If you are in any doubt about whether to book Edinburgh Sounds take a look at what all these lovely people had to say about us…


“Edinburgh Sounds; a young vibrant band from the capital, were engaged to play for a 70th birthday party at Loch Lomond Golf Club on the recommendation of Mary Ann Kennedy. They provided great music which delighted the attendees and fully justified Mary Ann’s endorsement.”

Kenneth McLeod ,  Loch Lomond Golf Club,  29 October 2011,  70th Birthday Party,  7 Piece Covers Band inc Sax


“The band were fantastic on Saturday, as I knew it would be! Everyone has said how brilliant you all are, we couldn’t have wished for anything better. The band members were so helpful, please thank your lovely singer for announcing the cutting of the cake and your sound guy for helping out with the microphone for speeches, it all went so well. You helped to make a special day perfect for us. I hope you’re prepared to travel cos we gave out a lot of cards – absolutely everyone I spoke to was raving about you all!”

Dawn and Ali McLeod,  01 October 2011 , Inchberry Hall,  Wedding Anniversary, 6 Piece Ceilidh & Covers Band


“With an audience including many local musicians on a deliberately enforced night off this could have been a difficult one to pull off.  However, Edinburgh Sounds made the evening with their blend of high energy ceilidh and eclectic mix of songs.  Even the hardest bitten folkies had to admit it was a great bash.  Jonathan, Angela and Richard, 150th Birthday Party, 2011″

“Thank you so much Anna for providing such brilliant music all night. The band were particularly good at reading the audience, the dancefloor was never empty! Your cover of our first dance song was just wonderful and made for a very memorable start to the evening. We have had so many compliments about the band from so many guests and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you, I hope we see you at one of our friends’ weddings! Thanks again for an amazing night!”

We can’t thank all of you guys from Edinburgh Sounds enough for making our wedding reception amazing! So many of our friends and family have commented how fab you were and we have been more than happy to pass on your details to everyone that has asked. The dancefloor was full the whole night and I even managed to do a strip the willow in my wedding dress! You guys were approachable and professional and created a wonderful atmosphere. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the very high standard of music and our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without you! Thank you all so much!

“We just wanted to email you and say the biggest thank you to you and also to the band. The band were incredible- possibly even better than we remembered and that is saying something. Everybody was full of non stop praise for you guys, we couldn’t have wished for anything more! I am sure we will be providing you with more business as there were at least 3 or 4 newly engaged couples there who were very impressed. Thank you so much for everything.”

Sarah and Kevin Gascoyne, Kirknewton Stables, 02 July 2011, 5 Piece Ceilidh and Covers band with Engineer.


We just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for the superb music you supplied for our wedding party at The Caves. All our guests were blown away by the band’s amazing performance. Also the blend of Ceildh and Covers was a perfect mix for our event. Being that most of our guests had never attended a Ceildh before (including ourselves) the caller did a fantastic job ensuring we all knew the steps and got the whole room up dancing. I would thoroughly recommend your service to anyone considering hiring Edinburgh Sounds for their wedding- your professionalism and communication leading up to and during our party were second to none. We hope to see you on stage again soon…..John & Nuala

“We just wanted to express a huge thank you to Edinburgh Sounds for helping to make our wedding reception such a great evening! So many of our guests commented on the quality of the band and it was just everything we hoped it would be. After first hearing you at Gregor’s works Xmas function, we knew that’s what we wanted at our wedding (we weren’t even engaged at that point!) and we are just so pleased to have had you there. Thanks again!”

“Thank you so much to Anna and the rest of Edinburgh Sounds – you were truly brilliant!  A particular highlight for so many people was when you let the groom get up and sing with you!  You were fantastic and your range of songs and your great manner with the audience was fab.  We can’t thank you enough and we have had so many people asking about you guys… we are delighted to pass on your names and hope that we are at another occasion when you are playing!  We will definitely book you again when we next have a party.”

Catherine and Cameron McCallum, Comrie, 21 May 2011, 6 Piece Ceilidh/Covers Band with Engineer.


“We wanted lots of music throughout our day and Edinburgh Sounds were able to provide this for us, playing me down the aisle, during the signing of the register, at the champagne reception and then finally by putting on a fantastic show for the evening reception.  We had so much feedback from our guests about how much they enjoyed the music and how great they thought the band were, this was evident already as the dance floor was never empty! Anna was a fantastic help in the organising of the musical arrangements, taking onboard our ideas and making helpful suggestions based on her experience of what works well.  She even managed to reply to all of my many emails!  The band are friendly and professional and it was so good to see them enjoy performing as much as we and our guests were enjoying listening and dancing.  We had a wonderful wedding day and would recommend Edinburgh Sounds to any bride and groom, we just wish we could do it all again!”

WOW! It was quite a test for any band to play at our wedding given the inevitably ferocious dance floor (and the traditional family dance-off) – but we really did strike gold with Edinburgh Sounds! The band were utterly brilliant; flexible, fun and only encouraged the masses even more – the dance floor was wild! HUGE thanks for rounding off the best day ever, for personalising our first dance and learning a new one for our last dance – AMAZING – we’ll be sure to send all our friends your way!

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding. You were all brilliant and all our guests thought the same! I have had nothing but compliments for you all, really a super night.  Other bands I liased with before you, I found to be rather stuffy; wanting to charge you extra for everything that wasn’t exact to their ‘package’ that they supplied. We don’t have any areas to recommend for improvement – just keep doing what you are doing and you will be great. You will be at the top of our list of band recommendations for the future!”

Tanya and Pete Dunn, 29 Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow  05 June 2010, 6 Piece Ceilidh / Covers Band with Engineer


Thank you so much for playing at our Graduation Ball, we had a great night and I have been getting lots of compliments about you!

“Booking a band through Edinburgh Sounds for our wedding was the best decision we made! They were fantastic. They were so professional and made sure everyone had a great time! The dance floor was jam packed all night and since then a conversation about the wedding does not go by without someone mentioning the band and how fab they were. They certainly made our night a memorable one!”

“Just wanted to drop you a quick message to say how happy we were with the band on Saturday night. We thought you did a fantastic job of mixing the Ceilidh and covers, especially to get the Irish contingent up on the floor!  Everyone was raving about the band at the end and I hope you managed to get your number out to a few of our engaged friends, so we might see you again in the coming months!”

(I especially loved Jump at the end, and I’ve let Ian know that his legacy lives on…….)

“Thank you so much for playing at our Burns Supper (and for having patience with our terrible time keeping!)  You guys were great, everyone had a really really good night so thanks muchly!”

Edinburgh Dick Veterinary School, Burns Supper, January 2010, 5 Piece Ceilidh Band


“A fantastic band, the music and dancing was a great way to finish our day.  The band have a huge variety of songs and dances to choose from and were happy to take all those new to Scottish Ceilidh dancing through the steps to ensure everyone knew what they were doing and had a great time.  Many people who attended our event commented on how professional the band are and that they had a great stage presence, very friendly & fun.  We have hired Edinburgh Sounds twice now for our company Christmas events and will be hiring them again for future Christmas and corporate functions.”
