Colin and Tori Reid (Lodge on Loch Lomond, Luss)
Splendid Gentlemen played our wedding on 6th July 2017 and no review we could do could truly explain how amazing they were. Prior to the big day, the communication with Dee was fantastic. As we live in Australia, we didn't get the chance to see the guys live and based our decision on the videos on YouTube - although we were never worried about that. From the first dance to the very end the dance floor was full.We also had a few ceilidh dances which the lads were able to explain very well - especially considering it was the first time for half of our guests. During the break the boys were really friendly and happily chatted to everyone. All of our guests gave us glowing compliments about the band and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone else looking for a wedding band!I wish we could afford to fly them over to play at our Australian celebration in a couple of months!
Nicola and Michael Ewen (Ugie House Hotel, Keith)
The guys played our wedding on the 1st July and we couldn't of dreamed of a better band! They were absolutely fantastic, the loveliest group of guys ever and nothing was a problem for them. They played our first dance which they learned amazingly and took requests from our guests with no problems at all, even playing a bit of a song the didn't actually know! I cannot recommend these guys enough. We have had so many of our guests asking who they were cause they were so good! Thank you so much for finishing off our day so well, the dance floor was never empty and my husband and I certainly enjoyed ourselves along with all our guests! 5 stars is not enough for you guys!
Darra and Sarah Gill (The Glasshouse, Edinburgh)
The Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding in Edinburgh last month. For our wedding we wanted current music that would keep the dance floor filled. The lads didn't disappoint and were absolutely fantastic. Many of our guests still comment on how good the music was and ask where we found the band. My uncle owns a bar in Dublin and is talking about bringing the Splendid Gentlemen over to Ireland for a gig!! I have never seen a crowd so disappointed when a band stopped playing! Thank you Splendid Gentlemen for making our night so special and enjoyable! You were awesome!
Dana and David Hill (Busby Hotel, Clarkston)
Splendid gentlemen played at our wedding on 7th July 2017 and I danced the whole night! You are all so talented and every single person commented on how amazing you were. You were so down to earth which made everything so relaxed. Thank you for making our wedding reception so magical! Our first dance 'Friday I'm in love' was absolutely amazing. I will remember that moment for the rest of my life!
Dana and David Hill (Busby Hotel, Clarkston)
The band played at our wedding and couldn't have asked for better. The lads are all so friendly and amazing musicians! Everyone was commenting on how great they were and I would highly recommend!
Dr. Gary Reid Hughes and Dr. David Reid (Royal College of Physiciand and Surgeons of Glasgow)
The guys played at our wedding on the 24th of June. I have nothing but praise and thanks for the band who were fantastic from start to finish. There wasn't a moment of the night where there was space on the dance floor and so many of our friends and family commented how "splendid" they were!!
The choice of music was a triumph from modern to old-faves and it suited everyones tastes.
Our first dance was "Ho Hey" and they did such a great version it was one of the best moments of the whole day for both of us!
Thank you so much to Dee and all the guys!!
Catriona McEntee (Wedding Guest)
Brilliant band. Dancefloor was packed the whole night.
Rachel Martin (Wedding Guest)
Not only did you rock the dance floor at my sisters wedding in The Glasshouse on 9th June, you also gave my lil dude a drum lesson! You made his night, he's whacking the drum sticks off every surface at home! Fantastic night, you truly are gentlemen! Next time, you come to Ireland!
Craig and Gemma Bryson (Brig ‘O’ Doon)
What can I say?! Absolutely fabulous. Couldn't of asked for a better band and nicer guys to play our big day. Wish we could do it all again. The dance floor was jumping from start to finish! Thank you so much!
Harriet Hill (Wedding Guest)
What a fantastic band !! the dance floor was never empty that is what makes a good wedding !! Thanks again for a great night and would recommend anyone having a wedding to get them honestly first class.
Lorraine Wylie (Mother of the Bride)
These boys just played at our my daughters wedding in Brig o doon, the floor was jumping from the first dance! Absolutely fantastic!! Everyone had a ball. And they are perfect gentlemen lovely boys thank you so much x”
Laura Samson (Wedding Guest)
Fabulous band! everyone was dancing from start to end!
Taylor Wylie (Sister of the Bride)
Just amazing!! Every single person was up dancing from start to finish.... So many people asking who you were wanting to book you for future events!!! best guys about ever, so lovely, genuine and great artists!!
Sonia and Paul Kelman (Mains of Lauriston Farm, Montrose)
Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding in May and to say we are delighted with our choice is an understatement. The guys we're phenomenal and could play everything our crowd shouted at them! Just amazing.”
Beth and Callum Simpson (Portavadie Marina, Loch Fyne)
We hired Splendid Gentlemen for our wedding on Friday and they were absolutely incredible! The energy, passion and amazing playlist kept everyone on the dance floor all night and we couldn't be happier! Thank you so much!
Graeme and Cheryl Crawford (Seamill Hydro, Seamill)
“Splendid Gentleman rocked our wedding in April this year at the Seamill Hydro. We couldn't have asked for a better band to guide us through the night.
Dee made the whole booking process so easy and even changed the date and venue with no bother. Communication leading to the big day was great and very helpful, advising on song choice etc.
We asked them to learn a Powderfinger song which they pulled off without a hitch, the Aussie contingent were well impressed!
I had asked Dee for a rocking night and these gentlemen certainly obliged. The floor was full all evening, more so with the rock songs opposed to the classic wedding songs, so much so that the second half of the night was just rock hit after hit. They even played Pearl Jam - Even Flow twice just for me as I missed it the first time around.
Everyone was saying how great these guys were, one of my mates saying, "If there was ever going to be a mosh pit at a wedding, it'd be yours!".
Thank you gents for a fantastic night and friendly banter. You truly are Splendid Gentlemen.
Wayne and Tasha O’Hare (Double Tree by Hilton, Dundee)
Splendid Gentlemen played our wedding on 09.08.14 - reading through their other reviews I can relate to every single one. The guys are absolutely fantastic, so down to earth and very accommodating. They made that much of an impression that people still ask us who our wedding band were 2.5 years later! What really made our day was them allowing my Father-in-Law to sing our first dance, a request they had every right to refuse but were so on board with it they sat back and watched him, then congratulated him on his performance!
Emily and Scott McFarlane (Byre at Inchyra, Perthshire)
Me & my husband Scott booked Splendid Gentlemen for our wedding on 5.10.16 and these guys deserve more than 5 stars!
Not biased because we are old friends from school - I had been following them on social media for a while and got back in touch after years and was send a very professional promo video to get a taster as to what they are like. We booked them straight away! On the night they were just fab! EVERYONE, and I mean everyone was up dancing - grannies, mums, pals, kids, me! Everyone was asking me who and where I found them. They chatted with my guests, and even took a back seat when my husbands grampa got up to belt out 'My Way' haha! Not only was it great to see old pals, they were just on point with reading the crowd and playing the perfect mixture of music. Always communicating in yhe build up to the day as well, asking if any specific requests etc - nothing was a problem. Highly recommend and make sure you get in early and book them! There is a reason they are so busy...
Thank you again guys for everything!
Paul and Siobhan Hanson (Hotel Colessio, Stirling)
I hired the band for my wedding on 04.11.16 and the dance floor was never empty. I want to say a huge thank you to the band!!
Kevin and Nicola Murray (Dalmeny Park Country House Hotel, Barrhead)
We had the Splendid Gentlemen play on Saturday for our wedding and what a night! You guys were amazing and kept everyone entertained on and off the dance floor. Thanks again for making everyones day/night so enjoyable!
Jenni and Dale Mudie (Rufflets Country House, St. Andrews)
Absolutely outstanding. This band made sure that the dance floor at our wedding was never empty. Cannot thank you enough for being our band - such a lovely group of guys and I would be the first person to recommend you to anyone looking for a band for any occasion. Everyone who came to the wedding have and I am sure will continue to compliment us on our choice. Thank you guys love Jenni and Dale
Therese and Craig Allan (Colzium House, Kilsyth)
We had the Splendid Gentlemen playing at our wedding in July 2016. They were absolutely brilliant in any shape and form! They even added a few ceilidh songs to their set after a request from one of our wedding guests. The dance floor was always full! Thank you millions for making our wedding day perfect guys! Xx
Gerrit Poortinga (Tour promoter and dear friend)
I had this band over in Friesland Holland ... strange you can t pick a 6 star rating... they are fantastic.. great band with top repertoire!!!
Leanne Bell (Wedding Guest)
Lovely guys n great music all u could wisg forum a wedding band or any other occasion xx
Scott McLaren (Splendid Gentlemen, Drummer)
Definitely 5 stars!!! There is a chance I may be a little biased, as I am in the band myself. But definitely 5 stars. Should 100% book these guys. Drummer is absolutely outstanding!! Top guy haha
Brendan and Kareen McDonald (Balbirnie House Hotel, Glenrothes)
I've a new found love for the QOTSA "No One Knows", you guys know....how to rock, the reason we hired you, cheers!
Brendan and Kareen McDonald (Balbirnie House Hotel, Glenrothes)
The Splendid Gentlemen played a great set at our wedding on the 12th of April. They arrived on time, with a quick and professional set-up. The band is genuinely interested in providing entertainment and this came across in abundance, they’re fantastic musicians and lovely guys, too, keeping in touch with them was very easy. They played the songs we requested with aplomb with lots of people commenting on how good they were (dance floor was never empty!). We were really touched that they made the effort to say goodbye before their drive home and also saying they had enjoyed themselves. Dudes, we thank you.
Tom and Kirsten Buck (Logie Country House, Aberdeenshire)
Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding a week ago today, at Logie Country House in Aberdeenshire. Our day was incredible, and Splendid Gentlemen were the perfect band to get our guests dancing and celebrating all night long.
After booking the band, Dee was really helpful in both confirming information and advising on first dance choices. On the night, all three guys were extremely personable, professional and not to mention talented. Thanks for being part of our wedding!
Mark and Louise Elizabeth Scoular (Lochgreen House Hotel, Troon)
Splendid gentlemen played at our wedding on 11/03/17. These guys deserve 10 stars - absolutely brilliant. The three nicest guys, very talented musicians and great singers. It was tune after tune and the dance floor was full all night. All our guests commented on how great the lads were. We ended the best day of our lives on a massive high because of these guys and we can't thank them enough. They were the first and only band we looked at before booking because they ticked all the boxes and so much more. Dee was really great at keeping in touch and such a fantastic help with all the little details. Thank you Splendid Gentlemen! Absolute legends!!
Joe and Jennifer Callaghan (Airth Castle, Airth)
Amazing band. Myself and my wife booked them for our own wedding and the Dancefloor was packed all night. Also found Dee to be incredibly and responsive, nothing was too much to ask of him. Everyone commented on the band the night of the wedding, so much so two different guests asked for their contact details afterwards for their own weddings.
Callum and Melissa Adam (Marycutler House Hotel, Aberdeenshire)
Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding last month, to say they were amazing is an understatement! I am so glad we chose these guys and would recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for a brilliant band. Everything that I asked for was granted and they went above and beyond to not only make sure myself and my husband were happy on the night but also all our guests who were complimenting the band the whole night :) they were very polite and friendly and absolutely amazing singers and musicians. Can not say enough great things about Splendid Gentlemen!! Thank you so much guys for making our day even more special ”
Scott and Megan Drummond (The Waterside, West Kilbride)
Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding last week & they were everything that we wanted and more! When we got engaged we knew that we wanted them to play at the wedding after seeing them play live a few times & luckily we managed to secure them! All of the chat leading up to the big day was brilliant - nothing was a problem at all. Our first dance song was perfect & my wee request for Brown Eyed Girl for the father daughter dance was granted without a problem either. The dance floor was never empty & the amazing mix of songs/genres was outstanding. We loved every second of your guys set & hope to see you again soon! Thanks so much!
Pat Wishart (Wedding guest)
My granddaughter and her husband had the band play at her wedding on 4th Feb at Drumtochty Castle. They were AMAZING!!! Everyone raved about them and they played a great mix of music,something for everyone. If you book these guys you will not be disappointed.
John and Rebecca Johnston (The VU, Bathgate)
My husband and I booked Splendid Gentlemen for our wedding on 1/10/16 and they were brilliant! The choice of songs they played kept everyone on the dance floor... even me at 35 weeks pregnant our guests had nothing but good things to say about our choice of band! Great down to earth guys as well. Couldn't recommend them enough. Thanks again for a great night.
Andrew and Claire Graham (Ingleston Cuntry Club, Ingliston)
We had Splendid Gentlemen play at our wedding in December last year. They were awesome. Cant rate them highly enough. Played requests from guests all night and there was a great variety of music. They also learnt our first dance and it was amazing - exactly what we wanted. Thanks so much guys.
Ann Kerr (Mother of the Bride)
Very professional guys and great music (& banter).
We had a great evening celebrating the marriage of our oldest daughter Lauren to one of the nicest/coolest guys you could wish for a son in law -Daniel.
The guys played a fantastic set including Thin Lizzy, Led Zep and Metallic. Sadly no Scissor Sisters though :-) Filthy/Gorgeous would be great rocked up!
Highly recommended for a fantastic time. My legs were aching the next day from dancing all night and I was the sober one!
Thank you again guys x
Ross and Yasmin Greig (Fisherman’s Hall, Buckie)
“We were lucky to have Splendid Gentlemen at our wedding dance 18.11.16! They did an excellent job with a good mix of music and everyone has mentioned how great they were! Thanks again Splendid Gentlemen x
Linsay Steel (Wedding Guest)
Very much enjoying the tunes from these guys this evening at the best wedding reception I've been to in years!
Dan and Ann Runicie (Aswanley, Aberdeenshire)
What an awesome band!!!!
Me and my new husband found these guys over a year ago and we just knew we had to get them for our wedding!
With what we had heard we knew they would be good, but they really surprised us on the day!
All of our guest are still talking about how brilliant the band was!
Would love to see them again!!!
Martin and Alexandra Robson (Banchory Lodge Hotel, Aberdeenshire)
We had the splendid gentlemen play at our wedding last Friday (28th october). We were blown away with their talent and nearly everyone that was there on the night had the same feeling! They absolutely made our night! Definitely not 'just' a wedding band!
Ross and Patricia Crombie (Auchen Castle, Moffat)
“This is band played at our wedding on 24/10 and they were phenomenal! They played the type of music we wanted (70s 80s vibe) and even played some ceilidh for us! They walked us through all the steps even though we were terrible at dancing to ceilidh they made it fun . We had such an amazing night . Thank you for not being a cheesie wedding band and making our wedding reception we won't ever forget !
Darren and Julie Ingram (Meldrum House, Aberdeenshire)
After hearing Splendid Gentlemen play a couple of times at our local bar in Aberdeen we were delighted to book them for our wedding on 8th October 2016 at Meldrum Country House. The guys were brilliant and it was great that they were part of our special day. Many of our guests young and old were commenting on how good they were. The guys played a varied mix of tunes which had the dance floor full all night. Julie even had the Gents playing some Metallica and ACDC during the night much to her delight. The 3 lads really are Splendid Gentlemen and we can't wait to hear them again. Thank you.
Kirsty Dall (Dumbuck Hotel, Glasgow)
I had these amazing guys for my wedding and the were fab!
Learned our first dance song with no problem and made it there own and kept everyone up dancing all night!
Thanks again. Everyone is saying how amazing yous were xx
Karen Lee’s (Mother of the Bride)
These gentlemen were splendid. Played at my daughter's wedding in Fort William and we were never off the dance floor, as my aching feet will testify. Thanks guys.
Sheila Moir (Wedding Guest)
Brilliant band, they've just played at my neice's wedding at Meldrum house. Great tunes, got everyone rocking!!
Andrew and Gillian Dickson (Fenwick Hotel, Kilmarnock)
We had Splendid Gentlemen play at our wedding on the 9th of September. I can honestly say they are by far the best band out there. The guys were relaxed, a lot of fun and played the type of music we wanted. For us the best comment from one of the guests, "I feel like I'm at a gig and don't want to sit down". What a response
We asked the band to play a Bob Marley song and the guys performed a brilliant rendition of the song perfectly. My husband sang a song with the band which was really special and was then upstaged by our 6 year old son. The band were amazing at going at the pace of our son and it was a moment, I'll never forget.
Our guests all said how amazing and different you guys were.
Guys, keep doing what you're doing. A life without good music is not worth living.
Much love from the Dicksons
Grant and Rachel Adam (The Mansfield Hotel, Elgin)
Myself and my husband booked splendid gentlemen through coast agency and we were not disappointed!!
Having listened and sang along to their music on YouTube we were excited to have them at our wedding in Elgin on 17/09/16.
They learnt our first song (a Celine dion track) and sang it fantastically!! It was great having their own sound to it also.
Very quickly everyone was up dancing and we had hard core ACDC fans telling us that they loved the bands cover and who were they! Compliments were flying around the whole night and every song was catchy and well sung! This band is extremely talented and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone! thank you so much guys!
Martin McLaughlin (Fellow musician)
These guys are fun friendly and super talented. In fact they are just splendid. Don't hesitate to book them for your wedding or event. 5 thumbs up.
Steven & Kayleigh Bannachan (Auchen Castle, Moffat)
We had the pleasure of having the Splendid Gentlemen play at our wedding at Auchen Castle.
Although we had a relatively small crowd of 50, the Splendid Gentleman made it feel like 500 and totally ran the show all night. The dance floor was packed the entire evening and everyone was loving the music, grannies and kids included. By the looks of some of the moves, there were people up on the dance floor that had never danced before.
Almost all of our guests have since commented on how excellent the band were and we’re all in agreement that the only disappointment was that we didn’t have more time!
Aside from being great musicians these guys were super nice, easy to talk to and made us feel at ease throughout the booking process and at the wedding. It was like having another 3 friends joining in.
If you’re thinking of booking the Splendid Gentlemen, you won’t regret it. Get them booked now before someone else gets in there first. We’re already trying to think of an excuse to book these guys again.
Thanks again for helping us take things up a notch and contributing to an amazing night!
Jacqueline Steven and Dave Millard (Venachar Lochside, Callander)
Splendid gentlemen played at our wedding on the 1st September 2016. They were AMAZING! Everyone who was there has said how good they were and not your typical wedding band, they make everything so effortless cool and take away all the cheese with still playing your wedding must haves! They learnt our first dance song and played it soo beautifully that everyone listened to every word and understood why we chose that song. I would not hesitate in recommending these guys and will have to plan a big party again soon just to have them play!
Thank you for being a part of our day xx
Melanie and Brian McConnell (Sherbrooke Castle, Glasgow)
Brian and myself just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and the band for last night, we had a fabulous time. The music was fantastic and so many guests commented on your performance! The words the best wedding band I've ever heard were used by my friend who is a huge live music fan and a frequent wedding attendee lol Your version of can't help falling in love was beautiful and to be able to jive with my dad to Sweet Caroline was the icing on the cake!!
Nicola and Martin Hillhouse (Lodge on the Loch, Loch Lomond)
We just wanted to mail to thank you's again for playing at our wedding on 29.06. You's where outstanding. I'm still getting folk commenting on how amazing you's where. The version of I will wait that you done was just perfect kinda feels like our own song now. You'll deffo have to let us know when you's are in the Clippens playing so some of us can come along. Thank you again could fault you's in the slightest and would highly recommend to anyone.
George and Andrea Burt (Piersland House Hotel, Troon)
Thank you very much for being our wedding band on Sunday 21st May at the Piersland House Hotel. Scott, Craig and yourself were fantastic and we loved your rendition of Shinedown's 'I'll Follow You' for our first dance. You kept the dance floor going from Shinedown to The Proclaimers at the end. One of Andrea's friends was there who has you guys playing at her wedding in September - she wasn't disappointed!
Once again, thank you very much - we'll be sure to recommend your services to friends and family.
Lindsay and Rory Brand (Meldrum House, Aberdeenshire)
Splendid Gentleman played at our wedding in Aberdeen in October. These guys were amazing! The dance floor was never empty and so many guests commented on how good they were.
Dee was great to deal with in the run up to the wedding, we found him to be quick to respond to emails, helpful, friendly and organised – nothing was too much trouble for him.
On the day the band were professional, well dressed and most importantly lovely people who took time to speak to both my husband and I during the night. The guys were genuine and I loved the fact they took an interest in us, asking why we had picked our first dance and what some of our favourite songs were.
We quickly realised all 3 members of the band are very talented musicians, as we asked the band to take quite an up-beat song and slow it down for our first dance. I had no idea what to expect, but I can honestly say we were blown away with the arrangement they came up with. The great thing about Splendid Gentlemen was they were so good at judging their audience - it felt like I was saying “I love this song” every time a song started! We also had a couple of ceilidh dances throughout the evening and again, this is something that worked really well.
Splendid Gentleman made our wedding, and looking back at photos it is obvious all our guests had a brilliant time!
Louise & Paul Simpson (Canadian Hall, Haddo, Aberdeenshire)
So just wanted to say from us both, thanks so much for being our band at our wedding in November 2014, such a professional band from the start when we first got in contact and to finish at the end of the night, everyone was gutted when you finished! We absolutely thought you guys nailed our first dance and so glad you learned this as it’s not a song you hear at weddings. All our guests commented on how brilliant you were and how there was always people on the dance floor. Was great to come along and see you guys playing at Mains of Scotstown and Newburgh after the wedding, great live band!
Couldn't highly recommend you guys enough and couldn’t have wished for a better band for our wedding.
Joanne and Daryl McIntosh (Dalmahoy Marriot Hotel, Edinburgh)
Our amazing wedding day continued into the evening thanks to Splendid Gentlemen. Every one of our guests commented on how good the band were. Fantastic musicians and absolute stellar guys anyone reading this who are looking for a wedding band should look no further and book them just now. An absolute pleasure to deal with from the start right through until they packed their van to head home. Again a big thank you from us and especially for performing 'the secret song’.
Jenna and David Baillie (Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld)
You guys truly are splendid, best wedding band we've heard by a mile. You are do talented and the dancefloor was full all night. Lots of guests commented on how good you were and also how good you guys looked - totally unique style! Thanks again for making our reception perfect.
Jennifer and Callan Cormack (The Mansfield Hotel, Elgin)
Thank you so much!our guests loved you as did we.you played our first dance brilliantly, dance floor never empty.would recommend this band to anyone. Really friendly and took requests!amazing band. Thanks again.
Fiona and Graeme Watson (Barra Castle, Old Meldrum)
We originally found and booked the gentlemen on the strength of the videos on their website and their repertoire. They did not disappoint at all.
Dee (the front man) was really nice and was genuinely excited about learning and playing our first song and also playing some sound garden for us, which I believe was a first at a wedding for them.
The guys turned up and got set up on the day quickly and discreetly. They were all really friendly, funny and frankly I'd easy have a pint and a laugh with any of them. then we get to the best bit, they are all really damn good musicians!
Ok it was my wedding and I'm bias, but they really are the best band I've ever seen/heard play at a wedding. They may not be a 'traditional wedding band' that's a very good thing! they still took some requests, let me tell you they can smash a Beyoncé song as well as grunging it up and getting down and rocky.
We loved them and all our guests loved them, we could not have asked for anything more in a wedding band.
Splendid service, splendid music and truly Splendid Gentlemen!
Debbie and James Hooper (Fernie Castle, Fife)
We had Splendid Gentleman play at our wedding on 30th July and were extremely happy with them. From the first time I contacted Dee he was helpful, friendly and responded very quickly to any emails. We chose this band from videos we had seen online as were not able to see them live beforehand - they did not disappoint on the night. They have a huge range of songs to choose from, they managed to fit in all of our requests as well as requests from people on the night. They were professional, polite and most of all the music was amazing. We had many comments from our guests telling us how much they loved the band. I would definitely recommend Splendid Gentleman to anyone looking to book a great wedding band.
Laura and Wilson Raphel (The Eglinton Arms Hotel, Eaglesham)
My wife Laura were married on Sunday 7th August in Eaglesham and we were extremely pleased with the entire splendid gentlemen experience. From excellent two way communication on the run up to our special day, their extensive repertoire of outstanding musical taste, their ability to become flexible and learn a new one if needs be, right through to ease of payment and of course making certain that all of our guests had a fabulous time. Which they clearly did as the dance floor became utter mayhem after the first dance which is exactly how we like it. All of our guests have since commented how great the splendid gents were and I have to fully and take credit or finding these guys in a sea of wedding bands. I couldn't reccomend them enough, truly!
Susannah and Joseph Moffat (Glencairn, Glasgow)
Wow how amazing are you guys u made our wedding a night to remember you had everyone up dancing all night! Few people didn't seem too keen on the wedding band idea from some seen in the past but you guys definitely changed that! So professional and such lovely guys. The variety of songs where amazing from start to finish played all song requested by guests everyone was really impressed with you I'll defo be seeing you at another wedding/party I'm sure and will be looking forward to it. Everyone wants your details. Thank you so much again you made our night. X
absolutely brilliant from start to finish. full of energy, super talented and genuine great guys. every single guest at our wedding has mentioned the band!!!!
absolutely brilliant thank you guys we will never forget our big day!!!
Catherine Bruce Shields, (Guest at Glencairn Wedding)
Was at a wedding in the Glencairn club tonight where you were playing.
Would definitely recommend this band as their music and vocals were amazing, great band.
Kate and Bob Clark (The George Hotel, Edinburgh)
Splendid Gentlemen played at our Wedding last month 23rd July at The George Hotel in Edinburgh.
During the build up to the Wedding Dee was always happy to help and discuss any questions and queries which made the pre Wedding process simple and enjoyable. The Gents arrived in plenty of time (early even) and were set up and looking good with time to spare!
Although we wanted to play an original recording for our first dance the guys took no offence and were still more than happy to learn a song we wished to have as our second dance which wasn't within their existing repertoire! (Excellently delivered) They also did all the introductions for the first dance regardless of the recording and played it through their own system to get the best sound quality!
The bands repertoire is extremely impressive and equally so is the way that they deliver each song! The performance from all three of the Gents is professional and quality! They seemed to be enjoying playing each and every song as much as our guests for who they were playing too! The dance floor was full all night and full of energy!
All in all we couldn't have been happier that Splendid Gentlemen were with us to celebrate our big day! It was like having 3 additional friends rather than a band we hired to do a job. The Gents mingled with the guests during the break took requests and dedicated songs as and where we asked for!
Top guys - Top Performance, couldn't recommend Splendid Gentlemen enough!
Zoe and John Bicocchi (Hotel Colessio, Stirling)
Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding on 15th July! They were great! Really chilled out and professional and played a good mix of music to keep everyone happy! Would definitely recommend them! Thank you! X
Therese and Craig Allan (Colzium House, Kilsyth)
Splendid Gentlemen played our wedding recently, and we couldn't have been happier with their performance. From the moment we booked them, they were approachable and prompt with their responses to any queries, and on the day turned up in plenty of time to get everything set up. In what wouldn't have been an easy venue for sound, they got everything perfect. They were very professional but also looked like they were enjoying themselves as well, which you don't always get with wedding bands. They have a great and varied set list - and even threw in a short ceilidh section at a moments notice after a request from one of the guests. Ours was a fairly small wedding so it was a worry beforehand that the dance floor might appear empty at times, but they had everyone up dancing all night. From the youngest guests to my old grandparents, everyone had a great night and having been praising the band since. Would definitely recommend Splendid Gentlemen to anyone looking for a wedding band.
Selina and Jed Van Hagen (Broxmouth Park, Dunbar)
Splendid gentlemen men played at our wedding in June and kept the party alive all night. Dee was very organised in the run up to the wedding answering my many questions quickly and patiently. On the night they were on time and friendly to everyone. They played a great mix of songs and we're happy to take any requests we had. Thanks again guys!
Emma and Scott Rollo (Seamill Hydro, Seamill)
We were lucky enough to have Splendid Gentlemen play at our wedding on 11th June 2016 at Seamill Hydro.
My husband and I went to see the guys play in a showcase and instantly booked them.
So glad we did!!!
Dee, Craig and Scott are lovely, friendly guys and brilliant musicians!
They learned our first dance 'Al Green- Lets stay together' and it was perfect. Dee has an amazing voice and he sang our first song so well.
Our guests are still commenting on how good the band were.
They managed some requests on the night too which was great and had even learned a Wet Wet Wet song for me as my husband had told them I was a fan!
They played such a variety of songs to suit all age groups and the dance floor was full all night.
Can't recommend Splendid Gentlemen enough. We had such a great night.
Thanks again, hope to come and see you guys play again soon. x x x
Amy and Mark McGuigan (Lochside House Hotel, Ayrshire)
The boys were first class, would recommend them to anyone!!
We had a perfect night of entertainment thanks to the lads and can't thank them enough! Easily a 5 * performance.
Kelly and Chris Paterson (Maryculter House Hotel, Aberdeen)
The Splendid Gentlemen were absolutely brilliant at our wedding on Friday! They played all of the songs we asked of them and we're happy to take requests. All of our guests were up dancing the whole night and it was just perfect so may compliments and people are still saying to us how much they were loved!
Tracy and Peter Lewin (Private Residence, Biggar)
Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding on 18 June 2016. I've got to start by giving full props to Dee for dealing with all of my pre-wedding emails - I was asking questions about how much space the band would need, electricity requirements, lighting, PA equipment etc - and throughout all of this, Dee got back to me quickly and with all of the information I needed - honestly, during all of the wedding preparation madness, this was absolutely invaluable - cheers Dee!
When it came to the actual day, the guys turned up on time and got set up quickly and quietly while we were all having dinner - they were always super considerate of the rest of our guests and accommodating re fitting around everything else in the marquee. Our first dance was a cracking rendition of an old classic that got everyone on the dance floor and set the pace for the evening. It was fantastic to get a setlist mixing in songs from the 1960s, Blink 182, Electric 6 and even a bit of ceilidh! Seriously, don't try to control the whole evening's set list for these guys - pick some faves and leave the rest to them - they know how to gauge the room and even took requests! The dance floor was full throughout the entire evening which alone should be testament to how rocking these guys were! =)
All 3 of the guys were super friendly and stuck around chatting with us after the rest of the guests had gone home. They're all really down to earth, friendly and have some great stories! =)
TL:DR - Amazing musicians; friendly and professional; accommodating; stress-free and 100% worth every single penny.
Cheers, Splendid Gentlemen
Kerry and Kris Adams (Atholl Palace Hotel, Pitlochry)
Splendid Gentlemen are exactly that - 3 lovely guys who are very talented! They played a fantastic set at our wedding and were exactly what we'd hoped for in a wedding band. They played all our requests and our guests are still raving about them! Would highly recommend and would definitely book them for another event or party in the future. Thank you guys - you made our night!
Michaela and Sean Loughlin (Melville Castle, Edinburgh)
Splendid gentlemen are and amazing wedding band! They played at my wedding 21st May 2016 and I honestly couldn't fault them, they sounded amazing and created a great atmosphere, had everyone up dancing. Lovely guys who clearly take pride in their performance. Friendly and professional, I would highly recommend. Thanks for making our wedding reception so great.
Lesley and Jason Campbell (Best Western Park Hotel, Falkirk)
Me and my husband had booked splendid gentleman for our wedding reception. The guys are so down to earth n really nice guys. They were absolutely amazing such a good band they play a mixture of different music all my guests had a good night and thought the exact same about the band. If you are looking for a band a would definitely recommend them.
Louise and Allan Williamson ( Tillmouth Park Country House Hotel, Cornhill On Tweed)
We booked Splendid Gentleman for our wedding on 2nd June. Dee maintained contact with us from the outset. We had chosen a new track for our first dance which the band were happy to learn beforehand. All three guys are friendly, polite and professional, they are real musicians who clearly enjoy what they do. The music sounded great and they catered for all ages, everyone was up dancing until midnight. Look no further, these guys rock!

Sophie and Patrick Lambert (South Lissens Pottery Marquee, Buckie)
Delighted that Splendid Gentlemen made the long (looong) trip north to our wedding last weekend! The guys were brilliant at staying in touch and had the whole crowd up and dancing all night long. Professional and plenty of fun, I would definitely recommend them for any event!
Alyson and Charles Edward Brooker (Forbes of Kingennie, Dundee)
Splendid Gentleman are the perfect wedding band! Dee is a hilarious yet professional manager and frontman, as well as an incredibly talented musician, as are all the boys. Their repertoire is just that little bit different to your traditional wedding band, making them perfect for real music lovers. My groom and I were convinced we didn't want a band at our wedding, as I was determined to avoid 500 Miles and Charles was going to walk out if New York, New York was played, but Dee jumped at the chance to play all the pop punk tunes we grew up with - in fact there's a great video doing the rounds of the groom going mental to Blink 182. Still, they mixed in the right amount of wedding favourites to appeal to the older generations, it was the perfect balance, and they were happy for us to put an embargo on a couple of personal disliked tracks.
Not only that, but they completely rearranged our favourite song to make it first dance worthy, even adding a little guitar solo so it could compete with the original. Astounded. Our guests are still not done complementing us on our choice of band, saying they all had a great time, and a number of them left with flyers. We're determined to make a trip to see the guys at Whistlebinkies before too long.
Thank you so much
Sydney and Stewart Ritchie (Oran Mor, Glasgow)
What a great group of guys, thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception last Saturday! My husband and I thought you were fantastic as did our guests, we all had a blast and you handled requests brilliantly.
PS- you totally rocked Fat Lip.
Lucy and Peter McLeod (Mains of Teymouth, Kenmore)
We had Splendid Gentlemen at our wedding in April 2016 and we could not have had a better band! They sound amazing and were so interactive with the crowd, everyone danced (and sang) the night away. For a small wedding we were worried the dance floor would be empty but with constant great songs no one sat down!
Zoe and Nicky Lister (Drumossie Hotel, Inverness)
The band was fantastic. They was preforming at are wedding on the 29th April. The selection of music they played kept everyone up on the dance floor. And even the following day people from wedding was asking about this band.hopefully they play up in inverness soon so we can go watch this band again. Thank you so much for making are day even more special than what it was.
Kerr and Sherry Brown (Runningburn Farm Marquee, Kelso)
Splendid Gentlemen played at our wedding on Saturday 23rd April. They were absolutely fantastic from start to finish,so good that people are still talking about them days later. They made a two hour journey to be with us and arrived in plenty of time to get set up and ready to go. They played our first dance song perfectly and continued to impress us throughout the evening. They are a lovely group of guys who chatted away to us after they had finished and didn't feel like they just wanted to rush away. If you are looking for a band that won't disappoint then look no further than Splendid Gentlemen. Thanks guys.
Lisa Simpson (Work Training Day)
Guys, thanks for playing at my work away day – it was an awesome set. There was something for everyone which kept the dance floor full all night and it was great to see everyone having so much fun! Everybody has been raving about you since. I'll definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a band and will be sure to give you a call myself should I be arranging any other events.
Diane and Gordon McMahon (Cornhill House Hotel, Biggar)
Look no further , YOU WANT THIS BAND - I had the guys for my wedding on 27th March, they were spectacular! The band was full of energy, talented and friendly, the entertainment was top notch. The mix of music catered to everyone's tastes and my family and friends commented on how great they were, asking their name and saying how much they enjoyed the amazing entertainment. I could not have chosen a better band for my wedding and I am so happy with their performance. The guys played really well, chatted to the audience and were clearly enjoying their 'job' as they played. A must have addition to your wedding, I am 100% happy and would definitely recommend.
Sarah and Adam McDonald (Moorpark House Hotel, North Ayrshire)
We had Splendid Gentleman play at our wedding in February 2016 and they totally rocked it! The dance floor was absolutely packed the whole night and everyone complemented how amazing they were...and they really are!!! They managed to judge our crowd perfectly and every song everyone went mad for!! Thank you boys for the best night ever! What's even more special is how generally lovely & down to earth these boys are! Thank you all!
Charlotte & David Allan (Art Club, Glasgow)
We had Splendid Gentleman play at our wedding last Saturday and we thought they were absolutely fantastic. They had everyone up dancing and lots of people commented how amazing they were. Loved how they are not a typical wedding band and don't play the usual cheesy songs that you hear at most weddings. Do not hesitate to book these guys!! Will definitely be coming to one of your gigs soon. Thanks again.
Veronica Smith (Charity Ball, Fraserburgh)
We had the splendid gentleman to our forever 50 ball last night! These guys are amazing, really get a crowd going. A packed dance floor is usually a good sign and I don't think it was ever empty!! If you're looking for a band for your event these are most definitely the gentlemen to have!
Carol Reilly (Charity Ball, Fraserburgh)
I could not recommend this band highly enough. They played at our "Forever 50 Ball" in aid of cancer research last night. Every song they played was amazing! the dance floor was always full. They are talented musicians, great singers and lovely guys. I have had endless positive comments today regarding them and I truly believe they played a huge part in the success of our ball! Thanks guys - wish you all the very best.
Paula and Martin Brown (SWG3, Glasgow)
We had Splendid Gentlemen play at our wedding recently and everyone has been talking about them ever since! My husband and I have very different music taste but they accommodated us both perfectly and they even allowed our friend from The Temperance Movement to sign which was really special for us. Thanks guys for being such a huge part of our special day.
Mikey and Lynsey McLean (Cottiers Theatre, Glasgow)
Thank you guys so much for playing our wedding, you really did make it a splendid night (sorry I couldn't resist)!! The only feedback I could give you guys is that you were absolutely amazing and made sure everyone at the reception enjoyed every minute of it.
We have had nothing but positive comments about you guys from everyone at the wedding, everyone seemed to love you guys. Hopefully you get a couple of bookings in the future from it ;)!

Bonnie lads! How art thee? And where was my 2 rings when you got home?..we were all worried sick!
Gents, it was a pleasure having you at our Gala Dance....not 1 person has said anything remotely negative about you guys..quotes like "best band I've heard" and "what a brilliant band" were resounding in our ears that night...there were a few more but they had sweary words in an posh lads like yourselves dont need to hear all that!
If you need to use this as feed back on websites or if you have a rating form to fill in then I'd be happy to 5 star it no problem!
Thanks , not just from the Trust Committee but the village of St Combs, you lads brought the curtain down brilliantly on what was an already great Gala Afternoon.
Aaron and Jacqueline McIntosh (Ingliston Country Club, Bishopton)
A huge thanks for your great performance at our wedding reception at Ingliston Country Club Bishopton a few weeks ago. Everyone really enjoyed it, and more than a few people were suggesting they'd be in touch with you about their forthcoming celebrations!

Aw you guys were fantastic! Everyone said they loved the band and it was my favourite part of the day- the dj was great as well. Thank you so much for making our party so special and not cheesy!! Loved it all- still on a high but have our honeymoon soon.
Stella Lang, wedding guest (Bunchrew House Hotel, Inverness)
Never been to a wedding where the band or even a DJ was so versatile. These guys played everything from tamely to AC DC. THERE RENDITION OF HIGHWAY TO HELL WAS FANTASTIC.
Neil and Claire Imrie (Bunchrew House Hotel, Inverness)

Derek Lietch ,IDB
Thanks again guys for last night. Even the bar staff were raving about the band. It's always hard playing to a room of musicians but no probs to you. Thanks again.
Alistair and Jenifer Lawrie (Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow)
Booked Splendid Gentlemen for my wedding (Feb 2014). I went to see the band in a pub and right away I could tell these lads could play their instruments. No backing tracks, they are a 3 piece but by far and away one the best bands that I'd looked at for my wedding. I booked them more or less on the spot (without the mrs seeign them)
The band turned up very promptly on the day and were really quick to get set up. They happily learned our first dance number (which was more of a leftfield request) and I was super impressed at how tight a band they were (given they only practiced the week before). Dee has a great voice, the drummer was a class act and its rare in this day and age to find a bassist that plays proper bass (muse- hysteria should be played at all weddings as standard!).
I saw a few bands in the run up, Splendid Gentlemen were easiliy the freshest band I saw, they had good energy and looked to be enjoying themselves (a lot of other wedding bands just looked stale from doing the same set for x years)- these guys are relatively new on the scene and looked hungry and eager to put on a good set and please the audience
They played a great set (they were happy for me pick songs on their setlist), which they tailored to the audience and the dancefloor was full all night. We had an issue with the dress just before the first dance- they were happy to play some hendrix-redhouse until the dress issue was resolved.
I really couldnt fault the lads at all. Easily the bargain of the century.
Great band, great performance, great communication in the run up and really friendly guys and loads of guests (most of whom play instruments) said they were one of, if not the best wedding band they had ever seen
Thanks guys made the night
Chris and Alison Herriot (Ingliston Country Club)
We recently booked Splendid Gentlemen to play at our wedding at Ingliston Country Club, Bishopton. We couldn't be more pleased with how much they appealed to both us and our guests. Their fantastic set list had everyone up dancing all night. So many guests passed comment on how good they were. They are really nice guys, very approachable but more so, very talented musicians. We would definitely recommend them!
Jillian Moon and Gareth Steven (Loch Green)
It's Jillian Moon here, you guys played at our wedding at Loch Green on September 21st. I have been meaning to email you for ages but just haven't found the time until now sorry. We wanted to say a massive thank you to The Splendid Gentlemen for making our wedding so special and the best party EVER!!! The band were incredible and everyone has been raving about you guys - you most definitely got the party started! The dance floor was packed from the moment you began and still had guests dancing after you finished, a sign of great music and a great night. Mrs Towndrow would be proud!
Thanks again for adding to an incredible day, we had so much fun singing and dancing the night away, as well as watching our usher turn into your biggest groupie! You're all lovely people and we really wish you guys every success for the future.
