Sound Cradle


Sound Cradle, a sensational Scottish wedding and function band from Fabulous Falkirk. Simply outstanding.

Sound Cradle - Wedding Bands Scotland

Your function or wedding entertainment should be put in the hands of experienced and talented performers who put your satisfaction and enjoyment at the centre of their approach. That's exactly what you get when you hire Sound Cradle - for a number of years, one of the most respected and in demand party bands in Scotland.

Because of their popularity, they've performed in almost every good quality hotel and event venue in Scotland. Just let us know and we'll confirm whether or not they know your venue of choice.  It's a big advantage when your band knows your venue - inside information on how best to get a great sound, whether or not there are sound limiters installed (and how to work with them) and even how long it takes to get set up due to access difficulties etc - this can all make your event go more smoothly.

The band boasts very tight four part harmonies and completely live virtuoso musical performances from four great musicians on drums, keyboards, bass and guitar. Their repertoire spans six decades - there really is something for everyone. Couple all this with four pleasant, professional, well mannered guys and you have all you need to guarantee a wonderful night's entertainment.

As well as great covers of classic and current hits, the band also provide a blistering live ceilidh set.  They'll "call" the dances too, so if your Gay Gordons is a bit rusty or your not sure how to Strip the Willow, the boys will sort you out.

Although the band take what they do very seriously, they're well know for having fun on stage, which is exactly what you need to create a party atmosphere. The lads have been friends for years and it really comes across.

Sound Cradle

We hired Sound Cradle for our wedding and they were phenomenal. My wedding guests are still talking about them to this day!

Sound Cradle

Sound Cradle were excellent, they played a wide variety of music and when asked by a group of 8 year olds if they could perform a song from Annie they were more than happy to oblige which made their night.

Sound Cradle

We hired Sound Cradle for our wedding and they were absolutely fantastic we couldn't have asked for any better. They did our first dance amazingly well (Bob Dylan's version of Make you feel my love) which pleased my new wife no end as she is a massive fan. They played a great mix throughout the night and really tuned in to what our guests liked, would thoroughly recommend.

Sound Cradle

Everything was very well organised from start to finish. Communication from Hireaband and the band themselves was great. The band were fantastic and had everyone dancing all night. What a great night we all had and I wouldn't hesitate to book Sound Cradle again.

Sound Cradle

Sound Cradle' were absolutely fantastic. The dance floor being packed from the beginning to the end of the night was testament to how great they were.
The variety and quality of the songs were exceptional and was commented on by many of our guests. The band were extremely accommodating and, honestly, made our day all the more special. On a few occasions my wife and I took time to step back and watch our guests enjoying their night. This was exactly what we wanted for our guests and much of it was down to the top class entertainment provided by the band.
I would highly recommend Sound Cradle to anyone planning on hiring a band for their wedding or any other special occasion.
Hireaband were also great to deal with in the booking of, and lead up to, the day.

Sound Cradle

Excellent band started late due to the meal finishing later but no fault of the band would recommend them to anyone.

Sound Cradle

Perfect band for our event, really added value, everyone loved them.

Sound Cradle

We would like to say a huge thank you to the band, they were excellent and made our wedding reception so much fun. I have had comments from guests about how good the band was. Thank you ever so much

Sound Cradle

Outstanding band! Sound Cradle have played at each of of daughter's weddings both in Scotland and England. Recently our youngest daughter got married in Northamptonshire in England, no one but Sound Cradle would do! Fortunately, they were good enough to travel for us! This band are musically excellent and they know how to tailor their sets to the occasion and people present. Our guests loved them so much they didn't want to let them go at the end of the evening! Book them. You won't find a better band! Highly recommended! Thank you Sound Cradle!

Sound Cradle

The band were absolutely fantastic loved their playlist and all my wedding guests raved about them.

This booking was made very simple and hassle free from start to finish. Great service from hire a band.
The band themselves surpassed all expectations. Created an amazing atmosphere from the word go. Would happily recommend to anyone as I'm sure our guests would too. Everyone was in agreement, the band were superb!
Thanks again to everyone.

Sound Cradle

Hello Hireaband, Sound Cradle were absolutely fantastic at our daughters wedding. They played a variety of music and accommodated the bride and groom by learning their first dance song. First Class and would have no hesitation in recommending this band.

Sound Cradle

We recently had Sound Cradle play at our wedding in the Lynnhurst Hotel. To say that we were pleased with the band is an understatement. They were absolutely fantastic and set the tone for an amazing night following an amazing day. The band sang our 1st dance song (which we normally never like any other covers off) and it was excellent. They had a really relaxed but professional attitude which added to the feeling of the night, even allowing friends and family up to sing along with them. Everyone that attended the wedding commented on how good they were and the variation of music meant the dance floor was never empty! They played music suitable for all ages and tastes. The band provided us with some very cherished memories and we would have no problem in recommending this band to anyone.

Sound Cradle

Sound Cradle were excellent. Very courteous, polite and of course entertaining!

Sound Cradle

Just a short email to say thanks to you and the rest of the band. All my guest commented on and enjoyed the music. Thanks for helping to make a memorable day.

Sound Cradle

I just wanted to thank you for your help with the hire of Sound Cradle for our Global Sales meeting. It all went very smoothly and the band were fantastic! The Ceilidh music was particularly well received and the dance floor was jumping. I'd hire the band again in an instant and I'm sure this will be the start of a long and fruitful relationship between our companies.

Sound Cradle

We just wanted to say thank you for braving the elements and playing for us at our wedding last night. Everyone thought you were FANTASTIC! I particularly enjoyed the Johnny B Goode antics at the end. Thank you!

Sound Cradle

I can honestly say Sound Cradle were the friendliest, most flexible band I have ever dealt with! I suggested a couple of songs and they obliged willingly. All my guests said how great they were and the music was fantastic. Volume spot on too. Loud enough to enjoy but you could still have a conversation. Wouldn't hesitate to hire the guys again. Hireaband were a pleasure to deal with too.

Sound Cradle

Thanks to you for making it a great night. We have had so many people sending texts to say they had a great time.Tam MacMahon

Sound Cradle

Many guests commented on how good the band were. We were very impressed with Hire a Band & Sound Cradle.

Sound Cradle

Dear Hireaband, Sound Cradle was the right choice for our wedding. What a fantastic band! They really made our wedding great. They played our requests and made a great job of our first dance. They were even kind enough to let us use their equipment when the groom and his band mates played a song for the bride. We cannot recommend highly enough. Craig and Frances Martin - Shawlands Park

Sound Cradle

Just a wee note to say a great big thank you to you and the band for the entertainment you provided on Saturday night. I got excellent feedback about you from the parishioners yesterday and they all had a great night and were impressed with the band and the selection you played. I would definitely recommend you to others who are planning a function.

Sound Cradle

It was an absolute pleasure to have you play - you were fantastic and we have had so many comments on how good the band were.

Sound Cradle

Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic night, some great music from a good bunch of guys who kept the night going. Shattered in a good way the next day.

Sound Cradle

Sound Cradle played a great range of tracks and made our wedding reception perfect. We would highly recommend the band.

Sound Cradle

Hi Nicola, the band Sound Cradle were absolutely fantastic and went down a storm; to start with they are all lovely guys. The music, well that's another thing. My husband would have paid the money again to have just sat and listened to them on his own. My Facebook page yesterday was nearly on fire with all the comments about Sound Cradle from young to old. Can't praise them enough, just sorry the night had to end. Would you please pass on our sincere thanks to each of the boys and we hope they go from strength to strength. I now have them stored in my computer for any future functions. Worth every penny. Thanks again.

Sound Cradle

Sound Cradle were absolutely amazing. They were so good, the dance floor was never empty. Everybody has commented on how good they where and asked where I got them from. Certainly will be keeping them in my diary for future gigs. The service at Hireaband has also been great I even got a courtesy call. Great band and great service.- March 2015

Sound Cradle

I would recommend Hire a Band to anyone looking for entertainment, piper etc their customer service is first class! Can I also recommend Sound Cradle this is the second time we have used them and it wont be the last cant recommend them enough. The boys are a great bunch and have the whole venue dancing. They are just fabulous only too keen to help in anyway they can.. If you are looking for a band for your big day or just an occasion then Sound Cradle is def the one.

Sound Cradle

Great band, very fixable, polite and willing to learn and play new material. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Sound Cradle

Just wanted to say again a massive THANK YOU!!!!!! You made our wedding reception at the Grange Manor something to remember. You brought an incredible atmosphere to our function with your music, singing and personalities. We have already been asked for your details (from someone who didn't even attend the wedding). All of our guests have complimented us on our choice of band. We will be sure to recommend you and pass on your details. You were amazing at performing our first dance song, thanks very much. People have commented on this and asked what it was.The ceilidh went down an absolute storm, and with your helpful guidance through the steps meant that the dance floor was packed, including ceilidh novices. Your variety of songs you played throughout the night kept everyone up dancing!!! Also, just wanted to say thanks for keeping in contact despite us moving and changing our contact details. A fantastic night enjoyed by all. Thanks again

Sound Cradle

Sound Cradle were excellent at my wedding. They played a wide variety of music and had everyone of all ages up on the dance floor all night. They were great fun and put on a fantastic performance. All of my guests commented on how good they were. Everyone enjoyed the ceilidh and the band talked everyone through the steps. They played all the songs I requested and were more than happy to learn new songs that I requested. I would definitely recommend Sound Cradle to all my friends.Jackie McLaughlin & Jamie Gilbride - Mar Hall

Sound Cradle

The whole experience, from booking to the performance on the night was excellent. Hireaband staff processed booking efficiently.The band were fantastic and had the dance floor rocking all night. Our first dance was not on their play list but they learned it for us and nailed it on the night. Great band - would recommend to anyone for any event.
