Sound Advice


Sound Advice is a band you can rely on to do two things - fill a dance floor and provide a completely professional service.

This means you'll hear well crafted songs performed to a very high standard to suit almost any audience, played at a sensible volume by a band who value their hard won reputation for reliability.


The secret weapon in the Sound Advice armoury is undoubtedly the vocals of lead singer Claire Freeland. Listen for yourself by clicking on the demos to your right. Have a look at the sample set list and you'll see an enormously varied set of songs from Plan B to Karen Carpenter.
Claire from the band says "We are delighted to be working with Hire A Band again. We value the way they deal with our clients so efficiently and with such a pleasant and friendly approach. They make our job that much easier by allowing us to focus on what we do best - entertaining our customers. I hope you contact Hire A Band today and ask about Sound Advice - it's the best advice I can give you."
The Sound Advice band are based in South Lanarkshire but are available to hire in Glasgow and across the country today. Wedding entertainment and its most fun!

John & I cant thank Sound Advice enough for their fantastic evening. Claire and the boys were fantastic, our guests are still talking about how great they were. Claires voice is simply amazing, I managed to get a quick chat with the band during their break and they couldnt have been genuinly nicer, no request was left unanswered.

Sound Advice are an excellent band which went down very well with our guests. They have a great sound, a fantastic vocalist and a good repertoire. I am being asked already if I can book them for next year's event. The service from Hireaband, who we have now been using for 6 years, is excellent too.Ian Anderson - Scottish Association of

To Claire & the Sound Advice Team, Ted and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you for providing such an amazing atmosphere at our event for Kate & Jamie?s wedding on 24 July. All the guests have complimented the band on how great you guys are and in particular your voice Claire- gosh you can really belt out those notes! Thank you so much for making their day so memorable for all of us. Big Hugs Ted & Lesley (Scottish Wedding Directory)

Dear Claire & Pat Where do I start? WOW, WOW and more WOW!!!! You guys were absolutely fantastic at our wedding! My husband and I met you at a wedding fair and I was adamant before we went that we were just going to have a DJ for our reception. We met you both however and you asked if we had a band for our wedding. I told you I wasn't sure abuot a band and that we were just going to have a DJ. You planted doubts in my head from the start as you were both so lovely and Clare, you have such an infectious smile and bubbly personality - I defy anyone to not love you upon first meeting you! You gave me your CD and said with a big smile, have a listen to that and then come back to book us. You didn't say it with arrogance, you said it with confidence - big difference. We spent another couple of hours at the fair and left towards the end. On the way home we remembered about the CD and played it. We were instantly bowled over by your voice. We loved it! That swung it for me and we decided to book you. We came to see you at one of the band showcases too and heard you play live. You were even better again! We spent some time talking to you both and by the end of the night it felt like we were friends. You were both professional, yet very friendly and a real joy to deal with. We had full confidence in you and could sit back knowing that our reception entertainment was in good hands. You arrived in plenty of time before the reception began and were set up before our guests arrived. I was so excited about having Sound Advice play at the wedding and couldn't wait to hear you again. You sang our first dance song just beautifully and the rest of the reception went perfectly too. When we could get away from chatting to our guests we were up on the dance floor as much as possible. I had an absolute ball dancing with my bridesmaids too. I'll never forget your rendition of We've Only Just Begun too. It was just amazing. It's hard to describe in words just how fantastic you guys are as it's not just the singing and talent that makes you fabulous, but your personalities and 'the banter'; it's a complete package. I would recommend Sound Advice to anybody needing a band as their function will surely be a guaranteed success as a result. All of our guests were coming up to us all night talking about how amazing the band are and indeed, they're still talking about you guys now - nearly 5 weeks later. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day perfect! love Lynne & John Kerr PS All of the stuff written above is straight from the heart - you guys were just amazing and I am so glad we met you. We will definitely book you for any other party events in our lives and we will never forget you. Please feel free to use any or all of the above for a testimonial. PPS - we don't have our photos yet, but if we see any good ones of you we will send them by e-mail. We love Sound Advice!!!! xxx love Lynne & John Kerr

Hiya We wanted to drop you a wee belated email to thank you for playing at our wedding reception at Dunblane Hydro back on 5th September and we're sorry we didn't get an opportunity to speak to you on the night.

If anybody we know is looking to hire a band for a function, we would have no hesitation in recommending you. Many thanks again. Best Wishes Robert and Pauline Douglas

Hiya guys, How are you all? We are home from honeymoon and have settled well into married life! I just had to contact you all and say thank you so much for making our evening reception so special and having everyone on the dance floor all night! People are still calling/texting me saying how amazing you all are and that Claire is a fab singer (which we already knew!) I wouldn't have wanted any other band and you made our night for us. I hope you don't mind but I have nominated you on the VOW awards, I just had to. You are fantastic. Thanks so much again. Hayley and Maurice Neary

You did and amazing job and we can't thank you enough! Hope to speak to you soon, promise not for another wedding of mine tho!!!! Thanks again. Sharon (Mrs Nevans)

Dear Claire This is just a quick email to Thank You for giving an amazing performance for the wedding of my daughter Tina and her husband Elliot. You were fantastic as were the rest of the band. Tina especially wanted to thank you for helping to make her day very special, as you will not be aware tina has been battling cancer for the past two years and wanted to make sure everyone had a brilliant night, and you made sure they did with the fantastic performance. Many thanks. I wish you well in the future which i'm sure you don't need with a voice like yours. I have passed you group on to many people at the wedding who just loved it. Again thank you Kindest Regards Mrs Jackie Gallagher

Hi Claire Hope you had a great holiday. Just a quick email to thank you and the boys for playing our wedding on 18th October. You made sure it was a great night.

I have passed your details on to a few who were there and have no hesitation in recommending you to others. All the best. Helen & Kenny

Hi Claire Just to say a huge thank you to you and the guys for playing at our wedding on 26th September! All the guests commented on how great you were and the choice of songs were exactly right.

Hi guys, Craig and I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding at New Lanark Mill Hotel on 19th July. We had an absolute ball and I wasn't off the dance floor the whole evening! We, and all our guests, loved the variety of music you played and the quality was brilliant. Everyone has commented on how great you were and I've already recommended you to a few newly engaged couples who have taken a note of your details - so hopefully you'll hear from them. I couldn't have asked for a better evening which was mainly down to you - thank you so much for helping to make our wedding reception so fantastic. Take care. Jacqueline and Craig Robertson

Sound Advice

Dear Claire & ?Boys? We are writing to thank you for the most wonderful job that you did on our wedding. Your choice of music, attitude and, of course, musical talent was absolutely perfect. So many of our guests commented, during and after the evening, about how good you sounded. Your dealings with my constant questioning was also very much appreciated and highlighted your professionalism even more. I hope that you will drop a wee email every now and again because I have no doubt we will see you again- you?re too good to have anyone else play now! Thanks again and take care. Janice & Steven Tracy

Mitch and I wanted to email to say thanks for being such a brilliant band at our wedding on the 7th June. We had an absolute ball, best day of our lives and I wanted to thank you for being a part of that and getting everyone up out of their seats and dancing. Loads of people commented on how good you were, and I'm so glad that you were the band that we chose for our wedding. You read the audience so well and I can't remember any time when the dancefloor wasn't full to bursting. Right from learning our dance, 'Nothings Gonna Stop Us Now', to the Scottish Country Dancing Set (which was just such a laugh!), to wee Jade singing 'It's a hard knock life' to the very last song, you made the night for us - music and dancing is so important to us, so I'm so glad we picked you guys. Your relaxed, yet professional approach fitted perfectly with our day. Hopefully, we'll have the pleasure of seeing you guys perform again one day in the future - if we ever have a big party where we need a band, you'll be getting a call! Juliette & Mitch (Mr & Mrs Wells!)

Sound Advice

Just a quick email to say how much we appreciate the set you played at our wedding. The guests were unanimous in their praise for you. For Jane and I the highlight was your rendition of "Ti sposero per che". The fact that you learnt the song especially for us, played it beautifully and sung it in Italian was far beyond our expectations. When we next need a band, you are top of our list! Regards Neil Guthrie

Sound Advice

Now that the honeymoon is over and everything is back to normal, David and I want to thank you so much for performing at our wedding. I can?t think of a time when the dance floor wasn?t full and every one thought you were amazing. I?m sorry you had to hang about for such a long time before you could get into the room but we appreciate your patience and professionalism. Claire you have such a great singing voice we were gob smacked that we could get someone as good as you to sing at our wedding. Kindest Regards Amy and David
