If you're after some traditional Scots sets and a mix of more modern fiddle based music - Whiskey.

Remix are brilliant

Jigsaw from Conon Bridge are also excellent and are concentrating on weddings and functions now instead of the tourists in local hotels. Google "Jigsawduo" for contact details and profiles of the two Bills and their musical talents.

i agree, the jacks are really good, will play anything you ask for and always have the floor full of dancers, had them at our wedding and were superb, id advise booking in advance though we had to book ayear in advance as they are that busy.

We had KW1 for our wedding they were absolutly fantastic they learned our first song as it wasnt one that they had done before and any other songs that we wanted they would learn to. They gave us a dance to remember.

Remix are without doubt the best band for a wedding in the county. If you can't get them then I would go for The Jacks/Colorado or whatever they're called these days.

Just a slightly different tack (as I play in a wedding band), but although a good band is a huge benefit, for me its a great audience (one that's up for a party and able to enjoy themselves) and a well laided out venue with good acoustics/lighting that make for a fabulous gig/wedding experience.

You can have the best band in the world, but if the audience isn't comfortable and in the mood to respond it can quickly turn into a poor night all round.:eek:
