Elwood


Elwood is the band of choice for discerning live music lovers and party goers in Scotland. A band as happy performing at weddings or awards ceremonies as they are in late night clubs.

Elwood Wedding Band

Frankly this is as good as it gets.  If you listen to the demos you'll get to hear how good a three piece band can sound. Two great vocals and the classic bass, drums and guitar line up means that you get a band that sounds huge but can fit in to venues with limited space.

The boys in Elwood are musicians of such downright talent that they can perform a vast repertoire of tunes from rock 'n' roll, classic disco and Motown, rock, blues and contemporary floor fillers at an unbeatable standard.

Their experience, enthusiasm and professional approach have led Elwood to be one of the most in demand wedding bands in Scotland.

You can hear both studio and live recordings of the band right here on this page.

Great gear, great tunes, a friendly but professional attitude and a 100% reliability record plus a real knack for keeping dance floors busy wherever they play.  A no brainer really.

Elwood were fantastic and the whole process was easy.

Elwood

"Elwood were absolutely amazing! Had the dance floor full all night!"

Elwood

"Elwood exceeded our expectations - guests have been raving about the band since our wedding.
They were fantastic! "

Elwood played at our wedding at Achnagairn Castle 2 weeks ago and we are so glad we chose them as our band! Living in Australia we had to rely on online demos and what we heard on the demos was what we got (they were actually better in person). They were so easy to deal with and nothing was too much hassle. They learned our first dance which sounded amazing and also worked seamlessly in conjunction with a ceilidh band we had chosen. The dance floor was full all night with everyone praising each member of the band for their different talents. We can't recommend them enough! Thank you guys

Elwood

Thank you so much to Hireaband and Elwood for making our wedding so fun filled and unforgettable. Whilst a few guests told us the highlight of the day was the speeches (!) many said the band. They kept us all dancing till 1am with a massive repertoire of music that kept the floor filled all night long.
The communication in the run up to the day and the professionalism exhibited by everyone was most welcome at such an exciting stressful time. So many of our guests said they were the best wedding. Band, if not band, they had ever heard. We can't wait to get our wedding video back so we can relive it all over again, From the bottom of our hearts thank you for helping us create a day and night everyone will remember.

Elwood

What an amazing band dance floor full all night.

Elwood

An amazing band. We had Elwood for our wedding last weekend and the dance floor was packed all night. Great mix of genres, proper slick live playing and genuinely nice bunch of guys. They also learned a flawless version of our chosen first dance song and generally made the night so special; I lost count of the amount of people complimenting them! Cheers guys!

Elwood

Excellent band. The dance floor was full all night. All my guests commented on how amazing the band were. Definitely made our night.

Elwood

We booked Elwood for our wedding after seeing them perform at a friends wedding. They were amazing and we have had so many comments about how great the band were on the day. From booking, right through to the night itself we were hugely impressed. Thank you so much.

Elwood

We just wanted to send you a message to thank you all so very much for playing at our wedding on 30th December. You guys were fantastic and loads of our guests have been asking who you were - dancefloor was as full as I would have liked it to be (despite the heat in Oran Mor!) We had the best day ever and so did all our guests!

We would recommend you to anyone we knew and wish you all the best for the future!

Elwood

I'm a professional musician myself, and it was absolutely great having a band that were of that high calibre. I wouldn't have been happy with amateurs or a band using sub-standard equipment. These guys were tight, well rehearsed, well sonically balanced and sounded awesome.
I still have wedding guests approaching me and telling me how good the night was and how excellent the band were.
The set list was brilliant, with a huge mix of songs that everyone enjoyed. I got talking to the boys during their break and they offered to play a couple of rockier songs for me, which they did. I was blown away by their version of War Pigs by Black Sabbath, and so were all the other musicians in the room.
They helped to make our wedding the best day of our lives!

Elwood

Elwood were awesome!

Elwood

Hi Guys! Hope you're all good. Thought you might like to see this! Big love for you on the blog. Thanks again so much for making the epic journey down to our wedding. You were fantastic as I knew you would be! We had soooo many comments about you, everyone loved you. People said they kept trying to leave the dance floor and then you'd play another classic so they had to keep on dancing! Thanks and all the best, you deserve every success x

In the evening we booked a band called Elwood – I had discovered them in 2013 whilst on a friend’s hen do in Glasgow! I asked for their business card that night and it has been in that particular handbag ever since. When we started planning the music I just had to find out whether they’d be willing to travel and also not blow the budget! They were happy to go on a road trip and were such good value for money as they played all night with only a brief break for a bacon butty! We had so many comments about them – they were brilliant, the dancefloor was full all night – they played some absolute classics. We couldn’t have been happier to see everyone enjoying it so much.

Elwood

Hi Gordon,
We just wanted to pass on our thanks to you and your band for coming and playing at our wedding on Saturday. Your band are brilliant and you really made it one big party!
We've had loads of people saying how great they thought Elwood was and we've passed on your details to a few folks too, including the Birnam Arts Centre themselves (who knows, you may be back there one day!)
I'm sorry we didn't get to chat more to you on the night but I guess that's probably because we were having such a good time evening!
Anyway, thanks again for helping make it a wedding to remember for so many.

Elwood

We booked Elwood to play at our wedding in August and they were brilliant! Really professional and really fantastic musicians who created a great part atmosphere. We loved the music and so did all our guests - we've had countless people saying how much they enjoyed it and the venue even asked for Elwood's details so they can recommend for future events.
As you an imagine on your wedding day, we struggled to get away and meet the band when they arrived. But Gordon (the frontman) found us and introduced himself which was great. Our only regret is not speaking to the band at the end of the night to thank them personally - we were so busy having a great time! So thank you Elwood for helping make our wedding truly one to remember!

Elwood

Hope you and the boys are well. We have to apologise that We are only getting back to you now but we are only just back from our honeymoon.
We can't thank you enough for playing at our wedding... You were absolutely fantastic! Both sets of parents and countless guests have commented on how fabulous a band you are.
You did an amazing job of singing our first dance song and thank you so much for playing the other song for dad and I.
We came to see you all playing at Arta last year and thought that you were great but you really were fantastic at our wedding and we cannot thank you all enough. We will definitely recommend you to others in the future.

Elwood

All our guests commented on how great the band (Elwood) looked and sounded. The lads worked their socks off playing one great track after another. The 1/2 hour ceilidh went down a storm with our guests, most of which had never experienced such fun, and mayhem at times; It really lifted the dance floor.
Elwood are totally professional, polite and sound great. I recommend them to anyone looking for a great live band.

Elwood

The band were excellent in all categories. They kept my guests dancing right to the end, everyone has since commented on how great they were. Would highly recommend them!

Elwood

We we very much impressed with the quality and professionalism of Hire A Band, managers of THE ELWOOD BAND We simply can not express how impressed we were with The ELWOOD BAND.Brian, Scott and Gordon were simply brilliant from beginning to end. They fit right in and felt like family. They established an amazing connection with ourselves and guests. We were able to contact the band in advance to organise the entertainment for our event. Nothing was ever too much to handle. They out did themselves by learning traditional Jewish songs and sung in Hebrew at our son's Bar Mitzvah. They had an incredible repertory of music that got everyone up on the dance floor. ELWOOD BAND allowed my son and guests to play the guitar and bagpipes. They accompanied every moment with great kindness and talent. Music is key to a successful event. The ELWOOD BAND were simply amazing and we had the most memorable time.We wish them much continued success and recommend them highly.

Elwood

Elwood were fabulous! Thanks to the guys for a great set :)

Elwood

Natalie and I just wanted to send you a big thank you for our wedding on Sunday night. Almost every single guest told us how fabulous the music was. The fact that the dance floor was never empty said it all. You did an amazing job of our first dance song and the father of the bride song. We would and will be recommending you to anyone who asks in the future. Hope to see you at a future event some day soon.

Elwood

We'd just like to say a massive thanks to Elwood for playing at our wedding. They were amazing! We've had so many brilliant comments from guests on the band and I think the guys would hopefully have noticed how well they were received on the night as the dance floor was packed!! The music choices were all pitched perfectly to get our guests up dancing all night. We went for the Coldplay original for our first dance but the boys Queen "your my best friend" for our 2nd dance was perfect! My dad's a massive Queen fan & loved the version for our daughter/ father dance. We've already been asked for details as a couple of our friends are getting married in the next year or so. Thanks so much.

Elwood

Elwood were absolutely amazing. The dance floor was never empty and all of our friends and family commented on how great they were. The variety of music they played was great something for everyone. The atmosphere at our evening reception was brilliant. Would highly recommend them. My legs were so sore on the Sunday from all the dancing. Loved them!

Elwood

Following our wedding in New York, Elwood performed at our reception on 4th July in the Alona hotel. They performed John Mayer's version of XO for our 1st dance without it being an issue & keeping with the American theme dedicated Sinatra's New York New York to my husband & I which went down a treat with the guests. We had a ball & our guests did too & we have nothing but praise for this band. Thank you for making it a cracking night & keeping the dance floor packed.

Elwood

So pleased with our choice of band. They were fantastic and all out guests commented on how good they were. Thanks to everyone.
