From a start as one of the youngest and most successful acts on the Scottish wedding band circuit, the boys shot to national fame on the UK's most popular talent show "X Factor" back in 2006. They came fourth in the season that was won by the awesome Leona Lewis and shared a stage watched by millions with some of the biggest names in show business.
After the show they released three top ten selling albums, achieving platinum and gold status and are now signed to a major label based in Hong Kong.
They've performed at massive events, including venues like the O2 and have toured with Irish legends, Westlife.
Still based in Scotland, The MacDonald Brothers are booked to perform at the very best events and weddings.
They'll perform hits from their massive repertoire of classic floor fillers with something for everyone. Talented traditional musicians as well as accomplished pop performers, they can deliver an incredibly lively ceilidh set to really get your guests reeling (Doh!)
With all this experience you can expect a really slick and professional show - with superb quality production as standard, but unlike many celebrity acts, these guys are a pleasure to work with, polite, flexible and as everyone knows, immensely talented.
For a very special wedding day indeed, hire the MacDonald Brothers exclusively from their officially appointed agents, Hireaband and get our award winning service plus their fabulous talent in an unbeatable package.

The guys were exceptional, incredibly organised and helpful leading up to our wedding also. Could not recommend them enough. Every wedding we have been to since friends always say, "not as good as the MacDonald Bro's"
Very happy day made all the more special! 10/10
The MacDonald Brothers were absolutely amazing at our wedding! We have had so many comments from our guests as to how good they were. They sang a variety of music catering for all ages at the wedding in addition to the ceilidh set - truly talented musicians!
The guys themselves are a pleasure to deal with both via email prior to the date and on the day itself. We had a few requests which were no problem to them and they also learnt our first dance song. On the day the were happy to pose for photos with guests and were lovely to chat to.
Overall delighted with the band and also the service received from Hire A Band and would more than recommend them!
The Macdonald Brothers were fantastic!! Everyone commented on how amazing they were. Songs flowed one into another meaning the dance floor was always busy!
Absolutely fantastic band! Craig & Brian are positively lovely and were very accommodating with our schedule. Everyone commented on how great they were and were asking us how we found them. Would highly recommend.
They were fantastic. The floor was full the entire night. Many thanks.
I was hoping that you could pass on my thanks to the boys for the part they played in making our day so special, so many of our guests commented on their performance. The ceilidh section of their set was particularly popular!
I would like them to know all that they did was very much appreciated.
I cannot stress strongly enough how fantastic The MacDonald Brothers were. They helped continue what was already an amazing day through into the evening, with all our guests up dancing and singing for the entire evening reception. We have had so much positive feedback from our guests and would readily recommend them to anyone who is looking for an upbeat wedding band with a great mix of pop and Scottish country music. The boys were polite to all our guests and handled the initial onslaught of requests for photos in a very professional manner!
Hello Craig, Thank you so much to you and Brian for playing at Ashleigh and Grant's wedding. You really made the whole thing so very special. What a surprise they got, and so did all the other guests. Everyone is still talking about it, saying it's the best wedding they have ever been to and they can't believe they have seen and met "The MacDonald Brothers". I have had so many guests say that they wish they could do it all over again very soon. You made is so Magical for them!!! Thank you guys so much once again. Take care on your travels.
The MacDonald Brothers were the icing on the cake of the most perfect day we could have ever asked for. The guys were polite, very friendly and put on a first class performance. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top band for their wedding.
The band where outstanding and definitely made a happy day even more enjoyable, i would recommend them to anybody. Hireaband is a great site giving easy access to all the wedding bands out there making it easier to choose and saving a lot of time.
Hi, the whole experience from booking to the MacDonald Brothers performance was first class! We had a number of people call us after the event who thought that the band were fantastic! Thanks to everyone for what turned out to be a great night!
The McDonald Brothers were the perfect choice for our wedding. They played a great range of music and despite the relatively small numbers we had at the wedding, they successfully managed to keep the dance floor packed and the party going all night. The ratio of traditional Scottish music to modern, retro and classic party tunes was perfect, and they even took the odd request - including finishing the night with Auld Lang Syne at our request. Polite and friendly guys providing GREAT entertainment - they will be our first stop for our next big party. Thanks boys - it was all just perfect.
Hello Del - I just wanted to thank you and your team for all the assistance you've given me in getting the concert together. My friend Theresa said it was a great day and that The MacDonald Brothers were absolutely fantastic. The girls all had a great time and they got what we hoped for - a mountain top moment- as we say in Guiding. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Brian and Craig for helping make the occasion such a success. Many thanks again Del
Dear Mr. Cotton - As you know we booked The MacDonald Brothers for my daughters wedding on the 14th November. I would like you to let the boys know that everyone who attended thought they were fantastic. They catered for all tastes and the time they spent with the guests afterward was greatly appreciated. Their contribution helped to make the wedding a great success and I would like you to pass on to them my thanks. Thank you so much.
From the moment I contacted Hireaband, I was well looked after. Knowing Brian & Craig personally there was no doubt I wanted them to sing at our wedding. Gaye was an absolute gem liaising with the guys to get it booked nearly 2 years in advance. The guys were an absolute hit, our guests had the best night and most said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The dance floor was never empty. Thank you!
