Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re proud to present to you the much anticipated Scottish based SuperGroup, Carlyle.


Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re proud to present to you the much anticipated Scottish based SuperGroup, Carlyle.


Fronted by, in the opinion of many people including ours, the best male vocalist in the UK,  Crawford Carlyle and backed up by probably the only musicians in the country equal to the task, Gordon White on bass (Dignan, Dowell & White – Elwood), Kenny Irwin on drums (Mojo Switch – Roadhouse – Watershed – Engine), Gary O’Hagan on keys (Red Hot Chilli Pipers – Steve McRorie – Raintown) and last but by no means least Robert Jones on guitars (Heavy Load) – this is the antidote to boy band oblivion and middle of the road wedding band wishy washyness.

When you have Carlyle roll up for your wedding or event you’ve put yourself in the hands of a vastly experienced, hugely talented rock and roll juggernaut.  If you’re looking for a standard wedding band, this ain’t it. This is a band that plays at weddings (and you won’t regret booking them for a second) but mainly for the sheer love of great music.

If the atmosphere at your wedding is important to you, if you want yours to stand out from every other wedding you’ve ever been at, if you love music and have incredibly high standards then there’s no need for second thoughts, just book Carlyle. If you're lucky, they may still be available.

So here’s the band you’ve been waiting for. The best way we know to entertain and enthrall your guests whether it’s at a wedding, private function or corporate do – the UK’s first authentic covers band SuperGroup – the one, the only Carlyle.

If you listen to the demos and watch the videos then you won’t need any further convincing that this is the MUST HAVE band for your wedding or next event.

If you'd like to learn more about this band or enquire about hiring them for your event call us on 0800 612 3320 or email and one of our event experts will be in touch!

I can’t thank the band enough! The dance floor was full from start to finish! So many guest couldn’t believe how amazing they were! I really hope to hear them again!


From the beginning, Hire a Band were absolutely brilliant, so helpful and made sure we got the band we wanted...who did not disappoint!
I cannot praise Carlyle enough, they were absolutely AMAZING! Everyone at our wedding said they were the best wedding band they'd ever heard, the dance floor was full the whole night, I think I left the dance floor twice! I had to keep checking that Crawford was singing because he was so amazing, he sounded like a recorded track, what a voice that man has, he can literally sing anything and blows you away while doing it, incredible! My only advice to any brides hiring in the future is...get your trainers on because you will not want to sit down! We can't thank the Carlyle boys enough for coming all the way to Campbeltown for us, you made our night, such a lovely bunch of guys!


Carlyle - Excellent band and I would recommend them to anyone who needed a band for an event or wedding. All wedding guests said the same. Can't thank the guys enough.


Well, where do we begin?!

You guys were outstanding!

We are over the moon with how our evening went. It was such an amazing atmosphere and we have you to thank for that.

Every song was a hit with the crowd and you played so many of our favourites. Including Foo Fighters (although Steven nearly missed it!!), which was just amazing of you. When you played Erasure and everyone took the floor, we had a moment looking at everyone enjoying themselves and I'm so glad we captured the happiness on everyone's faces.

So many guests commented on you guys and asked your name so you've created a great impression.

Thanks again for making a long awaited celebration absolutely worth it.

Jennifer and Steven


Carlyle were amazing! Had the dance floor filled all night and were so amazing to learn our first dance song!
Thank you so much for a great night !


To say you were outstanding wouldn’t do it justice! Your voice and your band are phenomenal! We had so many of our guests comment on what an incredible band we had. You had everyone up dancing and the smiles on their faces in the photos say it all. Choosing the right band was probably the most important thing to us for our wedding and you exceeded expectations. The fact you played 1 more song at the very end made the night complete too!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are all amazing and we hope to see you play again sometime soon!


The service we received from head office and the band was nothing short of outstanding, would definitely recommend to a friend. With respect to the band, guests are still talking about how entertaining they were.

Thank you once again!


Thank you Hireaband and Carlyle for helping to make our wedding reception everything we hoped for!

Hireaband have been fantastic throughout, including helping us deal with two postponements due to Covid. Everyone we've spoken with has been really helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend using Hireaband to book your wedding entertainment!

The band, Carlyle, were absolutely incredible and so talented. Their delivery of our first dance song was so perfect, I wish I could listen to it over and over. They read the crowd well and had people on the dancefloor all night long. I can't tell you how many of our guests commented on how great they were and how much they'd enjoyed the music.

Thank you again!
Laura and Kyle


Crawford, and the entire Carlyle band, were amazing from the communication leading up to my wedding and on the night. Every guest raved about them, and the dancefloor was never empty! We can’t thank them enough for being so brilliant and the perfect band with exceptional voices.


Carlyle were absolutely amazing from start to finish! The dance floor was packed constantly and the music was unbelievable. So many people asked where we had heard of Carlyle!


Just a massive thank you to you guys for playing on our special day at The Quay! You were absolutely amazing from start to finish and the dance floor was always packed. Everyone has been saying how fab you guys are and asking how we heard of you! Ryan and I had the best day/night and I walked to the Apex barefoot as my feet were so sore with all the dancing!


Can I just say how phenomenal our band were. From beginning to end they were fantastic. My phone has not stopped since with messages about them, they really were a huge part of making our day everything we dreamed of.

We can’t thank them enough

We can only hope we see them again in the near future

We hired Carlyle for our wedding through Hireband and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Gaye at Hireband was extremely helpful in getting everything sorted for us. The band were absolutely fantastic! They filled the dance floor with good vibes and got everyone dancing. We had so many great comments from our guests, they really made the party!


Carlyle played at our wedding at the weekend and we could not have wished for a better band! The dancefloor was almost always full and we had so many guests ask for the name of the band and where we found them as they want them to perform at future events.
Crawford is a great guy with an outstanding voice, there can't be many songs he isn't able to sing. The band learned our first dance song from scratch with only a weeks notice and absolutely nailed it.
If you are unsure whether to hire Carlyle for your wedding or event, stop wondering and go for it, you will not regret it!
Thanks again guys for a great night!


We booked Carlyle for our wedding and they exceeded our already high expectations. Everyone was on the dance floor all night with constant great songs and performances. Two of our guests were so impressed they are trying to book Carlyle for their own wedding. Thank you so much Hireaband for the excellent service and Carlyle for a night we'll never forget.


Carlyle were fantastic, very friendly bunch and they played brilliantly. The guests were all blown away, thank you for being a part of our special day!


Hope you are well. We just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding - the guests were blown away! We had a brilliant day and thank you to all of you guys for being a part of it!


Thanks sooo much for playing for us on Saturday night. It was more like being at a concert than a Christmas party night. We couldn’t believe the reaction from the audience, we’ve never seen anything like it. We’ve already been on to Hireaband and booked you again for next year ! See you then !


Wow – we weren’t expecting that!! When we found you online we were so excited to have found you, but the actual performance was unbelievable.The dance floor was packed all night and they even took requests from some of our guests. An amazing end to a perfect day! Thanks again guys


We just didn’t believe we’d ever find a band like Carlyle. To say we were blown away is an understatement. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone asked us where we’d found you. I think we’ll be seeing you again at all our friends weddings! Thanks so much guys.
