If you are looking for a knock out band for your wedding, consider no other band but The House Band! They played at our wedding at House for an Art Lover in October and were simply outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for Tim and Esther. They learned our first dance and delivered it beautifully. Everyone loved them and the dance floor was packed all night. If you are going to have The House Band then you must have both Esther and Tim to sing as their voices are amazing together. Talented, professional and friendly. The House Band is simply the best band in Glasgow. Thanks guys for making our wedding day truly memorable.

This review is actually quite long, so I’ve given each section a header! ;)
The nutshell - TOP NOTCH
We were lucky enough to have The House Band play at our wedding in Ayrshire in November 2014 and in a nutshell, we could not have been happier - they were brilliant. To our requests before the wedding of what we definitely wanted and definitely did not want, Tim was upbeat and responsive to emails, making us feel confident they knew what they were doing. It was also clear they wanted us to be comfortable, that it was our day and they'd try to accommodate our preferences as much as was reasonable.
Many wedding bands have a pretty standard set list - Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, the ubiquitous U2, etc. and The House Band has all of them in their list, but what they can play just keeps on going. Only a few weeks ahead of the day we asked about a couple of songs we thought they might not have in their repertoire (or didn't see on the long song list), and quite calmly the response was 'we should be able to work them in'.
Musicianship and vocals
After having looked at a number of wedding bands on YouTube and other wedding-musician websites, you can see there are lots of talented musicians out there. But the vocals have to be good too. I found these guys and knew the musicianship was there, and yes, the vocals were there too. Tim and Esther have a great vocal partnership and don't sound like they're trying to outdo one another; their voices complement each other, rounding out the overall sound with greater depth and richness.
Honestly, if you’re looking for a wedding band and The House Band is available, don’t hesitate - they will be brilliant and if you are disappointed, it might be because you didn't tell them really what you were hoping for, not because they couldn't accommodate it. Yes, they really are that good.
This is such a glowing review it might sound like I'm a close friend, but I’m currently trying to find something similar for a celebration in Brisbane at the moment (and failing miserably!), and it makes me realise just how fortunate we were to have The House Band. You couldn’t come to Brisbane in February, could you?!
For The House Band
This bit is directly to The House Band - Tim, Esther and the guys - All our guests thought you were brilliant, and it's testament to your range and overall sound that many of the older guests stayed in the same room because they were enjoying the music and watching the more mobile guests dancing! Even my uncle in his 80s was up dancing (surrounded by ladies, of course!). Thank you so much for everything; you rounded off our perfect wedding day with a perfect performance everyone loved and we wish we could do it all over again.
And finally, sorry for the slow response on the review - moving continents is a pain and delayed our best intentions. Happy new year and all the best for 2015 and beyond!

The House Band played at our wedding at Brig O'Doon in September. They were brilliant the whole night playing a variety of music we had chosen and also doing a fantastic ceilidh with an accordion player they provided. The quality of the music, singing and playing was all great. They were completely professional and plenty of guests commented how fantastic they were as a wedding band. Thanks guys!!

DANCE FLOOR WAS NEVER EMPTY!
The House Band are very professional and a pleasure to work with. I booked the Band for the So Precious Charity Ball in 2013 and 2014, the range of songs suits every taste and our dance floor was never empty! I have no hesitation in recommending them for any function and would certainly book them again.

Hi, Just wanted to leave a review of you guys after you played at our wedding in august at the lodge on Loch Goil. I have to say you were nothing less that amazing and everyone of our guest commented on how good you were. We just wished the night could have gone on longer. 5 stars from me. Faultless!
Thanks for being a part of our big day.
