The Thankful


The Thankful are undoubtedly one of the very best Scottish wedding and function bands that it's possible to book. Imagine having a group of full time professional session musicians performing just for you and your guests at a standard that will take your breath away - all yours when you hire The Thankful.

The Thankful Wedding Band Scotland

Not satisfied with just sounding and looking great, the band is one of the most flexible acts we've ever had the pleasure of working with. For instance, their standard all male four piece line up can be supplemented with additional female vocals (the most popular option) which means they don't miss out on some of the great female anthems that blokes just can't do without tight pants. Please note there is an additional charge to extend the band to a five piece and that instant quotes apply to the standard four piece line up.

The Thankful can offer a 30 minute ceilidh set, provide you with a DJ option to keep you dancing long after the live music has stopped and finally, if you fancy some music earlier on your wedding day, Tim and Esther from the band offer an afternoon set of acoustic covers. This is a mellow set (Adele, Norah Jones, Colbie Cailatt, Taylor Swift, Jason Mraz, Michael Buble etc) comprised mostly of love songs played as your guests arrive for the evening reception.

So there you have it, one band, four options, and all backed by a team of dedicated entertainment experts that simply know the business inside out. You can't lose. Call us now for free on 08006123320 or enquire now for a direct price quote. Alternatively why not add The Thankful to your shortlist of favourites?

The Thankful is available for hire in Glasgow but are happy to travel to anywhere the party is!

The Thankful

I would highly recommend Hireaband and The Thankful. So many of our guests asked about the band and said they were brilliant.

The Thankful

Hey you guys were amazing will be recommending you 2 everyone. Was lovely to meet you all and hope to see you again.

The Thankful

The Thankful did a fantastic job at our wedding. They arrived on time and were quick to setup. The dance-floor was full all night and so many people complimented us on their performance. Both Tim and Esther were fantastic, with the band delivering some great performances as well. They completely nailed our first song so happy to recommend them.

The Thankful

The Thankful played at our wedding at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel and they were absolutely fantastic! They were extremely easy to deal with from the moment we booked them and they sang out first song beautifully. They arrived on plenty of time to get set up and were extremely organised. Tim took the time to come and speak to us when they arrived and ask how our day had been. He is a lovely guy. The dance floor was never empty and that is down to the vast array of songs that they perform. We have had so many people say how good the band were and even 4 weeks on from the wedding people are still talking about them. They really were first class. I would highly recommend The Thankful to everyone looking for a band to play on their special day. You will not be disappointed.

The Thankful

The Thankful played at our wedding at The Strathaven Hotel. We knew as soon as first heard them online that we loved their music. This was followed up by a live showcase where we heard a good mixture of songs. Dealing with Esther and Tim from booking right up to the big day was stress less and they were so professional, nothing was a problem. On the day they were setup seamlessly. Both Tim and Esther have excellent vocals and you could see the band all work really well together. Our guests were all raving about the band and the variety of songs covered. We are so grateful to the band for making our day more memorable and thank them so much for this. Would highly recommend The Thankful for any celebration.

The Thankful

We had The Thankful play at our wedding at Solsgirth House and they were fantastic. Tim was so easy to deal with, both prior to the wedding and on the day, having a chat before they started to play and also during the break. Both singers were great, as was the rest of the band. We have had a lot of great feedback from our guests after the wedding who enjoyed hearing the band play. Would highly recommend The Thankful for your wedding / function!

The Thankful

Just a little note to say that The Thankful that performed at our wedding on 27th December were amazing, everyone at the wedding commented on how good they were. The band played everything that suited everyone's taste in music and having both a male and female vocalist was just excellent also the disco they provided afterwards was perfect to end a fantastic wedding on. You at Hire a Band have been great to deal with making things so easy to organise no hassles.

The Thankful

We booked The Thankful for our wedding and they were one of the main highlights of the night as they were absolutely brilliant. Me and the wife loved them but nearly all the guests commented on how good they were which I think is a bigger testament to the band.

The Thankful

Thanks so much for your performance on the night it is exactly what we wanted and you really went down so well with our friends and family it truly was a fantastic wedding day for us and the night time entertainment capped it all off. I think that the dance floor was busy for the majority of the night which speaks for itself. You are a great band a really nice set of guys and we were so glad that you could play at our wedding.

The Thankful

Excellent service from hireaband, simple and straightforward with no hassle. A great band who played to a high standard and with great enthusiasm and made our night fantastic. Thanks to all.

The Thankful

The most supersonic covers band in the world! Imagine a covers band with all the songs being played better than the original versions. Imagine you could book, for your own function, a group of the best session musicians, playing sophisticated, organic music in every style. Well, now you can, that's what this is! You should look out for them.
