 The House of Lairds Function Band Glasgow

Formed at the turn of the millennium, The House of Lairds feature some of Scotland's finest professional musicians.

Their unbelievably high energy shows have resulted in highlights such as performing at T in the Park, The Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party (the biggest new year celebrations in the world) and at various events to mark the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The band have taken their show all over the world, including Angola, The USA, France, Portugal, Spain and even ... England!

If you're a ceilidh beginner or just a bit rusty, the band will "call" (explain the dances step by step) for you. Not a massive ceilidh fan? Don't worry, you'll hear a great selection of pop, rock, country and folk songs. Basically The House of Lairds can cater for almost anyone.

Instruments include drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, accordion, fiddle, mandolin and the much maligned banjo. The band also provides strong male and female vocals and tight harmonies.

Reviews

The House of Lairds

We booked House of Lairds for our wedding and we were not disappointed. They were great at reading the crowd and inter mixing ceilidh with classic tunes. Everyone had the best time! Thank you for making our big day so special.

The House of Lairds

We hired house of lairds for our wedding reception. They played a great mix of both traditional ceilidh and contemporary music. Everyone had positive comments about them and they kept the dance floor full all night.

House of Lairds were absolutely incredible at our wedding last weekend. They took requests and kept the dance floor full all night long. We couldn't have hoped for any more, they were fantastic!

I just wanted to take a moment and send you a note of thanks for the performance that House of Lairds turned in on July 1st at our daughter's wedding. We have all seen bands that simply mail it in and go through their sets as if they just want it to be over with. The energy and enthusiasm that House of Lairds generated at our reception was simply infectious and you ignited the entire crowd into a wonderful frenzy. The Scots, Brits, Irish, Americans and others in our audience had the best time ever and couldn't tell us enough how much they loved your performance. But in addition to showing us that you are world-class entertainers I was also very touched by your humanity. We are an extremely close family so in all candor it is sometimes difficult for me to have my daughter live across the pond where I don't get to visit with her as often as I can with her two sisters who live in the States. Her favorite song is Somewhere Over the Rainbow because it speaks to her in a very real way. We were disappointed when we learned that the band did not have that song on your playlist because we thought that it would make the Father/Daughter dance so incredibly meaningful. One of the greatest surprises of the night was when we realized that you had taken the time to learn the song and played it for us for our dance. You took the time and effort to really emotionally connect with the bride and her father on her special day and we can't thank you enough for that.

The House of Lairds

We want to say a huge thank you to the House of Lairds for playing at our wedding! Never before have we heard a band with so much energy, enthusiasm, and the ability to keep the dance floor full all evening. We have had so many positive comments from guests on how much they enjoyed the music and for that we are extremely grateful.
Such a pleasant experience and such a wonderful band. The House of Lairds really made our wedding truly special.

The House of Lairds were excellent. They did everything they said they would do. They got people dancing, and we all had a great time. Liaison was fine, and we were really pleased with the evening.

Just a wee email to thank all you guys very much for a wonderful performance on Saturday at the Station Hotel Ellon on our wedding day. We are very grateful for you all playing a part in our very special day. The reports we have received from our guests has been of the highest order. Your assessment and musical choice was second to none the whole evening from start to finish. Once again we cannot express our gratitude enough for a fantastic evening of all tastes of music.

We were very pleased with all aspects of their performance, arriving punctually, setting up unobtrusively & departing without fuss. They accepted any requests, kept the noise level down & were able to cater extremely well for a very wide age range.

The band were absolutely first class and they had the dance floor going all night. They even let one of the guests do her songs during the interval which was amazing too.Would definitely book them again and recommend them to anyone wanting to put on a top party.
