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.
