Since 2009, Northern Star have enjoyed success at a level way beyond most covers bands. There are a number of factors that contribute to that success; obviously there's a really high standard of musicianship - that's a given, but there's a lot more to success in our industry than just being able to play well.  Unusually for covers bands , Northern Star work as full time musicians. That means they have the time and the incentive to perfect what they do to a level that far exceeds many of the other bands out there.

It also means you'll get a professional, reliable but fun to deal with attitude from some of the nicest people in the business.

Here's what you can expect when you book Northern Star (the most positively reviewed band on the Scottish Wedding Directory by the way);

  • Full time professional band
  • Outstanding value for money with very competitive pricing and little or no additional costs for travel across the central belt and Ayrshire
  • The very best in equipment - the band constantly reinvest in expensive sound and lighting
  • Reliable transport - the best band in the world are no use to you if they can't get to your venue
  • Fully insured for up to £10million - this is a requirement of most venues these days
  • Able to work within the constraints of sound limiters
  • A huge repertoire of songs - there's nothing they can't play and that includes -
  • A lively ceilidh set - you can even add a fifth musician playing accordion for a small increase in fee - giving you two bands in one
  • The boys will learn your first dance if it's humanly possible and given a minimum of 8 week's notice
  • Limited opportunities to see the band live - contact us for more info
  • A DJ option (at additional cost) to give your event even more flexibility
  • A brass section option (at additional cost) to really add visual and aural impact - a very popular option this

Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you & the band for a fantastic evening last night at the wedding. The band were fabulous, the dance floor was constantly busy & ceilidh set was amazing. All our guests had a wonderful time & complimented how good you were.

Just wanted to message to pass on our thanks to the guys that played our wedding on Friday night at Lochside. They were awesome, the dance floor was packed and everyone had a great night. Thanks for everything.

Just wanted to drop you a message before I head off on honeymoon to thank you for organising everything with the band. They were amazing and went down an absolute storm!
Thanks for organising the last minute first dance music too. I’m glad we changed to have a dance cos it was such a lovely moment and we were surprised how many people got on the dance floor with us to Metallica!
Please do pass on our thanks to the boys, we had so many comments about how fabulous the music was and the dance floor was rarely empty.

Northern Star

I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much to the band for making our wedding reception so enjoyable. Everyone has been raving about them since and having a mosh pit at our wedding made our day haha. Don't think the dance floor was empty once. Is there anywhere we can leave a review for the band. Thank you again so much.

Northern Star

Can you pass on our thanks to the band for Saturday. It was a great night of music and the party got started right from their first song. We had so many people coming up to us complementing the band. Thanks once again!

Northern Star

Thank you! Your band were fantastic and all the parents at the Ball have been raving about how incredible they were! Parents have been talking about the skill of the musicians, the way they transitioned between songs, the way they “read” the crowd and kept everyone dancing, the energy and fun they brought to the whole evening. They really made the evening into a very special celebration.
Any chance you’re free Friday 7th June 2018?! We’d love to get you in the diary now! I have had so many people ask if you can come back next year and bring your ceilidh player!

Northern Star

Many thanks to the band for a fantastic evening. They read the room brilliantly and created such a wonderful atmosphere all the way through the night.
My wife was on the dance floor all night, she was enjoying herself so much.
Lots of people commented on how great the music was and that you were the best wedding band they had heard.
We will definitely be recommending you to anyone who will listen.

Northern Star

I just wanted to drop you guys an email to say thank you all so much for helping to make our wedding absolutely amazing!
We’d already had a fantastic day and I didn’t think it could get any better but it did!
So many people have said you guys are the best band they’ve ever seen at a wedding and me & my husband completely agree. We had so much fun at our reception as did all our guests. Having a full dance-floor night was the best!!
