They've come together to create a wedding and function band built from the ground up to offer a polished, exciting, reliable and most importantly, great sounding band.
Gregor, the chap with the distinctive haircut in the picture above has performed all over the world with members of this band and as the original guitar player in The Red Hot Chili Pipers and now with Bags of Rock.
The level of musicianship from the lads is of course of the very highest standard, but Strange Bru care more about filling dance floors and entertaining than in showing off their very obvious musical prowess. They love what they do and it shows in every single performance - no sullen clock watching from these guys.
Strange Bru is the band to hire if you want your wedding to be extra special, your event to run smoothly and reliably and for your guests to have the night of their lives.
The guys are also happy to play a 20/30 minute ceilidh set if required. They affectionately call these sessions 'Ceilidh Capers' as they interact with your guests both calling and demonstrating the dance steps. The sight of Gregor and John skipping their way through a 'Military Two Step' will have all your guests in stitches!
The band also offers a professional DJ service between midnight and 1am at a price a lot lower than hiring in a separate DJ which also means you'll get the same sensational sound quality from the bands equipment not to mention saving a lot of space. Quotes for the DJ service are provided separately from the instant quotes from the web site.

This bunch of absolute legends made our wedding reception out of this world. From our first dance to the last incredible tune, the boys gave it 200%. What seemed to be a career defining performance, the highlight of which was G-Mans rendition of Rappers Delight! The dance floor was full from the word go and we’ve had nothing but compliments from all of our guests that the band were outstanding. GET THE BOYS BOOKED!
Thanks so much for playing our wedding in Luss a couple of weeks ago! I don’t normally post review (as I’m normally too lazy) but I have to go out of my way to say how amazing you were! From first dance to last, you had our guests on their feet and we especially appreciated the fact that you learned our (relatively obscure) first dance tune as well!! A lot of guests commented on how brilliant you were! Thanks again!
Strange Bru were absolutely brilliant! They had all our guests up dancing from the very start! Lots of people commented on how great a band they were!
Thanks very much to Del and the team from Hireaband for arranging for Strange Bru to play at our wedding. A seamless service from start to finish, we couldn’t recommend Hireaband highly enough!
Just a quick note to all the Bru Boys for playing our wedding reception last night at Shieldhill Castle. We’ve had sooo many compliments on how amazing you were and honestly we couldn’t have asked for a better band to play. You were truly remarkable. We loved that you managed to sing our first dance live as well and even took requests from our daughters which obviously weren't on your set but you still accommodated. Huge thanks to you all from the new Mr & Mrs Reynolds
Strange Bru were a fantastic band and professional from start to finish. But best of all they helped fill the dance floor all night with great song choices and really made our wedding reception a night to remember! Chris and I are delighted we chose them.
Claire and Chris
Anne and I had Strange Bru as the band for our wedding reception last night. Awesome performance from the guys who kept the everyone up on the dance floor from start to finish and even chucked in a couple of extra songs at the end of the night. Everyone at the wedding said they were great too and all had a fantastic time. Absolutely Amazing group of guys and I think that everyone should be booking them for their wedding as you’ll not find a better band anywhere.
Strange-Bru played our wedding on Saturday 8th September 2018 and were just OUTSTANDING! Everyone tells you your guests will remember two things about your wedding...the food and the music, so get that right...and we certainly did when we booked Strange-Bru! The guys were great to deal with in the run up to the big day, and on the night were absolutely spot on...the dancefloor was packed from beginning to end. Fantastic musicians, great voices, and just such brilliant fun! They did us a full band set, ceilidh section (even had the non-English-speaking guests Stripping The Willow like pros!) and a DJ set for our last hour. Can’t recommend them enough!!
It was a real pleasure having you guys to celebrate our day with us, and we’re genuinely touched that you appreciated the more personal vibe. You guys were a huge hit - loads of guests seeking us to comment on just what a fantastic band you were. Ella and I were so pleased, it really was a brilliant set.
And thank you for the pictures! As you can imagine we’re hungry for any pics of the day, so these will be added to the collection!
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you rock out another wedding soon.
Strange Bru were fantastic my guests loved them! Thanks again
What can I say!?
Sincerely thanks for everything. The band absolutely rocked it. From Thunderstruck to Dignity you had them in the palms of your hands. The band is always the most important thing at a wedding and you guys smashed it. Everyone is raving about You. Genuinely, you went above and beyond.
Thank you guys so much for making our wedding reception truly amazing! Loved all the songs and what an atmosphere. You certainly filled the dance floor that’s for sure. Can’t thank you all enough. Great night.
Strange Bru were fantastic!!!!! Excellent service for the whole thing through Hireaband.
Had Strange Bru playing our wedding on the 4th of August and they were amazing. Had nothing but good reviews from friends and family. We were grateful that they took the time to learn our first dance and totally blown away by the full set. Thanks again for a great sound track to our night. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a wedding band.
Thank you for a brilliant reception on Saturday. It was a brilliant night.
All my wedding guests thought the band were brilliant and everyone had a great night and enjoyed the dancing.
What a brilliant day/night. The band were fantastic.
Strange Bru was AMAZING!!! Very nice guys. Fun appearance and great performance. The guests, Chris, and I loved them. They arrived on time, set up, and performed Chris' favorite songs that he sent them. The guys learned our first dance song as was promised. Hire A Band wasn't pushy at all unlike some other agencies I contacted. Professional and easy to talk to. We are very much impressed with both the service agency and band.
Look no further than these guys if you are looking for a wedding band, or a band for an event. They are truly awesome!! They have a great music selection, they sound great, but more than that, they are a great edition to the all round entertainment of your wedding or event. They ran a ceilidh at our wedding and we had a absolute ball getting lost in the moves! We had so many of our guests complementing them as well. I would recommend in a heartbeat!!
Guys, thanks for a fantastic night. I know all my daughter and her husbands guest all loved the band. The way you added in the extra Ceilidh Capers section was brilliant. I never thought half those guests would get involved. It was brilliant and the rest was just such great fun. You really know how to get a crowd involved and are not just some background band. Thank you so much.
What lovely guys. When we booked you two years ago we knew you would be amazing and all our guests raved about you too. From start to finish you rocked the place. Very lovely, genuine guys, you would be missing out if you didn't book, trust us. All the best Bru-Boys. We will never forget how magical you made our night.
Miss you guys already. Thanks for making our wedding the best night ever.
Everything from start to finish was amazing. Big thank you to all the Hireaband staff you made our day perfect. Strange Bru were fantastic and really made our wedding magical.
Trev and Jane McKnight
Strange Bru played our wedding on the 2nd of June, what can I say? Absolutely brilliant.
Outstanding wedding band. Our guests are still messaging us a month later to tell us how great the band were. Live music is a huge passion for me & my husband - we were not disappointed by this booking. Dance floor was full the whole evening. Easy & Professional to deal with as well during the booking process. Highly recommended, I'm already looking for another excuse to book them again.
Thank you so much for making the party such a brilliant occasion - Everyone who attended complimented you all and had a great time!
Great Selection of songs and really good fun! I wasn't expecting people to be dancing throughout the night which is clearly a tribute to Strange Bru!
You guys did an absolutely amazing job, I cannot thank you enough.
The dance floor was jumping all night and we had so much fun!!!
So pleased we booked you and I would recommend you to anyone else moving forward!!
These guys are fantastic! Would highly recommend this group as they made our evening reception a night to remember. Everyone was on the dance floor... Never empty, and they play a great mix of music to suit everyone's taste. Wish we could do it all over again!
Loved having Strange-Bru play our wedding last night. You guys were fantastic and our guests have all said the same thing. I couldn't recommend this band more to anyone! Great group with personality as well as musical talent.
We had the best day imaginable at the Brig O Doon for our wedding, made all the more special by the 'Bru-boys'. Our guests and I had the best night, while you rocked the dance floor. You made the night so relaxed and fun, filling the dance floor from start to finish.
We can't thank you enough for making what was a special day turn into an amazing party.
If you're getting married soon the 'Bru-Boys' are a must.
You played at my cousins wedding on Saturday night.
Fantastic band, had the dance floor full all night! Played a great mix of songs to suit everyone! Thanks for a great night of music!
I had the best birthday party ever last night in Blackfriars and it was down to this band! They were amazing and all my guests thought so too :)
I saw Strange Bru tonight at a 50th in Black Friars...... brilliant!
Strange Bru played at my wedding in December and were fantastic, the dance floor was full all night! Highly recommend, thanks guys!
What a band!
We were stuck on what kind of band we wanted at our wedding but upon hearing Strange-Bru at a show case we knew they were the band for us... and boy we weren't disappointed!
Everyone has complimented how good the band was and the ceilidh certainly got people on the dance floor! Made our big day a special one, thanks guys!
Thank you so much for making our night amazing! You guys were out of this world and everyone was absolutely raving about you! We are so glad we found you as we really wanted a band with personality and a wide repertoire, both of which you have in abundance.
These guys played at our wedding just this weekend past, I have to say, both of us are so glad we booked Strange Bru, they were absolutely fantastic!!! Honestly if anyone is reading these reviews, just book them for your wedding you will not regret it! Thank you soooo much to all these guys, you really did make the night an awesome one!!!
We had Strange Bru play our combined 40ths/21st/16th and they were fantastic. All our guests commented on how great a band they were, how good the playlist was (their choices) and how well they interacted with the crowd. Thank you for making our party a memorable one. They were truly amazing and can't recommend them highly enough!
If you are reading this and thinking about booking Strange Bru for your event then do not hesitate! We knew as soon as we met them they were perfect for our wedding. They were friendly, helpful, polite and relaxed us both from an early stage that they would take care of things. They even took time out to learn our wedding song.
On the night of our wedding they rocked! They engaged with the crowd and had the place bouncing. The dance floor was genuinely full all night from the first song and Strange Bru have played an important part in making our wedding the absolute best day of our lives.
Take my advice, this is the band for you!
These amazingly talented and lovely guys played at our wedding and I can honestly say they were outstanding!
These guys are extremely organised and more importantly know how to get a crowd going! They had the dance floor packed the entire night, their play set was a perfect mix of classics, newer songs and of course included a little bit of Ceilidh which went down a storm. All in all just perfect!
If anyone wants a band who pleased the crowd, creates memories and interacts then look no further! Thank you for making our wedding such a memorable one! Love and best wishes.
I can't thank you and the guys enough. Everyone thought you were amazing and had a brilliant night.
I had the best day ever and didn't want it to end. I'm so glad I booked you for our wedding.
Thanks so much.
Great day and night had by all and it doesn't get any better than having a band happy to get involved and become part of the occasion. No pretenses, no problems, just good old fashioned fun throughout!
Can't thank you guys enough for the set you played and the way you helped us celebrate our wedding day!
If you ever need or want any feedback or testimonials then me and Emma plus about another 100+ guests would be more than happy to oblige!
Thanks again for your input, and thanks to G-Man for extending the party too!'
Thanks guys for an absolutely amazing night! I honestly cannot recommend you enough! Awesome! xx
Absolutely phenomenal band! My wedding reception was made by these guys - got the party started and kept it going! So many of my guests said how fantastic they were. Loved every minute! They were thorough and on point playing the right blend of oldies, classics and newer stuff! Would highly recommend.
You guys were amazing! I was determined to dance all night and I am not sure I left the dance floor at all, in fact the dance floor was full all night! Thank you for making our reception exactly what we wanted it to be, a bloody great party.
From the booking and the Hireaband staff to the band on the night, everything was perfect. Could not be happier with our choice, the dance floor was full all night and the guys played a perfect mix of songs that had everyone dancing and singing along including a couple of requests, and our first dance song!
Would not hesitate to recommend Hireaband or Strange Bru to anyone looking to book entertainment!
Strange Bru were absolutely terrific. Our dance floor was mobbed all night and everyone has commented on how good they were.
A very talented set of guys and we are delighted that we chose them to play on our special day - thanks guys.
We want to give a massive thanks to you and the boys for your performance. Everyone loved the music and you really made the party! We'll definitely be recommending you guys.
The band were amazing and really helped make the night what it was!
Strange Bru definitely didn't disappoint us they were fantastic! The guys were great and played a range of songs to suit all ages at our wedding. Everyone said how fab they were and how a band makes a wedding. Strange Bru definitely made our wedding one to remember they even took requests from the kids and sang I've got a feeling by Will I Am much to my 6 year old twins delight ! We would recommend them and were sad to see them play their last song of the night :(
Thank you guys! We have had so many comments from people telling us how great they thought you were, so really can't thank you all enough for keeping everyone entertained and dancing all night! It was a perfect night to a perfect day!
Will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in search of a wedding band, and will give a glowing review on Facebook and to Hireaband also. Thank you again :)
'Wow... You guys were truly awesome performing at our wedding on Saturday at the Eglinton Arms. Special thanks for learning our first 2 dances. It meant a lot to us, they were spot on. We had so many compliments from friends and family on how amazing you guys are. You kept the dance floor busy all night with a great mix of music. Our guest and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a band for their special day.
Scott and Emma Kennedy
'Thank you so much for last night. You guys were amazing. All my guests have been raving about you all day! I think you might get another invite back down next year for a very impressed couple's wedding!'
Just a note to say that Strange Bru were absolutely great at our wedding - the floor was jumping all night. Great song selections and very professional. Would highly recommend this band!
Strange Bru were an absolute pleasure to have play at our wedding. I had great communication from John via email over first dance songs etc, the guys were punctual, looked great and all very friendly as I was lucky to have a wee chat with all four of them during the break. So many of my guests have been raving about how fantastic the band were! They played all the right songs, the dance floor wasn't empty the whole night and the only complaint I've heard was from my 70 year old father in law who said they were "a bit loud"! However every other guest is understanding that a band should be loud! I would recommend Strange Bru to anyone looking for an amazing party atmosphere at their wedding.
We had a fantastic experience with hireaband. We arranged our wedding from China and they made the whole process simple and swift. The band we ended up using, Strange Bru were outstanding and totally made the evening for us.
Oh thank you so much we had an amazing evening and you guys def helped make it the night we wished for. I'll be sure to recommend you, everyone was so impressed with you all. Good luck!
The guys were absolutely fantastic. I cannot praise them highly enough. Right from the first contact to the last email thanking us for booking them (no thanks needed!), the guys were nothing short of professional and polite but also really friendly and seemed up for a laugh. All of our guests commented on how great they were and the choices of songs they played. If we're ever in need of a live band again we will definitely be in touch. Thanks again guys!
Absolutely fantastic night and you guys were top notch. Everyone was full of praise for the band and we are delighted we chose you as our wedding band. Also a huge thanks for allowing Davie to sing with you, it's an ongoing tradition and we couldn't pass up the opportunity.
A massive thanks again and all the best in the future.
Strange Bru were outstanding. The guys were amazing from start to finish and are the nicest guys you could ever meet. We loved every minute of their performance and it is definitely a night we will never forget.
To you and all the band - we can't thank you enough!! We had a phenomenal night - the dancefloor was packed and we received endless compliments on how fantastic you were. Also - good shout on the ceilidh!
Thank you so, so much again for making our reception so much fun!!
Strange-Bru!!! Thank you SO SO much for playing at our wedding on Saturday at Aswanley. You were ABSOLUTELY brilliant! You couldn't have done a better job for us. We don't think the dance floor was ever empty whilst you were playing. You really made it such a special evening and our guests have been raving about you. THANK YOU AGAIN!! X
Strange Bru were fantastic, really made the night. The dance floor was never empty and I can't recommend them enough. Thank you!
Just a massive thank you for making our night so special and memorable!
You were fantastic and we had a ball!
Our first dance was absolutely amazing and everything we had dreamed it would be, as was the entire evening from start to finish!
Everyone is raving about how great you were and how much fun was had.
The dance floor wasn't empty the whole night!
Lovely and great bunch of guys!
Totally professional too!
If you were ever live anywhere we would be first in queue. Thanks again.
Strange Bru were absolutely brilliant - they made our wedding reception perfect, the dance floor was never empty and everyone had a great time. Hire a band were so friendly and helpful right from the start and I would recommend them to anyone looking to book entertainment. Thank you very much to you all.
Excellent band, had our guests dancing all night. Even learned our first dance and done an amazing rendition. Everyone has said how great they were. Thank you guys!
Thanks to yourself and the rest of the boys for making the night so amazing for ourselves and all our guests! Everyone had an absolute ball and you guys had the dance floor full all night!
Your version of our first dance song was better than we could have dreamed of and thank you so much for learning it for us!
Strange Bru were fantastic at our wedding. They had good banter with the guests and accommodated a few late requests on the night. We really enjoyed having them play at our wedding and would thoroughly recommend to other couples.
We can't rate Strange Bru highly enough. They were fantastic!!!
Unfortunately, our wedding service/meal etc ran on so I'd like to apologise for keeping the boys waiting to start.
We absolutely loved having Strange Bru as our wedding band and have only heard positive comments from our guests about how good the band were. They played a variety of music to suit everyone and were very well liked. They got everyone on the dance floor and enjoying themselves.
We were delighted with our choice of wedding band - Strange Bru were fantastic! Our guests loved them and they really got the party started and kept the dance floor full. Great banter and talented musicians.
From booking to day of the wedding, everyone was really helpful and nothing was to much of a hassle. Strange Bru did an excellent job on the night and went out of their way to make sure that we where both happy with everything, which just made it the perfect night to a perfect day. The dance floor was never empty. Thanks again everyone.
Everyone had an absolute ball and we had nothing but compliments about you guys - my dad especially was completed bowled over by how good you were!
We honestly couldn't have had a better night and we're so grateful to you keeping the dance floor full!
We'd love to do you a proper testimonial and we'll get a review on Facebook too once we're back from honeymoon!
We were over the moon with Strange Bru at our wedding reception! The guys were lovely, really friendly and so good at what they do. We'd seen them at a friend's wedding so had high expectations, and they didn't disappoint! The dance floor was full from start to finish, with a brilliant mix of older, newer and classic songs! We loved the ceilidh set, it went down so well, and they took requests in their stride! We couldn't have had a better night :)
Hireaband were really professional, Gaye was so helpful throughout the process and Del was great at getting back to us too - thanks so much for all your help!
Strange Bru were absolutely amazing at our wedding. They learned a song for us at the brides request that they had never played before and it was fantastic. We loved their fun energy and I don’t think the dance floor was empty when they were playing. We even had a ceilidh for around 15 minutes which was great fun and got everyone up dancing! They were all really friendly and I would definitely recommend to anyone!
Hi Guys. You were absolutely brilliant!! We had so much fun and you kept us on the dancefloor the whole night!! Loved it - thank you x
Strange Bru were superb. They really got everyone dancing from the start of the evening (even the non-drinkers in the family were on the dancefloor by 8.30!!).
They did a great job with the first dance (though our dancing wasn't too hot :)) and a bit of the Gay Gordons which the overseas visitors loved.
They played some great tunes. Their lively performance really made a difference and magically they played some of our favourite songs. We couldn't stay off the dancefloor and lost count of number of guests who kept saying how great the band was
If you want a wedding band who delivers a great night - don't hesitate - book these guys :) Couldn't recommend highly enough!
Strange Bru were fantastic when they played at our wedding. They had everyone on the dance floor for the whole night. Couldn't fault them and I would recommend them to anyone.
Strange Bru were a fabulous band, they learned our first song for us which was spot on. Wish I could live the night again so I could have danced more to the excellent tunes. Most of our guests commented on how good the band were and how they were constantly on the dance floor. Thank you.
The band were fantastic. Would recommend them to anyone who has a wedding or just wants a function band. The guys couldn't have been friendlier. Worth every penny too!
Thank you so much guys, all our guests said you were one of the best wedding bands and we would agree!! Our dance floor was occupied all night and even the oldies enjoyed the mix of music eras.
Having booked you from just your online demo we were not disappointed and would recommended any couples out their to do the same. Thank you once again.
Strange Bru were an amazing live band, they were kind enough to learn our first dance song and many of the people in attendance at the wedding, are still talking about them. Some of Louise's friends are actually recommending them for future weddings on the basis of what they heard that night. We couldn't have asked for more from the band, and were easily contacted after your initial handover to them. They are a nice group of guys, warm and friendly, we actually took time out after they finished playing as we felt they did an amazing job and we hope to see them in the future at 1 of their own gigs. Would highly recommend.
From start to finish, we couldn't be happier with our choice of band as Strange Bru and booking through Hireaband. Everything was really smooth which made things easier for us having a lot to organise at the same time. The band are a great bunch of guys, all really friendly and helpful - and they can play a bit too! We were pretty sure before seeing them live we wanted to book them and we're really happy we did, they were brilliant on the night and all our guests loved them! They were open to learning and playing our first dance which was a new song for them so a big thanks for that. We have recommended them to friends already and hope to see them again soon at other weddings!Thanks to Hireaband for helping us and making our booking a pleasant and straightforward experience.
Hi Del, I just wanted to say Strange Bru were absolutely brilliant on Saturday! They went down a storm and what a great bunch of guys. Thanks so much for recommending them. Can I stick a wee date in their diary please? 27th September for the same gig in Aberdeen?
Excellent service from both Hireaband and Strange-Bru
We had an amazing night out thanks to Strange Bru - we would highly recommend them! Thanks again!
Fantastic band, sounded great and had a really good mix of songs that kept the dance floor full all night. Would not hesitate to recommend, thanks again.
We most definitely want to thank you and the boys for the most brilliant party!! You were absolutely fabulous and we loved it from start to finish. The guests were indeed up to party and you made sure they did - so thank you! We've had so many comments on how great the band was and you really did make the day for us. Strange Bru were quite simply absolutely fantastic!! Thank you again.
Just a quick email to say a huge thank you to you and the band for an amazing wedding! All our guests and family have been raving about you guys and we can't thank you enough for everything you guys have done for us on the run up to the day and making the night so lively and entertaining! Cheers Guys
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the band thought your set was superb and you most definitely got the crowd going and kept them fully charged for the whole night. Thoroughly enjoyed all the capers and the "taps aff" for the guy guests they lapped it up. Cheers for a fantastic nite.
Strange Bru were amazing, they were great at interacting with the guests and keeping everyone on their feet all night. And they did an awesome job on our first dance song. People are still saying how much they loved them several months on!
Strange Bru were amazing everyone was up on the dance floor from the first song and commented on how good they were. We are really pleased with our choice and had a truly great night. Would recommend both Strange Bru and using Hireaband who were also really helpful from first contact.
We have had an absolutely fantastic experience with both Hire a Band and the boys from Strange Bru. From the minute we booked at the showcase night to the wedding, the service has been efficient and organised. On the night the band were brilliant, our guests have raved out them and the dance floor was full all night. I particularly liked that they offered to do a few ceilidh songs as we had such a good crowd up dancing. Thank all for making out wedding day such a success.May 2014
Strange Bru are the wedding band for you!!! They had our venue rocking from the get go...They work the crowd...They are easy to deal with....And sound truly awesome!!! So many of our guests have asked for more info about them! ....We cant praise this band enough!! Thanks guys!
Thanks again for playing for us. Everyone loved the band. You were superb!
