The Dawn Patrol

The Dawn Patrol can rightly claim to be one of the finest contemporary wedding and function bands in Scotland.

Overview

The Dawn Patrol can rightly claim to be one of the finest contemporary wedding and function bands in Scotland.

 

So what makes a great live band anyway? It really depends on what kind of event you're planning, but let's assume you're looking for a band for your wedding, party or corporate event.  Here's a checklist of what you should be looking for;

  • The ability to perform a wide range of songs from ceilidh, classic oldies to current charts so that everyone hears something they want to dance to
  • Musical talent - the individual musicians should be of a very high standard but they should also gel well so that the band sounds polished and slick. What we call "tight" in the music business
  • Experience - the ability to handle anything that may come up (and usually something does) at any kind of event; from playing requests, to controlling volume, to being asked if uncle Jim can come up and sing
  • Professionalism - turning up on time, setting up without fuss and being flexible because each event is different
  • Good equipment - you need to be able to hear and see the band at their best and they need to be able to do the songs justice
  • Reliability - the best band in the world is useless if they don't actually get to your venue
  • A great reputation - lots of great reviews from previous clients

The Dawn Patrol ticks all of these boxes. It's easy to over hype a band - after all because it's so hard to get on the Hireaband roster you know you can expect every band we represent to be of a very high standard, but if you spend just 10 minutes listening and watching this great band in action, you'll soon realise that you're considering a very special band indeed.

Reviews

The Dawn Patrol

Since I originally saw Dawn Patrol at 2 of my friends weddings a few years ago I always knew I wanted them to perform at my wedding. David and the band were so helpful when I asked any questions.
The band were amazing from start to finish. Everyone has told me how good they were. I danced my socks off so much so I didn’t get a chance to speak to some of my guests- oops!
I would recommend Dawn Patrol to anyone who asked for a recommendation
Thanks for making my night so very special

The Dawn Patrol were nothing short of amazing. They truly went over and above our expectations. The Dawn Patrol made our wedding reception what it was... incredible. If anyone in future we’re looking for a band 100000% recommend The Dawn Patrol.

The Dawn Patrol

It's taken us a week to come back down to earth after the wedding high but we really wanted to say thank you for playing at our wedding reception.

I had spent weeks and weeks searching through recommendations from friends, every entertainment agent known to man and listened to so many clips.

We always wanted it to feel like our guests were at a gig and the minute I heard David's voice I was hooked and the tightness and talent across all the band really give it that festival feel. Our guests having been raving about you, everyone had an absolute ball. Thank you for doing what you do so well.

All the best,
The Galloway's woohoo!.

The Dawn Patrol

The Dawn patrol played at our wedding at Ross Priory, Loch Lomond. They were absolutely amazing and all our guests loved them with some listening from the grounds as the weather was so fantastic. Our wee dog Bonnie thoroughly enjoyed them too, especially the singer's drink - sorry about that!!
Thanks so much guys!!! Best wedding band!

The Dawn Patrol

The Dawn Patrol played at our wedding, at Hetland Hall and they were superb. As soon as we started planning our wedding we knew we wanted the band to play for us and, luckily, they were available. The band had played at two family weddings and they had everyone on the dance floor from start to finish. So, booking them was a no brainer. From our first communication with them, until the evening reception, we couldn’t have asked for a more professional group of people. On the wedding day, they didn’t disappoint. People were dancing all night, their rapport with our guests was first class and the band’s dance-off was the talk of the reception. So many people commented about how great they were and they really made our day so much more perfect. If you’re looking for a wedding band who play a huge variety of music, ensuring that all ages of guests get up and dance, book The Dawn Patrol!

The Dawn Patrol

The Dawn Patrol are outstanding. Not only can they get everyone in a room on the dance floor but they are the most pleasant gents we have met. People are still texting me and telling me how amazing the band were, 'the best band we have ever heard at a wedding' a good few have said. So if you have a wedding or event coming up, these guys are your men!!! Or even if you just want a good night out get along to see them play somewhere. Thanks so much again, we hope you had as much fun as us!

The Dawn Patrol

Dealing with hireaband was very easy and I was kept informed at each stage of the booking. The band The Dawn Patrol were outstanding and with over 150 at our wedding it was hard to please everyone but they succeeded and the dance floor was packed all night long and every person raved about how great the band were. Thanks for making our wedding day that bit more special xx
