You need as much flexibility as possible from your wedding or function band. With such a range of ages to cater for, there's no point in hiring a band who are only good at one style of music. That's where The Shakers excel - you'll hear music from Glenn Miller right up to Pharrel Williams and everything in between.

The musicians in the band are of a very high standard. This is not a pub band that plays at weddings for a bit of extra cash. The Shakers were designed from the ground up to provide a 100% reliable and totally professional approach to performing and as such, you'll never see this band in a pub or club.

Here are some of the stand out reasons for hiring The Shakers

  • The very latest equipment and well maintained transport. This band will not let you down.
  • A ceilidh set of up to 30 mins. which can be extended to 45 mins if you choose the live fiddle option.
  • The ability to add additional musicians including a stunning female vocalist if required.
  • A very long list of truly satisfied customers. The band are regularly booked by several members of the same family.
  • Easy to get on with nice people. This is a band who know you have a choice and as such they're aware of their excellent reputation which is ultra important to them.
  • Superb value for money. You'll be very pleasantly surprised by just how affordable a band of this quality can be.

So what can you expect when you book The Shakers? This is a band that loves what they do. They'll turn up on time so you don't panic, set up their equipment quietly and efficiently and then perform a blistering set of dance floor fillers in their usual energetic and fun way. You and your guests will be talking about this band for months after your event.

If you choose to get an instant quote, it will be based on the six piece line up with male and female vocals and live sax.  Other combinations are available, just ask.

Look at the long list of unsolicited testimonials to see what other people who have booked The Shakers really think of the band. Here's part of a recent testimonial that pretty much sums this superb band up;

"We had many comments that it was the best wedding they had been to with such a versatile upmarket band, couldn't fault anything!"

This is a great wedding band from Glasgow who love to perform across Scotland.

Reviews

The Shakers

What can we say about this band - outstanding from start to finish. They made the day even more special with the set they put together. Incredibly talented artists and kept the dance floor busy all night. We requested both a ceilidh and a covers set, both were equally as good. We had also asked them to play a Frightened Rabbit song for us, which they absolutely nailed! The 'dance-off' portion of the set was also great fun. To top it off they all seemed really nice people. Would thoroughly recommended The Shakers for any event you had planned, you won't be disappointed.

The Shakers

Absolutely fantastic band! Every song sounded amazing and they were so diverse! Such a fun night and all our guests have been commenting on how good the band was! Great energy in the room all evening! Thanks again guys!

Booking through Hireaband was also easy and the team kept us up to date throughout 10/10 service!

The Shakers

The Shakers were amazing, brilliant band and great communication. Thanks guys x

The Shakers

The Shakers were absolutely amazing at our wedding reception. They read the crowd well and played all the right songs, keeping the dance floor full all night! Our guests were raving about them for days and to top it off, they were genuinely great people! 100% recommended these guys for any function.

The Shakers

The Shakers were fantastic! Great song choices, flexible, fun - dance floor was never empty. Thank you!

The Shakers

The Shakers were fantastic - thoroughly enjoyed the set and the flow they created. The dancefloor was always busy and many of our guests commented on how great they were. They split the ceilidh section in two - doing one half of the dances early, and before our photographers left, and the second part later in the evening. That was the band's idea and we appreciated them suggesting that to us.

Again, can't thank the band enough for helping us all celebrate and keeping all our guests entertained throughout the evening!

Cheers! Craig & Jennifer

The Shakers

The band are absolutely fantastic! We had a special request for our first dance and they absolutely nailed it. We had so many comments on the night saying how good the band were and everybody absolutely love them. Thank you for playing for us and making it a night to remember.

The Shakers

The Shakers were absolutely outstanding!!
All our guests made comment about how great every song was and how well the ceilidh was conducted. The mix of songs were just fantastic..!
I'm extremely grateful to the band for coming to our rescue with 24 hours notice after our original band contracted Covid. The Shakers were so relaxed and told us not to worry and they instantly put us at ease.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to all future couples looking for a wedding band.

The Shakers

We can't thank Hireaband enough for their service and support in providing us with the band for our wedding! The Hireaband team were prompt with their replies and always able to answer any questions we had. This was particularly helpful when we had to re-schedule our wedding due to the COVID pandemic. Our band 'The Shakers' were incredible! We have had so many compliments from friends and family. The dance floor was always full thanks to them! Each member of the band is a talented musician and this shone through each and every song. We are delighted we chose them as our wedding band and can't thank them, or Hireaband enough! Thank you, from the new Mr & Mrs Reid :)

The Shakers

The Shakers were brilliant, had so many compliments on the music!
They were so accommodating with us because our date changed so many times. They even learned a song that wasn’t on their set list for our first dance. I cannot rate them highly enough and they truly were fantastic.

The Shakers

The Shakers, a wonderful talented band who kept our party going all night long, I don’t remember seeing the dance floor empty at anytime during the night.

Thank you one and all, a big fat 10 out of 10.

Charlotte & Johnny

The Shakers

The whole experience from start to finish with Hireaband and The Shakers was excellent. Having to move our wedding dates on three occasions hireaband did an excellent job keeping us informed and accomodating our requests each time with no issues. The band were very easy to communicate with selecting the songs we liked from their setlist and also asking for them to learn one for our first dance which wasn't on the setlist. This was no issues for Jamie and the shakers.

On the actual day they arrived early and set up very discretely and Adam tied in with us to run through the plan. First dance, Ceilidh and then the setlist. They did an amazing job of getting everyone up on the floor and managing the Ceilidh for a group who didn't really know what they were doing. Evening flowed so well couldn't have gone any better. Adam recommend playing moves by jagger which wasn't on our selection of songs but ended up being one of the highlights of the night with the saxophone player performing an amazing solo on the dance floor to the bride.

Had a great time and would highly recommend both The Shakers and Hireaband to anyone. Thanks again.

The Shakers

There are not enough words for how unreal The Shakers were from start to finish. From when we booked them to when they left our venue they were amazing. With all restrictions the band could not have been more accommodating but you did not even notice that they were in place. All of the band made our night and our guests. Just amazing!

The Shakers

Booking the band for the wedding was a lot easier task than I had anticipated, the Hireaband team are very helpful, friendly and easy to deal with. They really helped in making it a simple straightforward process.

As for the band, The Shakers - absolutely tremendous. Bit of a mixed crowd at our wedding but the bands excellently diverse repertoire from oldies to modern pleased everyone! Having 3 different singers in the band really helps mix it up throughout the night and who doesn't love a live sax?!
Lots of guests hardly left the dance floor all night! My legs were sore for a few days from all the dancing I was doing, didn't sit down all night!
Fantastic night and lots of glowing feedback received about the band. Thanks very very much!

The Shakers

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and the band for playing at our wedding. We had the most perfect day and you made it SO much fun! Thank you so much for adding Mumford & Sons' 'I Will Wait' and 'Country Road' to your set list-you played/sang them to perfection and we loved them! So many of our friends and family have commented on how brilliant you were and you really had everyone up and dancing. Thank you for making our wedding so fun-filled and we will definitely be recommending you!

The Shakers

The band were absolutely fantastic. We loved them and all our guests commented on how good they were. From start to finish the dance floor was crowded. Would have no problem recommending them at all.

The Shakers

What can I say? The music that you and the band provided on Friday evening at our wedding was just fantastic. The set flowed perfectly and the "look of love" was a super first song. There are versions of Young at Heart all over Facebook and the atmosphere you created in the room was electric. We are still buzzing. Please give a big thanks to the band for learning the few reggae songs and other additions.
I would highly recommend your band for any function in the future, Superb!

The Shakers

Anna and I would just like to say a huge thank you for an amazing bit of boogie at our wedding reception.
The dance floor was full all night, showing just how much people were loving the music. Thank you also for taking the time to learn the song for our first dance. We would have no hesitation in recommending the band to any friends in the future.
Thanks again for a great night, and we hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did.

The Shakers

Thank you so much to the band for such an amazing experience on Saturday there. We have had so many people message us to say how fab you guys were. The setlist was incredible and you were all brilliant!

You guys were absolutely awesome!! Never an empty.floor all the time you played.....says it all !!! Thanks so.much for playing.such an important part in my.daughters wedding !!

The Shakers

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for last night! You guys are absolutely fantastic!
Couldn't have wished for a better band for our day, means the world!

The Shakers

Absolutely fantastic!!!! Made our wedding! So many compliments on the band, kept people dancing all night Would definitely recommend to any couple arranging a band for their wedding. Delightful solo for me the Bride by the saxophone player, recorded by numerous guests it was impressive. Professional Vibrant and warm personalities. You guys are the best wedding band on the scene!

The Shakers

Thank you so much for playing for us on the 13th we all had a fantastic night which was made so, by great music and great musicianship. All our guests loved your set and were dancing all night - so exceptional considering it was organised last minute thanks for saving our night!!!

I have had a great experience with Hireaband, always on top form, the bands have been great that we have hired, and I would recommend them to everybody....... Many thanks to all.

The Shakers

I'd like to give a HUGE thank you to the band for making our wrap party and finale to our final series something unique and special! Every taste and genre was catered for, from rock and pop, to old classics and even ceilidh dancing ! (Cheekily incorporating the Still Game theme tune in a Gay Gordon' no less !)
The vocals versatility and musicianship was top class and there was also room made with ease for special guest singers and other guest musicians to join in.
Thank you so much, a great and memorable night was had by all, and you're always welcome in The Clansman.

The Shakers

That was an absolute treat playing with you at the Still Game wrap party.
Tremendous fun and a real bonus renewing our Kick Reaction appreciation society.
Ps your sax guy did a great job on Young at Heart

The Shakers

The Shakers were tremendous. A great bunch of people who gave us a playlist tailored to our tastes and our guests went home raving about them. Absolutely superb wedding band!

The Shakers

Hi Jamie, just wanted to say a huge thank you for your brilliant performance at our wedding on Friday. The music added to a wonderful day and everybody left raving about the band so no doubt your name will be getting passed about. Hope you've had a great weekend and thanks again!

The Shakers

I booked the band through hireaband who were very helpful (Gaye Young).

We had heard The Shakers before and they had been excellent. They didn't let me down, they were also excellent at Lindsay and Chris's wedding.

Brilliant group!!

The Shakers

Hi Jamie, just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your band mates!!!! Absolutely everyone was raving about how amazing you guys are!! You were all unbelievably good!! Could not have been a better day!! Thanks again and please pass on my message to your other band members!

The Shakers

Thank you so much to The Shakers for playing at our wedding! What a fantastic band!! We had so many compliments from the guests and we had the time of our lives!

The Shakers

Jamie and the band, Just to say a HUGE thank you for playing our wedding at the zoo last weekend. You guys were AMAZING. I know that at least one of my guests wanted to speak to you about booking their wedding!

We are so chuffed to have had you with us that day, and the sax break out is still a topic of conversation. You guys really went all out - and far surpassed any wedding band I've ever heard. Extra kudos for the guitarist nailing that don't stop believing trill

The Shakers

Hi Jamie just want to thank you and the rest of the band for a brilliant night we all had. We can’t thank you enough. Your version of our first dance was spot on better than we could have believed. All our guests were saying that it’s the best wedding they have been to and that your band was brilliant. Thanks again

The Shakers

Just wanted to say thank you for a most fantastic night last night. All the guests said how much they enjoyed the band and most importantly, Richard and Natalie thought you were sensational. People were dancing the whole evening and Natalie loved the saxophonist doing the “dance off” with her.

Everyone would highly recommend your band.

Thank you again.

The Shakers

Just to let you know the band were terrific on Saturday at Oxenfoord. Perfect balance of music for all tastes and the ceilidh music fairly got everybody moving.

The Shakers

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for playing at our wedding. You did a great job. Everyone was happy and had a good time. The feedback we got from others was also awesome. Me and Camilla where really happy with the first song as well. Perfect!

The Shakers

Absolutely amazing service from enquiring to right through to the band on the night.
Great communication from hireaband office and from the band.
On the night the band were on top form- everyone was up on the dancefloor.
Thank you so very much.

The Shakers

The Shakers were AMAZING!!

After a long time listening to other options I knew I wanted this band. They covered our requests, which were varied! They called the dances and walked our guests (including some American and Canadian visitors) through the ceilidh section. The band were professional throughout and also a lot of fun! With seven musicians in the band, as we added the ceilidh option and had wanted male and female vocalists, my music teacher friends were seriously impressed with their diversity and talent.
To top it all..... a saxophone led conga!

Totally the best money we spent on our wedding. My mum has already told some of her friends who have engaged sons and daughters that if they want the 'best night ever' .... That's a quote from our guests.... then try to get this band.

They made our night so much so we would love to do it all again!!

Thank you so much,

The Shakers

We hired The Shakers to play at our wedding and we were not disappointed. They did a lovely version of our first dance song, a great ceilidh set and then kept the dance floor full all evening with a well chosen mix of songs, including a couple of special requests. Our guests all commented on how great the band were. We would highly recommend them!

The Shakers

The band were great from start to finish and had the dance floor full for most of the evening. They had a great mix of music which catered for everyone. I would highly recommend The Shakers to all. My guests were all very complimentary and loved the music. Thanks to all the band and we hope they enjoyed the evening too.

The Shakers

We just wanted to say thank you again to you and the rest of The Shakers for playing at our wedding on May 20th. You were amazing! We had only listened to clips online so took a bit of a risk in booking you, but you really surpassed our expectations.

So many people commented on how great the band were and lots asking who you were. I don't think anyone under 50 sat down for the last 2 hrs of the wedding!!

Thanks also for doing our requests and such a nice job of our first dance song.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.

The Shakers

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing for us on our very special day. We cannot praise you enough. You were so accommodating, friendly and absolutely fantastic! The range of songs and the standard was exceptional. We were completely blown away and so many of our guests commented on 'how amazing the band were!'

We wish we could go back and dance the night away listening to you play all over again.

You gave us a night we will never forget and we are truly grateful.

The Shakers

The Hireaband website was extremely beneficial in the process of choosing a band for our wedding. We selected The Shakers and were not disappointed. The band were absolutely fantastic. They were accommodating, friendly and sounded brilliant. They played a great selection of songs and the dance floor was always busy. We cannot praise them enough and would like to thank them for making our wedding day so memorable.

The Shakers

My husband and I hired The Shakers to play at our wedding reception on Saturday 10th December. Both ourselves and our guests hugely enjoyed their set and the dance floor was often packed during the night. We hired the 6 piece band option which includes a male and female singer, drummer, guitarist, keyboard player and saxophonist. It was a brilliant touch to have an additional vocalist and also a saxophonist. The band's manager (Jamie) was good at discussing with me which songs we wanted to be played on the night and also gave us helpful advice on floorfillers to select (which appeared to have the desired effect!). We will definitely be recommending this band to others. Thanks to Hireaband for helping to set all of this up.

The Shakers

The whole band were amazing and weeks after our wedding people are still talking about how great they were!! One of our guests requested a song they didn't know and they spent their break learning it for us!! They were so friendly and could not recommend them more!!

The Shakers

The Shakers were absolutely brilliant! Our crowd needed a little bit of encouragement to get dancing so the shakers decided to do a ceilidh which got everyone dancing and after that the dance floor was full! The saxophonist was particularly good, he led a conga line out into the venues garden whilst still playing. The band were all really friendly and professional. Highly recommended!

The Shakers

Just like to say that the band The shakers were amazing at our wedding. Not only did we love the band but everyone at the wedding couldn't praise the band enough.
First class band and would highly recommend the band to anyone.
Again many thanks.

The Shakers

The band were fantastic. Everyone loved them. Highly recommended.

The Shakers

Hi Gaye,
Just wanted to pass on my thanks to everyone at Hireaband as we had a fantastic wedding and the band (The Shakers) were great! They have been getting compliments from everyone (especially the saxophonist!) They kept everyone dancing all night, their music was varied and really kept the night flowing fantastically! Please pass on our sincere thanks and compliments to them as they did a great job.

The Shakers

I just had to contact you as everyone was SO impressed with " The Shakers" at our daughters wedding reception, we have had so many positive comment about the outstanding music and choice of songs, they really ticked all the boxes in more ways than you could ever imagine, the dance floor was NEVER empty all evening which is testament to them all, if you wish to give me as a recommendation to anyone feel free.

A number of our friends have had wedding bands in the past few years and from there feedback "The Shakers" by far have outshone them all. We had many comments that it was the best wedding they had been to with such a versatile upmarket band, couldn't fault anything!

Well done to them all and them all so much for putting the final touch onto a very special occasion.

The Shakers

The Shakers

Well what can I say? The Shakers made our wedding they kept the dance floor alive thank you so much. Real good choice of music thought out the evening.

The Shakers

The Shakers were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Firstly, whilst setting up, they couldn't have been more pleasant. Our dance floor was packed all night - and full of actual dancers, who are normally hard to please and very picky with their music choices!! No guests left early and at the end of the set they were all screaming for an encore. They made our evening fantastic.

The Shakers

Hi Lisa, The band was absolutely amazing at our wedding. They had everyone up dancing all night and people kept talking about how good they were.

The Shakers

Hi Heather It was a brilliant performance by the band, with a superb choice of music. Many of our guests commented on how good the band was & also enquired as to who they were & how we found them. We would have no hesitation in recommending them. Well done guys. Thanks again.

The Shakers

Dear Hireaband, I would like to thank the band The Shakers for performing so well at our wedding. They were lively, varied and very entertaining and had everyone up dancing to either ceilidh or pop music. They were also very professional in their presentation and appearance. I would definitely have no hesitation in recommending The Shakers for any kind of function and especially for a wedding. Thank you so much for arranging this for us.

The Shakers

Hello Hireaband, Would HIGHLY recommend THE SHAKERS to anyone looking for an amazing sounding band. Everyone at the party mentioned just how great the band were and who were they. Great bunch of guys and girl .... Thanks for giving everyone a great sound!! The dance floor was never empty, my feet ache this morning!

The Shakers

I would just like to say what an excellent band The Shakers are. They played a wide and varied selection of music throughout the evening. They were courteous and polite when speaking with them. They kept the music flowing and didn't have large gaps between tunes/songs. Several of our guests also commented on what an excellent band they were. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend The Shakers to any friends or relatives looking to book a band whether for a wedding or other function. Thank you The Shakers.

The Shakers

The Shakers were absolutely fantastic. What a professional band and they sounded amazing. We had lots of comments from our guests especially regarding the saxophonist - he really made it!! Thanks again and we will be recommending to all our friends and family!I was very pleased with the service i received from Hireaband. I was also delighted with the band, The Shakers - they were excellent and really made the evening part of the wedding. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone, they were fantastic!!

The Shakers

We hired The Shakers for our wedding and they helped to make our day fantastic. My husband and I had spent a long time trying to choose between having a ceilidh or a cover band, so we were delighted when The Shakers offered to provide us with a live ceilidh for the first hour of the evening before moving on to covers. The ceilidh really got everyone in the party mood. All the dances were called which was perfect for some of our family from overseas. Moving on to the covers section of the evening, the music continued to be outstanding. The Shakers choice of songs got everyone up dancing and we had a great time with all of our friends and family. I thought the vocals were excellent. The Shakers were true professionals, creating the right atmosphere for a wedding reception, everything went without a hitch. Thanks again for making our day wonderful. When the last song finished I really didn't want it to end!

The Shakers

Can't fault Hireaband one bit. It was so easy booking the band for my wedding through you, I received the contract straightaway and it was a great weight off my mind knowing that the band were secured. It also was really easy to contact anyone at the office, as i needed duplicate copies of the contract and this wasn't a problem, it was also great being put in touch direct with the band as we met up with them a few weeks before to see them play. The Shakers were FANTASTIC, can't thank them enough for making the night such a success, the dance floor was packed all night and they agreed to play on for an extra 1/2 hour. Everyone was asking where we had found the band as they were so impressed. Thanks again and i will be recommending your services!

The Shakers

Great band, all the guests kept dancing to the very end - a good sign of a great band!
