a problem with their van getting stuck.

Would love to see them again. Absolutely brilliant!

Borrowed Blues

Fantastic performers. So many positive comments from people attending. Excellent!!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues are the best wedding band going!
They were absolutely fantastic at our wedding on 02/11/2019 and we have had endless compliments from every single wedding guest about them, so many people have asked for the name and how to book for their own weddings/events! The dance floor was never empty and they definitely know how to keep a party going!
As well as being so talented, the band was so great with being in touch beforehand to discuss learning a song for our first dance, which they were amazing at!
Cannot recommend them enough!

Borrowed Blues

Excellent communication with Hireaband staff. First-class!
Borrowed Blues band are AMAZING !!! The dance floor at our wedding was never empty and everyone loved them!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were amazing. They did an amazing cover of our first dance song as well as learning 2 other songs by our favourite artists. They had everyone on the dance floor and we have been told multiple times by our guests how amazing they were. Couldn’t have asked for a better band.

Borrowed Blues


Very impressed with the band, excellent musicians and a great catalogue off songs. Made the night for everyone there, would definitely recommend in the future.

Borrowed Blues

I had hoped for a good band to play for us at West on the Green. Imagine our delight when the best band I had ever seen rocked up and were playing at *our* wedding.
The first dance was incredible, followed by some of our all-time favourite songs.
We couldn't have asked for a better set, nor could we have had a friendlier group of guys.
Absolutely outstanding! ☆☆☆☆☆

Borrowed Blues

Thank you all for a great night, everyone commented on how good you were and were asking how I found you. Don't Look Back in Anger sounded perfect!

You really made the night for me, thank you!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were great. They did a fantastic version of an Elvis song for our first dance and then kept the bride, friends and family on the dance floor all night. The ceilidh was a blast and so much fun for all.

The staff in the office where always a great help be it on the phone or via email. A special mention for Julie who helped me out the day before the wedding when I was in a flat spin over the booking!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues are with out doubt the best wedding band in Scotland, They make every song there own and keep everyone up on dance floor from start to finish, absolutely loved having them as our wedding band and would recommend them highly to anyone thinking of having them.

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues are an amazing band, I would highly recommend them! We had such a great time at our wedding, they definitely know how to get people up and dancing! We had so many people say that they were the best band they'd heard at a wedding, different from the norm with something for everyone. They did a great job learning the song we wanted for our first dance, it sounded fantastic and a real highlight was S.O.B!

Borrowed Blues

Great service from Hireaband as always, and Borrowed Blues were a fantastic band!

Borrowed Blues

The band were perfect! Everything about them was everything we wanted. They were fun to chat to on their break, they indulged my nephew with letting him play a song with them (on the drums) and quite honestly, the dance floor was so busy all night, because they were so good, we had more drinks left over at the end than we thought we would.

Alex and the Borrowed Blues were brilliant, I couldn't recommend them more!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues went far beyond all expectations for us. Their attitude and professionalism throughout the process was fantastic and their performance on the night was superb. I lost count of the number of guests who said they were the best band they've seen play at a wedding.

Borrowed Blues

You need to book this band! They played the style of music we wanted all night and the guests loved them. They were polite and friendly, and on time. We looked for a long time trying to find a wedding band but they were all 'run of the mill' bands, then we found Borrowed Blues! If you want something a bit different and special then look no further. These guys are the business!

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were fantastic! They even kept the party going when we had a short power cut. Can’t thank them enough for a great night and all the guests loved them to.

Borrowed Blues

Borrowed Blues were a pleasure to work with and their music was outstanding with some very different songs which everyone loved. The dance floor was packed all night long.
