If having a cheesy pop band or a bunch of kids just out of school perform at your wedding or event is your idea of hell, then here's the alternative - Ladies & Gentlemen, Scotland's favourite agency is proud to present The Scoundrels.
This is a proper band made up of experienced and talented musicians who know how to fill a dance floor. In fact there's hardly a corner of Scotland that hasn't been rocked by this fantastic band. Impossible to pigeon hole, you're as likely to hear a traditional Irish drinking song as you are a tune from the current top ten, but their sound is 100% authentic with no tolerance for pre-recorded nonsense from these lads.
Combining drums and cajon, bass, fiddle, guitar, banjo and the raspy vocals of one of Scotland's finest singers, you'll have an experience with The Scoundrels you and your guests will never forget.
On the practical side, the band is compact, requiring minimum space, have no issues with sound limiters and are totally and completely reliable. They're also a breath of fresh air off stage as well as on - you simply won't meet a nicer (and funnier) bunch of musicians anywhere. So if you're planning a wedding but refuse to have the same old wedding band, if you're planning a corporate event and want an authentic gritty sound with a real flavour of Scotland and Ireland, or if you're just having a hooley for the sake of it, we can't recommend The Scoundrels enough.
You can check if the lads are available and even get an instant quote by simply filling in the quick enquiry form. If you'd rather we checked for you just email Gaye@hireaband.co.uk and we'll get back to you on the same business day. One thing we guarantee, you won't be disappointed by one of the finest bands Scotland has to offer.
Last year, we had the privilege of managing the second stage at the Millport Country Music Festival. One of the headline bands was one of the most professional function bands that I have met in my long career - The Scoundrels.
From arriving early (in matching gear) for sound checking, to delivering a storming performance - they were absolute professionals and a joy to work with! They were a tough act to follow though!
Choose your wedding performers with care - and if you are in Scotland, choose these guys!
Just to say a huge thanks for Saturday night, you guys were unbelievable, absolutely loved every minute of the set, something for everyone from Johnny Cash to Faithless!
Amazing feedback too everyone asking who the band were, even the hotel and hotel staff!
And thanks again for letting my sister and cousin do the song in the interval and wee Chester to do the pipes with you at midnight it was awesome. And my wee impromptu burst of song at the end of the night!
Thanks again, you guys really made the night!!
The band were amazing. Made the wedding so Scottish. Ceilidh dances were fab. 10/10
The Scoundrels… absolutely awesome! This band made our wedding, the best decision we could have made! A mix of traditional and modern music with a Celtic edge.
Playing recognisable songs in a Celtic way... this was great as many of our guests were from the South so they could enjoy the Scottish theme while knowing many of the songs. They also played some traditional songs that went down an absolute storm.
The ceilidh was a great addition and really good way of adding something different to the evening. It wasn’t too serious and the guys organised it really well so everyone could join in. They managed the tempo of the evening really well, moving from the slow 1st dance to full-on party time to get things going.
The guys worked hard all night and kept the dance floor busy all evening, they even got the guests involved, creating our own little band (No hope). We loved the fact they didn’t take themselves too seriously and wanted to keep us entertained, at one point Gerry the lead singer came out to the garden to get people back onto the dance floor, the guests were happy to oblige!
Having spent the last 2 years attending weddings with many of our friends I can honestly say these were the best band we have seen, these were also the words of our guests and not just Hannah and I, as we might be slightly biased.
We couldn’t have asked for more from the Scoundrels, the band evening makes or breaks a wedding and these guys certainly made our wedding day for us.
We will be seeing them again at some point as people are asking me for their details to bring them down South!
We just wanted to thank you again for playing at our wedding, the music was outstanding and the setlist was great!
The cover of tougher than the rest was amazing! Everyone loved you guys and we have heard people say one of the best bands they have seen at a wedding. You were great at getting people up and dancing and Blair was a fab caller for the ceilidh dances, so much fun!
We hope to see you perform again at some point
Absolutely amazing! You made our day thank you so much!!! Everyone was raving about you guys and Discoland was special to say the least. Learning to play Indian Summer for our first dance was fantastic and you did it more than justice. We couldn’t be happier with you honestly it was a belter everyone has mentioned how good you were ESPECIALLY when the generator ran out and you did an intimate impromptu set on the middle tables. We definitely will be seeing you again
Once again, thank you so much for playing at our wedding! We loved every minute of it. Thanks to you guys and all our guest were raving about your music! What an atmosphere you created! I highly recommend to anyone looking for something a bit different for their big day! Thank you so much!
I just wanted to take this time to thank you and the rest of the band for the wonderful set you played at our wedding last week.
The music was truly amazing and we loved listening to you.
We have heard rave reviews about you from our guests who loved it every bit as much as we did! I can't remember a song that didn't have the dance floor rocking!
Add the music to your willingness to listen and perform any requests plus the fact you are all-round nice guys means I would thoroughly recommend The Scoundrels to anyone who wants a lively and excellent band for their big day. Thanks again, lads!
I found both The Scoundrels and Hireaband so professional and easy to work with as they got back to me very quickly and nothing was too much hassle. On the night, the band were fantastic, the dance floor was never emptied and they created such a good atmosphere for our wedding.
An amazing band! So glad we found them. Even in such short notice, they played our first dance song as requested and it was perfect. Thank you very much!
Absolutely delighted when we found out that The Scoundrels were available for our wedding at Kincraig Castle House hotel last Saturday, and man they didn’t disappoint! We had an absolutely amazing time and our day was made even more special by the band who delivered a brilliant performance.
So receptive to our track list and they even learned our first dance so that we could have it performed live.
Very talented musicians and every one of our guests loved them and were on the dance floor all night.
If you're looking for a wedding band with an amazing sound- This is it!!!
Thanks again Gerry and the band we’d love to book you guys again in the future.
We got married on Saturday and we chose the Scoundrels as our wedding band. In the lead up to the wedding, Gerry was easy to get in touch with and very accommodating. On the night, the band were absolutely fantastic- everyone is still talking about what a great job they did. They are professional, fun and very talented; three things that don’t come together very often in life
The band were amazing and were very professional. The whole evening was fantastic, playing a very good range of music. I would just like to say a very big thank you to Gerry and the rest of the band and would definitely book you again (if you will have us!). Thank so much once again for contributing to a special night for William's 60th.
I would like to say that the Scoundrels were perfect for the party on Sat 13th Oct 2018. They arrived in plenty of time and had setup and sound checked for the first guests arriving. They were happy accommodating our timings with the surprise and were the perfect party hosts with good rapport and chat with the guests.
Their music was fantastic and sounded excellent, many of the guests made comment on this. They played the requested songs as well as some more up to date covers and had the dance floor filled right to the last song. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Scoundrels for any occasion and will definitely keep them in mind for any future parties.
Please pass on my regards to the band and thanks to all the team at hireaband.
We hired The Scoundrels for a corporate function in march this year 2018,
We found the band to be good value for money in a few instances, Music range was great and played to the crowd. Requests were taken and every instruction was followed and carried out by Gerry. As you can imagine there is a lot of goings on and starting and stopping which goes on but nothing was any trouble.
Gerry even carried on throughout the night (we had booked out a whole hotel) playing in the bar until the last man was standing which for me is great customer care and ensuring that it was a night to remember.
I would highly recommend The Scoundrels to any event and would hire them again in a heartbeat as all my colleagues loved it. So if you are thinking of hiring them it’s a no brainer
