A Scottish wedding band with a quirky little twist!
A Scottish Wedding Band with a Quirky, Little Twist.
So, you’ve just got engaged and you’re now looking for the perfect band to play at your wedding. [or Corporate event, we do them too.] You now have to dive head first in to the sea of Scottish Wedding Bands available. If you’ve been shopping around, by now you’ve probably seen about 935,267,302 videos of wedding bands playing all of the same songs. There’s Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing, 1000 renditions of [insert current most popular pop song here] and that horrible Le Chic creature that has been residing at weddings for a long time now. Enough to give even the most hardy soul a nosebleed.
You’ve probably been schmoozed with pictures of manic, impossibly happy looking people in matching suits, the colour of Tie/Shirt/Waistcoat combination changes per band, and in their “About Us” every single one of them has claimed to be, “Scotland’s Busiest Wedding Band!”, “Scotlands Most In Demand Wedding Band!” or “Scotland’s Best Wedding Band!” and you’re starting to think, “Well, they cant all be. Strike me down, dear! Someone must be telling us fibs!”
Next cue the long winded passage about how immensely talented they all are. “Blah, blah, blah, with a touch of blah, blah blah!” It all starts to leave you thinking, “Isn’t this supposed to be about me?”
Yes, dear friend, it is supposed to be all about you. Your wedding is your big day. Your chance to throw a celebration that showcases and celebrates both of you and your…’youness’ together. Do you really want the same cheesy, cardboard Wedding Band everyone else has? You want something that makes a statement. Something that’s bold. Different. Something you and all your guests will remember.
Please permit us to humbly present our offerings. At Splendid Gentlemen, we like to do things a little differently. We see ourselves very much as the Anti Wedding Band. We appreciate the subtle difference between a ‘Band that plays weddings’ and a ‘Wedding Band’ and try our hardest to steer clear of as many of the cheesy things as we can that make you think, “By gum, dear! These bands have more cheddar than a collection of mouse traps. Let’s just hire ourselves a Disk Jockey instead.”
Our repertoire boasts all the songs a wedding band is expected to do, because you know your Auntie Jean will ask for it, but we like to cover everything form the 1950’s right up to current chart songs, as well as offering a host of alternative songs you never thought you could have at your wedding, like Metallica, Foo Fighters or The Offspring.
We don’t like to brag, and we’d never make an outrageous claim to be “Scotlands Best Wedding Band”, though you’d be hard pressed to find a more Gentlemanly one. We do however, now have some prestigious awards for our services. We were voted Confetti Award ‘Best Evening Entertainer 2016’ and Aspire Magazines ‘Alternative Entertainer 2017’, and yes, we think that’s totally a made up category by Aspire too, but it was still nice to receive.
If you’re looking for something a little different to bring your wedding to life, please feel free to give us a message or a call. We are rather friendly chaps after all.
Pleased to meet you. We are Splendid Gentlemen.More About Us

And we're back once again at Maggie May, Glasgow. This is your best chance to see us if you're thinking of booking us for your wedding. The last few times the place has been full to the back with friends, clients past and present as well as regulars. We're playing from 9pm-11pm with a little break in the middle. As always, please feel free to come up and say hello and ask any questions you may have. We've always got the time to talk at a gig.
