The Dawn Patrol


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.
